You're not stupid! Just... different.

With the Idiot Savant perk, you'll randomly receive XP from completing any action. The lower your Intelligence, the higher the chance.

Idiot Savant is a perk in Fallout 4.

Effects[edit | edit source]

With the first rank of Idiot Savant, you randomly acquire a x3 experience boost from any action. The lower your intelligence, the higher the chance for a boost. The second rank boosts this bonus to x5 experience, and the third rank gives you x3 experience for a short time after randomly gaining bonus experience.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • A Savant is typically an autistic person, but can also arise in people that have acquired a mental disorder or have damaged their central nervous system. However, since the perk states "You're not stupid! Just... different" and increases the chance of a x3 boost with lower intelligence, it can be inferred that this perk makes you autistic.
  • The chance of activation for the single extra XP is (12-INT)% per event, to a minimum of 1%.
  • Without this perk, XP boost from INT ranges from 1.03 to 1.30. At rank 1, the long-term XP boost ranges from 1.257 (at INT 1) to 1.352 (at INT 10). At rank 2, the long-term XP boost ranges from 1.4832 (at INT 1) to 1.404 (at INT 10).
