I've done Hive only once so far, when I had the quest. Actually I'm looking for a way to get orbs/high leveled ring drops, other than SS. I'm a 9.1 now and as soon as I reach CL 10, Hive will most likely become the place for me to level up. sweatdrop
I don't care about the gold and how long it takes as long as I get CL 7-8+ rings and many orbs.
