As of now. The largest amount of souls I've permanently lost stands at roughly 28k. I need to make a run for my current blood stain which holds about 53k so maybe that number will be revised after I get back from our Wrestlemania 31 party.

Over 40K due to ML :/

I think 30k, because I got cocky and went to do something I shouldn't. There have been multiple times where I've yelled out "why did I do that????" but that was one of the bigger burns.

Like 11000. I'm pretty obsessive about leveling up when I've collected enough souls/blood thingies.

37k because the game bugged out. They were inside of an enemy but when the enemy moved the 2 glowy eyes containing the souls stayed in place, floating in mid air. When I killed the enemy I did not get my stuff back.

Now that hurts more then anything.

Oh, around 88k. Walked into a boss fight unknowingly. Died. Ran back frantically, got lost, and died again before I found the fog door.

I did that early on for a loss of 8,000 or so. It hurt so much in the early game that I decided to just use a Bold Hunter's Mark every single time I see a new boss, then just run back since I know the route. It makes the fights considerably less stressful. No exceptions!

About 80-90k. It was late enough in the game that I didn't give a flying duck though, so yeah. Never lost a big enough amount to bum me out.

Yeah. It just hurts an extra bit more cause the game glitched out and as Gene Snitsky used to say "IT WASN'T MY FAULT."

So far only 8k. I'm sure that number will go up the farther I get.

Something like 15K. Earned from a couple of enemies that net like 3500 each. I was getting impatient. Otherwise, didn't die twice that much. I believe only twice so far.

Lost around 83k earlier today, due to a unexpected boss. And then I fell off a roof while trying to get back. Would've payed for quite a few levels for where I'm at, but oh well.

Lost 40 in the Forbidden Woods earlier today. Pretty sure I cleared out the entire place and ran around lost in there for about 30 minutes before stumbling into the boss fight and dying within 20 seconds. Speaking of, can someone give me or link me to the most direct route to the boss? Do not feel like wasting all that time again.

70,000+ in the Forbidden Woods about an hour ago. It was the first time I ventured in that deep and just after I picked up the Graveguard armour set I got surrounded by snake creatures, I went back to get them and got killed on the way - r.i.p those blood echoes

~5k, the ones I had before I could level up. I've just made it to the Forbidden Woods though, so based on this thread it's about to increase drastically.

62,000-something after doing multiple farming runs within the Unseen Village. I got power punched from one of those tall dudes.

My secret weapon against not getting a pile of echos locked into a boss encounter is the mighty BOLD hunters mark. What's that boss? You want to fight now? No thanks, I have 70k soul-echos and you're going to kill me. Behold my boldness!

I think I lost 40k due to exploring the wrong area at the wrong time. I ran up to the gate to the unseen village weeeeellll before they open it (hadn't even gone into forbidden woods) and uh...I don't see a spoiler tag on this thead, so i'll just say that room will instantly kill you if you examine the wrong thing. And then they leave the stain right where you'll instantly die again.

I am as well, but I'm kind of afraid of over-levelling. The only pile of echoes I lost so far was a little over than 9k in that Tomb of Oedon event.

@fredchuckdave: Question. I just lost my souls cause frankly I can't find my blood stain. All enemies in the area are dead none had my souls and the area is wiped clean. Is there some sort of unknown timer on them or what? Kinda at a loss with this one.

@mordukai: Did you go back to the Hunters Dream before going to look for it? I've done that, and they just vanish. Not sure if that is on purpose or bugged. But I've done that three times, and all three times the stain was nowhere to be found, and no enemy let me recover.

I also just almost lost 145K echos. I was in the forgotten forest, I died to one of the stupid pigs. On my way back I walked off the wrong cliff for a short cut, and just as I was about to hit the bottom it said I recovered. So I died, but got the echos back to go retrieve again. Not sure what happened there, but I'll take it.

Almost lost 150k yesterday, barely managed to kill the weird witch thing in a chalice to get them back. I think the most would be around 50-ishk? Not 100% sure.

80k to one of those eyeball head guys that throw frenzy inducing spears at you, I killed him but I died by a combination of frenzy and poison, then fell down an elevator shaft on the way back :\

Lost 52k, was semi pissed but got over it. Went to backup my save into the cloud and apparently, I mistakenly wiped my local save with the old one that was in the cloud. Didn't realize it til I booted up the game today and realized I was level 40 instead of 65, and that I had lost about 12 hours and 3 bosses worth of progress. Sighed deeply and just started the game over.

I lost 25K and 46K due to a bug that removed my blood stain. Legitimately, I lost 22K because I was killed by the guy with the sack that takes you to a prison so I never got the chance to retrieve them.

You can just run up the middle quickly, he'll never hit you, he always fires beyond you, and chances are only the dude with the pitchfork will come up behind you.

Only 13k, I was in co-op with a friend and I said fuck it let's fight the boss rather than waste this insight, and nearly had it but got wrecked. On the way back I didn't realise the stupid wolfs do poison damage and died far quicker than I anticipated.

You can get those souls back fairly easy by just... running. Just saying.

Lost 35k running around one of the nightmares. But that's only a level or two at this point, so it's not that big a deal. My biggest loss was running around Old Yarnham and getting wrecked by a dog on the way back to try to get my blood stain from the boss room. 20k souls, around 6+ levels when I was having a lot of trouble with the boss, and a terrible setback at the time.

About 30k in Pthumerian Chalice 4 to the level 3 boss there. That guy looked real cool but sucks a lot to fight.

42k due to apparently walking in to a boss battle without even having to open a door or anyting. i really miss the mist gates to show what your entering.
everything was going swimmingly and i was just breezing thought the map and then it happened.

and it was at the first boss so i could not have spend it on lvling

@grillbar: How the hell did you have 42k souls and not fight the 1st or 2nd boss?

I didn't lose them, but I found myself navigating the 2nd half of the Forbidden Forest with over 100k Blood Echos. I found the elevator shortcut from the barn-like building, but ever did find the door that was right next to the Lantern. I then proceeded to get lost for over an hour and managed kill everything in the area while I searched for the boss. Decided against fighting the boss with all those dolla dolla bills on me though, so I boned home and levelled up.

Got y'all beat, sadly. Just lost over 700k. I had just finished NG+ (true ending, you get a TON of souls) and dove straight into NG++. No problem, right? Right. Except I went to fight Cleric Beast, and he picked me up and threw me through the game world. I clipped through the floor, fell into an abyss for like 20 seconds, and when I ran back there, sure enough, bloodstain gone. I was pretty sour, that's still like 5 levels at my level (120ish).

i lost about 2 million last night. but my build is finished so i don't really have anything to spend blood on with this character.

it's weird though. i died in a fall and when i came back i could not find the blood stain for the life of me.
