Location Gowry's Shack, Caelid
Role Elder Sage
Voiced by Stephen Boxer

Gowry is an NPC in Elden Ring. Gowry is a once great Sage who wishes to cure the young Millicent from a rotting sickness. He can be found in his shack, Gowry's Shack within Caelid. Speaking with Gowry is required to complete Millicent's questline.

 

The rotting sickness that afflicts Millicent has no cure. When the Erdtree flourished, even the demigods could not stave off its effects, despite their nigh godhood.

Gowry's Location in Elden Ring

Gowry can be found at Gowry's Shack located in eastern Caelid, just before reaching Sellia, Town of Sorcery. [Map Link]

 

Gowry Questline: How to complete Gowry's Quest

He will sell: Glintstone Stars, Night ShardNight Maiden's Mist, and Pest Threads if unlocked during Millicent's quest.

Beware of the Giant Dog found a short distance before the shack. Aggroing this dog and then speaking to Gowry may cause it to kill him.

In this location, speak to Gowry, a great sage to begin his questline involving Millicent. In exchange for yourself you can obtain Sellia's Secret. After further progressing through this questline, the sage will want to pass on some sorcery knowledge by giving you access to some of his spells. 

The additional spell Pest Threads will become available here after progressing through Millicent's questline and giving her the Valkyrie's Prosthesis. Purchasing it from him will prompt some dialogue from him and allow you to ask him about his interest in rot and Malenia. You will also be given the Desperate Prayer gesture.

Once you have progressed Millicent's questline to the point that you can choose to invade Millicent or help her in battle, Gowry can be found crying in his shack. Ask him why he's crying and he will ask you to kill Millicent, rather than help her in battle, as he wishes for her to become a flower.

  1. Assist Millicent: Upon returning to his shack, Gowry will be lamenting over Millicent's decision to remove the needle. Killing him at this point will not cause him to respawn, and he will drop Flock's Canvas Talisman and Gowry's Bell Bearing.
  2. Challenge Millicent: Upon returning to his shack, Gowry will be dead and you can also retrieve the Flock's Canvas Talisman and Gowry's Bell Bearing.

Dialogue in Elden Ring: Gowry

Introduction

  • Oh, a pleasure to see you. a pleasure indeed. I am Gowry. A great sage, in my day anyway. I'd hoped to ask favour, when one of your ilk came along. A strapping young Tarnished, able to cross the Scarlet swamp of Aeonia.  Don't fret, I'll provide fine recompense. Should you accept.. I will teach you the secret of Sellia, the town you see there. 
  • Ah, then you're willing to lend a hand, are you? I need your help to heal a certain young girl. Her name is Millicent. You will find her beyond Sellia resting at the church atop. the cliff stricken by the rotting sickness. 
  • First you must find the unalloyed gold needle. It's hidden somewhere deep in the scarlet swamp of Aeonia.  Then I will tell you as promised. The secret of the town of Sellia. 

Visit

  • Ohh, you've found the unalloyed gold needle. As promised I've detailed the secret of Sellia right here. Go on, its yours. Now, let me have a look at the needle. 
  • The needle is repaired. Now it will forestall the rotting sickness I'm sure. Will you give it to the girl, Millicent? I will reward you in kind. Millicent rests at the church atop the cliff, beyond Sellia, the town yonder. Tended to by the witless pests who worship her, or rather, her rotting sickness, as a god. A wretched fate indeed. The poor girl, she never wished for any of this. 
  • Do you find it peculiar? That I would show such concern for the girl? Well, I'm the one who found her. A mere babe, in the swamp of Aeonia. She is one of my dear daughters. But the rotting sickness erodes one's memory. I doubt that she remembers the first thing about me. Oh, I must be getting old. I didn't always worry so much. 

After Millicent has visited and left Gowry's Shack

  • Oh, you noticed, did you?
    Indeed, Millicent did visit this hovel of a home.
    It seems the memories eaten away by the rotting sickness yet remain, but faintly.
    However, she has no need of me, any more.
    No, she must embark on her journey, and stare her fate in the eye. I mustn't impede.
    As I've aged, I've found the best way to aid the young...
    Is to be forgotten.
  • Please make certain that little Millicent goes unharmed.
    Like her mother, she has the stuff to be a great warrior,
    but commands only one arm, and is yet preciously young.

