I found some pirate rum and used it like a potion. The screen got blurry for a bit but then everything was normal. Is there any point to alcohol in this game other than just to make your screen blurry for a couple seconds?

Pirate Rum is completely useless, it just blurs your screen for a while.

Pirate Rum effects

However, the other alcoholic drinks (Wines) in the game do have a use; they're potent HP/MP potions. They're dropped by enemies in Oryx's Wine Cellar though, so they're rare and hard to get.

Do the others all have the same blur effect? – Ben Brocka Apr 5 '12 at 17:54
other alcoholic drinks in the game do have a use; they're potent HP/MP potions just like real life :) – l I Apr 5 '12 at 17:54
@BenBrocka I don't think so, but I can't be sure. I've never been in the Wine Cellar, its incantation is ridiculously rare. – a cat Apr 5 '12 at 17:57
