For the cave of the same name in Bloodmoon, see Benkongerike.

Benkongerike is a cave located in The Elder Scrolls V: Dragonborn.

It is home to many Rieklings, a Word Wall for the shout Cyclone, and mysteriously, the Black Book: Untold Legends is in its depths.

It can be found to the southeast of Saering's Watch or to the northwest of the Headwaters of Harstrad at about the halfway point between both locations.

Notable ItemsEdit


  • The puzzle solution is Eagle, Whale, Whale, Snake.
  • There is an expert-locked door between two barred gates, the key for the door can be pulled to the Dragonborn using Telekinesis, it lays behind the left bars. There's a chest and Dragon Language: Myth no More in the room.
  • Once entering the cell "Benkogrike Great Hall", under a riekling shelter there is a large number of copies of the infamous Lusty Argonian Maid books.


  • When attempting to change the pedestals for the puzzle in Benkongerike Great Hall you may not be able to move them. Reloading a previous save will fix this.
  • When exiting the room where Black Book: Untold Legends is, sometimes the floor around the entrance of the cave will not load in the area, thus not allowing you to leave the cave. This can be fixed by reloading a save before exiting the room.
  • Sometimes when entering the cave there is missing floor right on the beginning. This can be fixed by reloading a save before entering.
  • When crouching while walking, getting too close to the stone head near the Riekling hut on the second floor of the puzzle room, in the Great Hall, you'll end up on the head stuck between it and the roof, reloading a previous save might be the only way this can be fixed.
  •  360   When entering the area to the main hall, sometimes the floor may disappear.
    •  360(fix)   Jump through and try to continue anyway. If you are spawned back to the beginning, work through the area again and keep trying until you are spawned on the other side.
  •  PS3   When the Black Book: Untold Legends quest is the active objective, Clairvoyance may lead you to the escape passage near the book, even when you first enter the area (which is not useful from the other direction)
