Dreamgate is an Ability in Hollow Knight. It allows placing a warp point and then travelling to it.


Allows the Knight to place a Dreamgate at a location, then warp to it from anywhere. Only one Dreamgate can be placed at any time, and placing a new gate will remove the previous one. Warping consumes 1 Essence. A Dreamgate can be warped to indefinitely, as long as the Knight has enough Essence.

Setting a Dreamgate takes 1.4 seconds (0.4 sec between Dream Nail start and Dream Set start, and 1 sec between Dream Set start and Dream Set finish), and Warping to a Dreamgate takes 2.25 seconds (0.25 sec between Dream Nail start and Dream Warp start, 2 sec between Dream Warp start and Dream Warp finish). Dream Wielder does not affect this charge speed.

Once set, an icon will appear on the map, showing the location of the Dreamgate.

How to Acquire

The Dreamgate is acquired in the Resting Grounds by talking to the Seer after having acquired 900 Essence.

  • If a save file exists from before the Hidden Dreams update after the Seer has already left, Dreamgate will automatically be acquired upon loading the save.


  • When warping out from a dream, the Knight will wake up at the point they entered the dream, instead of the Dreamgate.
  • Using the Dreamgate will destroy the Delicate Flower.
  • The Dreamgate cannot be used to place a gate while inside the Temple of the Black Egg, Pleasure House, Colosseum of Fools, the White Palace, a Tram, a functional lift shaft, the building which the White Lady resides in, or in the Cast-Off Shell. The Dream Nail also cannot be used to warp to an existing gate while inside the White Palace, a Tram, a functional lift shaft, or the Cast-Off Shell.
