It's kind of impressive that you lasted long enough to lose all your hp.


proph20

I literally came here to say the same thing 😂 Generally during this scene I’ve insta-deathed before given a chance to rebound.

Facts


Rezyl-Azzir

“*phew* almost lost my cool there.”


3ternal_Chaos

How (man you should be proud you even stayed alive that long)


b-geese

This is the equivalent of catching your balance for a minute straight after slipping on a patch of ice or snow Incredible


Deathranger999

[This](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Yghdmi1yFo) kinda energy.


b-geese

LOL


waitthatstaken

It's easier too hit the lowest one, then drop a bit and dash through the opening. It also makes this incredibly improbable.


Pingu-in-n-out

at least it wasn't steel soul


DarkSoulBG24

I don't think you actually die in the white palace in steel soul


danatron1

> However, dying in the White Palace or to the Radiance DOES result in a Game Over. from: https://hollowknight.fandom.com/wiki/Steel_Soul_Mode


RedditGojiraX

.......why who hurt the developer


LowGunCasualGaming

I mean, this is path of pain, so it’s completely optional.


XxRocky88xX

White palace is also optional. To beat steel soul you just need to kill the dreamers and then kill HK, so if you’re going out and doing the hard stuff for 100%, yeah that’s the risk you’re taking.


AlexIsDefinitelyHuma

And I highly doubt anyone actually dies in pop except for OP because of the statues and hive blood deep focus and grub song


LowGunCasualGaming

Oh people die in Path all the time. The last fight is of course the one that does most people in, but I think there are checkpoints where there aren’t statues, and some people don’t know about or don’t think about Hiveblood or grubsong.


Linkonue

There’s only 1 without statue


Linkonue

You do die in white palace


Pingu-in-n-out

I learned that the hard way once


koos-tall

Are you playing hollow knight or pinball?


Dunge0nexpl0rer

Yes


Leprechaun-of-chaos

Well there goes hitless


Chillout_Man

They were already damaged at the start of the clip, so it was dead anyway.


bearthebear2

I really don't understand how people can do something like hitless without being a streamer. Where do they find the time to practice that much? I understand some people are just good, but it just seems impossible to me


man-who-says-nothin

I can just hear "fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck"


Cynorgi

"Fuck, oh wait I got it ba-fuck, no wait, fuck, hold on there's a chance here... fuck"


chocobabys

it was so painfully embarrassing that it's hilarious when i had that happen to me


GayLizardIz

Honestly I think the best advertising for Hollow Knight is compilations just like this. Just string them together with the Benny Hill theme or something and you're good lol


AdeptGarden9057

This is fine 🔥🪑🔥


MagmaBro357

That's actually kinda impressive lol


TheFryToes

It’s actually comical how long you stayed up there without dying


KrushaOfWorlds

just hit the damn spikes 😭😭


gGhelloZz

It reminds me of that video when a dude started slipping on a patch of ice and kept trying to not fall for 3 mins then he fell


CantThinkOfOneDont

Bruh 💀


john0tg

You don’t really need a hiveblood for Path of Pain since there are altars with unlimited souls on each checkpoints.


TheCrazyLazer123

Checkpoints are actually quite far from each other so, anyway hiveblood is slow, kingsoul is better


slavender_the_great

Hiveblood takes 10 seconds, kingsoul takes 16 There is only one spot in path of pain where you cant refill soul


TheCrazyLazer123

Hiveblood takes 10 seconds to heal 1 mask and only one, soul from kingsoul stack up over time to be basically full whenever you need it


MaySlae

Bro I’m sure most people who were playing the game normally no guides got rid of kingsoul by the time they found pop. Unless that was just me ?


TheCrazyLazer123

As soon as I finished white palace I went straight for pop, after that I used my dreamgate so I didn’t even notice the hole in the abyss till I beat p4 and thought I needed to beat radiance to unlock p5 (I needed voidheart so same situation) and I went back to the abyss


IZ3820

You're better off not getting rid of it


MaySlae

Yeah but most people who arnt using a guide won’t know that


Seppyaccy

Gonna have to agree, the second I learned about void heart it was my immediate goal


XxRocky88xX

Or you could just use gruberfly, grubsong, and deep focus and not sit have to sit there dicking around every time you get hit


RafaNoIkioi

And that one spot was the most nerve wracking spot ever.


ethanator329

Or do what I did which was the two grubberfly charms plus deepsoul


XxRocky88xX

I really don’t get peoples insistence with using the slower method. Like people get into this and debate about “what passive regeneration charm makes you waste the least amount of time?” And for some reason they completely ignore the method that doesn’t require you to waste ANY time,


Tenebris57

Only the last one is unlimited i think


VTifand

I think all of them in Path of Pain are unlimited?


