# 1 Bonus Defense at 80%?!?!?!?!?
09-22-2011, 08:44 AM
Hey everyone,
Ok, I have read on the forums where some people have a bonus defense of 80% on their ship when they are moving. How do you get it that high?!?!?!?!?? My normal bonus defense is 70%, and with the Aegis engines, I can get it up to 75%, but how do you guys get it up to 80%?!?!?!?!?!?!? Oh, by the way, I fly the Defiant-R, (Tactical Escort Retrofit)

80 seems high. Are they talking about while using Deuterium?

No, at least I don't think so. I can get my normal defense to 75% at full speed, and that is without any buffs.

Maximize your Defense by having your Engine Power around 65 (actual values very due to efficiency), this will get your Defense up to 70%.

Two Aegis components add another 5% each (Total of 10% Defense), which makes it 80%.


Then also factor in the Evasive Trait that adds another 10% Defense. Which gives you a maximum Defensive Boost of 90%, without defensive boosts like Evasive, Deuterium, or the Subspace Console (from the Devidian series).

I had not realized Aegis added 5% from 2 different pieces. I thought it was 5% in total. Good to know! Thanks Azurian!

It not common knowleadge for but the faster you go the better you defence in the game. So the numbers you are are not out of line for BOP or Eascort.

That was changed a while ago. Cruisers are base caped at 60% and Escorts 70%.

And like I said, Aegis with the Deflector and Engines adds 10%, then another 10% with the Evasive Trait. Then abilities like the Subspace Console and Evasive adds more on top of that.

Yeah, originally one piece added 10% Defense, but that was regarded too good so they split the difference between the Aegis Deflector and the Aegis Engine.

No it can do higher. But there is a diminishing returns at the extreme ends of the Accuracy vs Defense curve. Basically adding extra Defense or Accuacy to a very high value won't affect your changed or hitting/being hit nearly as much as adding the same amount to a lower value.

The 75% cap you are thing of is for Shield Damage Resistance. It's capped at a total of 75% reduction.

And that Defense bonus only applied if you are moving at a modest speed or faster.