After giving Millicent the Valkyrie Prosthesis

  • This is a wonderful development. Thank you for your kindness. Now Millicent may fully realise her true warrior's potential. Like her beautiful mother.
  • Green and undeveloped, waiting to flower into magnificence. What a wondrous day that will be. In truth, before her, I'd never seen a bud of such superior quality. She might very well outshine her sisters.

After giving Millicent the Valkyrie Prosthesis and purchasing the Pest Threads incantation

  • Do you have an interest in rot incantations? Then you might like to learn something of the history...of Malenia, goddess of scarlet rot.
  • "Queen Marika and her King Consort Radagon were blessed with twin demigods, and Malenia was one of them.
    She was born an Empyrean, carrying the scarlet rot.
    An Empyrean...is no mere demigod.
    In the age of the Elden Ring, and Queen Marika, the precious Empyrean was born. A new god to forge a new Order.
    Since Malenia fought Radahn, and the great scarlet flower blossomed in Aeonia, I have dedicated myself to her.
    And to the resplendence of the Order of Rot. The cycle of decay and rebirth."

After speaking to Millicent at the Prayer Room Site of Grace

  • The words of a true innocent, the dear girl. Well, perhaps this is just as it should be. Little Millicent, following in the steps of her mother, no matter what. This is their fate, after all.

Once you have the choice to help or invade Millicent:

  • [Why are you crying?] "Oh it's just...
    I realised that I'd soon be saying my goodbyes to Millicent, and...
    My eyes began to well...
    She is to meet them very soon. Her sisters.
    And when she does, she'll be defeated, surely, and begin to flower."
  • [Become a flower? (1)] "Which is why...
    If you happen to be present for the girl's fight with her sisters,
    I ask that you side with the sisters and kill Millicent.
    It must be done by your hand; no other.
    Millicent trusts you, rather deeply in fact.
    Sever that trust. Nurtured by betrayal, her bud will flower most vividly.
    When Malenia ascends to godhood, Millicent too shall be reborn.
    As a scarlet valkyrie."
  • [Become a flower? (2)] "You can't tell me you don't wish to see it.
    The superior bud that is Millicent, becoming the finest of flowers?
    I beg of you, kill her. With your own two hands."

Other

  • "We shall meet again, you and I. There are countless pests to choose from." (First time killing Gowry)
  • "We shall meet again. As many times as it takes. For you to understand." (Subsequent killing at Gowry's Shack after the first)
  • "Have you taken the lesson, now? Killing me is an exercise in futility. All is well, provided you understand. Let's just pretend it never happened, shall we?" (Dialogue after talking to him at Gowry's Shack after he has respawned)

After assisting Millicent and her quest ends

  • Millicent, my daughter. Why would you take out the needle? You were so close. So very close. To becoming the fairest of all flowers. Would you disown us too? As your Mother did? We children of the scarlet rot?
  • Millicent... Malenia... Do you detest us, so utterly?

After killing Millicent at the Church of Plague

  • "O Millicent, my daughter... Who would prune your sapling flesh?
    Such...such cruel and vulgar violence..."
  • "O Millicent... My most promising little bud..."

 

Elden Ring Gowry Notes & Trivia

  • Killing him at Gowry's Shack reveals the body to be a Kindred of Rot followed by dialogue from Gowry suggesting his actual body is elsewhere. When reloading the world he will have respawned.
  • If you choose to assist Millicent rather than invade her, you may be locked out of getting the Flock's Canvas Talisman. Sometimes, Gowry cannot be killed and will continue to turn into the kindred of rot. It is not known if this is intentional or a bug.

      I love how this dude got an own dinosaur dog standing guard in front of his shack. Would be cool if that one was neutral and didn't aggro until killing Gowry. Looks like a good boi. The name "Rex" would go for him perfectly.

        The dog killed him through the wall before I could speak to him... Everyone seems to hate him so I don't think I missed out on much.

          What a maidenless guy, he esentially made Milicent able to live normally again, but at the cost of being cursed so she could eventually bloom just like Malenia did, becoming a monster and risking countless lives. Good thing we helped her spend her last moments with courage and pride, and died being herself.

                Hi character design has strong parallels to the titular whisperer in Lovecraft's The Whisperer in Darkness.

