Implants.png Attributes: Intelligence.pngMemory.png
Multiplier.png Multiplier: 2x
Isk.png Price: 120k ISK
Skill.png Prerequisites: Hull Upgrades IV
Notes.png Notes: This doesn't help active hardeners at all but can really help passive hardeners, which see some use in PvP fits. A PvP-focused armor-tanking pilot should train this skill and the three other 'X Armor Compensation' skills to III or IV in the medium-long term.



Skill.png Explosive Armor Compensation

5% bonus to explosive resistance per level for Armor Coatings and Energized Platings
Implants.png Attributes: Intelligence.pngMemory.png

Skill.png Hull Upgrades

Skill at maintaining your ship's armor and installing hull upgrades like expanded cargoholds and inertial stabilizers. Grants a 5% bonus to armor hit points per skill level.
Implants.png Attributes: Intelligence.pngMemory.png
Multiplier.png Multiplier: 2x
Isk.png Price: 60k ISK
Skill.png Prerequisites: Mechanics I
Skill.png I required for: Tech 1 and Faction Resistance Platings; 50/100mm Tech 1 and Faction Armor Plates; Tech 1 and Faction Damage Controls; Inertial Stabilizers I; Expanded Cargohold I; Nanofiber Internal Structure I; Overdrive Injector System I
Skill.png II required for: 200/400mm Tech 1 and Faction Armor Plates; Overdrive Injector System II; Expanded Cargohold II; Inertial Stabilizers II
Skill.png III required for: 800/1600mm Tech 1 and Faction Armor Plates; Tech 1 and Faction Armor Hardeners; Tech 1 and Faction Energized Platings; Reactive Armor Hardener; 50/100mm Tech 2 Armor Plates
Skill.png IV required for: 200mm Tech 2 Armor Plates; Tech 2 Resistance Platings; Damage Control II; 25000mm Tech 1 Armor Plates; Skill.png EM Armor Compensation; Skill.png Explosive Armor Compensation; Skill.png Kinetic Armor Compensation; Skill.png Thermal Armor Compensation
Skill.png V required for: 400/800/1600/25000mm Tech 2 Armor Plates; Tech 2 Armor Hardeners; Tech 2 Energized Platings; Skill.png Capital Repair Systems
Notes.png Notes: The raw armor hitpoints bonus from this skill is very useful. Level IV lets you use T2 Damage Controls (making this an essential train for any PvP fitting); level V lets you use T2 Energized Adaptive Nano Membranes, so to fit a full T2 armor tank you will probably need to train this to V. Which you should probably do anyway for the hitpoints bonus.



Skill.png Kinetic Armor Compensation

5% bonus to kinetic resistance per level for Armor Coatings and Energized Platings
Implants.png Attributes: Intelligence.pngMemory.png
Multiplier.png Multiplier: 2x
Isk.png Price: 120k ISK
Skill.png Prerequisites: Hull Upgrades IV
Notes.png Notes: This doesn't help active hardeners at all but can really help passive hardeners, which see some use in PvP fits. A PvP-focused armor-tanking pilot should train this skill and the three other 'X Armor Compensation' skills to III or IV in the medium-long term.



Skill.png Mechanics

Skill at maintaining the mechanical components and structural integrity of a spaceship. 5% bonus to structure hit points per skill level.
Implants.png Attributes: Intelligence.pngMemory.png
Multiplier.png Multiplier: 1x
Isk.png Price: 20k ISK
Skill.png Prerequisites: None
Skill.png I required for: Tech 1 and Faction Damage Controls; Inertial Stabilizers I; Overdrive Injector System I; Nanofiber Internal Structure I; Expanded Cargohold I; Reinforced Bulkheads I; Tech 1 and Faction Small Armor Repairers; Small Ancillary Armor Repairer; Small Hull Repairers; Skill.png Hull Upgrades; Skill.png Repair Systems; Advanced Small Ship Construction
Skill.png II required for: Tech 1 and Faction Medium Armor Repairers; Medium Ancillary Armor Repairer; "Basic" Resistance Platings; Skill.png Advanced Industrial Ship Construction
Skill.png III required for: Tech 1 and Faction Large Armor Repairers; Large Ancillary Armor Repairer; Capital Ancillary Armor Repairer; Medium Hull Repairers; Small Armor Repairer II; Skill.png Advanced Medium Ship Construction; Skill.png Armor Layering; Skill.png Caldari Defensive Systems; Skill.png Jury Rigging; Skill.png Remote Armor Repair Systems; Skill.png Remote Hull Repair Systems; Skill.png Salvaging

Notes.png Notes: The basic skill for this whole category. Mechanics is a quick train and comes with a nice bonus -- although hull tanking of any kind is unwise, most of the time, extra structure is more overall EHP and may make the difference in a close fight. You need level IV to use T2 medium armor repairers, and level V to use T2 large ones.



