Here is the Dark Souls II Scholar Of The First Sin Moonlight Greatsword Trophy Guide
This can be a very challenging trophy / achievement to unlock
You need to firstly speak with Benhart just outside where you find and then free Rosabeth of Melfia from her petrified state using a Fragrant Branch of Yore just before the entrance to the Shaded Woods
After you have freed Rosabeth, speak with Benhart again, he will then become available as a summon for several boss fights throughout the game, here in lies the difficulty. You will need to summon Benhart a minimum of 3 times throughout 3 different boss fights on one playthrough, and he MUST NOT DIE in any of these encounters, if he does die, you will be unable to inherit his equipment until the next playthrough making this even more challenging
I strongly recommend you utilise cloud saves before every fight, as this will help you massively should Benhart die
You will need to be human in order to summon, so ensure you have a good supply of Human Effigies, the 3 boss fights you can summon him for are as follows

Prowling Magus

Benharts’ summon sign is in a tent at the Brightstone Cove Tseldora Army campsite, summon him then take down the Prowling Magus boss as quickly as you can, ensuring of course, Benhart stays alive until the conclusion of the battle

Looking Glass Knight

Just outside the fog gate for this boss fight in Drangleic Castle will be Benharts’ summon sign, this fight can be very challenging to keep Benhart alive, try and always stay in between Benhart and the Looking Glass Knight, the problem is Benhart is trying to be very aggressive towards the Knight and usually dies in a few hits. It will be prevalent to sacrifice yourself if this fight is going badly for Benhart which will allow you to retry the fight allowing Benhart to be at full health again

Elana, Squalid Queen

In the Dragon’s Rest area you will face off against Elana, this fight is incredibly challenging and the one that breaks Benharts’ questline for most people. Elana has buckets of health and has the ability to summon very powerful Knights, has very strong AOE attacks and can close range on you very quickly
Benhart will usually die to the Knights that appear whilst you’re trying to deal with Elana. This fight is probably the one fight in the game where managing the enemies’ placement is of the utmost importance, if Benhart starts getting low on health, try and sacrifice yourself / kill Elana quickly as this fight on ng+ and beyond becomes a ridiculous attempt to keep Benhart alive. Good luck with this one, you’ll need it

Once you have successfully kept Benhart alive for these 3 boss fights, you will need the Ashen Mist Heart (speak with the Ancient Dragon in the Dragon Shrine). Go to the Forest of Fallen Giants, head back to where you defeated the Pursuer, head over to the large tree, interact with the tree to access the Memory of Orro, as soon as you’re in the memory, you will see Benhart, talk with him to receive his equipment
Once you have inherited Benharts’ equipment, your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

That’s the guide complete, I hope it helps you get the Dark Souls II Scholar Of The First Sin, Moonlight Greatsword Trophy / Achievement
