  • I hate the hive. Not because it dosent look cool or dosent have a cool item, its just literal hell. Walking around the hive is hell, and i hate it. Plz send therapy from reprecusions of bee torture

  • I like how the hive knight is optional, because then I can decide I don't want to fight them. Seriously all the bees in the hive are adorable in their passive state.

  • Am i the only one who kinda struggled with this fight? A lot of people say this one is easy. Then again, I beat watcher knights my second try so I think different people struggle with different types of bosses.

  • I love how much personality that Team Cherry puts into most of their bosses, especially the Hive Knight and Dung and White Defender. I just wish Hive Knight was harder. Unfortunately, all it takes is a strength charm and the Shade Cloak to take him down within 30 seconds.

  • I think I would've struggled more with Hive Knight if I hadn't beaten 3 iterations of Grey Prince Zote and also gotten the Pure Nail. Grey Prince does NOT MESS. I felt kinda bad for hitting something so adorable too.

  • Dream Hive Knight fight idea First of all, bees would rain down EVERY time he knocked down, this would last for around 10 seconds Second of all, his attacks would have less telegraph time and be faster, while his orbs would be more numerous, and explode faster after spawning, and having more needles coming out than normal. Third of all, double damage, I decided this would be ok because this fight doesn't have so many things going on at the same time. Hive knight would also have 1/3 more health than he had in the first fight. Also, after the infinite need attack, he would NOT have a set pattern, but not being able to do that attack until it ends. If you dash through/over hive knight while he is doing a lunge attack, he will turn around almost instantly and do the same attack (like NKG.) This can only happen once per lunge. Well, that's all the ideas I have so far Edit : infinite bees, not needs, I mean, hive knight needs a better fight, but not an attack

    Jim- bobJim- bob7 maanden geleden
    • Only hive knight himself and the start of his bee attack (while going up.)

      Jim- bobJim- bob7 maanden geleden
    • I like a lot of this idea. That would be an intense fight. 🙂 Quick question: would everything do double damage or just Hive Knight? I think with all of the extra bees and spikes, it'd be a bit more balanced if only Hive Knight did double damage but everything else was still at 1. And I'm only making that suggestion because there may be a modder looking at this and mulling the idea over. 😆

    Aidan DillmanAidan Dillman9 maanden geleden
    • I get it. The Hive for me is one of those areas that I have to change my pace. I either go through it meticulously, slowly taking down every enemy I encounter. Or I do my best to race through it as fast as possible, dodging everything so I can beat Hive Knight, get Hiveblood, and Save and Quit out. It's a very unique area.

  • I'm pretty sure that the bees *are* infected, since I do think I remember something talking about how the Radiance's hivemind was so close to theirs that they adapted to the change easily. What I think happened tho is that because they accepted her rule so easily, they essentially still function like bees and thus are not harmed by the infection or majorly influenced by it. We don't know how well Radiance sees us through the eyes of the bugs she controls, or how much instinct or will wins out over her control (well enough apparently, if you're desperate; looking at you Hollow), so it's possible that the bees 'see' you by scent and you putting on the hiveblood charm makes them 'see' you as a bee, thus tricking the Radiance into not being hostile as she can only sense what they sense. Also, for the Hive Knight? He makes those sounds with his mouth. It's adorable

    Nelson ShamNelson ShamJaar geleden
  • I affraid more about the huge ass Berserker bee than the Hive Knight, cuz that one deal 2 damage everything it ram you, also the previous room has 2 of them(maybe 3), then I really suffer serious panic about that, I lose to Hive knight the first time to learn his move set, but looks easy tought, mostly tank him and heal, not a clever tactics, but I suck dodging, is not their move speed issue, I can dodge fast attacks but dodging then attack is a headache for me and I do need more times to learn about it, so I focus on attack only, but seriously, those floating honey orbs didn't hit me once in my secong try, and beat him wasn't that hard... I think I really suck facing a berserk type of boss

    Nelson ShamNelson ShamJaar geleden
    • Understandable: those large bees are really tough and the walk back to Hive Knight can be so frustrating.

    • @Perpetual Noob I ectually got the hang of his attack patterns and beat him with quick slash, mark of pride. I may have used glowing womb with defenders chrest too for extra dps and ditched the weaver song strategy all together.

    • Yeah. That's not the most efficient way to fight Hive Knight but it is a perfectly valid strategy.

  • Seriously, when I watch these discussion videos and see what charms, abilities and so are recommendable, I can't help but laughing (not in a mocking way), because I only had one or two nail uploads and just a few charm notches. Of course, it took lots of tries. By the way, it's not absolutely necesary the monarch wings, when I defeated the Hive Knight I hadn't even discovered you could upload your abilities and didn't even have the Crystal heart. To enter the Hive, you can use the bees coming out of the husk (or the husk itself) to get a boost by hitting them from above (I don't know if I'm explaining myself correctly).
