Ringfinger Leonhard is a NPC in Dark Souls 3.
- Introduces players to PvP
- Quest interacts with Rosaria, Mother of Rebirth
- Gives you the Lift Chamber Key
- Gives Applause Gesture.
- Can be distracted using Alluring Skulls during invasion.
- Start: You will first meet Leonhard after reaching the second bonfire at the High Wall of Lothric. Return to Firelink Shrine to find Leonhard leaning against Holy King Lothric's throne. Speaking to him will grant you five Cracked Red Eye Orbs.
- After obtaining 1 Pale Tongue, and lighting the Cliff Underside bonfire or defeating the Curse-Rotted Greatwood in the Undead Settlement, Leonhard will give you the Lift Chamber Key to the locked door below the Tower on the Wall bonfire. (Note: Pale Tongue must still be in the inventory at this encounter, if you use it, he will not appear)
- At the Tower on the Wall bonfire head down two levels and open the locked gate. Take the lift down and defeat the Darkwraith to obtain the Red Eye Orb. Then return to Firelink Shrine and speak to Leonhard again.
- Once you reach the Cathedral of the Deep, find Rosaria´s Fingers in Rosaria's Chamber at the second floor of the Cathedral of the Deep and offer at least 1 Pale Tongue to Rosaria (Do NOT rank up in Rosaria's Fingers until the next event happens)
- Speak to Leonhard at Rosaria's Chamber (over by the entrance to the chamber) and exhaust his dialogue.
- After reaching the Profaned Capital bonfire, return to Rosaria's Chamber and pick up the Black Eye Orb in front of Rosaria's corpse.
- Go to Gwynevere's bed chamber, above the Aldrich, Devourer of Gods bonfire. Here you will receive a prompt to use the Black Eye Orb to invade Leonhard.
- End: Kill him here to obtain his hat (Silver Mask), Soul of Rosaria (use to revive her or to purchase Bountiful Sunlight miracle from Ludleth at Firelink Shrine), and the Crescent Moon Sword.
- This quest can be easily and quickly completed at the end of the game if the player chooses to complete Sirris' questline first. If the initial stages of receiving his Cracked Red Eye Orbs and the Lift Chamber Key have not been completed, perform these by talking to Leonhard in Firelink Shrine. Once he tells you to join Rosaria's Fingers, go to Rosaria's Bed Chamber and offer Rosaria a Pale Tongue. Leonhard will then appear at the entrance and you must talk to him and exhaust his dialogue. Then use a Homeward Bone or Coiled Sword Fragment to return to the last bonfire rested at (Bringing you to same place). At this point, Rosaria will be dead and you can loot the Black Eye Orb from her corpse. Now travel to the "Aldrich, Devourer of Gods" bonfire and use the elevator to go up to Gwynevere's bed chamber. Here you can use the Black Eye Orb to invade Leonhard and kill him. By this process you will get the Silver Mask, Crescent Moon Sword and Rosaria's Soul immediately.
- Equipping the Rosaria's Fingers covenant item or turning in any number of Pale Tongues will halt you from progressing Sirris' questline, although you can finish his questline at any point after you do Sirris' questline. Simply asking to join and obtaining the Rosaria's Fingers will not halt the progress of Sirris' questline, nor will reallocating attributes or changing appearance.
- If you kill Leonhard before you have killed the Darkwraith locked in the Undead Settlement, the Red Eye Orb will be replaced wih a Pale Tongue. It is recomended to wait until after you have defeated the Darkwraith before you attempt to kill him.
- You can still use every one of Rosaria's services without returning her Soul, so it is recommended not to return it.
- Souls: NG (1000)
- Gives you: Lift Chamber Key
- If killed upon invasion in Gwynevere's room in Anor Londo:
- If killed without finishing his quest:
First encounter dialogue
Mm, Unkindled, are we...
And fast on the trail of the Lords absconded?
Then these red eyes are for you."
(Gives Cracked Red Eye Orb x5)
"Use them to pillage embers, and briefly heighten your strength, for your duty.
