Feels good to get WR back, played much better, but can still be improved. Stupid death to Lost Kin, and can still go for Fury strats to save more time. *The "Ohh!" sounds are my gold splits. Frequently Asked Questions: Q: Do you play on a controller or a keyboard? A: Keyboard (Not mechanical) Q: Why do you open your inventory while falling? A: Increases falling speed + Removes hardfalls Q: Why is the game in Chinese? A: Faster text scroll + Less letters in general, saves a good amount of time Q: Why is 'blank' not included / included? A: Cause the game has weird % calculation, and anything extra that I do is just because it's more fun Q: How do you do that skip / trick? A: You can check the 106% speedrunning guide below to see all the skips that are used in the run + feel free to ask any questions you have in Hollow Knight's discord Twitch: https://www.twitch.tv/monstahler Hollow Knight on Speedrun.com : https://www.speedrun.com/hollowknight Hollow Knight's Discord Server: https://discord.me/hollowknight 106% Speedrunning Guide : https://www.speedrun.com/hollowknight/guide/7y92q

Hollow Knight - Charm Interactions and Combos

“I don't know whether you've noticed, but some Charms seem to like each other. Yes! Mmm! When Charms like each other, they shine even brighter and sing even more sweetly!” - Salubra the Charm Lover Unlike the average Hollow Knight gamer, I never had a “main charm build.” Throughout the game, I kept experimenting with all the charms and I mean ALL of em (except for the Compass because I have very good mapping skills.) From Steady Body and Heavy Blow to Glowing Womb and Soul Eater; I used the charms to their full potential and it made my experience with the game so much more strategic and interesting. When I discovered my first charm interaction, it was one of the most fascinating things I’ve seen in a while. So I made this video dedicated to that aspect of the game I absolutely adored (Grimm Troupe DLC charms included.) This is my first semi-serious video I made so criticism is much appreciated. Found a lot of these facts in the Hollow Knight Wiki so whoever is running it is doing a really good job. Check it out! http://hollowknight.wikia.com/wiki/Hollow_Knight_Wiki Give Team Cherry’s Hollow Knight the love it deserves! STRONGLY RECOMMEND. The only game like Dark Souls that is not because of its difficulty. http://store.steampowered.com/app/367520/Hollow_Knight/ Music is from the Hollow Knight album made by the amazing Christopher Larkin.

Hollow Knight released early 2017 to critical acclaim. In August, we got Hidden Dreams, and then in October, The Grimm Troupe. I've reviewed the base game, and I figured it would be a great time to review and critique these two small DLC expansions.
