Hollow Knight ► 5 ADVANCED Combat Tips

This footage does have MAJOR gameplay spoilers, and I've put this in the actual video itself as well. Please do not watch until you've completed the game in its entirety.

Beginner's Guide to Hollow Knight

If you are just starting Hollow Knight and do not understand what is going on, this guide is for you. This video will walk you through how to play the game and make your playthrough much easier.

The Hollow Knight tutorial is simplistic and elegant in the way they explain almost nothing. It is up to the player to figure out how things work. If you have not played a metroidvania in a while or something is not clicking it could make the game VERY frustrating. This guide is to make life easier for new players so they can get back to exploring Hollow Knight.

What do we go over in this beginners guide?

- Benches: they heal you and respawn all enemies that are not in your current room
- Maps: Cornifer sells you mpas. They are not useful until you buy the quill from the map shop back in Dirtmouth.
- Geo: The currency of Hollow Knight. When you defeat enemies, you get fossilized shells which can be used to buy items.
- Wayward Compass Charm: Will show location on map
- Dead ends: Many areas early on require an ability to reach. make a mental note and come back later
- Soul: It is like mana. Hit an enemy with a nail to gain soul. Use soul to heal or cast a spell (once you unlock spells)
- Mask Shard: Hidden shards will increase your HP or amount of damage you can take only after you find 4 shards.
- Stag stations: Usually charge Geo and almost always come with a bench. They allow for fast travel
- Grubs: Green bugs in jars need to be freed. The grubfather will reward you with TONS of geo and items in exchange.
- Shiny items: Pick them up
Spells: Cost soul to use but more powerful than nail attacks
Charms: Can only be equipped while sitting at benches and will enhance your play style. charms require charm notches to equip. You can acquire new charm notches later.
Upgrade Nail Damage: Once you make it to the City of tears go left to find the Nail Smth
When you die: Your shade soul will be left in the place where you die. You lose all your geo and 1/3rd of your soul tank is broken. Once you get your shade back, you get your geo and soul meter back.... unless you die twice, then you get NO GEO!
Purple Mushrooms- you can super bounce off of them if you down attack
Spikes- You can down attack spikes and enemies to pogo off of them

Hollow Knight- Don't Kill the Nailsmith!

After fully upgrading your nail four times with the Nailsmith (which takes a total of 6 pale ore) you will have a tough conversation with the Nailsmith.

After fully upgrading the nail to the pure nail the Nailsmith will give you some new dialogue outside:
With a Pure Nail forged, my work in this lifetime comes to an end. My only remaining desire is to see and feel the nail strike true!

I beg you, cut me down. As my final moment in life, I want to taste the blade's exquisite edge.

After all this time, all this toil... haven't I earned it?

Do not hesitate. I beg you. Cut me down! I want to taste that blade's exquisite edge.

Do Not Kill the Nailsmith! In this video I will show you how you can save the Nailsmith's life and he can live happy with Nail Master Sheo.


Note: The Nailsmith will not move to Sheo's hut if the player has not acquired Great Slash. He will disappear after being spared and only appear in Sheo's hut after the player has gained the ability and rested on a bench afterward.
