I have a Fallout 76 question. I started playing last night and first off, I have no idea why everyone was complaining about how bad it is. I think the game is great and although it's a little bit different from previous fallout games, I played for 5 hours straight.
Anyway, I transferred some items in a Foot Locker and a dresser but when I loaded up a game again today, they were gone. I'm pretty positive I'm in the right spot where I left them. Did I just lose all of those items? Does the game only keep track of items stored as long as you don't exit or turn the system off?
How in the world do I upgrade my lockpick skills? I read some new thing about perk cards but are those just random when upgrading?
Also, I got addicted to alcohol. In previous games, I could just easily get cured from a doctor or an aid by haven't found anything yet. I did run into a random Dr in the Wasteland but I was not given any prompt to ask her to cure me.
It's a multiplayer game so world containers don't belong to you and aren't safe for storage. You need to put your crap in the blue stash box containers that you can build at your camp or you can find outside of train stations. It'll show how much weight out of your total stash 800 is available.
First lockpick skill is available at level 5. Leveling and perk selection is super confusing at first, you can unlock perk pack with 5 random cards, but you can also select one special to increase and manually choose one perk per level up (chosen perk can be from a different special than the selected special you chose just read all the on screen button options).
Don't drink so much you damn alcoholic.
