Soul Eater is a Charm in Hollow Knight. It greatly increases the amount of SOUL gained when hitting enemies with the nail.

Usefulness

This charm is very useful for accumulating a large amount of excess SOUL and should be considered for combat situations where it's dangerous or impossible to use the Dream Nail. It generates more SOUL per notch than Soul Catcher(the SOUL gain from Soul Eater is about triple that of Soul Catcher, at twice the notch cost), but is less flexible to slot without Overcharming.

It is often useful on Radiant difficulty battles in the Hall of Gods as it is the only 4-notch charm (for Overcharming purposes) that has any use on Radiant difficulty.

How to Acquire

Found in the Resting Grounds. Requires Desolate Dive/Descending Dark.

Use Desolate Dive/Descending Dark on the grave just under the Stag Station then head east in the passageway. The charm is found next to the sarcophagus of a Snail Shaman.

Spell Twister
Spell Twister

Allows the Knight to cast spells more often by collecting SOUL faster and casting spells at a reduced cost. Especially useful when also combined with Soul Catcher as it allows 1 hit on an enemy to acquire nearly enough SOUL to cast a spell.

Shaman Stone

Shaman Stone's spell damage bonus is another effective way to increase the efficiency of extra SOUL gained.

Soul Catcher
Soul Catcher

Soul Eater and Soul Catcher stack additively with each other, allowing for 22 SOUL per Nail hit for the main Vessel, which is almost enough to cast a Spell after one hit with Spell Twister.

More frequent hits with the nail accrue significantly more SOUL from this charm.
