Interesting that the wording about attaching the Jade Hand specifies "paying all costs". Are the rules for Equip changing again?

No, if you look closely it says the 4g right next to the chi bonus the item provides. I figure that's what it means.

I saw it. What I mean is that the Equip procedure normally requires the payment as part of the activity that is Equipping the attachment. They decided to specifically call it out on Yakamo and Hitomi, which leads me to wonder if there's an impending change.

6 HR. Why. Also shouldn't the Jade Hand have just been an invest?

Kakita_Shiro - you're wondering about the fact that they're calling it out specifically right? IE just by invoking Equip, they would under the current rules inherently have to pay all costs?

There are reasons for the cost on jade hand, its a thing you'll see more of. And I still don't understand why his HR is a thing to complain about. I end most of my games 15+ honor, barring dishonor. Granted he won't work as good in a pure kuni deck due to their overall low PH, but crab have a lot of decent PH guys.

Right, but instead of doing it as an equip after entry, they could have templated it as "invest 4: attach a 4GC etc etc to hida yakamo". I defer though if there's more stuff coming down the pipe affecting equips.

There's several things I don't like about yak CW but I object to the HR specifically because with his cost it makes him and the deck pretty inflexible, like kamoko CW does. If I see him late then he's a bomb, but he's really hard to get out early or even mid (and it's even worse with a -1SFH sensei). And jade hand is a lot easier to play around than obsidian hand, although the statting and unbreakableness are pretty good.

I think that is for the Jade Works, if you reduce the gold cost cant "paying all cost", I think
