Elden Ring Continues the Souls Series’ Longest In-Joke

Warning: This article contains spoilers for the first Elden Ring location.

Elden Ring continued FromSoftware’s long-running joke by once again including a character that Souls fans love to hate. At the Elden Ring starting location in Limgrave, players can find Patch, a bald-headed trickster who has been constantly playing pranks on players throughout the Soulsborne series. This time, Patches can be found in the Darkwater Cave. If you want to find it, you need to follow the river to the north and watch the entrance to the dungeon. Once again, he can be a valuable ally with his collection of merchandise on sale (you might want to look through his inventory before heading to Stormvale Castle), but naturally, he will inconvenience you before offering you any help.

This is the sixth incarnation of the Patches. He first appeared in Demon’s Souls as Patches the Hyena and was later seen in Dark Souls (as Trusty Patches), Bloodborne (as Patches the Spider), and Dark Souls 3 and it’s Ringed City DLC (as Unbreakable Patches). Dark Souls 2 also features a Patch-style character, but he was known as Soft Pate.
