In Dark Souls II, whenever you die, your character's Hollowing progresses a little more, reducing your Max Health slightly. However, I am unsure how far the Hollowing can progress, whether to a point of complete Hollowed or a limit on the Health reduction. Does anyone know?

    This will continue until it caps at 50% of maximum HP, unless the player has a sin level of wretch, which it will cap at 95% (source)

    @somebody it completely circumvents the system. Sure, it might be a simple answer, but people can't vote on it's accuracy this way. You could lie, and people can't vote it down while potentially misleading readers.

    @somebody don't let the length of an answer deter you from posting one. Take a look at this answer for example - super sort, but to the point and correct. Also, just cite the source that you got the information from! ☺

    @somebody There's really no rule against it. We want to be a good Q and A resource. This seems like a fairly reasonable question about DS 2. The answer could have been more complicated, so I don't see why it being simple means the question shouldn't be here.

According to user @somebody (comments of the question) and to that source:

This will continue until it caps at 50% of maximum HP, unless the player has a sin level of wretch, which it will cap at 95%.

As stated by Bart W in the comments, there is a ring that caps the HP loss, according to the wiki:

[...] stops HP reduction at 80% instead of 50%.

    You might want to add that there's a ring (link ) that caps the hp loss a lot earlier (the wiki contradicts itself on different pages as to whether it caps at 25% or 20% loss)

  • This should probably be marked as a Community Wiki, as it is re-posting an answer from the comments. Commented Apr 5, 2018 at 11:21
  • well, the answer precises "if you're not comfortable rep whoring". which I am comfortable with. I also quoted the source of the answer, so no plagiarism :) Commented Apr 5, 2018 at 12:41
