Bell Bearings are a curious type of item in Elden Ring, as they make shopping and acquring important items so much easier than traipsing all over the Lands Between. There's no doubt you're going to require the services of the many merchants, especially when upgrading weapons, so it's a worthwhile task.

However, to acquire all of these Bell Bearings you're going to need to pass through dangerous locales, delve deep into caverns and dungeons, and worse — kill NPCs. This will take a significant amount of time, and even make some sidequests unobtainable or unable to be completed. Either way, here's how to find them all, separated by area.

All Bell Bearings In Limgrave

Many of these Bell Bearings are available right from the start of your adventure. It's advisable to make sure you're levelled a little first, however, as there are some powerful foes in the way.

Where To Find Pidia's Bell Bearing

In order to obtain Pidia's Bell Bearing you'll have to complete Ranni's lengthy questline, as he cannot be killed. This requires you to have defeated Royal Knight Loretta in Caria Manor, and opened up the way to the Three Sisters area.



Once the questline is complete, head to the site of the Loretta battle and enter the Three Sisters through the exit. Keep left, hugging the wall of the Manor, until you see a location to drop down onto the ramparts. Drop to the right, very carefully, and then descend the ladder into the Manor. You'll find Pidia's corpse here, surrounded by his puppets, and the Bell Bearing.

All Bell Bearings In Altus Plateau And Leyndell, Royal Capital

In order to access Altus Plateau you're going to need to find both halves of the Dectus Medallion, and then ascend using the Grand Lift of Dectus. Leyndell in particular is a maze of streets, buildings and verticality, and the enemies here will be the most powerful you've faced so far.
