Team Cherry’s Metroidvania action-adventure game, Hollow Knight, follows the journey of a nameless warrior called the Knight as he travels through Hallownest, which is now a kingdom in ruins because of a supernatural disease. As the Knight journeys through Hallownest, he can obtain new items, abilities, spells, and charms that will help him traverse through different areas of Hallownest and defeat enemies.

Hollow Knight: How to Obtain the Shopkeeper’s Key

One of the items in the game is the Shopkeeper’s Key. This item is a key that should be given to Sly in Dirtmouth to unlock new items that the Knight can purchase. This guide will teach you how to obtain the Shopkeeper’s Key!

Shopkeeper’s Key

Before the Knight can obtain the Shopkeeper’s Key, the Knight must first obtain the Mantis Claw ability, which allows the Knight to cling to walls and jump off them.

The Shopkeeper’s Key can be found in the middle of Crystal Peak. To obtain the Shopkeeper’s Key, this is what the Knight must do:

  1. From the bench at the bottom of Crystal Peak, head to the left and take the exit on the left.
  2. In the next room, the Knight will encounter a Husk Miner. Head slightly to the left, head up the shaft using the Mantis Claw ability before the gap with the conveyor belts, head to the left again, and take the exit above.
  3. Next, take the path on either the left where the Knight will go up a level and encounter a Glimback, then head up the path above in the middle where the Knight will encounter two Husk Miners and another Glimback that can be reached by using the Mantis Claw ability to cling to the wall on the left to ride the conveyor belt upwards then jump towards the next level, or take the path on the right where the Knight can use the Mantis Claw ability to cling to the wall on the right then jump towards the next level where the Knight will encounter a Husk Miner. Either way, take the path above on the right that leads upwards. It is worth noting that the path on the right requires the Knight to have the Monarch Wings ability or the double jump ability to reach and continue on the path.
  4. After that, head to the left and, using the Mantis Claw ability, cling to the conveyor belt on the wall on the left to ride up, then jump towards the next platform and take the exit above.
  5. The Knight will encounter a bunch of Crystal Crawlers in this next room. Head to the left and take the path above. Head to the right, then head up by jumping up the platforms while evading the lasers or defeating the Crystal Crawlers.
  6. Next, the Knight will encounter a bunch more Crystal Crawlers. Head up the shaft, head to the right, then head up again while evading the lasers or defeating the Crystal Crawlers. Then, take the path above in the middle.
  7. After that, the Knight can either take the path above on the left, where the Knight will encounter two more Crystal Crawlers, or the shaft above on the right, where the Knight will encounter a Husk Miner and a Shardmite.
  8. Next, head up the shaft with another Shardmite, and, at the top, the Knight will find a platform with something glowing. Inspect the glow, and the Knight will obtain the Shopkeeper’s Key!

Now that the Knight has the Shopkeeper’s Key, the Knight can head back to Dirtmouth (there is a shortcut back to Dirtmouth down below on the previous room than on the left, but this shortcut requires the Knight to have the Crystal Heart ability or super dash ability to cross) and give the Shopkeeper’s Key to Sly. After that, Sly will sell the Knight some new items like a couple of Mask Shards (the first one costs 800 Geo and the second one costs 1500 Geo), a Vessel Fragment (costs 900 Geo), the Heavy Blow Charm (costs 350 Geo), the Elegant Key (costs 800 Geo), and the Sprintmaster Charm (costs 400 Geo).
