Misty Bee

From APICO Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

"In most land-based bees rain, and even mist, can impede their ability to fly. Not so the 'Misty' bee, which has developed water-repellent bristles, allowing them to fly unimpeded by moisture."

The Misty Bee is a Tier 2 species found by cross-breeding.

It is the first species found from cross-breeding that requires a specific weather to be active when the parent queen dies.

Book2 Item.pngHints

The Apiarist's Almanac gives the following hint:
This species can only be found when it's raining, a quirk of nature likely due to its Paene and Silva ancestry.

When asking Dr Beenjamin BhD for a hint he says the following:
Verge and Forest bees can be cross-bred into a new species, but only if it's raining. Anyone knows that!

Hive1 Item.pngCross-breeding

When Cross-Breeding the Misty Bee with the following other species there is a chance for the offspring to mutate into a new species!

As with all mutations, the offspring of the hybrid queen needs to also be a hybrid, so this can effect the chances listed below.

Sign Item.pngTrivia

  • A common "gotcha" with this bee for new players is not understanding that all traits of hybrid queens are inherited based on a mix of both input bees. This means if you crossed a natural Verge and natural Forest, there's only a 50% chance the resulting hybrid queen will be "rain-loving".
