      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.

              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.

                            Is it possible, that he does not appear, if you are doing an low SL run? Running around with SL 15 and he won't appear. All Bosses are still alive.
