Like “builds” in other games, the Charm system in Hollow Knight is similar in deciding how you approach the game’s content. There is no absolute or correct way to play Hollow Knight, as players are free to choose whichever suits their style best out of the 40 available charms.
While some may work perfectly for others, it might be a different case for someone else. This article will teach you about Charm interactions and Combos in the game.
Charm Interactions and Combos in Hollow Knight
There are actually a total of 45 charms in the game, but you can only carry 40 as you’ll need to replace the other five with new charms throughout your journey in Hallownest.
After collecting all 40 charms, you will be granted Salubra’s Blessing, allowing you to automatically refill your Soul vessels when you rest on a bench.
I know the number of charms might be too overwhelming for you, so I’ve picked up some of the best Charm combinations to help narrow down your choices.
Out of the 40 available charms you can carry, here are the interactions and combinations you can utilize in the game:
Sprintmaster + Dashmaster: increases your running speed to the fastest it can get
Sharp Shadow + Dashmaster: increases the damage dealt by Shadow Dash from 1.00x to 1.5x Nail Damage
Shaman Stone + Flukenest: increases the damage of Shade Soul to 144 damage (9×16 per fluke) and makes the projectiles significantly larger
Hive Blood + Joni’s Blessing: turns masks converted to Lifeblood into Lifeblood combs
Long Naik + Mark of Pride: increases the range of your default attack
Grubberfly’s Elegy + Fury of the Fallen: at full health, Grubberfly’s Elegy grants you the ability to shoot white-hot energy that deals 0.5x Nail damage. Equipping it with Fury of the Fallen allows you to shoot red hot energy at one health, dealing 0.875x Nail damage this time.
Glowing Womb + Fury of the Fallen: Glowing Womb allows you to summon hatchlings that will attack enemies to protect you at the cost of your soul. Combining it with Fury of the Fallen lets the hatchlings flash red and deal more damage when you have one health left.
Defender’s Crest + Glowing Womb: summon dung-filled hatchlings that will release a small toxic gas cloud upon impact.
Defender’s Crest + Fluke Nest: transforms Vengeful Spirit/Shade Soul into an oversized bouncing dung-filled fluke that will explode in toxic gas.
Defender’s Crest + Spore Shroom: revamps the spore cloud emitted by Spore Shroom to a toxic gas cloud that will deal 40-42 damage (2-3 per tick).
Deep Focus + Spore Shroom: the spore cloud from Spore Shroom will cover a short distance. Deep Focus increases the spore cloud’s radius allowing more range for damage
Quick Focus + Deep Focus: increases the focus-speed and doubles the amount of your health gain.
Shape of Unn + Quick Focus: allows you to take on a slug-shape, useful in dodging enemies and projectiles. Quick Focus increases the movement speed.
Baldur Shell + Shape of the Unn + Spore Shroom: combining Shape of Unn with other focus-charms will change your body depending on the charms you equip. Baldur Shell allows you to wear a shell like a snail, while Spore Shroom will have mushrooms growing out of their back. You can combine the three of them.
Baldur Shell + Thorns of Agony: Thorns of Agony will lash out once the protective barrier of Baldur Shell cracks, even without taking damage.
Dream Wielder + Dream Shield: Dream Shield creates a spellbound shield that continuously protects you from danger. On the other hand, Dream Wielder will enhance the size of Dream Shield, which can block projectiles as well as take down enemies.
Grubberfly’s Elegy + Grubsong: when taking damage, the amount of SOUL you gain will increase to a considerable amount.
ACV: The Legacy of Saint George All 2 River Raids Clues Guide
Follow this guide and raid successfully.
Since high school, I’ve loved playing the Assassin’s Creed games because I’ve learned so much about history from them. It’s the best feeling to study while having fun, and the Assassin’s Creed games take us from the Holy Land in Altair’s story to the British Isles with our Viking brothers. Even if we have “Eagle Vision,” there are times in this game when we must solve riddles or locate hints in order to obtain legendary armor. If this sounds like you, don’t worry—we’ll be here to help you uncover those hints so you may obtain the legendary Saint George armor and weapons!
The River Severn’s Treasures
Finding two of Saint George’s fabled armor pieces is the main goal of Treasures of the River Severn. They must be located somewhere along the river.
They are reportedly in big military installations. You might be possible to finish some of the tasks for the quest The Legacy of Saint George while raiding the River Severn in pursuit of Saint George’s armor.
In River Severn, there are two pieces of armor to find. Saint George’s Braces and Saint George’s Trousers are the two pieces of armor. Since they randomly spawn at different points of location with each gameplay, their precise positions cannot be determined.
Although it is more likely that they would be in the Eastern Fortification, Island Camp, and Lowlands Camp.
Saint George’s Legacy
Finding hints concerning the whereabouts of the missing parts of Saint George’s legendary armor is the major goal of the quest The Legacy of Saint George.
According to reports, they reside in monasteries along the rivers Exe and Severn.
You can finish this quest while also completing Treasures of the River Exe and
Treasures of the River Severn (on your Quest Tab.)
It is only a matter of searching the entire area since there is only one Monastery on the River Exe.
The building that is furthest from the water is where you’d expect to find the clue. The clue is sitting on a table in the room’s corner as soon as you enter the building through the door.
The other loot that spawns inside this building will determine whether or not it is guarded.
There are two monasteries on the River Severn. The Northern Monastery, which is located in the northeastern portion of the map, has the answers.
The main chapel’s side room has the clue, and the only way to get there is through a locked outer door. Take down the guards in the chapel’s main hall by entering. An iron grate divides the chapel’s side room from the main space.
To remove the door’s bar, fire through the grate. After that, leave the chapel and go inside the adjacent chamber to get the clue.
The order in which you get these hints is irrelevant. You will be instructed to give the final clue back to Vagn at the River Raid Dock after you have found it.
You can either leave the raid at this point or carry on. Somewhere along the river you are raiding, there may be objectives for additional missions that can be finished.
River Dee’s Treasures
Discovering two of Saint George’s fabled armor pieces is the main goal of Treasures of the River Dee. They are reportedly in significant military installations near the river.
You can find Saint George’s Armor someplace in the Hillview Outpost. The Wealth boxes in each location will appear in random areas with each game, making it impossible to pinpoint their precise placement within the outpost. A sizable military outpost, the Hillview Outpost.
Saint George’s Great Helm can be found in Deebury. Its exact location within the fort cannot be specified, because the Wealth chests in each location will spawn in different locations with each playthrough. Deebury is a mid-size military location.
Saint George’s Sword
A “fearsome champion” who resides somewhere in the River Dee castle is claimed to be in possession of the Sword of Saint George. To get the sword, you must locate and vanquish this champion.
The Deva Victrix castle, at the far end of the River Dee, is where the champion can be located. The largest fortification in River Raids is this one.
It starts at the river’s bank and climbs the mountain to a tower covered in ice and in disrepair.
The fortress is closely watched. Get to the old tower at the summit by fighting your way past the barriers.
You will come upon a door that needs to be forced open after you reach the ice-covered tower. When the door is forced open, a brief cutscene of the champion brandishing The Sword of Saint George will begin.
The battle starts once the cutscene concludes. Be prepared to avoid since the champion will quickly charge and lunge with the sword.
His attack in battle is this. The area is constrained, making it impossible to back up for long-range shots.
Your crew will enter the conflict. This will provide you chances to assault the champion while he is preoccupied.
Confirm the kill once the champion has been eliminated to get Saint George’s Holy Sword.
The mission The Sword of Saint George and the River’s quest arc will now be complete.
