Quick Focus

From Hollow Knight Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Quick Focus is a Charm in Hollow Knight. It makes focusing SOUL ~33% faster.[Note 1]


Allows the Knight to cast FOCUS ~33% faster, not including the startup time (0.25 seconds). Startup time is not affected by Quick Focus. Though the Charm is costly, it makes healing in the middle of combat much more forgiving. Extremely useful in situations with lots of combat such as boss fights and arenas (notably the Colosseum of Fools).

Allows healing where it is possible to get interrupted while Focusing or healing twice in situations where normally it is only possible to heal once.

The crystal set in the centre is lovely, isn't it? Exquisite, even! I've heard that crystals help you to "focus", so if that's something you're interested in you should take this beauty home!

Charm Synergies

When Focusing, doubles the movement speed of the Shape of Unn form (6.0 -> 12.0).

Charm Combo Tips

Stalwart Shell
Useful as it provides just enough time to Focus and heal during the invincibility.

Deep Focus
Despite costing a prohibitive 7 notches combined, Quick Focus partially cancels the Focus-speed penalty of Deep Focus, allowing the Knight to heal two Masks at almost the regular speed.[Note 1] Especially useful against swarms of enemies or enemies who deal two Masks of damage per hit.

Soul Catcher
Combining with Soul Catcher allows for more frequent, safer healing.

Soul Eater
Combining with Soul Eater allows for more frequent, safer healing.
