Dreamshield is a Charm in Hollow Knight. It conjures a shield around the Knight that can block projectiles and deals 1x Nail damage when it hits an enemy.

Usefulness

Whenever the shield touches an enemy, the shield breaks and takes time to reform. Attacking with the Nail causes the shield to bash outward. Focusing causes the Shield to rotate even faster in a smaller radius and accelerates the shield recovery.

How to Acquire

Found in a room in the Resting Grounds, below the Seer's room.

Projectiles

Dreamshield only blocks some projectiles. Blocked projectiles vanish when hitting the shield. Piercing projectiles are unaffected by the shield.

Blocked


Piercing

An exception to both these categories are the "Homing light orbs" (The Radiance, Godmaster Icon.png Absolute Radiance), as they are able to be blocked a short duration after spawning but after ~3 seconds they become piercing instead

Trivia

Location Dreamshield.png

  • The pedestal where the Charm is found can be hit with the Dream Nail. The dialogue reads:
"Protect yourself... You are our last..."
This, combined with the Charm description, implies that the moth tribe intended to give this charm to the Seer as they were dying out.
  • Markoth, who is a moth, wields a similar weapon to the Dreamshield.
  • The Dreamshield temporarily disappears when interacting with NPC dialogue.
  • A tink sound is played whenever the Dreamshield passes over a piece of Geo.
  • A note plays when the shield bashes outward with the player's nail attack.
  • When using the Godmaster Icon.png Nail Binding in any Pantheon, Dreamshield's damage is not affected. This damage is also not affected by the Fragile Strength/Grimm Troupe Icon.png Unbreakable Strength and Fury of the Fallen Charms.
