    Put a bit into Faith, and I believe that my best bow is a compound short bow +6...

    Speaking of stats, I'm not sure how much I should put into strength. I know I need 15 for the compound long bow, but I think I need 18 for the uchi-wotsit don't I? Points well spent or should I put those points into magic and dex?

    @Fuzzyduck - fair do's. I'm just thinking that if you needed souls, the first 2-3 minutes of 4-2 is really good for farming souls if you have a half decent bow (which you have)

    @Rob - Uchigatana needs 18 strength yes. Up to you really, do you want magic and dex, or be able to use the uchi? :)

    @quadfather

    I do? nice! :D

    Ha, I just did a sneaky farming run of 4-1 there. Crikey, I'd have been wiped out trying it this morning, now I'm literally running through it!

    Just dawned on me, I should probably upgrade my talismans and catalysts some...

    To be honest I'm just being to lazy to look up what the uchi is! I've heard it talked about as a good weapon but it's long way up to 18 strength (currently 13). I may just leave it at 15 as I should have plenty of good weapons once I have the materials to upgrade!

    Am I likely to need faith? I haven't touched it yet (currently 8 I think)

    Yeah, that bow would be fine I'd have thought

    4-2 is really easy for farming. Even easier if you buy the evacuate miracle and get the ring of avarice. But that ring is only obtained by going through a world of poo in 3-2

    Not actually sure you can upgrade the talismans and catalysts. You can certainly get better ones though, ala dark souls

    It's in 4-1. In the main arena where the Vanguard is/was.

    Well, you've already gone down the magic path havne't you? you'd be spreading yourself a little thin if you chucked faith in on top. Though you could easily take it to 10 so that you can cast the basics. I'd personally definitely level it enough to use the evacuate miracle

    I must already have it, stockpile guy is probably holding onto it for me :)

    Oh yeah I don't want to specialise in it, maybe just have the option to use it if needed.

    I certainly don't want to spread too thin, which is why I've been concentrating on dex and mag mostly.

    Yeah, you can have a bit of it, just don't try and take it and dex to 40 :)

    $64,000 question.

    personally

    Demon's is smaller and operates on a hub basis, whereas dark souls is open world
    Demon's has a better sense of atmosphere (darker) than dark
    It's more 'fluid' than Dark. Just seems faster and more responsive when you're playing.
    But Dark souls has some amazing areas, and more upgrade options

    can't decide personally.

    Ok, so would 10 be enough do you think?

    @robc84 - 10 is the minimum to be able to cast miracles. (Same for spells). However, different miracles cost different amounts of faith.

    Or am I getting confused with Dark souls...

    No, I think that's right - 10 and then see the priest to check taht you can cast the miracle (You'll need a talisman of god equipped to do so, once you've learnt the miracle)

    Well I only really need to be able to cast the essentials really. I have a talisman so I just need another couple of points in faith.

    It must be hard work trying to teach us Demon's souls to be fair.

    It's much appreciated though! :-)

    Gah, trying to reach the last few Dragonstone chunks in the lava in 2-2 so I can take that sword to +5, but no joy :(

    You'll need a pure to get it to 5. Which is on a little island in the lava. Fucker to get

    Yep, actually have two pure. I'm three chunks short though.

    I've the flame resistance ring and either Warding or Water Veil, would they give me enough time?

    Might :)

    Why not just kill the big bugbears - they normally drop them. Though it takes a while.

    Yeah, go on, fuck it, go for it with ring and spells. It'll be a laugh even if it doesn't work :)

    Warding might be only physical damage protection not elemental

    Cack, turns out I only have one pure bit of Dragonstone :(

    But the ring and spells worked, nabbed the chunks I needed from the lava at least :)

    You haven't even finished Dark Souls yet.
    No quitters allowed.
    Have you even finished Anor Londo yet?


    And of course, Demon's is better.
    That being said, I think I want to play Dark again for some time.

    So I've just spent an age trekking around 3-2 and cut the first chain. Please say if (when) I die I don't have to do that again?

    Edit - F you, Maneaters!

    Yup that'll stay cut. You just need to sort the other.

    He's a twat isn't he. There's two ways to kill them. 1 head to the brazier and kill the first one as quick as you can. Keep the brazier as a shield.

    2 cheese the first mandated by firing a bow through the fog door without going through it. Works with all bows except the lava bow

    /hagrid I should not have said that
