Bumbles can be found next to Ancel Mildenhall in the basement of Mildenhall Meadery in Stormsong Valley (east of Brennadam). The questchain that leads to Back to the Lab must be completed before Ancel and Bumbles appear in the basement.
This comes from warcraftpets.com
As of right now, not sure where to find the formula.
I've discovered the solution to this!
Steps to finish the achievement:
1) Go to the Mildenhall Meadery in Stormsong Valley and kill
. They have a very low chance to drop
Annealed Honey Amulet
2) When you get the amulet go to Boralus. In the northern area of the city at 51, 47 is a shop called Scribes & Nobles. Talk to
inside. After she tells you her story you'll receive
. She does have multiple spawn points throughout Boralus, this is just the one I found her in.
3) Take the letter back to Mildenhall Meadery to Ancel in their laboratory basement. Give him the letter and you'll be given a new quest called
Bumbles the Bee
. It sends you to the other laboratory in the cave at 73, 72 just up the hill. On the table inside is
Raimond's Secret Ingredient
. Pick it up and take it back to Ancel.
4) Ancel will give another quest afterwards called
Let's Bee Friends
. It's a daily quest that has you create
Mildenhall Growth Formula
by picking up
Vial of Honey Slime
items from the mobs outside. You use them to create the formula which is then fed to Bumbles next to Ancel. You can do this only once a day and after seven days you'll receive the achievement and the pet,
Darn, beat by 4 minutes! But still imgur album guide below.
Secret start, but daily after.
Follow the imgur album:
- Kill flowing honey to get an amulet
- Bring the amulet to Ancel's mother (Rosaline) in Boralus/Tiragarde Sound
- Receive letter from Rosaline to deliver to Ancel
- Ancel gives you a quest to make a formula
- Make formula from quest and feed to bumbles
- Do this 7 days and you get the achievement! (hopefully it leads to bee mount :D )

Have found another spot for Rosaline Mildenhall however she appears to be stuck inside a building with no access. at (57,66).
Still working out how to get in there :/ haven't seen her in any of the other spawn points so far.
Found Rosaline on the second floor of a building called Goldman's Cafe (55.47, 62.95)
Hey guys, Here is an awesome guide by one of my friends on whisperwind put together =)
Step 1: Kill
drops from them. (about .3% drop, took me 132 kills)
Step 2: Take this amulet and go find
in Boralus I found Rosaline inside a shop in Boralus called Scribes & Nobles (51, 47). Use /Tar Ros and run around to find her.
Step 3: take the letter she gives you to
At the bee Farm.
After that just follow his quests and you'll begin the dailies for the achievement and the pet =D.
If you're like me and Rosaline bugs out and spawns in an unenterable building:
Type /tar Ros to target her (if you realized you cant find her then you probably knew this already).
In keybinds->Targeting bind Interact with target to some key you never use.
Then hug the wall that she's behind and use your interact key.
I made a video guide for this achievement, you can find it on Happy Gamer, video is called
Lets Bee Friends Achievement and Bumbles Pet
I sent the link to Wowhead as a suggested video for this page.
Myself and a friend did this yesterday, it took me about 6 minutes to get the Annealed Honey Amulet, and my friend took 10 minutes, so I think the 0.3% drop rate that has been reported is incorrect.
I found Rosaline in a house near the Mariner's Row flight path, you can see the location in the video.
Good luck with your farming for this pet.
The droprate on the amulet seems to be very low. I've been farming consistently for about 4 hours without it dropping. My quests are complete, the Bee is next to the boy, so I know I'm eligible for it.
The best place I've found for farming is the honey farm just south of the main farm that has Honey Crazed maulers in it. The Maulers themselves have a long respawn time, but the flowing honey respawns consistently/ near instantly, to the point that I was constantly in combat.
EDIT: I got the amulet literally on my first pull after posting this comment. So about 4 hours of farming, maybe a couple hundred, I'd put the droprate around 1%ish
I just got a second amulet while collecting the honey for the daily quest (2nd day).
When i'm back in Boralus I'll go and see if Rosaline has her speech again even though I've already given her her amulet.
Found her at 57,66 in a building beside Barrel & Crate. You can't get in but there was a covered walkway with some books stacked against the wall and standing on those I was able to use interact with target to speak to her.
She didn't give any new dialogue just the option to repeat her story and another to replace the letter
Just some follow up, I got server first Bumbles today and currently no chain to the mount. However I am hoping tomorrow Bumbles himself will give me a daily much like the falcosaurs did that will lead us to that bee mount. I will keep everyone updated when I know more!
I've completed the quest chain here and done Back to the Lab. I've got Ancel Wrex Sam and Raimond in the basement and received my Luminous Honey Jar reward but there is NO Bumbles present next to Ancel. I've left the zone & come back and relogged, but there is no Bumbles pet next to Ancel. Can I still do the achievement ?
Make sure you do Ancel's quest chain before farming for the item!
Update to my previous comments on this page. A GM had me logoff my character to verify my quest log was complete for the chain in the meadery, he had my relog and complete the WQ in the area to see if it fixed Ancel's phasing. Completing the WQ did not fix the phasing, I submitted a 3rd bug report the GM said he had flagged it as a phasing issue to look into. So if anyone else get's this problem, submit a bug report/ticket, the more the merrier so it hopefully gets fixed soon.
Is there a horde equivalent of this, or a different way for horde to get this pet altogether?
After completing the seven daily quests my character earned the achievement, however no
pet was added to my the inventory. Tried relogging and it showed up as a lost Mail item, so check a mailbox if this happens to you.
Mind you, these quests do give Storm's Wake rep, nice little bonus.
"Let's 'bee' friends." can I just say I choo choo choose to do this quest/grind for the pet?
I note that EVERY comment came from those playing the beta, NONE from live servers. We are WELL into live and I have never, ever see ANYONE with this mount. I dare say, it is non-existent on live, at least in 8.0.x.
Had to kill 25 Flowing Honey to get the Annealed Honey Amulet so that's 4% drop rate. Good luck.
per mail by
A nice new bug (hopefully just a visual) in 8.1:
Every time you log out, it will erase your progress (X / 7) for this achievement to where it was prior to 8.1. Right now I got 3, and it drops me back to 1 every time.
In 4 days we will know if that's only a UI bug, or if I managed to make this unbeatable.
I did this ach with my alt and now I need to get ach with my main.. How ever daily q doesnt exist even that I have looted item and gave it to rosaline and did the following chain..
hmmm. do I need to release my bumble to obtain the daily q?
As others have, I was unable to get the daily quest on my main after getting the pet and achv on an alt.
"Thank you for contacting us! this is Game Master Malkuarai. I see that you have a situation with the quest Let's Bee Friends.
After investigating more about this issue I found that we have received multiple reports of this issue and are currently investigating it. Currently, we do not have a workaround. Be sure to check our Bug Report forums for any new issues. If you discover a new issue, you can report it there or in-game through the in-game bug report feature.
I just made a report for this situation to contribute to the investigation.
Forum of the Game:
I have a horrible suspicion I got the amulet early on and maybe even started the Bumbles quest chain, but abandoned it. Does anyone know of a script that will allow me to check it? I did Ancel's initial quests and he's now in the basement with Bumbles beside him, but there's no dialogue offered.
Alternatively, has anyone had the quest item drop and the quest activated on a second character? I don't mind farming for the amulet again but if it's one-time only, one per account, then I might be unlucky
If you're like me and got your achievement and then started panicking - worry not!
Your pet will be delivered to your mailbox.

I completed the whole quest line. I can't get the stuff I need to feed to the bees to complete the achievement.
