General Notes

Being one of the only healers in the fire splinter, this monster is key in many types of hands. The low health, speed, attack, and armor make the card hard to work with in some cases, but it is not a bad card over all. At max level it also unlocks the inspire ability, which can boost your overall team.

You can add to the stats of the monster using other monster abilities to allow for longer life. Some suggestions are to use protect, strengthen, swiftness, and repair in other areas of the team to help to preserve this monster farther into the match. Potentially take precautions to position this card in a place that snipe and sneak do not target it first. These location precautions are always dependent on the conditions of the match and the setup of the rest of the team being played.

Lore

Since their original entrance to the Splinterlands through the cracks of the Molten Mountains some hundred years ago, Fire Beetles have spread to every corner and crevasse of the Burning Lands. Not only have they thrived and multiplied in the hot, acidic air, but the species has evolved in several different directions. One of the more terrifying varieties is the Beetle Queen. A Beetle Queen is equipped with the same naturally replenishing supply of nape juice as any Fire Beetle, but with one key difference. Beetle Queens have wings. Fire is tougher to avoid when it is raining from above.
