Drinking

From HoboWars

Jump to: navigation, search

Drinking is an activity that provides a variety of benefits, such as various stat gains, status effects, access to drunken battle techniques known as skills, and more.

Drinking is primarily unlocked near the beginning of the Canbodia Adventures. However, Facebook HoboWars and HoboArena allow early access to drinks via CSP, City Pawn, and Dumpster Diving at the Corner 7/11.

Your Liver and You

When drinking, it is important to keep an eye on your current Blood Alcohol Content (BAC). At any point, you can view your current BAC in your home. Your maximum blood alcohol content is 0.2, plus 0.01 for every 25 drinking stats. Should you go over your maximum BAC, you will LOSE drinking stat instead of gaining it; thus, if you were to drink something giving 0.04 BAC while you had 0.17 BAC or more with a .20 tolerance, you would lose drinking stat and pass out (losing all your life).

At each Awake gain interval (HoboWars 1 & 2 : 10 / 15 mins; Facebook : 10 / 5 mins) your BAC will drop by 0.01.

There's a Time and a Place for Everything

Booze is unlocked for consumption by completing the opening mission of the third adventure set. Each mission completed unlocks at least one more beverage (or so it seems). The exception being a single Ruiner's Rum which is obtained during your journey in the Second City Adventures.

On Facebook HoboWars and HoboArena give early access to drinks through CSP, City Pawn, and Dumpster Diving at the Corner 7/11.

Not Just For College Students

Why should you train your drinking stat, you might wonder? Stop wondering; it is pretty obvious. Beyond being a nifty new stat that you will watch rise in awe, drinking some of the higher ranks drinks provide semi-insignificant increases to your fighting stats. Benefits of drinking also include the ability to use skills.

Stat gain from drinking is as follows:

(Base Stat Gain + Boozaholic Drinking Tattoo Bonus (0.025)) × (1 + Drinking Stat / 100) × (1 + Total King's Cup Bonus / 10)

Requirements for Drinking Stat gain

Drink Stat King's Cup Bonus
0-500
500-600 Pass Level 0+
600-700 Pass Level 1+
700-800 Pass Level 2+
800-900 Pass Level 3+
900-1,000 Pass Level 4+
1,000-1,100 Pass Level 5+
1,100-1,200 Pass Level 6+
1,200+ Pass Level 7+

As you can see, you do not need to gain any bonus points from the King's Cup to get your drink stat up to 500, though each bonus level you successfully pass gives you (bonus level X 0.01) extra drink stat when you take that drink.

Drinking from your backpack without using the King's Cup will allow you to get to max drink stat of 500. If you have the King's Kiddie Cup, you can get to a drink stat of 600 when drinking out of your backpack.

Liquor: It Costs Too Much and Ruins Families

The thriving liquor industry in the Second City is a monument to the success of hobos everywhere. Unfortunately, that being said, it is an expensive hobby. As we have defined the cost of a Crudweiser, and, by association, all other drinks, we can now make long term estimations of the cost of training your drinking stat. As a result of this, your drinking experience may be hampered by your lack of financial freedom. But hey, everything has it's price.

There are several schools of thought regarding drinking training:

  • Slow and Steady: Use the low level alcohols (currently, this is Crudweiser, but the future of drinking may change that). Takes longer, but costs significantly less.
  • Ball to the Wall: Use the best of the best. In terms of early drinking, this would appear to be Rank 2 alcohols (Goonsack and Albino Ale, 4 times the cost, twice as fast). In terms of several days after that, it would appear to be the Rainbow Road (20 times the cost, slightly less than 5 times as fast). In today's world, this is the Centrifuge, a mixed drink.
  • I Just Don't Care: Not training it. Teetotling lameasses. This opinion exists because drinking didn't seem to provide any benefit. Thankfully, they were wrong.

As a note, increasing your drinking stat seems to increase the pitiful fighting gains from alcohol. Not by much. As a result of this, some of the values for the liquor may be off by several points; while we have attempted to compensate for this, feel free to inform a Wiki Editor if you can confirm any details.

I Drink And I Smash Because I Love

Contrary to the opinions of the teetotling lameasses indicated in the last section, there does seem to be a benefit to drinking. Not the stat, but actually being drunk. It seems, similar to rats' sprint ability, to grant critical hits or dodges from time to time. While this might not seem like a huge benefit, bonuses should always be welcomed.

Add that to skill firings, and you have a rooting, tooting good time.

What's On Tap?

  • All prices are relative to the cost of your Crudweiser, the basic drink. The formulas are as follows:
  • Crudweiser Price (CW) = 257.5 + (Hobo Level * 2.5)
  • These figures are then rounded down to the next integer.
  • All stat gains (or losses) increase in magnitude as your drinking increases.
  • The gains from drinks are slightly different over on HoboArena.

Drinks that are only present in Facebook HoboWars and HoboArena are marked with a dark gray background.
