Riley Bee's Honeyday Candles This is the worst Beesmas ever! It's so cold the Fire Bees can't even ignite the flowers. Demon Bee is threatening to return to the underworld. And Spicy Bee's engine is freezing up! The Blue Bees are trying to make it even WORSE with their Snow Machine! But there's still hope... if we can ignite the Honeyday Candles. They'll provide enough heat to get Red HQ operational again. But we'll need your help! Hurry up, before we all freeze to death: Collect 150,000,000 Red Pollen... Collect 50,000,000 Pollen from the Mushroom Field... Collect 50,000,000 Pollen from the Pineapple Patch... Spawn 500 Flames... Defeat 50 Scorpions [sic, collect 500 red bomb tokens] ...

Hurry hurry hurry, light them up! Yaaaaaaaaaaay! We're saved! With the Honeyday Candles lit, the Red Bees are back in action! Now every 4 hours, you can use it to recruit 3 temporary Red Bees for 30 minutes... And it'll also give you a [Swirled Wax]! [Swirled Waxes] can be used to re-roll the stats of a Bee's Beequip, for better or worse. Beequips with higher potential are more likely to roll better stats. If you have a beequip with high potential and want to test your luck, test them out! To use a [Swirled Wax], just drag it to the hive slot of the bee holding the Beequip you want to alter. It's pretty rad! Well, thanks for bringing warmth back to Beesmas. Tell Bucko Bee the Snow Machine is powerless now! Happy Honeydays!

Trivia

  • Since the quests are all chosen at random, including the first, the formula for the first requirements of any quest is "x multiplied by (number of Gifted Riley Bee quests completed +1)"
  • Gifted Riley Bee is one of the three NPCs that are based on bees, the others being Gifted Bucko Bee and Honey Bee (NPC).
  • Gifted Riley Bee is the first and only quest giver so far to be in the Red HQ.
  • There was a visual glitch where looking through the glass roof over the Red HQ and looked at Gifted Riley Bee, Gifted Riley Bee would have appeared wingless. However, in the 9/28/2019 update, the glass roof was removed.
  • While Gifted Riley Bee says to defeat 50 scorpions in the Honeyday Candles dialogue, the requirement was replaced with collecting 500 red bomb tokens.

Gifted Riley Bee appears "wingless."
