1.1.1 KPL 5

Giant bee worker is a type of monster in ADOM. They are spawned from beehives, and cannot be generated naturally in the game. Like bees in real life, bees inject venom when they attack, but subsequently die. Like other bees they have low KPLs due to the fact they can only be generated by a special event, meaning that PCs that stumble upon multiple bee hives are likely to quickly find very high levelled bees. As of 1.2.0, this effect has been toned down considerably.

Note that bees generated from kicked hives are considered to be summoned and cannot be sacrificed and do not generate loot (1.2.0), whereas bees that exit the hive normally are not.

Monster memory[]

A huge insect with yellow and black markings, these normally secure pollen for the hive, fighting only when the hive is threatened. Normally involved in food gathering, they will aggressively attack any who have been aggressive toward the hive, or who infringe upon the hive’s territory. Like all bees, they die if their stinger is removed.
