What are Bell Bearings?

advertisement

Bell Bearings are key items obtained by various means in Elden Ring. Each has a specific name and rank and they have a very specific purpose.
After obtaining a Bell Bearing, giving them to the Twin Maiden Husks in Roundtable Hold unlocks the sale of specific items, with rewards depending on the Bell Bearing given.

Bell Bearing Sources and How To Unlock Their Rewards

  • Killing NPCs or looting their dead bodies
  • Killing specific bosses
  • Found in the world

Killing NPCs or Looting Their Dead Bodies

If you kill certain NPCs, whether they attack you in the wild, you let your curiosity get the best of you, or they die as part of their quest, they will often drop Bell Bearings.
Moreover, if the NPC was also a merchant, anything they would have sold will appear at the Twin Maiden Husk shop, meaning you won’t lose access to unique spells, etc.

Killing Specific Bosses

Killing bosses, particularly in areas that are focused on Smithing, (like the Crystal Tunnel minidungeons in various areas) will reward Bell Bearings. These Bell Bearings will typically allow you to infinitely purchase the smithing stones that are available in those tunnels, but some unlock other things.

Found In The World

Several excellent Bell Bearings can be found on corpses around The Lands Between. If you see something shiny, be sure to pick it up!
