Voiced by Allegra Marland

Millicent is an NPC in Elden Ring with a quest line that players can complete in order to gain some valuable items. Millicent is a young woman stricken with an incurable case of Scarlet Rot. Gowry will send players to look for her in an attempt to cure her of Scarlet Rot. Progress through her questline in order to unlock her as an NPC Summon Cooperator during specific boss battles.

Millicent can also be encountered as an NPC Invader. She will invade the player in the Swamp of Aeonia at all times of the day. She has light armor and appears to use a Shamshir, but with the Waterfowl Dance skill, the same as Malenia.

 

I would rather trust you than simply continue to spoil from within.

Millicent Questline: How to complete Millicent's Quest

Millicent has a questline related to Gowry, but also appears as an NPC Invader at the Aeonia Swamp. The quest can be completed after reaching the Haligtree Roots site of grace, and can still be completed after defeating Malenia. The quest can be done quickly if the player defeats the bosses or otherwise obtains the quest items before exhausting dialogue.

Questline Objectives:

  • Speak with Gowry in his shack and he will ask for a favor. He wants help to heal a young girl, Millicent, found beyond Sellia, who has been infected with Scarlet Rot. To do this, he will ask you to seek an Unalloyed Gold Needle, which is dropped by Commander O'Neil, located in the Swamp of Aeonia. In return, he will share the secrets of the town of Sellia. 
  • Give the Unalloyed Gold Needle to Gowry. He'll need some time to repair the needle and will give you Sellia's Secret. Speaking to Gowry and accepting his quest will unlock Polyanna, Adopted Daughter's summon sign, north of O'Neil's battle arena.
  • Warp to a nearby site of grace or quit the game to reload, and he'll give you the repaired needle.
  • Bring the needle to Millicent at the Church of the Plague. You may need to complete the puzzle in Sellia, Town of Sorcery to open the path uphill. Or, coming from Dragonbarrow, jump down a Spirit Spring to the north of the Church.
  • After Millicent uses the needle, rest at the nearby site of grace, then exhaust her dialogue. She will gift you the Prosthesis-Wearer Heirloom. Upon reloading the area, she will have moved to Gowry's shack.
  • Return to Gowry's shack to find him gone, but Millicent there. Exhaust her dialogue. Reload the area, and Millicent will move, and Gowry will return. You can now purchase spells from him.
  • Millicent will now be located just northeast of the Erdtree-Gazing Hill site of grace in Altus Plateau, standing near the edge of the cliff. [Map Link].
    • The player will need to go north to The Shaded Castle and retrieve the Valkyrie's Prosthesis, which is found in a chest in a room guarded by a single Cleanrot Knight, on the northwestern edge of the castle. Return to her, and give her the Valkyrie's Prosthesis item to advance her quest.
  • Go to Dominula, Windmill Village, and defeat the Godskin Apostle. After giving Millicent the Prosthesis, her summon sign will appear at the base of the hill northwest of the Stake of Marika.
  • After defeating the Apostle, rest at the Windmill Heights site of grace, and she will appear next to it. Exhaust her dialogue to continue the quest. [Map Link]
  • Millicent can be summoned to fight the Black Blade Kindred boss in Forbidden Lands, even before defeating the Godskin Apostle.
  • Millicent will move to the Ancient Snow Valley Ruins site of grace in Mountaintops of the Giants. Exhaust her dialogue to continue. [Map link]
    • If Millicent does not appear at the site of grace, try returning to the Windmill Heights again and see if she's there, and if so, exhaust her dialogue there.
  • Millicent will move to the Prayer Room site of grace in Elphael, Brace of the Haligtree. She will not move from this spot until the player has defeated the nearby Ulcerated Tree Spirit mini-boss. To reach the mini-boss, go to the Drainage Channel site of grace, go west through the doorway, climb up the ladder at the end of the corridor, and go out the doorway on your right at the top. The mini-boss is at the landmass across the gap to the left. To reach it, go up the slope on the right and walk across the tree branch, heading southwest across the gap. [Map link]
  • Once the player has defeated the mini-boss, there will be two summon signs near where the mini-boss used to be. Specifically, on the northwest hill around the lake. The player can either:
  • If the player chose to help Millicent, they can find her near where her summoning sign was, sitting by the rotten pool. Exhaust all of her dialogue, then reload the area. The Unalloyed Gold Needle is on the ground.
  • If you return to Gowry, and he will talk about Malenia and Millicent's connection. You will no longer be able to purchase from the Sage.

