Where to find Gowry's shack
Just south of Sellia, the Town of Sorcery, is Caelid, where you may find Gowry's Shack. The road from the northeast corner of Limgrave is the most straightforward route to take if you haven't already explored this area. Simply ignore everything and continue running while collecting the Sites of Grace.
Continue along the path to the north and walk through the huge gate once you've arrived at the Southern Aeonia Swamp Bank Site of Grace. Just be careful of the troll who is hurling rocks from the cliff above. The hut off the road to your right should be visible on the opposite side. When you speak with Gowry inside the wooden hut, he will explain that in order to heal a female, you must first locate the Unalloyed Gold Needle.Now done first step Elden Ring millicent quest.
UNALLOYED GOLD NEEDLE
How to get the unalloyed gold needle
Commander O'Neil, a boss in the neighboring Aeonia Swamp, drops this item. He's in the circle of rot just east of Gowry's Shack, but if he gives you trouble, it's worth taking the Inner Aeonia Site of Grace right away to the north of this spot so you spawn next to the boss arena.
Although Commander O'Neil isn't extremely tough, he can summon assistance, which can make the battle more irksome. Additionally, you can battle him while riding Torrent, which is advantageous. Engage the boss and direct him back into the Inner Aeonia Site of Grace if you are having trouble defeating him. You can kite him into the Scarlot Rot geysers nearby to swiftly reduce his health because they do a respectable amount of damage to him.
Once you obtain the Unalloyed Gold Needle, return to Gowry's Shack and give it to the owner. Gowry will offer you Sellia's Secret in exchange right away, but in order to move on with the quest, you must either fast travel away from him or restart the game. Gowry will give you the repaired needle when you return.
CHURCH OF THE PLAGUE
Elden Ring Millicent location: Church of the Plague
The Church of the Plague, which is close to Gowry's Shack to the east but perched atop a cliff, is where you should next go.
Gowry revealed the Sellia secret to you when you handed him the Unalloyed Gold Needle in the previous phase, allowing you to access the road from this side. You can either use Torrent to dash down to the area from the Bestial Sanctum in the north or you can go ahead and light the beacons in the village to obtain entry. As soon as you obtain your first Deathroot(opens in new tab), D in Roundtable Hold informs you that there is a waygate in Limgrave close to the Third Church of Marika through which you can enter the sanctum.
Millicent is found in the ruins of the Church of the Plague. then stop for a rest at the close-by Site of Grace. Hand over the needle. She won't give you the Prosthesis-Wearer Heirloom talisman until you speak to her once more.
You must now go back to Gowry's Shack. Speak with Gowry, then swiftly move to the closest Site of Grace and return to his cabin. Alternatively, just restart the game. Now Millicent ought to be present. Talk to her and use all of your available words.
Elden Ring Valkyrie's prosthesis location
Not until you arrive at Altus Plateau, just after the Grand Lift of Dectus(opens in new tab), in the northeastern region of Liurnia, will you run into Millicent again. She's right near the Erdtree Gazing Hill Site of Grace, but you can't help her with her mission until you get the Valkyrie's Prosthesis from a chest in the Shaded Castle region of the northern Altus Plateau.
The Valkyrie's Prosthesis can be found in the room indicated on the map above, but to get there, you'll need to fight or flee from a Cleanrot Knight.
Once you have the Valkyrie's Prosthesis, go back to Altus Plateau and give Millicent the item. You must now converse with her incessantly until you run out of topics to discuss.
Defeat the Godskin Apostle at Windmill Village
You must now proceed to Windmill Village in the Altus Plateau's north. The Godskin Apostle boss may be found at the top of the slender piece of land to the east after you've activated the Windmill Village Site of Grace. It is located close to a windmill. If you've already given Millicent the Valkyrie's Prosthesis, which you should have done if you're following this method, she will be able to be summoned as an NPC to assist you.
You should be ready to dodge a lot because this boss is quite difficult. His composure appears to be compromised by multiple hits from magic damage, and he exhibits considerable bleeding susceptibility. It's best to play it safe and be prepared to dodge until you understand his attack patterns and the cues for his more severe assaults, as is the case with most bosses.
After you've defeated the boss, activate the Windmill Heights Site of Grace. You can discover Millicent standing close by if you take a break or quickly travel nearby and back. Continue to exhaust her conversation.
MOUNTAINTOP OF THE GIANTS
Talk to Millicent at Mountaintop of the Giants
Before you arrive in the Mountaintop of the Giants region northeast of Leyndell, Royal Capital, you won't see Millicent again (you need to defeat the boss there to access it). She is at the Ancient Snow Valley Ruins Site of Grace, southeast of Stargazer's Ruins and south of Castle Sol.
