Elden Ring Bell Bearing Hunter Locations: Where to Find Expanding Invasions


bell hunters are one of many types of patterns repeated in Ring of Eldenalthough of all the bosses that reappear multiple times in the game, these are some of the most useful to fight – partly because they give in Bell bearing items which can then be used to expand the items available for sale in Roundtable Hold.

Every Bell Bearing Hunter fight takes the form of an NPC invasion, but they only occur in certain places and under certain conditions. On this page we explain how to trigger each of the Bell Bearing Hunter fights and what items they will unlock for you in Roundtable Hold’s Twin Maiden Husks store.

Bell Hunter Locations and Invasion Spawn Conditions in Elden Ring

There are several Bell Bearing Hunter enemies in the vast world of Elden Ring, each found in a different location, and each with their own drops and power level. You can relate the power level to the area you’re in, basically – i.e. that enemy gets stronger in some of the locations you visit later in the game.

Hunters are a large, imposing figure wielding a large sword and shield. They’re pretty standard humanoid enemies in terms of moveset, but they also have sheer size and strength on their side.

This combines with the fact that Spirit Summoning isn’t available in any of the places they spawn, which means it can be an uphill battle in some cases – you’re on your own. Certain character classes, like those that specified attributes and stats in a more range-friendly build, might have a better chance of keeping these hunters at a safe distance.

As mentioned in the opening, the reason you’ll want to beat every Bell Bearing Hunter is because of their drops; each drops a different Bell Bearing item that allows you to purchase key crafting items from the Bell Bearing store from Twin Maiden Husks in Roundtable Hold.

Specifically, each item allows you to purchase certain key crafting ingredients, meaning there’s no longer a need to search for them in the wild. After getting every bell roll, turn it in with the Twin Maiden Husks to expand their store repertoire..

So far we believe there are four Bell Bearing Hunter battles in Elden Ring. Here’s where they are, what they drop, and how to spawn them:

Limgrave Bell Hunter

The location of the first Bell Bearing Hunter in Elden Ring, found in Limgrave.
  • Found at Warmaster’s Shack in the Stormhill area. During the day and at first it is occupied by a friendly NPC, but he eventually disappears. You might see it again later.
  • Breeds only at night; so approach the hut from another grace site at night, or advance through the night and then rest at the warmaster’s hut grace site. Your first sign that the invasion is happening will likely be a change in the music.
  • Drops the Bone Peddler’s Bell Bearing, which adds Fine Animal Bones and Heavy Beast Bones to the store.

Liurnia Bell Bearing Hunter

Liurnia is home to the second of Elden Ring's Bell Bearing Hunter fights.
  • Appears at the Church of Vows in the plains of the eastern wing of Liurnia.
  • Again, only breeds in the morning. To force it to appear, teleport to the Grace Site of the Church of Vows, then advance the time until nightfall. Come out of grace, then rest again right away and move on until morning. Once you are within a few steps of Grace a New Morning, the Bell Bearing Hunter will spawn.
  • Drops the Meat Peddler’s Bell Bearing, which adds Meat Chunks, Meat Silvers, and Turtle Neck Meat to the store.

Altus Tray Bell Bearing Hunter

Just outside of Leyndell on the Altus Plateau, you'll find the next Bell Bearing Hunter.
  • Appears in the shadow of Leyndell, Royal Capital, at the Hermit Merchant’s Hut location, just past a cemetery. It’s inside the first great wall, in the ‘Outer Moat’ area, but not inside Leyndell proper, and isn’t impacted by ‘ash’ developments later in the game.
  • This one is like Limgrave’s hunter and invades only at night. Follow the same instructions; rest at the site of grace to advance towards the night, go out, rest again, then the hunter will spawn.
  • Drops the Medicine Peddler’s Bell Bearing, which adds the various “Bolus” (Neutralizing, Supporting, Unfreezing, Stimulating) items to the store, great for crafting.

Caelid Bell Bearing Hunter

The location of the Caelid Bell Bearing Hunter - the hardest to defeat.
  • Although you can reach Caelid early in the game, this is by far the most difficult of these battles and best saved for last. This is found in the Dragonbarrow region north of Caelid, at the location of a lone trader.
  • It also only spawns at night. Now you know the drill – rest at the site of grace, walk towards night, rest once more and go out. The invasion is about to begin.
  • Drops the Gravity Stone Peddler’s Bell Bearing, which adds two rare items to the store – the Gravity Stone Fan and the Gravity Stone Chunk

If you want access to more Bell Bearings, you’ll find them all over The Lands Between – but you might not like what Elden Ring has you do to get them.

While these bell bearings dropped by hunters exist to give you easier access to certain crafting materials, other bell bearings are usually dropped by NPCs with stores when they die, allowing you to keep access to their wares even after they die, or after you kill them. Some other bell bearings, which unlock weapon upgrade and spirit summoning materials, can be found deep within some of Elden Ring’s optional dungeons, catacombs, and mines.
