You’re having problems with the Queen Bee, huh? For real? I always thought she was one of the easier monsters to beat. But, then again, I do operate on a higher plane of existence than the rest of you mere mortals. So, I guess I can see how you might have difficulties with this big bad honey mama.
Want to squish that Queen Bee once and for all, get your hands on some awesome loot, and be more attractive, popular, and cool, like me? Well, I can’t help you with that last bit, but I’ll give you some great pointers and lineups to defeat Queen Bee. Let’s get started!
How to Attack Queen Bee?
Like other monsters in Lords Mobile, Queen Bee will spawn for 2 hours and 55 minutes at a time. That’s how long you’ve got to kill her and claim the loot hiding inside that big golden stinger of hers. And if you want to get the job done quickly, there are a few things you need to know.
First things first, let’s talk about weaknesses. Queen Bee has exceptionally high resistance to magic attacks but is not so strong against physical damage. So, if you want to be a buzzkill for the Queen Bee, stack your lineup with agility heroes.
In terms of her offensive capabilities, this monster has a couple of tricks up her sleeve. She can summon other bees to do her dirty work. Those little suckers can overwhelm you if you take too long. So, end the fight as soon as possible and maximize your damage output, or get swarmed to death. Your call.
Queen Bee F2P Lineup
Do you want to hunt monsters without spending cash? Read on for the best F2P lineups you can use to utterly destroy this overgrown insect in no time at all, courtesy of my brilliance and expertise. But, before we get to that, I’ve got to remind you of a couple of things (I know how forgetful you folks can be).
First up, use only high-level heroes against monsters. Don’t rush into battle with a bunch of under-leveled weaklings because it just won’t work. Use your strongest heroes, as they’ll have the best chance of dealing damage and, more importantly, staying alive.
Second, even though the lineups I give you are the best, it doesn’t mean that they’re the only option you’ve got. You can swap out one or two heroes for similar heroes and get more or less the same result. So don’t worry if you don’t have every single one of them maxed out.
Okay, I won’t be repeating all of that, so I hope you took notes. Now, let’s get to the lineups.
Level 1-3 Queen Bee F2P Hero Lineup: Demon Slayer, Black Crow, Trickster, Tracker, Scarlet Bolt
I told you earlier on that AGI heroes are the best choice for beating Queen Bee, so you shouldn’t be too surprised to see several strong archers in this lineup. The likes of Black Crow and Scarlet Bolt can do serious damage over time, dealing the most damage before the Bee gets too many buzzing buddies.
Level 4-5 Queen Bee F2P Hero Lineup: Demon Slayer, Black Crow, Trickster, Death Archer, Scarlet Bolt
At the higher levels, I’m recommending that you give Tracker a seat on the bench and bring in Death Archer. For whatever reason, she just works well against the stronger versions of this monster.
Queen Bee P2P Lineup
We all know the rules in games like Lords: if you want to have an easier time, you need to fork over some cash. P2P players get a wider pool of heroes to choose from to squash the Queen Bee beneath their feet. Here’s my favorite lineup:
Level 1-5 Queen Bee P2P Hero Lineup: Demon Slayer, Black Crow, Boommeister, Death Archer, Grove Guardian
No matter which level this monster you want to beat, I recommend selecting the five heroes listed above. They can combine for some incredible damage potential, which should help you finish the fight ASAP and get on with your life (if you even have a life outside of this game).
Queen Bee Rewards
Once the Queen Bee is down, you can get your grubby little hands on whatever loot she leaves behind, including some materials to make your own Queen Bee weapons and armor. Let’s take a look at the stuff she drops.
- Chest (Common to Legendary, depending on the level)
- Speed Up (Between 1h and 24h)
- Shield (8h to 3d)
- Gems (200 to 1,000)
- Gold (15k to 600k)
- Bee Chrysalis
- Buzzing Husk
- Royal Stinger
- Queen Venom
Those four items at the bottom of the list – from Bee Chrysalis to Queen Venom – are what you’ll want the most. They’re used to craft the Queen Bee Set, which I’ll cover next.
We all know the drill: you beat monsters like the Queen Bee over and over and over again in the hopes of getting rare materials to make your army stronger. And if you like the idea of boosting your ranged and cavalry ATK values, I can tell you that you’re going to love the Queen Bee Set:
- Hardened Carapace – First up, I love the look of this thing. I know it’s only a bunch of pixels on a screen, but it’s classy as hell. Stats-wise, it’s pretty impressive, offering a 35% (at Mythic) boost to cavalry and ranged ATK, plus a 14% increase in army DEF.
- Bumblehelm – Okay, I thought the Hardened Carapace was cool, but the Bumblehelm takes the cake. It looks amazing, it has a killer name, and it’s got great stats boosts too. With this bad boy, you can enjoy a massive 42% increase to both cavalry and ranged ATK, along with 28% higher HP for your army. Of the entire Queen Bee Set, the Bumblehelm is the one shiny prize you’ll want the most, but it also requires a ton of materials to make.
- Honeycomb Chaps – The chaps have a dumb name and look ridiculous, so I’m not wasting my time here. They give you 16.8% more ATK for cavalry and ranged, plus 7% ranged defense. Worthless.
- Nectar Orb – Finally, we’ve got the main hand weapon. This thing isn’t too shabby, with 35% boosts for ranged and cavalry ATK, 14% more HP, and 14% more cavalry DEF. Again, it costs quite a lot of materials to make, so you’ll need to beat a whole bunch of Queen Bees, but it’s a pretty solid item to have in your inventory.
Queen Bee Packs
Hey, you, yeah you, want to know a secret? Come over here. Woah, not that close. Back off a little, buddy. Okay, here’s the scoop: if you don’t want to spend hours of your life-fighting Queen Bee to hopefully get the specific materials you need, you can also just buy some chests.
Queen Bee Chests will give you a mixture of the usual items that a Queen Bee would drop, without any of the effort, perfect for lazy gamers like you.
Listen, in real life, I’ve got no problem with bees. I’m a honey guy! But in Lords Mobile, This monster needs to be crushed, and I know exactly how to do it. And as long as you’ve been following along closely, you shouldn’t have any issues with her. If you also have problems with mosquitoes, Here’s my cheatsheet for that.
Just remember to pack your lineup with strong archers, and always use high-level heroes who can take a hit. Once you find a lineup that works (like the ones I provided), you’ll be able to smash Queen Bees to your delight and get all the loot you need.
Item-wise, the Queen Bee set is OK. The cheaper items are decent for a F2P player (but so is pretty much any other), and the more expensive ones are worth it if you get lucky.
