Queen Bees anyone?

Has anyone gotten Queen Bees lately? If so, where’d you find them? I just went on a farming spree of Aloe plants, and some other misc plants, filled up my 200 slot inventory and only got regular bees, no queens. Where are you finding your queens?


I got two today by looting a corpse. I wonder how to get them by farming too, I haven’t got any in Chapter3 other than these two. Maybe your golem can farm them along with the plants?

Have picked up some on Siptah lately official pve-c honestly don’t know if it was going after fiber or bodies and chests was chasing after Sorcerer’s and Golum pieces. Put 3 and some worker bee’s in a hive today. Could have been from grabbing fiber by hand trying to find a bodies.

I usually get them when using a sickle on aloe. From what I gather, they are a rare material drop, so you won’t get a ton.


So weird. I did aloe plants, black blood sickle, advanced improvement, and have careful harvest expertise, and got 0. Welp, looks like it was just bad luck then I guess.


I want to say they come from Lotus and many of the Dye material plants. But I haven’t farmed much of these in the last month or so.

I didn’t think to try the lotus - that actually makes sense for a rare resource. I’ll give that a shot, thanks! …after I recover from the last farming session XD

Use a different sickle without improvement . I remember farming aloes and gaining “only” aloes with oiled blood sickle not advanced. Then again, now it’s your harvesting perk too, not only your tools :man_shrugging:.
Queen bees are rare drop, so you need the particular perk for it.

Haven’t really noticed lately, since they don’t serve much purpose when honey replenishes on its own, but I would always find them when farming aloe and yellow lotus.


I snagged a bunch of queens from crimson lotus, might want to try that out.


sounds good. tons of it at mounds, i’ll give it a try.

Lotus with sickle it is! :wink:


Get the “Careful Harvest” perk from the Expertise tree, it should up your gain of rare resources tremendously.

Just farmed 700 aloe 2000 fiber 152 purple lotus 300 yellow lotus not a bee among them used steel sickle… must gotten from body or chest.

This is what I’m afraid of… I’ll try myself again when I’m able to get on later tonight.

Check the brown bushes in the noob river. If not those, check the two smaller rivers for rare brown bushes. You just want the ones with seeds, literally.

I haven’t tested if the terrain affects the bush type. I mean, it looks like it.

I have to apologize, I was absolutely sure. But wiki says:
Queen Bee is a byproduct of Aloe.
Queen Bee
So I testet (on PC) handpicked, Black Ice Sickle and Black Blood Pick (with a pick, you only get Insects from bushes).
NOTHING at all. Not a single Queen…
Maybe we have a problem (bug) here?

I suppose I should’ve stated in my OP that I had already looked at the wiki as a starting point. But ya, nothing. I’m starting to wonder if we have a bug with the recent hotfix, or even with the Season 3 update.

I restocked on aloe a day or two ago and received a number of queens, playing on an official (PC PvE) Siptah server at the moment.

Some accidental hand-picking aside, I used the Acheronian sickle.

I can also confirm that it is almost impossible to find them.

it is very important for catch big fish.

so is i hope funcom increase the chances of getting them…
