Hunting Bees in Old Newgate is a carousel in University.png The University, released with Mr Chimes' Grand Clearing-Out. It has a grind similar to Brawling with Dockers, and uses Gallblighter.png Bees Caught as a progress quality. Each point of these have an assumed value of 0.1 Icon-echo.png , as well as a bonus of 2.5 Icon-echo.png for turning them in, although this takes 2 actions in addition to gaining the progress qualities. Any surplus points of Gallblighter.png Bees Caught you may have are exchanged for a secondary reward. The activity focuses on Bear.png Dangerous or Owl.png Watchful depending on your Knifeandcandle.png Dagger or Flint. Watchful when Knifeandcandle.png Dagger or Flint is 0-50 and Dangerous when Knifeandcandle.png Dagger or Flint is above 50.

Cagedwoman.png Airs of Old Newgate serves as a randomizer, similar to Clouds.png The Airs of London.
