Breeding
Players will be able to use their assets (Queen Bee + Bee + HONEY) to breed new Bees in Honeyland. When a player breeds their Bees, they will mint a new Bee NFT which can be used to play in Honeyland or can be sold on the Honeyland marketplace.
Players will select their Queen Bee and Bee to be used in the breeding process.

Offspring Bee Traits & Parts

Utility Traits

The Utility Traits of each Bee establish their utility in Honeyland. When breeding new Bees, these traits will be determined through 3 main factors:
  • Queen Bee Trait Stats - for each trait, exactly half of the Queen Bee's stats will be transferred to the offspring Bee. If the Queen Bee has 88 Agility, she will contribute 44 Agility to the offspring.
  • Rarity - for each trait, exactly half of the offspring Bee's stats will be determined by luck in the form of Rarity. Each utility trait will randomly be assigned a rarity that will correlate with a stat range for that trait. For instance:
    • Legendary (1%): 44-47 stat points
    • Epic (9%): 32-35 stat points
    • Super Rare (20%): 26-29 stat points
    • Rare (30%): 22-25 stat points
    • Common (40%): 18-21 stat points
  • Male Bee Generation Stat Multiplier - once the stats from the Queen Bee and the Rarity have been added together to create the base stats for each trait of the offspring Bee, a stat multiplier is applied. The stat multiplier is determined by the generation of the male Bee used in the breeding process. Each generation has a range of multipliers which will be applied during the breeding process to determine the final stats of the offspring Bee:
    • Genesis Bees = 1.3-1.9 multiplier
    • First Generation Bees = 1.2-1.9 multiplier
    • Second Generation Bees = 1.1-1.9 multiplier
    • Third Generation Bees = 1.1-1.8 multiplier
    • Starter Generation Bees = 1.0-1.7 multiplier
See Breeding Stats Multiplier for the full table of chances for each multiplier.

Other Traits

The Other Traits of each Bee will be mostly be determined randomly, but some will be known before breeding based on the Queen Bee and Bee used in the breeding process.
  • Randomly generated traits include:
    • Landform specialty
    • Like
    • Dislike
    • Mood
    • Attack profile
  • Assigned traits include:
    • Generation - see Determining a Bee's Generation​
    • Universe / Species - Offspring Bee has a 90% chance of being the same species as the Queen Bee and a 10% chance of being the same species as the male Bee

Parts

The Parts of each Bee determine their rarity and cosmetics. Some of these parts (body, antennae, wings, hands, and feet) will be determined by the Universe the Bee is from (i.e. its species), while other parts will be randomized through a generative process.

Breeding Limits

In order to control the population of Bees in Honeyland, most Bees have breeding limits as follows:
  • Queen Bees (all generations) - can breed unlimited times
  • Genesis Bees - can breed unlimited times
  • First Generation Bees - can breed a maximum of 9 times
  • Second Generation Bees - can breed a maximum of 6 times
  • Third Generation Bees - can breed a maximum of 3 times
  • Starter Generation Bees - can breed a maximum of 1 time

Breeding Costs

Breeding new Bees costs HONEY and the player must also have a minimum amount of HONEY staked. The cost of breeding and minimum amount of HONEY staked for breeding depends on the number of times the male Bee has previously bred.

Half of the HONEY spent in the breeding process is burned forever. The other half goes to the Honeyland treasury.
*The Breeding cost and Breeding limits are subject to change prior to the launch of the game.

Breeding a Queen Bee

During the breeding process, players can use the NFT Item Royal Jelly to designate the bee they are breeding to be a Queen Bee. This must be done when the breeding process begins.
