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.


This section contains bugs related to Benkongerike. Before adding a bug to this list, consider the following:

  1. Confirm all bugs with other editors on the talk page before adding them below.
  2. Always try reloading an old save first, before asking for assistance.
  3. Do not discuss possible bug fixes or origins. Leave those and all other first-person-anecdotes on the talk page, not the article.
  4. Always add  360  ,  PS3  , or  PC   to clarify which system the bug appears on.
  • When attempting to change the pedestals for the puzzle in Benkongerike Great Hall, one may be unable 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 one 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, one will 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 one is spawned back to the beginning, work through the area again and keep trying until one gets spawned on the other side.
  •  PS3   When the Black Book: Untold Legends quest is the active objective, Clairvoyance may lead the Dragonborn to the escape passage near the book, even when they first enter the area (which is not useful from the other direction)
