Just finished my Arbitrator fitting and need last help for low-slots:

High: Beam Laser, Cloak, Salvage, Tractor Beam
Med: AB II, Large Cap Battery II, Cap Recharge II, Drone Navigation Computer
Low: EANM II, DCU II, 400mm Tungsten, MAR II or 2 x EANM II, DCU II, MAR II

What is best? According to EFT I will get 12724 effective HP using a 400mm Tungsten and 11609 for using another EANM instead. But using another EANM will also make more damage and it will be easier for my MAR to keep up and hold a stable armor repair or am I wrong?

Also what drones would be best too use for killing drones in Drone Region?

Defintely go with the EANM. You are correct in that your MAR will have to work less, plus the EANM is easier to fit and won't slow you down as much.

general idea is more resists on armour if you going to be perma-tanking the damage (pve), DC2 if there's the possibility you're going to get taken to hull (pvp)

I used to do all the triple drone spawns back when the new regions just opened (HD-H0Z was such a fun system. We called it "Head Hoes" in Vent) in an Arbitrator. From memory my setup was:

Salvagers and tractors (though at the time I didn't have salvage skill yet so it was just tractors)
10MN AB II, 2 Medium Peroxide cap batteries, 1 F-B10 cap recharger
MAR II, 2x N-Type Ex hards, 800mm plate

The plate was so you wouldn't get one-volleyed when your tracking dropped and while you're ABing into orbit range. It worked for me at the time, though I might do it differently now. Still, only 1500-1700 armor isn't much to work with. I tend to plate all my cruisers, weather it be PvE or PvP, but never my BCs. Almost always on my BS nowadays as well.

Also at the time drone damage types weren't known exactly. 1 ex hard and an EANM might be better if they do about the same amount of all damage types.
