I don't expect big drops every day, but pretty much every single day I've struggled to make it past 10, with today not even getting past level 1. I'm at 25 spices, I got it on Friday, this means I've only got the minimum ever since I got it. Am I really going to need to wait 30 days for 20 passes? It's really discouraging after having to max the meter for it. It also isn't like I'm trying to get to the high levels, I'm just trying to reach 15, yet that seems impossible with this new spice.

I am honestly just wishing that the series was one you woke up and it found spices based on the table provided, this way you would not have had to gamble with the drop rate, and it would have stopped so much frustration. Or, if the game stays, have it so you get the previous levels spices. Even something like that would be a massive improvement over just ending up with 5 every single day.

Missing 10 spices for Cinnamon 2nd drop, so tomorrow or the day after - seems to be in the average

If our testing is correct, you're not.

Cumin is going to be a much more accurate way to test the Spices. If the game is going to 'compensate', we'll know for certain. default smiley :)

Hi I'm back with unsolicited maths.

To reach 15 spices you need lvl 4, which has probability 0.9*0.8*0.65 = 0.468 of success. You failed 5 days in a row, this would have probability (1-0.468)^5 = 0.0426 (binomial distribution). So what has happened to you is at a 4% probability.

This is relatively unlikely to happen, but you know, 4 out of 100 people will have this happen to them... just unlucky I suppose?

I am officially at 69 spices with Cumin. I keep getting stopped at 7 spices unfortunately. On the contrary, my Cinnamon has gotten to fifteen spices 3 days in a row until now.

If you fail a level you get to 5 spices, it's impossible to get 7 unless you collect at 7, unless my understanding of the Divine is wrong. default smiley :)

I haven’t done a full test yet on Cumin but I got him on March 8 and decided just to go all the way each time, pass or fail. Got his first payout March 13 so 5 days for the first one but I believe the metre came partially filled already? Not every divine does that so I can remember completely but it does look like Cumin will payout in about half the time as Cinnamon if you just keep going every day

Fail at seven spices as in i.e. I do not get any higher than Level 2, I do however continue to get 5 spices. Here is my pace checker since his first drop:
1-10s (claimed)
2-5s (failed getting to 15s)
3-5s (failed getting to 15s)
4-7s (failed getting to 10s)
5-5s (failed getting to 10s)
6-5s (failed getting to 10s)
7-5s (failed getting to 15s) - I got overly confident in this one default smiley (lol)
8-5s (failed getting to 10s)
9-7s (claimed)
10-5s (failed getting to 10s)
11-10s (claimed)

Originally was trying to get to 15 but now I am going for 10 or 7 tbh.

First drop from Cumin, I always try to go to 80 with him (except the last day where I only needed 30 spices to fill the metre):

1. 80s
2. 5s
3. 5s
4. 5s
5. 5s
6. 5s
7. 5s
8. 5s
9. 5s
10. 30s

41 days. Forty One. Test Cinnamon truly does hate me.

That's 41 days of clicking, (not consecutive though, because being repeatedly ill is not conducive to regular howrsing) aiming for the full 80 each day.

Other Cinnamon where I aim for 15 spices each day paid out after 35 days.

Afraid I've not being keeping track of Cumin because I prefer to pretend it's All Fiiine.

They are lucky they're pretty, put it that way. I even like Gypsum more, because he knows how to manage expectations, the good boy.

Those who got Paprika, is she the same as Cinna, point wise? default smiley :)

I got a pack with Paprika today, would it useful if I kept a record of what spices I got when (going for 80 every time)?

It absolutely would.
If she's the same as Cinnamon (28-30 days) that would be a very interesting pattern as it's rare that divines from the same series emulate the same drop rate (ie Agate/Amber) default smiley :)

I'll post after the first fifteen days and hopefully that'll help set a pattern; my Cinnamon gauge helpfully restarted today so I can compare the rate exactly.
