In order to access the area in Darkroot that allows for 7,000 souls per run you have to buy a crest for 20,000 souls from the blacksmith right before the area. It is worth it however, you'll make back your investment in like 3 runs.

Unless you can 1hit capras and taurus demons, not really. They give terrible amounts of souls.
Anor Londo, second bonfire. The knights give 900 souls per and are absolutely simple to kill. If you get the moonlight butterfly soul and a +10 shield, you can make an insane shield that has a special magic ability that'll 1 hit these knights, netting you 1080 souls per kill. There are 4 knights in a close proximity (one spear knight will need to be killed via normal methods...it likes to block the shield magic shot). I didn't time it but it's something around 4140 souls per minute, or faster depending on how quick you are.
