I, Benhart, swear by my honour, to aid you in your darkest hour! So nae problem pal."

— Benhart of Jugo

Benhart of Jugo is a character in Dark Souls II.


Benhart is a proud warrior with a deep belief in living by the sword. He has short, blonde hair and a very thick Scottish accent. The most notable thing about Benhart is the teal greatsword that he always has on his person. His sword, the Bluemoon Greatsword, is his most prized possession, as it is a family heirloom, and he believes it has some hidden potential.

In regards to his personality, Benhart is honorable, and stalwart. He believes that strength is proved through combat, and came to Drangleic in order to test his mettle.


Benhart comes from a long line of great warriors. He was born in the desert land of Jugo and his signature weapon, the Bluemoon Greatsword, is a family heirloom that has been passed for generations amongst the members of his family. Determined to prove that his sword has some hidden potential within it, he travels from land to land to hone his swordsmanship in battle.

During his journey, he found the set of armor he wears during the events of the game. It can be noted that his armor depicts the sigil of a stag similar to the one found in Creighton's armor. This implies that, at some point during his travels, Benhart might have traveled to Mirrah and acquired his equipment there.

Eventually, Benhart ended up in Drangleic. In this land, he met the merchants Maughlin; of the western land of Volgen, and Magerold of Lanafir. Although both merchants were curious about Benhart's sword, both of them think that his weapon might be a replica of a certain legendary sword.


When certain conditions are met, Benhart of Jugo can be summoned as an ally for the Prowling Magus, Looking Glass Knight, Giant LordThrone Watcher and Defender, Nashandra and Elana boss fights.

Benhart is first found near Majula, outside of the Shaded Woods. When approached by the player, he is sitting and contemplating what to do, as the way forward is blocked by the petrified Rosabeth. When Rosabeth is unpetrified by using a Fragrant Branch of Yore, he thanks the player for clearing the way and hopes to the see them again. At this point, one can learn the "Joy" gesture from him, and it will be possible to summon him as an ally before the Prowling Magus and Congregation boss fight, in Brightstone Cove Tseldora.

He can then be found next to the bonfire, past the Dragonriders, in Drangleic Castle. He remarks on the discord of the land, before changing locations. He can then be summoned to assist with the Looking Glass Knight encounter.

Next, he will move to the ramparts, past The Pursuer boss fight area, in the Forest of Fallen Giants. He will state that he will assist the player in any challenge. He will then remark on the lineage of his weapon and its apparent hidden potential.

If the Ashen Mist Heart is possessed, he can be found in the Memory of Orro near his position on the ramparts. He can be summoned to fight the Giant Lord. This is also the spot were he will give the player his equipment if his questline has been completed.

Benhart drops the Bluemoon Greatsword upon death. If his sword is taken to Maughlin the Armorer, he will note that the sword is a fake; the true sword being the Moonlight Greatsword.

To get this Achievement/Trophy, the player must summon Benhart and have him survive a minimum of three boss fights. He can be summoned for the following boss fights:

Players can also use a Bonfire Ascetic to respawn a boss and then summon Benhart again. After defeating at least three bosses alongside him, Benhart will thank the player and give them his equipment in the Memory of Orro.

To be the most efficient in regards to souls (since summoning anyone, NPC or player, lowers the souls gained for the host by 25%) it is best to re-fight the Prowling Magus and Congregation using the aforementioned Bonfire Ascetics since it has by far the lowest amount of souls dropped, only exceeding the drop from the Looking Glass Knight at higher New Game+/Bonfire Intensity levels (Prowling Magus drops 28k souls on NG+7, Looking Glass Knight drops 25,5k souls on NG).

Note that since Benhart doesn't move or disappear from his final spot in the Memory of Orro it is possible to delay finishing 3 fights with his help until the end of the game.


  • If killed where he is first found in Majula, his gravestone will appear in the same spot.