What else are unkindled ashes good for?"
After obtaining Pale Tongue
Well, hasn't it been some time.
I'm Leonhard, the Ringfinger.
Remember me? I slipped you those red eyes some time ago.
You're making quite an effort of it. So I thought you might like to know.
If you yearn for a proper red eye orb, one that is uncracked...
Then kill the Darkwraith, survivor of the land swallowed by darkness.
He has been a prisoner, for many ages. In the deepest cell in all Lothric..."
(Gives Lift Chamber Key)
"I can see it in your eyes. If you didn't invade, didn't pillage, whatever would you do?"
After obtaining Red Eye Orb
Ah-hah, you've found a proper red eye...
Brilliant. I knew you were no ordinary man/woman."
(Gives Applause gesture)
"Now invade and pillage all you like.
And if you grow weary of your duty, you, too, may become a Finger.
Come on, give yourself to Rosaria, of the Cathedral of the Deep."
In Rosiaria's Bed Chamber after joining covenant
"Ahh, so you've chosen to serve Rosaria after all.
She will be pleased with me for finding her another Finger...
But be warned, my friend.
Rosaria's Fingers need only fetch tongues for their mistress.
Otherwise, we are free, unchained.
Like Yellowfinger, you can choose to believe that all Fingers share camoradarie.
But do not force your romance on the rest of us."
"What's wrong with you?"
"Can you even hear me? If you can, cease this at once.
Before it's too late."
"I see, I see, as clear as day.
You are a vile, starved beast.
Much too dangerous for her!"
"You beast. You've trifled with the wrong knight."
"Curses, I can't... die here...
My dear Goddess..."
When invaded in Anor Londo
"Well, well, never expected to see you here.
Felt sorry for the poor thing, in all her festering glory?
And now you want to ravage her soul, as well.
I sowed the seeds. I'll prune the mess.
I, Leonhard, swear so upon my vows to the goddess."
"No one will despoil her soul.
Certainly no beast wrapped in human skin!"
"What do you want with her soul?
Isn't flesh enough for a sick beast?!"
Killing the player's invading phantom
"Enough with you, my friend.
A knight of the goddess does not die."
Invading after being defeated
"Well, well, back for more, are you?
Vicious one, aren't you? I knew it all along.
And now you want to ravage her soul, as well."
"You are no longer of use. You'll run free no more.
I, Leonhard, swear so upon my vows to the goddess."
Death during invasion
- In the same vein as the Patches line of characters, Leonhard's name is a reference to Leonhardt from Armored Core 4. Ironically, Leonhard is a scoundrel, whereas Leonhardt is virtuous and noble.
- Very similar to Knight Lautrec of Carim from Dark Souls, with a shady personality, weapon set and even a quest with a Black Eye Orb.
- Voiced by Edward Bennett.
- Lore Theory By Hodor: Served Rosaria out of love, until he met the Lady Gwyn at the Prison Tower. Also, after seeing the Player Character take to murder and the way of a finger, he becomes disillusioned with his blood-lust and serves the Dark Moon Knights. -"Leonhard set out on a journey of rebirth, but decided instead to serve the goddess as a knight, and inherited this weapon." Possibly the intended spouse of Yorshka as he was a noble, after thinking her dead served Rosaria. Until finding her in the Prison Tower.
- Fact: Changes Covenant's during quest line. Doesn't have Crescent Moon Sword in Firelink Shrine.
- Leonhard's attire appears to be a reference to The Hunters of Bloodborne.
- Warning! If you offer a Pale Tongue to Rosaria, triggering the start of Leonhard's line; It can lockout Sirris content. Depending on what point you're at in the Sirris quest; You can miss the Silvercat Ring, a free Blessed Mail Breaker, Sunless Talisman and some of Sunset gear. Dragonslayer Axe and Mirrah Chain set as well, via trigger that stems from helping her. It's best to complete helping Sirris before triggering Leonhard's content.
