Elden Ring Millicent is an NPC in the game with an associated questline that leads to the collection of many useful items. To complete the Millicent Elden Ring quest, you must play through a significant portion of the game’s storyline. When you complete Millicent’s questline, you will receive the Rotten Winged Sword Insignia and Millicent’s Prosthesis, two of the most powerful talismans of the title. If you obtain and use these valuable items, you can increase the damage done with specific close-range weapons. This task covers a lot of ground due to its bigger length, so you will have to tackle it in chunks rather than all at once.
Elden Ring storyline is packed with many quests, and the players can find most of them difficult to complete. It’s because they are often purposefully challenging to finish, with obtuse instructions and unexpected twists. Out of all these quests, one of them is Millicent’s, which we are going to explain below in this guide. Most of you can find this task very tough to complete owing to the harsh environment of Caleid as this takes place in this area. However, we will explain everything about Millicent Elden Ring questline, tell where to find this NPC, and finish this objective from beginning to end.
Where to Find Millicent in Elden Ring
Millicent quest in Elden Ring involves the Caelid area of Lands Between, which you need to visit. Follow the below guidelines, which tell where you need to go and what you should do at this location:
Talk With Gowry
The first step to completing this quest is to talk with Gowry in Gowry’s Shack. You can find this place between Sellia Gateway and Sellia, Town of Sorcery in Caelid. For those who will visit this place for the first time and don’t know about it, the quickest route would be to take the roadway that begins at the far northeast of Limgrave. Keep going on this path to reach Sites of Grace. Get past the big gate after you’ve reached the Southern Aeonia Swamp Bank and move north on the road. You should be wary of the troll tossing boulders down from the hills. Upon reaching the other end, look to your right to find the small hut.
Go inside this wooden hut, and you will find Gowry inside. He’ll let you know what happened with Millicent and her Scarlet Rot when you talk with him. Well above Gowry’s wooden cottage, on the cliffside, is the Church of the Plague, where he will beg you to help a sick girl who has been taken hostage. You need to obtain the Unalloyed Gold Needle from Commander O’Neil because this is the only way to save her life.
Get Unalloyed Gold Needle from Commander O’Neil
Aeonia, the rot marsh, is where you will find the Unalloyed Gold Needle. Commander O’Neil, the boss, can be found in a vast root maze. The battle is not that challenging, and if you employ a Spirit Ash to divert the Commander’s accomplices, you can easily take him out. After you defeat the boss, you will receive the Unalloyed Gold Needle alongside some of its specific items and weapons.
Once you obtain the Unalloyed Gold Needle, you have to return to Gowry’s Shack, talk again with Gowry, and give the needle to him. Gowry will instantly provide you with Sellia’s Secret in exchange. However, you’ll have to quickly travel to the nearest Site of Grace, reload the game and then reach him again. After that, he will present the repaired needle to you and tell you a bit of Sellia’s backstory, the Town of Sorcery. Proceed to the Church of the Plague to meet Millicent and start her questline.
Millicent Elden Ring Location: At Church of the Plague
For now, visit the Church of the Plague, located on the clifftop directly east of Gowry’s Shack. In the previous phase, you offered Gowry the Unalloyed Gold Needle, and in exchange, he revealed the Sellian secret that grants you entrance to the route. Limgrave’s Third Church of Marika, located at the city’s main gate, provides entry to the inner sanctuary.
You’ll come across a church protected by two Kindred of Rot if you continue along the path to the cemetery. If you want to avoid having these foes end up killing Millicent while talking to her in the chapel, you should eliminate them. You’ll find Millicent slumped up by the front wall as you enter the church. That is where you’ll need to light the Site of Grace. When you deliver her the Unalloyed Gold Needle, she will receive it and stop responding instantly. Upon reloading the scene, she will be lying exactly where she was before.
By communicating with her, she will tell you about its journey to another location, and when you reload the game after that, you will find that she’s already reached the next position. When you meet Millicent at this new spot, she will also hand over the Prosthesis-Wearing Heirloom talisman as a mark of her appreciation. Go back to Gowry’s hut, and you will find her waiting for you. But this time, you will not see Gowry on the spot. She claimed she went there because of her longing to return to a place she knew well. But, she would declare that Gowry’s Shack is a distraction from her quest and then depart immediately.
Meet Her Again at Altus Plateau
In the northern part of the Altus Plateau, you will find Millicent once again close to the Erdtree-Gazing Hill Site of Grace. You can spot her by going to Site of Grace’s north, she will be lying beside the cliff next to the rocks. If you talk to her, you’ll learn that she is following in Malenia’s way and that she thinks Malenia might be somewhere at the northern end of the Lands Between. When the chat is finished, you need to collect the Valkyrie’s Prosthesis from the Shaded Castle, located in the Altus Plateau northern part. This item is a must to obtain because you can’t make your way further into the Elden Ring Millicent questline until you get it and give it to her.
Get the Valkyrie’s Prosthesis from the Shaded Castle
Head over to the Shaded Castle, which is situated towards the north between Mt. Gelmir and Altus Plateau. Your aim is to reach a tiny compartment defended by a Cleanrot Knight. Get inside that room where you will find Valkyrie’s Prosthesis. This item is your key to moving the conversation with Millicent forward to the next stage on Altus Plateau. Get back to Millicent at the Erdtree-Gazing Hill and hand the Prosthesis over to her. She will now express her gratitude and the possibility of future support in the fight by saying that she can now support you. Upon reloading the game, you will find her moved to the third location.
