Unbreakable Patches Information

Unbreakable Patches can be found within the Cathedral of the Deep disguised as Siegward of Catarina. His spawn trigger is to open the main doors, on the left of the boss room, reload the area and then return. You MUST do this before lighting the bonfire at Rosaria's Bed Chamber. He will trick you into entering the bridge which he will then lower down to the giants. If you meet him again on the other side of that bridge in front of Rosaria's chamber, he will apologize for tricking you, and if you refuse to forgive him you'll earn the prostration gesture and a rusted coin. He will then become a vendor in that spot until he moves to Firelink Shrine

  • If you climb up onto the rafters at the very top of the Cathedral before he tricks you to cross the bridge, he will not show by the bridge. Only cross the rafters after you have been tricked. After dropping down, he will reappear in his normal attire by the lever that raises the bridge (across from where you first met him in the Catarina armor).
  • If Patches lowers you down to the giants in the Cathedral of the Deep, he will not show up to lock you into the Firelink Shrine tower until you talk to him again on the other side of the bridge in the Cathedral.
  • If you kill the giants in the Cathedral of the Deep before talking to Patches by the bridge, he will be shocked that the giants are gone when he lowers you back down to the cathedral floor. Regardless he will still show up on the other side of the walkway by Rosaria's bedchamber.

An alternative method of meeting him (if you first lighted Rosaria's bonfire, before opening the main gate) is to buy the Tower Key and access the lift above the Firelink Shrine. He will trap you here (after you open the main gate). After escaping his trap he becomes a merchant in the upper floor of Firelink Shrine. Chose to not forgive him for a Rusted Gold Coin and to learn the gesture Prostration. After reloading the area he will be squatting down. Talk to him to learn the Patches Squat gesture

 

Patches Questline

Patches can have an important effect on the questlines of NPCs Siegward of Catarina and Greirat of the Undead Settlement.

  1. He has Siegward's Armor equipped after trapping Siegward and stealing it from him. This armor is needed to save Siegward in the well outside the Cathedral of the Deep. Opening the Cathedral doors is not the trigger for Patches to have the armor, you need to actually reload the Cathedral area. You do not need to talk to Siegward in the well first.You can buy the armor from Patches or just kill him for it.
  2. When Greirat leaves on his second scavenger mission Patches will refuse to sell you any items until you tell him where Greirat has gone. If you have not yet bought the Catarina armor off of him and tell him where Greirat has gone he will save him. After killing Pontiff Sulyvahn, Patches ceases to pester you for Greirat's location. If you have bought the armor off of him and given it to Siegward in the well, Siegward will instead rescue him.
  3. After Greirat has left to scavenge in Lothric Castle, Patches will ask where he has gone. If you tell him, he will stop selling you items and will leave Firelink Shrine until you defeat a boss. He returns with a Hidden Blessing which he sells for 16,000 souls.

 

Notes:

  • If Siegward dies before or during the fire demon fight, Patches will not show up for the rest of the game cycle.
  • If you kill the Giant Slave before being tricked by Patches, you will get additional dialog. Patches is irritated that you killed the Giant, shames you and curses a lot.
  • Patches has a number of triggers than cause him to appear in a given area.
    • He will appear in the Cathedral of the Deep after its front door is opened and you travel away and return to the area.
    • If the Deacons of the Deep are killed or you take the shortcut to Rosaria, Patches will disappear from the cathedral. He will next appear if you go up the bell tower in Firelink Shrine and locks you in.
    • Opening the front door of the Cathedral of the Deep and then going up the bell tower in Firelink Shrine will trigger Patches' event early.
    • If you meet him at neither the cathedral or the bell tower, he will appear as a merchant after you defeat the Abyss Watchers.
  • If you give Siegward his armor before you meet Patches if you kept it from a previous playthrough he will not spawn in the Cathedral and will spawn in the tower in Firelink Shrine.
  • If you can't find Patches at all, save Siegward and then talk to Siegward inside the well outside the Cleansing Chapel bonfire. This triggers Patches story to continue. 
  • If you have missed Patches triggers by going to far and can't get him to show up in Cathedral of the Deep, you can go back to Firelink and trigger him there. When he shows up as a merchant in Firelink you can buy the Catarina Armor from him there to continue Siegward's quest line in the Chapel.
  • His dialogue at Cathedral of the Deep and the bell tower at Firelink Shrine varies based on your character's gender.
  • If you talk to Patches in the Cathedral and then proceed to the ceiling rafters to the drop off point near Rosaria, the event will no longer occur upon crossing the narrow pathway,and he will not be present till the Firelink event.
  • Attacking Greirat will aggro Patches.
  • If you tell Patches where Greirat has gone after you send him to Lothric Castle, after defeating every boss in the game, you will have no way of getting Patches to return to Firelink. Unfortunately, even if you have The Ringed City DLC installed and you reinstate Judicator Argo to reset the Halflight, Spear of the Church boss fight, defeating this boss will not make Patches come back.

