PARAGON/RENEGADE        [PRRN]
――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――
 The Paragon/Renegade gauges (which can be viewed in Shepard's equipment
 screen) affect many things in the game. Mass Effect's unique dialogue trees
 allow the player to pick certain choices to gain Paragon/Renegade points,
 which fill the corresponding gauges. Helpful, altruistic, or understanding
 choices give paragon points; self-serving, ruthless, and generally mean
 decisions give Renegade points.

 The "answer wheel" appears during dialogue and features all the current
 choices the player can pick. The NW and NE options are "paragon" by nature,
 while the SW and SE options are "renegade" by nature. The left/rightmost
 options show ambivalence and are considered "neutral," giving no points to
 either gauge. The leftmost neutral slot is also used for investigation
 purposes. [NOTE: Certain choices give the points; there isn't a for-sure way
 to get them without foreknowledge. Also, sometimes the conversation is geared
 toward one outcome and, say, the neutral choice may give P/R points.] Here's
 an fake example of an answer wheel:

        |――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――|
        | Let me help you up. -.  _________  ,- Are you alright?   |
        |                       \//―――――――\\/                      |
        |        Investigate. --((         ))-- I'm good.          |
        |                       /\\_______//\                      |
        |     [Shoot person.] -'  ―――――――――  '- Get outta my face! |
        |__________________________________________________________|

 Shepard's Charm/Intimidate options will directly affect if the NW/SW options
 appear. These special options will be colorized if they appear, grayed-out if
 the C/I talents are too low. Not only do these options typically give more
 Paragon/Renegade points than normal options, but some situations CANNOT be
 resolved in a happy manner unless one's C/I talents are at a certain level.
 An non-spoilerish example of this is a standoff on planet Virmire.

 The Paragon/Renegade gauges are broken down into chunks, which show up as
 a line through the bar at certain (uneven) intervals. When each gauge is
 10%, 25%, or 75% full, it gives a free Charm/Intimidate point.

MAKO                    [MKOO]
――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――
 When exploring worlds, there's only one vehicle suited for the job: Mako!
 Not only is it an all-terrain six-wheeler, but it's equipped with a machine
 gun and cannon for fighting off hostiles. There are some things to know when
 using it, however.

 • Mako can climb mountains, freefall thousands of feet, and generally horse
   off on the planetscape without incurring any damage. However, there are
   some places it can't go, and that's too far outside the operation zone (the
   red marking on the minimap) and, in rare occurances, lava. Going in lava's
   instant death, obviously.

 • Some planets have such mountainous terrain that it's hard to get around.
   If you come to a sheer cliff, the vehicle can often slip down; however, by
   wiggling perpendicular to the slope, Mako can get some traction and perhaps
   slow-crawl up to the top. This doesn't always work but it's important to
   realize how much traction helps!

 • The trajectory of the cannon and machine gun can be off if not on level
   ground; they fire straight, not in arcs. If you want to snipe something
   from far away, make sure the thing isn't cresting a hill or on too uneven
   ground.

 • The vehicle can repair itself with the Y-button (uses omnigel) and how much
   HP is restored depends on the team's Electronics stat. Note that Mako can't
   fight back while in self-repair mode, so make sure to leave the battlezone
   (such as going around a hill for static targets) and doing it there.

 • Killing things with its weapons gives reduced XP than normal, so you may
   want to get out on foot. It's possible to weaken an enemy and then exit to
   "take the credit," which helps when fighting thresher maws and geth colossi.

SHOP LICENSES           [SHPL]
――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――
 Although the world has many shops, chances are the one Shepard is near most
 is the one onboard the Normandy. This one starts out as just a basic shop,
 but when a license -- a unique item sold elsewhere -- is bought, the ship's
 quartermaster will gain the ability to sell that company's merchandise. Now,
 once bought, licenses don't appear in the inventory, cannot be bought/sold
 thereafter, and can only be bought once. Shops around the world carry 'em,
 but some don't appear until a set level is reached, for reference. Here's
 where they can be found (no spoilers):

 • Aldrin Labs -----------> Citadel Wards (C-Sec)
 • Ariake Technologies ---> Citadel Wards (C-Sec)
 • Armali Council --------> Vermire
 • Armax Arsenal ---------> Citadel Upper Wards,
 • Devlon Industries -----> Citadel Presidium
 • Elanus Risk Control ---> Citadel Lower Wards, Virmire
 • Elkoss Combine --------> Citadel Upper Wards, Noveria (Port Hanshan)
 • Haliat Armory ---------> Feros (Zhu's Hope)
 • Kassa Fabrication -----> Citadel Wards (C-Sec), Noveria (Peak 15)
 • Geth Armory -----------> Citadel Lower Wards
 • Rosenkov Materials ----> Noveria (Port Hanshan)
 • Serrice Council -------> Citadel Presidium
 • Sitta Foundation ------> Citadel Presidium, Noveria (Peak 15)

 There is no "Hahne-Kedar" or "Spectre - Master Gear" license to buy because
 the quartermaster will have them by default (the latter post-Citadel). It's
 worth mentioning that only storyline planets have shops on them, so these're
 the only locations where things can be bought/sold.

TIPS N' TRICKS          [TPST]
――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――
 Mass Effect can be pretty brutal on those who like to run in Rambo style, so
 here's a compilation of tips and their ilk to get a leg up. Like usual, any
 reader who has a killer trick can send it my way, and if it's good 'nough
 (keep it germane and reproducible) I'll stick it here with credit.

 • SAVING. A fundament of any game, saving is very important, and this applies
   even if auto-saves are turned on. As you'll soon find, auto-saving takes
   place only when going back to the Normandy, to a planet/location, or after
   certain storyline-based events. That leaves a whole lotta space in-between,
   and if the player isn't diligent about saving, it can get pretty annoying
   if things go south. The game keeps track of the # of saves, but it affects
   nothing so don't feel intimidated.

 • COVER YOURSELF. The enemy has no problem ganging up Commander Shepard, and
   unlike allies, if s/he dies, it's automatic game over. Sidling up to a flat
   (vertical) surface lets the commander back up to it, which not only provides
   cover and quick-fire opportunities around corners, but gives a safe vantage
   point to see enemies around without being pumped full of plasma. Just make
   sure your back/flank is cleared first or someone can just walk up to the
   team and play firing squad. [When tall back-to-back cover is unavailable,
   pressing L-Stick in will commence crouching, which lets Shepard use shorter
   things as cover, like cement embankments.]

 • BOTTLENECKING. No, not slide guitar! Some enemies will swamp the party on
   many sides, which is an obvious disadvantage. So what to do? Find a bottle-
   -neck, such as the access corridor the squad went in. By forcing the enemy
   into the tight space ("bottleneck"), it gives perfect firing opportunities
   by all allies and robs the enemy of any cover. This is not only a good all-
   -around tactic but can be used as leverage if the allies aren't equipped
   that well (which usually comes with being low-leveled). Note that not all
   enemies are going to bumrush a corridor, so sometimes Shepard will have to
   command allies to stay put and act as bait to draw enemies closer. Since
   many uncharted planets' bases are exactly the same structure-wise, this
   tactic will save a lot of grief.

 • TEAMMATE SKILLS. Since Shepard's cohorts have fixed jobs, this means that
   certain combinations may be good or bad (although all cna work technically).
   Some people -- like Wrex and Garrus -- are good at both weapons and biotics,
   and this balance reflects in their skills and armor. Others, like Kaidan &
   Liara, are best as support and aren't that useful in a straight-out fight.
   Since the player can pick which job Shepard is, it's wise to surround one-
   -self with allies who best compliment that setup. Either way, having
   someone around with First Aid, Decryption, and Electronics skills will be a
   good idea, so don't count those support units out yet.

 • INVENTORY MANAGEMENT. Along the course of the game, there's going to be a
   lot of items, weapons, armor, and upgrades obtained. To put that in
   perspective, imagine fueling a planet-sized economy with the amount of
   those commodities obtained. Yeah, it's that much! That's why it'll always
   be a good idea to prune the inventory in three main ways: (1) selling items
   for profit, which isn't always possible on uncharted planets but is the
   only method that increases the benjamins (2) turning items into omni-gel,
   which is essential for decryption and other such things (3) not pick it
   up in the first place, which is a good idea if your team is outfitted well
   already and 999 omni-gel is already obtained.

   Crewmembers not used very often can be outfitted on the Normandy by going
   to their belowdecks lockers.

 • CHOICES MATTER. Shepard can be played as an altruistic saint, a neutral
   fence-sitter, or a heartless bastard -- middle ground, however, gives no
   benefits. Doing good deeds and showing self-sacrifice will give points to
   the Paragon gauge, which adds points to the Charm stat and gives random
   bonuses at certain increments (health bonus, lower cooldown times).
   Treating fellow races like crap, showing disdain for others' plights, and
   acting like a loose cannon will give "Renegade" points, the flipside to the
   Paragon gauge. However, this doesn't mean this path is bad -- in fact, it
   gives bonuses to the Intimidate stat and extra bonuses as well (First Aid
   cooldown lowered, health regeneration, etc.) There is no wrong way to play
   the commander, but be warned: some situations can go awry unless Shepard's
   able to talk his/her way out of it! [In the early going, investing points
   in Intimidate/Charm can pay off later.]

 • EXPERIENCE THINGS. And by that, I meant experience (EXP) comes in all sorts
   of ways, not just blowing monsters' heads off. During downtime, Shepard's
   able to gain experience by doing miniquests, inspecting things, learning
   more about the Normandy crew, and so on. Since experience is shared with
   all allies -- including ones not in the main party -- this is a good way to
   nickel-and-dime the system into giving level-ups. Note that this is not as
   necessary when galaxy exploration becomes available, but hey, free EXP is
   still EXP, and maybe the commander can make a pretty penny out of some
   deals.

_______________________________________________________________________________
―――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――
 Before the main game takes place, the player has to build Commander Shepard
 from the ground up. The choice of gender, background, aesthetics, and job
 class are all up in the air! Default names for Shepard are John and Jane,
 respectively. NOTE: See class overview for particular information. I would
 recommend a newcomer play Shepard as a soldier the first time around, just
 since they get the best armor and weapon options.

 Most of this is self-explanitory, but y'may be wondering: does this have any
 relevance? Yes. The job class one picks cannot be changed throughout the game,
 while each gender allows for certain romantic interests. The chosen background
 affects certain dialogue options, which may in turn affect Paragon/Renegade
 gauges. The part about Shepard being a famous human war hero always remains,
 to wit.

 Depending on the choices, Shepard will start off with a certain amount of
 Paragon/Renegade points:

 Colonist  + Ruthless ------> [+15R]
 Colonist  + Sole Survivor -> [+10P, +10R]
 Colonist  + War Hero ------> [+15P]
 Earthborn + Ruthless ------> [+20R]
 Earthborn + Sole Survivor -> [+15R, +05P]
 Earthborn + War Hero ------> [+10P]
 Spacer    + War Hero ------> [+10P]
 Spacer    + Ruthless ------> [+10R]
 Spacer    + Sole Survivor -> [+05R, +15P]

 A few notes before getting into the walkthrough. It's written on the default
 difficulty (Normal) so everything gathered in the document's based off that.
 Reply choices and how they affect the gauges will be listed as well, but only
 relevant ones are shown -- convo choices not put there don't affect anything.

NORMANDY
――――――――
 Before Eden Prime is visited, Shepard starts out in the Normandy's bridge
 with the pilot (Joker) and Kaiden Alenko, who'll we'll learn more about in a
 bit. There'll be some chit-chatting here and the first of many decisions that
 affect Shepard's growth. If you read the manual, you'll know that there are
 three types of answers: paragon, neutral, and renegade, which are listed in
 that respective order from top to bottom. Later, when the Charm/Intimidate
 skills are increased, more options (blue- or red-colored) appear on the
 "answer wheel"'s left side. For now, it's simple.

   [+2P] "I agree."
   [+2R] "Cut the chatter!"

 The captain will then want to see the commander at the other end of the ship,
 in the comm room. There's usually events that can be done in-between these
 story-forwarding exchanges, but for now, there's only one with the corporal
 and doctor talking near the galaxy map.

   [+2P] "Relax, Jenkins."
   [+2R] "Part of the job, Doc."

 In the comm room, Nihlus will be waiting. Although there's a long convo that
 takes place here, none of the options affect much. However, for those trying
 to get the Scholar achievement, Nihlus can namedrop the Protheans if the
 convo's swung in that direction, and that codex entry's (apparently) missable.
 And after that, it's down to the planet!

EDEN PRIME
――――――――――
 NOTE: Whatever difficulty this mission finishes on is secured for the rest of
 the game (can't be changed). People trying to get Hardcore achievements (etc.)
 on their new game plus files should keep this in mind.

 Corpse  (___/-Start      aimlessly, look for a dead end which has a weapon
  Event                   upgrade. Up the path, after a rather sad event,
                          shoot down some recon drones and inspect the corpse.

   [+2P] "He deserves a burial."
   [+2R] "Forget about him."