Defeat the Boss at Windmill Village
After you have defeated the Godskin Noble and delivered the item to Millicent, she will now arrive at Domniula, Windmill Village. The map features prominent windmills that help you locate this village found on the northeastern side of the Shaded Castle.
The Godskin Apostle can be a difficult opponent for novice players, though you will not have much trouble with him if you know his potential attacks. Following the death of the Godskin Apostle, go to the Site of Grace and reload. There will be Millicent waiting for you once you are in the action again. By achieving this, you will have completed her quest’s section involving Altus Plateau. Simply repeat your previous conversation with her until she reaches fatigue, at which point she will yet again argue that she is still holding a sword and ready to fight beside you. Afterward, you will only find her again until you reach the endgame zone, Mountaintops of the Giants.
Find Millicent at the Mountaintops of the Giants
Getting to the Mountaintop of the Giants, on the northeastern part of Leyndell, Royal Capital, is the only way to keep in contact with Millicent. Towards the south of Castle Sol and southeast of Stargazer’s Ruins, you will discover the Ancient Snow Valley Ruins, where you can speak with her. Have a chat with Millicent to find out more regarding Miquella’s Haligtree and to let her know that it is where she will be continuing her trip. Once you have finished conversing with her, she will go to Miquella’s Haligtree.
Go to the Haligtree
After gaining entrance to Miquella’s Haligtree, you must cautiously descend its limbs while avoiding enormous creatures and tragic Albinaurics. You will start seeing a few buildings around the tree’s base at some point. If you want to face the boss, Loretta, Knight of the Haligtree, you’ll have to fight your way and clear out some other foes. Once you have taken this giant out of the picture, continue to Elphael, Brace of the Haligtree.
To find Millicent again, head to Miquella’s Haligtree and visit the Prayer Room Site of Grace. While venturing inside this region is purely voluntary, the opponents you’ll face here are some of the most deadly you will ever fight throughout the Lands Between. At this place, you will find out how Millicent intends to restore Malenia’s honor and the circumstances under which she became acquainted with Malenia, the Blade of Miquella. You have to finish up her dialog and reload the area. When you arrive again, she will already move to the next location.
Find Millicent at Elphael, Brace of the Haligtree
To get to the final boss encounter with Malenia, Blade of Miquella, you must travel to the Elphael Inner Wall Site of Grace in Elphael, Brace of the Haligtree, situated in the north of Miquella’s Haligtree. You’ll encounter a flock of enemies when you progress farther into the region. If you want to go there from the Elphael Inner Wall, you’ll have to pass the Scarlet Rot water ponds and then make your way to the Drainage Channel Site of Grace.
Kill the Ulcerated Tree Spirit Boss
Upon reaching the other side of the River of Rot, you will find an entry providing access to the Drainage Channel Site of Grace. It would be best to avoid this doorway to move by climbing the leftmost wall and crossing the cluster of trees to reach the pool of water in the south. An Ulcerated Tree Spirit awaits in this water rot at the bottom of a pit. Despite its ugly look, you will have to kill this boss before you proceed with Elden Ring Millicent quest.
Fight or Help Millicent
You will find two summoning stones at the end of the fight against the Ulcerated Tree Spirit. One of those is red, and if you use this one, you’ll be teleported into Millicent’s place, where you can battle with her. If you get the victory, the quest will conclude, and you’ll receive Millicent’s Prosthesis talisman, which improves your agility and increases the damage you do.
But if you decide to use the yellow sign, you’ll be welcomed into Millicent’s realm as an ally and tasked with protecting her from four red demons she calls “Millicent’s Sisters.” By doing so, you will be able to carry on with Millicent’s objective and receive the Rotten Winged Sword Insignia talisman that vastly increases attack damage with each subsequent blow.
After finishing the above quest, you should rest at the Drainage Channel Site of Grace and reload the area. Again move to the summoning stones, and you will see Millicent near that area. If you chat with her and again reload the game, you need to arrive at the same place where you meet her, and you will now find her dead body on the ground. The Unalloyed Gold Needle, required to craft Miquella’s Needle, can be looted from her corpse.
Defeat Malenia, Blade of Miquella
You have to go through the Drainage Channel to Haligtree’s last section and beat Malenia there to use the Unalloyerd Gold Needle and finish Millicent’s questline. She may be the toughest boss FromSoftware has ever created, though. Remember that this one is one of the worst Elden Ring bosses, and it can be challenging for you to kill her. Each of her fierce onslaughts will cure her, so you need all your wits about you to survive them. There are various methods for defeating the Malenia, one of the surest ways to ensure victory is to overuse Frost and Bleed effects while summoning the Mimic Tear Spirit Ash.
After you defeat Malenia, you’ll have the choice of returning the Unalloyed Gold Needle to the flower you found in her room. You will receive two rewards: Miquella’s Needle and a Somber Ancient Dragon Smithing Stone. If you take the Hyetta quest, you can alter the story’s conclusion with the help of Miquella’s Needle. It’s an essential item that can undo the Frenzied Flame ending when utilized at a certain location right before the game’s final cutscene. If you’d choose to do that, of course
