Distilling on Obsidian - Has the puzzle changed?
Edit: Posted in the wrong forum, drat! I'll see if I can get it moved to Tips N Tricks...

Ahoy all,

I've asked around my flag, and I can't seem to find anyone who has reliably distilled for a while, so I turn to everyone here with my question.

As of a few days ago, potentially with the November patch/update, distilling has been spawning MANY more spice pieces for my pirates. I don't mean one or two, but 5-7 on the board at a time. Now, I'm around a GM distiller on Obsidian (or.. was) and so I routinely hit CC11/12, and my max is CC13. I would get a spice piece here or there, and I can work around it and I also felt like it didn't really kill my scores.

Now, I am seeing 10+ spices each puzzle and it's blocking EVERY move that I know. Speed doesn't seem to be an issue; it's literally the spices.

I've also noticed that on the distilling stat board (lol) there are now fewer and fewer Ults on the list and it's got me wondering, legitimately, if there was an undercover puzzle spawn change. It is even harder now, IMO, and I really just need a sanity check. I haven't checked out other oceans, so if others would chime in that would be great too.

TL;DR Am I crazy or has distilling started spawning much tougher boards with more spices?

You mean "I saw Apollo in the Lima inn - perhaps he did it", and the answer is "No, I didn't".
