So I finally got my first real taste of a Souls game today, just got up to and defeated Phalanx and I'm very impressed so far. I've died a few times and it feels like the good old days of gaming in that regards, rather than the modern day way of simply respawning where you died with little consequence. Another thing of note is the incredible level design so far and I think I'm going to really enjoy this one, I guess I'll have to buy the Dark Souls games after this

Older than I care to remember but have been gaming since owning a wooden Atari 2600 and played pretty much everything inbetween.

Just beaten The Old Hero

@carlos82 ah I’d say the next boss in the area you’re in will be your first REAL taste 😂 Glad you are enjoying it though, these games can be a real breath of fresh air.

Just beaten the boss in 2-3. I can now open the fog gate after The Tower Knight.

@carlos82 Glad your enjoying it. That whole first area is basically like a training area. If you are finding any enemies tough, don't be afraid to go back to the Nexus and try out of the other worlds. You will gain more souls for levelling up your character and also pick up materials to upgrade your gear.

I'm finding this ridiculously hard. For context, I've platinumed Bloodborne, finished DS1 and DS2 and, after my initial DS1 playthrough I went back and in one go got to the Lord Vessel without dying. On tbe orher hand, I haven't played any Soulsborne for 3 years at least so I'm out of practice, I guess.

Here in Demon's Souls I can't beat the Tower Knight. I've died 3 times to him now. He oneshots me with certain attacks, and even if I block his attacks nearly kill me. I have the Cling Ring on, by the way. I saw the Eurogamer playthrough and Aoife got hit by the same attacks in the same armour and took a lot less damage. Not sure if I'm underlevelled - I'm SL11 and started as a knight.

I went to 2-1 and I do terrible damage against everything there. A backstab against the miner enemies doesn't even halve their health. My sword is +3. I'm feeling pretty confused since I played this on PS3 and don't remember it being like this.

Have you died in human form a lot @Matroska?

That shifts the world tendency to black and causes enemies to hit harder and reduce your overall health to boot... If you've used the stones to revert to human form a few times that could be part of the problem.

@kyleforrester87 Have you played other Souls games? How does the difficulty compare to them? (you can list specific games as examples).

@Draco_V_Ecliptic I’ve played all of the FS souls games and Bloodborne, though not all to completion (yet). Demon Souls is by far the easiest in my opinion though I should reserve judgement as I’ve not finished it yet. Sekiro is the hardest.

@kyleforrester87 Thanks, just out of interest, which ones did you complete? I've played them all as well and didn't complete Dark Souls 2 or Demon's Souls on PS3 - or Sekiro.

@Foxy-Goddess-Scotchy No, I know about killing yourself in the Nexus so deaths don't change world tendency. I gave up on Tower Knight and went to 2-1 where I got killed by the Armour Spider. I've nearly run out of Half Moon Grass, have run out of Crescent Moon Grass, and have zero souls. I've been playing for over 7 hours and have only beat Phalanx. This is driving me mad.

Ah... Well @Matroska ...

I think in the ps3 version when you were online world tendency was set to a player average if I recall correctly... No idea if the PS5 version does it though... Potentially you could still have a darker tendency even if you've been doing the trick in the Nexus?

Other then that I don't have anything beyond levelling up your vitality stat even more, getting some better armour and hoping for the best unfortunately!

@kyleforrester87 Well done on beating the Old Hero!

I'm currently on 1-3 and really like how it twists and turns on itself. This will be a great area to farm for higher level health items.

@Matroska You can farm the health items in area 1-1. You could try also 1-2 but I found that much easier after defeating the Tower Knight and working backwards. What stats did you level up and what weapon are you using?

@JohnnyShoulder Started as a knight, I've levelled vitality, strength and endurance and about now SL13, I think. I'm using the starting equipment but the longsword is now Quality +1 and I'm planning on taking strength and dex to the softcap.

@Matroska You could try upgrading your weapon a bit more. That will improve your attack power more than levelling up your attributes. I didn't take on the Tower Knight until my weapon was at least +4.

@JohnnyShoulder It's more a defensive thing. I'm sometimes dying without even hitting him once. Blocking his attacks still has me take a load of damage, getting straight up hit by them often kills me outright.

I'm fat rolling due to my encumberance but even when I tried it with another character that was fast rolling, I still couldn't dodge his AoE shield slam. Sometimes it hits me when it looks like it really shouldn't, too. You can see in one of these vids I'm just outside the visible AoE and it's fine, I don't get hit. In the other one I'm much further outside the visible AoE and I do get hit. You also see me foolishly trying to roll out of the AoE which gets me OHKO'd, though blocking it still leads to burning through healing items and getting no chance to attack.

I’ve now done all areas 2-5 and I’m on the final boss of area 1, I’m guessing there is some sort of end section when you clear all the available areas. The boss on 1-4 is going to be a bit tricky I think, he gave me a bit of a pasting on my first attempt. I thought I might get it wrapped up today but I’m exhausted so time to play something less emotionally shattering 😂

I did beat Penetrator first go though which I’m pretty happy with 🤙🏻

@Matroska I don’t rely on rolling much, I have loaded most of my points into endurance so I can take the hits and still have some stamina left to get a few of my own in. Then load up in the biggest armour you can get your hands on!

@kyleforrester87 Some may say that Penetrator has become the Penetrated. Congrats though, beating a boss first time is always something special.

Socks before or after trousers, but never socks before pants, that's the rule. Makes a man look scary, like a chicken.

Black Lives Matter. Enough is enough.

@Matroska Stay behind him, give a couple of whacks on his ankles, then get out of the way of his foot stomps, so make sure you leave yourself enough stamina to roll or run away. After you hit both his ankles so stuff his coming out of both of them he will fall on his back side, so you will need to move quickly. The hit him on the head a couple of times. This will need to be repeated a few times. Also, I double handed my weapon and only used strong attacks to maximise damage output.

@kyleforrester87 Now you are just showing off!

I did just beat him on the second go though!
