Terminology[edit]

  • Active Tanking - Utilizes components which require capacitor to run. Active tanking relies heavily on the amount of capacitor and capacitor recharge the user has.
  • Buffer- A simple build up of hitpoints used to absorb damage.
  • Damage Per Second (DPS) - The amount of damage a ship can do per second, taking all types of weapons a ship has into consideration.
  • Effective hitpoints - The total amount of hitpoints your ship has, including mitigation due to resistances, buffer, passive, and active devices.
  • Efficiency - Often a number; assigned by Eve Fitting Tool (EFT) to represent how effective your tank is in total
  • Hitpoints - The amount of armor, shield, and hull a ship has.
  • Nano (Speed) - speed tanked ships. They are commonly called nano due to one of the pieces of equipment used, the Nanofiber Internal Structure.
  • Omni - A mix of all four resistances.
  • Passive tanking - Utilizes modules that use no capacitor and therefore can be run forever.
  • Resistance - Protection from a specific damage type (EM, explosive, kinetic, thermal)
  • Tank - A ship's defenses, including modules, in general
  • Tanking - The ability to withstand damage

Tanking Overview[edit]

Shield[edit]

Shields are the first line of defense on all starships. Every ship has shields, even though some are not meant to use shields as their primary form of defense. In general, Caldari ships are renown for their shield bonuses and abilities, while Amarr and Gallente specialize in armor tanking. Minmatar have ships that specialize in one, the other, or both. Shields generally have a high resistance to explosive damage, but have a rather large weakness to EM damage. Amarr ships tend to be most effective against shield tankers because of the high EM damage in energy turrets.

Armor[edit]

Armor plating is the second line of defense on all starships. As with shields, every ship has armor plating, even though some ships may not primarily tank with them. As stated above, Amarr and Gallente ships specialize in armor tanking, with Minmatar having ships that specialize either way. Armor plating has a high resistance to EM damage, while having a large weakness to explosive. Missile ships are the most effective against armor tankers due to the ability to pick a pure damage type to counteract whatever tank the enemy may have.

Hull[edit]

The ship hull is the absolute last line of defense on any starship. The hull offers no resistance to any damage and is easily the weakest part of the ship. There are modules made for tanking with the hull, but hull tanking is not recommended for any player due to lack of resistance and inadequacy of repair modules. Hull tanking is known as a 'surprise fit' because most players expect to cut through a ship hull in no time. Adding hull defenses can take players by surprise, but most times, will not end well for the user.

Range[edit]

Range can be a great defense for a player to use. If your ship allows you to hit from a great distance, range becomes your main defense due to modules being geared more for distance combat. Range is often considered the best form of defense simply because your enemy will most likely not reach you in time to do damage. However, range has a major drawback: minimized damage. At long ranges, most ships tend to do 50% or less damage, due to module and ammunition restrictions.

Speed[edit]

Speed is a viable form of tanking for smaller ship types. Small ships equipped with speed modules, if fast enough, can mitigate 90%+ of the damage being dealt to them. The ability to fly fast allows you to outrun tracking speed of turrets and the speed of missiles in general. One should be cautious when speed tanking because if the enemy has a stasis webifier equipped, you can easily be left defenseless.

Buffer[edit]

Buffer tanking is a technique whereby a user focuses on increasing the amount of shield, armor, or hull they have as to absorb damage, rather than mitigate it. For example, an armor buffer tanked battleship may have multiple armor plates equipped to raise their amount of armor in order to absorb incoming shots. Buffer tanking is commonly used to survive high damage situations, such as a Titan Doomsday Device.

Damage Types Overview[edit]

There are four damage types: Electromagnetic, Thermal, Kinetic, and Explosive. EM does the most damage to shields, Explosive does the most damage to armor. Thermal does moderate damage to both, but more against shields. Kinetic is the same, but does more damage to armor. See the table below for a slightly better explanation:

More armor damage More shield damage
Explosive Kinetic Thermal EM

More information on damage types can be found at Damage types.

Defense Module Overheating[edit]

Overheating a defensive module is essentially to take that module beyond its normal capability to provide extra bonuses. Doing so does damage your module at the same time, but this damage can be mitigated by using Nanite Repair Paste. Overheating requires basic skill in Thermodynamics. You can read more about heat damage at Heat (Game mechanic). Each different module has a different bonus that you can gain from overheating it. There is also a heat damage amount and an HP amount assigned to the device. Every cycle of the device will cause the listed damage to the device until the device HP runs out, at which point the device will need to be repaired either at a station or using Nanite Repair Paste. Overheating a rack has many advantages, namely the ability to mitigate more damage and help you survive longer in order to defeat your enemy.

Shield Defenses[edit]

When shield tanking, you are provided with three different ways to tank: Actively, Passively, or using a Buffer. Active tanking utilizes components which require capacitor to run. Active tanking relies heavily on the amount of capacitor and capacitor recharge the user has. Passive tanking modules use no capacitor and therefore can be run forever.

Active Tanking[edit]

Shield Boosters[edit]

Shield boosters repair your shield with each activation cycle. Shield boosters are medium power slot devices. Shield boosters are available in five different sizes: Small, Medium, Large, Extra Large (X-Large), and Capiltal. The tables below lists available shield boosters in the game, broken up by size:

Passive Tanking[edit]

Energized Plating[edit]

Energized plating and resistance plating are essentially the same in that they provide a resistance boost to the resistance affected. However, energized plating requires higher skills, and therefore, provides a larger bonus to resistances. Resistance plating is more for new players who have yet to develop the skills to fully utilize energized plating. Below are tables for each type of energized plating:

Hull Repair Systems[edit]

Hull repair systems work the same way as armor repair systems do, except that they affect the structure hitpoints instead of armor. Hull repair systems are not recommended over armor or shield systems because of the low amount of hitpoints repaired and the long cycle time. Hull repairers come in three different sizes: Small, Medium, and Large. Below are tables with the different repair systems available:

Note: Only Meta 0-5 equipment listed. Please check the variations menu inside of the module page for a full listing of equipment.

Speed Defenses[edit]

Active Tanking[edit]

Afterburners[edit]

Afterburners provide a short speed boost, but add to the mass of a ship. Afterburners hold an advantage over MicroWarp Drives as they cannot be deactivated by any device and can be used in deadspace. Afterburners also use less capacitor than MicroWarp Drives. However, MicroWarp Drives do provide a much larger boost in speed. Afterburners come in three different sizes, based off of thrust amount (in millions of Newtons, or MN): 1MN (Frigate Size), 10MN (Cruiser Size), and 100MN (Battleship Size). Below are some examples of afterburners:

MicroWarp Drives[edit]

MicroWarp Drives, or MWDs, provide a short speed boost, but add to the mass of a ship. The speed boost is signifcant, but comes at a pretty fair cost. The ship's overall capacitor amount is reduced, the mass of the ship is increased, and the module itself uses a very large amount of capacitor. MicroWarp Drives come in three different sizes, based off of thrust amount (in millions of Newtons, or MN): 1MN (Frigate Size), 10MN (Cruiser Size), and 100MN (Battleship Size). Below is a listing of MWDs:
