Pale Shade Set is an Armor in Dark Souls 3.


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.

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. (Sneering Mask) 


Location/Where to Find

  • After angering Yuria (hit her, kill her,kill Anri's Assassin, etc) or killing Yoel  including the moment you meet him on the bridge you have to defeat the Londor Pale Shade in both Farron Keep and Irithyll of the Boreal Valley (you need to be embered and not have defeated the area bosses in order to be invaded).
  • Farron Keep: go to Farron Keep bonfire, exit and turn right, by the basilisks.  You have to be invaded here first, otherwise you won't get his set. You need to do this BEFORE THE ABYSS WATCHERS.
  • Irithyll of the Boreal Valley: go to Distant Manor bonfire, go through the sewers he will invade on a stairway near a shortcut. Then, if you already killed him at Farron Keep, go back to Firelink Shrine (where Yuria/Yoel were) and the set will be there. You need to do this BEFORE PONTIFF SULYVAHN.
  • Watch Video on how to get the set
  • Rather resembles Mozgus from Berserk [1].

Notes and Tips

  • Gaining the armor on NG+ is recommended to not interupt the Londor quest line requiring Draw out Strength from Yoel by killing him the moment you meet him on the bridge ensuring both envasions when embered.

      Shame it's a minor character, because I wanna see what a good cosplayer would look like when cosplaying him.

        Not something I'd ever wear in game though I do like collecting everything, maybe ng+ I'll go through all the shenanigans to get it.

          Make a new character, locate Yoel. Send him to Firelink, KILL YOEL. Kill Heysel in Crucifixion Woods. Proceed to Farron Keep, kill Londor Pale Shade by basilisks before killing Abyss Watchers. Proceed until you reach Irithyll. Kill Londor Pale Shade again, who invades after the Silver Knight painting room. Go back to Firelink, follow the stench of Yoel's rotted corpse and pick up the Pale Shade Set. Its not that difficult, don't be lazy...this will take about 4 hours if you are only focused on getting this beautiful, frail outfit. Stop asking for handouts and do it yourself.

            This is a better way: Aggro Yuria by hitting her with something weak a couple of times then run away from her. Get invaded at Farron Keep and at Irithyll by Pale Shade Londor. Then BEFORE the Pontiff Sulyvahn bossfight, go to the statue at the Dilapidated Bridge and pay the fine to stop Yuria being aggroed on you. If you do the bossfight before you pay the Absolution fine, I believe she disappears from Firelink. It's a good way if you like to keep everyone alive at Firelink like I do (except Yoel, of course). Then go and claim your prize next to where Yoel dies.

              I like the way the set looks overall, but it gives off a girly vibe, which sucks for my male dark sorcerer.

                Imagine if the only way to get Brotherhood of Steel power armor in Fallout was to piss their faction off. That's what this set is like, which kinda sucks.

                  I swear to the Lords of Cinder... I would like to rush through the game and get all the sets and all that, but that's impossible in just ONE run. The problem is that I love having different builds and it takes *****ing forever to have them fully accomplished, so I have almost all my files with a PvP level character and right now I'm making a Hollow build, and I can't have Pale Shade Set without oppressing MY PEOPLE in a veeeeeeery specific way. I thought being friendly towards the Pale Shade I would have gotten the Set somehow, but that's just me jumping into wrong assumptions.

                    A needlessly hard set to get. Seriously don't know why you can't get this with being Lord of Hollows. Really... come on...

                      One thing i hate about this & the Sable Church questline is that you must mandatorily accept levels in order to advance. SL 111 is already ideal for me, i don't want to go any higher :/

                        It's a real pisser you can't get this set by actually allying yourself with the Sable Church. You're one of the members, are you not? Why do you have to anger your patron/pay a crapton of souls to be absolved in order to gain it? Makes no sense ~_~

                          you should also mention you HAVE to get invaded in farron keep first. If you kill him in irithyll he wont spawn in the swamp. learned that shit the hard way.

                            Hey guys. I´m looking to get this armor set but i messed up along the quest (i didnt anger yuria in order to trigger the pale shade invasion in the Farron Keep area and i also ended up killing the abyss watchers which ended up ruining everything i had planned to do with the armor). So my question is this, does anyone have an extra set of this armor lying in your inventory that you wont need? If so would you be so kind as to part with it to me? I´ll gladly give anything in return for this generosity. My psn is Darkanine99 if anyone feels generous enough to part with the extra set. Thank you for your time for reading this, Ashen Ones.

                              In the description of how to get it, it says kill yuria and yoel, you can't kill yoel unless you kill yuria, unless they mean that you let him die. If so someone needs to rephrase it

                                I think it's a bit strange Pale shade doesn't invade even without having Yuria there.. disappointing at least...
