Don't parry. It requires a lot of practice. If you miss, which you will; you're dead. Just hit and run.

Block right before the enemy's attack makes contact (parry), and immediatly press r1 with a weapon equipped to perform an extremely high damage dealing critical attack (riposte).

If you haven't been using this till now then the game should get significantly easier for you. I had moved out of 1-1 only after mastering parry on the weak monsters there and it lets you take out enemies in one hit that are otherwise much tougher to handle.

I have to disagree, I spent some 30-60 minutes practicing it and was hardly missing anything after that (except some fast ones). Anyway killing an enemy with a parry + riposte is extremely satisfying, I don't see much point in playing DS as a melee if you are going to rely on hit and run all the time.

Hmm I have just been skewering my way out of combat ATM. Relying on positioning and timing. I think I tried that counter reposte thingy in 1-1 but never landed anything. Maybe its time to give that another shot.

Also the level design in 3-1 is terrible. Everything looks the same.

Perhaps the world is not made. Perhaps nothing is made. A clock without a craftsman. It's too late. Always has been, always will be.....too late.

I rarely used parry. Hit and run on something like, say, Red Knight is very satisfying as well. First you need to learn the enemy attack pattern, then the attack animation before you can successfully pull that off. You can easily beat the game without doing that, but it depends. I don't want to take risk with that move when I have a lot of Souls. That's the best thing about the game, you don't want to take risks mostly.

The skeletons in 4-1 will be easy to handle once you get the cresent falchion at the beginning of 4-1. And when fighting the golden colored skeletons make sure you lure it to a safe place so can roll and evade their attack.

Parry is extremely satisfying on those 4-1 skeletors. Only way to kill them early if you don't use that fire enchantment oil thingy.

Just approach and fight an enemy normally and once you see how it attacks you can easily parry all the rest. It has it risks, but if you can pull it of correctly you can wipe an area clean in 1/10th the time it usually takes and hence level up quick.

And there is nothing like walking towards the middle of a large group of monsters and taking them out with a chain riposte. Nothing else in DS felt as rewarding.

The game does not restrict you to a particular style anyway, so whatever feels right for you.

I blocked their most of their attacks. But I had finished worlds 2 and 3 before I ventured into 4. I had some good armor and weapons and a high level.
All gernalizations are wrong, even this one.

You will need a catalyst(?) to cast a spell. So you need to have that before you can fire soul arrows. I think you can find one in 1-2.

Those fat guys are a pain in the a*s. Dont bother blocking. Lock on to them and strafe. Most times you can find them in a doorway so you can use the side areas to hide, hit them, hide again. Or if you meet one in the open, strafe from mid range and wait till they cast, move in quickly and hit them, move back again and strafe again.

2-1 is actually easier than 1-2. After that though, its a PITA.

Check the Demons souls wiki. It helped me out a hell of a lot.

beat 2-1 boss
onto 3-1 dam this weird guys are irritating
even with theif ring not able to give them backstab,being too close is also sucking up huge health,only option for me is to use soul arrows
but my mp is low ,guys i have 2000 souls and my magic level is 10 if i upgrade this portion will it increase my mp portion or mp attack power??
also should i wear regular solider armour or magic armour found in this level,they have low defence points compare to my default solider armour,but will it have better magic defence from this weird guys?

which weapon are you using? Ge the crescent falchion from 4-1 and try to upgrade it if you have the materials to do so. It does good magic damage and is pretty useful early on.
What kind of character are you trying to build? melee || magic || ranged || etc...
3-1 is easy if you take it slowly. Wait for those medusa heads to turn around and then run behind them and R1 R1 R1. Hopefully, if your weapon is reasonable, they will be dead before they ring your death bell.

Parry is extremely satisfying. With some decent armour you can always take chances. With those skeletons I usually took the super safe approach of luring them, hit with soul arrow and run like hell. Else I would roll behind enemies and back stab them.

The worst generic enemies are:
Giants in the swamp
Invisible assassins in 4-2
Assassins in the palace

I will get there

Autosave, look for the indicating foggy white symbol in the upper right corner to see it- when it disappears, the game has saved.

There is no pause to immerse you in the experience, you cant just stop the game when you are about to die and eat grass till full life.

Give it a chance, its a great game-

(to test saving just eat a grass, or change an equip item like weapon, you will see it save)

Best of luck, dont give up!

I managed to find my way to kill armor spider....he is difficult but if you know then it just needs bit of patience and luck....anyways the game is too time consuming and most part of it i feel is unnecessary ....coz it makes it boring and tiring at same time...as number of times you die and number of times you can killed so easily with one small mistake or such and then the time it takes it to load and start all over again ....really makes it very sick ....even when you are doing good and you manage to have survive with lot of souls and you go to nexus to use it and return to the world... it again starts all over again....this is very frustrating and i totally dont support this part atleast....

It is exactly that part of the game that also makes it unique .... its just like classic NES games where once you die its back to the starting of the level .... it forces you to learn enemy patterns,make less mistakes and become better at the game , unlike modern games where story/cinematic gameplay..etc has become the main focus instead of gameplay and challenge...

People tend to play better when they know the consequence of losing is painful :P.... btw if you travel at a one of those stones you can travel back to the same point ... so basically each world is divided into 4 parts.... if you finish one segment and a boss you dont have to play that again...

Finished it!

The second half of the game is CONSIDERABLY easier compared to the first half. And the final bosses of 2, 4, 5 are a total cakewalk. 3 was easy too but getting to the f**ker with those red Cthulhu monsters was a proper pain in the a*s, assholes just destroy you in a moment in that narrow stairway.

Also 5-2 and 3-1 were horrible levels. Not cause they were difficult (infact 5-2 is easier than 5-1 IMO) but simply because the level design is abysmal. Its too dark and everything looks the same, its way too easy to get lost. Aside from that, quite enjoyed it. Good game.

5 as a world is horrible - the gains are few, and it's so easy to die. The darkness is deliberate because it plays some tricks with perspective (giant goblins). I remember 3 being quite easy - depends on the character I guess.

I will get there
