Lapp, Totally Not Patches

Lapp, who is totally not Patches, 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, who is totally not Patches 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 church 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 reloading the area with quitting or using homeward bones 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. (I found Lapp on the balcony after defeating Slave Knight Gael and I was still able to proceed with this questline without Lapp going hollow).
  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 other words, 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 right, but you must have completed the above steps for it to appear.

Dialogue

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
c'mon 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 earthen 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 yourself?
i know who you are, a righteous warrior, yes, with a solemn duty to boot?
well grab that treasure, 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
Siegbrau
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
TITANITE SLAB
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.
And....
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.

Hostile:

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

      There is no point in which you cannot complete this quest series, even if you kill Patches. You can kill all bosses in the entire game including all DLC bosses and this quest will remain available to complete.

        He can't be patches, I killed patches in my current playthrough and Lapp is alive and well, unless this is in another dimension

          I dont know how to edit the article but to make him fully hostile and hollow, you speak to him 3 times after either dying or leaving and returning to the arera, he will lose his mind slowly and on the 4th time he will be hollow and attack

            Actually, it would make more sense that Lapp would appear in ringed city if you killed him in Lothric. Patches/Lapp is an undead like most npcs so by killing him we would make him go hollow and you guessed it forget who he is. So it isn’t strange at all now is it.

                I killed Lapp in Dreg Heap and he didnt drop the champion ashes for undead arena, how do I unlock arena now? I didnt feel like doing his questline again

                  Isn't he undead? Which is why he is found in the Ringed City despite a death in Lothric? It makes sense, because Undead can respawn at bonfires as long as they hold on to their humanity

                        It seems like this quest might lead to a guaranteed Symbol of Avarice. I beat the game and the DLC, then looked up how to finally find the Purging Stone. Told Lapp about it and then went to the Shared Grave. In one of the rooms, there was a Symbol of Avarice just sitting there (it might have been where the Mimic used to be?) The rest of the questline played out as expected: he was in a room squatting, kicked me over a ledge, and then I found Lapp's set when I got back up.

                        Haven't seen anyone else mention this happening, but it really made sense to me that after Lapp realized who he really was, I found a Symbol of Avarice. It could mean that he went scrounging for treasure, or it could mean that he left his Avarice behind, which is in line with him saying he was "devoid of all worldly wants".

                          Actually, his whole questline can be done without him turning hostile after beating Gael.

                          You simply need to avoid his questline until Gael has been defeated, then you can begin his quest and complete it (to summon him for the Spear of the Church boss, you'll have to reinstate the king's decree)

                            I was doing my second playthrough of the ringed city and after summoning Lapp for the Demon prince boss fight he never appeared again nor in the balcony neither sitting on the chair. Even went to the Shared grave and no luck either.What did i do wrong, in the first run had no problem at all.

                                Really liked finding that last siegbrau at the Dreg Heap after concluding his quest. A nice subtle touch that gives his character a lot of depth. His personality and helpfulness as Lapp, the concern he showed for Greirat, and then this last little gift even after he's back to "normal." Makes you wonder what kind of character he really is.

                                  I love how the author of this page didn't even mention once Lapp's true identity. Whoever wrote this is the real OG, keeping the spoilers for anyone who needs help. Good job author, you've earned my Siegbrau.

                                    For some reason in my latest game, Lapp stayed on the Balcony and wouldn't leave for the Swamp no matter what I did.
