I've noticed small hives of bees but whenever I try to approach to harvest the honey Geralt starts getting attacked by the bees. I tried casting Quen and then harvesting but nothing came of it. Does anyone know how you are supposed to harvest the honey?
Use the Igni Sign to kill the bees and knock the beehive down.
Once its on the ground you can harvest it. Figured this out a little bit later, initially could not even attempt this as the beehive I was trying various methods on was near an NPC and the game restricted me from using Igni.
No one fully answered this.
Knock the hive off the tree Use Igni to burn the bees flying around If when you approach it there is the gauntlet instead of the (E) Loot use Igni on it. Wait for the fire to go out and you should see the (E) Loot
