Area White Palace

The Palace of The Pale King and his court. Mysteriously vanished from Hallownest some time after The Infection.

The White Palace is accessible through obtaining the Awoken Dream Nail and using it on the corpse of a Kingsmould in the Palace Grounds in the Ancient Basin.

Once the home of the Pale King, at an unknown point the Palace, according to Relic Seeker Lemm, vanished.

The White Palace is primarily a platforming challenge, however completing this area is only required for 100% runs and to unlock the true final boss of the game.

Tips

  • There are several hidden platforming skips that the player may use, however, some of these have been patched out.
  • The White Palace contains sets of difficult platforming sections, therefore it is advised to use a good combination of Charms:
    • Hiveblood: allows the player to wait out healing between platforming sections if damaged
    • Longnail/Mark of Pride: they provide a bigger window for the player to nail-pogo on top of saw blades
    • Deep Focus: allows the player to heal double, albeit half as slow
    • Grubsong: provides a good amount of SOUL for taking damage.
    • Grubberfly's Elegy: provides an increased percentage of SOUL recovered when equipped with Grubsong. Combined with Deep Focus, this is enough to heal fully after two hits.
    • Quick Slash: allows the player to spam the downward strike lots of times without worrying about missing the timing.
    • Dashmaster allows the player to cheese one section in which you fall between sets of retracting spikes.

Area Path of Pain

A secret, extra-challenging section of the White Palace, hidden behind a breakable wall at the beginning of the first sawblade room on the second floor. Completing this area unlocks a special cutscene depicting The Pale King and a younger version of The Hollow Knight.

Soul Totems in this area grant an endless supply of SOUL to the Knight, allowing for plenty of healing after each section.