Millicent's Dialogue

Upon entering the Church of the Plague, Caelid

  • Ah...Ahh

Introduction

  • Nggh... Who's there? Well, it matters not. If you are wise, you will leave, immediately. My flesh writhes with scarlet rot. It is a curse. Not to be meddled with by man.

Upon giving her the Unalloyed Gold Needle

  • You ask that I stab myself with the needle... To quell the scarlet rot? But...how? ... Never mind. I've decided. I would rather trust you, than simply continue to spoil from within. Would you mind...averting your eyes for a moment? Well. That was easier than expected. But...why do I feel so...

Upon reloading area

  • I...hoped to see you again. My apologies for when last we met. I fainted before I could even thank you. Everything is as you said. Since inserting the needle, the scarlet rot has ceased to writhe. Even the nightmares have abated... And now, thought I can scarcely believe it myself, I can move as I please. It is all thanks to you. Not that I could every truly repay you, but I would like you to have this, by way of thanks. A token, though it is. 

Attacking her after giving her the Unalloyed Gold Needle

  • (Warning) Ugh. Is there something wrong? Please, cease this at once.
  • (Combat) Why are you doing this? Now you've forced my hand.
  • (On player kill) I will not forget what you did for me. But this day marks our farewell.

After receiving the Prosthesis-Wearer Heirloom

  • I'm considering leaving. On a journey. With the needle buried in my flesh, I've started to recall, but dimly... My destiny... My name is Millicent. I pray fate permits us meet again.

At Gowry's Shack

  • Oh, hello again. Something about this place felt familiar to me. So I decided to pay a visit, hoping to find someone here. But I've only found emptiness. Perhaps before my departure, I needed someone to say farewell to. I must focus on my journey, for which I have you to thank.
  • I must stay strong. I must focus on my journey, for which I have you to thank.

North of the Erdtree-Gazing Hill Grace on the Altus Plateau

  • Ah. We meet again. In truth, it's been smooth sailing, for me. The scarlet rot has stilled, since last we met. As such, I've been able to continue my journey. I realise that if I still had my sword arm, I could have aided you in battle.
  • Now, I'm tracing the path Malenia took, after unleashing the power of the scarlet rot, during her battle with General Radahn, in the Caelid Wilds. I should like to meet her, this vanished woman. I think she's in the north. In the lands that lie beyond the Erdtree.

After giving her the Valkyrie's Prosthesis

  • Giving me this arm? I thank you. I am in your debt, yet again. I think, if the arm serves well enough, it might be possible for me to wield a sword again.
  • If the arm serves well enough, it might be possible for me to wield a sword again. Perhaps, then. I can aid you in battle.

Near the Windmill Heights Grace on the Altus Plateau 

  • Ah, we meet yet again. The arm you gave me truly is a thing of wonder. It feels just like my own, even handling a sword. Perhaps it is foolish to say this to you of all people, but I am sure of my skill with the sword. Thus, I would have you call upon me in battle, should you ever have the need. It is the only way that I can express my thanks.

Near the Ancient Snow Valley Ruins Grace at Mountaintops of the Giants

  • To think we'd meet in such a place... What could your purpose possibly... No, I know well enough who you are, and what I know is good enough for me. Call upon me again in battle, should you have the need.
  • I'm searching for a fort to the north of the ruins. I heard the master of the fort was given a medallion that allowed him to visit the Haligtree. Indeed, I believe that is where Malenia will be found. The Haligtree is hidden somewhere in these Northern lands.

