Ben wanders around Solace and the Northern Plains, but can't be tracked or astraled to. Type "where ben" to get an idea of where he is and hope you know Solace well enough to find him. He's usually in the the marketplace, the Administration building or on the main street. If he's in Northern Plains, then scanning around is probably the best option. He's also been seen in the Unholy Grounds.

Ben has a nasty prog where he crushes your skull with his sword and takes off about 500hp, so keep him disarmed and he can't do it. Ben disarms and gouges. Dragonslicer is a magical weapon, so a nice trick is to summon the desert wraith, which is immune to magic weapons, and use it as a tank. You might need to heal him a bit, but that way you'll only need one cleric (as long as you have three or four hitters) and won't have a repair bill.
