The Demon’s Souls Luck Glitch, also known as the Gold Coin Glitch, is a new exploit discovered in Demon’s Souls (2020) that allows the player to accumulate over 80,000 points in the Luck stat in a matter of minutes. This exploit requires a new item, the Gold Coin, to be executed, hence one of its names. This glitch, when paired with the Luck scaling boss weapon the Blueblood Sword (craftable at Blacksmith Ed using a Broken Sword and Maiden Astraea‘s Pureblood Demon Soul), allows players to deal nearly 10,000 damage with a single swing of their weapon and kill almost any enemy in one hit.

How to Do The Demon’s Souls Luck Glitch
Warning: After executing this glitch your character’s Soul Level will be 999 and the Souls required to level will be broken, rendering you unable to level up further. Make sure you have 18 points in Strength, Dexterity, Magic, and Faith so you can wield the Blueblood Sword. Then make sure your other stats (particularly Vitality and Endurance) are at satisfactory levels before using the exploit.
To execute this exploit you need one Gold Coin, a new item dropped by the Officials that appear in Boletaria and Stonefang Tunnel areas. This item has a pretty low drop rate, so it is a good idea to make sure World Tendency is Pure Black in the area you are farming and you are equipping the Providential Ring.
The best place to farm the Officials is 2-2 (The Tunnel City). Go straight ahead, take the left tunnel down past the exploding minecarts, then kill the official near the elevator switch. Lower the elevator so you can jump into the pit and die to save yourself a walk back to the spawn point.
Once you have the coin you are ready for the next step of the glitch. Head back to the Nexus, use the Gold Coin in front of the Maiden in Black, then speak to her and tell her you want to level up. As soon as you enter the Soul Level menu you sould see your Soul Level and Luck stat begin to skyrocket. It will run up to about 84,000 before maxing out, at which point you can exit the menu.
If you want to reverse the glitch, go into the Old King Allant battle and let him hit you with his Soul Level draining grab attack.
This glitch is effective as of 11/20/2020 but may be patched out in the future.