                SPOILERS (for both Elden Ring and the story):

                They're both hermits that teach the protagonists forbidden and eldritch lore.
                Gowry and the whisperer are both rigid and corpse like figures, with only their hands and face showing.
                Both characters are unveiled to be an inhuman creatures masquerading as a human as a means to communicate with the protagonists.

                  Tarnished: "Oh boy a new NPC that requires visiting and reloading the area he's in multiple times over the questline he's involved in, I bet he has a convenient site of grace nearby to help facilitate this!"

                  Gowry: "Yes... Site of grace... That's exactly what I have nearby..." *Nervously pushes giant headed dog behind him*

                    Passively does "Well, What is It?", leading me to believe he is a scion of Giant Dad, the only man strong enough to oppose Let Me Solo Her. This might be why he worships Malenia, as that is the direct foe of jar man himself.

                    Similarly, Bernahl carries a Zweihander, and given that we find him in a shack, same as Gowry, it's safe to say that he took the weapon from the old man while he was distracted by a nearby bass cannon.

                    On top of this, he carries the Flock's canvas talisman, which also boosts the pyromancies of the game by proxy, even though it's not its own spell class anymore. Thus buffing the Black Flame spell his ancestors once wielded, though its melee variant is still used by Black Flame Monks.

                    Given this note, it's safe to say that the original Giant Dad fell to the Gloam-eyed Queen, who divided his power amongst the Godskins. Even further enforced by the fact that we need to kill a Godskin Apostle to help Millicent, knowing that she was adopted by a scion of Giant Dad.

                    However, Millicent removes the needle in the end, meaning she chose to die as a Dex Build, on her own terms, with no further links to Giant Dad. And when we return to Gowry, he is broken, having stopped doing "Well, What is It?". Killing him here will cause him to die for good, forever ending the Giant Dad Bloodline.

                    Whether this is a good ending or not is up to interpretation, though.

                    • For the record you can't kill him until Millicent dies. It doesn't matter when or what the method of death it was, once she dies he will be mourning her and you can actually kill him for the items. The two most optimal points to kill him are after the Godskin fight in the Windmill Village after you give Millicent the arm (which requires killing her right after), or at the end of Millicent's quest after helping her. In both cases you get a talisman from Millicent and Gowry will have Pest Threads for sale.

                        Guys, he isn't the Outer God of Scarlet Rot. Though he might be the founder of the religion mentioned in the Flock's Canvas Talisman. And he's Millicent's adoptive father, as he tells you himself. The most reasonable assumption is he's just some guy with a rot fetish.

                        • Anonymous

                          Wiki page is wrong. You can assist Millicent, exhaust Gowry's dialogue, and then kill him for the Flock's Canvas Talisman. Someone beat me to giving that tip in the talisman's page but this page reads poorly suggesting this isn't the case (or that it is simply not possible when helping her) which is false. Needs update for clarity and correction.

                          • Anonymous

                            This guy is for sure the Outer God of the Scarlet Rot. I think when he refers to Milicent as his daughter, I think it's only because Malenia and her lineage are infected with Rot, and thus he considers them his kindred (as in, he spreads his rot, and he considers the infected his family. That's why the bug things are called Kindred of Rot, they are a family of plague). He never actually sired Milicent and her sisters with Malenia, he only infected them with his power as the Outer God. When you kill him and he says his true body is somewhere else, I think it's sealed in the Lake of Rot. The God of Rot cannot leave his prison, so the best he can do is project a human form onto one of his Kindred of Rot vassals (similarly to how Morgott has projections we fight).

                            However, the thing that confuses me is why does he use Miquella's Needle? The purpose of the Needle is to halt the influence of an Outer God. Gowry, who I believe is the Outer God of Rot (however if you don't believe that, him being just a worshipper still makes sense) would probably want to rid the world of the Needle, right? Because it can be used to stop his (or his god's) influence. It's literally the only thing in this game that can cure the Rot, so it seems like it would go against his goals as associated with the Rot. Wouldn't he be more willing to destroy it so the only cure for the Rot is gone?

                              Gave him the needle, he repaired it and as I was sitting idle in the safety of his shack the dog creamed him in front of me. Afterwards I continued millicents quest to the point of killing godskin then I decided to go back to his shack and for some odd reason he spawned again, not too sure what the trigger for him coming back.

