Best class?

#1 Posted by NekuSakuraba (7241 posts) -

I'm thinking of playing this before Dark Souls and I was wondering what class you think is the best?

Thanks.

@NekuSakuraba: start with whatever class you want, that's the fun way or you can listen to what most people would say (not me I prefer fun) go royal if you want to beat the game quick and easy :|

As for me, I started of as a Knight Fat rolling my way till I could fast roll and that was fun.

There is no "best" class.  
 
Iti s what ever fits your playing style.

In the end it doesn't matter. There's no difference between them, really. Everyone can be everything - at max level everyone is maxed out in everything. It only affects the distribution of your starting stats, armors and weapons/spells. If you want to assign all the attribute points yourself, then Royal is the way to go as it's the only one that starts at level 1.

Royal is a good starter class because you get the soul arrow spell right off the bat. Which is really handy at killing guys at a distance and allows you to sort of test the waters of melee combat at your own pace rather than the sink or swim approach a straight melee class forces on you.

But that's just my opinion.

I just started up Demon's Souls yesterday. I love the hunter so far, I like to roll behind dudes and stab them in the back. ;)

Plus you get a bow to start out with so you can melee and range.

I have no idea if anyone still needs this but go with Royal if you plan on using any magic at all.
 
Fragrance Ring is awesome and let's you take out dragon on your first run of 1-2.

@LordXavierBritish: Not necessarily... I still haven't beaten 1-2 and I just got the fragrance ring from 4-1. Not really that hard to get pretty quickly.

I also started as a knight. It's really tempting to just spend all my souls on buffing my endurance so I can roll fast but I'm trying to be patient and deal with the fat roll for now.
