1-3(DG) DB guaranteed samples can be found at the following locations:

This ingredient is not in the VendorItemIngredient category that allows it to be traded by apothecary merchants (see bugs).

The only way to make this ingredient become available from apothecary merchants is to unlock the Merchant perk (requires level 50 Speech), at which point it is a "common" ingredient.

Remaining ways to obtain already-harvested beehive husks all have relatively low probabilities. The best bets are:

  • Peddlers may be randomly encountered in the wilderness (typically being attacked). These peddlers have a 25% chance of carrying 1-5 samples.
  • Vaermina devotees have a 3% chance of carrying one.
  • All types of apothecary's satchels as well as pots hanging from cooking spits have a 3% chance of containing one.
  • Warlocks have a 0.9% chance of carrying one.

  • This ingredient cannot normally be bought from apothecary merchants, even though it should be available according to their merchandise leveled lists. It also cannot be sold to apothecary merchants; it can only be sold to general goods merchants.
