Where to find Flock's Canvas Talisman in Elden Ring

  • Drops from Gowry after you kill him, only if he is crying about Millicent's death.
  • Completing Millicent's entire quest line, by slaying or helping her at the end, will put Gowry in the "crying" state.
  • Note that you can also get Gowry in this state if you progress Millicent's quest to where she stands to the northeast of the Erdtree-Gazing Hill site of grace, on the western side of Altus Plateau. [Map link]
  • Might be found near Gowry after you invade and kill Milicent (more info needed).

    • Can confirm you can get this AND her Prosthesis Talisman if you kill Millicent when she's at Windmill Village after you've given her the Valkyrie Prosthesis and killed the Godskin boss. I killed her after exhausting her dialogue then went to Gowry who was crying and killed him for this drop. Interestingly enough, I could also buy Pest Threads from his Bell even though I didn't talk to him after giving Millicent the arm.

        Tested 2x: I got Mellicent to Elphael, killed her and got her prosthesis, then went to Gowry and he was crying. I killed him and got the Flock's Canvas Talisman. There was no need to kill the tree spirit in Haligtree.

        • I've only ever found Gowry already dead with the loot next to him. Then again I always forget to go visit him right away after completing Millicent's questline, so maybe he just dies after some time if you don't visit?

          • Is not multiplicative with the Faithful's Canvas Talisman. Tested with Giantsflame Take Thee, otherwise unbuffed, using a seal with 347 Incantation Scaling. An uncharged cast (in stealth, to the same enemy every time) deals 1,219 with neither, 1,316 (8% increase) with the Flock's Talisman, 1,267 (4% increase) with the Faithful's Talisman, and 1,365 (12% increase) with both.

            Some spell pages that list their available buffs claim that they're additive with each other, and they're correct. This page is not.

              They fixed the "turning into a bug" bug. I killed him after I had helped Millicent and she had died. He was sitting there leaned back with his hand over his eyes, perhaps he was crying but I'm unsure. I got his Bell Bearing and the item.

                Should effect buffing incantations, it's not like an extra 8% to Electrify Armament or Barrier Of Gold would make them OP.

                  Man these things got nerfed hard compared to their counterparts
                  in previous games. Their dark souls 3 equivalents grant +12% and +20% respectively.

                    If you get him into a crying state and want the talisman DO NOT FINISH TALKING TO HIM, JUST KILL HIM. I asked him why he was crying and after he was done telling me. he stopped crying. So I wasn't sure it was still safe to kill him in that state.

                        Seems like a grammatical error with the sentence in the middle of the item description -
                        "The figures represent the flock at prayer, their firm belief in the intangible inspiring even the solitary founder of their religion."
                        What I think would sound and look better - "The figures represent the flock at prayer, their firm belief in the intangible, inspiring, and even solitary founder of their religion."

                            Hello, great article with lots of useful information and lore. I noticed one of the hyperlinks has a typo. In the stat box (upper right corner) the characters in the hyperlink are "ncantations (" whereas it should be "Incantations". I hope this helps.

                              Huh, you're missing a talisman on the wiki. There's a weaker version of this called the 'Faithful's Canvas Talisman' with different art - the singers only take up little less than half the talisman art, while this version has them covering it near completely. Only weighs 0.7 compared to this which is 1.0.

                                You can get this Talisman by killing Millicent while she is in the Windmill Village, afterwards you can go back to the shack and Gowry will become to despondent to live anymore and you can kill and retrieve the talisman.

                                  8%...it's almost worse than +5 faith talisman in incacination damage...if you have lower than 60 faith(assumming 60 faith build isn't normal in 125 level pvp). This talisman can be only useful a slightly better than +5 faith talisman(which is literally trash) only if you have 70+ faith. There's not really any talisman that can boost enough incacination except scoprion shits(really hard to use it in pvp)

                                                I never liked talismans like these because it always felt like the auto-pick if I ever wanted to use that type of casting at all. It becomes so easy to feel like all 4 of your talismans are auto-pick, and then never experiment with anything else.

                                                      YOU DO NOT NEED TO INVADE AND KILL MILLICENT. You can do the good ending where you help her kill her sisters, she dies on her own, and go back to Gowry and kill him for his. I exhausted his dialogue first and then let him have it bc he deserves it lol

                                                      • I can confirm, this does not work on healing-over-time incantations such as Blessing of the Erdtree or Bestial Vitality. Tested for both healing and duration, it has zero effect.

Right after curing her (so that she stands and thanks you and gives u the +5 faith talisman), I killed her. Rested at the grace site. Weent to Flock. Killed him and he droppeed this t alisman. So it can be gotten much quicker if you don't care about the sombeer stone or the other talismans you can get from milicents questline

                                                              Before, Gowry wasn't in a proper state for me to get the Flock Talisman (I helped Millicent in mine). He was simply acting normally as if I hadn't done Millicent's questline, and I couldn't kill him to get the talisman. I figured I might be locked out because of this bug.

                                                              After patch 1.03, I went to check in on him and he was in the 'despairing' state like he was supposed to be in! I managed to kill him successfully and got the Flock Talisman! Seems patch 1.03 fixed this issue.

                                                                Got him to finally react to it; and killed him for the talisman. (post 1.03 patch)

I talked with her and exhausted her dialogue than I killed her. After that, I got back to Gowry's shack, exhausted his dialogue and just buffed myself to 1 shot him.

                                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                                      Yeah, there must be some bug - heh - with the associated quest line here. I helped Millicent all throughout the world, but never bothered to go back to Gowry since he disappears after you give Millicent the Unalloyed Golden Needle and there is LITERALLY ZERO indication that he might ever come back to the shack or be a merchant at all! Either way, now he's just a merchant, and when I try to kill him he fades into one of the Pests. I do sincerely hope this gets fixed soon because this is massively annoying for anyone trying to get all the talismans in the game.

As soon as you give the unalloyed needle to Millicent, you can murder her in the church, reload the area and go back to Gowry. He will be grieving and you can murder him for the tailisman. I just tried this cause I forgot to kill him in my previous NG+.

On one save Gowry was mourning and killing him gave me the talisman. On the other, he talks to me like normal and turns into a pest when I kill him, not dropping the talisman.
                                                                                          As far as I'm aware, haven't done anything different so I'm assuming hes bugged on my second try. No amount of reloading, travelling and talking has fixed it yet.

                                                                                            • This talisman is basically useless. You don't get it until near the end game while sorcery mages get theirs much much sooner. The damage is roughly 10%, but probably close to 12% akin to the sorcery boosting talisman. There are much better talismans in my opinion, and in almost any case 10-12% damage isn't going to make or break your build. You're better off using golden vow/flame grant me strengh (if you're using fire damage with the latter) to boost your damage.

This page says it's impossible to kill him because e turns into a bug, but I just one shot him and got the talisman anyway...
