Longnail is a Charm in Hollow Knight. It increases the range of the Nail by 15%.


Nail Range Comparison

It is useful for keeping distance from more dangerous enemies and for performing safer Nail-bounces.

While it has a slightly shorter range than the Mark of Pride Charm, it is acquired with less challenge and has a lower Notch cost. In most normal combat, the range difference is negligible.

It does not affect the range of Nail Arts or Grubberfly's Elegy.

How to Acquire

Bought from Salubra in the Forgotten Crossroads for  300.