Near the Prayer Room Grace at Elphael, Brace of the Haligtree

  • Again we meet. I can only surmise our purposes are aligned. In which case, allow me to explain myself. I am of Malenia's blood. But in what capacity I know not. I could be sister, daughter, or an offshoot... Whatever the case though, I am certain of a kinship between us.
  • There is something I must return to Malenia. The will that was once her own. The dignity, the sense of self, that allowed her to resist the call of the scarlet rot. The pride she abandoned, to meet Radahn's measure.

After choosing to help Millicent at the end of her questline, laying by the pool near where her summoning sign was

  • Thank you for lending your hand. Without your help, I could not have defeated that quartet. I feel as if I've been in your debt from beginning to end.  Thank you. With your help, I was able to live as my own person, if only in passing.
  • But this is where things end. I pause to even tell you, but... I took out the needle myself. Tell whoever put you up to this. That if I am to flower into something other than myself, I would rather rot into nothingness as I am.
  • Please, let me pass alone. The scarlet rot writhes now, worse than ever. Soon, I won't be more than a mound of flesh. Curse-laden. Untouchable. I wouldn't want such a thing to bring you harm.

Killing Millicent at the end of her questline in Elphael, Brace of the Haligtree before reloading the area

  • I did not expect it to end like this. But I will not forget what you have done.

After choosing to challenge Millicent

  • Ahh, how could you... Is this your true heart? Was I... was it all...for this?

 

Millicent Notes & Trivia

  • In combat, Millicent wields a unique version of the Shamshir that has the Waterfowl Dance skill, which is normally only found on the Hand of Malenia. Before she receives the prosthesis, she uses it in her left hand, never two-handing it or doing anything else that would involve her right arm, and she won't use its skill either.
  • When fighting her as an invader in the swamp, it is recommended to use Flame, Cleanse Me or Preserving Boluses to cleanse the Scarlet Rot.
  • The name "Millicent" comes from the old Germanic name Amalasuintha, composed of the words "Amal" which means "work" or "labor" and "Swinth", which means "strong". Alternatively, the French variation, Mélisande, means "brave strength". This fits directly back into Millicent's character, who despite being heavily afflicted with the Scarlet Rot and lacking an arm, is able to travel from Caelid all the way to the Haligtree almost on her own, requiring only some assistance from the player.

      It seems that if you progress her questline by giving her the Unalloyed Gold Needle, she will no longer invade you.

        i sadly needed to kill my girl to get that prosthesis so shes dead. i did finish it before ng+ with helping her btw but still its pretty sad rip millicent

        • Anonymous

          Question - I gave her the prosthetic and now I can't find her. She isn't at the Ancient Valley, did I mess something up? She also isn't at the Windmill, I guess I messed up when I defeated Godskin before I should have. Did I lock myself from continuing on? Please help.

          • Anonymous

            For some reason I fought her once, and then she never appeared anymore as an invader. ¿It is because I found her later at that church and gave her the needle?

            • Anonymous

              Fighting her sisters is one of the worst things I've ever seen in the history of gaming. Giving the A.I i-frames AND dodging based inputs is the dumbest thing I've ever seen as well. What is the strategy here? Go back to a site of grace and equip a spinning move or some AOE spell? There is no strategy here other than being overpowered and min-maxing; skill is completely irrelevant. The fight is unfair and broken. At least give the A.I stamina and FP restrictions and health equivalent to the player instead of 6000hp.

              • Anonymous

                So ... she and her sisters are the children of Malenia? Gowry said he found them in the Swamp after the battle and talks about how much Millicent is like her mother.

                  for me this is bugged as there are no summoning signs to aid her or kill her. (ive gone as far as to kill godfrey btw)

                    honestly i forgot abt millicent was in a 3v1 cuz i was tryna deal with the annoying spear one. but she solo’d good ****

                      I thought it was optional but the rotten (in every sense of the word) ulcerated tree spirit at Elphael brace of the Haligtree must be killed if you are following Millicent's quest otherwise neither the gold sign to assist her, or the red sign to stab her in the back like a really dirty bastard forever destined to be maidenless, will appear. So good luck with that.

                        She isn't around where her summon sign was. I have the rotten winged sword insignia but no Millicent anywhere. Anyone else have same thing happen? Any ideas?

