The description says:

Increases drone hit points. 5% bonus to drone shield,
armor and hull hit points per level.

but the attributes says:

hull hit points 5%

So, what gets the 5 percent bonus? Just the hull, or the hull, shields, armor and all?

All. I wouldn't say "syntax error!" unless I had the API documentation. Very Happy

Documentation? I cut-and-pasted from in-game info. Anyone who has the said skill can read it for themselves. I think this needs clarification.

It's a programming thing.

It's unclear, yes. But a syntax error would be "hllu hit points" or "word%".

But all 3 fields get the bonus. They just named it inappropriately.

Does the skill work on Fighters also?

Negative, as far as I know, the fighter skill is the only skill that works on fighters. Otherwise carriers would be sort of unbalanced towards Gallente, since we use them a ton and usually pilots of Gallente ships will have many more SP in Drones then say a pilot of Caldari, Amarr, or Minmatar.

API means "Application Program Interface". What I meant was that you can't say that its an error because you don't know what that variable actually means.

That would actually be a spelling error. Wink

Syntax is word order, before anyone else blunders in.

Dude, carriers are already pretty damn unbalanced in favour of Gallente. Besides, lots of people racial cross-train, I'm Amarr/Khanid and have my 2nd-most SP in drones.
