    So I just bought Demon's Souls.

    Post by Shindori on Mon Sep 17, 2012 9:05 pm

    And traded in my Dark Souls 360 for PS3.
    Question is.. Anything I should expect? I obviously played Dark Souls first.
    what should I be prepared for?
    Any tips and hints?
    All is welcome.
    And spoilers as well cuz I already saw the ending.

    Magic = easymode, that is all.

    Magic recharges on this one, doesn't it? Makes things a bit too easy.. Besides I rarely use magic.

    What are you going to be in Demon's Souls?

    Spoiler:
    Pure physical builds BEWARE! The flame lurker will incinerate you.

    The Dragon Bone Smasher is a godsent. Its the only build Ive even made so far for a Soul Series game that is STR heavy.

    DBS is super easy mode, try a Bramd. Low AR, and the heaviest weapon of the game. You'll need +60 End to fast roll with light armor.

    To be honest my main tip would be to go in as blind as possible to the game as it is heaps more fun this way. Don't worry too much about not getting every item in your first playthrough (well maybe clearing up after you've beaten a world would maybe be a good idea).

    Physical. Flamelurker was SO easy, it just took patience. Beat him on my first try.

    There's a place you can hide from the Flamelurker among the skeletal ribs. If you're lucky, it gets stuck trying to get at you and you can off him with arrows or magic like Soul Arrow.

    The Thief's Ring helps while doing this as well. If you run to the back left of the boss area there are ribs you can get behind. He will try to get to you and then get stuck. It does take the fun out of the fight, but it is an easy way to take him down.

    I agree with you shindori that the bosses on a whole are easier in demons.. though the penetrator didn't give me trouble.. or allant much for that matter though i wised up using the magic resist shield 2nd try on allant silly

    only boss fight i think is harder than comparable bosses is flamelurker, and he is ridiculously hard. Mistakes are punished so hard by him lol, but his fight is so damn fun.

    I think the mobs make demons harder, their mobs are less predictable and obviously with no poise more dangerous with a fast attack.

    Maneater was always the hardest for me. The Flamelurker is pretty unforgiving as well.

    Demon's Souls was always more about "hard levels, easier bosses" (even though I still find the bosses more interesting in Demon's than in Dark Souls). The best example is the Valley of Defilement. You see, it's so good of an example that I don't even have to elaborate on why it's a good example, because anybody who's played it once already knows winking

    I still don't know anything about Dirty Colossus' moves. And I don't even know what kind of music it had. One stamina bar with a dragon greataxe +4 and it was dead.

    It does basically the same thing as the Leech Monger. It flails around and sometimes hits you with bugs that act like a poison. I suppose you could say DC moves while LM doesn't, but at that speed can you really say DC "moves?" :|

    I've noticed that no matter what, one hit and I stagger. Is there no poise whatsoever in demon's? DX

    I don't think you can do that in the US version.

    Welcome to old-school game design! Mario and Megaman didn't need no hi-faluten save points in the middle of their levels. No, back in my day you ran that level from start to end every single time!
