    PvE



    Now that you've been introduced to the various mechanics of this amazing game, it's time to take a closer look at its PvE. As before, I will avoid all possible story spoilers, with exceptions to the boss section. Even so, each boss will have its separate section, so you don't spoiler yourself in case if you're looking for help with only one particular bossfight.

    PvP



    Now that we covered both general mechanics of the game and PvE, it's time for a few tips about PvP. The game has far less players than Dark Souls, so it's unlike to run into an invader, but you're quite likely to be able to invade someone instead. Unlike Dark Souls, Demon's Souls really motivates its players to be in Body Form, and thus they are open to invasions, but cannot invade themselves.

    Boletarian Travel Guide Empty SL 125 Duels / Fight Clubs

    Post by Walter_White Thu Jul 04, 2013 4:21 pm

    Due to CT and WT and the slightly different online mode in Demons Souls compared to Dark Souls there are some things to take account of for a fair and honorable duel. You can't just host and fight invader/red summons or set your red sign/invade and fight a host if you want a even playground and fair chances for both. A fair duel on even playground always involves a host, that is not fighting, but only gives you the room for a fair duel.

    The meta SL 120 in Dark Souls is a heritage from Demons Souls. Most builds are made for SL 125, because you will often lose some SL. In fact SL 120-130 is the meta. When making a build this should also work on SL120.

    Builds, Weapons, Armor Shields and Spells should be chosen good to perform well in a duel. I will give some examples without claiming to be exhaustive - just the top tier and some of my personal preferences.

    Since this is designed for veterans, it may be worth making a thread with the newbie guide Fex and I made as a companion to people new to the Souls series.

    Hmmmm
    That shouldn't be too hard. I think that most of the things in my posts can be used for newcomers as well. I'd just remove all Dark Souls references and made a newcomer part, where I would explain the very basics of the game and it's combat. Stuff like: use your shield, be careful, watch your surroundings etc.

    What says thou?

    Giving this a read-through now.  Great guide so far!  And don't hate me for being nitpicky here but in the WT section when discussing the Dragon Bone Smasher, it's to the left of the intersection, not the right straight face

    EDIT: Also, on character tendency, I'm pretty sure that successfully killing a boss as a Blue Phantom will raise you towards PWCT. The only reason I'm not 100% sure is because you seem to have done your research here, so maybe you leaving that out was intentional.

    I wrote the three posts and made the charts in three days time with next to no free time and sleep. big grin
    There's bound to be tons of typos and mistakes in it, but fear not. I plan to fix all of them.

    About the CT. I used my memory of the game and the Official Guide, along with livedoor wiki and wikispaces wiki. To my surprise none of them mentioned shifting CT towards PWCT when you kill a boss as a Blue Phantom.
    While I also think the CT shift happens, I decided to not include the information, as it can be false. It's quite hard to go test it myself too. I can get tons of invasions, but no one ever summons me, nor do I see any summons myself. :/

    Edited!
    I tried to remove all Dark Souls references (I may have missed some....) and added newbie tips into all sections of the guide.
    Now the guide should be usable by both Dark Souls players and newcomers to Souls series equally.

    Anything you find lacking, missing, or is incorrect, please bring to my attention, so that I can fix it. Do it either here, or by PMs. It doesn't really matter which as long as the problem gets resolved.
    I would like to avoid any and all misinformation in this thread. There's already enough of those all over the net, so one safe haven to search for information and tips would be great.

    Thank you.

    Thanks - but Sent did 90% of the work, i just complained about words and formulations (still don't agree with the word "visible" in connection to WT or CT. When it's visible it happend, if it's not visible it didn't happen. The WT change takes place with returning to nexus and then you can see that change as well.).

    And the best way to do the WT Events is online - just use the server median for you instead of working against it.

    Anyway - now i'm done with my part. On friday the forum broke under my fingers, so i couldn't finish. And the weekend was the first nice and hot weekend here. I couldn't stare at a monitor, when the summer comes along.

    BBQ, Party, swimming and some Solaire real live cosplay Praise the Sun 

    Now i'm going to repair my RC Helicopters and go on with what i stopped last autumn: inverted flight, flips, tictocs, rolls and loopings
    if i pratice 10 or 20 years, perhaps i can do the crazy stuff Bert is doing:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QDxaJTjCFhE
    thumbs up thumbs up thumbs up 

    So i will only be online for the Demons Souls FC every friday night - summer isn't the time for playing inside Sun

    Since I couldn't find it I just wanted to tell you just in case that every October 6-18 the server shifts to pure white world tendency and 18-31 it shifts to pure black world tendency in honor of Demon's Souls anniversary and Halloween.
