Bond is a mechanic that was added in the 7/11 update. Bond is nearly identical to the "EXP" system found in many other games. When bees have a high enough bond with the player, they will level up, gaining boosts to their stats.
Methods of Obtaining
- A bee will automatically gain bond when collecting pollen in a field it likes. When collecting pollen, if a bee has a sad emoticon over its head, it means that the bee does not like that field and will not gain any bond from collecting pollen in that said field. If it has a happy emoticon instead, it likes the field, and will gain bond.
- Bees can be fed treats to increase their bond manually. If you feed a bee its favorite treat, it will gain double the bond it would otherwise (50 bond each instead of 25). You can visit the treats page to view which treats bees favor.
- Bees can gain bond by defeating mobs. Tougher mobs tend to yield more bond.
Bees are not the only ones who have levels. All monsters in the game also have levels, except the Cave Monster.
Bees have a chance of missing if their level is lower than the monster's level. To put this in perspective, a bee will always miss if it is 2 levels or more below the monster's level. If it is 1 level below, it has a chance of hitting but also a chance of missing. If it is equal to or greater than the monster's level, it will always hit. If a bee has more levels than the mentioned mob, the bee hits more.
- A bee's bond does not reset after a level up. For example, a level 2 bee that levels up to level 3 with exactly 50 bond will have 50/250 Bond when it is level 3.
- A bee's rarity does not affect how much bond it needs to level up. Both a Common and Legendary bee at level 1 would require 10 bond to level up.
- Bond can be checked at any time by clicking on the bee's slot.
- The maximum level a bee can achieve is 15. Despite being at the maximum level, it will continue to gain bond, so if the max level was raised, the bee could already be at the said level.
- Bond does not diminish when using Royal Jelly, however using an Eviction will completely reset bond.
