The Dream Bell in Final Fantasy XI.

Bells (ベル, Beru?), also called Handbells, are a recurring weapon type in the Final Fantasy series; they are often associated with Geomancers. For games with the classic row-based battle system, the power of bells remains unchanged when used from the back row.

The bell weapons are associated with the Geomancer class, known as "feng shui knight" in Japanese. Feng shui is the Chinese studying of the direction, geography and/or weather to calculate the individual's fortune who resides or works in that place. Bells are used in the craft as instruments to dispel negative energy and stimulate positive energy, and that's why they are wielded as weapons by Geomancers.
