Savant Bees are the final species of bee in the Scholarly Branch. They produce Lore Fragments faster than Scholarly Bees by a factor of approximately three.


Savant Bees produce Papery Combs as is the case with the other members of the Scholarly Branch. These result in Beeswax, Magic Wax and Paper when centrifuged.
