Where to find Stomund, Captain of the Fidelis in Lords of the Fallen

Stomund, Captain of the Fidelis can initially be found at Skyrest Bridge, near the Vestige of Ethryg.

  • This NPC moves toward the end of the Manse of the Hallowed Brothers, in a small garden before you formally enter the Abbey of the Hallowed Sisters, at the foot of the stairs.
  • This NPC moves to the inner courtyard in the Abbey of the Hallowed Sisters, where his location is hidden behind a breakable barrel. More detailed guide below.
  • This NPC moves to the stairway as you enter the Monastery in The Empyrean. Instead of Stomund, you will find his lifeless body impaled on the restored banner (if you give the 2 items he requested. Details can be found in the guide here).

NOTE: As soon as you find the Tattered Banner, return immediately to Stomund. We have reports indicating that progressing further could fail his quest.

Lords of the Fallen Stomund, Captain of the Fidelis Full Questline Walkthrough

You will find Stomund, Captain of the Fidelis standing in an archway next to a human-sized bell. He will first recognize the lamp you carry and address you as the "lampbearer" before he introduces himself. He goes on to tell you that the Umbral Lamp was originally intended for him, but the Exactors have found a new instrument, which is the Deathless One. Stomund is a leader among a group of men and women who have taken arms up against the corrupted sentinels, while he is wary of you at first, he indicates the possibility that your aims may align in the near future, or perhaps not.

After exhausting his dialogues, you can now interact with him again to view all his items for sale.

 

A Captain's Journey

After some time, we aren't exactly sure what triggered the movement of Stomund, Captain of the Fidelis, but he left his station in Skyrest Bridge a little bit after we explored parts of Upper Calrath, and after defeating The Spurned Progeny. When we returned to Skyrest Bridge, instead of Stomund standing next to the doorway, we found a note had been left for the Deathless One.

1 stomund npcs quest guides lords of the fallen wiki guide

This note is addressed to the Deathless One indicating that he is moving to a "bell door in Pilgrim's Perch." Take note that Stomund will also leave additional items like Map of Belled Rise and Pilgrim's Perch Key if not previously bought. Then, if you talk to Eustace and Nathaniel, the members of the Fidelis in Skyrest Bridge, they'll tell you that he's left for the Manse.

Your next encounter with Stomund, Captain of the Fidelis will take place in the Manse of the Hallowed Brothers before you formally enter the Abbey. He is seen at the bottom of the steps that will lead into the Abbey of the Hallowed Sisters from a small garden. This area is unmissable and is part of the main path of the questline so just keep going until you reach this area.

He tells you that he is hesitating to trespass because of the orders of the old world, however, he shares with you that the Immaculate Lady awaits him, forcing him to do so. He goes on to tell you that he needs to speak with Judge Cleric and seeks an audience with her so she will know what has become of the Hallowed Sentinels.

After exhausting his dialogues, check the additional items now available in his Merchant inventory. Additionally. you will need two things in your upcoming task for Stomund's quest:

  • Damaged Standard - Once you reach the end of the Manse of the Hallowed Brothers, go to the courtyard and proceed to the area marked with progression, then jump down the archway to the right. You will see another stairs at the edge with a blocked door nearby. You can access this room by taking out your lamp and peering into the Umbral realm. You will find an elevator inside, then use it to reach the underground cellar. Stay on the path and unlock the gate at the end to retrieve the Damaged Standard from the ankle-deep flood in the cellar.

  • Tattered Banner - From the Main Altar in the abbey (this is the same arena as Rapturous Huntress of the Dusk where you will interact with the Rune of Adyr). While facing the altar, go to the left side and go up by using 2 flights of stairs and head outside to the courtyard. You will find yourself in a large open area and a gazebo blocked by a gate in the distance. Peer into the Umbral Realm to bypass the gate and take the Saintly Quintessence by soulflaying the Umbral Tumor. Picking up this item will trigger an enemy to spawn behind you which will drop the Tattered Banner upon defeat.

Once you get inside the Abbey of the Hallowed Sisters, you will encounter Stomund once again after you unlock the gates. He is located in the garden surrounded by statues and trees at the bottom of the steps. You will see him there as soon as you enter. Then, he will move further again into the Abbey of the Hallowed Sisters.

 

Stomund's Location in the Abbey of the Hallowed Sisters

From the Vestige of Rosamund, enter the archway in front of the Vestige. This path is filled with enemies waiting in every section so defeat them carefully. Continue to follow the main path and go up the stairs to take you further into the Abbey. There is an Umbral Tumor blocking the way forward so to bypass this, cross over the Umbral Realm and Soulflay it to reveal the tunnel behind it that will take you to the inner area of the Abbey.

Follow the stairs and go up where you will be fighting more enemies. At this point, you will find an Emergence Effigy at the foot of the stairs. Return to the Axiom Realm and head up the stairs again. Continue making your way to the top where you will be fighting an Ardent Penitent.

After that, take two flights of stairs to the right and follow this path. Make a left until you reach the inner courtyard where enemies are surrounding the tree in the center. Look for the stairs on the left corner while facing the tree and head up the stairs once again. As soon as you reach the second floor, destroy the barrels and crates on your right to reveal the path to Stomund. He is standing in the hallway next to more barrels and crates.

