    Losing my soul(s)

    Post by strangejoy on Wed Feb 22, 2012 10:43 am

    Does anyone know of a way to quickly dispose of my souls without also losing my humanity? I think I've already maxed out on most of the expensive consumables (lightning bolts, twinkling ttnite, dragonslayer arrows, purging stones, dung, green blossoms, red orbs, etc.), so that's not an option. I also don't want to level.

    Fyi, I'd like to do this to see if it alters the amount of souls that my opponents get for killing me.

    Buy 99 twinkling titanite, dump it, repeat. They are the priciest thing to buy, and can dump all in one go, unlike weapons where you have to dump one by one.

    Lol, that only sets me back 500K, right? Anyway, I'll be a sport. SL125, psn. I'll be online (psn: Eight_Way_Santa) at about 9:30 est tonight. Any hard humanity or dragon scales would be appreciated.

    NO!!!!!!!! upgrades man! try out buying all kinds of titanite and upgrade every piece of armor, weapons, shields, I have made it my goal to have almost everything attainable in this game and I have spent millions on it since I don't want to level.

    I've upgraded so much crap already. Anyway, I'm having some second thoughts about just dumping souls. I've set up a red orb exchange in the trading section. I assume some people will want to buy red orbs. I always seem to be short on them when I'm not a DW.

    Don't forget to max-out 99 of the items you use (like green blossoms and such) in your BB as well so you're holding 198 of each.

    I'm pretty sure all PvPers do that already.

    I do not believe the amount of souls you have has anything to do with how many someone gets for killing you.

    I have done a little experimenting with it myself. I had over 500,000 souls and the guy that killed me got 2000 and change, I went and spent nearly all of it, went back and invaded him again, and he got the exact same amount.

    After thousands of invasions I am pretty sure that the amount of souls you get has to do with level differences.

    If I invade a much higher level than myself and take him out I get a boatload of souls. If I beat someone only a few levels higher I only get a few thousand souls.

    I hate the guys who hide in the forest but yesterday I found one, he just stood there like an idiot using his fog ring, that sucker gave me 855k when I killed him can you believe that?

    Use your souls to upgrade weapons along the many paths and help fill out the wiki :O

    I agree that the soul level theory seems consistent with most pvp experience. However, it doesn't seem to explain everything. For instance, two hosts that killed me in the forest each reported that they got 200K souls from me. I'm SL125, so they should have only received a fraction of 99,180, which is the price required to level up from SL124 to SL125. I've also heard of people getting enormous quantities of souls (several million) in ways that don't match up with the soul level theory.

    My suspicion is that hosts might receive the greater of (1) a derivative of soul level; and (2) a derivative of held souls. Lextune, perhaps 500K is not enough to active #2.

    I'm very sure that it's not by level difference but by level itself. If you kill a Lvl 120, either while being 60 or 120 you will get the same amount of souls.

    Hmmm... I can upgrade twinkling ttnite items, but it looks like you guys really need people with chunks and slabs. Am I wrong?

    True, I'm not certain how many different items using twinking are complete. If you want to do a look through and fill any of those in that may be missing it would be greatly appreciated ^^
