When killing bosses and some mini bosses you can get points of humanity.

Don't forget vagrant enemies, and I've gotten a point every time I've finished a black knight.

Rats have about a 1/20 or 1/30 chance to drop humanity as well.

I was nowhere near any enemies and I randomly got some humanity. Idk what it means. It might be kinda like when you get an extra flask from another player using kindling in their game. They might do something to trigger everyone in their area to get some free humanity : D

I read that if someone rates up one of your messages you get some humanity. Not sure though still reading up on it.

At the beginning of the game, when you first get to Firelink, the guy sat there explains that killing enemies slowly lets you gain humanity. It takes a very long time though from what I can gather.

No, you'll get an Estus Flask, however.

For humanity, here's something I said back in another thread, explaining how humanity drops work...

The monsters that drop humanity are: Butcher, Infested Ghoul (Blunt), Pisaca, Small Undead Rat, Large Undead Rat, Giant Undead Rat, Skeleton Baby, Snow Rat

Also, many NPCs (characters, not monsters) will drop humanity.

You receive humanity for killing a number of mobs without dying (automatically added to your humanity score), killing undead skeletons appeared to give me the humanity faster.

We're not talking about Humanity item drops. The poster said his counter moved from 00 to 01 randomly which means he had been walking around/killing mobs and he gained humanity somehow.

Ok, I just got a 'random' humanity. I had died very recently, so perhaps after killing a certain number of creatures your get a free point...

If any expert out there knows more about this, I'm sure we would all love the info

probably a vagrant enemy. someone died in their world, left humanity, never managed to collect it, and it become a living creature in yours. killed it, thus giving you a humanity.
