    Play it blind is my only tip - and don't rush into things, they are not always as they appear to be. Remember your experiences on Dark Souls and let them aid you.

    of course, i always play blind my first time, just wanted to know what class you'd recommend, and if there are any must have items i should look out for.

    Don't pick Royalty - it makes the game a cakewalk.

    Pick barbarian, it makes the game more fun winking

    Also, don't ask for any help and do everything solo as far as you can.

    Or play it offline if you prefer, though you may find the little messages rather helpful at some points.

    Meh, these days online is perfectly safe. Anybody who wants to PvP or co-op is playing Dark Souls, so there's basically zero risk of being invaded and you might as well stay connected to pick up those helpful messages since what few players there are still have the generosity to leave them happy

    On topic: The most effective starting class is easily the Royalty. The problem is it's almost too effective, and can take most of the challenge out of nearly the first half of the game. After that the second best is probably the Temple Knight. It starts with armor that competes with the end game armors, as well as a healing miracle so you won't always be starved for healing items. It allows you to take alot of punishment and so is very forgiving early on without having the power and safety that the Royalty gets. Other than those two, it's really only dependent on what weapon you want to start with honestly.

    offline? demon's souls is a online game, built to be online, it would ruin many features. like invading and coop. so no lol.

    I meant just for the first play through, play it as the pure PvE experience it initially is meant to be, then explore the online features happy

    Use miracles, they're okay. Just don't make your first playthrough as a pure caster. Makes it waaaaay too easy winking

    just beat the phalanax, fun stuff. he was simple enough. no i face a bigger threat. the F***in tower knight, so here i was killin the archers. they all died, so i went to kill the knight, and i could't touch him, i figured he was like the iron golem, because both games are completely "different (sarcasm) with the drakes, and the phalnaxs. so i charged, and died. help? lol.

    Use <50% roll, it's better than the DWGR roll in my opinion, kinda too good compared to what we're used to.

    I played demon's first and in dark when I saw the bridge after the tauros demon, I was like, I know exactly what's going to happen. A stupid dragon is going to fly down and toast me...

    That's exactly what happened

    Yeah, mine was backwards, though when I got to the dragon bridge parts I knew instantly what was going to happen, so I didn't die (might have helped I was slow over the bridge and could escape, just.)

    The amount of poetic licence and recreation of Demon's souls in Dark is actually quite amusing, though sorta lazy silly

    my advice is to keep all the demons souls and not use it to gain souls so u can use them to upgrade weapons and learn mircales or magic

    the first time i played demons souls, i chose theif but i changed my mind and chose magic so i can beat the bosses with mage ...
