Getting Started

APPROVED AND USED BY 20+ ALL-TIME PLAYERS

After the Retro Meta Changes Blue Hive meta changed slightly.

This meta change has caused the bombs to no longer be the main source of pollen for blue. Bubbles are now the main source that fills up balloons. The ratio of Honey-made/Balloon-size has increased significantly, if you think your balloons are not as large as usual, don’t worry as the honey at hive multipliers have increased and the amount in field / rate of pop star has increased

Keep in mind that this is a BASE HIVE, everyone can change to their liking and game progression.

IF YOU HAVE FOCUS ABILITY ON YOUR PINK SHADES YOU CAN RUN 3 MUSIC BEES INSTEAD

IF YOU HAVE NO DIGITAL DRIVES YOU SHOULD NOT RUN DIGITAL BEE

THIS IS AN ENDGAME HIVE THAT YOU OPTIMIZE FOR YOURSELF

Do this slowly while testing what works best for you.

Buoyant:Tad Ratio

Begin with 16:11, if you are lvl 20/21 you will see that you will fill way too easily you could drop a tad for a buoyant.

If you macro with alts you can always drop a few tads for buoyants however dont drop too many as you still need them to initiate pop star

BAR on Tadpoles

Critical Chance>=BAR>Convert>Rest on Buoyants

BAR on Bear/Windy

X mutation for X beequip

Beequips

Be sure to check out our guide on Waxing the Beequips.

The best way to use Waxes to enhance your Beequips

Beequips are extremely powerful with their great hive bonuses and bee buffs. Blue hives could run many different beequip mixes , these are some example good blue beequips:

SWARM UPDATE BEEQUIPS GUIDE COMING SOON

  • Camphot lip balm OPPPPPPP
  • Snow Tiara
  • Paper Angel
  • Beesmas Tree Hats
  • Pinecones
  • Beesmas Tops
  • Elf Caps
  • Icicles
  • Charm Bracelet
  • Kazoo
  • Sweatband
  • Beret
  • Peppermint Antennas ON BEAR BEE
  • Toy Horn
  • Paperclips

Some people run Coal but it’s quite hard to find a good one and not many have it. Running a Sweatband depends on how good the stats are and how developed your digital bee is. Peppermint Antennas can be run depending on how good the stats are. The Toy Horn is to be run if constant Melody isn’t achieved.

BAR Buoyant Bees

Frosty/Ninja Bees

Supreme Cog Amulet very important

  • +25% to +30% Blue Pollen
  • +15% to +20% Bubble Pollen
  • +5% to +10% Ability Token Lifespan

Supreme Star Amulet should be Pop Shower,Pop Guiding,or a good Solo Pop

Pop Shower > Pop Guiding > Solo Pop ; Assuming all are 5/5 and similar stat ranges

Pop Shower

Blue relies on Pop Star to fill balloons and the capacity buff from Star Shower will be needed if you are over-filling with your current solo Pop Star. Also, the chance to catch a star from Star Shower makes it easy to get inspire stacks which are overpowered

Pop Guiding

Guiding Star also grants a permanent 1.25x capacity multiplier as well as a 2.5x pollen and capacity bonus for summoning a star

Solo Pop

You can settle with a 5/5 solo pop and be fine. You don’t need a 5/5 double passive for blue unless you overfill.

Nectar

Nectar Priority

  1. Motivating (BP, CR, BAR)
  2. Comforting (BP, CRH, CCR)
  3. Satisfying (HH, RCR, WP)
  4. Refreshing (BCR, RP, BAR)
  5. Invigorating (RP, CR, BA)

Depending on how good your planters are, you can set priority to 70%-80%.

Boosting

RBC BOOST GUIDE COMING SOON

Most people will do RBC boosts over actual boosts for balloon blessing then macro honey
