|A nefarious helm combining pheromones and Killer Honey to captivate Killer Bees into servitude.|
|On Equip||+6 DEF, +6 SPD|
|Effect(s)||On party: Inflicts Berserk within 4 tiles for 6 seconds
Summon 3 bees to aid the player in combat for 6 seconds
A unique helm that gives up its speedy ability and some of its defense to summon 3 bees to help you in battle. It also gives a heavy speed boost to compensate for the loss of Speedy.
The bees orbit you for 6 seconds and inflict 120 damage each every 0.6 seconds each to anything near them by firing short-ranged beams at them (the beams are not projectiles, and therefore will never miss) with a range of approximately 4.5 tiles relative to the user. Each bee will perform this damage separately, so at 0 defense this helm will give 600 dps. Note that the bees’ damage does not ignore defense. In addition, after being active for 1.6 seconds the red bee’s next attacks will apply the Curse effect. However, the Curse can only affect up to 3 targets at any given time.
Overall, this helm is incredibly useful when DPS is your main priority and speed/survivability is not, due to the bees being able to churn out immense damage per second (along with the curse effect), not to mention that the curse effect stacks with the bees’ damage output.
An example of this would be during tight boss fights (like the Killer Bee Queen or Marble Colossus) where the mobility from a tiered helm would be detrimental, or boss fights where the armor boost from the Helm of the Juggernaut would not serve as well (due to armor-piercing shots).
Before Exalt Version 188.8.131.52 (May 2021), this item had a cooldown of 7.5 seconds, the Red Bee only had a 50% chance of applying Curse, and the bees were not summons.
