|Walkthrough & Notes|
'Sorry to say, but I got more bee problems. You saved the one hive, but the queens in the others were killed by the bears, and I need new ones. But it isn't that simple.
'First of all, the wild hives are off in the woods to the south...that's right, where all them bears live in the first place. Second thing -- and we'll deal with it first -- those wild bees don't take kindly to being moved, so you'll need to protect yourself from their stings. Now Gammer Boffin up in Overhill, she's got some kind of balm that will protect you from stings, so you just go and get some of that salve from her.
'Overhill is almost due north of here, the other side of Hobbiton, so it's a ways off. Hurry back...I need those queens!'
Farmer Polo Proudfoot needs new bee queens to replace the ones killed by bears. Before you can go hunting wild hives, you'll need to get a salve to protect yourself from bee stings.
Gammer Boffin is in Overhill, some considerable distance north of Tuckborough, on the other side of Hobbiton.
Before you can collect new queen-bees for Farmer Proudfoot, you will need to obtain the means to protect yourself from the stings of the wild bees. Proudfoot told you to get a special balm from Gammer Boffin.
Before you can hunt new queens for Farmer Proudfoot's hives, he sent you to Gammer Boffin to get some salve to protect you from the stings of the wild bees; however, Gammer Boffin does not have all the ingredients she needs to prepare the salve. She has asked you to collect some toad-stones for the salve.
