Apiarist Database Overview[edit]

Metallicis plumbeus

Discovered by MysteriousAge

A favorite of amateur alchemists, they believe they can transform these bees to gold. - Apinomicon

Production[edit]

Plumbum Bees produce Honey Combs as is the case with the other members of the Metallic Branch. These combs result in Beeswax and Honey Drops when centrifuged. Plumbum Bees also produce Lead Nuggets as a specialty. If nine Lead Nuggets are acquired, a Lead Ingot can be made.
