Dialogue[edit | edit source]
|SPECIAL Stat||Cost||Recovery Time||Description||PC Reaction (After Surgery)|
|Strength||2,000 bottle caps||3 Weeks (21 days)||"That's easy to do but there's a long recovery time. It only costs 2000 scripts but takes 3 weeks to heal."||You can already tell the difference.|
|Perception||4,000 bottle caps||1 Week (7 days)||"Now that's a difficult operation. It costs 4000 scripts, but the recovery from this operation is only a week."||All of your senses feel much sharper.|
|Endurance||3,000 bottle caps||1 Week (7 days)||"This one's not that difficult. It takes about a week and will cost 3000 scripts."||You feel great!|
|Intelligence||6,000 (3000 if INT < 4) bottle caps||3 Weeks (21 days)||"This is the most complex and dangerous! It'll take 3 weeks and costs 6000 scripts."||It's as if the pathways of your thoughts have direct links to everywhere in your head and your memories are much crisper.|
|Agility||5,000 bottle caps||3 Weeks (21 days)||"This isn't that tough of an operation but it is very costly and time consuming. It will take 3 weeks and cost 5000 scripts."||You flex your muscles and can feel the increased speed and control.|
Notes[edit | edit source]
- If one has an Intelligence of 3 or lower, they will get 50% off the Intelligence implant bringing it down to 3000 bottle caps. However, this does not prevent a low Intelligence Vault Dweller from taking Mentats, receiving the normal surgery first, and then receiving the surgery. Nor does it prevent a normal character from receiving both surgeries, by taking lots of Psycho, waiting for Mentat withdrawal, or its addiction for the second surgery
- One cannot have an implant operation if their SPECIAL stat is at max for the corresponding implant surgery.
- One cannot get an implant for their Charisma and Luck skills.
