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. It is useful for collecting Geo that falls into spikes, thorns, and hard to reach places. If the area is exited before all Geo has been collected, it is lost (Geo carried by the swarm that has not yet reached the Knight is not lost).

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

How to Acquire

Do you find yourself leaving a lot of Geo behind as you hurry through the caverns?
This charm will make sure that any loose change finds its way back to you.
