Well then!
...say, do you have any coffee recommendations? I was trying to buy some the other day but had no idea what really was what, i'm just used to the two or three kinds I get at school which have their own names from the places.
So, just wondering what a real world drinker has to say.

Hmm... aight. Whatever I have now is pretty good, forget the name.

Oh, it's alright. I was just asking your opinion of energy runes vs energy regen runes. It seems like the regen would be much nicer both early and late game, but even then I'm not sure I could sacrifice those slots for energy when they'd be much better served with armor/MR/damage etc.

Drinking coffee that you can't identify. This is one thing I've never really understood about coffee drinkers. I'm not saying it's a bad thing, it's probably better not to be so picky, but I think most coffee drinkers couldn't really tell the difference between one roast or the other for their first few cups. Me, I started with tea, and I know instantly what passes my lips and I can usually name ingredients. But with coffee, it either doesn't make a difference, or people just don't care, because the average dude will drink what you hand him as long as it's sweet and/or creamy enough and it'll wake him up.

Well I suppose it's more just the names they give them, like "house blend" and stuff. What I usually get I think is called Sumatra, though I dont think i'm refined enough to know the differences in bean types too much.
Admittedly it's mostly for the waking up, not the taste, but the taste has grown on me and I do like it.
...also the fact of the two places I go, one of them is kind of "hipster" I guess is all I can call it, and they rotate coffees nearly every day and I know none of them so it's hard to keep that constant.

You mentioned Lee though. He's one of those energy champions who would benefit the least from energy regen runes because of the passive... which I hope you're using to good extent? Energy storage... That's just quints and blues, so yeah, you'd be giving up some really useful slots for not that much extra energy - with quints being the most powerful and versatile of all runes (I don't know what you actually want to do with him so I can't really recommend anything specific here) and blues being great for MR which is useful always.

That's what I mean. Maybe it's just like, there are fewer kinds of coffee, just more ways to make it, but in some cases certain breeds of coffee are indistinguishable from others when they're brewed the same way. Some people can tell I'm sure, just like I could probably tell you from what reigon a certain flavor of chai came from, but it largely makes no difference.

Sweet and/or creamy enough. "None" is still technically an amount, so no cream or sugar is enough for you and me. :P

Of that I'm certain. Like I said, the process makes more of a difference than the bean itself.

Kind of. I know how to, but it isn't always easy to. I was thinking more about Shen and Akali, really more the latter than the former. I do occasionally run out on Shen if I'm really going at it, but maybe it's worth it to buy a few energy regen runes on Akali until I actually figure out how to play her?

Just... ugh. Creamer or sugar just makes coffee taste horrible. I'd sooner bleed out the person who handed me a creamed up cup of coffee, dissolve a caffeine pill in the mug of their blood, and drink that, than have some of the absolutely horrendous creamers people use.

Ah, alright, my bad.
But yeah, i'm sure there are differences I just dont know them.
...besides flavored coffees, of course, those are obvious.

I only add milk when i'm rushing and don't want to wait for it to cool nor want to scald my esophagus. Otherwise black.
I'm a disappointment :c

Well, if you're really thinking about it, I personally wouldn't even consider using up quints on it - but these scaling regen blues could be interesting? At level 18 they'd give you a total of around 5 extra energy every second without considering the passive, which is +50% and pretty substantial. Still, I dunno. The energy bars top off pretty quick and after that the extra regen is wasted, whereas in a quick fight you'd be all about burst starting with 200/200 energy and this probably wouldn't really matter so much (especially since by the time teamfights start your abilities will cost so much less), so the +50% regen at level 18 is pretty deceptive (regen in general being about supporting sustained actions over a long term, which is the polar opposite of burst). That's Akali at any rate, I've never actually played Shen.

Anyway... might work, I guess? I'd say try it if you want, but these are ridiculously expensive runes, heh.

Okay, now, I have to make a distinction, creamer, like, stuff engineered and created specifically for the purpose of putting it in coffee and making it creamier, is a sin against coffee and should be punishable by flogging. The powdered kind is nothing short of high treason.

However, adding a bit of Bailey's or something similar is a wonderful addition, as long as you're not relying on said coffee to be woken up, or intend to drive soon.

See above. Creamy coffee isn't bad unless it's a cappuccino or some kind of dessert drink. But I do that with my tea, too, so it's not like I can judge.

That's what I was thinking. Quints are just too valuable and too expensive to waste on something like that, but maybe my yellows if I didn't need the armor as much or blues if I didn't want MR. The idea, I think, is that you can do smaller bursts, more often. Rather than launching every ability you have at once, spreading the damage out like surgery. I've noticed it can be really effective, lowering people's expectations and guard until their screen goes gray and they don't know what happened.

It might happen after I spend about 10k on health runes, if it happens.

Same reason we like Scotch. It's not about flavor, it's about kicking our own teeth in with something strong, hot, and angry. It's... a sort of masochism, really.

But then, some black coffees aren't that bitter and have a lot of nice flavor. Just nothing you'd find in the grocery store.

Same reason I like really dark chocolate I guess.
Also I dunno, the warmth of it. It's not a drink, it's a hug for my organs <3

True enough. And yeah, I made the switch quickly to saying "milk" because I dont do creamers, it just doesnt work. A little milk usually isnt too bad.

Tea is nice no matter what basically, unless you overload it with stuff.

I will say that some of the doctored-up coffees can be pleasant, but I'd never rely on it for alertness. That's more like a hot milkshake to me. But if I drink coffee, I crave that bitterness. Couldn't tell you why, though.

>nice no matter what
Unless you get restaurant sweet tea, which is basically sweetened, sifted mud. I'm surely a tea snob, but the grog these people are drinking in common restaurants isn't tea.

Well, that and if you place the regen on three blues then at level 9 you'll have the same extra regen as you would from the quints... and you'll still have 6 more blues to work with. The blues are just so much more efficient they are actually just as good at it rune-for-rune as quints, so using the quints would be a waste.

Yellows on the other hand are almost 2.5 times less effective as blues. Same exact situation as with quints. You could use all yellows... or you could use 4 blues and still be ahead and have 5 more empty slots to work with. The caveat being, of course, that blues come only as scaling regen... but if you use all blues then at level 4 you'll already be getting as much as if you'd have used all yellows, flat, and it will only go up from there.

Well, like I said... maybe. It's a nice idea to try, and it could work, it's just so expensive I can't really endorse it as I've not actually tried it myself, heh.

Talking of which, I got some really nice Rooibos Chai from Teavana. It's very earthy, and has more Rooibos influence, so it makes all the teas that I mix with it pleasantly dark and bitter.

The best rooibos tea I've ever tasted was [url
2447021D899/#The-Tea-Party]this stuff[/url], and I really need to treat myself to more of it. It tasted like... It tasted like Earth is supposed to taste. Like if you sat down to tea with Mother Nature, this is what she'd serve. At first I didn't like it because it was so strong, but it grew on me and now I crave it.

I mean, I'm all for some toothache-sweet tea, but when there's more sugar in your 'tea' than tea oil itself... That, and they usually use Lipton, which is the world tea equivalent of five-dollar a bottle vodka - you're better off just drinking rubbing alcohol.