                        • tried doing her quest so I did gowry's sellia bs, took out oneil, and gave her the needle. went to shaded castle and got the prosthesis but the prompt to give it to her never came up. tried reloading the grace and she went to the shack and then disappeared off the face of the planet. i figured it mightve been because i forgot abt the godskin slenderman at windmill village being in her quest and rushed it early to dual wield the peelers (I'm on NG+). figured the quest is botched considering I also took out Magma Makar earlier and have beaten Malenia and Fire Giant on my run, but haven't burned the tree yet. is there any other place she might be? appreciate any suggestions.

                            "Draconic Tree Sentinel: You can summon Millicent for this boss, after giving her the Valkyrie's Prosthesis, and defeating the Godskin Apostle in Windmill Village." This is false. You only need to give her the prosthesis and she's available to summon for the Draconic Tree Sentinel even if you haven't yet defeated the Apostle. Pretty sure she's no longer available to summon for any fight after defeating Morgott, except the Forbidden Lands (obviously).

                              why can't it be possible to get just both talisman from her in one playthrough. Given the option it's always better to kill her cause the prosthesis is a direct upgrade to the rotten insignia and it stacks with the base insignia you can already find as well. It's so weird they'd lock on behind a entire NG+ cycle or a friend dropping it for you when they added systems like mausoleums just so you DON'T have to go to NG+ to get certain items.

                                  The name "Millicent" comes from the old Germanic name Amalasuintha, composed of the words "Amal" which means "work" or "labor" and "Swinth", which means "strong". Alternatively, ( in arabic ( AMAL ) means hope .

                                    If I don't use her summoning sign in forbidden lands for the black blade kindred then rest at a grace mountaintop of the giants, will her sign be gone when I go back for the gargoyle? I did see it just before the boss fight triggered but its not there now and Millicent is standing near the snow valley ruins grace.

                                      I only started her quest in the first place to get the flock's canvas talisman. But since then I've f**ked up in a pretty big way. I was aware of the three fingers, but I couldn't find any way out of the room you end up in after the floor collapses. I thought they would give me a choice I did not realise taking off my armour and opening the doors was me making the choice.

                                      So what exactly do I need to do to get that unalloyed gold needle so I won't be locked into the three fingers ending?

                                        Was running through the swamp on a fresh character. Finally found Cleanrot Knights for the first time. Was in the process of killing a second one when she all of a sudden invaded. Proceeded to one tap me with the first swing of her weapon art. Lol

                                          Some advice for you if you decide to do the full thing and help milicent:
                                          You know the tree root you descend from and have to climb back up to get out of that little bit with the Putrid Tree Spirit, right at the end of her quest?
                                          It can't fall off the ledge, but it can't climb up the root. It'll take awhile, but if you're a dex build you can resort to a few things that have lightning (Like Bolt of Gransax) or you can use a bow and throw some fire arrows on it. I didn't test arrow rain like an idiot because I forgot to upgrade my bow, but since those guys are weak to fire you can use some fire bone arrows against them. That's the cheese method I use with all my builds now, lol. Beats fighting that thing on tiny ground where everything is rot!

                                              easiest tree spirit kill: aggro it from the right side of the edge of the rot pool, without having to touch the swamp. retreat to the branch, poison with stone clumps, and throw volcano pots at the tip of the branch whenever mr. tree spirit is doing the idle crawling animation at you. any other ranged damage you have will expedite the process. popping godrick's rune for 5 str/dex is worth doing for volcano tick damage

                                                  when you complete her quest by siding with her, it locks you out of the prosthesis talisman by giving her a massive barrier to reflect all attacks... I understand why but could they not have come up with a more interesting way of stopping us other than a deus ex machina barrier?

You go and kill a mighty guy and his summons, got the item and all you need to do is go save her. But not me.. I went to farm Cleanrot set nearby.. after half an hour killing knights inside rotten swamp Torrent suddenly wanished and Millicent invaded me and I was like WTF?!! I tried to swimm away from her in that toxic pool followed up by 2 pissed off Cleanrot Knights but they were better. So I rather left my runes there, to Gowry, wait for Gowry and straight to her only to be killed again by two fcking giant insects! I love this game!

