The game will always be hardest on your first time around so why not make it count. After much consideration I have decided to start with the Deprived class. I find it would be a good challenge and I wont need to worry about finding a weapon for my str build or running into fire resistent monsters with a pyro, I will make a build with whatever I can find, I just hope my skills keep me alive intill i can find or buy some armor. What do you guys think?
I think thats a great idea! I think starting off as a deprived would garner you some sympathy at least. If I ever invaded or was invaded by a deprived I dont know if I would have the heart to kill someone wearing just a loincloth in a world like dark souls.
I don't want to start on Deprived because they start on a higher level and I don't know if their stat allocation will be what I want. --- Cheating problems? I'll prove you're innocent on the witness stand (and help you find another one-night stand)! Better Call Saul
deprived is just bad. they start at a higher level with a awful stat distribution
and gear is plentiful so that is not an issue
I mean i could see if if every class started at like 8-9 with preset stats and deprived was lv1 with evened out stats. It would mean your starting weaker so you can have a blank slate character but it's exactly the opposite...
plus side though almost all the other classes start out very nicely =)
if you really want to start out with a hard time thief is probably way to go, unless they made sneaking up on monsters work better and gave daggers a better moveset than just mini-scimitar --- "Me fail English? that's unpossible" -Ralph Wiggum
I find the stats well balanced, everything is at 11 so you can build your character they way you want to on the fly. If I find a good dex weapon I can make a dex build, if I find an awsome spell I can learn it on the spot no mater what spell type it is.
So if Deprived cant equip anything besides 1 crappy shield and 1 crappy sword.... it will be specifically meant for expert players wanting to beat their favorite game on its most difficult setting....
i never played Demon Souls, and i'll need atleast one playthrough before starting a Deprived run.
Besides, your limiting the amount of fun you could have if you just play the game with only a Deprived character.... --- Conduit2 FC & Alias: Shader 0218-1153-3165 "You've met with a terrible fate, haven't you?" - Happy Mask Salesman
