    Best way to farm souls?

    Post by Noob-of-Artorias on Fri May 04, 2012 7:24 pm

    I've been playing for awhile and I'm currently trying to raise my intelegence to 20 so I can effectively use the Greatsword of Artorias (going for a role-playing build) What I'm doing right now is killing silver knights in Anor Londo, I kill them in 2 hits so it's pretty fast, but I'm only getting maybe 4000 souls a minute.....any better way to do it, or am I on the right track?

    The silver serpent ring or the mimic head can net you more souls. Also the forest NPCs are good for farming.

    in the past I've found that the silver serpents ring and the baby skeleton room in the ToG can net you a nice amount of souls relatively fast. Every time I go there to farm humanity I end up with a ton of souls

    The best way to farm souls is doing Co-op. If you are in Anor Londo, each time you beat O & S you get 25k souls or even 75k souls if you are summoned by someone in NG +.
    You can also do Co-op at New Londo and Help with the four kings. Lots of souls there too.
    And must important... It so much fun playing in jolly cooperation.

    PvP is a great way to farm souls, and it's super fun.

    If you are in anor londo you can take a beat and become a darkwraith.

    Best way to farm souls is...*makes sure Tolvo is gone* going into the forest and summoning up a buddy and killing everyone who invades. It's literally the fastest way to level without deleting the patch. I'm not suggesting that you do it, I'm just answering your question is all :bom:

    I wonder if maybe that should be added to the guidelines, no discussing glitches, no advertising ganking.

    Thanks for the replies everyone

    To answer some questions, NG, SL 85, Faith 20, access to most of the areas, just beat the Bed of Chaos.

    I'd be more than happy to join in Jolly Cooperation, I like helping people whenever possible. I'm afraid I can't do the Forest Farming as I'm a member of the Forest Hunter Covenant (+2) I've been afraid to go into the painted world because my friend assures me that the boss is a pain in the ***.

    I think I'll try dropping my white sign in Anor Londo to help people take on O&S, that's a fun boss fight and it does net quite a few souls.

    I haven't even made it into the Catacombs lol, I was actually power leveling so I could effectively use my GS of Artorias (going for an Artorias Build, gonna get the shield on NG+)

    Ps3? I have quite a few builds in that co-op range if you want a hand with anything. I think most of them still have Nito as an available boss too. So if you want you could fight Nito with me for some souls. Add me if you'd like. Same name as here

    Painted World boss, Prescilla, isn't really difficult per se, it's cutting her tail off for the rare dagger that can be a pain. If you've beaten Seath, 4 Kings, Nito, O&S, any of those bosses, you won't have any problem with her.

    Xbox unfortunately, but thanks so much for the offer.

    This game really does have one of the best online communities available.

    For every helpful sunbro there's a total douche. I just got robbed blind last night. Co-oped with a rando last week, he messaged me to help him with some advice on trophy hunting, I helped him for awhile, said he needed some things for his Knights Honor and he took off after I handed them to him. Pretty much all the boss weapons I had with one of my builds, along with some other difficult to get stuff. This is after talking to the guy for over a week too. Helping him get all his spell trophies. People baffle me.

    No, nothing that can't be replaced. The only thing I really used that he got away with was my fury sword. He got that, DM Bow, Smough's Hammer, MLBfly Horn, umm a few shields, oh and a Golem Axe. I think that was it. Thankfully it came from a build whose pretty much all set on equipment. It's the principle of the thing though ya know? Like I've had people just slaughter me in PvP and then ask me for help and I help them. I'm not going to say no, unless maybe you did something like obscenely irritating like spam lag stabs. I literally have like 250 messages from him in message queue, just from me answering DkS questions for him. Then he does that. I don't even really require reciprocity, just a little respect would be nice when you help someone out.

    I guess I should say too though, this is the only time in DkS that this has ever happened to me. Couple times in Demon's I did trades with people and ended up being given useless things instead of what was offered, but I guess in my experience with it I've dealt with a lot more people who were straight up about it than people who weren't

    I curse him to be ganked endlessly in Darkroot Forest for the rest of eternity!

    Right? I literally got him his trophies. Actually gave him a Gwyn's soul the night before so he could get Sunlight Spear without having to bother with NG+. Getting pissed about it isn't going to solve anything at this point. Although I did have some choice words for him when it happened. I just hope that karma will do it's thing and I'll find him in a dark corner of the Catacombs with one of my more complete builds some time

    Having invaded him as he was muling over all of your gear, and his own over to a friend. You invade, chase them away then circle around and take everything back, plus interest. May the Karma be with you Plastic, always.
