Londor Pale Shade Information

"A hostile invader or ally to your cause, wielding the darkness of the Abyss for or against you"


  • Killable
  • Becomes an ally if your relationship with Yuria of Londor is good.
    • Yuria can only be spawned after using Yoel of Londor's "Draw Out True Strength" mechanic 5 times.
    • Gives the Duel Bow gesture after being summoned as a white phantom. Example Video of summoning him for the gesture.
    • Note: if you use the gesture Darkmoon Loyalty, you will receive Duel Bow right afterwards.
  • Becomes an invader if your relationship with Yuria of Londor is disrupted.
    • Your relationship is disrupted by aggroing or killing Yuria, curing the dark sigil, killing Yoel of Londor (before he gives 5 level ups), or by killing Anri of Astora.
    • Both invasions are needed to get the armor set.
  • List of items that refer to this NPC: Manikin Claws, Morion Blade, Pale Shade Set. (references londor pale shades in general)
  • You can recieve his equipment and gesture if you aggro Yuria by hitting her 3 times, run away, kill this invader twice, pay for absolution at Velka's statue, and summon him for Pontiff. Yuria will be friendly afterwards and no quest will be disrupted. Note however, that each invasion must be triggered before defeating the area boss (Abyss Watchers and the Pontiff, respectively) or the Pale Shade will not invade otherwise.
  • If you assisted Sirris in killing Creighton the Wanderer, then you must be invaded by Creighton outside the Church of Yorshka bonfire before the Dark Spirit of Londor will invade you.
  • Does not appear possible after defeating Pontiff Sulyvahn
  • You must be embered for all dark spirit encounters
  • His armor is next to Yuria of Londor after he is killed twice.




  • Can be summoned as an ally for Abyss Watchers, the summon sign is in the corner next to the Farron Keep Perimeter bonfire.
  • Can be summoned as an ally for Pontiff Sulyvahn, the summon sign is in front of a statue right outside the boss fog.
  • Can be summoned as an ally for Soul of Cinder, the summon sign is located halfway between the bonfire and the boss fog.


  • Invades in Farron Keep, near the first bonfire, take a right turn outside and follow the wall towards the basilisks.
  • Invades in Irithyll of the Boreal Valley, past the Silver Knight room, at the top of the first set of stairs.
    • If you assisted Sirris in killing Creighton the Wanderer, then you must be invaded by Creighton outside the Church of Yorshka bonfire before the Dark Spirit of Londor will invade you.



  • Souls: NG (7,196), NG+ (No change)
  • Weapons: Manikin Claws
  • The Pale Shade Set can be found in Firelink Shrine, near the location of Yoel and Yuria, after the Londor Pale Shade invader has been defeated in both Farron Keep and Irithtyll of the Boreal Valley.

      People are having trouble so here.
      Go to faron keep bonfire,
      head out the door,
      take a right,
      keep going through the swamp to the ***** ass curse salamanders.
      You have to fight him in the swamp past where you get iron flesh, and it's a small pain.

        i got the 5 levels from Yoel, went to the bonfire, he died, then Yuria showed up in Firelink. I bought what i need from her, so i aggroed Yuria and went to Farron Keep.
        But this *****ing NPC won´t invade me. First time i reached Farron Keep, he didn´t invade me. I decided to explore the Cathedral and kill the Deacons, maybe it would trigger something. But, no. I returned there and no signal of invasions. Then, i made a backup of my save and killed Yuria, But guess what, he didnt invade me again. And, for the last attempt, i went to Velka statue and paid for my sins ( dammit, 186k souls ). And there was Yuria, non-hostile again. I killed this *****ing ***** again and GUESS ONE MORE TIME, yeah, exactly, F-U-C-K T-H-I-S G-A-M-E .. I really dont know what is going on. I cant kill the Abyss Watchers cause i want the pale set. And i was always embered.

          Starting the questline but not leveling up with Yoel before he dies will make Pale Shade hostile towards you and invade you. It will also get Anri killed at the "wedding".

            So I finally got him to invade me in the swamp and since he's a mastermind assasin he's just standing down there with the basalisks in the mud, casting his spells and attacking the rock wall, I'm testing to see if poison will kill him or if that's just wishful thinking of not having to do any work.

              So I ended up getting killed by him in Farron Keep (git gud), so I decided to come back later. Got invaded again in Irithyll, ended up killing him, then killed the Pontiff. Now he won't invade me in Farron Keep. Did I ***** myself over, does he not respawn after all that?

              • 25 Jan 2017 21:51  

                Okay, so I'm in New Game +, didn't want to level at all (Level 120), I killed Yoel (I did speak to him before doing so however) before killing Deacons and Abyss Watchers. Pale shade wouldn't invade. I then killed the Deacons and got the Doll. Pale Shade still wouldn't invade. I then killed Anri and Horace at Firelink Shrine, and finally got the Pale shade to invade at Farron's Keep, so I'm thinking killing Anri and Horace was the trigger.

                  got the 5 dark sigils from yoel, then i cured them at velka's and then i got embered a farron keep perimeter bonfire and his white sign appeared at the corner and he performed the gesture normally, i may not get the hollow ending but im planning on a second play through anyways

                    Killing Yoel at Firelink before drawing out your true strength or talking to him at all does not cause the Pale Shade to invade you. If you want their set but don't want to level up, you need to kill Anri.

                      It should be noted that if you summon black hand gotthard first, before the abyss watchers, you will be unable to summon the Londor pale shade. (This can be remedied through the use of your black separation crystal.

                        Be aware, do not kill the creature who gives us the 'camaleon' spell, near the bonfire church of yorshka. I do this stupid thing and Pale Shader invades me in the place mentioned.

                        • Yoel23 Jun 2016 01:32  

                          Idk if it's only on NG+ but killing Yoel before getting the dark sigils DID NOT make the Pale Shade invade. I was unable to get it to invade despite having killed Yoel, reloaded the area, and ran the length of the wall 4 different times.

                          • invasion @ irithyll10 Jun 2016 21:33  

                            it's stupid how the pale shade takes out half my health with each hit, very frustrating cuz you're almost @ the shortcut when this ***** invades

                            • Bad relationship30 May 2016 20:17  

                              It should be noted that you cannot ask for absolution until after you kill the Pale Shade, or it will not show up as an invader. It took me longer than I'd care to admit to figure that out.
