In Elden Ring, you’ll find a wide range of characters that will share their plight with you, most of these will have Quests that span multiple locations. This page will detail where you can find Gowry and complete his Questline.
First Meeting - Gowry’s Shack
Once you reach Caelid, follow the road to the southeast and once you reach an intersection leading south towards Redmane Castle, head northeast instead and you’ll be on the path towards Sellia, Town of Sorcery. Before you reach the town however, you’ll find a shack on your right, head there to find the Sage Gowry.
He’ll offer to divulge the secrets of Sellia and how to break their barriers, but first you must assist him with a task. There’s a woman by the name of Millicent who is in dire need of help, and you’ll need to retrieve an Unalloyed Gold Needle found in the Aeonia Swamp. Head there, and you’ll find the Inner Aeonia Site of Grace to the north, rest up and then as you enter the heart of the swamp to the south, you’ll need to defeat Commander O’Neil. Consider using your horse for this battle, the arena is open and it will allow you to close the distance on him.
Once you defeat Commander O’Neil, you’ll obtain the Unalloyed Gold Needle which you should hand over to Gowry in exchange for the Sellia’s Secrets Note. He’ll need some time to fix the needle, so refresh the area by using a Site of Grace and return to him to obtain the now fixed Unalloyed Gold Needle. At this point, you must progress Millicent’s Questline until she has moved from the Church of Plague to Gowry’s Shack, and then on to her third location.

You can also inform Gowry that Millicent visited while he was absent. You must then once again progress Millicent’s Quest until you hand over the Valkyrie’s Prosthesis to her in the Altus Plateau. Return to Gowry at this point and speak with him to update him on Millicent’s progress on her journey. He’ll also add the Pest Threads Incantation to his list of wares as thanks for keeping him in the loop. At this point, you can return to him after each visit with Millicent to keep him updated, this is entirely optional.
Final Meeting - Gowry’s Shack
At the very end of Millicent’s Questline, you’ll be forced into a decision, help Millicent defeat her sisters or alternatively invade her and defeat her. If you chose to aid Millicent, you’ll find Gowry in despair at his shack, no longer operating as a merchant. At this point, you should choose to kill him to obtain Gowry’s Bell Bearing and the Flock’s Canvas Talisman. If you defeated Millicent, when you return to Gowry, you’ll already find him dead in his shack, offering the same rewards. Regardless of your final decision here, Gowry’s fate will always be death.
