A warrior originally found sitting on the path between Majula and the Shaded Woods. Benhart came to Drangleic from a far eastern land called Jugo. He is quite attached to his sword, the Bluemoon Greatsword (not to be confused with the Moonlight Greatsword) which he states has been passed along through his family for generations. He is very proud of his heritage and sword, although it is speculated by Magerold of Lanafir that the sword itself is unfortunately a fake.
Before the entrance to the area, sitting on the path waiting for someone to clear the path. After opening the path, he teaches the player the "Joy" gesture.
Sitting next to the Central Castle bonfire.
Memory of Orro
Sitting right in front of the player's spawn, next to the stairs.
Brightstone Cove Tseldora
At the Royal Army Campsite in one of the nearby tents.
Throne of Want
To the left of the fog wall.
Between some rubble on the opposite side of the room from the fog door.
- Can be summoned for various boss fights.
- When storyline is completed, he will give you his gear: Benhart's Set and the Bluemoon Greatsword
To complete Benhart's questline, you must:
- Exhaust all of his dialogue in all four encounters with him.
- Summon him at least three times for boss fights and have him survive the boss fight.
- NOTE: You can win the three boss fights by battling the same boss multiple times by the use of a Bonfire Ascetic. For example, you could have him fight Prowling Magus & Congregation twice and then Looking Glass Knight once and that would count as three wins needed for him to give you the equipment.
Benhart is first encountered at the entrace to the Shaded Woods where he speaks to you about a statue that is blocking his path. You will need a Fragrant Branch of Yore to unpetrify the statue who turns out to be Rosabeth of Melfia. Speak to him after unpetrifying Rosabeth and he will thank you and plea to help you in your journey. He can now be summoned for help.
If you continue past the Shaded Woods you will eventually end up in Brightstone Cove Tseldora. His summon sign is found in a tent which has a target dummy. It is recommended to clear the path to the Prowling Magus & Congregation fog gate before summoning him, as he can fall off a cliff or get crushed by the boulders when chasing after enemies.
Next he can be encountered in Drangleic Castle next to the Central Castle bonfire. Exhaust his dialogue here to be able to summon him for the Looking Glass Knight boss fight. His summon sign is located right in front of the boss fog gate.
His next hangout is in the Forest of Fallen Giants right next to one of the fallen giants past the Pursuer's boss arena. After exhausting his dialogue he will go inside the giant right next to him and enter Memory of Orro. Speaking to him in the Memory allows him to be summoned in Memory of Jeigh for the Giant Lord boss fight. Be warned, summoning Captain Drummond for the Giant Lord prevents you from summoning Benhart. He will stay in Memory of Orro, he will not move or disappear.
His last summon sign is right outside of the fog gate in Throne of Want. He can be summoned for both the Throne Defender and Throne Watcher and Nashandra boss fights, though only the Nashandra boss fight counts towards the three required fights.
You can summon Benhart for the DLC boss Elana, Squalid Queen. This also counts for his quest line.