Dialogue

First encounter (Cathedral of the Deep)

"Well, you look reasonably sane.
I am a knight of Catarina.
I've managed to track down this cathedral's store of treasure.
It's right over there, across that narrow part.
Treasure...hmm. Always so close, yet so far...
I'm in quite a pickle (laughs), indeed...
Hmm... Hmm..."

"Just hold your horses a moment.
I know, I know, treasure is so sorely tempting...
Hmm... Hmm..."

Walking the bridge

"Shame on you, you greedy guts."
(Female: "Shame on you, you insatiable wench." - he still says greedy guts, but subtitle is different)
(Cleric Male: "Shame on you, you rotten cleric.")
(Cleric Female: "Shame on you, you rotten nun.")
"Thought you could outwit an onion?
Well, say hello to the nice giant! He adores visitors." (laughs hysterically)

(If giant is already dead) "Huh? Where's the old giant?
What! Where's the bloody giant?
Just what have you done?!
How dare you! Have you no shame!
*****! *****! *****!"

Second encounter (Cathedral of the Deep)

"Oh, yes, oh, hello, I don't believe we've met?
I'm Patches. Unbreakable Patches.
You seem to be Unkindled.
Do you have business with me?"

(You know who I am) "Ahh, oh, yes, of course...It's coming back to me, now.
Oh, I am sorry. That was my hand, as you know, but the deed, well, that was the armour's doing.
Regrettable, truly. But behold, I'm stripped clean of that unruly attire.
And look at you, not a scratch!
All's well that end well, right?
Yes, we'll be fine, I can tell, it's that rotten curse, it is, the untidy mess." (laughs)

"Oh, ahh, yes, now, it wasn't me, but you still deserve an apology.
Just a little trinket. Go ahead, it's yours now. (laughs)
You should know, I'm a kind of traveling merchant.
If you're as Unkindled as you look, you'll find plenty of good stuff."

(No) "Of course not, we have just met, after all.
Sorry, I've been a bit on edge. Forget I even asked. (laughs)
Ahh, but this is your lucky day.
I happen to be a world-renowned travelling merchant.
If you're as Unkindled as you look, you'll find many a useful thing here."

Third Encounter (Firelink Shrine Tower)

(laughs) "Sorry, friend.
Be more careful! By the gods, curiosity is going to kill you kittens.
Some places are better left alone, you know.
Oh, sorry, am I a tad too late? (laughs)

"Have no fear, there's beauty in death.
Besides, you're surrounded by ladies. Every man's dream, right?" (laughs)
(Female: "Besides, you're amongst your own. Plenty of company, right?")
(Cleric Male: "Besides, you're surrounded by ladies. Every rotten cleric's dream, right?")
(Cleric Female: "Besides, you're amongst your own. Plenty of company, right?")

"Oh, no matter, I'll look after things.
By stripping every last trinket off your corpse.
You're going to make some lucky customer very happy." (laughs)

Fourth Encounter (Firelink Shrine)

"Ah, oh, you, you're alive...
Now, hold your horses, let's have a nice talk about this.
I'll come clean, I did you wrong. I didn't mean it, though, not one bit.
You get these...urges...running the business and all...Oh, and I hate myself for it, I do.
You know what I mean? Terrible, really. But I can see you'll forgive me.
You're alive, after all, and that's what counts, right?"

(Forgive him) "Oh fantastic! A wily second chance!
I knew you'd understand, I just knew it.
The heart of a lion. A model for the rest of us. A true friend, forever."

(Do not forgive him) "Oh, for heaven's sake, no need to jest with a face like that.
You're still alive, and I'm here grovelling in the dirt, so to speak.
Oh, I know! Here, a token of my sincerity. Right and proper, eh?
We're just a couple of outcasts, let's make the best of it!" (laughs)

After meeting Greirat

"Ahh, I see you've met Greirat.
The slinking rodent. But he did me a good turn back in Lothric dungeon. Doubtless I should do something about that little debt, or[well]...maybe not.
Well, I can hardly believe he's still standing." (laughs)

After sending Greirat to pillage

"Hey, what happened to Greirat, anyhow?
I haven't seen him at all lately.
If you know where he's scurried off to, be sure and tell me.
I need to stock up, and if he's gone and croaked, he'll have left a goldmine."

[Don't tell him] "Right, yes, I see how it is.
Some things can't be divulged. Even between friends.
It comes with the territory, I know.
But if you happen to recall any details, do be a saint.
Do it for old Patch's botique of wonders, at least." (chuckles)

[Talk] "Well? Happen to recall anything important?
About where that old rat scurried off to." (chuckles)

[Tell him he went to Irithyll] "What? Gone all the way to Irithyll, has he?
Well, there can't be much left of that frozen sprawl.
The old rat, he's gone off the deep end this time..."

