    "Team Cherry aren’t quite ready to pin down a release date for the Gods & Glory update, but are aiming for ‘early 2018’, so any point within the next couple months."

    ~Written in Rock, Paper, Shotgun  (2nd Febuary, 2018).

    Now it's May.

    A couple months?

    Early 2018?

    (note I'm not complaining but I feel the need to address this issue)

    Hello............I am typing this on a keyboard while also thinking of something to "blog on"

    Do you know that vessel means ship? Me neither

    Baby grub in the game looked much cuter than in real life, I just search on it a second ago

    If Hallownest is a world of bugs, then Birdnest is a world of birds?

    So if Hornet is Ghost's sibling and the child of the pale king...does this mean she's a qween of Hallownest?

    When we died in a boss battle and respond on the bench, were they creeped out by the shade's music?

    What would happened if Quirral explore the kingdom with us?

    I wanna get rid of zote so badddd, he talks too loud

    Can Mister Mushroom break the 4th wall?

    I want to hug Nailmaster Mato, he's so kind

    Elderbug for the win! 

    Am I the only one who thinks …

    About the lore page

    April 16, 2018 by Mini39928

    For a page featured on the main screen it is hugely underdeveloped. I believe that it could be a "theory based" page compiled from the information that is given to the player within the game. Ofc it will need some spoiler warning and other arnings to show that it is pure assumption but i feel like it would be better that than leave it as empty as it is right now.

    Player Achievements

    March 3, 2018 by BreadRaven

    Here is a fun fact: on Steam only 60% of the people who own Hollow Knight actually defeat the first boss (False Knight) and only 50% beat the second boss (Hornet ).

    Question: How many achievements do you have out the 57? I have 36 (at time of posting).

  • The not so great clone of Papyrus

    Everyone (probably) knows about the five great knights, right? In the game, you find Drya dead in queen's gardens, despite the fact that we were told we were going to have to fight her. Well, what if in a DLC, we get to fight her as... Brocken Vessel. Then we'd have a prequel-ish DLC were it shows how BV killed Drya, and than met it's untimely demise in anciant basin. IT'S BRILLIANT!!!!!

    Theory about the Infection [warning: opinions inbound]

    The Radiance didn't craft the infection out of nothing, she took many inspirations from existing substances,

    The Crystals from Crystal Peaks, from the hunter's journal we can assume that the crystal had some possessing powers (Crystal Hunter specifically) the ability for the infection to possess and stick onto bugs was probably taken from this.

    The Spores of the Fungal Wastes, the potency to spread through the air and the actual colouring of the infection was probably mimiced by the Radience from these spores.

    The Lifeblood, The goopy texture of the lifeblood was probably inspired to create the substance of the infection. As seen by the lightseed which resemble infected versions of the alr…

    November 4, 2017 by Hooplah222222

    so i was cheacking the kikstarter for hollow knight and found a boss that might be in hornets journey... heres the discripton of it

    One Backer boss in particular has become a major rival character to Hornet, a mysterious Assassin Bug submitted by Jaspal Boodram. Jaspal’s assassin uses its proboscis as both a blade and a whip. We don’t want to spoil the surprises around this deadly foe, but expect several encounters throughout Hornet’s journey.

    Okay so if you look closely at the stag station map, you will see an empty spot for another stag station (circled in red). This is probably, again, well known, but still I am here pointing it out. Alright, so I think this might be the Failed Tramway, or maybe some station to be added later. What is your opinion?

    Right... have any of you gone and collected the Glowing Womb? Because if you have you would have seen the big creature surrounded by what seems like the infection, or what ever is on the Aspid species. Anyhow, not sure if this is known but when it is Dream Nailed it says ...Breed...

    Random thoughts

    September 3, 2017 by KatkakePlushie

    I notice that the term spellcaster is used when describing SOUL-focused builds. But you know what would sound even cooler? Soulcaster. It's a missed opportunity if I've ever seen one. I dunno, I'm tired and headachey right now but it sounds so cool and Hollow Knight is probably the only instance where the term actually fits.

    We know respawning to be canon, as implied by some of the Little Fool's dialogue. In addition, it's implied that the Shade you leave behind after death and the Siblings are similar entities, as not only do they appear similar, but they both become passive and die in one hit after you obtain Void Heart. While the corpses/shells in the Abyss seem to be basically dead without their respective Shade, the player character is perfectly fine without their Shade, although their Soul Vessel is damaged. There are a few more details, such as the fact that the player character's shell also reappears at the last bench they rested at, but that might just be a game design thing. Still, I find it interesting how this differentiates The Knight from other v…

    You know what would be really cool? Hornet as a Dream Boss. Hence why I made a concept for one. I'm torn between calling her Hallownest's Protector or Deepnest's Heir, and I've been juggling a few ideas about the location. It would most likely be someplace associated with a memory that's important to Hornet, such as a secret room in the Beast's Den.

    HP: 1450 Damage: 2 masks

    Like always, she's agile and attacks very quickly, leaving few healing opportunities. Quick Focus may allow you to heal during her AOE attack. Fragile Strength and Fragile Heart are just as helpful here as they are for other dream bosses, as there's no risk of them breaking. Quick Slash is great for for getting more attacks in when the opportunity arises. A spellcaster/Li…

    Hollow Knight is a 2D side-scrolling action adventure video game in the Metroidvania style. It was developed by Team Cherry and released for Microsoft Windows on 24 February 2017 and is also being developed for Mac, Linux and Nintendo Switch. Development was part funded through a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign, raising A$57,138 in December 2014.

    Players explore a large interconnected world using a variety of movement and combat techniques. In classic Metroidvania style, there are areas of the world that the player cannot access until they obtain particular items or abilities. Maps for each area must be bought from a shopkeeper generally hidden somewhere in that area, and the player can also buy upgrades that place markers on the map or al…

    The Radiance is the original ruler of Hallownest, connecting the inhabitants with a hive mind until the Pale King showed up and banished it. Over time, the Radiance was forgotten by the bugs of Hallownest, only a few being able to remember it, such as the Seer.

    Vengeful over being forgotten, the Radiance infected the dreams of the residents of Hallownest, causing a terrible plague that made its victims stronger, but also drove them into a feral state, much like they used to be before the Pale King's arrival.

    The Pale King attempted to keep the Radiance sealed by creating constructs of the Void, known as Vessels or Hollow Knights, to contain the plague. After many failed experiments, he thought he had succeeded, but in time, the Hollow …

    Amy was a renowned writer in Hallownest. She was murdered by her own sister, Amone Linsamouth. If you see Amone, give her a hug. She hates hugs.

    -Amy Linsamouth

    An explorer and an artist until the plague took his dreams. Stripped of his soul, he walked into the land above never to return.

    He was the greatest warrior to never land the killing blow himself. Instead he sat by and let others enjoy the glory of victory. With so much time passed, no one remembers his name.

    Update May 21 2017: She is complete! Head on over to Damage Values and Enemy Health to check it out!

    This page will be staying as a useful page of info for others.

    This link is to an autosplitter plus a mod program (Hollow Knight Info.exe) that allows you to, among other things, view enemy HP. When enabled, if a player damages an enemy, their Geo counter will change to reflect the current HP of said enemy for a few seconds. This means, to know enemy health, you must do 3 things:

    1. Damage an enemy without killing it (this will not update your Geo-health number)
    2. Take note of the number in the Geo counter
    3. Add that number to the Damage Value of the attack you used to damage the enemy (see Damage Values for more info)

    For example, say you have a basic …
