The Energy Resistor is a ship resistor. It gives your hull a percentage of resistance to energy weapons on your ships' armor.
They were first available in black market for purchase. They can be bought with either: Only Blood Amber or only coins. The level III version on the energy resistor will appear for the first week of the three week cycle before being rotated with the explosive resistor and the projectile resistor.
Strategy and Setup
Energy resistors provide a relatively good amount of protection against Energy Weapons. This can best be used in cutters, cruisers, battleships and virtually any ship as weapons such as ECHO rays, Burst ray, Aurora rays and Impulse beams are common PvP weapons.
Resistors do not increase repair time and can be incredibly efficient, far more efficient than Zynthium armor.
They are reusable items. Unlike blueprints, players have a limited amount of them, which depends on the number they acquire. Fortunately, they aren't lost when they're removed from a ship, so they can be used on another one without problems. They are also hard to obtain as the strongest version, Level III, have relatively high prices in Blood Amber (120) and coins (280) when purchasing. The Level III version also rotates making it even harder to get, and you can only get a single Resistor III per cycle with Blood Amber.
In some situations, other resistors are more ideal. For example, destroyers will most likely use a projectile resistor for base attacks, as projectile turrets are common long range weapons. With Fissure torpedoes and Manifold missiles rapidly rising in popularity, the energy resistor isn't as valuable as before.
Resistors only give resistance to armor and not shields, hence they are not effective on hulls that have minimal armor. Resistors are only mathematically worth their weight if the ship has roughly more than 5,000 armor. This means a higher armor should be equipped with a resistor to be at its full potential surviving enemy fire, use of resistors enhance a ship's survival without increasing repair time.
- The Energy resistor originally was the most used resistor in the game as ECHO Rays and Burst Rays dominated PvP at that time.
