‘The Bell Chimes for Gold’ (Otome) Guide

‘The Bell Chimes for Gold’ is a new translated project by the Sekai Project. In the game you play as Maria, a herbalist, whose life savings have been stolen by her love to marry another woman. The man runs off while saying with her skills she can surely buy another man – so that’s what she decides to do! As you play through the game you create potions to sell and eventually use the money to payoff your babe’s debt! The game is pretty straight forward but I thought I’d write a quick guide on little bits that I think people might need help on.

Make sure to check out my review of the game over here!

Items for Alley

Physical health – Cerbird’s Wing

Physical energy – Darksteel honey

Something else (extra steps) – lament of the dead

  1. Thank you for the guide. Question though – if you want to romance one bachelor, do you have to stick with that character for all dungeon types? Or can you switch bodyguards between dungeons and still focus on the one bachelor? Thanks!

    1. No worries! You can switch bodyguards between dungeons, your progression with a bachelor is only influenced on whether you pay their debt or not 🙂


  2. While out on an adventure if you see a little bomb/ghost guy, hover over him to disarm him and save yourself 5 hp. See a set of white wings, hover them to spend 10 stamina and move 10 steps. See a blue mermaid, hover over her to get 5 extra steps at no cost to you. These last two are really helpful when trying to get to the big boss and unlock that special dungeon.
