Choir Bell is a Hunter Tool.
Choir Bell Description
"Special hunter tool of the Choir, high-ranking members of the church. Fashioned after a bell that projects an arcane sound across planes of existence
The sound of this smaller, silver version of the bell does not cross planes, but grants vigor and healing to all cooperators."
Choir Bell Usage
- Invigorates all cooperating parties, healing them.
- Heals self and others.
- Also cures ailments, ex: slow poison. Does not affect Frenzy buildup.
- Mergo's Loft. After defeating Micolash, Host of the Nightmare, use the Iron Door Key to gain access underneath the bridge connecting the two Cathedral Cradles. Cross the bridge and the bell is in a room with a chest, a few spiders and a Winter Lantern. Beware that this path puts you in danger of being frenzied to death by the Brain of Mensis.
- If you want to avoid the Brain of Mensis, you can ride the elevator that goes between the entrance and exit to Micolash's boss area. This elevator can be identified by its door, which is stuck open and doesn't close. There is an open window halfway up the elevator's path that you can jump into. This leads to a bridge with 3 Winter Lanterns. At the other end is a hole you can drop into to reach the room that contains the Choir Bell.

- This bell's fashionable design and silver colored appearance, as well as being crafted by the healing church, mimics the real life usage of silver by various religions, Christianity in particular. Silver was considered precious and used often as a symbol of reverence given to God. In this sense, the healing church, upon discovering a bell that could heal others as well as the user, decided to craft smaller variations out of precious metal and used intricate designs for its appearance.
- A theory about the original bell this item was based on was that it may have been used to contact a Great One by the Choir. If this is the case, it would make sense why the smaller variations were designed with beauty in mind since one would want to show reverence to such a great and powerful being.
- Using the bell onto the injured Eileen outside Cathedral Ward kills her instead of healing her. It is speculated that this is to help keep the game's story intact (in other words, you cannot help Eileen out other than killing her mark for her). However, another theory holds that the bell's inability to heal Eileen might be the will of the bell itself, rejecting Eileen for possible moral grounds such as being a hunter of people or having committed countless assassinations. Why this does not apply to players who have committed similar deeds is uncertain, but the theory holds that being a hunter chosen by the dream could be a reason why.
