New Character:
A New Survivor - Barmaid (Demi Bourbon) has joined the Manor. Obtain Season 8 Essence 1 S Costume - True Proof to unlock this Character for free (this Character cannot be used in Rank Matches, Duo Hunters Mode and Blackjack Mode currently);

  • [External Trait - Dovlin]: Carries a wine barrel around to mix Strong Dovlin. Strong Dovlin can be drank when the Barmaid or Teammates are injured, but they will become Tipsy and their Fear will be reduced. The Barmaid also carries a bottle of D.U.P.H.R.I.N. Drinking it will increase the drinker's Fear by half. However, the D.U.P.H.R.I.N's Hard Drinker effect will also increase the drinker's Movement Speed by 50% for 2 seconds, and causes the consumer to be Tipsy and reduces their Fear. D.U.P.H.R.I.N's stimulation is strong, so it can't be drank when the Barmaid is injured. Additionally, the D.U.P.H.R.I.N cannot be shared with Teammates. Increased Fear due to Mixing and Strong Dovlin is not considered an injury and therefore does not trigger Panic, Deteriorate, Hunter's Instinct and Cowardly effects. [As the Coordinator and The Mind's Eye are below the drinking age, they will not be able to drink the Barmaid's Strong Dovlin. Demi Bourbon never serves anyone under the drinking age]
  • [External Trait - Mixing]: Mixing drinks costs energy. After mixing, the cost energy will immediately increase the Barmaid's Fear by half. However, the Barmaid will also gain 1 bottle of Strong Dovlin and become Tipsy, thus decreasing Fear. The maximum number for stored Dovlin is 1 bottle. Due to limited ingredients, only 2 bottles can be mixed in a single game. The D.U.P.H.R.I.N cannot be mixed in the Manor. The Barmaid is unable to mix when injured.
  • [External Trait - Tipsy]: Mixing or drinking the alcohol will put Survivors in a Tipsy state, and after it ends, Survivor's Fear will be decreased by half immediately. Mixing will cause Survivors to be Tipsy for 8 seconds. Drinking Strong Dovlin will cause Survivors to be Tipsy for 21 seconds. Consuming D.U.P.H.R.I.N will cause the Barmaid to be Tipsy for 8 seconds. However, if Survivors are hit when Tipsy, the effects will be immediately removed.
  • [External Trait - Hangover]: Whenever the Barmaid or other Survivors become Tipsy, their decoding speed will be decreased by 8% and the effects can be stacked up to 2 times.
