Whats the most souls you have lost at once? I am about an hour and a half in with my level 7 Warrior build and i just beat the Taurus Demon, had close to 8,000 souls and i got roasted by the dragon on the bridge, worst part about it was that i knew it was there and just forgot that it first flames from the back position, i was expecting the first blast to come from the front... uhg and i contemplated just goin back and leveling up first before heading that way...

Lost 3000 souls to the butterfly demon, not really a huge loss.

About 9k souls. I was facing the Hydra, went to close to it without realizing that the water suddenly turned into an endless abyss and fell to my death. After that, I tried rushing back to it but a tree grabbed me and killed me, which made me lose my 9k souls.

None yet (none that I haven't picked up afterwards anyway), but in Demon's Souls I lost 12000+ souls; after defeating the flamelurker I decided that going back to spend my souls is too big of a hassle and I just decided to walk to the next checkpoint...
 
And hey, there was a giant fucking dragon who punched me to death.

I lost 20,000 souls in Sen's Fortress.

#6 Edited by TheSeductiveMoose (3617 posts) -

Lost 12000 and 4 humanities when I by accident rolled off the bridge just after the bonfire in Undead Burg twice.

#7 Edited by Chop (1991 posts) -

Around 40000.

Fucking Bed of Chaos...

#8 Posted by A_Dog (743 posts) -

Only 7,000, although it was due to a rat knocking me off a bridge twice.

#9 Posted by ZimboDK (848 posts) -

Don't have Dark Souls, but lost close to 55k souls in Demon's Souls. I just couldn't help but push on, even though I knew it was a bad idea. Didn't play for several days after that.

#10 Posted by TobbRobb (4554 posts) -

4k, Reading about you guys suddenly made me feel better about that.
 
I wouldn't want to know how much I've lost in total though....

#11 Posted by TaliciaDragonsong (8698 posts) -

Around 8k I think, I went 2h to clear a few dudes so I could get my souls back quick but they proceeded to clear me.
 
Ouch, lesson learned.

This... I got all the way through the fortress with all those souls, then died at the top, then died on the way there... typical story, I was only bummed for a few minutes though. After Demon's Souls you just get used to losing souls like that.

#13 Posted by Bernoulli (154 posts) -

I lost 2000 to those poison guys in Drake Valley or whatever. I feel bad knowing dudes lost 55k+ :(

#14 Posted by Nekromantix87 (41 posts) -

I just lost 12,000 this morning. Made my way down the Great Hollow and got died while heading for the Ash Lake bonfire. As I was making my way down the Great Hollow, I fell down to my death.

I don't think I was supposed to be down there right now, though. Everything was taking a long time to kill.

#15 Posted by Animasta (14633 posts) -

12k, maybe? I had just gotten the 10k souls for killing the dragon, only to die twice in really really dumb ways.

#16 Posted by MiniPato (2714 posts) -

Lost 28k. I think you can regain lost souls if Kirk invades your world, since I gained around 28k souls from killing him.

#17 Posted by hungrynun (444 posts) -

95k.

Yep. I was pretty mad.

#18 Posted by SuperfluousMoniker (2906 posts) -

I lost about 10,000 and 11 humanity in Sen's fortress. The mimic killed me and then I fucked up and died on the first two lizards at the entrance. Worth it for the lightning spear though, that thing owns.

#19 Posted by SuperfluousMoniker (2906 posts) -
@supaman900s: By the way, if you hug the left wall going down that bridge the dragon won't shoot. You can run all the way to the alcove opposite the stairs and it won't do jack until you try going for the stairs.
#20 Posted by Nentisys (883 posts) -

Most I have lost is like 11k.

#21 Posted by RobotHamster (4170 posts) -

None cause I haven't gotten the game yet :(

#22 Posted by SmiteOfHand (83 posts) -

I haven't suffered a huge loss yet, but in Demon's Souls I took a hit around 40-50k. A long break was taken after that.

#23 Posted by SirOptimusPrime (1915 posts) -

Hmm...something like 20k for DkSouls.

However, losing about 100k in Demon's Souls almost made me cry. Then I farmed the reaper, and didn't give a shit.

#24 Posted by supermike6 (3530 posts) -

I'm on the verge of losing 5000 if I can't beat that damn Capra Demon next time.

#25 Posted by Yummylee (21204 posts) -

Around 12K when I was near enough trapped within the Land of The Giants.

I lost about 17k in Sen's Fortress. Not really the end of the world, but it was still unfortunate.

#27 Posted by kaithefoolish (8 posts) -

like 25,000 after the false king soul sucked me... so I didnt feel bad doing the rotting arrow cheap way to kill him later.

#28 Posted by Nadril (523 posts) -

Something like 25-30k. Don't even remember where... probably Sen's Fortress though. 

