During the game, you can pay a visit to a surgeon, where you may acquire new skills. The office is run by Jernaugh, who can be found in the north-west part of the Cliff's Edge district in Sagus Cliffs (M6.5). He is a specialist in engrafting implants. Each such procedure can unlock a new ability. Here are a few vital things you should know about this mechanic:
- Only the protagonist can get implants;
- Each implant has to be paid for - usually the price is around 100 shins;
- After the procedure, the protagonist will lose a couple of HP, so if you want to get a couple skills during one visit, you have to heal him up a little first. Otherwise, the protagonist may die on the surgeon's table, and nobody wants that;
- You can't learn the exact effects of a procedure until you pay for it, so here's a chart containing some useful info:
The Clawed Gauntlets
