Demon's Souls builds...are they similar?

#1xXxHaVeNPosted 2/3/2013 10:42:13 PM(edited)
I'm going to go play Demon's Souls again pretty soon. I've only beaten it once, and never really did any PvP. So, is it similar to DaS when I'm making a build? Stop at 40 for most stats, 27 for strength, etc, don't upgrade luck i'm pretty sure it was.

Also, is there a character creator somewhere so I can go ahead and min/max my stats? I tend to do that a lot and I'll need to know what class to start as.

CoD is the best game series ever and it will never be topped ever never. This sig is 100% serious and not a joke at all. Nope.

I think there is a spread sheet on the Demon's Souls wiki that will help with your stats, but that's it as far as I know. I haven't checked in a while though.

You're spot on with Luck - don't bother with it. The other stats are just gonna depend on your weapon.

Luck is only good if you're going for a Blue Blood Sword build.

Diminishing returns kick in at > 50 in DeS, as opposed to > 40 in many cases in DkS. This of course means that 27/40 is not a thing in DeS.

Luck is for BBS builds only, which are perfectly fine for competitive play. I would suggest looking up ggdoom's guide on the wikidot if you're curious about making one.

The Talisman of Beasts is popular for caster builds, but it requires a balanced distribution of Int and Faith to utilise, I don't recall the specifics (it's been a long time) but this is worth taking note of if you plan to make a caster.

You can treat Vitality and Endurance much like it is in DkS, i.e. Diminishing returns on HP gain kick in at > 50 for the former, and max stamina is achieved at 40 Endurance.

Other suggestions:

EWGF's Demon's Souls FAQ - http://www.gamefaqs.com/ps3/954345-demons-souls/faqs/59592

It covers anything else you may need to know and has layouts for a number of different builds. Go to the Wikidot forums if you want alternative / more info.

Yeah, go through all of EWGF's guide.

With every wave of interest in Demon's, I see people proposing to make str-faith/int and dex-faith/int builds as from Dark. If that's what you're looking for, I think the closest you can get is slapping on Light Weapon onto sub-50 dex weapons, 30ish str DBS, etc.

Here is every build you can think of

But lvl 125 pvp is pretty dead now. So a 125 build may be pretty worthless. Only people I see playing DeS is pinkmage and nugz and a bunch of my EU friends.
