Boc in Elden Ring

Boc is one of the many NPCs with an elaborate questline in Elden Ring. So here’s how you can complete his questline in the game.

Boc is a demi-human in Elden Ring with a knack for tailoring. Whenever you come across this NPC in the game, you can get him to alter certain garments, provided you’ve progressed enough in the quest line.

Boc’s questline is one of the few that has a happy ending associated with it, but other than that, the missions aren’t rewarding enough.

So here’s how you can complete Boc’s questline in Elden Ring.

Here are the steps that you need to finish to complete Boc’s questline in Elden Ring:

  1. When you get to the Agheel Lake North Site of Grace, you’ll come across a talking tree. Hit it with your weapon to release Boc, who will reward you with mushrooms for freeing him.
  2. Head to the Coastal Cave dungeon Site of Grace and talk to Boc.
  3. Head inside the Costal Cave dungeon and defeat the Demi-Human Chiefs to retrieve the Sewing Needle and Tailoring supplies, and then give these to Boc.
  4. Next, meet Boc at the Lake-Facing Cliffs Site of Grace.
  5. Head to the Church of Vows and take the Golden Sewing Needle from a chest inside.
  6. Meet Boc at East Raya Lucaria Gate Site of Grace/ Altus Highway Junction Site of Grace/ East Capital Rampart Site of Grace depending upon how where you’ve rested before.
  7. From here, you can perform one of three actions:
    • You can tell Boc “you’re beautiful” after performing the You’re Beautiful Prattling Pate. From this point onwards, you will be able to use his altering services for free for the rest of the game.
    • Give him a Larval Tear. He’ll take the tear and head to Rennala, and be born as a human, but he’ll die soon.
    • You can do nothing, which will move him to the Raya Lucaria Grand Library Site of Grace.

If you want to keep Boc the Seamster alive in Elden Ring, do not give him a Larval Tear. If you do so, you will not be able to interact with him once he turns human. Whenever you rest after this, Boc will die.

Instead, take the “You’re Beautiful” Prattling Pate that you find at the Hermit Village in Mount Gelmir and place it in front of him. After you do that, discuss it with him, and he’ll be at your service forever. This is the only way in which you can save Boc the Seamster in Elden Ring.
