Soak

Some Ships, Station Kits, and Drones have damage soaks to certain types of damage. If a ship has energy soak, any energy shots that hit will have their damage reduced by the value of the soak, not a percent. This affects recoil damage too; if an immolation is used on a ship with 5 fire soak, that ship will take 5 less damage per bullet from using it. As such, soaks are an important factor in selecting the right ship.

A negative soak value indicates the ship having a weakness to that type of damage; any weapons of that damage type will do increased damage by that value.

Some diffusers supply additional soaks, as is the case for many high end Dampeners.

The Lagrange Control Skills provide the same effect, but are not built into any particular ship.
