      Dude's got NO poise. I 2 handed the Executioner Greatsword and as long as he isn't doing his WA (which caught me by surprise and killed me in one go in the first encounter) you can stunlock him with R1 spam. EZ PZ

      • R2 thrust/slash combo with the Washing Pole cuts through him like butter. The thrust will interrupt most of his attacks but the weapon art and the slash will almost always catch him giving you enough time for an R1 follow up before he breaks away.

          if struggling use friede's great scythe as ledo can't be asked to dodge your r2 and r1 attacks, you might need a little bit of poise if you want to pull this off

            In order for him to spawn you HAVE to knock Midir off the bridge. Halflight can be dead, Gael can be dead, you can be unembered but as far as im aware Midir has to be ALIVE but knocked off the bridge in order for Ledo to spawn

              Storyteller Staff’s Poison Spores WA really came in handy. Aggro him out of the doorway and lure him to the ledge next to the stairs. Drop down to the nearest ledge, target him from below, and unleash the spores. Keep using the WA to keep his aggro up and let the poison do it’s magic.

                2-handed spotted whip R2s break his poise. I just walked backwards down the stairs hitting him at range while poison did its thing. Only had to dodge once or twice.

                  God the fact that Ledo was going to have a unique and cool as **** looking armor set but it got scrapped is one of the stupidest things Miyazaki has done. Right up there with letting Ornstein's helmet go plume-less for as long as it did.

                    Ledo is in the DLC. You are talking about the guy who invades in catacombs of carthus lake area or whatever.

                      Hey guys. I'm running on low sl but I found alternative for those too lazy to roast in lava; go for the ledge with a corpse to lure him in, roll behind him through one of his attacks and use the force. Praise the gravity!

                        i used to think he was just a guy claded in silver knight armor proclaiming himself a silver knight, but nope, he's the real deal

                          Well, damn. THAT was easy. Hammer or no, Ledo doesn't have the poise to trade with another Great Hammer. He's also vulnerable to Frostbite. Vordt's eats him for lunch.

                            Ok he’s badass and all that stuff, but why is he so short compared to every other silver knight what’s the lore reason there Miyazaki?! I need answers now!

                                Dude scared the***** out of me. All npcs I’ve fought just side walk when you draw bows against them and dodge every time. Ledo full on sprinted at me the moment I drew my dragonslayer great bow and smacked me with his train cargo on a stick. Nice surprise From.

                                  "Ledo won't invade if you have killed Halflight, Spear of the Church before his encounter." Is incorrect, still spawns.

                                    I’d rather have what would’ve been his armor than the herald armor it would’ve gave him a lot more character

                                      If you don't care about how you kill him, Toxic Mist FTW. Run up to Ledo's spawn point and as he is spawning spurt your Toxic Mist at him and hide behind the corner so he can't see you and wait for him to get toxic. Once the effect ends Ledo will be on low health but not quite dead yet. Puff another cloud at him through the corner/walls and he will detect you but will get toxic again because he likes to edgewalk even in Toxic Mist as long as he doesn't see you. Then just back off and avoid him until he falls apart. Perfect.

                                      • Bow Strat: Composite Bow +9 or +10 and 2 stacks of an arrow. (Tested on NG+9) First of all, you don't want to fight inside the room, bait him outside. It does 120 damage from normal R1 and 80 damage with roll R1; both with Standard Arrow. At mid-range just shoot him normally and hope he doesn't roll (he sometimes tank the arrow) and when he attacks just roll R1.

                                          How do you summon him? i went to the purging stone and roloaded the area several times. he won't come. i also killed gael if this is relevant.

                                            General melee strategy:

                                            Bait out the weapon art, stay just outside of the range of the the two spins, then sprint straight at him as he transitions into the overhead smash. Roll past him just as the hammer starts to come down: if you time it right you'll i-frame through the hammer, clear the rock shatter AoE, and land a few feet behind him. He'll be stuck in his recovery animation for a good 3-4 seconds, so run up and get a backstab or R1/R2 combo, then roll away to regain your stamina. Repeat until dead.

                                              Use a spear, pike, those kind of weapons. Ledo kind of just edge-walks until you're close enough.

