How to get the bee mount Guide

To unlock this faction you will need a bumblebee battle pet: Seabreeze Bumblebee or Bumbles. Bumbles can be earned from achieving “Let’s Bee Friends”, which has a 7 day time gate! We don’t want to waste your time so we suggest you simply buy a Seabreeze Bumblebee from the Auction House. If you don’t want to buy it from the auction house you can head on over to BFA (Storm’s Wake) and buy a Seabreeze Bumblebee costing 250 Polished Pet Charms (You will need Revered with Storm’s Wake). 

Once you have your bee pet, go to the Mildenhall Meadery, next the flightpath you will find Barry. You need to find Barry, he’s covered in bees.

Barry the Bee Keeper

Summon your battle pet Bumblebee. Once your pet bee is summoned, Barry explains that there’s a new hive nearby! He suggests the Bees may lead us to their nest.

From Barry, now follow the green clouds which will eventually lead you to the Honeyback Hive. If you would like to skip this part you can also just skip straight to the hive. Fly to the Honeyback hive at the location below.

Honeyback Hive Location

Once you’ve reached the hive, there is a little bit of  dialogue between Barry and the Hivemother, who comes out to defend her nest. Don’t try to enter the hive, you’ll get teleported away and get a debuff “Many Painful Stings” which is nasty! Barry suggests we can find something to appease the Hivemother. Locate one Thin Jelly. One will be located nearby the Hive just search around and you will find one.

First Thin Jelly – Honeyback Hive

When you have found the Thin Jelly give it to the Honeyback Hivemother. She’s unfortunately is not easy to please and is still not happy. Speak to Barry again, he will then valiantly attempt to communicate with the bee through dance and simple words. Unexpectedly he does get through. Now, you can follow him inside the Honeyback Hive.

Go through Barry’s dialogue choices, then feed your first Jelly to the Nascent Harvester (Baby bumble bee to the left of the hive inside the honey comb.
