New: Divine Dust!

Divine Dust




As conveyed several times, we have added an additional way to get divine horses that are offered through special marketing offers, if you’re very unlucky. Divine dust are in luck items promotions, and each type of luck item has its own divine dust.

When you open a luck-based item and don’t find the highlighted divine on offer, you get the divine dust instead! Divine dust accumulates within a gauge that you can see directly from each of the luck items’ description pages. When the meter is full, you win the divine!





If you have not filled it before the offer ends, the dust earned disappears and cannot be used for another one (the meter will start empty when a new divine is offered). Additionally, once you have won the divine (via luck or the divine dust) there isn’t anymore dust left to find in the luck item.

Starting today and through this weekend, you can find the Celtic divine Cernunnos hiding in the Golden Fleece; including the Golden Fleece divine dust.

This is a very welcome addition to the game on my part.

The Grand Challenge has always been one of my fave promos because of being able to buy the divine if we are unlucky in the item once the festivities start, so this is great default smiley (y)

Link in the message sent out just leads to the Golden Fleece BMI, not this forum post.

Also, I'm actually sort of happy about this change, considering it seems that it always ends with me spending too much and sometimes I don't even get anything to show for it.

I like this new addition. It makes luck items more fair.

I'm guessing this is only relevant to the item that has the Divine in it as I opened 12hops this morning and i don't remember receiving any Divine Dust!!

Yes that's correct only the item that currently has a Divine offered will give Divine Dust.

I love the idea but if you don't have the item you can't get either the dust or the horse which kinda stinks. But anything that helps me win a divine is great.

how many items do you have to open to get enough divine dust to get the divine?

The meter is under the picture of the Divine available..

I found the Divine in three tries..one fleece in stock and 400 passes
The first two gave me 51 and 32 Divine dust respectively . Maybe that will help to get a rough idea of how much you can get at a time

Yeah, that doesn't exist until you spend passes apparently, since it isn't there for me. :/
So again, what is the total you have to get for the meter?

I cant be the only one who read the title as Dust being a new divine can i? default smiley xd

If nothing else more players may be able to get the divines now using stored up items... unless the meter doesn't activate till you spend a pass default smiley (o) then it doesnt really get us anywhere

Just watched the clip at the start of this thread. I noticed it featured two horses, Balios and... wait for it.... Tormenta. Isn't that one of those legendary horses that couldn't possibly have divine dust? default smiley (lol)

While testing on the test server I got dust whether or not I spent passes on the item. I got dust when I opened an item I had in inventory too.

They probably just used her image as a placeholder since it was just a shadow image.

The silhouette on the divine dust page of the change log is a winged draft horse, so I think it's safe to say that the silhouettes aren't of horses that can be obtained with the dust. It's a poorly thought through design choice rather than a hint at what the dust can be used for.

Really? Really? Not accumulated! So I can drop 30$ real money (which I have)and still not have enough dust for the divine and I lose it! What a jokedefault smiley (n)default smiley (n)default smiley (n)default smiley (n)default smiley (n)default smiley (n)

Dust should carry on not expire

Sorry, I have to agree with the others that the divine dust is not a good addition to this game. It should carry over to the next promo if not accumulated. I for one will not collect any. I don't see this as a good thing for this game.

So basically, we're still required to be rich in passes. default smiley xd

One thousand units of dust is too much when you get 30-50 units with each try. At least, that was my luck and I spent fourteen passes. I probably would've needed a little over thirty to get the Divine. The journey to control my Fleece/HoP gambling addiction continues.

The whole "making things cheaper" idea doesn't seem to be working too well. default smiley xd And Howrse stays dangling Divines barely within our reach like this. Advice: don't waste your passes on luck items. Wait for reserved sale Divines.

This would have been excellent a few months ago when I spent 180 passes on golden fleeces trying to win Apeliotes. I gave up after 90 golden fleeces didn't do the trick. I was also livid that I was silly enough to spend my real money on that. The number of passes I buy a month dropped considerably after that promo.

all can say is -- it is going to take a lot of dust to get the divine -- think I'll past and just take my luck with the chance items --- hate to spend money

ok so i have 2 questions
1.
Click to display
what do the different colours mean? does it just mean you can only get dust towards a certain divine through one luck item? cause that would make sense

& 2.
Click to display
what does it mean you can only get the divine once? like you can only get a specific divine once and work towards getting another one in the next promo?? or does it mean you can only get one divine in general through that luck item?

Yes, each luck item has its own color. You can view them in the change log.

You can only win a divine once with that divine dust on that particular weekend. If we get Balios offered in TCs, and you eventually get him by collecting enough dust that weekend, then you can't keep getting dust towards him if you continue opening TCs. It's possible to find the divine again in the luck item on that weekend by chance, but not with dust.

I'm assuming that if Balios were offered on a different weekend you can earn dust towards him again because it's like a different promo and the dust has been reset as it doesn't carry over.

1 question: let's say there is divine in hop and I collect enough divine dust to get divine from that. Does divine just appear in my beeding farm, or do I need to open one more hop with divine inside?
So if I get to lets say level 4 of this TC and decide to claim my prizes will I get divine dust if I haven't been given it in the 4 levels or do I only get it if its cuts me off
