Miquella's Needle is a Consumable Item in Elden Ring. Most Consumables grant various effects such as restorative properties for recovering HP, removing certain negative status effects or applying temporary buffs and debuffs, while others can be thrown at enemies to deal damage.

 

One of the unalloyed gold needles that Miquella crafted to ward away the meddling of outer gods.

Capable of subduing the flame of frenzy if inherited, allowing one to cheat fate and avoid becoming Lord of Frenzied Flame.

However, the needle is as yet unfinished and can only be used in the heart of the storm beyond time said to be found in Faram [sic] Azula.

 

Where to find Miquella's Needle in Elden Ring

Miquella's Needle can be obtained after completing Millicent's questline, and returning the Unalloyed Gold Needle to the Scarlet Aeonia left after Malenia, Blade of Miquella's fight.

 

Miquella's Needle use in Elden Ring

Miquella's Needle is used at Dragonlord Placidusax's arena at Crumbling Farum Azula to reverse the Three Fingers' flame of frenzy. This is the only way to undo the Lord of Frenzied Flame ending. To use it, simply select it from your inventory anywhere in the arena. Fighting Placidusax is NOT necessary to use the needle, simply being at the boss arena will do.

 

Elden Ring Miquella's Needle Notes & Tips

  • Using this item to subdue the Flame of Frenzy will remove the yellow glow in your character's eyes gained by accepting the Frenzied Flame, but it will not undo the burn marks left on your characters body. (If you do want to remove the burn marks for fashion purposes, you can easily do so by interacting with the mirror in Fia's room in the Roundtable Hold, or by talking to Rennala after defeating her and selecting the "Cosmetics" option.)
  • You can hold up to 1 Miquella's Needle.
  • You can store up to 600 Miquella's Needle.
  • This item DOES NOT carry over to NG+.

      I'm not sure about this but after beating Malenia there was a scarlet aeonia in the boss arena and I'm sure I got the action prompt about the needle, so what was that about?

        it says after we undo the curse, the mark on the body stays but can be easily removed by editing the cosmetics. but how about the glowing eyes? can we get it again with the cosmetics? those eyes are badass although i don't wanna be cursed no more.

          did millicent's quest for the RWS and gowry's talisman but decided to go to 3 fingers so i could undo it and keep the burns in the goldmask ending since i also did his quest. i also didnt get the finger print shield before hitting the ground and losing half my health instead of all of it like the last 2 dozen attempts because screw that platforming section.

            Wait did the devs seriously not consider making this a key item for some of the best endings? IE: I get frenzied, therefore don't burn Melina, then I get the needle, use it in Azula, and go for any of the other endings with Melina still alive... Why is that not a thing?

              After all the hassle to get and use the needle, I was hoping for more than just the kneeling healing animation

                I'm seriously disappointed in fromsoft not taking the opportunity to make malenia a secret boss once you become the lord of frenzy

                  Killed several gods, scorched myself in the flames of Hell, broke free from the worst curse known to man, and claimed the throne of the world's most powerful country.

                  And after all that, Melina never came back to talk to me.

                    I'm going to have to try getting this at some point and I can't say I'm looking forward to Malenia. I made a stupid mistake and not for the first time since starting elden ring. Instead of reading the relevant wiki page I listened to that idiot Hyetta I took off my armour then opened the door and inherited the flame of frenzy. I thought the three fingers would give me a choice, I did not know taking my armour off and opening the door was the choice.

                      I've really pis*ed on my cornflakes with needing to get this. I thought I would be given a choice and need to give a yes or no answer. I did not know opening the door was the choice and the way out was somewhere else.

                        Does anyone know if it’s possible to use the needle in multiplayer? I already have defeated placidusax, however we both killed each other at the same time, so I was never able to rest at the site of grace there and now can no longer access the arena in singleplayer.

                          From a lore point of view I wonder if using this needle and then getting the normal or perfect order ending prevent influence of the greater will too. Or it's just a boring consumable that get destroyed after used. I like to think that this remains deep in my flesh keeping the outer gods out of my business

                            My eyes still glow after using the needle. Seems like its updated so you can keep the glowing eyes now. At fia's mirror I can turn the burnmarks AND eye glow still on and off.

                              I think a much better use for the needle would've been if it were a talisman. When you equip it it negates or vastly slows scarlet rot build-up from the environment (rot swamps and what not). It would've made sense as well seeing as the needle halted the rot within Millicent. And considering the absolute hell-**** you go through to get it, I think it would've been a nice reward.

                              • My favorite ending: Use the Frenzied Flame to burn the Erdtree, saving Melina, then use the needle to cure yourself. After that, do the Age of Stars.

                                  Does using it revert your previous eyes modification or you just don't have special eyes anymore ?

                                  (I want to keep my red eyes, but hate to not have the frenzied seal, as a completionist)

                                    This is so weird. Why Millicent, Malenia and Gowry, three characters related to Rot, have something specifically made to "cancel" the Frenzied Flame, who has nothing to do with Rot? I mean, they are two different outer gods, no? Wonder why they are related like this

                                      You don’t have to kill the boss in order to use the needle. You just have to be in a certain section of the boss arena & then it will give you the option to use it. Even during the boss battle. Just have to be in the right area. Not in the very beginning when you first enter.

