There is not a single NPC from the Dark Souls universe who is more iconic than Patches. This bald NPC is known for treachery and deceiving the player at all points. Given how celebrated the character is, FromSoftware has included him in Elden Ring and has given him an elaborate quest. In this Elden Ring guide, we have detailed all there is to know about completing Patches quest.

Elden Ring Patches Quest

To begin, the player needs to head inside the Murkwater Cave in Limgrave. Once inside, open up a chest to initiate a boss battle against Patches. It is important not to kill Patches right here – just damage him a little and he will begin begging for forgiveness. After doing that, he will set up a shop inside the Murkwater Cave.

After resetting the instance, speak with Patches to inquire about the other chest in the room. The second chest is a teleporter that takes the player to the Mistwood Outskirts in Limgrave. Rest at the Site of Grace and return to Patches in the Murkwater Cave again.

From there, travel to the Scenic Isle in Liurnia of the Lakes to come across Patches once more. Speak with him about the Abductor Virgins and then travel to Mt. Gelmir. Once there, travel toward the northwest edge of the Site of Grace to come across some colorful stones on the ground. Follow these stones to an edge at which Patches will do something iconic – no spoilers. After he has done his thing, speak to him once more to learn about Volcano Manor.

After joining Volcano Manor, speak with Patches at the entrance to get an assassination contract. Once the contract is completed, return to Patches to get a reward. After defeating Rykard, Lord of Blasphemy, speak with Patches once more. After completing Tanith’s quest, speak with Patches one last time before the entrance to Elemer of the Briar boss in the Shaded Castle to get the Dancer’s Castanets.

Lastly, do note that Patches can be summoned during the battle against Radahn but what he does there is hilarious to say the least.

This is all we have got in how to complete Patches quest in Elden Ring. For more help on the game, be sure to check out our detailed Elden Ring wiki page.
