Gathering Swarm in Hollow Knight is one out of the 45 Charms that is found in the game.

Charms require Notches and can only be equipped and unequipped while having The Knight sit on a bench.


Gathering Swarm Information

"Useful for those who can't bear to leave anything behind, no matter how insignificant."

Gathering Swarm is a charm that is used to collect all of the Geo that has been dropped from killed enemies and bosses. This is also useful if Geo drops at unreachable platforms like spikes and thorns, allowing the swarm to fly towards that Geo to recover and bring back to The Knight, however, geo won't be added to your inventory if a player exits an area right before the swarm has recovered it, this also applies to geo that has dropped into a pool of acid or into another area.

Another point to take note of is that the swarm will not collect geo that has been dropped by Grubfather or geo that you obtain from completing a trial in the Colosseum of Fools.
