"Somehow, I've failed to die as was ordained. Well, perhaps my calling lies elsewhere."
— Yoel of Londor

Yoel of Londor is a character and merchant in Dark Souls III. He is voiced by David Sterne.


He is first encountered near the Foot of the High Wall bonfire in the Undead Settlement. From there, he moves to Firelink Shrine. He can be found in the basement, at the end of the corridor on the west wing.


Yoel is first encountered near the beginning of the Undead Settlement, at the edge of a crumbled bridge. The only survivor among many other less fortunate pilgrims like him, he seems enlightened to be in the presence of the Champion of Ash and asks if he could be allowed to be at their service. Agreeing to his plea will make him move to Firelink Shrine. There, he can be found on the lowermost level, at the end of the right corridor past Greirat of the Undead Settlement, where he will sell an assortment Sorceries to the player.

Selecting the "Talk" option while in his interaction menu will teach the player the "Beckon" gesture.

Yoel has a secondary mission, which is part of Yuria of Londor's questline. By selecting the "Draw Out True Strength" option, Yoel will allow the player to level up without paying a soul cost, in exchange for also placing a Dark Sigil within the player's inventory. At this point, every time the player dies, their Hollowing level will increase based on the number of Dark Sigils they possess. At 2, 6, 12 and 15 Hollowing, Yoel will again present the player with the option to level up for free, granting them an additional Dark Sigil each time up to a maximum of 5. At this point, the next time the player reloads Firelink Shrine, Yoel will die, and in his place will be Yuria of Londor.

  • Upon reaching the Catacombs of Carthus, Yoel will die and his services will no longer be available, ending his questline prematurely unless the player has gotten all five Dark Sigils from him.
    • Yoel dies exactly the moment the "Catacombs of Carthus" banner appears on the screen, so it is perfectly safe to fight the Abyss Watchers beforehand and use the bonfire that appears after the battle, as long as the player does not descend the staircase that opens in that room.