Each Sister grants somewhere in the neighborhood of ~$18,000 each. Kill three of them, then jump off a cliff and repeat the fight ad nauseam.

                                                          why do you need to defeat the tree spirit to advance her quest? i get that the fight with the sisters take place there but couldn't they have just put it somewhere else? or put the tree spirit somewhere else? it almost sounds like the devs got their wires crossed and put 2 events in the same place by accident and then had to accomodate for it by arbitrarily tying them together.

                                                              It suggests that even as she lay dying, she is viciously killing people in the swamp without even knowing it, the rot messing with her memory and will… until you give her the needle.

                                                              In summary, I don’t think the player cut her arm off, her dark spirit is just being projected in full form…

                                                              But really, how can I know? Not a whole lot of consistency when slaying invaders, much less lore on what exactly an invader even is as opposed to their corporeal form. At least, I haven’t come across or noticed any.

                                                                The characterization of everyone in this game seems to be that people just lose the will to live and die. It’s kinda obnoxious frankly makes a lot of quests feel samey

                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                            Millicent's bleeding from her right sleeve isn't due to her rot. We were invaded by Millicent, her right arm was intact. In fact, she just severs her own arm after then, to prevent herself from invading others while she loses consciousness to the rot, fighting her will to not be controlled by the rot again.

                                                                            'I'm the one who found her. A mere babe, in the swamp of Aeonia.' Gowry said. Millicent and her sisters were born while Melania unleashes her power in the swamp of Aeonia. The birth of life can happen through existing of power. Malenia and Miquella were also born through combining the powers of outer gods and Marika's, and the curse they were born with is the leakage of the power.

                                                                            We can trade incantation Scarlet Aeonia after defeating Malenia, and it says 'Each time the scarlet flower blooms, Malenia's rot advances. It has bloomed twice already.' Malenia's 1st bloom happened in the swamp, 2nd bloom is when we fought her. Yet we saw another scarlet flower near Malenia's boss room, with traveler set armor lying on it. There's no Malenia's 3rd bloom, telling us the flower isn't from Malenia, but from someone similar to Malenia.

                                                                            I was surprised how Milicent was able to find her way to Haligtree by herself, also find out where the medallion was, even knowing how Malenia felt unleashing her power in the swamp. Because Millicent and her sisters had been to Haligtree and met Malenia. That is why Millicent subconsciously set off her journey to seek Malenia, and was able to recall the way to get there.

                                                                            '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. ' said Gowry. We can also find Aeonian Swamp Spirit at the shore of the swamp: 'Let me see it, if only one last time. Your splendid blade, dancing amongst the scarlet rot.'

                                                                            Including Gowry and Aeonian Swamp Spirit, like many other sorcerers from Sellia witness the blossom of the great scarlet flower, and were obsessed with the power of rot since then. They want Malenia to be their god, replace Marika, and begin the Order of Rot. But Malenia hates the rot, the power that consumed her body and took over her consciousness. She inserted the needle made by Miquella into her body to cease her rot, and proudly fought to be the lord without the power of the rot. Also claimed to be the blade of Miquella, she would never want to be the god.

                                                                            On the talisman dropped by Gowry, Flock's Canvas Talisman noted, 'The figures represent the flock at prayer, their firm belief in the intangible inspiring even the solitary founder of their religion. What is faith if not an affirmation?' This became an order that was filled with worshippers with no lord. And so, these worshippers begin to create their own god.

                                                                            Millicent's sisters too were obsessed with the power of rot, while Millicent is more like her mother, fighting their will against the rot. After they've met their mother, and find out about the blossoming and advancing of the rot, the sisters betray and kill Millicent to make her bloom, leaving the scarlet flower and Millicent's armor in the Haligtree. That is why they were so confident about Millicent's reborn and the needle in the swamp. 'Each time the scarlet flower blooms, the rot advances.' Millicent's rot begins its ravaging since then, leading to why the rot within her body is much more severe than her sisters.

