This effect doesn't seem to have any effect other than changing generic combat text to LOLCatisms. TomTomson 00:11, 1 December 2007 (CST)

It seems to do funny things for item drops, too. I'm getting messages like INVISIBLE ANTIQUE GREAVES in bold text where an item drop would be, but there are no new pairs of greaves in my inventory after the combat. --Flargen 01:37, 1 December 2007 (CST)

  • I think it might do that when you don't get the item. Or something to that effect. --TechSmurf 01:42, 1 December 2007 (CST)
    • Well, I certainly didn't have the items after the effect finally wore off. But there were times when I wouldn't get certain items from the monster, either in INVISIBLE form or from pickpocket. --Flargen 01:44, 1 December 2007 (CST)
      • It probably wouldn't trigger for every item you don't get-- that'd just be overwhelming and spoiler-y. From what I've heard, there's a different message for when you do get an item. --TechSmurf 01:46, 1 December 2007 (CST)
        • There might still be some spoilery use. I haven't really studied it, but I thought there was controversy, at least for a while, about what drops the 17-ball in the gallery. If it's an ultra-rare drop from a normal monster, maybe it will occasionally "drop" an INVISIBLE 17-BALL, verifying that idea. --RandomPrecision 23:08, 1 December 2007 (CST)
          • The only monster I did not get invisible messages on failed to drop anything, and the invisibles definitely were not in inventory afterward.--Foggy 09:54, 2 December 2007 (CST)

I've seen the folowing so far:

  • You win the fight! -> Is it can be wins tiem now plees?
  • You gain X Meat. -> You gets X Meets.
  • You acquire an item: -> O hai, I made dis for you:
  • You gain X Muscle -> You can has X muskewlairtees.
  • You gain X Mysticality -> You can has X mistikkaltees.
  • You gain X Moxie -> You can has X mawksees.

Given the description of this effect (and the descriptions of the other effects), I suspect this is intended to give some sort of Moxie boost (where Neuromancy would boost Mysticality and Cybernetic Muscles would improve Muscle). Perhaps increasing Moxie substat gains? Or perhaps Jick forgot to finish them... --Quietust (t|c) 15:45, 2 December 2007 (CST)

  • That's what I think we were all hoping for initially. At the least, right now it doesn't affect your buffed stats in any way. I have not tried to check if it is giving any substat gains. That's a bit troublesome in the middle of a HC run, during which you've mostly been using the pressie as a sombrero. Perhaps once I free the King in a few days, if the matter doesn't seem to be resolved yet. The easy way to test this should be at a low-level area like dire bunnies, where stat gains are predictable and low variance. I would kind of hope they have (or are intended to have) at least some minimal positive effect. So here's hoping that it's either substat gains or a failure to properly implement. --Flargen 00:36, 3 December 2007 (CST)
    • This morning I'm starting to see a stat boost for this & the other P.R.E.S.S.I.E. buffs. Mox went from 185(75) to 192(75), which would be +10% rounded down. Anyone else seeing this?--Dipsy 06:21, 3 December 2007 (CST)
      • Yep, just got the same result. I'm changing the main page accordingly --Snowcat 10:23, 3 December 2007 (CST)

In Addition to the other effects, this is clearly the most amusing effect in the game.

I just ate a rat appendix chow mein while under Can Has Cyborger, and the eating text was simply "Om nom nom nom." Now, I don't think the rat appendix chow mein's eating text has changed that drastically in the past month, but could someone else test this under more foods (different quality/fullness, etc)? "Om nom nom nom" is definitely a phrase used in lolcats from time to time. CaptainSpam 03:26, 17 December 2007 (CST)
