The name of this strikes me as being influenced by a running gag from Homestar Runner, though I could easily be wrong. Probably worth asking on a radio show. --Quietust (t|c) 16:44, 2 April 2008 (CDT)

Does this effect really nerf's people who has this? --Akmar 213 06:01, 3 April 2008 (CDT)

No effect on melee damage dealt by the player. Dealts a constant 58 damage barehanded against bunnies both with and without this effect.-QuantumNightmare 23:49, 4 April 2008 (CDT)

I'm guessing that the item drop message is something that it could have dropped, but didn't, really. The way to test this, of course, would be to fight something with a 100% drop, like, for example, the pinata that drops the pile of candy south of the border, and see if it says the message, is. If it does, then yeah, it affects item drops. --Jimfromtx 01:42, 5 April 2008 (CDT)

  • That won't work. Things with 100% drop rates are automatic drops, no matter what effects you have on. Although if you used +100% items and adventured in the beanbats, you'd have a 100% drop rate. Be interesting to see what happens if you adventure like that while nerf'd.--QuantumNightmare 19:41, 5 April 2008 (CDT)
    • Spent 139 turns fighting beanbats with +100% item drops, got 139 beans. Any effect on item drops is probably very small. --JiK4eva 16:26, 11 April 2008 (CDT)
      • Did you ever see the "but you're unable to pick it up because of the foam dart stuck to you" message?-QuantumNightmare 16:51, 11 April 2008 (CDT)
        • I never got this message, the item drops were exactly as if I hadn't had the effect. I still got the melee damage text. This is consistent with the theory that the text is added on an item that could drop, but didn't. --JiK4eva 22:56, 11 April 2008 (CDT)

My original melee damage testing was done barehanded, to eliminate variance. I just tested again with a witty rapier equipped (power 150), and received exactly as much damage as expected. So weapon power isn't reduced. It does look like this effect does nothing at all.--QuantumNightmare 01:32, 21 April 2008 (CDT)

Nerf'd and Cyborger

The current assumption is that the item drop message shows up for items that weren't going to drop. Since they seem to be doing the same thing, how does this interact with Cyborger's "INVISIBLE ITEM"? Bakapyrite 13:22, 12 June 2008 (CDT)
