The 1.04 update for Elden Ring has finally added the conclusion to Patches’ quest – here’s how you can finish the questline!

Patches is a notorious character throughout almost all of FromSoftware’s games, Elden Ring included. Unfortunately, he is just as untrustworthy when you find him in the Lands Between.

While Patches had a whole questline in Elden Ring that involved the mysterious Volcano Manor, it remained unfinished. Until now, that is.

As part of the huge 1.04 update for Elden Ring, FromSoftware has finally added the conclusion to Pacthes’ questline.

  • Once you have given Tanith the Dancer’s Castanets, head to Murkwater Cave in Limgrave.
  • Go through the cave and pass through the doorway to the boss room.
  • Open the chest, and Patches will ambush you like the first time you encountered him.
  • However, Patches will recognize you while you are fighting and surrender. This will give you the Patches’ Crouch emote. It isn’t the best reward but can be fun if you enjoy trolling players in Elden Ring PvP!
  • Finally, speak to Patches and exhaust his dialogue. When you return, he will have reopened his shop.
