Esoteric Bees are the first species of bee in the Arcane Branch. This bee is mainly a stepping stone towards acquiring Arcane, and later, Stark Bees.

Production[edit]

Esoteric Bees produce Occult Combs as is the case with the other members of the Arcane Branch. These result in Magic Wax and Honey Drops when centrifuged.
