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.

So true!

Gave up after 3 - one from objectives, one from inventory, and one from passes.

23 dust total - so about 130 HoPs total if you're not lucky, at a 'generous' 7.6 dust per HoP (compared to what others have been getting).
That'd cost 13,000 passes, and it would take 1,300 weeks for Indigo to pay it back at 10 passes/week - 25 years if my maths is correct. Yikes. Someone please correct me!

Congrats to you too! My stack is definitely not as big as yours! Though I did get a Nyx Pack, MA and GA with my 12 HOPs too so I'm not complaining.

I wonder if they're just trying to strip us of HOPs because something involving them is coming up soon... I wouldn't put them beyond them though I've been told lately my train of thought can be often malicious default smiley (lol) I blame it on climate change and no one seeming to care about it default smiley xd


Thanks for returning the congrats, but I'm not one of the ones that got one! I only had one HOP in inventory after using them up to get tack the other week. My second was won in the first.

Yep, clearing out the HOP pile does seem possible to me too... though mine was already cleaned out! If the last of that tack comes out next week I will scream! LOL

Running total of what's been posted in the thread: I think it's now at 2 divines out of 78 HOPs... odds have gone down again!

I tried 2 GF as well, 50 Divine dust. No way I'm spending 8 000 passes for a divine...

Ohh, I completely misunderstood that! So, 42 HOPs total, still only one Indigo. At least they didn't cost me anything!

4000 passes and 28 inventory HOPs later - still not even halfway up the meter. I give up - I'll wait for the next time it comes around.

I am so shook at how terrible the odds are - I can see how people get stuck into gambling even when the numbers are so clearly way out of whack. The sunk cost fallacy is so strong.

I have to agree about the HOP fragment rate. I've tried 4 and had good BMIs in 3 of them but not got more than 9 dust in any one. The last one I tried gave me 4 fragments. Luckily, I don't need Indigo and was just being greedy so not trying any more!

I got Devoted Indigo after just 7 HoPs, so 700 passes total. However, the dust was the worst I've seen so far. I got just 4-8 fragments in the first 6 HoPs I opened, which means it would literally cost you 125-166 HoPs, up to 16,600 passes, if you keep on getting just fragments! All I can say is that I'm really thankful for just spending 700 passes & that this is truly ridiculous. I didn't get a single good BMI in the HoPs I opened either, best I got was a P stroke. default smiley :s

I cleared out my HOP stash of 15, and bought 1 more with passes, for 102 dust and no divine. I noticed that I got 4 fragments several times. That's the lowest I've seen the dust, ever. I thought 9 or 11 was bad, but 4? default smiley (d)

I just had a look in the directory, and at this point 29 people have won a devoted indigo today. Wouldn't it usually be more than that?

I think I'm going to write to contact us and ask them (politely) if this could be a bug default smiley xd

I've opened the 10 HOPs that I'd been saving in my inventory, and I have only got 58 fragments. That is, on average, 5.8 fragments per HOP. So it would take 173 HOPs to get 1000 if you continued to be unlucky. What a shame, I was hoping to win my first divine, but I suppose not!

I opened 58 HOPs and my divine dust is at 387. I'm never one to complain about luck items - they are luck, after all - but I'm in complete awe... 15,000 passes is way too much to expect someone to pay for one divine.

especially when he gives 10 passes every week... the gemstone divines were the same price and they worth much more

I wish I read some of these comments before blowing through a decent part of my HOP stash. Averaging 5.4 dust per HOP - yikes!

I tried my luck and immediately regretted it. Only 4 dust! Come on even howrse knows that’s insane. Once upon a time they had been in the reserved sales for less than half the cost of that indigo would be now. I have always wanted the rainbow divines but I guess i’m Sitting this out.

I've submitted a ticket about this. I'd have expected to have got the divine from dust alone after 50+ HoPs I'd hoarded up, but I'm not even halfway there. Surely it's a bug... right?

I spent 26 HoP’s and 5,000 passes and my meter is only at 502 divine dust. Ridiculous.

I had send a ticket too, to the Dutch Owlient. They responded with, roughly translated: We asked our team - developers said numbers were correct, so no bug - Dutch Owlient also thought it very low, but couldn't promise it would change for Indigo or other horses in HoP

So we finally get an hop divine and I use my whole stack of hops (about 30), the hops that I won from hops, and passes to get her and I'm sitting with 241 fragments. Wow howrse. So you finally give us something we ask for, you give us a way to get it and then you make it beyond impossible to get. Whereas before it would take 18 hops to get a divine if you failed every time. default smiley default smiley (li)

And the best part: everything I want to say to howrse is against the rules. Great. Just great.

Also got my reply: they are submitting feedback on this promotion to the team... (I got the impression the person who replied to me agreed, lol)

I've used 13 HOPS so far and only 85 divine dust, this is beyond a joke. I have 10 more HOPs but won't be using them unless something changes as what's the point!! default smiley (li)

Since a few people sent feedbacks to the team I thought it was a good idea I did it too. The more the merrier? Maybe they'll take us seriously, it can't hurt to try. I'll encourage people on my server to do the same.

Hello everyone.

Just wanted to pop in and let you all know that it does appear that the promotion and the fragment drop rate is working as intended.

We understand that the drop rate feels very low and we are collecting feedback to show the team.

We will be monitoring this topic for feedback and you are always welcome to leave feedback with Contact Us.

Thanks.
