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.

Go to page:
16 Titan Challenges and I only have 329/1000 dust for Arion.
It's a shame that I won't be able to get him now, as I have no more money to spend, and I doubt I could grab a hoard of passes before the promo is over.
Personally, I think the amount of divine dust you need to gather is way too much, especially for people who can't spend money on the game or have a stable pass income.

Opened 3 TC's just out of curiosity to see if my luck was there (of course it was not) and got 20-23 dust each TC used. So that being said, if you aren't super lucky, expect to shell out 88 to 100 passes to get him via dust.

Again default smiley (n)default smiley (n)default smiley (n) Fix this! It should not take 10000+ passes! Especially if you can find the Devine in the sales for 4000.....

Dang, if only they had this when I bough 80+ golden fleeces to try to get a divine and STILL didn't get it.

Ok Howrse I am really peeved! I spent over 8000 passes and never once got to level 6 or 7 on the TC for Arion! The amount of divine dust given in a TC is pathetic, giving 17 and 18 bits of dust is appalling when I am paying two passes, getting nowhere in a TC and getting bell boots as a consolation gift.

You need to sort it out and increase the amount of dust given for a TC, can’t understand why I would get more dust from a HOP which is only one pass!

You probably still wouldn't have got it! The amount of divine dust you get for opening something is crazy. You need 1000 and only get 10-15 per luck item!

80 fleeces is 16000 passes, a Divine even when having only 10 dust per fleece would cost 10.000 so yeah, they would have gotten it default smiley (lol)default smiley (lol)default smiley (lol)

For me, it feels like the amount of divine dust you get in 1 TC is pretty low.
Ofcourse, I can imagine that it would take more divine dust for a relatively more 'useful' divine, but getting about 10-30 divnine dust per TC, which is a 200 pass item.. Seems off to me.

I spent 5 passes and one HOP to get Blitzen and had half of the Divine dust after using 6 hops. I've been trying to Arion since yesterday, only buying passes when I get the pass UFOs. I've spent 4000 passes and I'm only at 571 Divine dust. HOW in the world do you get more divine dust from a HOP than a TC?! I've only gotten to Level 4 once and the best item I got was a Helio's Ray. I've gotten almost 25 Whips which are completely useless to me since I have VIP. This is the one Divine I've wanted since it came out and I'm livid. It would have been cheaper for me to buy a bunch of skillers and try for the top Rosette winner.

It seems like they came out with Divine Dust to ensure that you'll spend more passes. I feel like they dropped the win rate and just added the Dust so you'll be like "oh I'm halfway to getting it might as well keep going otherwise I've just wasted all these passes."

Well of course you get a lot of divine dust for Blitzen, it's a practically useless divine that most people got for free, so it shouldn't cost that much to you. How Arion can be cosidered a valuable divine, I don't know, I guess it's just for the rareness.

Another wonderful idea to make people spend more money. Amazing.

I'm only going for a divine if its actually worth something to me.

It seems that since this Divine Dust was enacted the chances of *finding* the divine in a luck item are slim to none. I have had to use the Dust to get Croseus, Xanthos, and now Arion. I have never, in my over a decade on this game, had such horrid luck in items. Howrse needs to sort this out, and soon, or there will be more players leaving or just getting by with the promo items and not buying the passes that help fund the game.

Also, since we are now just handing out these "special" divines such as Arion (who was introduced as a rare divine earned by a lot of work on rosettes), Wikaila and Etrian (who took a lot of money, time, and patience due to app crashes to earn) can we please possibly find Archimedes in a luck item next? I mean, all these other divines, with either no or *meh* perks but were rare are now losing value, why not those? Then it can get the nice high GP that the Croseus' were recently introduced with too! Just a thought.

I am the most ANGRY person right now. I purchased passes 4 different times this weekend, the last being literally just now and have spent all but 425 of them (that I spent on an RC) on the Titan's Challenge. I just finished and I also used one Winged Staff and 2 TC's that I had won from TCs. I am at 999 Divine Dust and I only have 28 passes left. I am ENRAGED. This is absolutely ABSURD and I will not be participating in anymore Divines that require Dust to get. 999 Divine Dust. Are you. Kidding. Me.

I would not recommend anyone waste their passes or real life money on things that require Divine Dust. Literally the best thing I got from opening 50 Titan's Challenges was a Hera Pack. One. Hera Pack. Can't tell you how many Whips and Lunges and Bell Boots I got but I got 1 Hera Pack and 999 Divine Dust. So now I have to go kill 2 horses to open my last TC to get one Divine Dust. Perfect.

Sorry Howrse, I'm done.

Just for interest I had a look at the list of Arions. By the dates they've gone from about 4 pages to 14, with just under 200 being won over the weekend. I wonder how many TC's were used to get those?

(Also doesn't do anything to stop me being annoyed over the snowball fight situation... if they can have that increase through TC's, it wouldn't have done them any harm to give out a few more to those of us who just missed the top bracket but ended up with less than people further down. Which I think they should have done anyway since this is a larger server so having the same number as other servers wasn't fair in the first place).

I'd like to say this is the most absurd idea Howrse has ever pumped out, but it's definitely not. It's still terrible, though. I might as well keep churning through passes to get the actual divine and maybe some more stuff along the way if I'm still going to have to spend 10k passes to get enough divine dust to swap for the divine.

I stopped buying passes years ago and I'm glad. This is obnoxious.

Anyone else try for Lug? How much divine dust is in each fleece?

Thanks in advance! Trying to decide if I should go for him!

@RowanGreen I am aware of the post above mine, thanks default smiley :)

I was simply wondering how much divine dust others were getting. Sometime the amount varies and I wanted to know if people were sometime getting more than 50 or less than 50.

LOL, sorry. I now see your wording could be interpreted the way you meant it...

(I've got too used to the people who do jump in without reading. You've got to wonder, if they can't read a few posts, are they going to read the answers?...)

I agree with most of the above posts.


My beef with the Divine Dust is you cannot keep it to add to anything else if you run out of passes to continue.

ie; carry the dust over to another or add to whatever you like.default smiley (o)

Tried for Lug on the UK server:
Got between 50-70 divine dust in every fleece (was lucky and found him in the 6st one).
My friend opened 20 Fleeces to fill the metre and to claim Lug that way - that means about 50 divine dust per Fleece default smiley :)

Good luck in case you're trying for him default smiley (y)

Tested the Dust.
About the usual 1500 pass for Prancer.
About 4000 passes for the Wild Horse.

For a horse that will give less than 800 once fully tamed and aged... Howrse really needs to look into the value of these wilds.
