Demon's Souls PS5

Barbarian Starting Class and Best Build

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

Barbarian Traits

High Vitality and Strength

Barbarian has the highest of these stats out of all classes with a Vitality and Strength of 15. Endurance is also quite high for this class. This class is completely unequipped for Magic, so the Pure Strength build is a good choice.

No equipment

The most obvious feature of the Barbarian class is the lack of armor or rings. Due to this, regardless of this higher Vitality, this class is extremely easy to kill and could be difficult for beginners. If you choose this class, having low durability is something that you will need to be prepared for.

Recommended builds for Barbarian

Pure Strength

Make use of Barbarian's Strength stat by going with the Pure Stregnth build. Aside from this build, other classes may be more suited for other builds, so we can only recommened Pure Strength here.
