    Room Mates are awesome!

    Post by Slarg232 on Tue Jan 08, 2013 10:52 pm

    So my room mate has a PS3, and I was able to convince him to download Demon's Souls for me, with me either paying him back or doing him a huge favor.

    What are the major differences between Demon's and Dark Souls? Other than no Poise, the Nexus, and similar?

    Off the top of my head, the tendency system(game gets harder if you die), unlimited invasions are unlimited, no estus but you can buy healing items, Mp instead of attunment, ores are a pain in the butt, no lightning, no halberd miss penalty big grin

    Edit: somethings will only appear with specific tendencies.

    So long as you get the first attack, you will learn that poise is your friend . it's been a while since I played though So I can't say for sure, I believe Heavier weapons had hyper armor.

    Yes, but tanks in demons become more or less useless at higher levels, since there is no poise, fast movement is more important. Faith builds in demons is a different beast compared to dark souls. They only have one offensive spell, and its cast time is too slow to be effective. The reason you make a faith build is for the HP regen and magic resist.

    God's Wrath with the ring of sincere prayer was pretty slow, but if you could get behind a wall it would be deadly if it hit. Comes in useful for a certain place too... you'll see what I mean silly

    I'd like to say the upgrade system is better. It allows you to be more diverse, granted there are still the "go to" weapons. But if you want a strength build with a rapier off hand you can make it fit way better using the right upgrade path

    Also, spoiler free, the 2 different endings seem more different then darks ending choices.

    to put it simpley. in demons souls magic was as OP as anything could be. faith was near useless. meelee was the medium game and almost everyone used a falchion.

    Lemme see... Faith build are OP, you can farm healing items and getting a maxed out weapon is a *****..,

    It's really fun though, general mobs are more of a challenge than bosses butt meh.

    Im still very new to DeS but compared with DkS I've come up with following differences (except for those you wrote):
    1. Magic stat gives attack to magic and intelligens works like attunement but you also get mag def.
    2. You can auto-climb (atleast some) small obstacles.
    3. You have both equipment burden and item burden (you can get rings to increase both).
    4. Obvious but DeS have a mana/magic meter.
    5. Dex and Str weapons need different upgrade shards.

    Im just a week or two into the game, but these differences is what I've come up to so far except for the stuff OP wrote

    Hyper-armor. Learn to use it. Big weapons, like the Greataxe, have certain moves that make you impervious to staggering.

    As regards the objective differences you probably know them all - no poise but hyperarmour, no estus but grass, no INT but mana bar, no bonfires but a nexus, can't upgrade armour, WT system and events, different upagrde system for weapons, no jump and then a whole heap of very minor differences as regards game mechanics and weapons.

    As regards subjective differences the fact that on the same thread you're being told faith is over powered AND that it's useless tells you all you need to know - just play and see for yourself big grin

    IMO magic is exactly the same 'power' as it is in Dark Souls (easy mode for the most part) and I rarely see anyone using a falchion...so everyone's experience is different.
