Elden Ring Bolstering Bell Bearings Locations Guide

In Elden Ring you will spend a bunch of time gathering various upgrade materials to upgrade both your weapon and ashes. Many of the upgrade materials are available in the open-world, but having access to them through merchants makes life a lot easier. Thankfully players can unlock the ability to purchase upgrade materials through acquiring Bolstering Bell Bearings. To find all the Elden Ring Bolstering Bell Bearings locations see our guide below.



What to Do with Bolstering Bell Bearings

Before I dive into the locations of all of the Bolstering Bell Bearings in the game I just want to mention what exactly you do with them. When you acquire a Bolstering Bell Bearing you need to take them to the Rountable Hold. At this location speak to the Twin Maidens. There is an option to “Offer a bell bearing.” Select this option then select the bell bearing from the list. This adds the bell bearings inventory to the twin maiden’s inventory. You can then purchase them using Runes.



Note: NPCs with stores will drop bell bearings as well. These bell bearings work in the exact same manner as mentioned above. Delivering the bell bearings to the Twin Maidens will unlock that NPC’s inventory in their shop.
