Hull Plating

This skill reduces the damage taken from all incoming sources of damage by providing you with Damage Resistance Rating. There are two separate skills that perform this duty:

  • Energized Hull Plating (Energy Resistance Rating) and
  • Ablative Hull Plating (Kinetic Resistance Rating).

Each point of these skills increases the applicable Resistance Rating by +0.25

Damage Resistance Rating may only reduce incoming damage by up to 75% max, and each point of Resistance Rating offers less of a damage decrease the closer you get to this value.

Total Skill Bonus

  • +60 Energized Hull Plating and Ablative Hull Plating Energy and Kinetic Damage Resistance Rating = +15
  • +40 Energized Hull Plating = +10
  • +40 Ablative Hull Plating = +10
