Easily missed war assets (some spoilers)

#1JustinS1985Posted 3/11/2012 10:45:01 PM
Hey guys, just finishing up my new game+ and figured I would list out some of the eavesdropping war assets. This will not include planet scanning since that's so easy to figure out.

In the refugee docks some refugees are asking to be let in, if you support them this lowers your assets for citadel defense force. (pre cit attack)

Listen to multiple conversations between the police officers outside the bar on the citadel. Once the conversation has cycled through go to the spectre office and you can approve c-sec to kick the con artist off the citadel. This improves your war assets. (pre cit attack)

In the presidium there is a csec officer who wants to view a camera feed. Support him over the bar owner then go to the spectre office and approve csec to view all camera feeds to improve war assets. (post cit attack)

Two weapons merchants are arguing in the presidium over whether or not to sell guns to anyone. Support the person who does not want to sell guns to everyone, then go to the spectre office and approve their idea for a militia to raise your assets. (post attack)

Two police officers at csec are arguing over whether or not to prosecute small crimes. Tell them to let the little things go or you will lose assets. (post cit attack)

Go upstairs in the bar and listen to the full conversation between the two smugglers. Once you have heard all the parts of it go back to the spectre office and approve the request to draft the smugglers to increase war assets. (post cit attack)

During the rannoch missions two quarrian admirals will be arguing over whether or not to send escorts away from the civilian fleet to support the heavy fleet. If you do not support the heavy fleet you lose war assets.

Outside the Normandy dock is a girl asking to fight reapers instead of Cerberus. Eventually her transfer request will show up on your spectre board. Approving this lowers your war assets.

In the hospital is an asari with PTSD if you listen to her entire story she will ask for a gun. Her request shows up on your reaper console. Approving this lowers readiness.

Two people are arguing in the presidium saying the war will never hit the citadel warn them that it will to increase readiness (pre cit attack)

A customer is trying to withdraw his money from the bank in the presidium. Tell him to leave it in to boost war assets (post attack)

Two people in the presidium are arguing whether to make VIs for profit or for the war tell them to make them for the war to boost war assets (pre cit attack)

Talk to liaras father at the bar in the presidium, then make liara go over and meet her father. This can only happen early in the game while liara is sitting near the bar/restaurant.

After curing the genophage talk with Diana allers, use the paragon response to raise your war assets.

If you make peace with the geth/quarrian Diana will interview you in your cabin. Paragon her to get bonus assets for the geth.

That's all I have, if anyone else knows of any others let me know :)

If you tell Dr. Chakwas to stay with Hackett she'll become a war asset, however she is only worth (up to) ten points.
I heartily recommend you keep her on the Normandy at least for your first run. Her dialogue regarding Cerberus is priceless.
I don't believe Dr. Michel is a war asset regardless of your choice, so let her on board for an NG+.

If you picked Spacer background then Shepard's mother is a war asset. No other backgrounds appear to have war assets, so yeah.

Destroying the Collector Base back in ME2 is worth 100, but saving it is worth 110. It also lowers the minimum requirements for better versions of one of the endings, however since we're going for maximum assets that's largely irrelevant.

The vows we made are under attack, I can feel myself pushing back, back, back.
How can you find yourself, when you're surrounded by cowards?

Off topic, but I initially misread your username as Eclipse Blasto Armor, and I instantly thought how cool something like that would look. on him XD

Allegedly if Wrex dies on Virmire then you go on to sabotage the Genophage cure at The Shroud, Wreav won't realise he's been had and you'll get maximum support from both Krogan and Salarian forces.
If Wrex is alive then he'll realise Shepard's deception and you'll lose the Krogan.

But that means killing Wrex. ;~;

EDIT: Apparently you have to have destroyed Maelon's data in ME2 too so Eve dies to retain the support of both races, but I'm not sure. This outcome does save Mordin though.

Anyone know if supporting the admiral over tali when they are arguing over if they should use ships to look for survivors or geth tech makes a difference?

According to a separate Guide I looked up, authorizing the Asari Huntress's weapon request raises readiness. Can someone confirm that it lowers it?

Balls. I'm too far in to bother with restarting too.

And we seriously need a censor bar system for spoilers on the forums. I scrolled down out of instinct.

To be fair the topics says there may be spoilers...

Of course but it would still be a boon when you want to be selective about what to spoil. It would make the forums neater too.
