In this Elden Ring bell bearing locations guide, we’ll explain how to use these items, and show you map locations for each of the 53 bell bearing items in the game along with the merchant items (like Smithing Stones) they are associated with.

Elden Ring’s bell bearings are items dropped by NPCs or (mini)bosses (plus a few you find in chests) that allow you to move a vendor’s wares to another location. Specifically, you’ll be able to offer a bell bearing to the Twin Maiden Husks in Roundtable Hold to add items to their purchase option.

Elden Ring Limgrave bell bearing locations

There are eight bell bearings to find (or murder for) in Limgrave. They are: Bernhal’s bell bearing, Bone Peddler’s bell bearing, Gostoc’s bell bearing, Kale’s bell bearing, Patches’ bell bearing, and Nomadic Merchant’s bell bearings [1], [2], and [3].

For the merchants, you just have to visit and kill them. For the others:

  • Bernhal’s bell bearing. Bernhal is the soldier who hangs out at the Warmaster’s Shack in the northern part of West Limgrave. You can kill him for his bell bearing, but he’s involved with late-game quests in Volcano Manor and Crumbling Farum Azula, so it might be best to leave him alone for now.
  • Bone Peddler’s bell bearing. Visit the Warmaster’s Shack in northern West Limgrave at night, and you’ll be invaded by a Bell Bearing Hunter. Defeat them to claim this bell bearing.
  • Gostoc’s bell bearing. Gostoc is the NPC who offers to open the main gate of Stormveil Castle for you, and then moves through the castle with you until you defeat Godrick, at which point he’ll stay at the Godrick the Grafted site of grace venting his frustrations. Kill him (at any point) to collect his bell bearing.
  • Kale’s bell bearing. Kale is the merchant you meet at the Church of Elleh. You’ll need to speak with him as part of Blaidd’s quest, so don’t go killing him for his bell bearing right away.
  • Patches’ bell bearing. You’ll find Patches inside Murkwater Cave in West Limgrave. Patches will travel around (with more than a couple betrayals involved) until he ends up in Volcano Manor late in the game. If you choose to kill him in Murkwater Cave instead of sparing him, you’ll grab his bell bearing.

There are three bell bearings to find (or murder for) in Weeping Peninsula. They are: Sellen’s bell bearing, and Nomadic Merchant’s bell bearing [4] and Isolated Merchant bell bearing [1].

For the merchants, you just have to visit and kill them. For the others:

  • Sellen’s bell bearing. Sorceress Sellen has a rather complicated quest, so it’s not as simple as just visiting the Witchbane Ruins and picking up her bell bearing — in fact, you’ll meet her first in the Waypoint Ruins in Limgrave, but that’s not her physical body (it’s a whole thing).

There are 11 bell bearings to find (or murder for) in Liurnia. They are: Blackguard’s bell bearing, Iji’s bell bearing, Meat Peddler’s bell bearing, Miriel’s bell bearing, Pidia’s bell bearing, Seluvis’s bell bearing, Smithing-Stone Miner’s bell bearing [1], Thops’s bell bearing and Nomadic Merchant’s bell bearings [5] and [6] and Isolated Merchant’s bell bearing [2].

For the merchants, you just have to visit and kill them. For the others:

  • Blackguard’s bell bearing. You’ll meet Blackguard Big Boggart at the Boilprawn Shack in southern Liurnia. His quest involve’s Rya’s stolen necklace and more boiled crustaceans than you’d expect. If you keep him alive, he’ll move to Leyndell and be involved in the Dung Eater’s quest. Kill him at either location to pick up his bell bearing.
  • Iji’s bell bearing. You’ll find the giant Smithing Master and, later, War Counselor Iji at the Road to the Manor site of grace where you can buy Somber Smithing stones from him. He’s part of both Blaidd’s and Ranni’s quests, so don’t attack him right away.
  • Meat Peddler’s bell bearing. Visit the Church of Vows at night, and you’ll get invaded by a(nother) Bell Bearing Hunter.
  • Miriel’s bell bearing. Miriel, Pastor of Vows is the turtle pope at the Church of Vows in eastern Liurnia. Killing them will earn you their bell bearing, but at what cost?
  • Pidia’s bell bearing. Pidia, Carian Servant is a merchant you’ll find inside Caria Manor, but you can’t actually reach him until after you complete Caria Manor and then drop down from the Three Sister’s plateau. You also can’t kill Pidia directly. His death comes about as part of Ranni’s quest, at which point you can pick up his bell bearing.
  • Seluvis’s bell bearing. You’ll meet Seluvis as part of Ranni’s quest. His machinations are complicated (and probably involve Pidia?), but when he meets his end, you can loot his bell bearing from his corpse.
  • Smithing-Stone Miner’s bell bearing [1]. You’ll earn this bell bearing for defeating the Crystalian boss inside the Raya Lucaria Crystal Cave.
  • Thops’s bell bearing. You’ll first meet Thops at the Church of Irith just after entering Liurnia where he’ll ask you for a Glintstone Key. You can kill him right away, or give him a key and visit his corpse inside the Academy of Raya Lucaria at the Schoolhouse Classroom site of grace.

Bell bearings and the Twin Maiden Husks

Over on the north side of Roundtable Hold (where you find the Table of Lost Grace site of grace), you’ll find the Twin Maiden Husks. It’s the same hallway where Sir Gideon Ofnir, that silent guy leaning against the wall, and Nepheli are found at various times.

They start out selling a few important items like the Blue and White Cipher rings, an armor set, and a handful of basic weapons. Whenever you pick up a bell bearing, bring it to the Twin Maiden Husks and offer it to them. This will add a handful of new items to their shop. If the bell bearing came from a vendor, for example, it will add all of their wares to the Twin Maiden Husk shop.


Elden Ring merchant bell bearings

Every merchant you meet — the Nomadic Merchants, Isolated Merchants, and Abandoned Merchants — all across the Lands Between will drop a bell bearing when you kill them.

Collecting these is a good way to move all of their goods to one location, turning the Twin Maiden Husks into a one-stop shop.
