Start off with 3-1. In this level too some of the lesser demons will be harder than the boss fights.
All gernalizations are wrong, even this one.

LOL what a pushover the giant spider turned out to be. The Tower knight was a nightmarish motherf**ker. This one died with almost zero effort or strategy. Hell forget the Tower Knight I had a harder time with those flame chucking fatsos in 2-1 than I did with the 201 boss. At least they managed to kill me a couple of times, the spider went down in my first try and I only had to heal twice.

Still I aint complaining. I will take an easy boss any day.

So now, should I do 3-1 first for 4-1? Which is better for a melee character?

NO don't go to 3-1
NO NO NO

Save it for last :samui:

go to 2-2 & 2-3

If you have a good bow, 4-1 boss is very easy. Not sure about Melee.

4-1 is easy, the patterns are easy to figure out. It's just that you die even if you make a single mistake :bigyellowgrin:

Too late. Already in 3-1.

Tried 4-1 but the skeletons keep stunning me. My shield is sorta puny.

And rise with me forever, across the silent sands.

And the stars will be your eyes and the wind will be my hands.

Also, once you finish 4-1, you can farm for souls very easily at the beginning of 4-2.

Don't block the skeletons, doge or parry. Actually the 4-1 is the first level I went to after 1-1 because the area lets you level up insanely fast once you learn to parry.

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.

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.

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.

And rise with me forever, across the silent sands.

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
