Pale Shade Set is an Armor in Dark Souls 3.

Gold mask worn by those who kill in the name of the Sable Church of Londor.  

A faint, kindly smile is bound to its surface, giving them the moniker Harlots of Death.  

What lies beneath that expression, however, is nothing more than the face of a darkly shriveled Hollow.  

Attire worn by those who kill in the name of the Sable Church of Londor.  

The Pale Shades of the Sable Church are all undying Hollows, giving rise to much fear and contempt.  

Their fight is one of neither honor nor exaltation, yielding nothing but withered moans. 

Location/Where to Find

  • After angering Yuria (hit her, kill her, kill Yoel, kill Anri's Assassin etc) you need to defeat the Londor Pale Shade invader (you need to be embered and not have defeated the area bosses in order to be invaded) in both Farron Keep (go to Farron Keep bonfire, exit and turn right, by the basilisks) and Irithyll of the Boreal Valley (go to Distant Manor bonfire, go through the sewers he will invade on a stairway near a shortcut), then go back to Firelink Shrine (where Yuria/Yoel were) and the set will be there.

      Important info: I was after this set with my last build and got the 5 points from Yoel, killed Yuria right after she appeared in Firelink, got Pale Shade to invade me in Farron Keep but he/she was not invading me in Irithyll. I helped Sirris right in the beginning and as soon as I reached Yoshka's Church, I talked to Anri, got the gesture and killed the pilgrim. When I went to the area of the Pale Shade invasion, nothing happened several times (I kept boning out and coming back and didn't get invaded. The trick seems to be: If you helped Sirris to kill Creighton in her world, you need to be invaded by Creighton in your world and kill him in order for the Pale Shade to invade. Did this and it worked (I almost deleted the character to start over again lol).

      • Don't have to level up11 Sep 2016 22:15  

        I got Yoel, killed deacons, got invaded by Heysel at that god-awful swamp, killed Yoel, Anri, and Horace at Firelink, went back to where I was invaded by Heysel, and got invaded by Paleshade.

        • You only have to kill Yoel10 Aug 2016 19:55  

          I killed Yoel without doing anything with him other than chatting. Was totally unhollowed with 0 dark sigils. Went to swamp and no Shade invasion but Heysel invaded me. Killed her and wandered around a bit, killed stray demon, went back to firelink. Came back to swamp and got invaded by Shade. It might be that Heysel is queued up to invade first, so you have to kill her, then leave and come back. Maybe killing a mini-boss helped trigger something. In any case, all you have to do is kill Yoel to get Farron invasion. Yuria never even made an appearance and Anri is fine.

            • You Don't need to lvl to get pale shade set!23 Jul 2016 23:22  

              so i can verify having just gotten it that you CAN just kill Yoel upon him getting to firelink without lvling and still get paleshade set. I killed him and then went to farron keep. didn't get paleshade invasion so i went and got the doll. still no paleshade. Then i killed Horace and Anri at the road of sacrifices and he finally showed up. (caution) you have to do all this while the abyss watchers are still alive. hope this helps because i was starting to worry for a bit there.

              • Crap22 Jun 2016 05:49  

                So I have every armor piece in the game but this one. I read that if you kill yield I get invaded by the shade. So once I brought him to fire link I killed him. Some how I didn't read that you have to wait till the deacons of the deep before killing him. Crap.

                  I've lurked in the shadows of this forum since I first googled for help in dark souls 2...I had never asked for anything...<br/><br/>Until now...I have tried getting this set a couple of times now and I seem to fail everytime...I just want to make a white Mage build from final fantasy..would anyone be able to trade this with me on PSN?

                  • broken?31 May 2016 12:05  

                    i got both invasions, and when i defeated the second paleshade in irithyl nothing dropped.... i killed yuria, and the pilgrim in the chapel. something either messed with the trigger, or the items didn't drop as intended.

                    • How?20 May 2016 18:43  

                      If I can't kill the Abyss Watchers without getting Yuria, how am I supposed to anger her? I killed the Abyss Watchers and killed Yuria, but it says I cant kill the invading Pale Shades.

                      • wtf13 May 2016 15:07  

                        I killed Yoel as soon as I got him into Firelink, Proceeded to Farron keep and killed the shade. Once I got to Irithyl I killed the assassin (something associated with pissing off Yuria and getting the shade to show up, which worked on a previous playthrough) but now the shade just refuses to show up in Irithyl

                        • Really From13 May 2016 03:34  

                          An obscure invasion like this, where you're required to deliberately anger a NPC who is essential for an alternate ending. You guys are making this game so much less fun

                          • Adding a condition on "killing Yoel"11 May 2016 15:35  

                            For she to invade, after killing Yoel, you need to have the peculiar doll from the Deacons of The Deap.

                            • Londor Pale Shade Sword11 May 2016 12:30  

                              When you summon the Londor Pale Shade in Farron Keep, to help you fight the Abyss Watchers, he is wielding a one-handed sword. Does anyone know if you can get this sword and what it's name is? I cannot seem to find any information about it anywhere.<br/><br/>Thanks

                              • My edit got removed even if relevant, useful and needed?10 May 2016 13:40  

                                "Killing Yoel will also trigger the Pale Shade of Londor to become an invader, there is no need to Draw Out True Strength to obtain the set (convenient for characters who need the set but don't want to level any more). This will of course prevent Yuria from appearing at Firelink Shrine and terminate the quest line." A lot of people on Reddit are willing to trade for this set because they actually don't know you can get it without having to level up. Please add it back.

                                • No need for Yuria or Dark Sigils06 May 2016 00:15  

                                  Got this *****er to invade in both areas by simply killing Yoel and giving the handmaid the Hollow Ashes. <br/>That means kill Emma and access Lothric Castle early and get to Untended Graves before you kill Abyss Watchers so that he invades in the Keep.<br/><br/>Also killed the assassin in Anri's quest route to be sure and he invaded in Irithyl and I got the set after that.

                                  • asdSA04 May 2016 17:36  

                                    Does she invade twice even if you never met Yuria that playthrough? Its annoying that this quest forces you to level 5 times, I'm already Sl120...

                                    • Pale Shade of Londor29 Apr 2016 10:21  

                                      Pale Shade of Londor will always drop the Manakin claws first, wherever you encounter him. But if you encounter him for the first time in Distant Manor, you won't be able to obtain the Pale Set for that playthrough.
