[Core] Enhanced Articulation


Wu Jen:
Is it supposed to give you +1 Agi? It just seems way too cheap for 0.2 essence and 30,000.

edit: And slightly used? Enhanced Articulation for 0.22 essence and 15,000?

If so it has to be one of the best investments you can make at Ess/Nuyen per Augmented point cost.

Yep, a +1 bump.... With no levels, so there's no Enhanced Articulation +2, +3, etc.

Michael Chandra:
Because it doesn't stack with other ware. So it's a single +1 Agility, but won't stack with Muscle Toner or Muscle Replacement. Of course it's a bit silly that it's cheaper than Muscle Toner 1, while it gives a better benefit, but it's only worth it if you only got for +1 Agi.

As for slightly used: That's where the Body Shop rule change comes in, where Used ware is replaced and now suddenly that 50% nuyen discount also comes at the risk of cancer and Bad Luck.

Yeah, Used grade augments aren't as great as they used to be before Body Shop.  Bad Luck, easy to jam, easy to break - buyer beware! 
All my characters nowadays have Bad Luck and Silver Lining qualities because glitches are fun, so that softens the harshness of the added penalty.  But I think most players will be (should be?) scared off by the negatives.

Bioware also can't benefit from Cyberware Overdrive, which is a great mechanic that gives chrome an edge.