[Tell him he went to Lothric] "Hmph. Off to Lothric, the castle of no return...
That old thief's lost it if he thinks he has a chance in there.
It's not like he's new to this game, what's gotten into him?"

[Talk] "That old thief, he's really lost it this time..."

Returning from Lothric

"Well, look at you. The luckiest man/lass in the world.
I just got hold of some truly fine treasure. And for you, I'll practically give it away."

[Leave after purchasing something] "What do you say? Brilliant stuff, eh?
I won't ask for thanks, but I certainly deserve it."

[Leave without purchasing something (first time after returning from Lothric only)] "What, thats the best you can do? Bloody hell!  Yeah, keep those purse strings nice and tight, friend! (mutters) So tight they choke you!"

[Purchasing Hidden Blessing at any point after returning from Lothric] "What do you say? Brilliant stuff, eh?
I won't ask for thanks, but I certainly deserve it."

Attacking him

"What's happened, friend?"
"Stop this! Stop this at once!"

"Oi, calm down, please!"
"*****, you heartless, good-for-nothing oaf!"

"Gods' spit, I knew something was wrong! Well, now it's my turn. I'm Unbreakable Patches, nobody can crack me!
Rot in Hell!"

(You die) "Close call, blimey..."
(You die) "Caugh 'em up, every last one of 'em." "Confess your sins."

(He dies) "Why me? Why me?!" "What did I ever do anyway!?"

 

Trivia

  • The name "Unbreakable Patches" references his reoccurring appearance in every Miyazaki directed Souls game (Bloodborne included.) In every instance Patches tricks the player into an unfortunate situation only to beg for forgiveness when you outsmart him. Previous names included "Patches the Hyena," "Trusty Patches," and "Patches the Spider."
  • When Patches takes residence in the Firelink Shrine he mentions that Greirat did him a good turn in Lothric Dungeon.
  • Patches will not sell the 'Horsehoof Ring' unless you have met the requirements and spoken to him at least once
  • Although Patches' line when he traps you in the Cathedral is listed as differing based on your gender (referring to the player either as a greedy guts or insatiable wench), and the subtitles are for the dialogue reflective of that gender, Patches will refer to you as a Greedy Guts in the vocal line regardless.

      Patches never showed up for me. I talked to siegward in the well, I opened the door, I reloaded three times, no patches, So I just said screw it and lit rosarias bonfire. Does this lock me out of siegward's and patches' quest?

      • Anonymous

        After he lowered the bridge and left me to break a giant's kneecaps, I was going to kill him but then I needed the armor. When he locked me in the tower, then I said "that's it" and killed him.

        • Anonymous

          im so frustrated, because of my chronic addiction with looking at the side stuff first, i lit the rosaria bonfire and now i missed out on something that seems really cool

            So (spoilers ahead for those who havent beaten the ringed city)





            I killed Patches in the cathedral then before finishing his questline he has somehow come back to life just to kick me and get me killed by a mimic (nice ring tho)

            • Anonymous

              Is it just better to kill him in the cathedral? I don’t see anything important about his quest that is good…

              • Anonymous

                He lowered the bridge in the cathedral and I let him live.
                Then he kicked me in Ringed City, so I went back to the Cathedral, got rid of my weapon and shield and punched him to death :D

                  That is incorrect, If you have already killed the 2 giants, Patches still shows up (as a vendor) on the other side of the walkway by Rosaria's bedchamber. He moves to Firelink shrine after he locks you in the tower.

                  • Anonymous

                    Absolutely insane how inaccurate this wiki can be sometimes: Patches DOES show up on the other side of the cathedral bridge even if you kill both giants. And he still locks you up in the tower.

                      I killed Patches on the spot after he apologized to me way up there by the third lever (i bought the DS1 Thief set before attacking though.
                      So he dropped not only the ring, the winged spear, his ashes and 2000 souls, but the entire catarina set + pierce shield anyways.

                        2 times out of 2 where I killed the giants before going up there, he DID show up on the other side of the walkway.

                          Just a note, he won't spawn in the Cathedral if you've been through the rafters, you don't even have to descend to the Rosaria area. I went through there after finding it on NG+, not knowing you could use it to get to Rosaria, then I couldn't find him where he spawned last time. I just went through, lit the bonfire, and he showed up in the belltower at Firelink. If you did the same, just hit the Rosaria bonfire and he'll show up at Firelink like normal.

                            Killed both giants, opened the doors and he was still there on both sides. Don’t know why it says he won’t spawn.

