The Necrotic Frame is an Item used in an Apiary, which drastically decreases a Queen's lifespan and productivity. It has a durability of 270.

The Necrotic Frame decreases a bee's lifespan to only 30% and its productivity to 75%. With each durability use/bee cycle, the Necrotic Frame will deplete the nearby Aura by one point. Additionally, a significant amount of "Mortuus" and "Venenum" Flux will be released into the aura.

In an Alveary structure, the Frame Housing can be added to make use of the Frame.


The Necrotic Frame requires prior research of Magic Bees, Stark Bees, Bees and Magic and Magic Frame before becoming craftable.

Thaumonomicon Entry[edit]

After being stung by a bee, you concocted an idea to make them pay. Surely placing a frame infused with death and envenomed intents in a hive will teach them a lesson!

Your vengeance-fuelled research has paid off, resulting in the knowledge of the Necrotic Frame. This frame, when placed in an Apiary, will cause the bees to become sluggish, reducing their work speed, and severely unhealthy, greatly diminishing the current generation's lifespan. However, it is prudent to ensure the enchantments in the frame only affect the current generation.

Like the Magic Frame, this frame consumes aura to maintain its enchantments. This is not your best work, however, and the frame's operation will produce significantly more flux in the surrounding area than your other frames.
