Souls are gained by doing the following:
1. Slaying enemies
2. Feeding items to Kingseeker Frampt
- The “Lost Undead” soul items contain fewer souls than what Frampt offers if they are fed to him.
- Boss souls from female bosses can be fed to Frampt for more than the amount obtained if the player consumes them.
3. Consuming items that give souls

Souls from enemies
Almost all enemies drop souls. How many are dropped depends on the enemy type, the current difficulty level (the higher the NG+, the more souls), and whether or not the player overkilled the opponent (dealing more than 150% of an enemy’s total HP in one hit).
Overkilling enemies grants around 20% more souls per kill. It is possible to further boost the amount of souls gained from killing enemies by wearing the Symbol of Avarice and/or the Covetous Silver Serpent Ring. The maximum percentage of souls attainable is 172.8% per kill.