 Further up the road, past the upgrade kit, some more recon drones appear in
 the forest footpath. A [Medi-Gel] kit is along one of the small hills here,
 too. Near the other side here, a soldier named Ashley Williams will be getting
 attacked by some geth troopers, mere foot soldiers and some of the more common
 enemies in the game.

   [+2P] "Are you okay?"
   [+2R] "We're on a mission."

 Ashley Williams (soldier) will end up joining no matter what, and she's very
 good at her job despite having no biotics ability. I suggest improving her
 Assault Rifles ability and at least one point in 'Soldier,' which allows for
 minor health regeneration. There's a [Scorpion 1] light armor here and Kaidan
 needs it more than anyone, if yer feelin' altruistic.

 At the dig site, the beacon is missing but a few troopers are around. The
 game will say to crouch (press L-Stick in) behind small objects for cover,
 and that'll come in handy throughout the game. Geth are machines so remember
 to equip those Armor-Piercing Rounds found back a ways. Some weapon upgrades
 are near the investigatable beacon plinth, so don't forget 'em either. Since
 Kaidan can only use pistols, give him the one found...you can see how much
 babying must be done for some classes, huh?

 The camp is the next destination, and it's right nearby. Husks attack here,
 being ex-human machines that emit an area electrical attack at close range.
 Try to take 'em out from afar; the pistol has best accuracy at this point.
 When defeated, loot the open trailer and decrypt the other. How to decrypt?
 Just quickly follow the button input, three in all. If you screw up, use some
 omni-gel to get in. Inside said trailer is a survivor.

   [+2P] "You're safe."
   [+2R] "Tell me what happened."

 If Shepard's Intimidate skill is high enough, more options are available when
 talking to Manuel.

   [+9R] "Time for you to shut up!"

 Decking Manuel is probably the first blatantly rude thing to do in the game,
 but hey, it sure was fun! Down the road, at the train station, are some geth
 walking the platform. Bumrushing them is stupid, but there are a few ways to
 make this easier (waiting for them to come up the road, shooting explosive
 canisters near them, etc.). A few husks join the fray but are easy fodder.

 Nearby is a locked shed with some farmers inside. By using Charm/Intimidate
 options, they can be pressed for more information about the local smuggling
 ring. Cole gives the team a pistol

  [+2P] "It's safe."
  [+2R] "You're holding out on me."
  [+2P] "He may know something."
  [+2R] "Is he worth dying for?"

 On the platform, talk with Nihlus and a refugee (Powell) will appear from
 behind some crates. An investigative conversation plays here but won't impact
 the P/R gauges...unless you found out that Powell was part of the smuggling
 ring from Cole. Interrogating him in this fashion can make him give up a
 grenade upgrade.

  [+2P] "Let it go, Williams."
  [+2R] "You're lying."

 Shoot your way down to the walkway parallel to the train tracks, and use the
 knee-high barriers as cover while taking out the geth. Any ally who "dies"
 here will be automatically resurrected when all hostiles are neutralized.
 Operate the train controls when they're smoldering piles.

 When arriving at the train station, Saren's forces will have setup some
 bombs and there's a 5:00 running timer to defuse them all. Shepard is the
 only one who can do so (they look like flags on the mini-map) and can't fight
 back when doing so, so take out local foes first, or at least find cover.
 There are four in all. Watch out for rocket-firing shock troopers, which are
 basically a OHKO at this early stage.

 Following the demolition charges' deactivation, the other side of the train
 platform has a few more geth to clear out. Collect the items from the crates
 'round here before inspecting the beacon to end the level.

NORMANDY
――――――――
 Shepard wakes up in the ship's medical bay, but nothing comes of the rather
 long dialogue portion that ensues. The destination is talking to Joker but
 wandering around can now be done in full. Remember that you can change unit
 equipment by inspecting lockers in the cargo bay, which is down the lift.

 • Kaiden and Ashley are in the mess hall, and both have conversations that
   can wind around to the following options.

   [+2P] "You helped."
   [+2R] "The mission failed."

 • Inspecting the Mako (cargo bay), a computer panel (by galaxy map) and the
   comm link (comm room) gives minute amounts of experience.

 • Inspecting Shepard's locker (by mess hall) gives a few weapons, randomly
   generated.

_______________________________________________________________________________
―――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――
 Citadel is the most complex city in the game, so don't take this as some kind
 of standard or anythin'. There are two main areas of here: the Presidium,
 where politics go on, and the Wards, where normal people hang out. That's how
 I will split up the section here. Once the do-nothing meeting with grumpy
 Ambassador Udina is done, walking around can be done. The destination will
 be the Citadel Tower, but since the Wards won't be open until after meeting
 with the Council, y'might as well do the mandatory stuff at the start.

CITADEL TOWER [MANDATORY]
―――――――――――――――――――――――――
 This is accessible from the NW part of the Presidium -- check the map below
 or the one in-game to find it. Following a longtastic elevator ride, talk
 with Executor Pallin, which introduces a scene with Garrus Vakarian. Locate
 Cap'n Anderson across the lobby to start the councilors' meeting.

   [+2P] "Quit protecting him!"

 Afterwards, the goal becomes to locate Harkin in Chora's Den. This will be
 covered in "The Wards [Mandatory]" section below. There is one optional event
 in the citadel tower at the moment.

 • Talk with Chorban near the mezzanine's Keeper and talk with him until the
   option to help him scan the Keepers comes up. This begins the assignment
   "Citadel: Scan the Keepers".

 on things, and aren't really necessary in the grand scheme of things. Now,
 for the Citadel's Overview. I'll skip currently unnecessary locations.

 • Udina's Office is the starting point, and has a decryptable laptop. Hack it
   to unlock the assignment "Unusual Readings," which can be done later.

 • Hack the laptop in Executor Pallin's office (in embassy) to unlock the
   "Strange Transmission" assignment that can be done later.

 • MINUTE EXPERIENCE GAINING: Learn about the volus/elcor ambassadors, speak
   with the embassy receptionist, inspect the diplomatic archives near the
   lounge; learn about Executor Pallin, get the Citadel lowdown from Avina
   terminals, chat with Barla Von at the bank;

 • Talk with Nelyna at the consort's chambers and after a conversation, the
   consort herself (Sha'ina) will want to see the commander. Agree to help
   her deal with a lie-spreading general in Chora's Den to unlock the "Asari
   Consort" assignment.

 • Talk with Jahleed in the C-Sec building's west wing and agree to help him
   out against Chorban, who's apparently trying to kill him. This opens the
   "Citadel: Jahleed's Fears" mission.

 • Emily Wong will be standing near the stairway to the Flux casino. Talk to
   her and agree to help her with some "investigative journalism". This will
   open up the assignment "Citadel: Reporter's Request".

 • Talk to Conrad Verner in the upper markets and agree to give him an
   autograph, which kickstarts the "Citadel: The Fan" assignment.

 • In Flux, talk with Rita about her sister and agree to help. This begins the
   "Citadel: Rita's Sister" assignment.

 • MINUTE EXPERIENCE BONUSES: Inspect the console in the C-Sec parking lot,
   view the nebula from in front of the clinic office, check a terminal in the
   C-Sec traffic control room.

THE WARDS [MANDATORY]
―――――――――――――――――――――
 So, you cleared as many assignments as possible and now yer itchin' to blow
 some heads off. Never fear -- that part is coming up. As said before, the
 mission is to find Harkin in Chora's Den, the shady lower-wards pub that has
 a bad reputation.

 • En route to Chora's Den, two assassins will open fire in the square-shaped
   walkway. One can shoot rockets, so remember to keep moving or use the
   concrete railing as cover (duck with L-Stick in). They're kinda weak in
   other categories, though.

 There are no enemies within Chora's Den afterwards, but a scene introduces
 the team to a krogan named Wrex, who certainly LOOKS like an enemy. Either
 way, if Shepard talked with the consort before, she can continue that mission
 by talking to General Septimus here.

 • Interrogate Harkin to learn that Garrus went to Dr. Michel's office, which
   is the medical clinic in the landing near Flux.

 • Enter the office to see some of Fist's thugs harrassing the doc. Garrus'll
   help out in the firefight here. For best effect, duck near the low-lying
   wall at the entrance, which gives a good vantage point at the enemies who
   hide behind the pillars.

 Following, talk with Garrus.

   [+2P] "It was a big risk."
   [+2R] "Nice shot."

 A little detail-searching learns that a wounded Quarian has info on Saren,
 and the local contact Fist is in his pocket. Garrus will join the party here,
 and notes that Wrex -- the Krogan from before -- is at C-Sec and could help
 out some. He'll have to join the party eventually, but getting him now can be
 a big help as he's the 2nd of two balanced officers.

 • Return to Chora's Den and a firing squad will be waiting. Some thugs and
   the bartender will fire back, and since there's little cover here, try to
   shoot as many as possible from the outer hallway. If you don't hold the
   allies back, they may rush in and be shot up.

 Through the door, there may be some warehouse workers who force an event, but
 the only points to get out of it relate to the Charm/Intimidate skill so far.

  [+2P] "Save yourselves."
  [+2R] "You're making a mistake."

 Loot the wall locker, and find Fist in his office. Two automated turrets will
 play backup but they're easy marks overall. Battle ends when they're broken,
 or if Fist was taken down before then.

  [+2R] "You don't deserve to live." (If Wrex isn't with)
  [+2R] "He deserved it." (If Wrex is with)

 Apparently the quarian is in the back alley near the entrance to the lower
 markets (marked on Wards map above if you're not sure of its location). The
 bar will have more thugs in it, so make your way through 'em and toward the
 set location. There's 4:00 before the quarian dies and that's plenty of time
 to get along.

 The quarian girl being harassed in the back alley will quickly be assaulted,
 and Shepard's team has to help dispose of the assassins. Watch out for their
 annoying biotics abilities and use cover. The girl (Tali'Zorah nar Rayya)
 will join the party afterwards. She's a biotics specialist and has some
 alright fighting skills, unlike Kaidan who only gets pistols.

CITADEL TOWER [MANDATORY]
―――――――――――――――――――――――――
 Immediately following Tali's rescue, it's back to the tower to talk with
 Anderson again. This starts the 2nd Council meeting.

   [+2P] "It's the best solution."
   [+2R] "Quit holding us back!"

 Commander Shepard will be made a Spectre at this point, and gains the new
 ability set "Spectre Training" plus a free point in Charm/Intimidate. The
 new objective is to meet Udina at the docking bay (accessible from C-Sec
 elevator), although Anderson mentions the C-Sec requisitions officer will
 stock new items for the commander.

 • Talking with Rear Admiral Kahoku in the tower will unlock the "UNC: Missing
   Marines" mission.

 • Talking with Garoth in the tower will unlock the "UNC: Privateers" mission.

   [+2P] "I'll do it."
   [+2R] "Forget it."

 The Privateers mission should be the last optional assignment obtainable at
 this time, so it's off to the docking bay now! If you didn't get Wrex yet,
 you'll meet him at C-Sec academy's elevator and he can join up, as well as
 giving his down payment for tracking down Fist [36000c].

C-SEC DOCKING BAY / NORMANDY [MANDATORY]
――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――
 Udina and Anderson are here, and the Normandy will now be Shepard's to
 command at leisure. There are two leads on Saren, located in Noveria and
 Feros, respectively.

   [+2P] "I'll be careful."
   [+2R] "That's your job."

 Enter the Normandy now and Shepard will give a speech.

   [+2P] "Humanity must do its part."
   [+2R] "Nobody's going to help us."
   [+2P] "Everyone is counting on us."
   [+2R] "Humanity's in this alone!"

 At this point, Shepard can use the galaxy map to jetset around space, but
 there's one conversation with Pressly that's useful.

   [+2P] "They're on our side."
   [+2R] "You doubt my decisions?"

 There's some other minute XP-gathering things (inspect sleeper pod, captain's
 room manual, talk with crewmen, belowdecks monitor) but besides that, nothin'.

 Now, there's a ton of optional stuff to do and only two mandatory stops: Feros
 and Noveria. Which to do first? Noveria is undoubtedly harder and Feros ain't,
 so the choice should be obvious. HOWEVER, exploring the Traverse and getting
 into trouble (read: battles) is a good way to make cash, collect free items
 and equipment, and gain some levels along the way. This way, the mandatory
 sections won't be nearly as hard. There's no wrong way to proceed...well,
 unless you immediately go to Noveria. =p

 Knossos system of Artemis Tau -- the Milky Way map should have a note that
 says "Liara's Dig Site." This can be put off indefinitely but if you're
 trying to get the achievement that relates to Liara's party involvement,
 the sooner the better, eh?

 NOTE: If you haven't done some uncharted worlds to gain better equipment &
 cash, you may want to do that first. ONCE ON THE PLANET YOU CANNOT LEAVE

                                                   Geth

 This should be painfully obvious, but driving into the lava...will kill you.
 Using the Mako, hotfoot it down the burnt trail until a dropship drops a few
 soon-to-be destroyed geth. Near the refinery, the obvious path through has a
 shut gate and turrets; even if y'blow up the latter, the former will stand as
 an impedement. Take the side-path past some turrets and into camp, where the
 geth idiots have set up camp. Two of the three buildings here have a single
 enemy and a gate control, the latter of which is necessary to leave the
 refinery area. [There are some item crates behind some outdoor scenery.]