#29 Edited by johe0 (66 posts) -

100k and 9 humanity while grinding Anor Londo.

I wanted to get absolved for breaking a covenant, and I needed some 110k souls to do so. After I lost em, I just gave up on it.

I would have torn my spleen out.
#31 Posted by Humanity (8714 posts) -

I make it a point to spend all my souls before embarking on any new exploring or going against bosses. If I have 5k and my next stat point is 6.5k I will grind that amount out before trying to take on anything.

It's saved me a lot of tears.

#32 Posted by liquidmatt (230 posts) -

Yet to get Dark Souls, but I lost 12,000 to the Flamelurker the first time I faced it in Demon's.

#33 Posted by musclerider (587 posts) -

Around 40k in the second part of the forest. Killed all the guys who drop 1-3k souls and then got surrounded by tree dudes and one of them grabbed me.

I'm totally going to cry about it when I play this and lose souls :(

Wait until the game totally screws you over.

I had a relatively small amount of souls compared to everyone else here, but it's early on and I don't have any good shit yet so every soul counts. Also worth mentioning that I had 3 humanity. Then I get to the bridge. No biggie, I know about the Dragon. I avoid his initial attack and wait for him to get in position. I book the fuck out of it. I run like a motherfucker. Run. Run run run. I get to the stairs and all of the sudden there's fire everywhere even though the Dragon never moved. I had no indication on when the attack was going to start. It just happened without moving him. So, my souls are right there at the stairs and I've got no idea how to get there without dying instantly.

Pretty sure I'm fuckaducked.

Sounds rough, dude. If you do lose all your souls, will you give up?

#37 Posted by n3cromung3r (9 posts) -

The most I've lost at once is 33k, I had just defeated Gaping Dragon and got murdered twice on the way to the swamp.

#38 Posted by Sitoxity (551 posts) -

Just over 10,000 souls and my Humanity was around 6.

#39 Posted by destruktive (1069 posts) -

6k is the max I think.

Felt kinda bad :(

#40 Posted by Shadowcoust (38 posts) -

About 40k at Four Kings

#41 Posted by McShank (1629 posts) -

I was farming Quelaag and had about 100k souls. I was human almost my entire time playing but had only been invaded once. After i got out of a battle i got invaded and got killed thanks to the rock throwing giants.. On my way back i ressed and turned human (Like a dumbass) and got invaded by the same person and was killed thanks to the sludge water.. Was the closest I have ever been to breaking a game in half.

#42 Posted by Jonathan_Strange (6 posts) -

Shockingly only 2,500, but I'm not nearly as far as most of you.

#43 Posted by mason (258 posts) -

8000. Was not expecting that stupid NPC phantom Kirk to appear while I was sneaking up on a basilisk. I got gassed and cursed while defending myself. Died a second time when trying to reach my bloodstain so I could get enough souls to un-curse myself.

I probably wouldn't have messed up the fight so badly if I realized at the time it was just an AI controlled phantom. Somehow I play much worse whenever I think it's an actual person controlling the phantom. Suffice to say, I hate invasions.

But 8000 isn't that bad in the grand scheme of things. I know that later in the game, those numbers are easy to come by.

#44 Posted by CptBedlam (4449 posts) -

20k in Blighttown.

#45 Edited by Bobby_The_Great (1002 posts) -

56,000... sigh. On the stupid Great Grey Wolf Sif... I was farming the area, fought the said giant wolf, died. Went back to fight the boss/get souls back and forgot about the invisible bandit and he backstabbed me and killed me in one hit. I almost cried.

#46 Posted by Tophat666 (229 posts) -

I think the most I've lost in this was around 7000+ Souls & 5 Humanities for this game. I've lost around 50,000 altogether Im pretty sure.

But back in Demon's Souls, I lost 100K souls in a NG+1 & i'm nowhere near the easy grind spot on that playthrough. D=

I've been good about not dying with a ton of souls in this game, if I think I'm going to be killed I spend them first.

#47 Posted by Errordotocx (119 posts) -

8,000 souls and 8 humanity.

#48 Posted by supamon (1333 posts) -

20k and 4 humanity in sen's fortress. Got knocked off and killed at the last swinging blade trap at the top. Became reckless and got myself pincered between a snakeman in front, trap arrows at the back. I dropped my controller in shock.

#49 Posted by LegionVsNinja (53 posts) -

I lost 17000+ and 6 humanities when I fell into an unseen shaft in the Depths. Got cursed, too. A couple of minutes later my upstairs neighbor came downstairs and knocked on the door. "Is everything okay in there? I heard screaming, and I just want to make sure you're okay."

#50 Posted by RandomInternetUser (6789 posts) -

At once, the most I have lost is 4k. Overall, I've probably lost around 15k or possibly 20k at the most.
