Dialogue

 

- When first encountered in the entrance to Shaded Woods

  1. Have you business with me?
    The way yonder's all blocked up you see. By this god-awful statue.
    Heavens above. Who thought it a good idea to put it there!
  2. Ohhhh, I'm in quite the pickle now.
    See that statue? Gives me the willies. Stare at it for long enough, it starts to look alive.
    Ach, It just does nae seem quite right. There are no craftsmen round these parts.
    Hey, you don't think a real-life person was turned to stone, do you?

- Talk after clearing the path to Shaded Woods

  1. What?! Clearing the way was your doing, was it?
    Haah, didn't think you had it in yer pal.
    No no no. That's not like it sounds, you know! It was a pleasant surprise, that's all.
    Name's Benhart. Thanks to you, I can resume my journey.
    If we share the same path, I'm sure that we are gonna meet again.
    I'll repay my debt to you in battle. And I swear it by my sword.
    The road ahead's gonna be long, but I'm here to help. Gah hah hah hah hah!
  2. I am in yer debt.
    It's a true man who honours his debts. And I'll see mine paid.
    I swear it, by my ancient sword.

- When first encountered in Drangleic Castle

  1. Ho! Well met, friend.
    Good to see you well. Yes, hehh hehh, very good indeed.
  2. I journeyed from the distant east to perfect my swordsmanship.
    Legend has it that powerful beings slumber in this land.
    This sword, it's been in my family for generations. And only a real man can wield it true.
    I may face any manner of man or beast, but none shall be a match for my sword. Heh heh heh heh…
  3. This land is a right mess, eh?
    King's gone, and the people have a mad glint in their eyes.
    The land itself is overrun by terrible beasts.
    No better place to test my sword, ey? Heh heh heh heh…

- When first encountered in Forest of the Fallen Giants

  1. Well, we meet again! What you doing here?
    Who'dve thought we'd meet in a place like this.
    Fate just won't let us stay apart, will she? Gah hah hah hah hah hah!
  2. See the old sword's caught your attention? Well, you've a good eye, then.
    Ah, it's been in my family for generations.
    They say it is crafted with moonlight, and we all know what that means, it wards off evil.
    And I would nae trade her for all the riches in the world.
    They say that no man has ever teased oot the sword's true power.
    But in the right hands…Heh heh heh heh heh heh…
  3. I see you've taken a liking to the sword. Well, I applaud you, for you've a sharp eye.
    But this is one sword pal that I will nae be giving up.
    If you still insist on having it…
    Then you will have to pry it from my cold hands! Gah hah hah hah hah hah!
  4. I've a great debt to you. And I'll never forget it.
    I, Benhart, swear by my honour, to aid you in your darkest hour! So nae problem pal.

- When first encountered in Memory of Orro

  1. Oh! Look at you! Old friend!
    I see yer travels weigh upon you yet.
    Just remember, I'm always ready to help.
  2. My homeland is in the far east. A kingdom of honourable fighting men.
    And this sword yet awaits a true man to wield it.
    I know how swords think, you see! Gah hah hah hah!

- When giving equipment to the player
We have outwitted death a good many times.
Huh huh, My dear friend, take these.

- When attacked but not aggroed
Ooph!
(or)
What in bloody…!
(or)
Enough with that!

 - When attacked and aggroed
Very well. I, Benhart, will be honoured to chop you to pieces.

- When killing the player
You knew this would happen…

- When re-encountered after aggroing
You're a sorry waste of life…

- When attacked and health is under 50%
Hey! How dare you!

- When killed
What's done…urgh… Is done…

- Unknown
A man's journey…is never done…

 

 

Trivia

  • The easiest method of obtaining his gear/achievement is widely debated, so multiple methods are mentioned here.
  • Summoning Benhart in Memory of Jeigh to fight the Giant Lord after talking with him in Memory of Orro is perhaps the easiest method to get his gear. To reset and allow another summon in Memory of Jeigh, use an ascetic on The Place Unbeknownst bonfire after killing the Giant Lord on the current intensity. The main issue with this method is that Benhart (and most NPC phantoms for that matter) tends to be incredibly stupid when trying to make him survive a fight (Lucatiel on ng+ Sinner...) , which is problematic in the Memory of Jeigh because of the constant fireballs, rolling statue head, and the damage the Giant Lord inflicts with his skyscraper-esque sword, but if Benhart survives to the end, it is undoubtedly the fastest method.
  • Dying can be used to reset the encounter should Benhart die before you are able to kill the boss. The Homeward Bone, Homeward Miracle, and the Aged Feather can all be used to reset the encounter should Benhart die. Returning you to your last visited bonfire in the process.
  • Alternatively, you can also use Bonfire Ascetics to reset the Prowling Magus and the Congregation boss fight three times to get the items. This is an easy fight where it is unlikely either you or Benhart will die. There is a bit of a distance between the boss and Benhart's summon sign, so the walking back and forth is the longest part. It is also advisable you clear out all the enemies leading from his sign to the boss fight before you summon him, just to be safe. Unfortunately, AI stupidity also comes into play here, as Benhart seems apt to fall off the ledge where the boulders come down, making this method, while easy if done well, incredibly annoying to watch your achievement walk off a ledge multiple times.
  • Bonfire Ascetics can also be used to fight the Looking Glass Knight multiple times. Be sure to equip the Red Eye Ring as the Looking Glass Knight will focus Benhart when he gets low health.
  • As with any NPC phantom, any combination of these methods will result in the desired effect, it just depends on what you believe to be the fight both you and Benhart can survive consistently with increasing difficulty. So long as you and Benhart complete 3 of any of these fights (or 2 of one and 1 of another, etc.) and he survives each, he will reward you with his gear and achievement if spoken to in the area behind the Pursuer fight.

      I wonder how many people have actually asked how Benhart got in the memory of Orro in the first place and also wondered if the statues in the Pursuer Boss fight look strangely similar to Benhart... Probably just coincidences but still something to think about.

        Well, another weird one. Did three bosses with him but He won't Hand over his gear... Just Sits in Orros memory and Talks About his Sword... Will He give it After completing the memory?

          I haven't gotten to the memory of Orro yet. I've spoken with him at all the other locations, yet for some reason, I cannot summon him anywhere. I am human. Can anyone think of a reason he just won't show up?

              I guess he doesn't say anything when you roll up with the real Moonlight Greatsword and do all of its special moves.

                I think FROM meant this character to be named BeRnhart. And not Be-nhart. Probably another lost in translation case.

                  I summoned him once for the magus and congregation boss fight without getting to the boss and died. His summon sign is no longer there, will it respawn?

                      I summoned this guy for the watcher & defender but he died as I finished it... Would this count as a death for him even though this fight does not count towards his quest line? At this point I had 2/3 fights done with him and assumed it wouldn't matter if he died, only that he survived Nash or any other boss
