Gathering Swarm is a Charm in Hollow Knight. It spawns a swarm that collects dropped Geo.

Usefulness

This charm is primarily used to grind Geo more easily. Useful to collect Geo that falls into spikes, water, and thorns. If the area is exited before all Geo has been collected, it will be lost (Geo carried by the swarm that has not yet reached the Knight will not be lost).

Gathering Swarm will not collect Geo that has fallen into acid or into an opening that leads to another area.

How to Acquire

Bought from Sly in Dirtmouth for Geo300.

Trivia

  • The Gathering Swarm does not collect the Geo dropped by Grubfather or the Geo dropped as a reward for completing a trial in the Colosseum of Fools.
