I'd also change it to 100% but the devs insist on a lower chance to create the impression of a quest for the heart, searching for something precious that doesn't automatically show up in your inventory.

Or the chance should increase when you do not find it...

That's the problem with it in part either have requirements or have to find something not both. makes ppl want to quit like here you have to meet these requirements ... oh and you have to find this as well blah reason why I will be dropping down to one toon soon. was a pain finding the heart gem as it was not gonna even try for it on my other toon. use up my shrooms then done there.

Messing with the time machine. I didn't use it yesterday because I wanted to be sure everything stacked.

The day before that, I was getting 250 honor.

Just did the TM, had 6/300. I got 10 honor and it used up all 6 "minutes."

I liked it better the other way.

I understand that when you're talking about players that do not -yet- meet the requirements... when they get to minimum level (for Tower), they will start trying to get this precious item, and it will feel like a reward to get it.

Contrast it to release date, where I will take myself as an example. I got bored of the game (at ~380lvl), and stopped playing. I read the announcement about this new feature, and was excited to start playing again, since I (still) am a fan of Dungeon Keeper, and felt it would be an interesting twist. Thus I come back to the game, grab some shrooms, get set, and ... still have no access to this new feature almost two weeks after the release (yup, still nothing, mining every 8 hours since release ).

I hope I don't need to tell you how off-putting this is - I wanted to give the game a second chance, and probably spend more shrooms in it. Instead, I've been grinding the same (hopeless, useless) grind for almost two weeks, with nothing new (other than bucketloads of gems).

If the devs want to make it "precious", spend a few more hours coding and make the droprate inversely proportional to mine level. Mining with a level 10 mine should not have the same droprate as mining on a 15+ level mine, to balance out the increased mining time. So eg you could have 20% on a lvl10 mine, and a 50% on a lvl15 mine, and so on. That would both keep the precious aspect, and reward people for investing into a (for the most part) useless upgrade to the building itself.

But hey, what do I know? I'm just an ex-player who wanted back in the game for a new feature that I never saw because the RNG didn't R enough. Whelp, I guess I'll go back into being an ex-player, and let the devs have their "precious" stone to themselves.

Totally agree, considering also that a lvl 20 mine will take more time and resources to start a search.

That's only relevant right now, because on newer servers you won't have higher level Mine.

In fact it's probably irrelevant as we talk about this. Probably 99,9% or maybe even everyone got the heart.

You're making me feel previous for not having it...

Hexblot I hear you, I agree that the drop chance should be 100%. Nonetheless, the coders decided to stick to their number.
