  • As of patch patch 1.2, Live & Love still has no effect on Cait, Curie, Dogmeat, MacCready, or Preston Garvey. The player still gains bonuses that apply, but these companions do not.
  • The bonus experience from rank 8 does not apply when traveling with Dogmeat.
  • Rank 2 and rank 9 do not work unless the player also has rank 3.
  • Ranks 2 and 9 do not stack. Robotic companions will still only receive +5% damage.
  • Rank 5 conflicts with the third rank of Party Boy/Party Girl, only receiving +3 Luck while under the effects of alcohol. Needs testing of perk order, whether to avoid being intoxicated as you pick up the magazine, and whether it's fixed in patch 1.3.
