???? 3300 Siegbrau

Lapp is an NPC in Dark Souls 3. He is part of second DLC, The Ringed City. A man with a plate-armor helm you can encounter at Dreg Heap. He states that he's an amnesiac hollow and calls himself "Lapp." Maybe he could be a reliable fellow...

Lapp Information

  • Killable
  • Events with this NPC
  • Can be summoned for The Demon Prince fight on the ledge right before you drop down.
  • Can be summoned for The Spear of the Church fight behind the right door to the cathedral, given that you have completed his questline. 

Lapp's Questline

  1. You can find Lapp first at The Dreg Heap, then at The Ringed City (Location)
  2. Dreg Heap: After the tower falls down, destroying a portion of the chuch with 2 Lothric Knights in it, go back in and use it as a bridge to find him.
  3. Earthen Peak: Next to the first bonfire, he's just sitting there on a piece of elevated ground before the angels start appearing, in order for him to move to the next point, you need to grab the Titanite Slab. He will speak to you about treasure and if you don't retrieve it he'll have it for you later. (You can quickly obtain the slab by quitting and reloading three times. Lapp will have moved down to just below where he was sitting. Exhaust all dialog for the treasure.)
  4. He can then be summoned on the ledge right before the Demon Prince fight. A Siegbrau can be found where you met him in Earthen Peak after the fight.
  5. Ringed City Inner Wall: He's on a balcony, straight across from the locked shortcut door. Speak to him to get a Siegbrau and he will mention seeking the Purging Monument
  6. Swamp: As soon as you go down the steps, turn left and follow the wall to see a ladder (Mind the monks). Climb this ladder and go up the stairs, then turn left. You should spot a Ringed Spear Knight, he should have a regular Ringed Knight hidden further down. Lure them one by one. Past them is an entrance leading to a round area with a couple chairs. Lapp is there sitting on one.
  7. After you find the Purging Monument, come back and tell him how to get to it. You have until the final boss of the DLC to do this, after which he goes completely hollow and becomes hostile.
  8. Final Appearance: Crumbling staircase right after your first meeting with the dragon Midir. As soon as you're past the part where he breathes fire along the path, turn right and go down into the Shared Grave. There's a bit of rubble there that may look impassable, but it is not. He's in the room directly to your right. Just do what he says (familiar cutscene will play) and he should drop the Lapp's Set and Champion's Bones (if you don't own Ashes of Ariandel) in front of that same room. NOTE: He drops the items outside the room in shared graves. In otherwords, you have to get back up. You do not need to reload the area.
  9. He can be summoned, as his true identity, for the Halflight, Spear of the Church Boss fight. His sign is behind the door on the left, but you must have completed the above steps for it to appear.


Combat Information


First encounter dialogue

"Oh, look at you, you've got your head screwed on correct.
Fantastic, to meet a kindred spirit, on this godforsaken crag.

Call me Lapp. I can't remember my real name, so let's just go with that.
I have a feeling we're going to make a fabulous team. Oh, you'll see, you'll see!
ohh, in all honesty there's something I should tell you
I'm..a hollow. Yes, I try to play it off, but i haven't a clue about my past.
Who I was , or what I lived for. Not even my own blessed name.
That's why I've come here, searching - for the purging monument, said to be in the ringed city. Where the pygmies who found the dark souls at the dawn of fire reside.
All I can say is, those little stones aren't doing much to help me remember anymore.

Well, that's the long and short of it,
so if I completely forget who you are, don't be wrath with me
cmon what else can I say, I'm a bloody hollow for heaven's sake!"

Second encounter dialogue

"Oh, I know who you are
Great to still see you in one piece
Cor, I can see why they call this the dreg heap at the world's end
Mangled remnants from every age and every land

It actually lends credence to the old rumours
that the ringed city rests below it all

Ah, don't mind me, you needn't worry yourself with this nonsense.

