Demon's Souls - Keep my strength at 28 max?

#1xXxHaVeNPosted 4/24/2013 11:05:53 PM(edited)
I am not really knowledgeable about how DeS works. I'd like to do a quality build. Is 28/40 good in DeS as well?

Also what class should I start as for a quality build?

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.

Put your desired stats in here and then hit class finder, it will tell you the most efficient class to use. Usually wanderer or pyromancer, they have the most starting stats so they have the most defense and damage reduction, but some builds will want something else to save a few points.

Also, 28/40 is what many people use for quality builds. You can hit the weapon damage calculator to see if its worth going higher for your chosen weapons. Most times its not worth it.

In Demon's Souls you'd do either a 27/40 or a 40/40.

Here's my quality build in Demon's Souls:

Class
Knight (SL128)
Another class might lower your final SL.

Stats
50 / 18 / 40 / 27 / 40 / 10 / 16 / 7

Spells / Miracles
Second Chance
Cursed Weapon

Weapons
Quality Knight Sword
Quality Claymore
Quality Greatsword
Sharp Winged Spear
Sticky Compound Longbow
Dark Silver Shield
Morion Blade
Talisman of Beasts (can still use despite not meeting the stat requirements)

Rings
Clever Rat Ring (paired with Morion Blade for "hypermode")
Eternal Warrior's Ring
Friend Ring (When summoned)
Cling Ring

His reference was Dark Souls. In Dark Souls 28/40 is better than 27/40 simply because it affords one-handed use of several decent weapons.

I was referring to the TC. The guy who said several posts ago he wasn't talking about Dark Souls.

He was referencing Dark Souls when he asked if 28/40 was still good in Demon's Souls. That's where he got the 28/40 from in the first place.

And Arc was telling him to go for 27 instead because there's no reason to stop at 28 in DeS.

Everything here becomes an argument.

It's possible. I thought he was trying to correct him on 28 since I've run into people who refuse to accept 28 as a STR cutoff in Dark Souls.
