ZOMG how writes a brilliant guide on how best to build your character, and get him / her best prepared for the though road a head. A must for anyone starting off in this adventure of a game!
Imo im doin really well so far and im honestly NOT that much of a RPG player, other than FF8/X and Fallout 3 i havnt liked any other games in the genre :-( I took the advice of sum mofos from N4G and my friends list(thank u) and went with the Royal (female named after my daughter) Im 17 hours in, level 44, beat the Phalax, Tower Knight, Adjudicator, Armor Spider (im pretty sure i did) Flame Lurker and the Dragon God (he was EASY) How do u get those dragons to bugger-off off that cliff in the 1st world? i just wanna go up there and c whats up there
You can kill them both Red Dragon in 1-2, I believe. Run past him on the bridge, until you reach the tower in the middle of the bridge. Run outside of the bridge and climb the stairs to the top of the tower. You'll know you're in the right place when a guy with an axe tries to chop you down on the stairs and they'll be two soldiers on top of the tower you can kill. You notice a couple of barricades facing towards the beginning of the bridge where you came. That's a hint. Since you're a royal with a magic regenerating ring, you can actually snipe the Red Dragon as he does his bombing runs. I went and got the bow from 4-1, upgraded it a bit and brought a TON of arrows (200 -300 to be safe and depending on your stats / bow strength). It may take as long as twenty minutes, but you can whittle his health down till you kill him. After you kill him, you can go to the hill and collect all but one item that is right under the Blue Dragon's tail. You will die if you try to grab this. The Blue Dragon dies in 1-4 I think. You'll face him as part of the story and the fight sucks. Make sure you free Biorr and bring him along to help fight the dragon, or atleast distract him. After, you kill the Blue Dragon you can go to the hill without worry. Good Luck! EDIT: You can actually grab everything before killing both dragons if you do suicide runs on the hill. Just run up and grab items, knowing that you're going to die. You may lose souls, but you get to keep all items
Pure white world tendency will make both dragons disappear. Killing certain dragons throughout the world will also get rid of them. You can also go just past their nest to the bridge and wait for the red one to come after you. Then run back to the nest and grab the loot quickly before it returns.
Also, you should probably check out http://demonssouls.wikidot.... It's pretty much got everything you need or want to know about Demon's Sous.
Best advice right there
I got a lend of it from a friend when he improved it. though now its available just done the road Im saving up to buy it. I love the way this guide helps out, but not too much that I feel like I'm not deciding what to do myself.
Those dragons: With white world tendency I think they fly off(it's been awhile lol You can also kill the one that swoops above the bridges by sniping him from the towers(takes awhile but it works,probably 150 arrows or so. You can also dash and grab the gear,die repeat but it's annoying because you only have time for one grab before you get toasted.If you stick to the lower far left you can avoid the fire and follow the cliff around to some hidden gear tho :)
Always wondered how to get rid of those. As much as I want to know whats there. Im viewing it as a small surprise!
Thanks for the comments so far, I appreciate feedback.
To kill those dragons on the 1st world you need lots of arrows : ) On your first playtru you could kill the red dragon with poison/disease cloud by casting it at the top of oneo f those towers it pass by. But on your 2nd+ play tru this dragon is imune to Damage over time so you got to be prepared for a super long fight using around 400 arrows. Be sure to be on ghost form so you don't get killed by a black phanton :) The other dragon( forgot its color) you can kill it when it it by the entrance to the tower where King Alant is located. Can either use spells or around 400 arrows to kill it. This game is amazing ! I had a total of 250 hours of fun before I could plat this awesome game. Bring on DS2 ! Good Luck !
Upgrade a bow to a Sticky +5 and increase dexterity by a lot and the red dragon can be killed with considerably less arrows. My last playthrough I killed that POS with about 50 hard arrows and I know I missed him a few times. The Blue Dragon was killed with about 60 to 75 arrows and again I missed him a few times. Btw the Sticky bow +5 might take a while, the others can easily be done on the first playthrough.
I'm in a place where i'm level grinding on 4-1 & 4-2 a fair bit, building up strength to get a bit further into it, whilst taking sneaky further wanderings into 3-1 and 2-2. 5-2 is just.. terrifying! A real pleasure to read. Thank you again ^-^
The only place to farm is with the storm sword (not sure if that's the name) and the where the final archstone is (where you kill Storm King). Equip the ring of avarice and in 3 minutes you'll have about 20 000 souls. Rinse and repeat.
That's it I'm playing this game again later tonight all this talk is making me relieve the time in which the game first came out. Really want to fight the Tower Knight again anyway and some black phantoms.
I suggest anyone who just started Demon Soul's use this build http://demonssouls.wikidot.... (and this whole website) since this build is unpredictable (as said in the guide) and it was much more effective than my first build (strength/endurance not good for me) NOTE: there is many other builds to choose from that are far less difficult to use but less effective in the long run
Ugh. Don't you mean the cheapest way to start on Demon Souls. Seriously, quickest way to get the best weapon, basically. These guides are all over the wikidot. No one should start off playing the game like this. Seriously man, you say you don't want people to ruin the experience, so you don't guide them hand in hand, but you tell them how to get the best weapon asap, and include the cheapest way to kill some of the bosses, on the way to getting it. Way to ruin there experience. If you just got Demons Souls, do not play as this guide describes, you will definitely ruin the experience. Oh and this isn't news, - and shouldn't have been authorised, but whatever.
There's so many ways to play this game, it's awesome. I don't like magic so I played through the game using the meat cleaver 2-handed, don't know why but bosses have an extremely hard time against that weapon :) Just get rid of that shield, wear light armor and learn how to roll, it makes the game easier most of the time.
No Shield?....You're hard core man... hard core. I'll try that on my 4th build... A shield in Demon Souls is like an American Express card... you simply don't leave the nexus without it. - That is,.... unless you're pure bada$$. .. and I'm not there yet. :(
LOL, I'm not hardcore. I was getting my ass kicked by Maneater when I used a shield, so basically he forced me to step outside of the box and put it away and wear light armor to be able to roll. For most of the harder enemies and melee bosses, just quickly roll in and out to bait them to do an attack, then hit them while they're in their recovering animation. Most of the time it's easier than with a shield.
Sounds good. Maneater is a beast without parallel. and you're right,.. all you can do is hope that you can bring a BP into the battle with you and roll out the way (but,..just not off the bridge...) +Bubs to you for the talk back and for the DS appreciation.
I picked up my copy this weekened, but seriously havent even put in my ps3 this game scares the crap out of me!!!!. Seriously i feel so overwhelmed hearing you guys talk about it is ther a site with good tips for newbs like me.
Be strong good friend.. Be strong (and take your time... like it you out there) Its not a hack and slash. Here is some food for thought... On my first play through it took me 9hrs to get off the first level..a lot of dying and a lot of crying... On my second play though it took 45 mins. Have fun and feel free to email me and I'll share my psn handle just in case you need additional help from a blue phantom.
cool appreciate it man my psn id is stationfan
Theres so much to do in that 1st level though :D I think I send longer just playing it messing about and exploring, than I did in the story mode in most games launched this year. Madness! Demon's Souls will hopefully prove to game dev's that we still love SP.
no tips for intellegence?
not unless you're going heavy on the spells (vl 24 may be over zealously.. I'm sure there are a few folks on the board that can provide better feedback on this) and if so you may need to balance your magic with your faith as faith increases your magic defenses.
I always make high dex characters with sharp+5 weapons. I prefer having quick attacks instead of the meat cleavers and pole weapons.
