I want in this new playthrough do a Dragon Bone Smasher build, I would like to know what are your suggestion with the stats distribution, rings and spells. For now I know Second Chance is a must have. I want firestorm too.

Also I need help with a build that can use most weapons and at least 2 relevant spells. Something basic. Stats, rings, and spells again.

Any suggestions?

First off, soooo glad you're getting into Demon's Souls!

Second, there is a huge and invaluable wealth of Demon's Souls info on all topics on the old wiki dot forums (the one that hosts the build page I am about to las to).

Myself and a bunch of others spent a on of time putting info on there.

Alternately, you can always Google search "demon's souls (insert whatever you are searching for here)" and chances are you'll find a result.

This DBS with Magic build was made by an old buddy of mine and is quite fun:

EDIT: To use Firestorm with this build you'll need to raise Intelligence to 18, so 3 more levels. I would recommend either dropping Vit to 35 or going to Level 128 instead of 125.


EDIT EDIT EDIT: Lower END to 35 from 38, not VIT!

https://www.mugenmonkey.com/demonssouls/3108

I tweaked some stuff, for some reason it gave me SL129 (or it was 127?) and not SL125 like in that picture when I entered the stats on the planner so I had to reduce some END points to reach SL125 and later a couple of VIT points to move them to INT to use Firestorm.

Did I break something while moving stats?

The second build is for someone else. I'm assuming she won't use the blueblood sword and that amount of spells it's ok if I go with the minimum luck and low some points of INT, right? Just making sure I'm not gonna break the build somewhere lol.

Thank you for your help.

Intelligence determines spells slots.

15 Int gets you 2 slots, 18 Int gets you 3 slots.

Fireball needs 2, Firestorm needs 3.

Honestly, in my opinion, Firestorm Is pretty useless but fun to mess around with.

Fireball can be DEADLY in both PVP and PVE if timed right.

And yes you can certainly lower both Dex and Str by a bit if there are certain high requirement weapons you never plan on using.

Also, a good spell is Secobd Chance, which resurrects you one time when your health gets depleted.

You can use it to "spar" with an opponent, let's say if you guys are practicing or just messing around fighting each other and don't want to constantly re-summon each otherr.

Both players cast Second Chance, fight til your health Bar is gone, you resurrect, stop fighting, recast the spell, repeat.

Yes, we both will get second chance and some old spices.

Alright I will do that if I need to modify the second build and lower it's SL. Mainly because we are just going to do a single playthrough and I would like to keep the farming of souls to level up later to a minimum. Thanks you for the info!

You want to hear it? Better see it. I plan to upload the whole thing to youtube like I did with DS1. I will duplicate some Ephemeral Eyes to keep the cooperation happening all the time. You are more than welcome to see us dying and twinked to death lol. We won't rush it because I only beat the game once, this won't be like DS1, 2 and BB, I'm gonna be disoriented thanks to my bad memory :laughing: .

Thank you again for the info.
