120k. The Bed of Chaos is the only part so far where I've thought the game was being completely unfair.
So I just hit the testicles on it's back? Okay... *falls in surprise hole*
I think it was something 9 billion. I googled how much xp you needed to max out everything and used cheat engine to give it to myself. I had to get up to go do something before I could redeem them and when I put my hand down it landed on my keyboard and the guy walked off the edge into the abyss.
As for legitimately losing it, I think it was something like 30-40k. It was the first time I met one of those dark knight guys and had spent a few hours grinding before hand. I was frustrated after he like 1 shot me and I ran back without thinking and just got raped the whole way.
Once you've maxed all you need to statwise losing 50k and up at times isn't a big deal. The worse times are early on when your just scraping by to get to the next bonfire and you lose them. Many times in the early game I lost 5k here and there, which is a real bummer. I think I had far worse things happen to me in Demon Souls though. Those Mindflayers lost me many souls.
12 million and 99 humanities :(
I was trying the duke skip and almost pulled it off; the only problem was that I landed on the outside ledge of the balcony at which point I tried to go around and reach the rotating stair, only to fall to my death(tried to quit as fast as possible but failed :( ).
Didn't have any rings of sacrifice(already used all the ones for the playthrough) and couldn't pull off the jump the second time, but I saw my bloodstain on the stupid ledge while falling to my death :|
In the end I was already at a good soul level, I bought every consumable item and material that I needed beforehand so it wasn't that big of a deal(Souls lose a looot of value when you start doing pvp).
150k souls or so.
Was farming the giants in Anor Londo at the first bonfire and needed to go back to the blacksmith in Undead Parish (I haden't gotten the lordvessel yet), so I had to go through Sen's Fortress. I died right after getting out of the cage from the elevator shortcut and when I went down the elevator again, I had to take the other cage closest to the lizard that is at the bottom and he body blocked me so I couldn't get out of the cage while the female lizard threw lightning at me from above.
Pretty sure I also panicked alittle bit when it happened, and that probably didn't help :-)
50'000. I dropped them when Seath killed me in the battle that you can't win at the top of the archives and then lost them when I went human to kindle the nearest bonfire to have more Estus to make it back up there and got invaded by some Shotel wielder who kept smacking me through my block back when I didn't know what the Shotel was. That severely pissed me off at the time. I thought the guy was cheating or something.
This topic is pretty old, but I recently ran into some bullshit, and I need to vent.
So, I'm in NG+ in Demon's Souls. Gotta fight the Flamelurker. Didn't like fighting him in NG, but hey, I'm beef! I got this, right?
No. No I don't. Not at all. he's down to around 25% health, and begins to spam his fire bomb shit.
First hit knocks my stamina all the way down, second hurts pretty badly, third isn't looking so good, and fourth offed me. I was staggered after each hit as well, so rolling wasn't gonna work.
Guess what? I lost over 500K souls. I had them since before the end of NG, and they're gone.
Oh, but it wasn't because of the Flamelurker's dumb spam tomfoolery, but because I FELL TO MY DEATH.
Then, I went outside and began to murder every person I saw.
I was running around in the area where that golden fog door is after beating Ceaseless Discharge. I saw a treasure chest after going through the three taurus demons. After killing that one hanging worm, I ran for the chest, and got annihilated by four of those fucking things. Upon respawning, I somehow and for some stupid reason ran and jumped off the walkway and to my character's death. I lost close to 40,000 souls. I was pretty pissed off.
For the record, this is my first play through on the first game. I played up to NG+3 on the second one. I'm pretty sure I've missed all kinds of shit on this first go around.
Not that many souls, but I was so elated when I beat the Bell Gargoyles on my first try (after hearing they were hard) that I started blasting the Black Knight 2k pinball music and running around the roof you fight them on. I fell off the roof and lost the 13k souls that I had. A friend of mine was in the room and thought it was hilarious, and now she wont stop mentioning it whenever I play Dark Souls.
I haven't lost that many yet, but the sad part was loosing seven humanity... I found out later that they up your discovery rate and are stored in the bloodstain with the souls, and I didn't go back for it as I thought "what the hell, it was only 200 souls". Hard lesson indeed.
