yoohoo... i beat the world 4. Was kind of easy actaully.
Now i am heading back to world 1 to destroy the blue dragon. I feel strong enough so far.
Right now my dex is at 37.

I think i have now about 40 hours clocked and it still is fun to play. Once i am done with this game i surely will get me dark souls.

have a great day. :)

Ok, i finished the game. It was very entertaining and i clocked 80 hours in to the game.
I felt that the last bosses were kind of easy to overcome but that can also be my character build. I had 47 dex and 22 end & 22 str. the rest was pretty much untouched.

So now i will pause for a while and perhaps make another run down the line. Altough now i am locking really into dark souls. :)

Thanks for any advice posted. It was very helpful and helped me getting through all the problem zones.

After a 5 month or so hiatus (stuck on the Flame Lurker) started playing again a few days ago and beat him in two tries, it was actually pretty easy. Should I continue on in world two or try another...suggestions?

Last area of world 2 is pretty easy (it's just the boss) a little like a puzzle as you have to sneak around and make your way through till you can put the finishing blows on the boss. If your character dabbles in magic it is probably worth killing the boss now as its soul can be used to make Fire storm, a spell which is quite effective vs. certain bosses and for crowd control.

For my personal experience with Demon’s Souls, when it was close to final I spent close to two hours playing it and after two hours I was still standing at the beginning at the game. I said, “This is crap. This is an unbelievably bad game.” So I put it aside.

The ultimate ragequit :lol:

So I've kept all of my boss souls, do they offer special abilities or just add to your soul bank? Should I "cash them in" or just hold on to them? I have:

Phalanx 1-1
Fools Idol 3-1
Tower Knight 1-2
Spider 2-1
Flame Lurker 2-2
Dragon -2-3

Hold onto them for now! Give Flamelurker's soul to the blacksmith in 2-1, and he can use the other boss souls to create unique weapons for you, or you can use some of them to learn powerful magic spells from certain NPCs in the Nexus.

Right, every boss soul has at least 1 use, they either create a weapon, a miracle, and/or a spell. Some are useful buff spells/miracles even if one is primarily a melee-based character.

If true, I give him credit for personally trying games for a few hours. I would have thought he would just rely on reports. The game isn't for everyone, I can respect that. He played it, honestly didn't like it and didn't think it was a good fit. He was wrong, but he was wrong sticking to his own guns.

Hey, which boss was the most annoying boss you defeated?

To me it was the Blue Dragon. It took me fooorrreeevvverrrr.

Overall the bosses are not that hard if you figure out how to approach them. I still hesitate to do a second playthrough.

Once i have some money i will dive in Dark Souls.

Phalanx, I had used all my fire bombs, didn't have any magic spells, and only had a mace so I spent 40 minutes or so constantly circling the room, taking out hoplites as they spawned and budded off of the main boss until I was able to move in and kill it, that's when I was playing the game cold.

After that, probably Maneater as it kept knocking me off the platform.

I had issues with Flamelurker, mostly. He was tough solo yet so easy with blue phantoms.

For Maneater I used the strategy of trying to keep the flame thing in the middle between me and the monster and just taking shots when I got a good chance. That was also not a quick fight.

So far for me it has been the Flame Lurker. I basically ran like hell until I got in good position to hit him with soul arrows. Took around 20 minutes. I just got invaded for the first time the other day in 1-4. I was making a lot of progress until that A-Hole invaded me. I almost killed him though but he caught me out of position and took me out with one stab in the back...jerk! This game is difficult enough without worrying about invaders :-\

I haven't finished the game, but I found Maneater to be the most annoying. Tower knight I probably spent the most time on. I had soul arrow, but no catalyst and couldn't figure out why it wasn't working. I thought it was a bow upgrade so I was trying to shoot it with the bow equipped and obviously nothing happened. I eventually just picked him off with 170 arrows or so. (I was trying to play without any type of guide.)

I think as a ranged character it is easier. So far i did not fight any of the bosses in melee. I can imagine that it will be much more tougher.
All the bosses i defeated with a bow and so for the most part it was easy to some extent. Still the blue dragon took so many arrows. I think i shot about 700 arrows (total) in the thing. And of course i died a couple of times too.

The other boss 1.boss world 4 took me a real long time. It was especially tricky since it is very narrow and you can get hit so easily.

I assume most of you defeated the boss in melee which i consider really hardcore. :)

You should go back and play as a melee character - it's almost a totally different game!

I defeated phalanx, tower knight and the spider using melee. I didn't start using magic until after defeating the spider. I took out the flame lurker and the fools idol(finished with a few quick blows with my falshion+8) with soul arrows. The dragon god was probably the easiest once you figure out what to do as the harpoons pretty much do nearly all the damage. I honestly look forward to getting to the boss battles because there is so much uncertainty until you get there. Right now 1-4 is kicking my butt, can't wait to get off so I can go home and try again. I'm primarily a melee character but have been using more soul arrows on the more difficult enemies.

Last call for online; servers go dark end of May. They're also holding two world tendency events for each half of May based on votes.

Heh, anyone who gets the plat after this will truly have to do it legit.

Crap I don't have time to play. I need to check my trophies list. What is the advantage other than mining for better stones?

(I usually don't play online.)

Trading items to hold for trophies. The game was pretty brutal in needing every single item in the game for the plat. I did all mine legit though.

Playing offline is easier than online though, assuming you're not summoning help.

How do people do that? Aren't they phantoms? I've never summoned help, so I haven't tried any of that stuff.

Only thing that is really a pain in the ass to get is the pure bladestone, most everything else can be acquired through the course of the required 2.5 playthroughs.
