    Just picked up DeS

    Post by Jodecho on Thu Feb 14, 2013 8:26 am

    so as the title said i just now got to play DeS. ive done about every challenge run there is for DkS (all the common ones anyways) but ive never so much as watched a DeS video. i knew i would pick it up one day and i didnt want to spoil anything. the first time i played DkS i went through it without any help from the internet and id like to do that with DeS too. ive heard the crystal lizards will dissapear forever if you dont kill them fast enough on here, but besides that is there any spoiler free pointers i can get or little things i should know before i start playing that could potentially ruin my first playthrough?

    Nothing really, just the usual stuff like being mindful of your stat allocations.

    Crystal Lizards in DeS works with a counter system, everytime you encounter one the counter goes up. The higher it is, the less chance you have of encountering one.

    There's world and character tendency.

    Magic/miracles work differently, instead of attuning scrolls and a separate attunement stat, intelligence increases attunement and you have infinite casting so long as you have mana.

    Last point would be that DeS is not as linear as DkS, so it's both less forgiving with regards to how you wanna go through the game, and yet easier to get to places you wanna be early on. You'll see what I mean.

    Almost everything--all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure--these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.

    About the crystal lizards:

    There is a counter, though it works like this:

    Say you visit the first world. You have a lizard counter of one. Every lizard in that level has 1 life. It dies, no more life for that singular lizard. Every time you kill a boss, the counter goes up. So all lizards that haven't been touched get another life, and those that have died come back to life. Savy?

    Also, when a lizard dies/disappears, the counter goes down. So yes, you have to be quick about it. silly

    I wouldn't even ask this. Just accept that your 1st run through will not be perfect (in terms of doing everything) and that it's not meant to be.
    The difficulty will already be mitigated by your (vast, I presume) experience in DkS, asking any questions at all will lessen the experience IMO.

    Be aware that Magic is wholly overpowered, and by using it you'll be doing things on easy street.

    Armor is a lot more forgiving, with you being able to fast roll at %50 encumbrance.

    ...and above all else...INVADE, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD INVADE PEOPLE, I WANT FIGHTS DAMMIT!

    the only advice i have is to keep an eye on the tendency for each of the five worlds in Demon's. new events, enemies and areas will pop up in Pure White and Pure Black tendency. so be sure to explore an area you've already cleared a second time to find any possible world tendency events.

    to change world tendency, you need to either die in human form (moves closer to pure black) or kill a boss, named black phantom or a primeval demon (moves closer to pure white). by the way, primeval demons only appear during pure black world tendency.

    each crystal lizard you find only spawns ONCE so kill the little bastards as fast as you can. each crystal lizard will spawn one additional time for each boss you defeat. be careful when hunting crystal lizards though, FROM likes to put them in places that will lead you into a trap.
