Alcohol

Alcohol is a term used to refer to drinks that have the effect of getting you drunk. There are many varieties of alcoholic drinks, and several different strengths. Alcoholic drinks are consumable items that can be procured either through adventuring or a vendor. Unlike other drinks, most alcohol does not restore mana (although there are some exceptions). However, alcohol shares a global cooldown with all other drinks. Some alcoholic drinks also grant benefits such as Well Fed. For the most part, alcohol is used purely for recreation (as in real life). If you drink enough alcohol, you will first become "tipsy", then "drunk", and finally "completely smashed"; after enough alcohol, you will vomit. As you continue to drink, other effects will set in to simulate real life drunkenness. While there are many common alcohols, there are also a number of exotic drinks to be had — which this list tries to compile.

Effects

Main article: Drunk
Blurred vision from drinking

As of Patch 2.3, when you become tipsy, drunk, or completely smashed, the game will announce what you were drinking at the time.

The effects of alcohol are generally mild and don't set in early, though effects like blurred vision depend heavily on what your computer's video quality. \At first, you will become tipsy. For the most part, being tipsy will not affect you much. Slight vision blurring or unintentional turning may occur. Continuing to drink while tipsy will make you drunk.

As of Patch 4.0.1, the video effects simulating blurred vision can be turned off by adding SET ffxGlow "0" to your WTF>Config.wtf file.


See tipsy for more information.

Being drunk will cause heavier vision blurring and more movement effects, and the swaying can cause significant loss of course if running or riding (please do not drink and ride — it's not worth it). In addition to the tipsy effects, when you try to talk, the letter "s" will become "sh" and occasionally "...hic!" will be added to the end of your chat line. In Patch 1.6, however, words that became profane through this (such as "sit") no longer had the "s" to "sh" change applied. You might, for instance, say "this is an example" and it will appear as though you said "thish ish an example...hic!". Drunkenness also simulates delusions of grandeur, aggressiveness, and/or confidence by making the level on mobs or flagged enemies appear five levels lower, though it doesn't actually modify the mob's stats and you still receive the same amount of experience.


See drunk for more information.

Being completely smashed doesn't seem to have any new effects, but some, such as screen blurring or turning, are said to appear to worsen. After drinking enough alcohol at smashed the character will cast Drunken Vomit, stunning the character and spewing a green stream of vomit onto the ground.

This table charts the quantity of each type of alcohol that must be consumed to reach each level of inebriation.

Potency Tipsy Drunk Smashed Drunken Vomit
Fairly weak 1 10 18 ?

Strong 1 3 5 ?
Extremely Potent 1 2 3 ?

List of Alcohol

This section will attempt to list all types of alcohol, but because they are so numerous, it is highly likely more exotic kinds will be missed. All prices are base price, and thus do not factor in discounts.