 Along the next rocky road, some geth armitures will act as obstacles, and
 further along, a large colossus and rocket troopers. Through the tunnels,
 the path will eventually narrow enough that the mako can't proceed [NOTE:
 This is how it's supposed to go, although there are ways to finaggle the
 vehicle past -- they won't be covered here.] On foot, some geth troopers're
 hanging out on the path leading up to the mining camp. Watch out for a few
 snipers when the road widens. Rocket troopers make the trek annoying, so
 don't be caught off-guard!

 Before approaching the mining camp proper, save! A large ambush appears here
 with a few armitures, mixed troopers, and a new enemy: ghosts. These super-
 -agile enemies jump around a lot and stick to any surface, but are physically
 weak -- the other allies can usually deal with 'em. Just remember to locate
 cover immediately after the cutscene or Shepard'll be sent home in chunks.
 Nearby is an entrance to the underground...

PROTHEAN RUINS
――――――――――――――
 There'll be more geth here on the catwalks downwards, so if you haven't
 equipped Tungsten Rounds (increases damage v. synthetics, which geth are)
 do so now. At the bottom of the elevator, jump down and meet with Liara and
 see what pickle she's gotten into. [If you do this late in the game, she'll
 have been here so long she thinks she's hallucinating!] Defeat a few geth at
 the bottom and look for the mine laser, which -- when hacked -- blows a hole
 in the floor. This can be used as a workaround, but remember to get any
 weapons lockers before jumpin' down. The laser code is: AXBY

 The elevator will take everyone up to Liara, who can then be freed. At the
 top of the shaft, the krogan and his geth flunkies will arrive. There's no
 sweet-talking to get the commander out of this one! The geth troopers aren't
 that big of an obstacle -- we've been fighting 'em this entire time -- but
 the battlemaster is a bit different. Like most krogan, when in critical HP,
 he'll bumrush Shepard with a rocket blast, then try for a quick melee attack
 to end things. Outside of keeping shields up (naturally), try using some
 creative biotic powers, if able -- Stasis or Lift in particular works well
 stalling. Like all krogans, instead of immediately dying, the "boss" will
 resurrect itself via sheer willpower, fighting off the remaining sliver of
 health it has left. But by that point, the fight's won. [Other than
 that, Liara will be present in the battle but neither assists or can be
 damaged. Usually the battlemaster hides a bit until the geth lackeys are
 slain; AI Hacking one of them, however, springs his wrath early.]

 Afterwards, enjoy the scene -- y'may never see a krogan hustle that fast
 again (if Wrex is with).

NORMANDY
――――――――
 Liara can officially join the party here. Also: inspect the drivecore systems,
 a heat core monitor, and Joker's gunnery station/viewpoint for minute traces
 of XP. There will be some new Citadel-oriented assignments opened now (since
 it's the first plot world cleared outside of said area; this applies even if
 Noveria or Feros was done against the walkthrough's suggested order).

 Upon exiting the Normandy, meet with David nearby -- a geth attack shortly
 follows the encounter. Now, it's possible to save the NPC by planting a
 grenade beforehand or through biotics trickery, but there's nothing gained
 by saving him 'cept a clearer conscience. In the nearby stairway, there is a
 small fight with a geth stalker, one of the quicker-moving geth types (they
 won't be a surprise if you've fought some uncharted worlds' bases). Through
 the hallway, it'll finally lead into the struggling colony of Zhu's Hope.
 Find Fai Dan at the end of the houses and after a little chit-chat, there'll
 be a geth attack from the nearby tower. Most are regular scrubs but there's
 one destroyer. When the dropship leaves, it's safe for awhile.

 ############################################################################
 OPTIONAL: Lower Tunnels

 Shepard can get a head start on some of the assignments now. As a miniature
 spoiler, these CAN be obtained later but due some circumstances, may not be
 able to be completed. Now's a good time to square 'em away while the NPCs
 are in the best of health. The missions are: (1) Geth in the Tunnels (2)
 Varren Meat (3) Power Cells (4) Water Restoration.

 Ian Newstead is down there too, and acting strangely.

  [+2P] "Can I help him?"
  [+2R] "Kill him."

 #############################################################################

 Return to Fai Dan after the dust settles.

  [+2P] "Happy to help."
  [+2R] "I didn't do it for you."

 If you haven't talked to Calantha Blake in the houses, now's a good time to
 get some easy points.

  [+2P] "What's wrong?"
  [+2R] "I hope you're not contagious."

 That'll be all the paragon/renegade choices for quite awhile. To exit this
 place and make for the ExoGeni Corporation building, enter the tower and find
 the elevator leading to the Prothean Skyway. Save a few colonists from a li'l
 drone and hope in the Mako to get goin'.

PROTHEAN SKYWAY
―――――――――――――――
 I could map this sucker but it's such a straightforward location...I mean,
 it's a freakin' two-way road. It'll be covered with geth armaments and some
 rocket troopers, so use the perpendicular-to-the-trajectory trick to improve
 evasion. If you check the map while doing this part, eventually the squad'll
 reach a weigh station -- a journal entry here will talk about investigating
 the mysterious signal. Look for a ground-floor staircase (Mako can't go down)
 to find some isolated survivors of the geth assault. One's daughter, Lizbeth
 Baynham, will have been left at ExoGeni and the commander is saddled with the
 task of finding her. Talk with Hossle to get the "Data Recovery" mission,
 too. Other than that, ride the Mako up the rest of the skyway, taking out
 a few more geth groups.

 NOTE: There are tunnels underneath the highway (running parallel), and that
 is where some geth are hiding. You may wonder where they are on the map since
 they don't appear themselves; that's the place. There's some kits and chests
 down there too, even in places the geth aren't -- look for tiny doorways to
 enter!

 The skyway connects directly to the facility, so if you're lazy, feel free to
 use the Mako cannon to destroy any geth (stalkers mostly) from that access
 point. Disembark and enter properly, taking out the rocket trooper. If you
 check the map, you'll see that this ground floor has four exit points, but
 three are blocked off by a barrier (denoted on the map by: *). One exit door
 (marked "D" on map) is just a drop-down point to a lower level, and that's
 the only one that can be taken.

 A mandatory scene with Lizbeth Baynham results in her giving her own ID card
 to help Shepard's squad power down the geth barrier; after, save her from
 some snarling varren. The exit to the stairway ("C") is on the other side of
 the tunnel, leading up to an angry krogan commando trying to access the site
 VI. Take him out, talk with the VI to learn the power source is coming from
 the geth ship, then proceed down the hallway until finding two geth coupling
 a cable from a claw. Further on, the team can assault the geth guarding the
 barrier.
 ___________________________________________________________________________
 OPTIONAL: Data Recovery

 If you talked with Hossle in the survivor's camp on the skyway, he'll have
 given this mission. His files are in the upper level's eastern section,
 accessible from the "A" path on the map. Three krogan mercenaries guard the
 area, however.
 ―――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――
 From the barrier area, take the left path upwards ("B") to a large garage
 crawling with geth. The room is divided into two parts with an arcing walkay
 connecting both sides. Each side has at least one destroyer, so be careful
 not to get a rocket up your tailpipe, eh? When the room is cleared, inspect
 a faraway server to get a repair ticket talking about the garage door. It
 turns into a guillotine if the PSI is in the 31-34 range, but works normally
 if lower. HMM! Turn on the 17, 11, and 5 PSI switches next to it, then try
 to operate the doors. Garage Door: 1, Geth Ship: 0.

 With the barrier gone, it's time to leave and find that dang Thorian. Our
 gal Baynham is waiting down there, too.

  [+2P] "I believe you."
  [+2R] "I don't care."

 The Thorian is under the Zhu's Hope colony, so it's time to make tracks back
 there!

PROTHEAN SKYWAY [REVISITED]
―――――――――――――――――――――――――――
 Similar to last time with more geth reinforcements, except now the stop back
 in the isolated refugee area is mandatory.

  [+24P] "What about the big picture?"
  [+25R] "I'll kill you first."

  [+2P] "Sounds logical."
  [+2R] "Can't take that chance."

  [+2P] Accept the special grenades add-on
  [+2R] "No."

 Talk to Juliana Baynham before leaving to get some the "Anti-Thorian Gas 1".
 Even if you refuse the grenade add-on, it's still received anyway to cover
 all bases.

ZHU'S HOPE [REVISITED]
――――――――――――――――――――――
 Now, for the Zhu's Hope portion, the Thorian mindtrip the colonists are on
 has turned them against Shepard's team. The only way to save them is to
 detonate a grenade equipped with the Anti-Thorian Gas 1 add-on. There are
 sixteen (16) colonists to save in all, and they will either have specific
 names or a generic "Colonist." THORIAN CREEPERS ARE NOT COLONISTS so don't
 waste your grenades on 'em. Killing some specific colonists may prevent their
 assignments from being finished, so watch what yer doin', please. Also, try
 to keep your allies back or they'll give retaliating fire!

 Anyway, for best effect, try to get two colonists in each grenade blast.
 There is one grenade refill in Zhu's Hope, near the spot where Fai Dan and
 the "rent-a-cop" were standing before, right near the tower entrance. (Fαbio
 Maltempi de Souza has notified me that melee attacks can work in place of
 grenades, so make sure you don't accidentally neutralize 'em!)

 [+2P/per] Colonist saved
 [+2R/per] Colonist slain

 After the colonists are saved, or not, fire up the crane controls in the main
 camp to move part of the dwellings aside.

THORIAN'S LAIR
――――――――――――――
 This is a mostly straightforward area based around the "Thorian Pit," which
 is basically a multi-tier shaft with an interior path rimming upwards. Now,
 to defeat the Thorian, one must shoot its neural nodes. The plant in question
 can create creepers and asari commandos (biotics specialists, as you may have
 guessed) from inside itself, and there will be a lot of both on the way up.

  [+2R] "I'll destroy you."
  [+2P] "Let the colonists go."

 If you find you can't go up any farther (door blocked), it's because you
 didn't destroy a neural node somewhere below. After all have been messed up,
 the Thorian is dislodged and Shiala, the commando the clones were based off
 of, will be revealed.

 [+9R] "I can't let you live."

 Anyway, the mission is essentially over at this time and the Normandy can now
 leave at leisure. If you haven't done some of the sidemissions here, they can
 still be done now (except Fai Dan's, or any special colonist who was slain
 accidentally).

NORMANDY
――――――――
 Back on board, there'll be a crew meeting and then Shepard can report to the
 Council.

 [+2R] "Don't be stupid!"
 [+2P] "I understood it."
 [+2P] "I help everyone."

 There are new XP-gaining dialogues with all crewmembers aboard except Tali.
 If you're looking to romance Liara, make sure to talk about the mutual
 attraction there. It's around this time that Garrus will talk about an old
 case he had where a doctor was harvesting organs grown in civilians; this
 opens up the assignment "Find Dr. Saleon.".

 Inspect the galaxy map to get an urgent transmission to be taken in the comm
 room. The Council will give some information that opens up the planet Virmire

PORT HANSHAN DOCKING BAY [MANDATORY]
――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――
 After exiting the Normandy, meet the welcome wagon near the resort entrance.

 [+2P] "We'll cooperate." (1st time this appears, not 2nd)
 [+2R] "I'm keeping my gun."

 Meet with Gianna Parasini inside afterwards, learning that the administrator
 Anoleis is the only one who can authorize Shepard to get to Peak 15, where
 a certain asari matriarch is. One of the teammates will suggest bringing
 Liara along for the upcoming journey, although it's optional. Talking with
 Maeko afterwards has a cluster of unique (easily missable) dialogue:

 [+2P] "Forget about it."
 [+2R] "Humiliating, wasn't it?"

 The elevator is past the lobby.

PORT HANSHAN [OPTIONAL]
―――――――――――――――――――――――
 • Agree to help the plaza shopkeep smuggle an item to start the assignment
   "Noveria: Smuggling".

 • On the hotel mezzanine, talk with Mallene Calis to start the assignment
   "Noveria: Espionage".

PORT HANSHAN [MANDATORY]
――――――――――――――――――――――――
 If you've snooped around the plaza and tried to enter the garage leading to
 Peak 15, you'll find that a Garage Pass is needed to continue. There are two
 ways to get a Garage Pass.

 • During the optional "Noveria: Smuggling" mission, after obtaining Opold's
   package, give it to administrator Anoleis, which gives a Garage Pass w/o
   any rigamarole. This is the quicker way but pretty boring.

 • The funner, bloodier way gets started by talking to administrator Anoleis,
   then leaving after his rude display. Gianna Parasini will comment on the
   way out that he's not the only one with a garage pass -- and after further
   dialogue -- says that the Lorik Qu'in at the hotel bar has one.

   Visit the mezzanine to find the despondant turrian, who says he'll give his
   garage pass in exchange for some files inside of his commandeered offices
   (Synthetic Insights). His pass will allow elevator function in the hallway
   en route to the garage. Some of Anoleis' goons will be standing in the
   lobby.

   [+8P] "You're here illegally."
   [+9R] "You can't take us."

