Rosaries: What You Need To Know About Hollow Knight: Silksong's New Currency

Are you a Hollow Knight master? Have you beaten all of its hardest bosses? Have you seen all of Hollow Knight's endings? Are you eager for more? If so, get ready, because Hollow Knight: Silksong should satisfy that itch. While there will be plenty of familiar elements to make Hollow Knight enthusiasts feel at home, there are seemingly small changes that will make a huge difference in the sequel.


The game's development has been largely under wraps until Edge magazine published its February 2021 issue, offering a wealth of new details right from Team Cherry. So far, you probably know about Hollow Knight: Silksong's quest system, how the combat will differ from the first game, its new protagonist, and the game's Silk Soul Mode. One question that remains is how you can purchase items in the game. 

In the first Hollow Knight, players used a type of currency called Geo. It came in three forms, valued at 1, 5, and 25 units. What form of currency will this Hollow Knight sequel utilize? This is what you need to know about Hollow Knight: Silksong's Rosaries.

Rosary Beads replace Geo in Hollow Knight: Silksong

Hollow Knight: Silksong replaces Geo with Rosary Beads. According to Edge, this new currency can be found suspended from cavern ceilings, and you can strike the Beads to add them to your inventory. You will also obtain Rosary Beads from fallen enemies.


Once you collect Rosary Beads, you can secure them by stringing them together. What this does is it prevents you from losing all your Beads after you die. If you want to buy something, you simply remove them from the string. If you want to be safe and ensure you won't lose your earnings from an unexpected death, you can either find stray string throughout your travels or have your Beads restrung by a vendor for a small fee.

These Beads should be a huge help when journeying through the world of Pharloom, so get ready to start collecting them whenever Silksong makes its debut on PC, iOS, and Switch.
