A self-proclaimed "treasure hunter" who roams around Drangleic searching for valuable loot. With an unknown motive behind him, it is uncertain if he is friend or foe.
Forest of Fallen Giants
Pate can be found sitting next to a gate that locks when passing through it. He will mention to you that he was with another traveler previously who became locked in a similar contraption. He will warn you of the danger and will continue to tell you that he still has the ring from the unfortunate traveler who became trapped. After escaping from the trap or coming back after dying, talk to Pate again. When you exhaust his dialogue, he will give you the White Sign Soapstone.
From the second bonfire, proceed upstairs and then up the ladder. Head right towards the room with the fan blade and Desert Sorceresses on the other side, then drop down, and look for a room off that hallway with lots of vases. He will be leaning on the wall in this room below the stairs.
The treasure he seeks can be reached by taking a right when exiting his room, then a right at the hallway intersection. Look for a destructible railing on your right, break it and then drop down. Claim the treasure chest which contains Great Heavy Soul Arrow, and then you can open the door from this ledge back into Pate's room, which was previously locked from the other side. He will congratulate you, then mention that someone is apparently looking to end his life.
Brightstone Cove Tseldora
Right before the Chapel Threshold bonfire to your left, there is a cliffside you can descend off of to land infront of a house below. You will find Pate and Creighton the Wanderer fighting inside. The outcome of this depends on who you decide to assist. If you kill Pate, he will drop Pate's Spear and the Ring of Thorns.
You need to actively do most of the damage. Waiting for one of them to die (or doing too little damage) results in no reward apart from what you loot from the deceased.
Whichever one you aid will give you the Tseldora Den Key, which opens a locked door nearby with two chests inside containing ten Rusted Coins and the Engraved Gauntlets. The left chest containing coins is trapped. After the trap sets off, you will hear Pate's or Creighton's voice mocking you, depending on who survived.
Pate's summon sign may persist after the last giant has been killed (ps3 sotfs currently testing if getting him killed after the fight loses you his ring and spear)