   Charming/Intimidating them will make those two leave, but there are still
   others around the offices to take down -- piteous scrubs, every one of 'em!
   Lorik's files are in the 2F office. After downloading the files, there'll
   be a search party hanging about.

   [+2P] "They didn't give me a choice.
   [+2R] "Bring it on."

   No talkin' one's way out of this immensely satisfying bloodbath. Taking out
   lower enemies from the balcony helps too, generally. Return back to the
   plaza and speak with Gianna, who wants to have a drink with the commander
   before talking to Qu'in. She turns out to be an IA officer who wants the
   commander's help in making Qu'in testify against Anoleis. Talk with Lorik
   when ready.

   [+24P] "You'd be a hero."
   [+25R] "Damn right I will."

   If you can't convince him to testify, just trade the items for a garage
   pass and that's that!

 NOTE: There is a way to get max Paragon/Renegade points off Lorik's answers.
 After picking the "you should testify" option, use the Charm-based reply to
 get the points as stated above; after, stop the convo. Talk to him again and
 ask about the matriarch, which segues into the same conversation as before!
 Keep repeating this method to get as many points in either gauge as needed.

 • If you DID convince Lorik to testify, the garage pass is NOT received at
   once, and Shepard has to report back to Gianna back at the offices. There
   are two ways to get a garage pass out of this situation, and it depends on
   who is talked to first.

   - Talking to Anoleis before handing over evidence to Gianna will have its
     own devious outcome, in which the garage pass is on Anoleis' person
     after the cover-blowing event is chosen. [2280 XP]

     [+25R] "Gianna is investigating you."

     Shepard can then return the evidence to Lorik now that his threats are
     six feet under. If Shepard wants cash -- even though the need for the
     job is kaput -- the Charm/Intimidate options can be used to squeeze some
     dough outta the old turrian. [250c]

   - Talking to Anoleis before handing over evidence to Gianna, but without
     blowing her cover, can give a new blackmail angle. [2280 XP, 18600c]

     [+9R] "What do I get out of this?"

   - Talking to Gianna (without having tipped Anoleis off to her investigation)
     will hand over Lorik's evidence. After an arrest event, the garage pass
     automatically is in Shepard's possession.

     [+8P] "I convinced Qu'in."

     And there's an extra dialogue with Matsuo for taking the high road.

     [+2P] "He was a criminal."
     [+2R] "Your opinion doesn't matter."

 So, at long last, we have a garage pass! Use it to enter the garage, deal
 with the miniature geth ambush, then ride Mako out into the snowy...

ALEUTSK VALLEY
――――――――――――――
 It's more like the "Aleutsk Winding Road with Sheer Cliffs On One Side", but
 that's a mouthful. The road is winding but straightforward in design, with
 no deviations or side paths. Geth armatures and troopers will be on the road,
 but the most dangerous part are the long tunnels where some sections are
 cordoned off and the rocket launchers can try to snipe the Mako from afar.
 Evasion sucks in here, so the best way is to tough it out or "snipe" with the
 mako cannon even if the targets aren't in range (they can still be killed even
 if not visible, mind you). If y'wanna get fancy, the Mako thrusters can be
 used to jump over inbound projectiles -- very Evel Knievel!

 Besides that, there is a Lv1 Hazard outside, so don't stay out of the Mako
 too long!

 Further on, Shepard's crew can reach the damaged memory core,
 and can perform a manual repair or an omnigel repair (costs 100). It's easier
 to just do the latter, avoiding a rather stupid "minigame" which requires
 pushing in buttons and transferring them to other columns (one can fumble
 through that, but c'mon). When the core's reactivated, the station VI Mira
 will tell that the reactor, landlines and the tram systems are down. If you
 check the map, two passageways lead to the roof and reactor, respectively.

 I suggest going to the reactor first, since it's easy-peasy. Once there, the
 main path will wind down to the reactor, where the fuel lines can be repaired
 without much difficulty. A few stalkers and destroyers are in the area, so
 don't get hit with a rocket shell. Make sure to get the items on the upper
 observation deck before leaving for the roof area to find the landlines,
 which can be repaired with one console inspection [+800 XP] and a few dead
 rachni. The entrance to the trams should now be open.

 Visit the station with the salarian corpse and the option to repair the
 plasma purge, killing the rachni nearby. If you don't have someone who
 specializes in Electronics, simply open the tunnel doors and kill the rachni
 without compunction. The tram down the hall will lead to the Rift Station,
 which has been isolated since the matriarch arrived...spooky.

 After arriving on the tram, there's only the elevators open, and the one down
 to the Hot Labs is shut for the moment -- thus, it's down to the main level.
 At the bottom, talk with Captain Ventralis, who ends up giving the hot labs
 pass for upstairs.

  [+2P] "I'll see what I can do."
  [+2R] "I'm not here to help."

 A rachni attack occurs mid-conversation.

  [+2P] "No problem."
  [+2R] Don't help the survivors fight the rachni, then return for "thanks"

 In the medical bay, go down the "C" path on the map and meet with Zev Cohen,
 who's attending to some scientists affected by a biowar weapon. He says his
 notes are locked down in the quarantine labs and that Ventralis won't let
 him go down there. Talk with the captain and agree to take the risk, then
 head down the elevator to said area. The guard down there will only let the
 commander in if she talks about Ventralis' permission. To make the virus
 cure, a gauge comes up with a pointer going from left to right. The two
 fixed points denote the "safe range" -- pressing the prompted button within
 that range will further the mixture. After four button presses, the cure's
 made and a traitor in the refugees' midst will force a showdown. When she's
 through, take the cure back to Zev.

  [+24P] Dr. Cohen gets the cure

 Cohen will also give the maintenance pass to get through the quarantined
 barracks, and that's the entire reason we helped the sick here (blah blah
 altruism, etc.) Using Charm/Intimidate can get some free medigels from the
 good doctor, too.
 ____________________________________________________________________________
 NOTE: If you try to go north out of the medical bay, past the security, this
 will turn all the guards on the party (those ahead, and the three behind,
 plus Ventralis and his guards).
 ――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――
 Down in the hot labs, find Yaroslev Tartakovsky and talk to him about a
 neutron purge, which will rid the local area of its rachni infestation.
 Past the scene, get the purge codes from Yaroslev and put them in the Mira
 terminal at the back, which gives a timer of 120s.
 ____________________________________________________________________________
 NOTE: If you have done the Hot Labs portion before fighting Benezia -- yes,
 it can be the very last thing done (if at all) -- there will be a fight with
 some traitors back in the med bay. If you think this seems like an odd
 battle, just put it together: Saren is a stockholder in Peak 15, he's used
 his influence to put some operatives within the normal group...that'll make
 more sense, no? The civilians disappear in this outcome, so if you want to
 buy something (etc.), don't do the Hot Labs stuff immediately.
 ――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――
 Regardless, the main objective is in the lower area (with the quarantine
 lab, etc.). There may be a few rachni and soldiers down here but nothing too
 tough. Outside of Benezia's lab is a terminal that, when hacked, starts the
 "Missing Colony" mission. Head inside said lab to find the matriarch.

 There'll be a fight with her of course! She'll stay on the upper level near
 the rachni queen, firing her biotic projectiles -- unlike normal asaris,
 hers are especially powerful and the effects have long durations, so take
 cover immediately, preferably on something that can't be moved around by her
 biotics (like a railing, or go on the other side of the rachni queen cage!).
 As she summons cohorts into battle, her power level decreases. Make no
 mistake: if you get hit by one of the boss' projectiles, it can easily spell
 game over! There are four waves of enemies, interspersed with one dialogue
 event. Boss battle ends only when all foes are dead. [6625c, 1984 XP]

 Afterwards, the Rachni queen wants to be set free on the promise that she'll
 never attack humans again.

  [+24P] Let the queen leave.
  [+25R] Kill the queen

 Following the genocide or freeing, the only option left is returning to the
 tram station. Leave there to automatically appear back at...

NORMANDY
――――――――
 There'll be a scene and then a report back to the Council, although if the
 rachni queen was killed, these options won't be available.

 [+2P] "They won't."
 [+2R] "Should I guess?"
 [+2P] "Not these ones."

 It's usually this time where a confrontation over romance goes on, between
 Shepard, Liara, and the third love interest (who depends on the commander's
 gender). Shepard will have to choose who s/he's falling for, although the
 scene won't appear if the situation's so lop-sided that there isn't really
 a love triangle going on. This happens if you've ignored one person a lot,
 led someone else on more, etc. It's complicated! Following, there'll be new
 scenes with the crew (Liara in particular), so check 'em out.

 Vermire opens up after completing one plot world (Feros or Noveria); it's
 located in the Sentry Omega cluster.

LANDING ZONE
――――――――――――
 Kinda long but nonetheless straightforward, the Landing Zone is the watery
 canyon where the Normandy drops the Mako. The mission: take out the AA towers
 so the ship can get in closer! The gatehouses are marked on the in-game map,
 but before getting to them, there's geth, geth, and a little more geth. Need
 some geth? Y'got 'em. Most are normal types and armatures, but a colossus
 appears here and there.

 Anyway, the gatehouses are probably the most heavily fortified places, and
 the Mako often can't get through until the gates inside are raised (there
 is a sidestair for access). Get types, mostly rocket troopers and snipers,
 have set up camp. If your vehicle is hurting before arriving at one of these
 spots, heal up BEFORE going there. Why? Because you may experience what I
 did: the Mako gets heavily damaged in the crossfire, and as soon as you get
 in to leave, one more hit will spiral into a game over.

 After three gates, the team makes it to the salarian camp.

SALARIAN CAMP
―――――――――――――
 As a temporary respite from the journey, it's the calm before the storm. It's
 Wrex who gets uncomfortable after some dialogue, and it's up to Shepard to
 settle him down.

  [+28P] "These are your people!"
  [+09P] "Don't be so naive."
  [+25R] [Signal Ashley to kill Wrex.]
  [+25R] "[Shoot Wrex.]"
  [+02P] "Damn it."

 NOTE: If you did Wrex's "Family Armor" mission, you may not get the Paragon
 or Renegade choices to appear!

 This is a turning point for the party, the first of two, really. If you can't
 persuade Wrex to curb his anger and get it through his head that the krogan
 being bred are drones, then Wrex will end up dying. You _MUST_ use the Charm
 or Intimidate options to keep him alive; if you didn't build them up to a
 satisfactory level, he'll be feeding the vultures. [NOTE: You get all his
 equipment back in the event he dies, for reference.] You don't get any
 renegade points if Wrex dies while you try the diplomatic approach, i.e.
 the Chief shoots him.

 NOTE: If you did Wrex' Family Armor sidequest earlier, Shepard can mitigate
       the potentially fatal situation by using that event as a substitute for
       Charm/Renegade points.

 After the situation is resolved, check out Rentola's meager shop (it'll have
 the Armali Council license if you missed it back on the Citadel) and then
 see Kerrahe. He'll ask for one of Shepard's men -- Kaidan or Ashley -- to
 join his team and help coordinate the assault. Either one can do it so the
 best way to pick is the one used least in the main party (assuming they're
 both not the mainstays). The person picked can't be on Shepard's squad, of
 course. After a rousing speech that would make Patton weep, it's time to rip
 a new hole in Saren's base.

 NOTE: If you want to hack the stuff in the salarian camp, Shepard needs to
 have an Electronics/Decryption skill innately. There's no running around with
 a team here, and you can never return!

          /\_      /                         • UPLINK TOWER: Whereas the comm
          \____,__/                            tower was optional, this is a
                     mandatory stop toward the facility. There's a geth and a
 single krogan warrior guarding the place. The optional part is destroying the
 satellite uplink beacon on top of the roof. [+2P]

 • REFUELING PLATFORM: The last (optional) stop is in the bend of a catwalk,
   and is where some geth drones have come to roost. Destroy the flyers for
   the last bit of assistance. [+8P]

 There's very little geth activity besides the three listed spots, although a
 destroyer and some cohorts are on the catwalks past the uplink tower. Near
 the facility itself are some krogan warriors, but the resistance is fairly
 light...makes y'wonder what kinda boogeymen Kerrahe's team is fighting.

 The facility can be entered in two ways: through the normal catwalk or down
 below, through a lower corridor. By taking the upper way, the entrance into
 the base will have a keypad that hacks the alarms. A teammate mentions that
 they could further divert enemies towards the salarians, giving themselves
 a better chance at success...but really giving their allies a hard time.

  [+8P] "They've got enough trouble."
  [+9R] "They can handle it."

          To: Base Approach

 NOTE: You can't get into the basement portion ("west" of Menos Avot's jail
 cell on map) unless you enter from there. It'll be locked coming in from
 the other side.

 In the warehouse will be some destroyers and "Indoctrinated" salarians, who
 are simply really weak foes and not worth mentioning further. When you get
 to the elevator area, there'll be a side door that leads outside and back
 to the cells just passed. A captured soldier (Ganto Imness) is imprisoned
 there.

  [+2P] "I think I can trust you."
  [+2P] "I'm letting you out."
  [+9R] "Too risky."

 If you let him out, he simply leaves -- no betrayal whatsoever! After the
 meeting, another door with some indoctrinated salarians can be inspected.

  [+2P] "Let them out."
  [+2R] "Open the door and kill them."

