The Hive is one of the Adventures BETA. In this adventure, you see Cosmo, the Koala alpha, once again, and you meet Greely, the Wolf alpha, for the very first time. You are also introduced to the Phantom King, which you must defeat to complete the adventure.
When you begin the adventure, you'll be told some information, and then you get to explore the cave you must destroy some phantoms pods and a couple phantom webs, at some point, Greely will talk to you, listen to what he says and find and talk to Cosmo. He will tell you to look for four Alpha Stones to open the sealed door, look for them in the cave.
TIP: Always carry a torch and boomseeds with you, so you're not caught off guard. If you are lost, use the map. If the Phantoms put you in a deep sleep, you will lose your torch or Alpha stone, so watch out! Note: this will only happen in hard mode.
TIP: The path through the darkness is different depending on what difficulty you play. The path on Hard mode has two different paths that it could be - it picks one of them randomly each time you play. Normal has it's own path which is the same every time. The normal path was updated in the 03-20-2014 update to be much shorter (and easier). The normal path now only passes by the elephant door. Hard mode still passes by both the horse and elephant doors.When you find all the Alpha Stones and place them in their places to open the door, when you open it,
Cosmo will talk to you. After that, you will confront the Phantom King.
Go near him, he'll attempt a smash attack. Once he uses the smash attack (Whether you get hit or not), he will become stunned. When he is stunned, use a boomseed on him. If you get hit by him, you loose half of your hearts. You have to hit him a approximately twelve times.
Be noted that he will summon phantoms to support him (After you hit him a couple times). He will spawn more and more as the battle goes on. It is advised to go after the escort first.
Also, the boomseed pile will occasionally teleport around (Three Boomseeds in each pile).
After he is defeated, it will take a little while so go pick up all the gems from defeated phantoms. Then you will talk to Cosmo, who will praise you on your bravery. You can select a prize and exit through the portal.
