Looking for DOCTRINE FITS?


The Arbitrator is a ship of a dual role: it can deal damage as a drone boat and it is an EWAR platform. It has the largest drone bay of any T1 cruiser, beating even the Gallente Vexor, though it has less drone bandwidth than the Vexor. It can still field a full flight of medium drones at a time however, and has the bay to carry 3 flights of medium drones or 6 flights of light drones (or a mix), giving it unparalleled flexibility in its class. As well as its drones the Arbitrator also has bonuses to the Amarr racial EWAR, weapon disruption.

The Arbitrator has a balanced slot layout of mids and lows, but is normally armor tanked to allow the mids to be used for tracking disruptors and/or guidance disruptors. The Arbitrator has no bonuses to any weapon type, so can use any turret it likes, but given the split turret and launcher slots and lack of bonuses many pilots forego weapons entirely in favor of nosferatu or neutraliser arrays. One Drone Link Augmentor can be added, but it usefulness is limited given the relatively short targeting range and lack of drone speed bonus of the Arbitrator.

As weapon disruption is ineffective against drones or EWAR, and as it is of no use opposing logistics, it is often considered one of the weaker types of EWAR. However one or two bonused weapon disruptors can remove a ship's ability to apply its damage.
