The Metabolic Frame is an Item used in an Apiary, which drastically increases a bee's mutation rate as well as slightly its production at the cost of high aura consumption. It has a durability of 120.
The Metabolic Frame increases the mutation rate by 80% and its production by 20%. With each durability use/bee cycle, the Metabolic Frame will deplete the nearby Aura by 5 points. Out of all frames, the Metabolic Frame has the highest aura consumption. Additionally, "Permutatio" and "Motus" Flux will be released into the Aura.
Additional bee research has yielded insight into their body structure, metabolism, and life cycle. It is possible that you could create a frame to enhance their body processes. The Metabolic Frame enhances the rate at which bees metabolize food, resulting in a higher work speed. However, this makes their genetic structure somewhat unstable and prone to mutations. While this can be frustrating for some apiarists, other, more prepared beekeepers have been known to use the Metabolic Frames in their apiaries to encourage mutations in bee species.
Like the Magic Frame, this frame consumes aura to maintain its enchantments, and has the negative side-effect of producing some flux in the surrounding aura now and again as the enchanted bees go about their work. The Metabolic Frame consumes significantly more aura, as its enchantments are much more complex, and is not quite as durable as the Magic Frame is known to be.
