Talk:Spice melange

From TheKolWiki
Jump to: navigation, search


You pop the spice melange into your mouth and chew it up. You're thinking to yourself "self, this stuff has a surprisingly pleasant cinnamon taste to it," when suddenly your senses kick into overdrive.

There is an audible buzz as your metabolism speeds up and your consciousness expands. You become aware of every mote of air as it dances around you. Possible futures unfold before you. You especially like the ones where you're rich, famous and drunk.

After a while, the more intense effects of the spice wear off. You wipe the drool off your chin and, invigorated and refreshed by the experience, resolve to get back to business.

(I dunno what it did, no effects)--Wylin 19:08, 4 July 2008 (CDT)

  • Somewhere on here it needs to say its one use. I used one thinking it was multiple use. 350k down the drain--Macoronikevin 05:46, 22 March 2009 (UTC)
    • What, the "On subsequent uses" section didn't quite spell it out?--Toffile 06:09, 22 March 2009 (UTC)
  • I used one, and was reduced from 25 drunk to 22 drunk. I was also previously at 15 fullness, and was able to consume 3 more fullness before again becoming full. These two effects have been noted. --Lilac 21:25, 4 July 2008 (CDT)
    • Wow, crazy. I thought a long time ago things like sober pills convinced TPTB that fullness/drunkenness removers were really bad ideas. Wonder if you can use more than one of them a day? --Flargen 21:27, 4 July 2008 (CDT)
      • There's probably a limit like the mojo filter. Azrane 21:44, 4 July 2008 (CDT)
      • Yes, this seems open to abuse, but a limit might eliminate that problem. --Phantomreader42 22:11, 4 July 2008 (CDT)
      • So, do you think it cleans your spleen too? --Prestige 04:24, 5 July 2008 (CDT)
        • This item does not remove spleen damage; I tested that at the same time as food/booze. Lilac 12:04, 5 July 2008 (CDT)
      • Besides, there's currently 3 spleen-removing items (mojo filter, greasy slider, and some kinda drink, can't remember what), and no infinite spleen bug. I'm guessing that by the time mojo filters came out, they figured out how to make spleen/fullness/drunkeness-removing items that can get around that sober pills bug. --Jimfromtx 03:20, 6 July 2008 (CDT)
  • It says "Removes 3 drunkenness and restores 3 fullness." That wording is a bit ambiguous. At first I thought it meant it decreased drunkenness and increased fullness. Rewording might make it easier to understand. --Phantomreader42 22:11, 4 July 2008 (CDT)
    • Sorry about that. Lilac 12:04, 5 July 2008 (CDT)

This could make infinite adventures even more possible when combined with the food and drink that clean out your spleen. There has to be a use limit, especially if they're not TOO rare. --Ducksan 23:08, 4 July 2008 (CDT)

A member in my clan said he could not use another spice melange after using his first one today.--Gotmilk 10:45, 5 July 2008 (CDT)

I can report--for whatever it's worth--that the melange definitely only clears off fullness that you have already used. I overdrank and then I used one but I hadn't eaten yet; I was only able to eat the usual (5) sausage wontons.--Blzbob 02:58, 12 July 2008 (CDT)

Drop Chance

how rare is it-(drop chance)--Qbr12 16:35, 7 July 2008 (CDT)

Came out of Ronin today with 45 turns left. Wearing Green Pixie, bounty hunting gear, and several temporary buffs and potions (but not the cyclops eyedrops, as those are too expensive to consider on a regular basis). KoLMafia reports that my item drop rate is currently +292%. I spent 45 turns playing drums, and no melange yet. Sure did get a lot of spices, but not enough to pay for the drum machines obviously.  :( I'll try some more tomorrow. --Kazim 09:10, 12 July 2008 (CDT)

So I've been doing drum runs for three days now... I've spent a total of about 400 turns to acquire two melanges. My current +item bonus (by Mafia's measure) is +312.67%. My first item came after spending about 60 turns; second after another 90; and I'm still waiting for the third to drop. I don't know if this means there are diminishing returns built into the game, but I'd have to say the drop rate is quite a bit below 1%. --Kazim 13:56, 14 July 2008 (CDT)

Got it on my 10th drum at only 138.3% increase- probably a freak accident though. Ironically, I was reading Dune at the time. --Bobtheadventurer 17:21, 20 August 2008 (CDT)

2 melanges in 11 adventures with +84% itemdrop. Proof: _ttp:// . Actually it's only my luck and actual drop rate is really 0.1% :) --NightBird 17:37, 6 January 2010 (UTC)

A few more data points: 0/10 @ +1190% and 0/20 @ +1115%--Lotsofphil 21:15, 6 August 2010 (UTC)

It's worth noting that pumpkin bomb doesn't cause a melange drop --Moth 12:27, 23 January 2011 (UTC)

I've got my moxie buffed to 4366 today (it being Dependence Day), and I've had 2 melange drops so far in 18 turns. Is this just RNG love, or what? --Kay Dekker 20:35, 10 February 2011 (UTC)

  • [sarcasm]I once got two in a day when I did an ancient voodoo dance! Maybe the droprate is influenced by voodoo?[/sarcasm] Seriously though, that is almost certainly random luck. Highly unlikely does not mean impossible --CheezyBob 03:27, 11 February 2011 (UTC)
    • Oh, absolutely, that's what I thought; extremely likely to be due to RNG swing. Then again, highly likely doesn't mean certain :) --Kay Dekker 20:48, 11 February 2011 (UTC)

Does this count as food? Booze? Just curious about the effect of +food drops.--Peterlorre

  • It's not something you eat and it's not something you cook with. I'm very sure +food drops will have not effect. --Club (#66669) (Talk) 00:20, 21 April 2011 (UTC)