                              I met Patches at the Cathedral, he lowered the bridge with me, then I proceeded to kill deacons. Went back up to him and he wasn't there. Bought tower key from hand maid and went up the elevator and he didn't show up either. Where do I find him now? I still do not have Siegward's armor

                                I don't know when they patched it, but just opening the front doors to the cathedral will spawn Patches without having to reload. As you open the door you can hear him raising the bridge if you listen carefully. I'm glad they changed this, because the old way was extremely unintuitive. It does break the logic of you 'letting him into the cathedral' with the doors, but at least it gives new players a chance to find him in a more natural way.

                                    This is a lie; I had beaten every boss in the game, I told him about Greirat being in Lothric Castle, I travelled from Firelink to Sister Friede’s boss room & back, and he still came back safe & sound.

                                      You can have patches return to the shrine after he goes off to find greiat, all you have to do is get summoned into another players world n kill a boss there n he'll spawn back

                                        should add this, if you kill greirat after having patches in yourt shire, but BEFORE sending him to irrithyl, he will become hostile and say "ill send you to hell!"

                                          This fact needs to be changed: He WILL show up on the other side of the rafters, even if the giants are dead. He will only go to Firelink AFTER you meet him on the other side.
                                          This is to make sure you you follow along with Siegwards quest while he's in the well (so you can buy the armor and save him).

I just killed both giants, opened doors, talked to onion patches, got dropped and he commented on missing giants, proceeded to rafters for the first time, and he WAS waiting on balcony selling stuff. I had not yet talked to onion bro in the well, but I did die b4 getting to rafters. Thralls.. **** em

                                                                  • Anonymous

I like the patches character.. his pettiness and their mentality kept him from hollowing (though he got close in ringed city) as all the others hollowed for various reasons.. 10 outta 10 would let patches troll me again

                                                                    • Anonymous

I proceeded, killed the deacons, went to irithyll, sent Greirat to the second plunder and the bald bastard is still near rosaria!! He should be at firelink by now .. please help!

                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                          • Anonymous

Then he didnt appear at the firelink shrine like it said he would.. he appeared next to rosarias chamber near the lever. I didnt light the bonfire before to make this happen and now he wont go to firelink. Cool. Jist purchase and sell options. Hate how buggy this **** is

                                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                                      I've killed the Deacons and Abyss Watchers in my game and I was still able to trigger his initial appearance in the Cathedral.

                                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                                        I made the same mistake multiple times given how easy they are to handle but that is a clear reason why he won't spawn even after hitting all the triggers.

                                                                                        He WILL spawn if you hit the triggers and are alive because he's a piece of **** that wants you dead for your stuff. The giants give him an edge. Killing the Giants AFTER he spawns, triggers different dialogue.

                                                                                        So, if you do kill him, you HAVE to use the alternate trigger in the tower at Firelink Shrine by taking the Elavator up and then back down. This will progress his quest and allow you to head back to the cathedral giving Siegward his armor as well as get the Prostration Gesture if you do NOT forgive him.

                                                                                        • I defeated the fire demon together with Siegward. Then I slayed the deacons of the deep without talking to Siegward in the well, meeting patches or finding Rosaria's bedchamber. When I, much later, talked to Patches after being locked in the Tower, he was selling the Catarina armour even though I never talked to Siegward in the well.

                                                                                          • Anonymous

I know you get the armour if you kill him in the Cathedral while he's wearing it, but what about when he doesn't wear it? I'm considering trying it out myself but I don't feel like putting Siegward's questline at risk.

But for some reason I never got the armor. Is this a bug? Or have I doomed Siegward to forever lie at the bottom of that well? If the latter is true, then I shall be a very sad human.

I just did this AGAIN on another playthrough. I have not talked to him on the other side of the bridge but he did lower me down to the giants, and he just locked me in the tower at firelink. Can we take down this false info yet?

He has been doing this***** since Dark Souls 1, but he crossed the line with Onionbro in dark souls 3. Always send him for Greirat and kill him. Sure he maybe a vendor but is it worth what he has done to us? And when we kill him he would say "Why me? Why me?!. What did I ever do to you?" as if he didn't kicked us to the tomb of the giant, he tricked us in the Cathedral of the deep, he locked us up and he kicked us in the ringed city. The fact that he survived to the end of the world is a shame. To me he is nothing more than a coward who loves bringing misery.

I proceeded over the bridge only to be "fooled" by Patches. He was shocked that the giants were gone and so on. I tried to make him spawn at the Tower at Firelink Shrine, but he just wouldn't show up. So I went back to the Cathedral and took the rafters path, dropped down and there he was. So either my game experienced some weird bug or your information is wrong.

He is describes as someone who looks like an egyptian pharaoh (patches looks egyptian if u think about it) and he is also called “the crawling chaos” get it like a spider
