Something Completely Pointless: Enhancements in the Real World


Recommended Posts

So I spotted this today at the grocery store where I work - Starbuck's Sumatra coffee:




Single Origin? I'm guessing "Natural".  Probably a +Recharge enhancement.

Most definitely dark manipulation. Goes great with the croissants, however.

It's lying.  Definately not Single Origin.  I'm gonna go with recharge plus recovery.

In that case it must be something similar to the unique from the Numina's set. Because the green power icon indicates that it belongs to a Healing set.

In the independent gourmet coffee/bookshop I spent a couple of years working (they "paid" me, but the real benefit was stripped books and leftovers, plus teaching myself the UNIX inventory system) I tried every variety from Columbian to Jamaican Blue Mountain, and by far my favorite was Sumatra Mandheling.


My guess would be this is one of those new D-Sync Endurance Modification/Recharge enhancements.

(Although, being Starbuck's, they probably have figured out a way to over-roast it and overcharge for the privilege.)

Uh... guys, this is coffee.  (Well, Starbucks, so, coffee on the loosest sense possible).


So it's clearly part of a "To Hit" set with set bonuses emphasising on recharge.



FWIW I don't drink coffee, but wouldn't Starbucks' coffee-like products form the basis of a Taunt set with another psi damage proc?

I see the P2W has set up shop turning off XP.  😉

Actually, once you've accepted the parallel, you can't help noticing things like Pet supplies and stores for the ice-powered types.



Care to take bets on how long it will be before someone grabs the name "Laser Bounce"?
