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.

      What if I helped Anri, but killed Sirris? Also, I forgot to get invaded at Farron Keep, but he invaded at Irithyll and I got the claws. Where do I get his set then?

        Many people (including the info on this page) have said you can get this set and do Yuria's questline by aggroing her and then paying for absolution. I did this exactly as it says on this page. Aggro Yuria and kill pale shade in farron keep, pay to get her happy again, then aggro her again and kill pale shade the second time, and pay to get her cool with you again. I did this all before pontiff. I then summoned pale shade for pontiff as I was told that is also key to make this trick work. Pale Shade survived the boss fight and everything went down the way I was told to expect. However, the set never showed up. Does anyone know if this was patched as of 2019? I have also watched videos of people doing this, but the one thing I have noticed in all the videos I have seen where people picked up the set, is that Yuria was no longer present in Firelink when they got the set. I have not seen a single video where someone does the method described and still had Yuria at the shrine when they got the set. So for me, this seems to be a inconclusive and based on conjecture. Anyone have any insight into this? Thank you in advance for your time.

          i *****ing hate the requirement about npcs that they can be triggered before some bosses. For example if you forget about only that invasion before abyss watchers you need to play the whole game again for loot. It's really annoying

              Would this alternate approach work for getting both equipment and gesture in one go: Summon Londor Pale Shade at Abyss Watchers to get the Duel Bow gesture, but do NOT beat the Abyss Watchers. Then go aggro Yuria and get invaded twice by Londor Pale Shade to get the equipment. After that, you can either absolve your sins to continue with Yuria's other stuff, or not.

                For the Pontiff boss, I summoned the guy then died in the fight, then the summon sign didn't appear again so like can you only summon him once or something?

                  Should be added that you need to exhaust Hawkwood's dialogue for him to invade in Farron Keep. I'm in NG+3 and killed Yoel as soon as I saw him and then went straight to Farron Keep and turned to the right where he should invade, but he did not. Teleported to Farron Keep again and even walked all the way through the Basilisk area until I reached the Keep Ruins bonfire, but no Paleshade. Googled it and found a post of someone having the same problem but talking to Hawkwood fixed it and I can confirm it did.

                      this guy just doesn't invade me in farron keep. I'm embered, i haven't killed abyss watchers, i'm not following the hollow questline and i've checked the entire area where there are basilisks in farron keep and still no invasion. Any advice?

                          isn't "he" a she? At least from the description of this set I get the impression that the Pale Shade is a woman.

                            I thought he was a real invader, so I sat by the church bonfire for about 45 minutes on my phone then fought and died to the boss

                              i tried this today and can not confirm it working.

                              Hit yuria until she aggro'ed
                              Killed londor pale shade in the swamp
                              Killed abyss watchers
                              Killed londor pale shade in
                              Payed for absolution
                              Summoned londor pale shade for Pontiff
                              Killed Pontiff
                              Continued normaly through the game until i reached the area where the set should be located at (in untended graves)
                              No set to be found

                              Either the order of actions is not correct, or this tip doesn't work (anymore).

                                Does he just stop showing up in Farron Keep if you progress past a certain point? I got him to Invade in Irithyll, but try as I might, I can not get this fellow to show up in Farron.

                                So here I sit. Quite in a pickle.

                                  So, I was fighting the Abyss Watchers and had summoned Londor Pale Shade, but oddly enough, they had the rocky buff appearance of having used Havel's Shield?

                                  Either I got played and that was an actual player, or the Pale Shade has some new tricks.

                                    It is possible to have the basilisks curse the Londor Pale Shade to death.
                                    When they invaded, I used a giant seed.
                                    Because the basilisks do not deal any damage and just build up curse, he just continued to walk slowly toward me, only to get cursed by 3 basilisks, and turned to crystal.
                                    Interestingly enough, the Londor Pale Shade's corpse disappeared as soon as the "Dark Spirit Destroyed" message appeared,
                                    which is odd because when player dark spirits get cursed to death, their body stays for a little bit longer.

                                      I kill the Abyss Watchers with Londor Pale Shade (good term with Yuria) but haven't kill Pontiff, I also assisted Sirris to kill the Creighton the Wanderer and also kill him outside of Church of Yorshka bonfire. Would I still able to hit Yuria three times with a fist to break good term and still able to get invaded by Londor Pale Shade in Farron Keep and at Irithyll of the Boreal Valley, then paying for absolution at the statue of Velka in the undead settlementto get Yuria to be friendly, so I can recieve all the items without discontinuing the questline?

                                        I got all the way through Yuria's questline without pissing her off, up until I was supposed to stab Anri in the face (I just left them waiting like a dumbass lol), then realizing I still needed the Pale Shade armor, I aggroed Yuria, but THE *****ING PALE SHADE NEVER SHOWED UP ANYWAY. So basically, if you want to get the goods while still being able to complete Yuria's questline by use of the Velka statue, I guess you have to upset her prior to that final step in Anor Lando...