 Back near the elevator, the stairs lead up to another holding chamber, this
 one (Menos Avot) seeming a lot odder.

  [+8P] "All right. Let him out."
  [+2R] "No."
  [+2R] "Sorry. I can't risk it."

 This freak WILL turn traitor if released, although if left in, he runs into
 a window and dies. Worst death ever? Judges say yes. The lower elevator will
 take one down into the labs. Doctor Droygas and his cohorts will be trying to
 find the genophage cure down here, but turn hostile when approached -- time
 to pull the plug on the operation. This area also leads to the comm tower and
 toward the breeding labs; the former should be visited first.

 Rana Thanoptis is hiding in the lobby of the comm tower, and says she just
 wants to get out before things turn worse. She can be pumped for info and
 killed, if you're a nogoodnik.

  [+9R] "Too late."

 The comm tower has a Prothean beacon to inspect but besides that, there's
 nothing much to say about the conversation with Sovereign. Return to the
 walkway leading to the breeding facility, and the bridge will automatically
 connect to give passage. Also, the way BACK will be barred at this point.
 Take down the three krogans near the drawbridge and start heading for the
 turret control tower. Some krogans and geth ghosts will be at its base, so
 be prepared (for rocket drones, too). The AA guns can be shut off from that
 control tower, taking the heat off Kirrahe's squad. Dispose of the geth who
 come down the elevator and up the stair, then take said lift out.

 This will lead up toward the facility's breeding trenches. Past the first
 one's minor geth forces, the Normandy will touch down in the plaza and get
 ready to set the nuke. It's at this time Shepard gets a transmission from
 the ally sent to Kirrahe's team -- s/he is pinned down and needs help! The
 ally brought with to set the nuke will stay behind, so s/he can't be taken
 along.

 Anyway, to reach the second team, go through the 2nd breeding trench and onto
 the roof. Midway, a geth ship will bring reinforcements towards the nuke
 site. Shepard will have to make a choice of which ally to save: the one at
 the AA towers or the one fending off the nuke site's horde. Note that whoever
 is chosen to be saved lives, and whoever isn't...won't.

  [+2P] "I'm sorry."
  [+2R] "Of course it was."

 If Shepard goes to the nuke site to help, there'll be a huge geth force made
 up of juggernauts, destroyers, and even a rare prime. The same is basically
 the same at the AA site. The one constant is that Saren shows up wherever
 Shepard is, and there'll be a mini boss fight with him. He's pretty easy but
 can shoot rockets, so don't blink or you might die.

  [+2P] "Join me." [Only if Shepard went to the AA gun site.]
  [+2R] "Sovereign will betray you." [Only if Shepard went to AA gun site.]

 After the fight, Virmire is automatically evacuated. Note that you don't get
 the fallen comrade's equipment back...for obvious reasons.

NORMANDY
――――――――
 After a heart-wrenching conversation about the fallen comrade, and then a
 Council report can be given.

  [+2P] "You need proof?"
  [+2R] "Screw you!"
  [+2P] "You have to trust me."

 The repercussions of Virmire's events can be felt in the crew's new dialogue.
 After, it'll be time to visit the next planet, Ilos. Unfortunately, Ambassador
 Idiot--err, Udina calls and says he wants the team to visit the Citadel first.
 This is done automatically, mind you.

_______________________________________________________________________________

 This is a rather short stop.

CITADEL TOWER [MANDATORY]
―――――――――――――――――――――――――
 The ambassador plays the politics card and impounds the Normandy, grounding
 Shepard and the crew on the Citadel.

  [+2R] "You son of a bitch."

 Afterwards, Captain Anderson radios and says he wants the commander to meet
 him in Flux, the wards nightclub/bar/casino.

WARDS [OPTIONAL]
――――――――――――――――
 • At the stairway into Flux, there'll be man (Keeler) who wants Shepard's
   help for some upcoming negotiations. This opens the "Negotiator's Request"
   assignment.

 • Also near Flux, down in the lower mezzanine, Charles Saracino will be
   talking with an "Earth First" crowd. Talking with him starts the tiny
   "Our Own Worst Enemy" assignment.

WARDS [MANDATORY]
―――――――――――――――――
 In Flux, Captain Anderson will want to assist Shepard in wiggly out from
 underneath Udina's thumb. The options are for the captain to either break
 into Udina's office and unlock the Normandy's grounding via computer, or
 to work some magic at Citadel control. Whichever path is taken -- they both
 lead to the same conclusion -- return to the Normandy and it'll be blastoff
 time. NOTE: You won't be able to get back to the Citadel after this event so
 clear any lingering assignments before going -- this includes quartermaster
 licenses, some of which are unavailable after this event (buy 'em all!).

NORMANDY
――――――――
 WARNING: Ilos is the "point of no return," and after the events start, there
 will be no way to leave for sidequests, get anything from shops, or other
 fun excursions. Do all that before going!

 There'll be some crew-related dialogue about the jailbreak but nothing that
 has lasting impact...until one heads to Ilos. Before landing, there will be
 a chance for Shepard to consummate a relationship with whichever crewmember
 was chosen as the romantic interest. Just pick the obvious answers and the
 room will be fogging up pretty soon. But work must come before playtime, and
 soon it's down to the planet...

        ―――――       ―|_________|
                                     Through the ancient forest, geth shock
 troopers and a destroyer are holed up around the central courtyard. There's
 a small elevator nearby that connects to an upper ledge with a single chest,
 but hey, free stuff's free stuff. When the nearby geth sappers are defeated,
 take the "C" elevator to leave.

 This lower area is the ruins security station, which is basically one large
 chamber and the titular station, on the 2F up a ramp. But getting to it
 won't be that easy: it's crawling with geth: destroyers, some primes, and
 a few normal footmen. And they're not going to hide behind kinetic shields
 or anything -- they advance in a group, so be prepared with grenades or any
 sweet biotics. If you need help, the armature repair stations (hackable) can
 drop an armature in...only these ones are programmed to fight FOR you rather
 than AGAINST you. O, marvelous technology! View the security panel in the
 station, then leave via the 1F walkway -- this leads back to an elevator
 that returns to the plaza. Then it's down to Mako and the Archives!

 Now, the tunnel to the Archives is the definition of "long," and is the
 longest one in the game actually. There are a few geth patrols inside but
 for the most part, it's like a smooth ride down the Ventura Highway. Toward
 the end, there'll be a barrier erected and the only option is to ride a
 nearby elevator. Take it and find the VI control (Vigil) for the Archives.

  [+2P] "That's monstrous!"
  [+2R] "It was necessary."

 Down the main tunnel, the Water Ruins are accessible. Untrue to its name,
 there's no labyrinthine mazes to go through -- just more straightforwardness.
 Hydroplane through the trench run until the end (there's minor geth patrols
 en route) to find the Conduit, which links back to the Citadel. There'll be
 a small 0:40 timer to reach it in time, so just make sure to avoid enemies
 on the way.

 R.I.P. Mako! The Presidium's seen better days to be sure. You'll want to
 loot the medkit at the tower's base, 'cause once the team goes up the
 elevator, it'll be stopped and it'll be time to moonwalk across the vertical
 side of the tower!

MAINTENANCE SHAFT
―――――――――――――――――
 The first exterior section of this final level is basically a long series
 of interconnected, roofless rooms...or so it appears on the map. Geth troops
 on the way up consist of normal scrubs and rocket troopers, although there's
 an annoying bumrush tagteam of a krogan warlord and geth destroyer.

EXHAUST PLAIN
―――――――――――――
 Similar bland layout to the maintenance shaft, but with a mixup in enemies.
 The same ones that appeared in the first outer section still do. Toward the
 halfway point, a geth dropship appears and starts to let some rocket troops
 and footmen in. Shepard can quickly maneuver to the disengaged defense
 turrets and put 'em back online (one requires the Electronics skill). This
 will send the dropship off faster, which means less foes to fight. Got a
 crappy Electronics skill? Then just defeat the entire crew of the ship first.
 [This area is a good place to save if y'haven't yet, since the next portion
 can kill a team, even if they have decent cover, and who wants to redo all
 this stuff again?]

 As a funny bonus, if you've never shot a charging enemy with Snowblind Rounds
 before, do it: they turn to ice and start sliding with their momentum, then
 explode! It's like a self-toboggan.

EXTERIOR DEFENSE GRID
―――――――――――――――――――――
 The layout of the third and final portion is a little more complex, and the
 hardest of them all...although a properly equipped party won't have too much
 of a trial here. If you check the map, you'll see there's a large "turret
 field" on the left side and a smaller parallel corridor to the right.

 The turret area has...well, a bunch of turrets, four to be exact. Their
 shells can really perforate ally defenses, and a few hits will bring about
 KO time. Use the perpendicular trenches -- which usually have a few geth
 inside -- to get a foothold in the area, and take 'em out one by one.

 Should you not want to bother with the turrets, the eastern parallel corridor
 gives an easy out near the start. It's easier to navigate and has fewer foes:
 a couple of krogans. At the end of this area is the emergency hatch into the
 Council chambers!

CITADEL TOWER
―――――――――――――
 The interior has been put through the ringer, but the tiered area works to
 Shepard's advantage. Each landing will have planters and other things that
 give easy cover, or if that doesn't work well, simply use the stairway. At
 the top near the council podiums...is Saren.

  [+24P] "That's not true."
  [+25R] "It's never too late!"

 There are two outcomes to the conversation with Saren. If you do it the
 regular way, there'll be a small fight with him flying around on his hover
 thing. The fight's rather easy, but he can still shoot rocket shells and
 use Overload (affects current weapon only). His health won't recharge but
 his shields certainly will. He won't move around as much if Shepard is right
 nearby, however. The alternative to the conversation is using the
 Charm/Intimidate options, which can persuade him to commit suicide and thus
 skip the battle listed above. It may be the preferred alternative, since the
 battle gives no XP, just a medigel after winning.

 When the battle's done, activate the control panel

  [+8P/+9R] "Concentrate on Sovereign"
  [+28P] "Save the Council."
  [+29R] "Let the Council die."

 FINAL BOSS: Geth Saren
 ――――――――――――――――――――――
 No matter what happens after the conversation with Saren, he'll be reborn as
 a half-machine, half-turian, purebred murder machine! He's like a geth ghost
 on steroids, capable of pinballing around the room at lightning speed and
 popping off some rockets as quick as y'can blink. The most opportune time to
 attack is when he's attached to one place and firing off multiple salvoes of
 rockets; he won't move around for that. The cover in the pit is pretty thin,
 and there's no place to hide 100% of the time. When one-third of his health
 is gone, he will fire a rocket with each quick movement.

 If you want to stay alive, keep mobile! If you can't fire accurately while
 strafing, that's bad. If you're trying to strafe where there's little room,
 that's also bad. However, he becomes more predictable after the cutscene so
 finding cover (but not backing up to it) can be just fine.

             )_(   |/     \|(_______/  (_______/|/    )_)(______/ (_)

 Repercussions of the attack on Sovereign can be felt afterwards, although
 nothing really important. Try saving the Council once, then throw 'em to the
 dogs the next.

 Following the credits, it's back to the main screen! However, when starting
 a new game, you can select the cleared ID and start with things previously
 obtained: credits, equipment, etc. Paragon/Renegade points DO NOT carry over,
 however, and abilities will have to be relearned (all talent points carry
 over, though; they just need to be allocated).

UNCHARTED WORLDS                                                         [UNCH]
_______________________________________________________________________________

 An uncharted world is any place that has no mandatory stop, such as locales
 that are uncivilized or ignored. Areas are broken down like so:

                 Galaxy -> Cluster -> System -> Planet

 But since all places have the same galaxy (Milky Way), that part isn't of
 any real interest. Initial clusters already open are:

    • Serpent Nebula      • Argos Rho             • Gemini Sigma
    • Hawking Eta         • Attican Beta          • Kepler Verge
    • Horse Head Nebula   • Armstrong Nebula      • Voyager Cluster
    • Exodus Cluster      • Hades Gamma           • Artemis Tau

 Some places are unlocked during the course optional assignments, or during
 events on some planets (such as info consoles). Not all planets can be
 explored in the Mako, but some can be "surveyed" from the ship and special
 items gained because of it. This will be noted below. Citadel is the only
 thing in Widow system (Serpent Nebula) and not worth making a chart for.

ASSIGNMENTS                                                              [ASSO]
_______________________________________________________________________________
―――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――
 Assignments are optional miniquests Shepard can get by talking with ordinary
 people on the street, and while the payoffs may be paltry compared to, say,
 surveying minerals on uncharted planets, they offer free experience when no
 fighting's to be found. They'll be listed in the (general) order they can be
 done in. I'm just giving an overview of the assignments; the in-game info
 gives a detailed play-by-play on every step, so it's hard to completely lose
 one's bearings.

 NOTE: Most EXP/credits rewards can vary slightly.

CITADEL: ASARI CONSORT
――――――――――――――――――――――
 Unlock: Talk with consort's attendant, then agree to help consort when she
         asks to see the commander.

