How to Start the Grimm Troupe Quest in Hollow Knight

To start the Grimm Troupe quest in Hollow Knight, you'll need to track down a secret location at the Howling Cliffs.

The first step when it comes to starting the Grimm Troupe quest in Hollow Knight is heading to the Howling Cliffs. Once you arrive at the Howling Cliffs, you’ll need to seek out a breakable wall. This breakable will reveals a secret pathway once broken that heads off to the right. Follow the path until you reach a dead end and an insect corpse.

Inspect the insect corpse, then head back into the room you passed just prior to reaching the dead end. Here, you’ll spot a bonfire which needs to be lit. Upon striking the bonfire, all of the torches will light up in the background and music will begin to play. Next, head back to Dirtmouth. If you scan the area, you’ll notice a new tent has popped up.

To start the Grimm Troupe quest in Hollow Knight, be sure to talk to Divine as well as the Troupe Master.

Head into the smaller tent on your left and talk to Divine, who will ask you why you called the Grimm Troupe here. Next, to officially start the Grimm Troupe quest, you’ll need to head inside the large tent and speak with the Troupe Master.
