Souls are invaluable in Dark Souls. They first really come into play in the area known as Undead Burg, where you meet a merchant who sells all kinds of precious weapons, armour and enchantments.
The easiest way to get souls is to kill enemies. When you die, you have a certain period of time to reach the spot where you died. You’ll see a green glow in that spot. When you press activate at the spot, you get back the souls you lost up to that point. Therefore, in an area near a bonfire where you know you can kill enemies fairly easily – preferably quite a lot of them. Kill as many as possible and leave just one standing. Now let him kill you. Make sure it’s fairly near the bonfire so that you haven’t got to run too far to reach your death spot and regain those lost souls.
All the enemies you’ve just killed will respawn after death. Go to the spot where you died and regain your souls, now kill all the enemies you previously killed. You’re effectively gaining double the amount of souls for just rinsing and repeating the same actions. Do this as many times as you want to stock up souls.
