Instant resistor credits were first available in the Black Market for purchase with either Blood Amber or Coins. The level III version appears every three weeks in a cycle with the other resistors. Since then, this offer has been migrated to the Credit Market.
Strategy and Setup
Energy Resistors are useful on ships designed for close combat such as cruisers and cutters because most powerful short-range weapons are Energy-type. Considering that the vast majority of Energy weaponry cannot be dodged, this resistor provides a way to mitigate damage that is otherwise unavoidable.
Resistors do not increase repair time and can be incredibly efficient, especially if the ship has lots of health.
Energy Resistors are difficult to obtain due to their exclusivity to The Markets, especially the level III version. Think thrice before equipping them onto your ships, because the instant credits will not be refunded when you swap or remove them.
