Tendency

Work in Progress

This page is a more scientific and accurate take on the World Tendency and Character Tendency system, primarily meant as a reference, compared to the inaccurate but more intuitive +1/-1 system used throughout this wiki. This approach is more in line with the Tendency page of the now lost Atlus Demon's Souls Wiki. This page also has additional info on enemy health and attack power. Some black world tendency breakpoints should also be more accurate in this version.

  • From the default offline tendency, 3 boss kills in Boletaria should always put the player at Pure White World Tendency (if no deaths occured).
  • From the default offline tendency, 2 boss kills in any world orther than Boletaria should always put the player at Pure White World Tendency (if no deaths occured).
  • The Neutral World Tendency range (where no world changes occur) are from +25% white to -50% black.
