Medical Arachnids are broken unless you have a mod that fixes it. The one you get in exchange for the camera works, but if you try making one nothing happens.
The Gods quest worries me a bit, though. I used to rely on Virgil to reanimate me.
I'm puzzled, the only reason for relying on Dipstick is the final 'sacrifice' and it's totally unnecessary in my experience as you revive automatically.
Assuming we're talking about the potion you create after the ruins, the answer is yes, it is permanent.
The schematic for the shield are, IIRC, random merchandise in the tech shop.
The Tesla Rod
shouldn't b e underestimated, the best gun of course is Droch's Warbringer.
Chemistry is also very good for such things as Paralyzers, very useful when fighting Barbies, you can't dodge if you're paralyzed!
