Do you want to reverse the Frenzied Flame ending in Elden Ring?
Inheriting the Frenzied Flame in Elden Ring unlocks an ending you’ll get locked into. To escape this fate, you’ll have to do many things.
The Frenzied Flame is something that many players might not encounter over multiple playthroughs. The Three Fingers, whose embrace holds the Frenzied and the future Lord of Chaos in its thrall, is located deep below Leyndell.
Inheriting this maddening destructive flame unlocks a new ending that plunges the world of Elden Ring into an Age of Chaos.
This is also the only ending in the game that will lock you into a choice. Other endings in Elden Ring can be selected interchangeably after beating the final boss of the game. However, if you inherit the Frenzied Flame, you are doomed to destroy the world.
If you don’t want to end your journey in this saddening sequence, we got you covered.
Today, we will show you how to reverse the Frenzied Flame ending in Elden Ring.
Let’s get started!
Initiate Millicent’s Questline
Millicent is a red-haired NPC that can be found in the Church of the Plague in Caelid. Gowry will hint to you about her location if you see him first. Once you’ve talked to Millicent, return to Gowry, and he’ll give you more information about Millicent’s condition.
The item that Millicent is asking you to find is the Unalloyed Gold Needle, which will help her overcome the Rot.
This is also the same item you’ll use later on in the game to undo your choice to inherit the Frenzied Flame in Elden Ring. For now, make your way towards the Swam of Aeonia and look for the boss named Commander O’Neil.
Defeat Commander O’Neal
Once you’ve found Commander O’Neal, you’ll have to defeat him to advance this mission. Commander O’Neil is not considered a tough boss in Elden Ring, but he doesn’t fight fair and square.
This boss in Elden Ring constantly summons mobs to shoot and chase his target. Riding Torrent during the encounter makes this boss easier to overcome.
Once you’ve slain Commander O’Neil, he’ll drop the Commander’s Standard and the Unalloyed Gold Needle. Go back to Millicent afterward and give her the needle to start the process of curing her affliction.
Now, rest at the Church of the Plague Site of Lost Grace to reload the area.
After refreshing the area, you’ll find Millicent standing up in her previous location. Go through her entire dialogue and reload the area again and start making your way towards Gowry’s Shack, where you’ll find Millicent alone.
Defend Millicent at The Haligtree
After speaking to Millicent in Gowry’s Shack, you can find her at the Erdtree-Gazing Hill in the Altus Plateau. Speak with her here and go to the Shaded Castle overworld dungeon to obtain Valkyrie’s Prosthesis.
Head back to Millicent and give her the Prothesis, then go to the northeast corner of Altus Plateau to defeat the Godskin Apostle in Windmill Village.
Speak with Millicent in this area and head towards the Mountaintops of Giants, where you’ll find her once more at the Ancient Snow Valley Ruins Site of Grace. After speaking to her, she’ll move to the Prayer Room Site of Grace in the Haligtree.
Go through her entire dialogue here and backtrack to the pest-ridden area before the Drainage Channel Site of lost Grace to slay the Ulcerated Tree Spirit.
Two summon signs will show up in this location. One is to help Millicent, and the other is to invade her. Help Millicent fend off her attackers and refresh the area to find her sitting on the shore.
She’ll give you the Unalloyed Gold Needle afterward, which you must take to Malenia’s boss room.
Use the Unalloyed Gold Needle
For this part, you’ll have to defeat Malenia to spawn the large lotus-like flower in her boss room. Unfortunately, this task is quite difficult and will require some time and effort.
Once she is downed, refresh this area and walk up to the large flower in the middle of the room. Use the Unalloyed Gold Needle that was given to you by Millicent on the flower to get Miquella’s Needle.
Head to Crumbling Farum Azula afterward and head down to the very bottom of the airborne ruins. This is a bit of a maze, but you’ll know you’re in the right place when the secret boss battle begins.
After the boss is defeated, use Miquella’s Needle on yourself within the boss area, and you’ll no longer be held in the thrall of the Three Fingers.
