Arcane Bees are the highest tier of the Arcane Branch, one of the two branches (the other being Supernatural) that result in the eventual creation of Stark Bees.

Production[edit]

Arcane Bees produce Occult Combs faster than any other bee and also produce Enchanting Drops (for use in the creation of Aromatic Lumps) as a specialty product.