Skill.png Remote Armor Repair Systems

Operation of remote armor repair systems. 5% reduced capacitor need for remote armor repair system modules per skill level.
Implants.png Attributes: Intelligence.pngMemory.png
Multiplier.png Multiplier: 2x
Isk.png Price: 85k ISK
Skill.png Prerequisites: Mechanics III, Repair Systems II
Skill.png I required for: Tech 1 and Faction Small Remote Armor Repairers; Tech 1 and Faction Capital Remote Armor Repairers; Small Ancillary Remote Armor Repairer, Capital Remote Ancillary Armor Repairer
Skill.png II required for: Tech 1 and Faction Medium Remote Armor Repairers; Medium Ancillary Remote Armor Repairer
Skill.png III required for: Tech 1 Large Remote Armor Repairers; Small Remote Armor Repairer II; Tech 1 Armor Maintenance Bots
Skill.png IV required for: Medium Remote Armor Repairer II; Large Remote Armor Repairer II; Tech 2 Armor Maintenance Bots
Skill.png V required for: Capital Remote Armor Repairer II; Skill.png Capital Remote Armor Repair Systems
Notes.png Notes: Level IV is required to use T2 large remote armor reppers. Although people often prefer the meta 4 'Solace' repper, the skill is still useful for reducing reppers' cap requirements. Key for anyone who flies in RR battleship gangs or flies an armor logistics ship.



Skill.png Remote Hull Repair Systems

Operation of remote hull repair systems. 5% reduced capacitor need for remote hull repair system modules per skill level.
Implants.png Attributes: Intelligence.pngMemory.png
Multiplier.png Multiplier: 2x
Isk.png Price: 100k ISK
Skill.png Prerequisites: Mechanics III
Skill.png I required for: Small Remote Hull Repairer I
Skill.png II required for: Medium Remote Hull Repairer I
Skill.png III required for: Large Remote Hull Repairer I; Tech 1 Hull Maintenance Bots
Skill.png IV required for: Tech 2 Hull Maintenance Bots
Skill.png V required for: Capital Remote Hull Repairer I; Tech 2 Remote Hull Repairers; Skill.png Capital Remote Hull Repair Systems
Notes.png Notes:



Skill.png Repair Systems

Operation of armor/hull repair modules. 5% reduction in repair systems duration per skill level.
Implants.png Attributes: Intelligence.pngMemory.png
Multiplier.png Multiplier: 1x
Isk.png Price: 30k ISK
Skill.png Prerequisites: Mechanics I
Skill.png I required for: Tech 1 and Faction Small/Medium/Large Armor Repairers; Tech 1 Hull Repairers; Small/Medium/Large Ancillary Armor Repairers
Skill.png II required for: Small/Medium/Large Hull Repairer II; Skill.png Remote Armor Repair Systems

Skill.png IV required for: Medium/Large Armor Repairer II; Large 'Reprieve' Vestment Reconstructor I; Medium Nano Armor Repair Unit I
Skill.png V required for: Capital Hull Repairers; Skill.png Capital Repair Systems
Notes.png Notes: The required skill for local armor repairers. You need level IV to use T2 large armor repairers. This is an important skill for anyone who uses active armor tanking, and since it's a short train you may as well take it to V.



Skill.png Thermal Armor Compensation

5% bonus to thermal resistance per level for Armor Coatings and Energized Platings
Implants.png Attributes: Intelligence.pngMemory.png
Multiplier.png Multiplier: 2x
Isk.png Price: 120k ISK
Skill.png Prerequisites: Hull Upgrades IV
Notes.png Notes: This doesn't help active hardeners at all but can really help passive hardeners, which see some use in PvP fits. A PvP-focused armor-tanking pilot should train this skill and the three other 'X Armor Compensation' skills to III or IV in the medium-long term.
