For items with upgrades, you take the availability of the rarest component, and then add -5 to the Acquisition Roll for each added component.
Where is that ruling found? I have been looking for it and can't seem to find it.
Rogue Trader Core Rulebook, pg. 271, right-hand column, "Combining Acquisitions".
You definately don't get Scale bonus on Unique or Near Unique items (page 276, uppper right corner), and I think the wording on Lathe Wrought makes it seem that it carries all the benefits of Best Craftsmanship ("inherently Best Craftsmanship") that it would be counted as included in the Availability of the upgrade, so my instinct is -55.
Well, completely missed that. Thanks a lot for the point in the right direction. Would definitely makes any Lathe-Wrought armour -55. Yikes.
I have missed the rule that "if the quality is dictated in the text then don't apply any quality modifier". Can you point me to this?
I see the combined acquisition rule. But this would make Lathe Wrought Armour an eye-watering -55 as far as I can see, but then it is awesome…
You know, I can't for the life of me find it. I'm sure of it, though, or at least it's been discussed before.
I sent a question to Customer Support just to make sure. I'll post here once I get a reply.
