Bell Choir Ensemble
Bell Choir is a non-combat, music-based activity introduced in the Wintersday: The Wondrous Workshop of Toymaker Tixx update as part of Wintersday 2012.

Play the correct notes at the right time to score points and earn presents. There are four stages, each with a lower, middle, and upper sections. Players must talk to the Snowman and pick which section they wish to play.

- While on stage, play notes by using skills assigned to 1 – 4 and 6 – 9 on your skill bar.
- During each song, colored spheres travel across the stage toward you. When the notes enter the inner circle and stop moving, it’s time to play!
- Each skill is color-coded to match the sphere and section of the stage it travels down.
- Miss a note, or play a note at the incorrect time, and you’ll take damage.
- Play a note at the correct time and your health is restored.
- Hit every note in a song to gain 100 points at the end. Every note you miss will subtract points based on how many total notes are in the song.
- If you lose all your health, you miss out on points for that song and must wait until the next song to play again.
- There are a total of six songs, ranging from easy to hard as the playlist progresses.
- Presents are awarded based on the songs completed while remaining on stage. Survive all six songs and get the highest score you can!
- Stick around after the sixth song for one minute of Free Play. Play whatever you want, collaborate with people on your stage, and get creative!
Tips and Tricks
- It helps to position your camera so that it faces directly down onto the stage, zoomed as far out as possible. This makes it easier to see the notes before you play them.
- If you’re having a hard time with the difficult songs, stick around until the playlist repeats. You’ll still be rewarded for completing the easier songs.
- Try playing the number keys like a real keyboard, with one finger on each key. This helps with large leaps between notes.
- If no one else is playing on stage with you, the other parts will play automatically.
