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.


3.5 for Demon's Souls, I thought. 2.5 for Dark Souls. I got the plat without duping, though I did trade someone a bunch of cloudstone I had farmed for a pure bladestone.

^^Yeah some of the stones I have so many I can't store them anymore. I am on my first playthough. Cloudstone shards I just drop on the ground. I haven't made many weapons, but I have been upgrading the falchon (magic regen one) and the dragon long sword, but I ran out of stones to completely upgrade them.

It's the cloudstone chunks that a total pain in the ass to get. I farmed the stormbeasts for so long. At least it's also a great place to grind levels (4-3).

Yeah, I didn't even notice when I got mine farming those gold skeletons for souls. By the time I was wrapping up trophies, I only had easy ones left that I just hadn't worked towards.

Yep, your right, got the two confused. one thing to keep in mind with cloudstone is it is a good idea to farm for the trophy on your first or second playthrough as by the time you get around to your 3rd+ playthrough in black world tendency it will take more than 1 swing of the stormruler to kill storm beasts.

I recently started playing this game again and got a pure bladestone within 2 hours of grinding. Actually got it before I got all the chunks I needed.

And you guys shouldn't farm for chunks of cloudstone. I'm pretty sure you get enough from treasure during your three playthroughs.

It's allot easier to upgrade the buckler & use the chunks of cloudstone from the body in 4-3. If you play through 3.5 times, that is 8 chunks. You only need 7 chunks for the buckler.

Funny, since Vita's launch I have said the day Dark/Demon Souls comes to the Vita, I will buy one.

I am nervous because I am not seeing a From connection. I think Sony owns the rights to DeS, that is why Dark Souls was not called DeS II. So it is possible that Sony farmed out Souls Sacrifice to some other studio.

Fingers X'd.

hi all,

can anyone help me get the Monk's Head Collar at some point this weekend? I'm pretty sure I have to invade someone who is heading up to fight the world 3 boss.

You don't have to invade - try using your blue eye stone (as if you want to get summoned) anywhere in World 3 and you have a chance of becoming the boss in 3-3. Just put it down somewhere out of the way so you don't actually get summoned as a blue phantom.

ah, so i can probably just put it down inside of the room where the fight takes place.

Though, i guess I'd still need someone to actually initiate the boss fight?

Anywhere in the tower of Latria will work, I don't think you can actually drop a blue stone in much of that final staircase leading to the boss fight. I usually dropped it near the maneater entrance, following the curve around aways and placed it under the pots.

Then it's a matter of waiting until someone connected to the server tries to kill that boss and you will have a chance to be summoned to fight instead of the NPC.

Since this is the last month before NA servers go offline, I'm definitely going to enjoy a few invasions during the closing days. Great memories, :applause:.

It's a pure white event currently until May 15ish, if an area is not pure white, try entering the level, exiting, shutting down Demon's Souls, and then booting it back up again. It might take a few connects and reconnects until your worlds are fully averaged to pure white.

I just started playing this game and I really wish I would have played long before the last month of the servers.

ahhh crap. I forgot about the world tendencies shifting. I think I only have boss battles left. I beat worlds 2 and 4. I have the final boss fights on 1,3, and 5 left.

I really enjoyed this game (except for that one level where there's tons of scaffolding because I must have fallen off of that a dozen times when I was first starting that level :bomb:). I think I'm going to go back through it again soon and try to get the platinum for it.

I beat this game once, and loved it.

Just started trying to co-op this game with my son. But looks like we won't get close to finishing, as our play time is pretty limited right now. I wish they'd give us another 3 months.... I know they have already extended the date way past, and are unlikely to do it again.

Atlus is fucking awesome. This only makes me wish that they had published Dark Souls instead of Namco.

Does anyone remember how much Demon's Souls cost during that Black Friday sale a year or two ago? There were three sales then: one for the regular game, another for the game and soundtrack, and a third for the game, soundtrack, and artbook.

These are what I paid for them:

with soundtrack 16.99 (think it went on sale for $15)
artbook and soundtrack 25.99 (may have gone on sale for $19.99)


EDIT: I'm glad the servers are staying up! I was panicking because I want to get the monk hat.
