This is kinda cursed but um if moths lay eggs in light sources and since the radiance is the fucking sun and a female moth then that means she lays eggs inside of herself
So, I've beaten false knight, gruz mother and hornet so far. Got the mothwing cloak and the mantis claw and now I'm going around exploring. One thing I realized is that I totally suck at nail bouncing. How precise has your timing to be for it to work? It just can't seem to pull it of.
I'm playing on ps4 and mainly use the dpad for movement, dont know if that's important.
So we cant dreamnail PV even though he has a mind to think
I've been meaning to do this for a while now.
Sit back and take the time to read this please, I do believe it's very important.
Also quick disclaimer that I am not a mod on this fandom and it is technically not my job to do this sorta stuff, but as I said before, I do believe this to be a very important message that a few people, including mods, have mentioned.
I have noticed that this wiki has been absolutely flooded with posts, mainly in general (though I have not been here for so long that I could say if this is a persisting issue or if it is just lately). There are also a lot of posts from the same people, I won't say who specifically as I'm not calling anybody out.
If you read the guidelines (you can click the button on the bottom-left corner of the screen), you can read some important rules. Guidelines can differ throughout different fandoms, but a lot of the rules you see here apply to most other fandoms too. There are some general ones which you have probably figured out even before you read them, like no hate speechm trolling and impersonations of other people, but there are some specific ones that I feel like I should repeat now (citing directly from the guidelines):
Not knowing the rules will not make you exempt from punishment.
Off-topic conversations will be deleted.
Fan art (including modified screenshots), OCs, roleplay and fan fictions are not allowed anywhere on the wiki. Use the Fanon wiki instead: hollow-knight-fanon.fandom.com/wiki/Hollow_Knight_Fanon_Wiki
Jokes, memes and otherwise unhelpful discussions are not welcome on the wiki. You are free to post them on the Hollow Knight Theory wiki : hollow-knight-theory.fandom.com/wiki/Hollow_Knight_theory_Wiki
Also, while not being numbered or being directly a rule, there is a section in the guidelines saying: "The general idea is that posts should involve more effort than just someone sharing their current progress, we're not a subreddit for "I did it" posts - so "updates" that are just for "bragging" along the lines of (hey guys i just beat X today) are something we'd like to discourage and instead encourage people to post in a manner that generates a conversation."
Again, I'm not calling anybody out or saying that what they're doing is actually wrong, the rules are pretty open for each and everybody's interpretations, but in the last few weeks I have seen a few update posts and a lot of stuff that I don't consider being a helpful discussion (seriously, I don't need to see a Tier list of every boss/music every week. I also see a crap-ton of posts asking for obvious things that you can figure out if you just type the thing in the search bar of the wiki, that's what it's here for afterall, though I doubt most people who need to see this will see this)
Now, you may think that the rules/me myself are pretty strict in terms of what you are supposed to post, but here's the thing: the Hollow Knight wiki fandom's purpouse isn't the general channel or anything, it's the wiki itself, this post system is just a bonus. If you like to post updates of your adventures or share interesting stuff, then I recommend using the Hollow Knight subreddit on reddit (link here if you need it: https://www.reddit.com/r/HollowKnight/) or if you like chatting with other people about Hollow Knight real-time, then I recommend using the Hollow Knight discord server (link here too: https://discord.com/invite/hollowknight)
Both of these sites are really fun and, quite ironically, have much more active members, so your posts will get more appreciation/your questions will be answered faster.
Well, this turned out to be a bit of a rant, I hope you took the time to read it, or atleast some of it. I will repeat this once again because it's very important: I'm not trying to call someone out and I am not saying you can't make mistakes, I know I did, but it's very important that you don't do the same mistakes in future.
And again, I really recommend joining HK's discord or reddit page, good stuff, you really don't wanna miss out on such things
This tier list is based on fun of each fight.
