Game: Elden Ring

An NPC summon whose very long quest has some excellent rewards, and is required to undo the Lord of Frenzied Flame ending.

Progressing Millicent’s quest makes her a summon for Magma Wyrm Makar, the Godskin Apostle at the Windmill Village, the Draconic Tree Sentinel at the Capital Outskirts, and the Black Blade Kindred in the Forbidden Lands. During her quest, you will be rewarded with the Prosthesis-Wearer Heirloom. Upon completion, Millicent will die, rewarding you with either Millicent’s Prosthesis or the Rotten Winged Sword Insignia and the Unalloyed Gold Needle (which can be turned into Miquella’s Needle). She also appears as an invader in the Swamp of Aeonia in Caelid.

How to Beat Millicent’s Quest and Undo the Frenzied Flame Ending

In the Swamp of Aeonia, find Commander O’Neil and kill him. This will reward you with the Commander’s Standard, and the first item needed for Millicent’s quest: the Unalloyed Gold Needle.

Speak to Gowry at Gowry’s Shack, on the outskirts of Sellia, Town of Sorcery in Caelid. If you haven’t talked to him before, he will tell you about Millicent, who is suffering from Scarlet Rot nearby. After exhausting his dialog, he will agree to repair the Unalloyed Gold Needle, which you can come back to collect after resting at a Site of Grace.

Millicent herself is located at the Church of the Plague, on the cliff above Gowry’s Shack. You can get here either by solving the puzzle in Sellia, Town of Sorcery, or by coming from above via Dragonbarrow to the North, using the nearby Spirit Spring to avoid fall damage. Speak to Millicent and give her the repaired Unalloyed Gold Needle. After resting nearby and speaking to her again, she will give you the Prosthesis-Wearer Heirloom. Rest at the Site of Grace again to get her to move.

Millicent will go to Gowry’s Shack, but the old man will be gone. Exhaust her dialog here in order to progress her quest and unlock her as a summon for Magma Wyrm Makar. After reloading the area, she will move and Gowry will return, giving you access to his shop.

Millicent will now be at the Erdtree-Gazing Hill site of grace in the Altus Plateau. In order to progress her quest, to the Shaded Castle to the North in order to acquire the Valkyrie’s Prosthesis after defeating the lone Cleanrot Knight there. Once you’ve acquired it, return to Millicent. This will both progress her quest, and unlock her as a summon for the Godskin Apostle in Dominula, Windmill Village, as well as for the Black Blade Kindred in the Forbidden Lands.

Go to Dominula, Windmill Village in the Altus Plateau. Defeat the Godskin Apostle boss located here (with the help of Millicent, if desired), and then rest at the nearby Windmill Heights Site of Grace. Millicent will be there. Exhaust her dialog in order to progress her quest.

Millicent will move to the Ancient Snow Valley Ruins Site of Grace in the Mountaintops of the Giants. Exhaust her dialog in order to progress her quest and learn about the location of the Haligtree Secret Medallion (Left).

Millicent will now more to the Prayer Room Site of Grace in Elphael, Brace of the Haligtree. She will remain here until you defeat the nearby Ulcerated Tree Spirit, located in a relatively small Scarlet Rot pool. Once you have defeated the boss, reload the area.

WARNING: Whichever summon sign you choose will cause the other to become impossible to complete. If you want to undo the Frenzied Flame ending, you will need to fight Millicent’s Sisters. Otherwise, the choice is yours, based on what rewards you want.

There will be two summon signs in this boss arena, and you will need to choose which conclusion you want to Millicent’s quest. Fighting Millicent (9a) will reward you with Millicent’s Prosthesis, whereas fighting Millicent’s Sisters (9b) will reward you with the Rotten Winged Sword Insignia and the Unalloyed Gold Needle, which can now be used to obtain further rewards. If you choose to fight Millicent instead of her four Sisters, then skip steps 10 and 11, going straight to step 12. If you choose to fight Millicent’s Sisters, make sure to reload the area and exhaust her dialog afterwards in order to receive the now-altered Unalloyed Gold Needle.

Note: This step is only possible if you chose to fight Millicent’s Sisters in Step 9.

After defeating the incredibly fair Malenia, Blade of Miquella, you can approach the Scarlet Aeonia flower left behind in Malenia’s boss arena and interact with it in order to turn the Unalloyed Gold Needle into Miquella’s Needle and a Somber Ancient Dragon Smithing Stone.

Note: This step is only possible if you chose to fight Millicent’s Sisters in Step 9.

If you have become Lord of Frenzied Flame after embracing the Three Fingers, you can use Miquella’s Needle anywhere in Dragonlord Placidusax’s arena (even before he is defeated) in Crumbling Farum Azula.

At the end of Millicent’s quest, return to Gowry’s Shack in order to learn about Malenia’s relationship to Millicent. Afterward, he will no longer be a merchant, but you can kill him for the Flock’s Canvas Talisman and Gowry’s Bell Bearing.