I just wanted to tell someone, and I'm sick of old humpty

I should stay quiet. wait, I'll make it up to you and let you in on a secret
past here, you'll find the remains of a giant earthern tower,
not a very nice place to visit, only there's precious treasure in the thick of the swamp
I ddn't have any use for it you see, but I left the package behind
if I get the chance i could go fetch it for you, but maybe you'd rather go grab it yoruself?
i know who you are, a righteous warrior, yes, with a solemn duty to boot?
well grab that treaurse, that's as good a treasure as any.

Ohh, look at you, you found the treasure
dashing, just dashing, you'll make good use of it I'm sure
now this is a little toast from me to you
not much to speak of, but bottoms up - to the greatest warrior there is.

If you don't find the treasure

Oh, there you are - perfect timing
you remember that treasure?
well, I fetched it for you, as promised.
oh, it was only a hop and a skip - I needed a rest from old nan over there
here, go ahead, its yours - maybe it'll help you with that solemn duty of yours
this really is a dreg heap at the worlds end
mangled remnants from every age......."

Third encounter

Oh, well, fancy meeting you here.
A true blessing, that we should seek the same place, and find ourselves standing here, together.
I've got the last of my brew. Let's have our own little toast with it.
To my search, and to your duty. And to the joy that lies before us.
All right, then. Bottoms up! Now, I'm off in search of the Purging Monument.
Once I find it, everything will come back to me.
Who I was, what I lived for, what my name was.
What terrible grudges I held.

...I dunno, I just have this feeling. That that's the kind of man I was.
Oh, don't hold it against me, I only think I was! Now, I'm off in search of the Purging Monument.
Once I find it, everything will come back to me.

When you find him after opening the Show Your Humanity shortcut

Oh, and here we are again.
How goes things? I'm rather running in circles, I'm afraid.
I can't find the Purging Monument. And I've searched high and low.
What if it was never here in the first place?
Ah, bloody hell, what do I know.
Sorry, I know it doesn't concern you.
Seeing you all good and well, I...
I just sort of spilled my guts to you.
Just forget it all. Like a good Hollow would!

...What did I come here in search of?

Damn, stop it, I'm unbreakable, unbreakable.

...Ahh, please, someone tell me...

If you tell him where the Purging Monument is:

Who am I? Why am I here?
Are you certain of that?
No, sorry, I know you'd never lie to me.
Thank you, thank you kindly. I'll speed right on over.
It won't be long now, before I know everything.
Who I was, what I lived for, and what my name was.
And I'll have you to thank for it all.

Ahh, thank you, most sincerely.
I swear upon my birth name.
That I am your friend. No matter what might come out, no matter what I was.
If you would do me the honour, allow me to be a true friend, always.

It won't be long now, before I know everything.
Who I was, what I lived for, and what my name was.
And I'll have you to thank for it all.

Final encounter:

Oh, finally, you've come.
Now I know exactly who I was. And for that, I've a little thanks to be giving.
Go this way, and peep past the broken staircase. Some awfully fine treasure's just sitting there all alone.
It'll change your life.

I've much to thank you for, so I'll say it again and again.
Go this way, and peep past the broken staircase. Some awfully fine treasure's just sitting there all alone.
What, don't you believe me?

Every age, it seems, is tainted by the greed of men.
Rubbish, to one such as I, devoid of all worldly wants! Hmmm, I dunno, maybe it's just the way we are.
I'll stick you in my prayers. A fine dark soul, to you.


What's wrong, friend?
Stop it! Oh, please!
...Bloody hell! Lost your mind, have you?
Then I have no choice! Forgive me!
...I deserved this.

Forgive me, friend.
I cannot die just yet.
What in bloody hell?
Stop that! Enough of that!
...Bloody hell, you've lost your head, have you?
Then, let's have a go, shall we.
I'm unbreakable! You can't crack me! I'll rot yer flesh!
...Curses, of all the luck.

Everything always goes to pot, doesn't it.

True friends, eh?
Everything always goes to pot, doesn't it.


