In order to synthesize Honey, you will need the following ingredients:

  • A Beehive-type ingredient.
  • A Lumber-type ingredient.
  • A Bug-type ingredient.

For the Beehive-type ingredient, fast travel to Capital Outskirts – Meeresbrise Highway.

You will find beehives under the large trees on the side of the road.
