Souls

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.

The Soul Items you pick up around the world will change once you enter NG+, granting more Souls than the Soul Items in NG. They are unnaffected by Soul boosting equipment.
