He is first encountered near the Foot of the High Wall bonfire in the Undead Settlement. From there, he moves to Firelink Shrine. He can be found in the basement, at the end of the corridor on the west wing.
Yoel is first encountered near the beginning of the Undead Settlement, at the edge of a crumbled bridge. The only survivor among many other less fortunate pilgrims like him, he seems enlightened to be in the presence of the Champion of Ash and asks if he could be allowed to be at their service. Agreeing to his plead will make him move to the Firelink Shrine. There, he can be found on the lowermost level, at the end of the right corridor, where he will sell diverse sorceries to the player.
He will also allow the player to level up for every Dark Sigil exchanged with him.

- Teaches the "Beckon" gesture upon exhausting his dialogue in Firelink Shrine.
- Upon reaching the Catacombs of Carthus, Yoel will die and his services will no longer be available, ending his questline prematurely unless the player has gotten all five Dark Sigils from him.
- Before setting foot into the catacombs, the player may opt to complete other areas and level up as much as possible, then start leveling up with Yoel in order to make the levels he gives have the highest value in souls possible.
- Yoel dies exactly the moment the "Catacombs of Carthus" banner appears on the screen, so it is perfectly safe to fight the Abyss Watchers beforehand and use the bonfire that appears after the battle, as long as the player does not descend the staircase that opens in that room.
