Laurentius of the Great Swamp
Laurentius of the Great Swamp


The Depths
Located in a room near the second Butcher. After taking care of the first Butcher, go to the stairs that lead to waist deep water. You should see a part of the wall crumbled down, which you can climb up. Laurentius is located in a room to the left. He is trapped inside a barrel. Roll into the barrels to safely destroy them and release him.

Firelink Shrine
After you rescued him, he'll sit on the ground in front of the pool/Frampt's room.

If you talk to him while having a Pyromancy unique to Quelaana (e.g. Great Combustion, Fire Whip, etc.) or gotten through Chaos Servant covenant (i.e. Great Chaos Fireball and Chaos Storm), he'll ask you how you got it. If you answer "Yes," he will leave the Firelink Shrine and can be found hollowed in front of the lower Blighttown bonfire, near the two Giant Mosquitoes.

Note: Be aware before you answer "Yes". You will lose the ability to purchase Iron Flesh and Flash Sweat as neither Eingyi nor Quelaana sells you these Pyromancies. However, you may simply answer "No" to his question and he will not leave Firelink Shrine and will still sell you pyromancies.


In order use his services, the answer to his first question ("… Ah, unless you find the magics unsavoury?") should be "No". If you answered "Yes" instead, the answer to his second question ("Oh, and er…if by chance you've had a change of heart, …") should be "Yes".

  • If you accidentally make Laurentius hostile by hitting him with a weapon while trying to free him from the barrel, as long as you do not kill him you can still get him to go to the Firelink Shrine. Go to Oswald of Carim and request Absolution. After paying Oswald's fee Laurentius will appear at Firelink Shrine.