When you meet him, he will ask you to bring 2 pieces of an ancient banner. The Damaged Standard is previously found  inside a locked cell in the underground cellar of the Manse (refer above), while the Tattered Banner is a drop from the Abbess that attacks the player on the second-floor balcony in the Abbey a little later after this encounter (see detailed guide above as well). There's a gazebo past the gate, you can cross this gate by taking out your Umral Lamp and facing it going in the direction of the gazebo. Then, retrieve the Saintly Quintessence to prompt an enemy to spawn, which will drop the Tattered Banner.

When you get the two items, bring them back to Stomund immediately. Be careful not to progress forward because we have reports that progressing further can fail his quest. As soon as you find him, make sure to check his Merchant Inventory as well as this will be your last encounter with him. After a while, once you reach The Empyrean, Stomund will disappear from your world, and his lifeless body will be found on the steps to the Monastery in The Empyrean, impaled upon the restored Banner of Our Immaculate Lady

You can obtain Stomund's Armour, Stomund's Flail, and Stomund's Shield after completing the Abbey of the Hallowed Sisters. As you move towards The Empyrean, follow the main path from the Vestige of Iorelo the Cursed Knight and walk up the stairway. You will find his body together with the restored banner on the right side of the landing.

Picking up his items will mark A Captain's Journey quest as completed and you will gain the trophy: Faithful.

      The moment I opened the doors to Empyrean, without giving him the second part of that old tattered staff, he started to think that it was a dumb idea all along, so he just dropped it and went away to a far, far place. He has now a waifu and lives a simple, but happy life in a small hut in the sunny fields

        Dude hears someone else got volunteered for the cursed lämp duty and immediately rushes off to the nearest abbey full of nuns without even telling his men

          One of the worst quests in the game. Find the item he needs, take two steps forward without returning to him, he disappears. Honestly, who made this quest? Never let them near game design again.

          • Anonymous

            So I failed this guy's quest because the last Abbess near the Saintly Quintessence didn't spawn in when I went there so I never got the tattered banner to drop, so I ended up going and progressing thinking the next banner is further onwards in the Empyrean. Ended up coming here to figure out where and it turns out I missed it and failed his quest

            What's the point of carrying on one of the most irritating features from Dark Souls that almost nobody truly enjoys. Untracked quests?.

              Can someone just trade his items with me for a second? I just need them for the trophy :p PSN: templarious001

                Can we stop pretending this is Dark Souls to the Devs?? Its not cute making failable quests based upon progress. When you have a refined staff to create quality environments, and finish the game, then get cute. But not doing your jobs well, then trying to copy a mechanic from Dark Souls…. Shows us all you cant compete with fromsoft. Ever.

                  Confirmed. If you open the door leading to the Empyrean without giving him the 2nd part of the banner. He will leave your world forever.

                  Thankfully, all of his loots (except the banner, obviously) are droppable if you happen to fail his quest.

                    Stomunde will disappear if you don't give him the 2nd banner prior to opening the doors in front of the Vestige of Iorelo the Cursed Night (The Empyrean).

                    You can take the lift up and activate this vestige. Just don't open the doors. Confirmed this because I backed up my save before opening the doors.

                      Interestingly, on my first playthrough I bought the key from him (9500 vigor that time) very early in the game because I suspected the doors were optional areas with powerful stuff. He leaved Skyrest right after and I hadn't even reached the swamp. Now on my 2nd playthrough, I just defeated the lava giant and he's still in skyrest.

                        What's the lore implication of his death location? Did he impale himself? Or did a Hallowed Sentinel or the Judge Cleric herself do it to him?

                        • Anonymous

                          I gave him both items the second I got them and he was grateful etc etc I followed the guide of how to do it properly so I wouldn't mess it up.. His body isn't on the stairs though? I looked all up and down in that area. So weird.

                              If you go up the lift and trigger the empyrean vestige without giving him the banner, its game over for him, you need to get the banners and take them back straight away, the difference between success and failure is literally a single checkpoint forward from where you pick up the tattered banner.

                                Discovered with 100% certainty what causes Stomund to move. After opening the doors to Upper Calrath from the elevator from the Cistern is his trigger to leave Skyrest.

                                  Think i finally know when this NPC leaves the skyrest cause i just did everything i could along with visiting 3rd beacon and now FINALLY oh finally it's a time, he is no longer in skyrest, he left! I got a key! FINALLY! I'm certain it was bc of 3rd beacon cause i visited skyrest 2 many times just to check on this damn NPC.

                                    i don't want to farm 18 000 for a key, thats BS (yes they increased the price lately) ehhhhh

                                        This game has stupid easy breakable quests even worse than dark souls 1 ones if not following a guide. From Software had improved their quests on each subsequent souls. Most Elden Ring quests you can't fail even if you start them when next to the final boss. I hope they change this quest to be less missable.

                                          if you're on this page, it's probably too late for you too, but just in case it isn't, make sure that as soon as you get the tattered banner to IMMEDIATELY go back and give it to him. by the time I got to the gates of The Empyrean, he was already gone. no boss kills, no vestiges. it doesn't seem anyone knows where the cutoff is exactly, but at some point before The Empyrean, he disappears and you fail his quest.

                                              Then when I restarted my game he was gone.

I then proceeded directly to the tattered banner location and haven’t progressed further than the tattered banner gazebo. When I soul flayed the saintly quintessence from the gazebo the abbes that should have spawned never did. Now I can’t get the tattered standard cause she never spawned. The guy is still next to tree saying to find the second part of the standard and bring it to him. What is going on?

Make sure you go back to him as soon as you get the items, because its barely 5-10 minutes of gameplay after you do and youll break the entire quest.