  • Lapp in swedish translates to Patch.
  • You can gain the Patches Squat Gesture (if you don't already have it) from Lapp when you meet him by shared grave after you tell him about the purging monument.
  • Strangely, if his true self is killed in Lothric, Lapp still appears in The Ringed City DLC.
  • Voice actors, chracter inspirations, fan art, cosplay goes here.

      I'd have said more of appreciation than surprise. See the song Chim Chim Cheree in Mary Poppins
      "The rooftops of London,
      Cor! What a sight!"
      The character (Dick van Dyke as a chimney sweep trying, and failing, to produce a London accent) was not surprised by the rooftops of London, just showing his appreciation/delight in the view.

          I found the slab and ring of favor +3 before i met lapp the first time. Now, he's at earthen peak ruins but wont leave. Any way to move him or is his questline screwed?

            If the Dreg Heap and the Ringed City exist "at world's end," and if this is a world where epochs seem to converge and stack on each other, then maybe that would explain how Patches is able to span so many timelines? Then again, the Undead never really followed the laws of time, but still, you have to wonder why just this one NPC is able to cross so many universes, seemingly with no recollection of his other incarnations...

                Man, this ***** is though! Reminds me on Friede: Very fast and endless stamina. ... I attacked him in the staircase because I don't like to be pushed from behind. But he has beaten me up twice. The third time, he was very close. That was when I realized that I'm not hard enough to deal with such a ***** and therefore I was letting Midir doing the job. ... Though looks like Midir kept Lapps Armor as a compensation. (Lapp hasn't dropped it, nor did I find it in the staircase, where I met him.)

                  In one playthrough I killed Patches already inside the Cathedral of the Deep and in another playthrough he was still in the firelink shrine when I played the DLC and still at the end of the DLC, there was no reaction of Patches in the firelink shrine regarding his strange behaviour in the Ringed City ;-). Isn't it confusing, that the questline is still identical or is it just because I don't get the logic of the whole Dark Souls story? And did anyone try out what happens to Lapp, if kill Patches in the firelink shrine, while doing Lapps questline?

                    Note: You can still finish the entire DLC before doing Lapps Quest (I never found his first location until I finished the DLC)
                    For Step 7: "After you find the Purging Monument, come back and tell him how to get to it. You have until the final boss of the DLC to do this, after which he goes completely hollow and becomes hostile" - Just make sure you have found the Purging Monument before talking to him at this location.

                      Maybe this was either bugged or patched by now, but I did pretty much the entire quest after all bosses was down. (both aunt Gail and Mildred the tanky dragon) And that did not happened.

                        Surely defeating him in Lothric would contribute to the undead curse build up making him turn into Lapp as he went more and more hollow.

                          Please correct the dialogue a bit. Lapp says "Dark Soul," not Dark Souls. I played through the Ringed City again and re-heard the words straight from Lapp's mouth. -Mikko

                              I've defeated Friede but not the Champion Gravetender but when i completed Lapp's quest i was given the champions bones. Really feel like there's now no need for me to go to the bottom of the painting.

                                If you didn't beat the Champion's gravetender boss, you will get the Champion's bones at the final encounter with Lapp as alternative to it.

                                    So do you need a Titanite Slad or The Ring of Favor +3 to continue his questline in Earthen Peak? I'm getting mixed answers. Someone clarify.

                                      I don't understand FROM. Lapp/Patches is supposed to be our one true buddy, right? A murderous traitor making his fortnune by killing adventures. Like us. 2 times. Is this some eastern philosophy thing or what want FROM tell us? That we are the same scumbag if we buy his sh** he killed for and if our character forgives him it suddenly doesn't count? This is an impossible plot.

                                        Sooo what is this supposed to mean? Patches is for some reason at the End of the World with a new set of armor and doesn't remember who he is? Is this supposed to be the past present or future he? If it's the past, how does he not remember us? and if it's present/ future, why wouldn't killing him in Lothric kill him outright? It doesn't seem to make any sense or be there for any reason besides being a plot twist. Why is nothing in these DLC explained!
