Players in Hollow Knight will face numerous foes during their exploration of Hallownest, many of whom are exclusive to that area. A bestiary is helpful in this situation because it can be challenging to remember the many kinds of enemies and how to deal with them.
This compendium will not be available to players now; instead, they must seek out an NPC to acquire it and start the quest with it. Two achievements associated with the Hunter’s Journal can be earned by players who accept the challenge, but it is no easy undertaking, and only a true hunter can complete it.
A secluded portion of Greenpath, away from the rest of Hallownest, is home to The Hunter, who lives in a completely black cave. To the east of Greenpath, players should move south from Cornifer’s location and turn right through a constrained path that leads to a broader area. Its numerous spikes that stick out of the ground and ceiling of an otherwise beautiful room serve as a warning to the player of Hunter’s location.
The Hunter will roar as players get closer as a warning from inside his cave, but don’t let this action scare you away. To communicate with him, players should keep going. The Hunter then hands the Knight his Journal while stating that, although the words may be challenging initially, readers can become accustomed to them.
The Hunter’s Journal will become an additional tab on the player’s menu screen, joining Charms, the map, and inventories. The details of adversaries that have already been encountered can be shown here, and the information is updated immediately as soon as a new enemy is defeated.
Unfortunately, the Hunter’s Journal has a lot of incomplete entries. However, Hunter’s notes can be found by killing a certain number of each entry. These notes include information about lore, combat strategies, and even Hunter’s viewpoints, but most importantly, they are required to finish the Journal.
