The Whiskey Rose perk allows the Courier to consume alcoholic beverages without suffering any negative effects, including penalties due to addiction. Additionally, consuming whiskey will raise the their DT by 2 to 6 points and consuming wasteland tequila will raise it DT by 3 to 9 points, all based on the Courier's Survival skill.
- This perk does not remove the possibility of gaining alcohol addiction, but merely negates its penalties. The duration of the addiction remains unchanged. Losing Cass as a companion will apply the penalties if the Courier 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 it would allow carrying 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. Which is reflected in her use of the perk. If whiskey is added to her inventory.
