While Cass is a companion, she and the player gain Damage Threshold when they drink Whiskey. Additionally, the player does not suffer intelligence loss from consuming alcohol and ignores the negative effects of alcohol addiction.”
The Whiskey Rose perk allows the player to consume alcoholic beverages without suffering any negative effects, including negative effects due to addiction. Additionally, consuming whiskey will raise the player's DT by 2 to 6 points and consuming wasteland tequila will raise the player's DT by 3 to 9 points, all based on the player's Survival skill.
- This perk does not remove the possibility of becoming addicted to alcohol, but merely eliminates the negative effects from alcohol addiction. The duration of the addiction remains unchanged. Losing Cass as a companion will cause negative effects to be applied if the player is currently suffering from alcohol addiction.
- Consuming irradiated whiskey or Dixon's whiskey does not provide an increase in DT while this perk is active.
- Despite the fact that large wasteland tequila is very similar to wasteland tequila, it does not get a special DT bonus from this perk, though it naturally has a DT bonus of 2 to 6.
- The DT bonuses from all related liquor (whiskey, large wasteland tequila, and wasteland tequila) are stackable, and can provide anywhere from 7 to 21 extra DT when consumed all at once.
Behind the scenesEdit
The original idea for this perk was that you could carry more water items, along with receiving a healing bonus from its consumption. This was then changed to become more valuable as a companion game mechanic, and to also reinforce Cass's hard-drinking personality.
