Souls are gained through various activities, and are the main currency of Dark Souls III. The most common method of gaining Souls is to kill enemies.

Enemies will drop 20% extra Souls if they are killed in one hit.

There are also Soul Items you pick up around the world and Interaction Points that grant Souls upon activation. They are unaffected by Soul boosting equipment.
