Treants in Tiny Tina’s Assault[edit]

Another Bee dropping spot!

The Bee Shield seems to have a high drop rate in The Forest. I’ve done too many grinding runs to count, it’s usually 50/50 to get one . However, it can be higher. On one run I picked up three Bee’s by starting at the teleport station by the vending machines, all the way back to the Orc Lord (or Duke depending on what spawns), and back to the vending machines. If you’re looking for a bee, I recommend going after Treants (big tree’s) in The Forest - for some Ez Bee farming!

Extra info: if you have issues defeating the Orc Lord, just hang out in the lower part of the Orc village [by the hanging skeleton in the cage with the plate of crumpets] and kill off the 1-2 orcs at a time that agro to you. After about 3-5 minutes of killing off the random orc’s, a tree-Orc war starts and the orc’s are pissed off at the trees! Go around the back of the large tree (right below the red pool) and you will see the Orc Lord come out and start attacking trees. I keep a small distance from him (and any stray trees that come my way) and shoot him down. He will pretty much ignore you until all the trees are dead so TRY not to help him kill them off as once they are gone... you’re his next target. 8-|