She will tell you that you can call her in combat if you speak to her here. Additionally, she discusses locating Malenia and the Haligtree Secret Medallion, which opens a locked door in the Grand Lift of Rold. Check out our Haligtree Medallion guide for information on how to enter the Miquella's Haligtree endgame section (opens in new tab).
You can now visit Gowry's Shack in Caelid and have a conversation with him about Millicent. Although none of what he has to say is necessary to complete the questline, he does have quite a bit to say.
ELPHAEL, BRACE OF THE HALIGTREE
Meet Millicent at Elphael, Brace of the Haligtree
Once you obtain access to Miquella's Haligtree, you must cautiously descend its branches while fending off enormous ants and unfortunate Albinaurics. For melee characters, it can be a challenging region; I'd advise carrying a ranged attack to prevent rolling down the tree and dying.
You'll eventually begin to collide with structures close to the tree trunk. Once you encounter the boss, Loretta, Knight of the Haligtree, continue moving forward while navigating the adversaries. After you have defeated her, proceed into Elphael, Brace of the Haligtree.
Continue until you reach the Site of Grace's Prayer Room. Locate Millicent in the area, talk to her, and she will discuss Malenia.
ULCERATED TREE SPIRIT
Defeat the Ulcerated Tree Spirit mini-boss
Pass through Elphael, Brace of the Haligtree, and continue on. As you move deeper into the region, there are a ton of enemies to defeat. Following a number of disgusting Scarlet Rot pools, go on after arriving at the Elphael Inner Wall Site of Grace until you reach the Drainage Channel Site of Grace.
More Scarlet Rot may be found past the Drainage Channel, but this time an Ulcerated Tree Spirit is hiding in one that you must descend to. Even though it's disgusting, you must slay this Ulcerated Tree Spirit in order to further Millicent's mission.
Millicent's Prosthesis or Miquella's needle choice
Return to the Drainage Channel Site of Grace after you've vanquished the mini-boss. You'll discover two summon signs in the boss area where you can make a decision similar to the one in the Sellen quest (opens in new tab). You will be called to Millicent to assist her in driving back NPC invaders when you see the yellow summon symbol. You can invade and murder her if you see the red summons indication.
If you choose the red summons indication, Millicent will be your opponent. The quest will be complete too soon if you defeat her, and you'll get Millicent's prosthesis (opens in new tab). You won't be able to move forward past this point if you do this.
You will receive the Rotten Winged Sword Insignia(opens in new tab), a talisman that dramatically increases attack power with future hits, if you follow the yellow summon sign and assist her in killing the NPCs.After that, you can either reload the game to find Millicent close to the location of the summoning signals or have a nap at the Drainage Channel Site of Grace once more. Talk to her, take a break or reload, and when you go back, you'll discover her dead body. Her Unalloyed Gold Needle item may be looted for, and you can use it to get Miquella's Needle.
Elden Ring Miquella's needle: How to get it
After selecting the yellow summon sign in the step above to get the Unalloyed Gold Needle, you must advance into the Ephael, Brace of the Haligtree region.And defeat the optional Shardbearer, Malenia. After you've fought her, go back to the boss room to find Malenia's scarlet bloom, reload the location, and use the Unalloyed Gold Needle to obtain Miquella's Needle.
If you chose to go that route, Miquella's Needle has the unusual power to reverse the Flame of Frenzy ending. In case you forgot, that is down under Leyndell, Royal Capital, past Mohg's boss room, through a labyrinth of tunnels. You must remove your armor in order to enter a large door inside. When you do, the Flame of Frenzy will mark you and your eyes will turn yellow.
If you carry on and don't finish Millicent's questline, you will be compelled to accept this ending. But if you support her in her mission, you can put an end to the Flame of Frenzy.
Tame the flame of frenzy with Miquella's needle
You must enter the boss room for Dragonlord Placidusax with Miquella's Needle to unlock the lock on your character for the Flame of Frenzy ending (opens in new tab).
You can only fully access Farum Azula, home of the Dragonlord, after dealing with the Forge of the Giants in the Mountaintops of the Giants. Once there, proceed normally until you reach the Site of Grace beside the Great Bridge. After that, proceed through the beastmen, down the nearby elevator, down the stairs, and outside. Walk directly outside as if you were walking off the map, and when you glance down, you will see a path of rocks. As soon as you land, run in the direction of the tornado until you come across a piece of the building. To start a cinematic that sends you to the boss room, stand on the area of it that is empty and interact with it.
To tame the Flame of Frenzy in the boss area, equip Miquella's Needle or use it in your menu and choose yes.You can now continue playing the game normally without being compelled to accept that resolution since Melina has been saved.
