  • We found out that it should be possible to get Chocolatine for free, if you always try to save up tokens.

  • Always move to free spaces and avoid the to obstacles where possible

  • Prefer path with a lot of tokens

  • Use the switch card on checkpoint lanes to gather all gifts

  • Make sure you get all the tokens you can from rides and competition entries.

  • Think carefully about your next move

  • Wait until the end of the event and collect fragments throughout the event, it makes it so much cheaper.

  • If you want the Divine I would wait until you collected all the Divine fragments first before opening the fleece.

  • Take your time, start each day by collecting tokens (5 rides, enter 5 competitions…) this will help you get nice gifts without spending passes.

  • Sometimes it’s better to lose 1 move on a 3 moves card (cost: 1 token) instead of using two 1 move cards for 1 token each.

  • Some obstacles can be avoided by more than one option. It is better to choose the option that is specific to the obstacle so that you have more flexibility

  • Always log in and collect the tokens if you want to get close to the divine/get good BMI's

  • If you are going for chocolate croissant then it’s worth getting all the fragments from the hike, especially with the x2 multiplier from the community objective, you may not have to spend on so many fleeces.

  • Take all fragments, if you like to have the special horse

  • Try to keep going in a straight path. This way, you don’t use up as many tokens! The trick is to pick the path that has the least number of obstacles!

  • If you are not targeting the Divine horse, do not hesitate to switch lanes to get gifts, going farther does not necessary mean getting better gifts.

  • It is possible to get all 3 gifts at the checkpoint by using the sideways movement but you must time your steps so you land on that checkpoint step where all the prizes are given. So do not select a step option that will take you past the checkpoint.

  • If you are interested in bm item rather than the divine, use the object that allow you to change paths when there are multiple bm items on a row.

  • If possible, move to the lane with least obstacles

  • Don’t be tempted to switch lanes to grab a token that is in it, depending on the obstacles in that lane it may not be worth it.

  • Do not forget to gather free tokens every day!

  • You get 15 tokens every day and there are some good prizes on the hike. Enjoy

Have fun hiking through France,

The Howrse Team

Who knows. Howrse may release the males next year. It can happen.

But for the chocolate croissant you could only get 15 points each try roughly

We all get the multiplier so the average is from 11 to 19 fragments but this is x 2 so 22 to 38 is what you should expect.

This is the first event on Howrse that I've actually managed to get the Divine on, and while I didn't get Chocolate Croissant in the Golden Fleece I managed to get 208 fragments in it, which when doubled and added to the fragments I won through the event got me him anyway!

@Freehold - yeah but a maximum of 19 points (x2) is still very pathetic, especially considering the price of a golden fleece. I was expecting 30-50 fragments standard then multiplied by 2 default smiley (8)

I was getting as little as 9 fragments from the Golden Fleece default smiley (n) These Divine Fragments are the single BIGGEST ripoff Howrse has come up with so far!!

Yes, finally we get a Divine thru a Promo without costing us any passes, terrific hey, a useless stinking Pastry Divinedefault smiley :@

Though I have found the actual French Hike promo pretty decent, as it's easy, not all that time consuming, and has quite a few good prizes, I'd have to agree, that the amount of divine fragments received is a bit pathetic. I've got on average 15 per fleece (30 with the bonus). 15 fragments for 200 passes is just ridiculous.

The Golden Fleece is complete and utter rubbish. I bought one and I got 10 fragments. 10. While I did get Chocolatine, she will rot away in my breeding farm as I will not be wasting my passes on such awful fragment outputs.

For something that costs 200 passes, it will end up being just as expensive with the extremely ridiculous amount of fragments being given out. Disgusting!

That is why I restarted the Hike. I got a bunch more fragments ( over 100) and spending 90P for tokens turned out a lot cheaper than spending 200P on GFs.

Like everything else we have to weigh the cost of one vs the other.

The next promo will be a nice one as we can craft our own gifts.
