      for those still having trouble triggering the key, if you have the tongue and killed the greatwood or got the bonfire, simply teleport to any area then return. you dont have to quite the game or anything.

        You do not need to kill the curse rotted greatwood to get the lift key. I'm not sure what co-requirements make this the case, but I have obtained the lift key from here later in the game (Irithyll Dungeon) by simply talking to him in the shrine.

          Just git gud and kill Leon he carries like 3 flasks, and he'll even try to use a fourth if you get him low. Super easy enemy. I recommend straightsword.

            If anyone is still having problems triggering his key dialogue, try attempting to open the door and talk to him again. The "it's locked" notification seems to do the trick.

              I had to quit the game while standing in front of him, then load the save, that triggered the key dialogue immediately.... glitchy

                I had met all the requirements several save and load cycles prior but talking to him still would not trigger the dialoge to give me the key. I quit the game, while standing in front of leonard, then loaded the save game (spawned me at the same spot) and it triggered the dialoque and him giving me the key....

                  You guys do understand that you need to bring him a pale tounge in order to get the lift chamber key. Once you do this you can go down the lift to fight the darkwraith.

                    I lit the appropriate bonfire and killed the rotted tree. Leon hard doesn't offer anything other than the Cracked Red Eye Orb any suggestions?

                      I didnt have the key and was really far. It was the pale tongue that was missing. Without it Leonhard wont appear.

                          He gave me the key before I even encountered the Curse-Rotted Greatwood, so that's not a real requirement.
