An intricately crafted needle of unalloyed gold. Once snapped in half, it has been repaired by Sage Gowry.

"Now, all you need to do is deliver the needle to Millicent, convalescing in the church atop the cliff just beyond Sellia." 

 

Where to find Unalloyed Gold Needle in Elden Ring

The Unalloyed Gold Needle can be found in the following location:

 

Elden Ring Unalloyed Gold Needle Use

  • Unalloyed Gold Needle can be used to ward away the meddling of Outer Gods
  • Returning the Unalloyed Gold Needle to the Scarlet Aeonia left after Malenia, Blade of Miquella's fight will grant the player Miquella's Needle and a Somber Ancient Dragon Smithing Stone.
    • The Unalloyed Gold Needle that grants Miquella's Needle only works after finishing Millicent's questline. Trying to return the repaired needle to the Scarlet Aeonia without giving it to Millicent (and thus starting her questline proper) won't work.
    • After finishing Millicent's questline, and getting the Unalloyed Gold Needle back, the description changes to: 
      An intricately crafted needle of unalloyed gold.
      Removed by Millicent from her flesh. Bears no trace of befouled blood, but is faintly moist with dew.
      "There is something I must return to Malenia. The dignity, the sense of self, that allowed her to resist the call of the scarlet rot."

Elden Ring Unalloyed Gold Needle Trivia

  • The repair carried out by Gowry is not perfect, since a reddish material is used to reattach it.

      "Unalloyed gold", in other words, pure, of Miquella's design. Miquella's "curse" is that of purification, the needle only possesses a fraction of his power that's why it can only keep the Rot at bay. It purifies the "meddling of the outer gods" like the Rot and the other needle that heals the Frenzy. It's unalloyed, because it is still gold, but free from the influence of the Golden Order and the Great Will.
      I think, there should have been an ending where you help the Haligtree Order, kind of a huge opportunity missed. I think there should have been the option to help the three late-game shardbearers.

        Unalloyed Gold Needle (Broken Ver.)

        Sage Gowry has designs for this needle.

          Sadly since I’m pretty sure I gave the “potion” to Millicent, not knowing it was poison, I am locked out of getting the needle and will now have to burn the world since I got the 3 Fingers curse or whatever it’s called, this is why you don’t play games completely blind.

              Follows every step as carefully as possible...defeats Malenia and excitedly waits for flower bloom after fight to use unalloyed gold needle...no flower bloom? How the f...did I screw this up? Runs around in a panic looking for flower blooms in other rooms, re-read every step, continues to run around in a panic...contemplates throwing controller through flat screen TV and sending Fromsoft hate mail...reloads area in one last attempt at finding flower bloom before throwing gaming in the garbage...oh, look...what a pretty flower.

                Question. Does removing the Frenzied Flame give an alternate ending involving Melina? Or is it just an out for people who went through the questline for the items and don't want to burn the world?

                  There needs to be added the post-Millicent questline version of this Unalloyed Gold Needle. It has a new portrait and description.

                    Since I killed millicent I can't get needle back?
                    Bullsh*t! fix your damn game so we dont miss out on things Fromsoft.

                      Does this carry over to Ng+? So if I completed Millicent's questline and got this but did not turn it I to miquellas needle (which does not carry over to Ng+) can I keep this for the next game?

                        Worth noting that the only way to get the needle back from Millicent is to save her from the invaders at the end of her quest line. If you invade and kill her, she turns into the flower and you can't get the needle back.

                          Can the wiki add the item descriptions for when the needle is repaired, and when it is received in Elphael

                            Anybody know if you can skip Millicent's entire questline once Gowry gives you back the needle by taking it directly to Malenia's Scarlet Aeonia?

                              I am still thinking about what Millicent wanted to return to Malenia. It must be the needle but it can't just be the needle. For some reason I keep thinking that she was born of the Rot but was born more Humane. Feels like she was a piece of Malenia that wanted to return to become whole.

                                Is anyone able to confirm or deny if it can be used on the other bloomed scarlet flower through the other door near Malenia’s bonfire?

                                  If you side against millicent at the end of her quest, you seem to lose the ability to get this back from her (she gives it to you if you choose her side), with the tradeoff being her prosthetic.

                                      After turning this into Miquella's needle, take it to the dragonlord grace site in Faram Azula. There, you can consume it to rid yourself of the Fenzied flame, allowing you to choose the other endings.

                                        Important note: if you do this quest after the melania, you can take this to the boss room to complete the quest and get the upgrade material as well.

                                          i was forgot mini boss and Millicent choise, i was go defeat malenia first and went i remember Millicent, i come to defeat mini boss and not have choise help Millicent there, and i cant take needle, Is there any other way to get it back?

                                            I have the option to invade Millicent’s word also next to the golden summon sign. Haven’t seen any info about it.

                                            • So I want to get all the endings using the same save file but right now I got the frenzied flame thing, how does this work? Is Miquella's needle like an usable item or do I get rid of the frenzied flamer right after I return the unalloyed needle to the flower?

                                                If you can't give Boc the needle yet at the East Capital Rampart site, go get some demigod armor. I bought Radahn's set.

                                                He'll apologise for not being able to alter it and then you'll have the option to give him the needle.

                                                • After completing Millicent's questline, you can retrieve this needle and re-use it on Miquella's flower to receive Miquella's Needle in return, as well as a Somber Ancient Dragon Smithing Stone.
