Cant seem to find this. I'm thinking a bowed character's attachments don't count in battle, even if they are unbowed.
I believe if the character is ready, the attachment counts even if the attachment is bowed.
Does this sound right?
If you're asking about attachments that directly give bonuses to their character's skill, their status doesn't matter, as the stat bonuses they give are to the character. It's whether the character is bowed or not that matters during conflict resolution.
