      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.

          • Dual Bow Gesture26 Jun 2016 15:39

            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.

                  • Not showing up27 May 2016 15:52

                    I didn't do the dark sigil thing so I decided I may as well try to get this guy as an invader. Problem is he hasn't invaded in either of the locations mentioned. I already killed Creighton when he invaded me outside the church which it says you're supposed to do.<br/><br/>I did hear somewhere else that if you kill Pontiff Sulyvahn before this guy invades you then he won't show up at all. Is that true?

                      can we talk about why this douchebag does so much damage? I mean in my experience he literally does the most single hit damage of any enemy in NG outside of some boss grab attacks.

                      • usurpation of the fire ending10 May 2016 04:11

                        It may be possible to get this set and the Usurper ending in the same playthrough. If you heal the Dark Sigil or kill and essential NPC, Yuria will leave. But I've aggro'd Yuria of Londor and the shade appeared in Farron. Then I asked forgiveness at Velka's statue and Yuria questline continued as normal. If you repeat this procedure at irithyll to get the second invasion, it is likely, though untested, that the set will appear and Yuria will not leave the shrine.

                        • Invasion locations07 May 2016 12:01

                          I was invaded by Londor Pale Shade in Farron Keep where the swamp gets deeper and there are several basilisks just to the right of the bonfire on my second playthrough, where I spent the entire game in ember form. I had been invaded by and killed Heysel elsewhere already, but in my most recent playthrough where I skipped Heysel I was invaded by him there instead. So perhaps there are any number of locations where either can invade you, with a priority on Heysel (or just a coin flip)?

                          • Hollowing Requirement?27 Apr 2016 01:01

                            I think you might have to be at zero hollowing to see his sign at Farron Keep Perimeter. I refreshed the area four or five times with sixteen hollowing (immediately after death farming for Yoel) and didn't get him to pop until after I reset my hollowing at Velka.