Gorb - This beautifully benevolent brainiac bastard may have only one attack, but somehow the fight is constantly interesting. Radiant adds the challenge many players wanted from him, and only makes him more fun, I love Gorb.
Mantis Lords - These three are an example of a team fight done right. I love them. They are fast, but not unfair. Radiant adds challenge after you get decently good at the game, while still keeping it fun.
Hive Knight - The noises did it for me. "ZZZZZZZZAW!!" is an amazing quote, and his quick movement while also staying fair is a lot of fun.
The Hollow Knight - I love this fight. There's so much lore hidden within it, and the moves are so slow, yet quick. He's such a sad fight. It really puts the game back into what it is truly about. I love the fight for everything in it.
Zote - While many don't agree, I love this fight. It's so much fun to fling Zote around the arena like a glorified ping-pong ball.
Hornet Protector - I love this fight so much. Sure, it took me around 13 tries, but he's s much fun, looking back. The fluid movements, the way she calls out every attack... mwa, chef's kiss. Radiant also make it challenge at end game, while reviving the fun of your first fights against her.
Nailmaster Sheo - I love this fight as much as I love the man himself. The each attack is so quick, but has a slow build-up. The way you can tell what he'll do. God, he's so well made. I love this fight so much.
Nailmasters Oro & Mato - They just don't quite live up to their brother. Oro is super easy, then Mato shows up and the fight gets hard. My only issue is that it's almost impossible to tell which brother is which, so you never know what Nail Art will be unleashed upon your sorry bug booty.
Soul Master - I personally had natural distaste at the beginning. He was so tough, but now looking back, he's actually a nice refresher. I'll never forget that bait and switch. That was an amazing play, and that sudden second phase was so smart and well implemented.
Soul Tyrant - basically Soul Master but harder. I don't really mind him.
Soul Warrior - I love his take on Desolate Dive, and the way he implements soul and nail together makes him a nice refresher to the fights.
Grimm - I may have died over and over and over again to him, but NKG is just unenjoyable amounts of suffering. I can handle this, because he's actually a really fair boss.
The Collector - I found the fight as a nice little added spice to boss fights. He was a super interesting take. The way he hides, and laughs at you while throwing jars that contain foes. I love his freshness.
Hornet Sentinel - I don't now why, but she's infinitely harder in this phase. Radiant attempts aren't as enjoyable as when I was doing Radiant Protector.
Dung Defender - I love him. The hype he has, the music, the insane speed when he gets mad. It's so much fun to fight this guy, but he just doesn't match up quite right to the others.
False Knight - He's easy to the point of annoying to fight. But Radiant tosses it up so much, I can love the fight again.
Flukemarm - ALLURING- anyways... yeah, she's repetitive, but in a fun way. You get to Abyss Shriek like crazy, and the little flying babies mix up the fight some, so that she's not just a massive punching bag.
Enraged Guardian - I love this fight. Crystal Guardian but harder? BUT NOT TOO HARD. He's a good mix of fun and challenge, and I don't mind it. Super repetitive fight, though...
The Radiance - The only fun thing was the 3 Page Ora Beatdown at the end. You get this massive rush of euphoria at the end, due to overcoming unfairness in boss form. BUT THE THING IS, SHE'S ACTUALLY FAIR, WHICH MAKES EVERY DEATH ALL THE MORE HUMILIATING.
Lost Kin - Challenge added to Broken Vessel? Sign me up. I love how fair, yet tough he is. He's doable, but decently strong and tough to do.
Xero - Really repetitive, and my fights against him go either super bad or super good. I don't really care for him.
White Defender - Dung Defender but not as dirty. Not to mention, kinda boring fight. I haven't won, but only one try was all I needed to know he'll be a bit too boring of a buff for my liking.
Broken Vessel - As much as I love the idea, and the build-up to the fight... that's about all I love. The fight is far too easy, even on Radiant. You shouldn't be able to beat a Radiant boss first try, but I did. He's just kinda there to remind you that there are other vessels.
