Eve Definitions

This will be an updated, alphabetized  list of words that I use in my blogs for those of my readers that are unfamiliar with EVE Online Terminology. These definitions will be short and to the point, if you want more information, I urge you to search it at Evelopedia. If there is a word you feel I have missed, please leave a comment to let me know.

Armor - The second of 3 levels of hit points. The first being shields, the last being structure(hull)

Capacitor - Source of energy on a spaceship

Hybrid Turrets - Projectile weapons that fire their charges with energy from the capicitor

Hull - See Structure.

Megathron Gallente Battleship, main form of offence is hybrid turrets, main defense is armor

Missiles - Lock onto a target and fly until impact or run out of fuel, flight distance is determined by max velocity and max flight time

Mission - Assignments given to capsuleers by agents. Can be completed for money and items and standings