                                        Unknowingly opened the door to the 3 fingers and was forced to set out on this quest to cure my frenzy. Lol. Strange turn of events.

                                          The way of use explained here is wrong; You MUST defeat the Dragonlord in order to use Miquella's Needle. I almost panicked when first seeing this and it was grey'ed out when trying to use before starting the battle. There is a site of grace the spawns after but idk if you teleport out if its still usable. if anyone tries this, please reply with your result.

                                            So like IF I used the needle is the effect like Millicent? where if I remove the needle I would hypothically have the power of a frenzy god as my own? I would be a tough boss then lol

                                              You can indeed use this after beating the Dragonlord and even after beating the final boss of the game. You just teleport back to the Dragonlord grace, use it, and teleport back and you get all your other ending choices,

                                                    I can't find this in my inventory, I did everything right with Millicent's questline, I chose the gold summon sign and helped her fight off her 4 sisters and even picked up the needle.
                                                    I'm in Placidusax's arena and only now did I notice that the only needle I can find is the unalloyed gold one in the key items section.
                                                    Am I looking in the wrong spot or did the needle disappear?

I already got the rotten sword insignia on a previous playthrough anfd wanted the prosthesis next, but I guess I should've known that "completing her questline" isn't exactly accurate. Sigh, I just wanted to spare Melina and then cure myself, lol.

                                                              I got locked out of the normal ending in my first blind playthrough by doing too much exploring and the game is literally telling me in a note: "seek this needle in the colossal haystack that is the Lands Between to fix it" and its not even possible to get Melina back? Plus it is also possible to get locked out of the other endings anyway, even after that astronomically convoluted side quest, because of a bug in the dragon's arena that From still didn't fix? Man, i love this game, but, yeah, stupid **** like this can really ruin someone's experience. Very dumb design IMO.

So you can backup your save file in c:\users\user\appdata\roaming\eldenring\ER000.sl2, get the frenzied flame ending achievement, then copy back the backed up save, go to placidusax grace, use the needle and get other endings

I realise you would miss out on both talismans this way but it's just a thought, as I'm pretty sure the item has the exact same name and description when you get it from Gowry and when you finally get it back from Millicent...

But, based on this item's description, would anything change if you cured yourself with the needle and then just did the normal ending?

                                                                                            So... spoilers ahead, but you probably don't mind it if you're on this page.

                                                                                            I'm really surprised there isn't an ending related to this. Barring Mohg's palace (which would deserve a similar note), as it stands now, the Haligtree is the only major area of the game that does not lead to any unique ending (if we exclude the pox you can find there, but that's just unrelated). Not to mention how many things you need to get right for this to happen.
                                                                                            You must go to such lenghts to acquire the Frenzied Flame. Then you need to double down on it, or rather, triple down, I'd say, just to undo it. That's 3 hidden areas, 6 boss fights, 3 subquests. And when you get this, you give up a useful talisman. Plus, it does not transfer over to NG+.

                                                                                            Despite all that, as it stands now, the only real benefit you get from this is possibly sparing Melina from her sacrifice. But there's no recognition of the event in any ending besides the very ending in which you don't use this needle, the frenzied flame.
                                                                                            So what's the deal with this? Is it a cut ending? Do they plan to add it in a later patch?

                                                                                            • "We left a way out of the Frenzied Flame ending! You just have to follow some easy to miss questlines and beat some REALLY annoying bosses to get out of it!" :D

                                                                                              • Anonymous

                                                                                                For anyone whose wondering, you CANNOT use this item if you're in the boss arena with a Co-Op partner. I do Co-Op with friends and family a lot, and when we got to the Dragonlord, I tried using the needle and it wouldn't let me. We couldn't figure out why, so I decided to go in by myself and sure enough, it let me use it. So if you're trying to cure it and it's not working, make sure you go in SOLO.

                                                                                                • Anonymous

You are -not- locked out of this unless you kill Millicent (or possibly progressing deep into the game without talking to her)

                                                                                                        • Anonymous

So you cannot stock one ahead of time to save yourself from going through Millicent's Quest. Which I just learned, annoyingly on a run where I intended to go through with the normal or one of the normal endings. AFTER following through with gaining the Frenzy Flame.

                                                                                                          Ah well, at least the Eye Cosmetic actually looks unique...

                                                                                                            Is there another way to burn the thorns without a maiden and without frenzy??

I've been hit multiple times by it since doing so (on my own playthrough and in coop) and take no damage when crucified.

                                                                                                              • Anonymous

                                                                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                                                                  • If you use this to abort the Lord of Frenzied Flame ending, will that prevent Melina's sacrifice at the Forge of the Giants while allowing you to go down one of the better endings?

                                                                                                                    • Anonymous

The description states it is one of multiple needles. The item also has a quantity in your inventory and appears stackable. I have a feeling this has more uses than just reversing the Frenzy ending.

                                                                                                                      • Anonymous