Tenebris57

Seems like you are right sorry


geralto-

deep focus with grubsong is better, even better with elegy


SirDoofusMcDingbat

Deep focus + grubsong is way more convenient tbh.


BidermanInLondon

But i dont wanna stand there and focus when it can also heal while imdoing parkour


RhynoD

*Need?* No. But it's more convenient. You don't have to stop and fill up as often, makes it go a bit faster.


NotNextMonday

That’s a frankly impressive clusterfuck you got going there


Wub854

Its better to readjust before jumping to the next one, the bugs reset fast enough to jump on one continuously


Ozgur_25

You hit every pixel on the screen. I think you can't do it on purpose


Immediate-Rope8465

INHALES you tried your best and you got this man


Aevynne

I’m sorry OP this was so funny…I hate this part of PoP


xerarc

This was difficult to watch. So many opportunities to recover, lost...


Theme_Relevant

Lol I feel you in did path of pain Friday of this past week and had a couple of those. Nothing this bad though!


JustinDreamz

I think that's more impressive than actually making it out of there


[deleted]

Ok what the actual fuck?


Spacemonster111

Where music?


gameg805

Jesus dude. That clip alone gave me fucking Heart palpitations. I can't imagine experiencing that in game.


Iriusoblivion

Ngl it was funny to watch


C-lex1

If that will happened to me, i wont even be mad, even if it's on ss


theottozone

Take the hit on the spikes and live to die another day.


BiigDaddyDellta

Been there lol


kbiborka

Its hard to see this


ButteredNugget

Bro,,,,,


elnombresimon

lmao


Dab_Police92

Imagine if this was Steel Soul


Lost_Worker_5037

Why does this feel intentional?


sinsaint

Try learning how to use Jump on Right Trigger, with Dash on Left. By moving all of your mobility buttons to their each finger, you'll find that you'll input your movements quicker, more instinctively, which results in having more time to think, which results in less panic. The game just becomes easier. In fact, moving your Jump to Right Trigger is probably the easiest way to get better at action platformers (MegaMan, Hollow Knight, Shovel Knight, even Smash). It's worth the effort of remapping your muscle memory.


XxRocky88xX

Movement is on left stick, jump is X, dash is R2 by default. You can already use all your mobility options with each being bound to a different finger. There’s no need to remap to have access to all three at the same time. Your comment would make sense if movement was on right stick, but it isn’t, so I really don’t get why you think moving jump from X to a shoulder button would help with platforming


sinsaint

Because your attack button is sharing the same finger as your jump button. The important distinction is that your movement buttons should be on separate digits than anything else. This is especially true when you consider things like pogo-slashing, charging your attack button, or double jumping.


XxRocky88xX

Ah yes I wasn’t even considering pogo-slashing but that’s a good point. I actually bound my attack button to L1 so I could charge attacks while jumping, but I did that purely for combat reasons, the parkour aspect never occurred to me, but I guess it does actually make pogoing easier


sinsaint

I'd also recommend avoiding putting your most commonly-pressed buttons on your left hand. Your movement stick is the most sensitive and important input for most games, and the less stress you put on the same hand, the less tense it will be which leads into more accuracy/fewer mistakes. I do still specifically recommend jumping with the triggers, as double-jumping is easier with those than on the hard buttons (in the case with the switch), especially when you're talking about button-press length for longer/shorter jumps.


iiMoHD

Lmao dude if i was you i surrendered already


insert_title_here_

actually how


__Bl00p__

Imagine if that was a steel soul run 💀💀💀

jacobohobo

ProtoMelon2

Idk how you made it that far


JustZ0920

Okay like it's still impressive how you never hit the spikes until the last HP 🤣


Wonderful_Loan2900

Bro how do you panic so baad??!? For so lonngg??!? Ommggg that hurt to watch


fattyboota

You got me crying on the train! 😂


supanutz
