Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue where player could get stuck inside walls if hit by a boss right next to a wall.
  • Added a fix for Soul Trigger populating your characters save slot.

  • Fixed incorrect text for cooldown time on the ability menu.
  • Energy shield now correctly gives 4% increased damage.
  • Fixed a bug where Hitting hollow knight enemies would sometimes display the damage amount when hit.