                                              Because spears and pikes are just out of Ledo's range, you can poke Ledo once, then backpedal, or roll away. Rinse and repeat until Ledo joins the pile of abused NPCs.

                                                For the Sorcerers and Dark casters in the game, dodge back and cast Great Soul Dregs. He'll dodge forwards, but the projectile is slow enough that it will hit him at the end of his dodge. Other slow projectiles might work, too, but this one you get for free as part of the DLC anyway.

                                                  Are we in a bar? Cause it seems like this guy gets a lot of FREE SHOTS. Also unlimited stamina once you get him down to >75% health. Goes from being able to do four shots to as many as he wants because screw you that's why.

                                                  Furthermore, I have NEVER seen Ledo heal, IDK what some of you guys are on about, I know he doesn't because he chews through half my estus everytime I go in without an Ultra Great Weapon of some kind because he cannot be traded with. At all. I went in with a Havel build once and he just takes it.

                                                  Best strategy I can give is roll to HIS RIGHT on the first R1 and to HIS LEFT on the second R1. If you roll into where a Greathammers attack STARTS you have vastly higher odds of not getting a roll catch in.

                                                    If you're having issues with the Pancake King and his Hammer of Flatmaking, lure him out back the way you came in and jump down to the FIRST ledge. He should start trying to run/jump/swing at you from above, but he won't drop down and he won't back away into the building. Lock on to him and use bombs, arrows or spells with a large AoE to cheese the ***** out of him. Ten black firebombs and five large arrows were all it took. You won't be able to free aim your bow at him as he will be in the upper dead zone, but if you lock on and stand on the very edge of the ledge (careful not to fall off as you'll have to go all the way round and come back) you'll be able to hit him most of the time.

                                                    Alternatively, you could git gud and take the chance to practice dodging that *****ing hammer in a controlled way. It's a widely used PvP weapon so it can be a good chance to train yourself.

                                                    Another cheese involves forcing him off the ledge, or running it, throwing a high damage spell and then running off down the cliffs, then coming back and repeating the process until he runs out of estus and dies. He won't heal very often but I have seen it happen occasionally.

The whole thing about Halflight is not true, Halflight doesn't have any interaction with any npc invader. And FFS, when has an NPC invaded you in Dark Souls 3 while playing offline?

                                                                              • It seems he does not use estus. I killed him first try with only half health and 2 estus left, just by spamming Wolf Knight GS weapon art and kiting, when I backed off recovering the stamina he only chases with normal speed and never used any healing even when his health has been chipped under 1/3. I think this is a good information but it needs further testing.

                                                                                • Anonymous

It would make sense as the havel knights were also humans serving the gods but he excelled and became a silver knight. As for why hes in the dlc, I believe he's serving the only true god left as anor londo fell along with gwyndolin

                                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                                    Any theories on who Ledo is? I feel like I am missing something. His hammer doesn't give any information except that he's a knight of Anor Londo (which you'd already assume). I don't remember / couldn't find any references to him in the other games. I don't see any real clues in the place where he spawns either (not even sure what the point of that area is)... I guess he's just an old knight of Anor Londo.. I saw some people mention he's related to Havel in some way but I don't know if that was a joke or if I missed some information.

                                                                                    I guess the the moaning knight is about equally vague, although at least with him I can assume he was guarding a firekeeper at one time maybe (might have missed something there)? Alva is near the black witch corpse, similar to finding his armor next to Karla..

                                                                                      Silver Knight Invader in DLC
                                                                                      Doesn't drop Silver Knight weapons. This is a sad day.

                                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                                        So here is how I successfully summoned Ledo after completing the DLC.
                                                                                        1. Revive Judicator Argo at purging monument
                                                                                        2. replace Spear of the Church covenant with other covenant
                                                                                        Go to that tower and you don't have to be embered to trigger the fight, I'm not sure which one is necessary for the fight but it works, hope this information helps
                                                                                        ps: I have 1k hp and he 2 killed me by 2 hits

I already completed the dlc and defeated all the bosses, so i guess he will not invade anymore if all bosses are dead... wich is complete bullshit, since the pyromancer invader in Ashes of Ariande would invade you even if you already killed all the bosses. Ok, i guess. Anyone having my same problem?
