"A mysterious looking platform with 6 idol shaped slots."

The Hivemother Shrine is part of a set of mysterious Hivemother objects that can be found scattered around the map. The Shrine allows the player to get the Sacred Bee by placing each of the Idols into the 6 slots.

General Info

The Shrine can be found in the Hivemother's Dream to the north, on the final island in front of the Hivemother Door. When opened the player will see 6 hexagonal slots, in a similar layout to that seen on Apiaries.

Putting one of each Idol into the 6 slots will trigger a Sacred Bee to appear in the central slot. Only one Sacred Bee is ever given, and the Shrine can't be used to get more (however once picked up and "discovered" Barnabee will start selling it in their shop pool)

  • All Hivemother "machines" are unique in the fact that they have small symbol text drawn onto the menu that gives a clue to its function.
  • The small symbol text on the Shrine menu reads: "FOR THOSE THAT HAVE PRAYED AT EACH OF THE ALTARS" on the left-hand side, and "CAN RECEIVE THE MOST SACRED OF ALL HER CHILDREN" on the right-hand side
  • This symbol text is a bit misleading, as one of the Idols can only be bought from the Merchant, and another is rewarded for completing the bee book.
  • The Shrine will only give a Sacred Bee if all 6 idols are different - i.e. you can't use 6 Merchant Idols to get it
