Hollow Knight Wiki

Quick Focus is a Charm in Hollow Knight. It makes focusing SOUL ~33% faster.[Note 1]


Allows the Knight to cast FOCUS ~33% faster, not including the startup time (0.25 seconds). Startup time is not affected by Quick Focus. Though the Charm is costly, it makes healing in the middle of combat much more forgiving. Extremely useful in situations with lots of combat such as boss fights and arenas (notably the Colosseum of Fools).

Allows healing where it is possible to get interrupted while Focusing or healing twice in situations where normally it is only possible to heal once.

How to Acquire

Bought from Salubra in the Forgotten Crossroads for Geo.png 800.

  • Shop description:
The crystal set in the centre is lovely, isn't it? Exquisite, even! I've heard that crystals help you to "focus", so if that's something you're interested in you should take this beauty home!

Stalwart Shell
Useful as it provides just enough time to Focus and heal during the invincibility.
Deep Focus.png

Deep Focus
Despite costing a prohibitive 7 notches combined, Quick Focus partially cancels the Focus-speed penalty of Deep Focus, allowing the Knight to heal two Masks at almost the regular speed.[Note 1] Especially useful against swarms of enemies or enemies who deal two Masks of damage per hit.
