Starting a Bee HiveEdit
A bee hive is currently without any connection to Climate of the zone it is in and thus can be run in any area. It is crafted through the proficiency of handicraft (contraption, acorn bee hive) from lumber, acorns, Aspen hardwood and Light Dawn Essence.
It is then placed into the house area and production started by adding a queen bee through the use of a Queen Bee Taming Net (where to find the queens is described at the Queen Bee page). The queen bee must be first brought down to 15% health or lower to attempt capturing her. Trying to capture her when the health is higher can cause her to break free and destroy the taming net.
After placing the queen into the hive she starts producing bees and over the course of 4 days will yield honey and as rare product jelly.
Running a Bee HiveEdit
There are four stages to a bee hive over the course of 4 days. Each stage provides more resources upon harvest but consumes more Labor Points as well.
Before you attempt to harvest a bee hive you should have a supply of Smoke Beads as the bees might become aggressive during the process and then can be calmed down with the beads. These will also be needed if your hive becomes infested.
Bee stings currently have minimal effect so wearing a Beekeepers Veil is not necessary.
