If you can defeat her, you can claim her Great Rune–but you’ll have to find her first, and doing so is no easy task.

You’re not the first to go looking for Malenia or her brother, Miquella, in fact. Sir Gideon Ofnir the All-Knowing, the Tarnished knight you find in the Roundtable Hold, has been trying to locate the whereabouts of these two demigods for some time. He knows they can probably be found at Miquella’s Haligtree, a special, holy site–but he doesn’t know where it is or how to get to it. He wants the information so badly that he was willing to wipe out an entire village to get it.
