# 1 Bonus Defense Formula
11-13-2012, 06:18 AM
Does anyone happen to know how a ship determines what it's maximum bonus defense is by chance? My google-foo failed and servers are all down =(

Maximum defence is like 70, at top speed with 9/9 in maneuvers if I'm not mistaken. Without traits and gear, that is.

To reach your maximum defense, your impulse speed needs to be at a minimum of 24.

Besides impulse speed and starship maneuver skill there are other factors involved as well. Escorts get 10% more bonus defense, having the elusive trait gives 10% more, and using the Aegis engines gives 5% more, with an additional 5% more from the 2 piece set bonus.

You can have a max of 90% if using an escort with elusive and max maneuver skill while going at impulse speed 24 and using Aegis set.

There are a number of factors:-
Obviously there's speed.
There's the elusive trait (+10 bonus defense)
Escorts have an innate +10
AEGIS engines have +5
AEGIS 2-piece set gives you a further +5
Attack Pattern Omega
Subspace modulator
Etc

As for the actual formula I'm afraid I have no idea.

I meant on what a ship's inherent maximum bonus defense was, its cool though thanks for the help. Or is it the engine that determines the maximum bonus defense hmm.

It's mostly the ship, but there are equipment, skill points, and impulse speed that factor in the rest.

The numbers change depending on where you are- only the base numbers show in sector space (as well as onboard stations) but while in mission space item numbers with bonus's applied appear to show.

There's a nice chart floating around in the PvP forum showing the skill multipliers effect on equipment.
