We dropped into the Royal waterways We went to the left and then we wind down towards the bench We did need the desolate dive to open up this area to get to the bench now we’re gonna press on and the next thing we’re gonna have to do is defeat the dung defender in Order to open up the path that is gonna allow us to get to Isma’s Tear so essentially everything that you need to get this done is one you need the desolate dive to You’re gonna need to defeat the dung defender and three you’re gonna need the crystal heart ability to get Isma’s Tear as well If you’re missing any of these abilities be sure to check out some of my other videos I have covered tutorials on how to get each and every one of these abilities already So once you beat the dung defender, you can go ahead and pick up the defenders crest.

  5. You are the BEST mate. Keep up the good work!

    BTW make more Hollow Knight Videos, maybe a full gameplay walktrough or something.

  6. Oh heck hello again favourite gamer with the best game face ever

    Legit didnt notice until i saw your channel name wheeze

  7. At first I didn't wanted to use any video's to help to get me through the game, but this really helps!! At least I know now where I can go and can't go, thanks for this video, I give a big thumbs up and a subscribe 'w') b

  8. Sooooo… first i got the crystall hearth so i can get the tear so i can get the shape of unn so i can use it against grimm… that is alot of work for a charm xD

  9. Or you can use the way easier with going from kingdoms edge to isma's Grove is the easiest and fastest but you have to make far in the game before you can get to the kingdom edge of course

  10. God, that dash at 3:10 was what I couldn't find. Usually exits you havent visited show up on the map, but there's absolutely no indication of that exit on the map prior to entering it. One of the rare bad game design moments I've come across so far.

  11. Me: this is gonna be e-

    You have to defeat dung defender

    Me: what was I saying again?

    Me: oh yeah, It's gonna be impossible.

  12. Thanks for the tips I totally didn't know where that water switch lead to. I have the wings, the hook, the shadow dash, the soul scream/fireball, kings brand, super sayian dash and my nail upgraded with all three arts, a butt load of charm pins/slots (need 14 more for the whole set) and I still die in the acid water. I'm like there's gotta be a way to swim in it because I've seen paths to areas I've been to that requires swimming in the acid. I was lost but this was a big help. Thanks again man. Next I gotta find the banker bitch who stole my Geo. She is next on my hit list after the acid swim ability.

  13. me: *becomes a great sub to your channel hopefully*
    also me: *wants you to get more subscribers so try I make a million fake accounts and sub but realize I have no idea how to make another account*
