    @quadfather You can plan world tendency if you summon somebody and send him back with the Resurrection miracle. But for that you need to get the boss soul of 5-3.
    Is there where you repeatedly send them back to get the +1 tendency each time?

    This x 456. Just play the game. :-)
    Yeah, you've just got to get in there really :)

    @Dangerous_Dan Ah that patch makes a lot more sense now. I honestly though it was PvPers moaning. It sound like it kind of needed to be done for new players as well as the duelling crowd. I never experienced any of that personally but I haven't made a new character since the week the game came out. I'm on the crazy mission of getting the platinum trophy with one toon :D

    I kinda wish I had made a new character for when the DLC came out, doing it for the first time on NG+ is proving quite the challenge.

    For the emperor!

    By the way, I was playing online last night, and it was chock-a-block full of players - good to see

    I fell asleep yesterday night, otherwise I would have probably logged on to check for who's online. At SL 43 you should be able to summon the pure bladestone master. ;) But I have other chars at lower SLs as well.

    That was my impression as well - looks like there are still tons of people playing it.

    @Dangerous_Dan - I think I'm in the low 30's, but I can easily pump that up a bit. I ended up getting evacuate in the end, so I can do the mind-melting 4-2 run for a bit.

    Which reminds me to get the avarice ring

    Had a great laugh in 5-1 and 5-2 last night - still amazing how much atmosphere there is in 5-2

    I was offline for most of the night as wanted to check some tendency stuff out, but I'll be online tonight.

    I can't even remember the mechanics of soul form/summoning/body form etc

    Anyone know if there are any super cheap PS3 deals (console only - even the 12GB) around? Really want to play Demon Souls.

    @sport - 120 here

    That's probably the one I'll get when my launch model finally explodes

    PS3, blu rays and the ability to play demon's souls is worth 120 to me

    Saw that, but the 120 retailer is something called "Koliko" which has terrible seller ratings :-/

    I don't have a blu-ray player either so worth snapping one up on the cheap if I can.

    ah yes, I didn't clock that

    well, - here's one

    And another

    more money, but still well under 200

    2nd one refurbished but it is 320gb with 12 month guarantee. First one obviously new, but 12gb

    Yeah I think I'll just go with the flow with regards to tendancy during my first run through the game. I've gone with the Temple knight since she seems to have decent armour and the healing should come in handy. Sounds like royalty is the easy choice for beginners. I'll be interested to see how much of my Dark souls skills translate.

    @erekose200 - you should be fine. Think the temple knight doesn't have enough endurance to start with the roll quickly, but that's obviously a preference for you

    Shall keep an eye on this thread to see how you're getting on :)

    I've come back to this lately for another playthrough, and couldn't help noticing the huge volume of player apparitions when compared to either of the PS3 or 360 versions of DkS.

    For an older game that was a surprise. Is this down to dedicated servers or the funnel that is platform exclusivity?

    Disappointed that I did not manage to take down tutorial vanguard, who one-shotted me after I got it down to nearly half health. But then, beating it first time might have also been a disappointment, if you know what I mean! All is as it should be!

    Very early impressions are that backstabbing is a touch more tricky then Dark - a good thing imo. And yeah, half health when in soul form? That sure provides incentive to regain one's humanity!

    I'm really not sire either, but not only are there loads of other players, the messages are still getting highly rated. Check put 4-1 near the start-most messages have been rated in the high 20's.

    No doubt about it, its still going strong.

    Amazing really

    Heh, did exactly the same the other day. Was doing really well then the twat reminded me how brutal the game can be :)

    However, if you have whiteish tendency you should have around 75% of your health in soil form. Providing you're wearing the cling ring? Get that if you haven't already (in 1-1). Very important ring

    Yeah I found the cling ring - useful stuff. Managing ok so far with extreme caution.. except for one time backed away from an enemy and streight off a ledge to my death. You'd think I would have learnt by now but noooooooo!

    That's the Phalanx down and 1:1 done. Surprised I didn't end up using the Temple Knight's heal miracle as seem to have collected a ton of healing herbs. One death so far.

    @erekose200 - lol @ cliff death. Many more to come I'm sure.

    Only yesterday, I was attempting to suicide in the the nexus and got caught on the way down and landed on a block that was sticking out. Ended up falling again, but couldn't get my souls back, sigh :)

    Doing well though for 1 death and 1-1 down. You can go where you want now.

    What's the plan? :)

    I'd recommend doing 2-1 and then suicide-running either 4-1 or 5-1 to get the Crescent Falchion or Blessed Mace (if you are planning on going down either the magic or faith routes respectively).

    After that, 1-2 to take on the Tower Knight! Who is actually one of the easiest bosses if you know what to do.

    @Quadfighter RE: attempted suicide run in nexus

    Ouch! That one had to hurt!

    2:1 down now and two more deaths. One to the tower Knight and one to the 1:1 red eyed Knight who I went back for. I'm pumping most of my souls into endurance followed by vitality and then strength. I may go with faith at some point but the herbs negate the need for healing miracle and don't have any other faith based weapons or magic yet. Think I'll head for 1:3. I'll just take it as it comes for my first run and plan it out a bit more in my second... assuming I get to a 2nd of course ;)

    @erekose200 - sounds like good progress so far. When you say 1-3, I'm assuming you mean 3-1? As 1-3 is locked off to you for the moment.

    I really like world 3. Watch out for a bell ringing sound :)

    @Dan - thanks for your help last night and a big thanks for the items too! I think I need to practice with that winged spear a bit (cause of death in 4-1). Need to do something certainly as the falchion is starting to tire against monsters now.

    Wish I'd have made a note of inventory items so I could plan an upgrade path today :)

    Was good fun anyway, been a long time since I did some coop

    I was too careless about the two golden skeletons. I should have used my bow to pull them the first time around.

    You now have a lot of moonstones. They make for a better magic weapons for low magic chars.

    I think now you are set for the rest of NG :)

    I didn't help by trying to keep up and just diving in :p

    Wish I hadn't have put 22 into strength, but it's tough now.

    Is it worth making another magic weapon/upgrading-falchion even though I don't have much (11) magic though?

    And you said you didn't like the sharp falchion? I was thinking of making the winged spear sharp (currently +7)

    Basically, I'm trying to think of a specific weapon that'll kick arse, and upgrade the sticky bow to compliment it

    I should definitely be set for something, at any rate :)

    took vit to 20, end to 20, and dex is on 30 now

    For instance, look at a tearing broad sword +3 (doesn't need many mats)

    Tearing Broad Sword +3 - 86/0/0 - Bleed 209 - E/S/-/- 6 shards, 1 chunk
