To make life easier for you, we have come up with the perfect guide. Here, we will show you how to take part in and complete this quest. We will also help you decide if you should help Millicent or kill her.

Elden Ring Millicent Quest Guide



To begin the Elden Ring Millicent quest, you need to speak with Gowry at his shack in Caelid. During this conversation, Gowry will ask you to find Millicent. If you accept to do so, you will need to unlock the barriers at Selia to reach the Plague Church.

Once you make your way here, you need to speak to Millicent. After you do so, you will need to acquire the gold needle from Commander O’Neil. Head into the swamps of the game to find the commander. Upon coming across him, you need to fight and defeat him. Doing so will give you the concerned gold needle.


You need to take this needle and give it to Gowry at his shack. Reload the game and speak to Gowry. He will then give you the gold needle, and you will need to give it to Millicent.

Upon handing over the gold needle, Millicent will give you the Prosthesis-Wearer Heirloom Talisman. This talisman helps increase intelligence, making it quite a helpful item.

You need to now speak with Millicent at Gowry’s Shack, after which you can simply reload Elden Ring to speak to Gowry again.


Millicent’s Quest Location 1 – Altus Plateau

After you complete this conversation, you need to head to the Altus Plateau to meet Millicent again. This is the first among several other locations you will meet Millicent at. Once at the plateau, go to the Lux Ruins. Outside these ruins, you will find a Site of Grace. You should find Millicent a little away from this location. Speak to her. After this, you will need to find her an arm from the Shaded Castle. Give this arm to Millicent.

Millicent’s Quest Location 2 – Windmill Village


After you hand over the prosthetic, head over to Windmill Village. Here, you need to first defeat the Godskin Apostle boss, after which you will find Millicent at the Point of Grace. You need to speak to her here too.

Millicent’s Quest Location 3 – Mountaintops of the Giants

Once at the Mountaintops of the Giants, you need to activate the Grand Lift. Once you do so, you can go to the Ancient Ruins and speak to Millicent.

After this interaction, Millicent will head to the Halleck Tree. To get here, you need 2 Secret Medallions. You will receive one from the Village of the Albinaurics. You will get the second medallion at the Castle of Saul. To receive this medallion, you will first need to defeat Commander Niall.

Millicent’s Quest Location 4 – Prayer Room

Once done, head over to the Prayer Room in the Halleck Tree area and speak to Millicent. Now, go to the Drainage Area.

Upon making it to the Drainage Area channel of grace, you need to head back and then head to the area on the left. Here, you need to battle an enemy.

After you do so, you will arrive at the all-important question, should you help or attack Millicent?

Kill or Help Millicent in Elden Ring Quest?

Kill Millicent

If you choose to kill Millicent, you will be rewarded with Millicent’s prosthesis. The item will enhance your dexterity by 5.

Help Millicent

If you choose to help Millicent, you will receive Rotten Winged Sword Insignia. This enhances damage on consecutive attacks.  Along with this talisman, you will also receive the Unalloyed gold needle.  The needle is crucial to one of Elden Ring’s endings. If you pick this choice, you will need to defeat Millicent’s sisters. There are 4 of them, and you need to enter her world to defeat them. Once you do so, you need to head back into your world to acquire the said sword.

The choice depends entirely upon you. However, the choice can also greatly influence how the rest of the game pans out, so you need to make a careful decision.

Once you make your choice, you need to head to the Site of Grace at the Drainage Channel and reload the world. Once you do so, head back to Millicent’s location. Pick up the gold needle from the location of her body, and then go to the Site of Grace at Haligtree.

Upon making your way to the lower level, you will need to fight Malenia. Turns out you’re really lucky because we’ve got just the guide for you. Check out our Malenia Boss Fight Guide in Elden Ring.
