How to Acquire

A Geo chest

Geo can be gained in several different ways:

While the Gathering Swarm Charm is equipped, a small swarm gathers any dropped Geo for the Knight, except those fallen in acid. Fragile Greed (as well as its Grimm Troupe content unbreakable variant) increases the amount of Geo enemies drop.

Keeping Relics to sell to Relic Seeker Lemm when Geo is needed is particularly useful because, unlike Geo, these items are not lost upon death.

A great early source of Geo is the Husk Guards in the Forgotten Crossroads. Many enemies in the City of Tears, especially Great Husk Sentries, as well as Hoppers and Great Hoppers in Kingdom's Edge, are also great sources of Geo.

The fastest ways to farm Geo later in the game are to continuously complete the Trial of the Conqueror or to farm Dirtcarvers and Carver Hatchers in the Failed Tramway with Fragile Greed/Grimm Troupe content Unbreakable Greed equipped.

One-time Major Sources

  • The Gorgeous Husk in the City of Tears drops  420 upon death ( 504 with Fragile Greed equipped)
  • In Kingdom's Edge, there is a hidden passage accessible by breaking a wall in a room with a Great Hopper and a lot of spike pits. At the very bottom of it is the largest Geo deposit in the game, rewarding  420. This value is not increased by Fragile Greed.
  • Millibelle the Thief returns roughly 1.5x what is deposited in her shell, when in the Pleasure House. See Millibelle for more details on this process.
