You need Frampt and maybe Homeward. Start in Firelink and go to the undead female merchant and buy 99 prism stones. Then go to the male undead merchant and buy 99 knives, 99 firebombs and 999 wooden arrows. Then warp back to firelink and sell them to frampt.

This is excellent, thank you! The person above forgot that not everyone plays online or receives patch updates. Some of us like to play the game as the developers originally intended! After reading some of the patch fixes, I'm glad I didn't do it. Humanity and souls are more abundant, enemy placement is easier, serious nerfs on things like Crystal Ring Shield and lightning elemental weapon damage. SOme needed to be fixed make it more enjoyable for gamers (especially in PVP, hence the elemental weapon and other nurfs), however somethings just make it too easy. I kind of like the fact that humanity and certain items are hard to come by in the unpatched version; it makes me work harder and appreciate those titanite slab drops all the more. Unpatched version is KING!!

far better in the archives prison and quicker too, from the bonfire kill the 3 crystal soldiers and drop out the cell on to the ledge using the extra prison cell key, use the spell fall control and you can do it very fast after a few times, follow round the ledge jump off and down the ladder or jump over the ladder for quickness, turn around kill the 3 snakes with backstabs if they follow on the ladder so wait a few secs or they will ambush you ,then kill all the squid monsters , equip the gold serpent ring if you want more humanity drops (and have humanity at least 10 for even more) or the silver serpent ring for extra, then homeward bone back and repeat 1 trip around I can do now in 30 - 45 secs and net around 15000 souls. I spent an hour there and levelled up 88 times and gained max humanity on player and in inventory.

PRE-PATCH: BY FAR, the quickest and easiest farming method is in Darkroot Garden...HOWEVER everyone goes about it the hard way and I have absoutely no idea why. likes to run forward, aggro all or most of the NPCs, then run back. This simply takes too long to do and is unreliable, because the NPCs may double team you or decide they don't want to run off the cliff. As long as you have the UNPATCHED VERSION of the game where the first invisible knight still respawns, this is the quickest and safest method. Simply run down the steps from the bonfire and aggro ONLY THE INVISIBLE KNIGHT, run back towards the right side of the steps where the cliff is (there's a green dot on the cliff wall... stand directly in front of it) and place your back to the wall with your shield up. The knight will roll/jump/bounce off your shield and fall to her death. Simply run back to the bonfire and you've just made an easy 3000 souls in about 26-30 seconds. Sometimes she may drop down beside you instead of rolling off, but if you keep her pressed to the cliff edge with your shield up, her attacks will make her bounce off your shield and fall to her death. 3000 souls in 30 seconds... that's 7000 souls per minute with very little room for mistakes or NPC glitches. This is by far the quickest and most reliable method for serious farming. Equip the Silver Serpent RIng to boost the amount of souls you get by 20%, bringing the total to 3600 per 30 seconds. At 7200 souls per minute with little room for error, that's an easy and reliable 72,000 souls in as little as 10 minutes. I'm currently SL102, and farming for levels is starting to take some time now. I farmed 300,000 souls this morning and it really only took me somewhere around an hour. It simply baffles me that everyone loves to aggro ALL npcs and work harder for less! Godspeed

Correction: 3,000 souls in 30 seconds equals 6,000 souls per minute! Also, besides the Silver Serpent RIng, you can also equip the symbol of avarice headgear to further increase the total soul bonus to 44% more than normal. This is incredibly useful for farming, since these two items will give you an almost 150% boost to souls acquired.

I like the prision in the dukes archives best for farming, you can get 150k souls or more plus tons of humanity in less than one hour, with both serpent rings and the sign of avarice, you get almost 10k only from the squids plus another 1000 from the serpent guards running towards the stairs. I also like the crystal cave, the golems might drop different ropes of titanite and the clams drop twinkling titanite , also at a 100k per hour, leave your summon next to deaths fog door and you are set to make a living out of it, same with new londo once you clear the elevator shortcut, leave your summon sign by the boss fog door and farm the darkwraiths, just risk-free backstabbing

Dark root Garden Hidden body+Slumbering Dragoncrest Ring+high crit weapon Equip the silver serpent ring & the slumbering ring then as you exit the bonfire, cast hidden body. Sprint towards the caster, back stab. Sprint towards the thief on the hill, back stab. Re-cast hidden body again outside of view of the cleric, then backstab the cleric & bandit. Homeward bone, Rinse & Repeat. 10k souls per run and each run takes between 30-45s. Easy.
