Easier than Tiny Mandragoras
# Feb 06 2008 at 2:55 AM Rating: Good
Bumblebees are easier than Tiny Mandragoras, and as such are the favored prey when levelling from level 1 in East or West Sarutabaruta. Most jobs should be able to reach level 3 without ever resting, by killing Bumblebees. Bumblebees also have much better drops than Tiny Mandragoras, so to players operating on a budget, this is the more economical choice.

Bumblebees are classified as Vermin.

Bumblebees are located in East and West Sarutabaruta, surrounding the gates to Windurst.

I've gotten plenty of beehive chips and honeys off of these guys...

Haha, doubt it. They don't drop Beehive chips. Or maybe ur right and they do, its just a 0% drop rate.
Too weak o_O

About the level of these things...
At level 1, these are Decent challenge, and give you 50 exp. That must mean they are 2 levels below you... so they'd be level -1, but that wouldn't make any sense....

Just so you're aware, I'm 99% sure that bumblebees don't drop beehive chips, giant stingers, or honey. They do drop the wind crystals, insect wings, and rarab tails however. I've killed countless bumblebees and have yet to see any items other than those 3

Why do Bumble bee's drop rarab tales?
that is not right ><
Rarab tails

Because a rarab tail is not the tail of a rarab. It's actually a pea plant that "looks like" the tail of a rarab. Check the description of a rarab tail in the game or here for more details. I had killed countless rarabs for the first Star Onion Brigade quest before stumbling on to this fact myself.

hmm... I don't know what you can steal though come to think of it. Maybe honey seeing as that's what the Giant Bee gives when you steal from it.
If that's correct then the only errors would lie within the beehive chip and giant stinger...
