Allot of arty is about preference. I prefer human arty over warforgered. If you take the Construct Essence feat as a human arty you become a cyborg. You can use both heal and repair spells on yourself. However, there are pros and cons to this.
Prerequisite: Artificer 3, Non-warforged race
You are on the path to becoming a self-forged, augmenting yourself by replacing some of your weak flesh. You are still considered your original race (at this time), gaining 50% healing from Repair spells but suffering a -25% penalty to positive energy healing. In addition, you now take 50% damage from rust effects.
