Dream Wielder

From Hollow Knight Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Dream Wielder is a Charm in Hollow Knight. It reduces the time needed to attack with the Dream Nail,[Note 1] increases the amount of SOUL gained when hitting an enemy with the Dream Nail, and, after the Hidden Dreams content Hidden Dreams update, increases the likelihood of gaining Essence from killing an enemy.[Note 2]


Dream Wielder is by far the most efficient SOUL-gathering Charm due to its low cost and high effectiveness. The only downside is that the Knight must be standing still to use it, and it deals no damage, only knockback. Due to the Dream Nail causing no damage, this Charm is useful in the Colosseum of Fools in order to acquire full SOUL.

How to Acquire

Given by Seer after gathering 500 Essence.