                                                                            'There is something I must return to Malenia. The will that was once her own. The dignity, the sense of self, that allowed her to resist the call of the scarlet rot. The pride she abandoned, to meet Radahn's measure.' Millicent wants to return the unalloyed gold needle to Malenia. She heard how Malenia abandon her will, forced to pull out the needle to unleash her rot at the swamp, to stay alive from the fight.

                                                                            And that's when Millicent's sisters invade to kill her again. The image told the story. When they fight at the pool of rot, sisters were all standing in the pool, Millicents stood away from the pool. It shows Millicent's sisters were with the rot side, invading to kill Millicent, also to stop her from bringing the needle to Malenia.

                                                                            'Would you disown us too? As your Mother did? We children of the scarlet rot?' -Gowry
                                                                            Millicent's fate was hidden under Gowry's corpse. We can only reveal Gowry's identity being the Kindred of Rot and find out the Flock's Canvas Talisman by killing it. Telling us that the worshipper will never stop finding their way to sacrifice Millicent.

                                                                            Help or betray? Die or rise? Millicent was destined for her fate can only be decided by others. Just like mother Malenia, whose only hope is her dearest brother Miquella. I chose to never betray Millicent, but I can't help to wonder if I could actually save her by betraying her?... So that Millicent can last until Miquella's return, that way maybe both she and her mother can be saved by Miquella by then?

                                                                                  She wasn't at that grace for me, so I kept playing... then I went to Farum Azula, and decided to check up on Millicent, and she's not anywhere now. So her quest might be bugged out in my playthrough, which is frustrating bc I'm locked into an ending right now, and being able to find her would help a lot with that.

The first time I got the riposte like normal, but the next two times it canceled Waterfowl Dance but she didn’t stagger and just kept on attacking me. Is that supposed to happen?

Two of them fell off the edge due to her multi-hit attack. The last one ran up and jumped at her missing. She jumped down after them and the last one jumped to follow her. I did not even get to fight as all five of them suicide over the cliff edge. Most bizarre experience in the game yet.

                                                                                                            Something to note, I think Milicent possibly would have turned into one of the massive Scarlet Aeonia flowers. The two hints they give you are the Traveler's set found by the flower near Malenia's boss room, which is the same clothing Milicent wears, but white instead of brown/covered in blood. And, Milicent's own quote that she doesn't want to "blossom into something other than myself." Whatever purpose is beyond me, though.

                                                                                                            • Anonymous

                                                                                                              Bow users can rain of arrows to great effect here.

She is stuck at Erdtree Grazing Hill, does not move to Windmill Village or Mountaintop of the Giants. Only dialogue is something like "I'm following the path Malenia took, beyond the Erdtree". I haven't visited the prayer room in Haligtree yet, so I'm unsure whether the quest is broken for good at this stage.

                                                                                                                • Anonymous

Anticipated a quick defeat. Summoned a random to help me. Both of us miraculously made it to the second phase. Each of taking agro off and on and then the other stunlocking her. Beat her and I just sat there in disbelief. Must be the luckiest sum*itch in the world. Tried some co-op after wards and got clapped like 10 times in a row. Not sure how that first fight went so good. I'm gonna go buy a lottery ticket now.

                                                                                                                    • I don't know what prevents Millicent from invading before starting her questline (I was never able to get her to before or after) but from reading what others have written when they can't get her to invade, starting her questline may permanently prevent her from ever doing so.

                                                                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                                                                        Before starting it, and at multiple stages during her quest, I've tried to trigger her invasion but she does not spawn.

                                                                                                                        There is some incorrect or missing information about her invasion. My gues is that the invasion has one or more additional triggers, or a cutoff point caused by exploration/advancing the story.

                                                                                                                        • Anonymous

Gowry can be found afterwards dead in his shack in a praying pose. It seems like gowry wanted her to die so she could bloom into a scarlet aeonia.

Lol the quests are so finicky/dependent cant tell if its brilliant, lazy, or torture.

I walked on the cliff and attack with my AoW, after a few hits, the spirit comes up to the cliff, so you jump just down to the little sea and give him again a few hits. You can repeat this easily, but you still need to watch out what the spirit does, since he switch positions fast sometimes also.
