I would love to see some more BOs have Efficiency. I agree with the argument that if non-Saurian/Leathan DOffs can be Efficient, why can't similarly raced BOs have the trait?

At the very least, I'd like to see the Efficient trait to some Aliens BOs.

Likewise, I'd vote for more Space Traits (Accurate, Elusive, etc.) appearing on BOs.

Not true. In the Attack Default Power Setting (or any other mix of 100, 50, 25, 25 power levels) each Efficient BO adds about +1.72 power to your system. Granted, that's spread +0.35 to you 50 setting and +0.70 to each of your 25 settings, but it's still there.


And while the UI rounds down, and doesn't display the fractions of power, they are reflected in the Cryptic math that affects your Abilities. Example: An Aux to SIF will heal more HP if you have 3 vs 2 BOs and are running with at Aux 70 or less. It's ain't much, but it is there.
