Old Hunters are friendly NPCs that may be summoned for co-operation using the Old Hunter Bell. This page lists all available hunters and their summon locations. You will not obtain Vermin for co-op with NPCs, so if you are after ranks for The League you should instead be summoned as a helper into another player's world.

These summon signs glow in an indigo or red hue like these:
