    This is entirely up to you and the type of story you want to write.

    A Song of Ice and Fire has entirely too much death for my tastes.

    The Dresden Files has entirely too much of the protagonist getting beat up for my tastes.

    Both are very popular series.

    Different readers are able to tolerate different amounts of action and conflict depending on their own personality and tastes. Just write it the way you want to and it will work for the readers who have similar preferences.
