City Crest

From Hollow Knight Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The City Crest is an Item in Hollow Knight.


Opens the gate between the Fungal Wastes and the City of Tears. The Mantis Claw is required to gain access to this area of the Fungal Wastes.

The Crest needs to be inserted into a slot on a statue of the Great Knight Hegemol. Placing it there consumes the City Crest.

After walking through the opened gate, it closes and cannot be opened again. It is possible to open the ceiling above the gate by coming from the City of Tears and using the Desolate Dive/Descending Dark Spell on a breakable floor.

While the intended entrance to the City of Tears is to use the City Crest, there are additional ways to enter the City of Tears, such as dropping down from the Resting Grounds or coming from the Royal Waterways.