 General Septimus is spreading lies about the consort, and he's found in the
 Wards bar "Chora's Den" drinking his sorrows away. Just keep picking the
 "northeast" decision on the answer wheel to make him get his act together.
 He'll then ask to have Shepard deliver a datapad to Xeltan in the Elcor
 embassy, which will exonerate Sha'ina of the slander. [This starts the
 assignment "Xeltan's Complaint."

 After successfully dissuading Septmius from his lies, return to the consort
 for the reward.

 [+2P] "Glad to help."
 [+2R] "Let's talk payment."

 The reward is 120 XP and credits, and if you answered "That's it?" there'll
 be an even sweeter surprise. Kinda. Maybe something happened? Also, no matter
 what, Sha'ira will give a trinket to the commander, which comes into play
 later.

CITADEL: XELTAN'S COMPLAINT
―――――――――――――――――――――――――――
 Unlock: During course of "Asari Consort," agree to help Septimus out again

 Xeltan is the elcor worrying in the diplomat's office. If Septimus gave the
 "Evidence for Xeltan" over, which happens if Shepard agreed to be the
 delivery boy (or girl), just talk to him

 [+2P] "Don't worry."

 Reward is 12 XP and 30 credits. Yawn.

CITADEL: SCAN THE KEEPERS
―――――――――――――――――――――――――
 Unlock: After the 1st Council meeting, talk with Chorban on the mezzanine,
         and agree to help him when the option arrives.

 Chorban is trying to gather readings from the Citadel's keepers, and if
 Shepard helps, a [Scanner] is received. There are twenty-one of the buggers
 around the station to find, and for each found, some XP and credits are
 obtained (minute amounts). To scan a keeper, simply approach it and use the
 option.

 #01 - [Citadel Tower] - Near where Shepard met Chorban
 #02 - [Citadel Tower] - Near where Rear Admiral Kohaku stands
 #03 - [Citadel Tower] - Mid-level, in a covered walkway on one side
 #04 - [Citadel Tower] - Top-level, side passage near Council platform
 #05 - [Presidium] ----- By an Avina terminal
 #06 - [Presidium] ----- Near Wards Access door
 #07 - [Presidium] ----- Room near Executor Pallin's office & embassy lounge
 #08 - [Presidium] ----- Isolated hallway stemming from embassy lounge
 #09 - [Presidium] ----- Volan/Elcor Embassy
 #10 - [Presidium] ----- Emporium's backroom
 #11 - [Presidium] ----- Near Emporium, on sidewalk
 #12 - [Presidium] ----- Near entrance to consort's chambers
 #13 - [Wards] --------- Requisition Officer's chamber
 #14 - [Wards] --------- C-Sec car lot (lower wards)
 #15 - [Wards] --------- Flux' casino
 #16 - [Wards] --------- Alley behind Flux
 #17 - [Wards] --------- Dead end by clinic
 #18 - [Wards] --------- Access tunnel
 #19 - [Wards] --------- C-Sec's traffic control room
 #20 - [Wards] --------- Upper market area
 #21 - [Docking Bay] --- On walkway near Normandy

 Sometimes the keeper in the Volus/Elcor embassy doesn't appear. Should this
 happen, advance a few mandatory events and retry (the mission can still be
 finished before leaving Citadel for the 1st time).

CITADEL: PRESIDIUM PROPHET
――――――――――――――――――――――――――
 Unlock: After 1st Council meeting, talk with C-Sec Officer by Preaching Hanar

 In the Presidium, near the Citadel Tower, there is a C-Sec officer arguing
 with a Hanar, who doesn't want to pay for an evangelical permit. Buying the
 Hanar said license (150 credits) resolves the dispute, although by putting
 off the confrontation and waiting until one's Charm/Intimidate skills are
 high enough, there are more useful options to select.

   [+8P] "This is unworthy of you."
   [+8R] "There's trouble anyway."
   [+8P] "It's not causing trouble."
   [+8R] "This is dangerous."

 The C-Sec Officer usually gives a [Medigel] for helping.

CITADEL: JAHLEED'S FEARS / JAHLEED AND CHORBAN / JAHLEED SET FREE
―――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――
 Unlock: Talk with Jahleed in the C-Sec building's west wing

 This Volus thinks his partner is trying to kill him, and after investigating
 a smidge, it's learned that he works with Chorban, the guy who asked Shepard
 to scan the keepers for him. If Shepard agreed to help, Chorban appears in
 the Wards' lower markets. Give him the third degree to learn Jahleed actually
 stole info instead of helping disseminate it.

   [+8P] "No more." (Only if Chorban was talked to previously)
   [+8R] "You're not leaving." (Only if Chorban wasn't talked to previously)

 Note that if Shepard didn't agree to help scan before, Chorban's armed thugs
 will attack here. Afterwards, it'll be up to Shepard to spare his life or
 take it one fell swoop. Either way, the last step is talking to Jahleed.

   [+8P] "Then do it legally."
   [+2R] "Take it back!"

 Note that Shepard can extort 150 Credits/100 EXP out of Jahleed by telling
 him to stop, sending away the C-Sec officer that snoops around, then saying
 s/he'll help scan. [The option to help Jahleed scan plays even if Chorban
 already gave one, but only if Shepard told Chorban to stop scanning.] Patching
 things up between Jahleed & Chorban, or turning Jahleed in, gives an inferior
 reward of 100 XP and 30 credits.

CITADEL: REPORTER'S REQUEST
―――――――――――――――――――――――――――
 Unlock: Talk with Emily Wong near the stairway to Flux (Lower Wards)

 Emily is an investigative journalist and is looking around to unearth some
 corruption in the Citadel. Agree to help her in her cause to start the ball
 rolling. After defeating Fist, pick up the "Optical Storage Disc" laying on
 the floor and bring it back to Emily.

 [+2P] "I can offer more."
 [+2R] "You owe me more."

 Reward: 480 XP, 140c if the renegade/paragon path is chosen; 140 XP, 280c if
 the neutral path is chosen.

CITADEL: RITA'S SISTER (IS SAFE)
――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――
 Unlock: Talk to Rita in Flux' bar and agree to talk sense into her sister

 Rita's sister Jenna is working in Chora's Den as a C-Sec informant, and Rita
 is awfully worried for her safety. Talk to Jenna in the Den, then talk with
 Chellick on the way out of the bar -- he says to meet him at C-Sec. Do so
 to learn Jenna's part of an undercover operation.

 [+2P] "You don't need her."
 [+2R] "Pathetic."

 Agree to help Chellick on the mod deal by going to the lower markets and
 meeting with the arms seller.

 [+8P] "Sure."
 [+9R] "You heard me!"

 Choosing to withhold Jax' payment will initiate a fight with him and his two
 bodyguards, so be prepared for that. Talk with Chellick afterwards to get
 the reward [210 XP, 280c if Jax died; +20 Omni-Gel, 224 XP, 280c, Phasic
 Rounds II if gotten legally.] Optionally, talk to Rita to see just how much
 she's enjoying her sister working alongside her...

CITADEL: THE FAN
――――――――――――――――
 Unlock: Talk to Conrad Vermer

 Conrad is standing in the hallway of the Wards' upper markets, and the
 mission is composed of three encounters.

 #1 - He wants an autograph. This is initially available
 #2 - He wants a photograph. Occurs after returning to Citadel after leaving
 #3 - He wants to join Spectre. Occurs after completing at least one plot world

 When the third encounter comes up, Conrad will say the he should be signed on
 as another Spectre to help Commander Shepard out.

  [+8P] "There are other fights."
  [+9R] "There are no good fights."

 Note that dismissing Conrad and making him storm off will actually get him
 killed -- just listen to an elevator news item about his attempted "proving".
 It's the type of thing that makes you wonder why anyone would let him have
 kids! The only way to keep him safe is to charm him (send him back to his
 family) or intimidate him with a gun (to simulate what battle was like). If
 he talks about standing up for humanity, he's not going to live that long...
 Successfully completing the mission gives a 560 XP reward.

CITADEL: SCHELLS THE GAMBLER
――――――――――――――――――――――――――――
 Unlock: Approach Flux after doing the Garrus/Michel event in the clinic

 Approach Flux to see Schells thrown out of the nightclub. Talk with him to
 learn Doran suspected him of cheating at quasar. Shepard can then agree to
 help him test his device. There are two ways to win this mission.

 #1 - Give the device to Doran. Ask for payment to get 160 XP and 280c, then
      talk with the cheater to end the mission with finality (as well as
      changing title to "Schells' Scanner Given Away").

 #2 - Scan the machines for Schells. Five wins are needed to finish correctly,
      and a win is counted as winning more money than was bet. This means on
      low-stakes quasar, an 18-21 score is necessary to win. Bring it back to
      him afterwards to get the reward (160 XP, 280c). This changes the
      mission title to "Schells Has His Data".

 Note that if you attain seven wins with the device, Doran becomes suspicious
 enough to take back all Shepard's (meager) winnings and confiscate the li'l
 device. This changes the mission to "Schells' Scanner is Taken" and gives no
 reward.

CITADEL: SIGNAL TRACKING
――――――――――――――――――――――――
 Unlock: After meeting with Council for first time

 When access to the Wards casino is given, look for one that is marked as a
 "suspicious gambling machine". Someone in the party will start a trace, which
 leads to (1) the wards access corridor (2) the financial district bank (3)
 the emporium's backroom. Upon reaching the backroom, there'll be a sentient
 computer who initiates a self-destruct sequence. If Shepard runs away, s/he
 dies, so no, it's not bluffing. The disarm sequence is YXYAXAA. This gives
 240c for not being blown to smithereens.

CITADEL: HOMECOMING
―――――――――――――――――――
 Unlock: After Tali joins the party

 Samesh Bhatia is the man standing in front of the embassies, and he's irate
 that his wife's body (she died on Eden Prime) is being withheld by a man
 named Bosker, who hangs out in the embassy lounge.

 [+8P] "This isn't right."
 [+9R] "I'm releasing the body."
 [+8P] "This is important."
 [+9R] "This is war."

 The only way to resolve the issue is to have a Charm/Intimidate stat high
 enough (about five) so that the blue- and red-colored options appear on the
 answer wheel. Reward is 140 XP.

UNC: DISTRESS CALL (STRANGE READINGS)
―――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――
 Unlock: Scan Metgos in Argos Rho's Hydra cluster.

 The mission is initially received as "Strange Readings" by snooping around on
 one of Udina's laptops, and later changes to this mission title. Scanning the
 planet will show a distress signal, allowing the team to land on said planet.
 It has a Lv2 planetary hazard, though, which means staying out of the mako
 for too long will have drastic consequences. Go down and locate the
 transponder beacon (already marked on map) to find it's really a geth ambush!
 The mako's cannon should be able to dispose of the critters easily, but
 remember that XP payouts are less this way.

UNC: MISSING MARINES
――――――――――――――――――――
 Unlock: Talk with R.A. Kohaku after becoming a Spectre

 The rear admiral is in the Citadel Tower, and has been stonewalled by the
 bureaucracy on what happened to his men in the Artemis Tau cluster's Sparta
 System. Land on Edolus and find the distress beacon, only to find it's been
 placed near a thresher maw's nest. Defeat the maw (it can OHKO at close-range
 so keep your distance and use the Mako cannon) and examine a corpse, then
 report back to Kohaku to finish the mission. [400 XP, 1987c]

UNC: PRIVATEERS
―――――――――――――――
 Unlock: Talk with Garoth after becoming a Spectre, find Willem first, or
         decrypt computer in Synthetic Insights office (Noveria)

 Like Kohaku, Garoth is also found in the Citadel's tower. His brother's ship
 disappeared and he needs help finding out Willem's whereabouts.

   [+2P] "I'll do it."
   [+2R] "Forget it."

 In the Horse Head Nebula's Strenuus system, look for the MSV Majesty hidden
 near planet Xawin; once it's scanned, said planet can be landed on. The base
 is already marked in the north and, expectedly, has outer defenses to take
 care of first. Defeat the motley cast of privateers inside and locate the
 corpse of Willem on the second floor. Now's the time to return to Garoth.

  [+2P] "This must be hard on you."
  [+2R] "You were fooling yourself."

UNC: HOSTILE TAKEOVER
―――――――――――――――――――――
 Unlock: Talk with Helena Blake after becoming a Spectre

 Helena Blake is standing near the Citadel's Presidium-district emporium. She
 is "well-acquainted" with some crime bosses and is ready to betray their trust
 if Shepard will kill them for her.

  [+8P] "No. I won't do this."
  [+2R] "I'll do it."
  [+2R] "Not a problem."

 Even if y'agree not to take the job, you still get the coordinates, so no
 reason to not get some extra killing done! The two crime lords are found in
 yet-unopened locations: (1) Planet Mavingon in Gemini Sigma's Han system (2)
 Planet Klensal in Hades Gamma's Dis system. Mavigon's facility is in a Lv2
 Cold Hazard, and is like a normal research facility; it has turrets guarding
 outside. Klensal's tundra base is actually a mine entrance guarded by some
 mercenaries. [966 XP, 57333c]

 With the two scumbags six feet under, it's time to meet Helena in the Horse
 Head Nebula's Fortuna system (planet Amaranthine), at the research outpost
 in the south.

