So today was one of mighty triumphs, dismal failures, and ultimately wiping the slate clean. Definitely learned some more very harsh lessons courtesy of Demon's Souls. In fact I broke down and started looking at the wiki. It was then I learned how badly I had screwed up my character and how I missed out on some freaking awesome items. It started so well too, I actually beat the Fl amelurker in one try! Had to do a lot of rolling and there were a few times I was trapped in a bad place. Hell there were points where I probably shouldn't have survived that fight but I did! And when he went down, fuck I felt like I was on top of the world. I thought i had this Demon's Souls thing down!
Then I got to the second area of the Tower of Latria and was disabused of that notion. I managed to make it all the way to the Maneater boss and just could not get past it. Not only were there two of them but I just didn't have the stats to make it work. So I thought "okay, I'll just go to another part of the game and level up a bit", so I went to the second area of the Shrine of Storms. There I was getting my ass handed to me by just regular enemies. I had hit a brick wall and just could not progress further, I didn't know what to do or how to fix my build.
So I turned to the Demon's Soul wiki where I discovered I had picked on the hardest classes to start from, (wanderer) and had missed out on some powerful weapons because I consumed the Demon's Souls to level my character. Demon's Souls had defeated my first playthough, so I scrubbed it and went with the Royalty class!
First off magic is awesome, like super awesome! I can just stand back and let my spells do all the work and my class starts with a nifty ring of MP regen as well! Second of all the game goes much much faster when you have some idea of what you are doing. Took down that Phalanx like it was nothing, didn't even break a sweat. I am definitely gonna make my new character a magic and faith powerhouse, slinging spells like Merlin and taking down fools eldritch style! I haven't given up, I will beat Demon's Souls, and hopefully this new mage character is what let's me achieve that!
