Demon's Souls

Post by Rex on Sat May 11, 2013 8:46 am

I'm finally playing this in my spare spare time. I was hoping you guys could share your experience and possibly some tips. I have a mage right now but I'm probably gonna reroll a royalty since I JUST found out royals start out with mp regen. Going into this game with no previous knowledge of it was fun, but now I'm seriously reading about what to do. I died so much before I realized dying was basically part of the game and that grinding is more important to gain souls. Now I'm reading that I can raise my stats, that there are OTHER levels/archstones besides Boletarian Palace, and that I can learn spells in the nexus. Are you serious? How am I supposed to know ANY of this? I can check the software manual while playing, but the tutorial level didn't tell me anything. I'm just now realizing this is basically an mmo, without starting with other players at the beginning.

Demon's Souls is really cool though. I like the look of the levels, and I cannot wait to see what my future spells are like. Brb, getting MP REGEN FFS. No more melee-gician.

Take whatever class you want, MP Regen will only get you so far. You'll rely too much on it and you'll be in deep shit if you don't know how to time your weed consumption at critical moments. There's bosses that are very close and personal. How are you supposed to know that? Shit, go explore by yourself, game isn't gonna hold your hand, if you're good enough you don't need any of that bullshit but for those who look around the game you'll find the goodies.

>basically an mmo
No.

MP regen may become a problem later but right now my Royal is kicking ass. I'm farther in the game, haven't died once since getting into the Nexus. I know how to play squishies. Without the ring, I died 100 times, had to melee a lot. No mage gameplay really, though I know that all happens later in the game, the royal has made a huge difference.

You can parry your way through almost anything.

I don't need parry for the moment. Only 1 death so far, I beat the Phalanx and got my body back, deciding on new stats and spells now.

I'm a glass cannon. The quintessential OHKO or getOHKO'ed build. I got 2 more spell slots and pumping magic atk now. Anyway I died a second time from dogs ambushing me and had to use a Stone of Ephemeral Eyes. I noticed some blue phantom requests, should I try to get with other people to level up or am I supposed to solo till I'm stronger? How screwed will I be after my fourth death and no more stones? Cmon, Alba. hmmm?

Thanks, Hollow. I might be making a new character because my psn is too long, and I kinda want to change my face. I take it you have the disc, and that it started using the psn servers now? What class are you making?

Death is inevitable in the game, I'd play with you too but my babe has my copy of DS. You can get help whenever you want, really.

Thief.

Parrys and backstabs are the way to go.

I haven't played Demon's Souls in so long I'm rusty.
Got too used to Dark Souls.

Already made one. Sent you a friend request.
What level are you? I've kept my character low since I don't know what yours is.

On my first account I'm soul level 13 I think. I just made a new account, Redline_Complex. I'm remaking now, I'll let you know when I'm up to Phalanx again.

I'm running into a couple problems. My royal is level 48 and I don't know which archstone or sub section of one I should be leveling in. Part of that is due to not knowing what level each monster is. The other problem is I already built my Royal wrong, at least for this level. Most games where I've played a wizard, we have crowd control spells and we rarely solo with just offensive spells. Demon's Souls has NONE. So I can't keep going for a pure matk build. However, I noticed I one shot most monsters, save red eyed knights, so I can take some matk equipment off and start to focus on another stat. Some spells are AoE/mobbing so I think it best to take off the kris and put on a shield, and start getting some vit. Then MAYBE I won't being die every five minutes. So half MATK, half defense. Does that sound good?

Without some kind of root or fire wall, etc, Mages are sitting ducks, and the only way to survive is TO DUCK.

While I'm at it, some of the spells are useless and/or overpowered to another class. I'm used to being able to enchant someone's weapon in my party, but to make a spell that ANYONE can get and to make it only enchant their weapon. That's like why even make it a magic spell, it not support or long ranged. There are all these close range spells too.Number 1 rule of being a mage, stay BEHIND THE TANK. Not BE THE TANK.

You know what this is? This is Monk: The game. Because everyone plays like a monk......okay I believe I'm done ranting.

For the last time, it is not an MMO.

Your character has to be competent on their own. You can't really rely on or really support anyone else aside from just joining their game and helping them through a tough area.

You have to look at it like a singleplayer RPG that just happens to have other people playing it as well.

Because I'm Rex.

Alba's right, I do keep thinking of it as an MMO. And now that you've spoiled me with powerleveling, Hollow, it's like what do I do now lol. Is there any straight progression of the archstones in terms of diffculty?

While the levels may mostly be linear, progression through the archstones is anything but. I can go to any level I want whenever I want. I can't finish the first archstone all the way until I beat another of the five all the way, so that tells you the game is all over the place lol.

Hollow, I'm level 57 now. OMG Maneater was being a little bitch, but Penetrator was easy as pie with Biorr's help, both demon souls I ate btw. Yummeh.

Woot, it's Memorial Day Weekend, more time to get farther into the game.

I'm level 71 now, and I would have thought I had to level up before I play certain levels but now I feel like I'm getting closer to the end of the game at Sub 100, when does the rest of the game kick in? Do I play the game recursively, picking up more levels with each new game or something? What's after the 5 archstones?
