A methodology of sorts to do Steel Soul easier.
One is None, Two is One
In a mode where losing all you health means losing hours of progress. It is important to NEVER let it go to zero. My simple solution? Quit the game when your health is at one. Don’t even try to heal, the risk is not worth it. Quit the game, and return to your save file. You’ll return to your bench, which might be a pain, but anything is better than losing the save file.
When facing enemies that deal 2 masks of damage, Two is also None
Extend what I said above to this point as well. Bosses such as the Traitor Lord and Hollow Knight and enemies such as Hive Guardian and Ooma can deal 2 maks of damage, so when around them, quit the game when at two or one health. You may wonder why Failed Guardian or the Nightmare King aren’t mentioned. That’s because:
Dreams are your Friend
You can’t die in dreams, so you can drop the above two remarks when in a dream. When essence hunting, priorities the dream variants of bosses over Dream Warriors, as they can actually kill you. Note that the Radiance can also actually kill you, but that isn’t a problem because:
Go for the Usurper Endings
For both Steel Soul and Steel Heart, defeating the Radiance isn’t necessary, so don’t. Just defeat the Hollow Knight to get either the Hollow Knight or Sealed Siblings ending.
If you follow all the above advice, then there is little reason to be all too cautious in the moment to moment gameplay. Just be aware of your health at all times.
