Soldier Starting Class and Recommended Build | Demon's Souls PS5

This page covers the Soldier starting class for Demon's Souls for the PS5. Read on to learn about the starting stats, items, and gear for this class!

Soldier Traits

High Vitality and Endurance

The Soldier class has high Vitality and Endurance stats. The Strength and Dexterity stats are not low either, making this class made for melee battle. This is a sturdy starting class, but the lack of the Kite Shield in the beginning gives more merit to the Temple Knight, Knight, and Priest classes.

2 Types of Weapons

The Soldier starts with two different weapons: the Broadsword and the Short Spear. This allows beginners to test out the different movesets of various weapons, making this class good for experimentation.

Recommended Builds for Soldier

A melee build

Making use of Soldier's high Vitality for a melee build is a good idea. While high Vitality will not always be ideal for things like PVP, it is recommened for progressing in the story. Builds like Pure Strength or Dexterity Warrior will match with this playstyle well.
