One of the most beloved characters of the Dark Souls series is Patches, the crafty merchant who has made his way into the Lands Between of Elden Ring as well. While he had an extensive questline previously, his tale has received its conclusion with the game’s latest Patch 1.04. The steps to completing Patches’ questline in Elden Ring are the same as before, yet players can get two new optional rewards from progressing through and completing his tale. Therefore, to get started, Tarnished must pay the sly bandit a visit within his initial home of Murkwater Cave in Limgrave.
How To Finish Patches’ Questline In Elden Ring
Elden Ring fans will first encounter Patches as the Dungeon Boss of Murkwater Cave. However, once spared, he will become a merchant that will relocate to Volcano Manor after players speak with Tanith. There are other two locations in Liurnia and Mt. Gelmir where players can find him, but these encounters are optional for Patches’ questline in Elden Ring.
Next, after meeting with Patches in Volcano Manor, carry out the first assassination contract from Tanith. Next, return to the crafty vendor and complete a request for him by slaying Great Horned Tragoth of Ruin-Strewn Precipice. Keep in mind that his red summoning sign will only appear once the Dungeon’s Boss, Magma Wyrm Makar, has been slain. Return to the manor to receive the Magma Whip from Patches as a reward.
Complete the Volcano Manor’s questline and head to the Shaded Castle, located in the valley north of the Bridge of Iniquity. Clear the Dungeon by killing Elemer of the Briar and reload the area to find Patches on the walkway outside the boss room. He will give players the Dancer’s Castanets, which can be given to Tanith in Rykard’s lair. Finally, go back to Murkwater Cave in Limgrave and face off against Patches for a final time to acquire the receive the Patches’ Crouch Gesture. Make sure not to kill as that will ruin Patches’ questline in Elden Ring. Finally, players can get the Extreme Repentance Gesture by attacking Patches three times and then using the emote to end the fight.
