Yes, you can get most of the trophies
offline if you prefer. The World Tendency's event's are easier to
understand than many are lead to believe. When you sign into the
Demon Souls's server your World Tendency's are one below Pure White.
Killing any boss in that world will raise it to Pure White. Dying in
Human Form will lower it by 1.
PWWT = Pure White World
PBWT = Pure Black World Tendency
PWCT = Pure White
PBCT = Pure Black Character Tendency
Tendency and Character Tendency are entirely different from each
other. So you have to remember that. Each has different effects,
events, and the like.
You also have a few steps in order to
keep Pure Black World Tendency, and Pure White World Tendency. You
have to make your new character online to put all the worlds 1 below
Pure White. You than have to sign out of the server if you want them
to remain Pure White. The worlds are reset every time you turn off
the game, or return to the nexus. I've experienced this first hand.
It caused me to restart my game a few times.
Character Tendency can be gained in a number of ways Helping other
players as a Blue Phantom, killing Black NPC Phantoms, killing black
phantom invaders, or by killing Colorless Demons. I'll break down
each one for you.
You get a Blue Stone when you get past the
first level. It's like the white soap stone in Dark Souls. The same
rules apply. Killing invaders can also raise your PWCT, but you said
you wanted to do it offline. So here is another option for
After you've finished all of the PWWT's you can begin to
work on the PBWT. You can do this by committing suicide in the world
you want to make Pure Black.A totally of 6 times in Body Form will do
it. When you die in any world in Body Form it lowers your World
Tendency by 1. That is why it's important to suicide in the Nexus
after you kill a Boss Demon. Dying in the Nexus will not effect your
World Tendency. But, dying either by mistake, enemies, or on purpose
will result in your World Tendency dropping. You cannot raise unless
you kill a Black Phantom, or Boss Demon.
There are a number of
Black Phantoms in each Arch Stone you can kill to raise your PWCT. To
lower it you must kill NPC characters in the game. The best NPC's to
kill are the Merchant's scattered throughout the Arch Stones. Filthy
Man, and Woman are examples. You can kill a few others to lower it as
well. Three NPC's I don't suggest killing is Black Smith Ed, Stock
Pile Tomas, and Blacksmith Boldwin.
Getting PBCT is the only way to get a
certain Ring. That's the only thing useful I can see that requires
getting PBCT. There is a ring for getting PWCT though. Pure White is
harder to get than black. So I suggest going for Pure White before
going for Pure Black.
The five Black Phantoms you kill to get
PWCT are located in the following areas: World 1-2, World 2-2, World
3-1, World 4-1, and World 5-2.
There are other NPC Black Phantoms that
exist within the world. The top five are considered the most
important though and raise your Character Tendency quickly. This has
been my experience. Killing them will also raise your World Tendency.
So you don't have to worry about them remaining Black. Another thing
to note is that Black World Tendency raises Enemy Attack Power,
Health, and raises Item drops. Pure White does the opposite. Enemies
are easier to defeat, but you get less items.
Colorless Demons can also raise your
PWCT and drop Colorless Demon Souls. Which are required to get the
'All Saints Trophy'. You'll need three colorless demon souls. Unless
you dupe them.
You can get all the trophies within one
play through. You can dupe/copy Boss Souls, Items, Stones, which will
make it much easier. But, it is considered cheap to most players. My
advice? Would to be Demon Soul's once before trying to get all of the
trophies. That way you can experience the game the way it was meant
to be played. Before you decide to dupe/copy items to get the
Platinum. You can also play it numerous times to get the Platinum.
One path is just easier than the other.
Other players can also help you achieve
Platinum much faster than normal. Much like Dark Souls they can drop
off items for you. And like Dark Souls they cannot help you with
Spells, or Miracles.
Another thing to remember? Is you need
all the Boss Soul Weapons to get the Solider's Trophy. While you
cannot drop Boss Souls, another player can drop you the Boss Soul
Weapons. That's just something to take into consideration.
Since I've rattled on enough I'll leave
it with that.