  [+28P] "Walk away."
  [+09R] "Disband the group."
  [+02P] "You're under arrest."
  [+02R] "You better come clean."

 Using the Charm/Intimidate options convinces Helena to disband the newly-won
 syndicate, while telling her she's headed for jail kickstarts a big shootout
 with her and her clan. She uses biotics but the rest are mostly scrubs with
 decent weaponry. [966 XP, 57333c]


UNC: TURIAN INSIGNIAS
―――――――――――――――――――――
 Unlock: Find any one Turian Insignia

 These insignias are found throughout the Milky Way galaxy, either by doing a
 planetary scan from the Normandy or inspecting something on foot. If specific
 info isn't given below, it means a simple planetary scan is required. Finding
 thirteen completes the mission, but there are more around so it doesn't turn
 into too hard of a hunt.

 #01 - Argos Rho -> Hydra -> Canrum
 #02 - Argos Rho -> Hydra -> Metgos (planet's surface)
 #03 - Artemis Tau -> Athens -> Pharos
 #04 - Hawking Eta -> Century -> Presrop (planet's surface)
 #05 - Armstrong Nebula -> Vamshi -> Pregel
 #06 - Armstrong Nebula -> Vamshi -> Maji (planet's surface)
 #07 - Hades Gamma -> Antaeus -> Trebin (planet's surface)
 #08 - Hades Gamma -> Dis System -> Raysha
 #09 - Horse Head Nebula -> Fortuna -> Meganlis
 #10 - Horse Head Nebula -> Fortuna -> Amaranthine (planet's surface)
 #11 - Horse Head Nebula -> Strenuus -> Xawin (planet's surface)
 #12 - Maroon Sea -> Caspian -> Antida
 #13 - Maroon Sea -> Vostok -> Nodacrux (planet's surface)
 #14 - Kepler Verge -> Newton -> Ontarom (planet's surface)
 #15 - Voyager Cluster -> Amazon -> Cybin
 #16 - Voyager Cluster -> Amazon -> Agebinium (planet's surface)
 #17 - Styx Theta -> Acheron -> Carbonaceous Asteroid

 Note that asteroids do not appear on the map initially and must be scanned
 when the system reticle is moved around. They appear as 'unknown' and can
 be located by spying a faint twinkling on the map.

UNC: VALUABLE MINERALS
――――――――――――――――――――――
 Unlock: Survey any one light metal, heavy metal, rare earth, or gas.

 After becoming a Spectre and having the galaxy on a string, Shepard can go
 around and scan planets -- from afar or in the mako -- to claim resources for
 the Alliance. This is a very long sidequest but ultimately very rewarding, as
 many deposits can give gobs of credits (toward the end). There are four
 categories: light metals, heavy metals, rare earths, and gasses, sixty-six
 things to find in all.

 If more specific info on the minerals' location is not given, it means they
 are scanned from space.

 LIGHT METALS

 #01 - Gemini Sigma -> Ming -> Parag
 #02 - Hades Gamma -> Farinata -> Rocky Asteroid
 #03 - Voyager Cluster -> Amazon -> Agebinium (western magnesium deposit)
 #04 - Voyager Cluster -> Amazon -> Agebinium (northwest beryllium deposit)
 #05 - Armstrong Nebula -> Gagarin -> Antirumgon
 #06 - Armstrong Nebula -> Gagarin -> Rayingri [northeast titanium deposit]
 #07 - Armstrong Nebula -> Hong -> Treagir
 #08 - Armstrong Nebula -> Tereshkova -> Antibaar [southeast lithium deposit]
 #09 - Armstrong Nebula -> Tereshkova -> Antibaar [northwest magnesium depst]
 #10 - Armstrong Nebula -> Vamshi -> Maji [northwest magnesium deposit]
 #11 - Armstrong Nebula -> Vamshi -> Maji [eastern beryllium deposit]
 #12 - Armstrong Nebula -> Grissom -> Zaherux
 #13 - Armstrong Nebula -> Grissom -> Solcrum [southeast magnesium deposit]
 #14 - Hawking Eta -> Century -> Canctra
 #15 - Artemis Tau -> Sparta -> Elodus  [southeast lithium deposit]

UNC: MISSING SURVEY TEAM
――――――――――――――――――――――――
 Unlock: Listen to it play in a Citadel elevator

 Citadel elevators have news snippets, and sometimes they can start an
 assignment somewhere. This one is in Hades Gamma's Antaeus system, down on
 planet Trebin. Visit the research base to find it deserted, and look around
 for an excavation site. Inside, explore a little to find all the researchers
 were turned into husks by some ancient technology. Take 'em out! It's a lot
 easier if the team retreats into the entrance tunnel, forcing them into there
 as a bottleneck. More come from the two doors following. [550 XP, 110c]

UNC: LOST FREIGHTER
―――――――――――――――――――
 Unlock: Board the MSV Worthington in the Gemini Sigma's Ming sector

 The ship is floating in orbit and can be boarded. There aren't any foes in
 the cargo hold but some canisters are booby-trapped, so shoot 'em from afar.
 Locate and read all three logs to make the crazed woman Julia appear; she
 attacks, naturally. Afterwards, the player can disconnect Jacob from his
 life support, or leave him as a vegetable, but it doesn't influence anything.

UNC: HOSTAGE
――――――――――――
 Unlock: Enter Hades Gamma's Farinata system

 The allied commander tells Shepard that the MSV Ontario is floating dead in
 space, and inside is a bunch of biotics holding a chairman hostage. Once
 inside, and battle is initiated, there'll be a 3:00 timer to defeat the
 biotics and find the hostage. FROM EXPERIENCE, I have learned that it's a bad
 idea to save once the timer starts because a high Charm/Intimidate skill is
 needed to save the chairman.

  [+2P] "You don't have to die."
  [+2R] "Take them down!"
  [+8R] "You need Burns!"
  [+9R] "Don't be stupid." (the Intimidate one, not the first one)

 Picking "You need Burns" or "Don't be stupid." will mitigate the situation
 and Burns won't die; any other option leads to Burns dying and the biotics
 leader and his two followers going for the jugular. There'll be a message
 next time the galaxy map is accessed, either praising or regretting the
 situation that unfolded.

UNC: ESPIONAGE PROBE
――――――――――――――――――――
 Unlock: Enter the Voyager Cluster's Amazon system

 The 5th Fleet general wants the commander to help locate and disarm a nuke
 that was sent up in a probe years ago, and it's down on Agebinium. Go down
 on the planet and find the mineshaft where the "homing beacon" is coming
 from. In a dead-end chamber, the nuke is found...but someone locks the team
 inside!

 Now, there's 0:10 before the nuke goes off, but Shepard can disable the
 three hardpoint sections by using the typical button-input panel that is
 used for surveys and the like -- this one is just twice as long. For people
 who suck at this, one can expend 100 omni-gel to do each part manually (but
 only if they fail once).

 After disabling the bomb, take the only way out onto the hillside. Elias and
 his followers will have stolen the Mako and brought it to their camp! There's
 an easy way to go about this and it's to go the roundabout way down to the
 ditch surrounding their camp, then enter the Mako and blow 'em all to kingdom
 come. Fighting on foot is possible too, but they have the advantage...and
 that ain't good. But one question remains: why be so close to a nuclear
 explosion in the first place? They're clearly idiots in the first place.

UNC: GETH INCURSIONS
――――――――――――――――――――
 Unlock: Visit the Armstrong Nebula

 Commander Hackett wants to enlist help to destroy four geth outposts on four
 separate planets in the nebula.

 Gagarin ----> Rayingri (Overrun Research Outpost)
 Hong -------> Casbin (Geth Outpost)
 Tereshkova -> Antibaar (Geth Outpost)
 Vamshi -----> Maji (Geth Outpost)

 The research has some husks in it, then the geth attack; after exiting, some
 more are there to take care of. Casbin's geth outpost is situated in a valley,
 which is good for sniping opportunities (even in Mako), although a dropship
 gives reinforcements. Antibaar's furious blizzard can make things difficult
 when aiming, so that may actually be the hardest of the four outposts to take
 down (it also has a colossus). Maji's outpost is actually a bunch of towers
 strung through a mountain range, and that's not too good for the vehicle's
 cannon trajectory. Either way, bring some omni-gel for healing purposes
 because a bunch of geth can still perforate the Mako if given the chance.

 When the 4th base is destroyed, a teammate picks up a signal originating from
 somewhere inside the star cluster. Go to the Grissom System (now opened) and
 find the Solcrum moon orbiting Notanban. The base here is in a valley and
 the colossi guarding it are easily avoided. The interior is fashioned like a
 grounded mercenary/pirate ship, not a typical base. Some rocket-slinging
 juggernauts are inside so proceed with caution!

 Following, hack the ground-floor terminal to get information on the geth.
 Talking with Tali on the Normandy will bring up an event where she wants to
 use the geth data on her Pilgrimage.

  [+1P] "All right"
  [+1P] "Take it."
  [+1R] "I can't take that risk."

 NOTE: The little piece with Tali is part of the "Tali's Pilgrimage" quest,
 which is so abrupt it doesn't really deserve its own section.

UNC: DEAD SCIENTISTS
――――――――――――――――――――
 Unlock: Visit the Kepler Verge

 Admiral Hackett informs the commander of some scientists who've been dying
 lately, and they're all connected to a specific project on Akuze. The last
 remaining scientist is supposedly on Ontarom... Break into the underground
 bunker there (mercs guard the outdoors) to find more hired help inside. This
 can be a HARD battle if the player is just starting out, and I remember the
 first time I played, I barely finaggled my way past. The key (for generally
 under-equipped, under-levelled people) is to force the enemy into the
 bottleneck corridor connecting the first room to the second. Did I mention
 that most of the enemies health regenerates? Yeah.

 In the back room, a mercenary is about to execute a scientist.

  [+2R] [Shoot him]
  [+8P] "This isn't justice."
  [+9R] "Let me do it."

 Note that you have to have a pretty high Charm/Intimidate stat to resolve
 the situation without both dying. If Toombs is given the chance to tell what
 happened to his unit, even if he dies, the scientist can still be arrested.

UNC: FATHER KYLE
――――――――――――――――
 Unlock: Visit Hawking Eta

 This mission is initially received as "Strange Transmission," from hacking
 one of the laptops in Executor Pallin's office within the Citadel embassies;
 or, hacking a terminal in Noveria's Peak 15 reactor area (upper level).
 Admiral Hackett will want Shepard to deal with an old acquaintance who has
 set up a cult of biotic followers in Hawking Eta.

  [+2P] "Maybe I can reason with him."

 Either way, down on the surface of Presrop (a moon), the biotic compound is
 marked. This is a fun mission, actually.

 • The compound is composed of a fixed trailer and an underground bunker.
   Approach the bunker and answer politely to be let into the bunker; answer
   angrily and hack the doorpad to start a fight with the cultists inside.

   [+2P] "He needs my help."
   [+2R] "He'll get you all killed!"

 • Down in the bunker is a bunch of cultists. They won't attack if Shepard's
   squad was invited in before, but they definitely will if any belligerent
   action had been taken previously. [If the base cultists were slain, the
   bunker is locked; open it by finding the console in the base.] Also,
   unlike some other places, the commander can fire upon the "good" biotics
   and they'll retaliate, rather than the commander being unable to fire
   completely.

 • At the back of the base is Father Kyle.

   [+8P] "You can't help them now."
   [+9R] "Surrender or they all die!"
   [+2P] "I tried to help you."
   [+2R] "Enough crazy talk."

 If Shepard had killed cultists previously, there's no hope for reconciliation
 I'm afraid! Picking "You can't help them now" will solve things peacefully,
 though. The rest of the cultists help fight if their leader dies (and they
 weren't killed before), so keep that in mind. Return to the Normandy and
 report to Hackett to end the mission, regardless of the outcome. [There'll be
 a Citadel elevator report about the events here.]

ASARI DIPLOMACY
―――――――――――――――
 Unlock: Clear the stronghold on Sharjila

 There is another way to unlock this mission, and that's by clearing a story
 mission (post-Citadel); Nassana then contacts the Normandy to set up the
 rendezvous. However, the easiest way is to get a head start on finding
 Nassana's sister and just head to planet Sharjila, in Artemis Tau's Macedon
 system. The stronghold will be marked on the map, and after taking down the
 mercs outside and the pirates inside, take the data off the 2F computer and
 bring it back to Nassana. The truth is revealed at this time.

  [+2P] "I've got a better deal."
  [+2R] "Credits won't cut it."

 Normal reward ----------: 400 XP, 1987c
 Charm/Intimidate reward : 800 XP, 3974c, Access to special Asari mods

 The special reward is the 'Arsali License', normally obtained from someone
 on Virmire (pretty late in the game).

UNC: ROGUE VI
―――――――――――――
 Unlock: Reach Lv20 and travel to a new location

 The Admiral's got another problem, and it involves a rogue VI somewhere on
 Luna, Earth's moon.

   [+2R] "Where have I heard that before?"
   [+2P] "Was anyone hurt?"

