How to choose a weapon in Demon's Souls?

Players create builds around specific weapons that have good movesets, deal significant damage, or are easily obtained. Some players choose weapons for their cosmetic appearance, but in most cases it is advisable to refer to the scaling and upgrading path of weapons to determine if the output is beneficial to the character in pve, pvp or both. The following categories of weapons have details on their base damage, and all individual pages feature upgrade charts.

      I don't know what happens but now demon's souls let me play online with my account. I bought the game on may 2017. I was farming pure bladestone killing the BP with double katana on 4-2 and then exit and enter the game. on the fourth try the game shows me the licence to play online. Does now demon's servers let new players join online ? This happened on 22/07/2017 on 11:10 am (italy fuse). let me know what you're thinking about that
