Basically there are 3 different ways of local tanking:
  • Buffer (mix of pure HP + resists)
  • Active (shield booster / armour repair)
  • Passive Regen (shield regeneration, no armour equivilant)
Additionally you can use logi (or spider tank) to provide Remote Repair (usually combined with a high resist buffer tank), which is what you will see being used in incursion fleets.

For solo missioning and combat sites, Active tank is the most common, as the damage profile from the NPCs is low but substained damage (Passive Regen can also be used, but depends on the ship).

For group missions (incursions and sleeper sites), Remote Repair is most common form of tanking

For PVP you will usually either see Buffer or Remote Repair, this is because you are looking at high burst damage, usually over a much shorted time scale than missions. The only real exception for PVP is solo. where you may see Active tank, usually in the form of an Ancillary Shield Booster or Ancillary Armour Repairer.

Good info, thanks.

Alright, I've gotten some good pointers in this thread. Thanks!