                                Gowry is literally the God of Rot possessing a kindred body. Which is why it doesn't matter if you kill the vessel. He's a God that can't be reached. He took interest in the lineage of warriors from the Shaded Castle and somehow he had children with Malenia.

                                  To get Night Shard you need to finish his questline which involves finishing Millicent's (tedious) questline but the superior Night Comet is found in a chest in the nearby town? Something seems off here. Night Comet and Maiden's Mist should have been what he offers at the end. Night Shard should have been in the chest in Sellia and the Threads should have been on a Scarab or dungeon in Caelid

                                      I wonder if he believes she'd function like malenia and revive through blooming. Don't understand why it has to be this way, though. Why betrayal as the catalyst?

                                                              this guy had a dialogue that isn't present on this page. After giving Millicent the needle, and then visiting her at Gowry's Shack, and then returning to Gowry's Shack after Millicents visit gives a new piece dialogue. (i believe this is the 4th dialog bulletpoint currently labelled "??")

                                                              There was the option to say "Millicent has visited" underneath the buy sorcery option. He then said around a paragraph worth of dialog, that ended with a piece of life advice to the effect of: "As I age, the best thing I have found to aid the young, is to be forgotten".

                                                              After he said this, there is no futher "Talk" dialogue and you can only select "Study sorcery" or "Leave". I was all, that sounds deep and philosophical but I don't quite get it, let's head to the wiki and read that quote agai----

I reloaded again to see him come back, but he remained gone, I'm thinking that he has no reason to reappear because Millicent is dead.

You can't get it after her quest concludes cuz he's too mopey for the rest of time to sell you anything anymore.

                                                                                                      Got the talisman off his corpse; with no pest replacement issues.

                                                                                                              • Once Millicent leaves after you've given her the needle, she'll visit Gowry's shack. If you talk to her there, you have additional conversation option when she leaves and Gowry returns. Don't remember the specifics, but I it blew my mind when he said the best aid to younger generation is to be forgotten.

                                                                                                                • So I got all 3 of the runes (Rotten Winged Sword Insignia, Millicent's Prosthesis and Flock's Canvas Talisman) and here's how: I progressed Millicent's quest all the way until I help her with the invasion and after reloading the are she's sitting down the same area. 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

                                                                                                                    Should mention this as an active bug in the quest on the page:

                                                                                                                    If you go help Millicent kill her sisters before talking to Gowry, the quest will bug at this point and the Gowry will be in an endless respawn loop, preventing you from getting his bell bearing and the talisman he drops.

                                                                                                                    The only solution around the bug is to talk to him BEFORE fighting the sisters (helping Millicent) and exhaust his dialogue, then you can fight the sisters and kill Gowry for his drops.

                                                                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                                                                        I'm fairly sure Gowry is by all means, the Outer God of Rot. He can show his visage over any of the creatures of rot; thus his little quote about saying there's plenty of pests to choose from.
                                                                                                                        He states that Millicent is but one of his daughters. Red haired and inflicted with rot. Conveniently, he knows how to hold at bay an incurable sickness, and the exact location of where one may find the item to do so.
                                                                                                                        Why Gowry wants demigod children to be plastered in armor head to toe made of Unalloyed Gold, a material that stops the intervention of Outer Gods like himself, is unknown. Perhaps he wants to create an army of people harboring hatred for the Outer Gods outfitted with armaments created exclusively to fight against them? He clearly doesn't want to let them know who he is, as he evades Millicent when she goes to visit his shack, and states that he's found its best that he's left removed from their memories which implies he's done this before.
                                                                                                                        Malenia is most definitely one of his other 'daughters' if not the only other one, and he is grief stricken when Millicent is slain because she is his new pet project where apparently, Malenia failed him.

                                                                                                                        Maybe he doesn't really have an ulterior motive and is just some freak god with a kink for making ladies lose their minds and limbs through daddy's disease juice, but gives them ways to stall it so he can savor it more. Who know?

                                                                                                                        • Anonymous

My quest for him bugged out, he never vanishes to drop the talisman after doing the girl's quest to completion and attacking just makes the shrimp body appear.

Afterwards when spoken to he repeats: "Millicent... Malenia... do you detest us so utterly?"