Galien - Unfun. Like, he's either super tough, or super easy. It depends on my mood, and he never even mixes up his one attack. The tiny scythes aren't a threat at all, and the big one seems to like to hit you whenever it wants.
Crystal Guardian - Far too easy and repetitive imo. Just another unfun fight.
Traitor Lord - Ok, ok, hear me out. He's tough. I like that. He is fun. BUT HE'S SO SLOW, I GET HIT FROM REACTING TOO FAST. Also, he killed Cloth. Screw him. His Radiant isn't even hard, lmao.
Nosk (outside of Pantheon) - snooze-fest of repetition. Cheesing him makes him boring as all hell.
Nightmare King Grimm - This is where constantly dying makes it so repetitive it's unfun. The moves are just remixed enough to hit you when you expect Grimm moves. Not to mention, two damage and a fire trail? This is Radiance but with contact damage. I hate it.
Gruz Mother - She's only good at Ascended and Radiant. You shouldn't need the higher difficulty to carry the fight. Not to mention, she's a bit rude with her attack pattern. Two attacks, but that charge always hits me.
Massive Moss Charger - Repetitive Snooze-Fest. Also... Massive Moss Charger. Need I say more?
Brooding Mawlek - Two levels of difficulty: too hard and too easy. Just super repetitive. I don't like it.
God Tamer - This one gets the same treatment as NKG. Constant death isn't fun.
Failed Champion - Shockwave spam. It hits me for that double damage and never fails to get me annoyed.
Elder Hu - Repetitive pancake tosser. Lame and far too easy with Shade's Cloak.
Marmu - WAIT, I DIDN'T WANT PADDLE BALL TO THIS EXTREME! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA-
No Eyes - The fight drags on, being so lame of an endurance fight. SHE HAS ZERO ATTACKS.
Uumuu - Repetitive Snooze-Fest #2. Fight drags on for too long, and you don't even get Quirrel in the Pantheons. Instead, you need to get lucky and have Uumuu do a battle cry.
Vengefly King - Repetitive Snooze-Fest #3. Vengefly King. Need I say more?
Watcher Knights - Ok, these bastards are just dumb and annoying. Hard boss that isn't fun to repeat.
Obblobbles - Mates that get a boost when one dies. The unfun part is that they attack at the same time, and always hit me. I barely clear these guys outside of the Pantheon, but have no trouble when in the Pantheon.
Grey Prince Zote - NKG but not as cool because he doesn't give you anything but a bad time.I wish I left Zote to die because of this guy.
Any ideas or suggestions on how it comes to be? The Crossroads are composed of stone or by fossilised bugs, the same for Geo. But the Pale Ore is supposedly different. Looking at it, it looks like Geo coated by this oddly white composition. I have the theory it could be fossilised Wyrm carcass, from the Kingdom's Edge, but I have absolutely nothing to back it down besides that Pale Ore is canonly somewhat attached to the Pale Beings, and this is the only manner I see how they could be related. Ideas?
I did the flower quest. (a pain)by going through the path, then dreamgating to Le'mer. then doing the path again, without the enemies,
So I'm now at 106%. I've beaten the Pantheons of both Master and Artist. Now Sage... WHY IS GOD TAMER SO ANNOYING??? She is one of few multiple vs you fights I know of,that are annoyingly hard. The god thing itself always hits me. It either hits me, or I never deal damage to it. I dodge God thing, and Tamer walks up and smacks me so hard I'm launched into the infection spit bullcrap. I won by pure luck when I fought her outside of the pantheons. I had one HP left. This boss is legit one of few tougher than the Radiance.

So i see alot of "How do i do this?" or "where is this thing" on this page. Do users not know we're are on a page containing every bit of information you need on the game. Is it just out of laziness that questions are asked here instead of just using the wiki?
What happens when you free the last grub and close the app the open it again?
