Hollow Knight Notch Locations
Charm Lover Salubra is a Merchant in the Forgotten Crossroads who sells 4 Notches.
She is located at the South-Eastern side of the Forgotten Crossroads, and is only available once The Knight has defeated one of the Bosses, Gruz Mother, and acquiring the Abilities Mothwing Cloak or Mantis Claw.
To purchase Notches from Salubra, The Knight needs to own a certain amount of Charms. Below is a small table detailing these prerequisites and prices:
