Full Version: Cyberware and Bioware essence costs

There is no cyberware/bioware discount.

In a fix that SR4A should've done, all implants use Essence now. No complex formulas or anything, bioware and cyberware both cost Essence period. The Essence costs for bioware, however, are far lower than they are for cyberware. Example: Bone Lacing is about .5 per level, while Bone Density is .3 per level. However, Lacing gives you an Armor bonus which Density does not.

Cyberware now costs about twice as much nuyen, and bioware about 3 times as much.

There are discounts as well. Bone Density Augmentation is a steal for what it does.

Yes, but I still went with Bone Lacing for my character. Until we get FFBA, it's one of the few ways to boost Armor without getting hit by armor stacking penalties. And with APDS available at chargen, I want every point of Armor I can get.