 Accepting gives access to the "Local Cluster," which is basically Earth's
 solar system. Once on Luna, the base is marked in the southwest area -- it
 has defense turrets naturally. There are three bunkers in a cluster here,
 and all have the same layout. It doesn't matter which ones are done first,
 but the enemies that appear and the VI traps have a definite order.

 BUNKER #1 - Enemies: Assault Drones, Rocket Drones
           - VI Trap: Poison Gas released (reduces potency of medigels)

 BUNKER #2 - Enemies: Assault Drones
           - VI Trap: Kinetic Barriers erected

 BUNKER #3 - Enemies: Assault Drones, Rocket Drones
           - VI Trap: Reinforcements summoned (room opposite current position)

 Poison gas will continuously decrease allies' health when activated (in all
 bunkers), EXCEPT if they have a helmet on. Rocket drones are especially
 dangerous, so make sure to save before each fight, and try to use the ol'
 bottleneck strategy to draw the drones into a corridor -- it's much easier
 going that way. A couple rooms have 'data ports' to inspect for mini-XP
 gains.

 Now, after the arduous task of neutralizing the three bunkers, Shepard will
 be able to change his/her base skill (such as the 'Soldier' ability, etc.)
 into an upgrade. See the class overview for more info. [NOTE: Sometimes the
 game freezes after choosing which upgrade, so make sure to save before
 destroying the last conduit.]

CITADEL: DOCTOR MICHEL
――――――――――――――――――――――
 Unlock: Return to clinic after leaving Citadel for first time.

 Talk with Chloe to overhear her being threatened by a blackmailer. Agree to
 help her and visit Morlan in the wards' lower markets to start a scene.

  [+8P] "You should reconsider."
  [+9R] "Talk and you're dead!"
  [+2P] "Let's work this out."
  [+2R] "Kill him."

 The special Charm/Intimidate skills will avoid a fight; anything else will
 result in a bloodbath. For successfully completing the mission, the good doc
 will give a discount on any supplies bought from her (which allows a method
 of "infinite" credits-gaining). [400 XP, 497c]

 Optionally, talk with Captain Anderson following the events and talk with
 him about Armistan Banes, learning that Admiral Kohaku's men discovered his
 corpse on a derelict scout ship. Kohaku can echo the information, unless the
 "Missing Marines" mission was already finished -- he'll be gone by then.

UNC: CERBERUS
―――――――――――――
 Unlock: Travel somewhere in the Normandy (post-"Missing Marines")

 If said mission has already been finished, Kohaku should have left the
 Citadel (if you care) -- travelling somewhere in the Normandy will give a
 message that gives the Cerberus mission. [NOTE: You may be able to get this
 mission without hearing the message; I think it has something to do with
 visiting the Citadel?]

 Either way, the objective is to take out the Cerberus bases in the Voyager
 Cluster's Yangtze system (Binthu). The facilities' layouts are exactly the
 same, and they have some armaments outside to take care of. They enemies are
 mostly scientists with some biotic abilities. If you've been using the
 bottleneck strategy I've been harping about, they should'n't pose a problem
 whatsoever. Note that due to the layout, Shepard can sneak in and disable the
 forcefield in the center, setting whatever animal is loose around on the
 docs (and the experience gained goes to the allies!).

 Whichever one is third will contain a corpse; inspecting it starts the
 assignment "Hades' Dogs" and ends this one.

UNC: HADES' DOGS
――――――――――――――――
 Unlock: Complete "UNC: Cerberus"

 This mission is to destroy the final Cerberus base, located in the Voyager
 Cluster's Columbia system (planet Nepheron). The exterior is lightly guarded
 by commandos, and the interior has some commandos and snipers. Check the
 console at the back to end the mission [750 XP, 750c]. After trying to exit
 the system on the Normandy, there'll be an agent from the Shadow Broker who
 comes a-knockin' for info.

  [+8P] "I don't trust you."
  [+9R] "Sounds good."

 Giving the files over earns 9000 credits!

UNC: BESEIGED BASE
――――――――――――――――――
 Unlock: Unlocks after obtaining 'x' amount of Paragon points. Doing the
         infinite paragon trick during "Lost Module" can help open this.

 Hackett says there's a base in Hades Gamma's Cacus system (planet Chohe)
 that has been overrun by biotic fanatics on some kind of space acid trip,
 and the scientists are in danger.

  [+02R] "That's not my problem."

 Picking that would refuse the mission though, and that ain't any fun. Get
 to said system and disembark into the base. The civilian targets, also
 in a drug-addled state, will wander around and can get killed in crossfire,
 so it's important to use high-precision shooting (sniping, Overkill, etc.)
 and avoid explosions. Save beforehand, of course, and watch out for the
 leader who can shoot explosive rounds. Report to hacket to get the reward
 of paragon/renegade points:

  [+24P] No civilian casualties
  [+08P] Minimal casualties (1-4) incurred
  [+09R] Maximum casualties (5+) incurred

UNC: LOST MODULE
――――――――――――――――
 Unlock: Visit the Attican Beta cluster's Hercules system

 Hackett says the geth shot down a probe nearby and the data inside must be
 collected before it can be destroyed. Inspect the downed probe to find that
 the data module is missing; it's time to search those precocious monkeys'
 colonies! One in the NE is built into an abandoned mine shaft (not pictured
 on map), and in one of the dead-ends at the back, the item in question can
 be received.

  NOTE: There is a glitch here that allows for infinite Paragon points. Once
  the data module is discovered, save and reload the game, then search that
  same monkey again for the module. Keep searching it (just mash Y) to get
  as many Paragon points as y'need.

  [+6R] Find module w/o killing a space monkey
  [+2R] Kill a space monkey in any way (driving, shooting, explosion, etc.)

 There'll be a geth ambush in the main cavern after the module is located, so
 use the bottleneck strategy and try to lead them into a tunnel opening. Just
 report to Hackett afterwards to finish up.

CITADEL: MIKHAILOVICH'S INSPECTION
――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――
 Unlock: Return to Citadel after finishing Therum, Feros, or Noveria

 In the docking bay, there'll be a mandatory stop with R.A. Mikhailovich. He
 is quite an abrupt guy, which is why there's so many Renegade choices to give
 him. Charm/Intimidate options will determine just how good the Mikhailovich's
 report paints the Normandy, mind you. [The rewards differ based on this.

  [+2P] "We need to build bridges."
  [+2R] "We need to kick ass."
  [+2R] "I'm afraid so."
  [+2R] "Damn right I did."

 Note: This 'assignment' does not appear in the normal list, before or after.

CITADEL: I REMEMBER ME
――――――――――――――――――――――
 Unlock: Return to Citadel after finishing Therum, Feros, or Noveria. Shepard
         must have chosen the 'Colonist' background for his/herself.

 Leaving the Citadel's docking bay via the elevator will get a scene where
 the newest Spectre is asked to help deal with a situation involving a woman
 from Mindoir, Shepard's old colony. She's up in the docking bay and has taken
 a gun from one of the officers, threatening suicide. Lieutenant Gerard will
 be nearby and the commander can get a sedative from him.

 Now, Talitha will commit suicide if the commander's too forceful, so ask her
 about herself repeatedly and THEN take a step forward. If you pick all of the
 Charm options, three consecutive steps can be taken. After three steps, new
 options are available.

  [+8P] “[Give her the sedative.]”
  [+9R] “[Use the sedative]”

 If you walk away from the conversation, there's another option that can be
 given to Gerard.

  [+9R] “Shoot her. That’s an order.”

 Reward is generally around 540 XP and maybe a medigel.

CITADEL: OLD FRIENDS
――――――――――――――――――――
 Unlock: Return to Citadel after finishing Therum, Feros or Noveria. Must have
         chosen "Earthborn" background.

 In the hallway leading to Chora's Den, Shepard can run into Finch, an old
 "friend" -- he used to run in the Reds (a gang) with her, years prior. His
 ally Curt has been nabbed by the turian fuzz, and he wants a our protag to
 pull some strings. Regardless of Shepard's initial response to the request,
 s/he can visit Chora's Den to see the turian.

 [+2P] I've got a warning.
 [+9P] I need your help.
 [+9R] Make it negotiable.

 If Shepard can't/won't lean on the guard, Finch shows up, trying to make good
 on this threat to publicize Shep's past. With enough para/gade points, Finch
 can be talked down and can leave safely; otherwise, Shep will have to shoot
 or pay him off.

 [+9P] This won't help you.
 [+9R] So what?
 [+9R] [Shoot him.]

 Either way, Finch ceases to be a problem. Reward is around 1056 XP, although
 the guard's plaudits after shooting Finch point-blank is its own reward, no?

CITADEL: THE FOURTH ESTATE
――――――――――――――――――――――――――
 Unlock: Return to Citadel after finishing Therum, Feros or Noveria

 In the C-Sec building lobby is a reporter (Khalisah Al-Jilani) who wants to
 interview the commander for the folks back home on Earth.

  [+2P] "This interview is over."
  [+8P] "The turians helped build it." -> "The crew is still Alliance"
  [+2R] "Time for you to shut up."
  [+9R] "A great human innovation." -> "I command the Normandy."

 Reward is around 540 XP and 5000c. Giving uptight "party line" answers will
 not win Shepard any points, but giving some paragon answers will. How did
 your commander fare? You can find out by boarding the Normandy again; there
 should be a message from Hackett on Shepard's display. [Talking about Saren
 is frowned upon though; it's like a breach of investigation.]

CITADEL: FAMILY MATTER
――――――――――――――――――――――
 Unlock: Return to Citadel after finishing Therum, Feros, or Noveria

 Outside of Barla Von's office in the Presidium financial district, Rebekah &
 Michael Petrovsky are arguing (near the transportation terminal). The
 situation is that Rebekah's unborn child may have a congenital heart defect
 and Michael wants it to be tested via gene therapy. Leaning towards one
 argument or another will open up a specific Charm/Intimidate option.

  [+8P] "It's still her choice."
  [+9R] "You're not helping."
  [+8P] "It's worth it."
  [+9R] "Think of the child."

 Reward is 560 XP.

CITADEL: PLANTING A BUG
―――――――――――――――――――――――
 Unlock: Return to Citadel after finishing Therum, Feros, or Noveria. Must've
         finished Emily Wong's previous assignment ("Reporter's Request").

 Inside the Citadel Tower, right near the transportation terminal, stands our
 favorite reporter! Now, the Commander can either go to the C-Sec traffic
 control room and plant the bug (near the keeper) or feign effort and just tell
 Emily the bug was placed.

  [+2P] “It’s a good cause.” (Only if the bug was actually placed)
  [+2P] "I’ve changed my mind.”
  [+9R] “[LIE] I already did it.”

 Reward is 560-840 XP and 5000c. If it was completed "for real," there will be
 a news story about it during one of those heinously long elevator rides.

FEROS: WATER RESTORATION
――――――――――――――――――――――――
 Unlock: (1) Go into tunnels and turn on a water valve (2) clear Feros events
         and talk to Macha Doyle in Zhu's Hope, if she survived

 The town's water supply is dwindling and the only way to get things working
 right again is to find the kinks in the pipery. Geth have invested the lower
 tunnels (accessible from the elevator tower in the camp). The valves are
 bright-white panels and easily visible in the gloomy scenery. If there's any
 tips needed, just clear out all the geth first for an easier time. Report
 back to Macha to end the mission. [620 XP, 17600c]

  [+8P] Finish the mission.

FEROS: GETH IN THE TUNNELS
――――――――――――――――――――――――――
 Unlock: (1) Destroy Geth transmitter without being told (2) talk with Fai
         Dan after fending off raid on 1st raid on Zhu's Hope.

 Fai Dan will talk about a geth transmitter in the lower tunnels of Zhu's
 Hope, which is accessible from the far stairway in the elevator tower. There
 are a few scrubs (snipers, shock troopers) along the way and the transmitter
 itself is guarded by three krogan warriors. Destroying the transmitter will
 end the mission. Talk to Fai Dan to end the mission.

FEROS: VARREN MEAT
――――――――――――――――――
 Unlock: Defeat the Varren in Zhu's Hope's lower tunnels

 Davin Reynolds will talk about how hunting in the area has gone to pot due
 to the voracious varren, weird monsters that live in the lower tunnels. This
 is a rather easy mission to do, since it simply involves killing the varren
 pack that lives in one local part of the area. Report back to Davin to get
 the reward. [620 XP, 7400c]

  [+8P] "Goodbye."
  [+2R] "Just pay up."

FEROS: POWER CELLS
――――――――――――――――――
 Unlock: Talk to May O'Connell

 The colony's power supply is, frankly, pretty crappy, and May is looking for
 some old-timey power cells that will work with their generator. The answer,
 like most of the other assignments on this planet, are in the lower tunnels
 of Zhu's Hope. In the same place where the varren were holed up, there's a
 wrecked vehicle -- inspect it to get the cells, then return to where May's
 at for delivery. [540 XP, 8800c]

  [+8P] Finish the mission successfully.

FEROS: DATA RECOVERY
――――――――――――――――――――
 Unlock: Talk to Gavin Hossle on the Prothean Skyway

 After taking the roundabout route to bypass the barrier, there will be two
 stairways to the upper level. Take the "right" one of the two to find a small
 isolated hallway guarded by three krogan operatives. Kill them and hack the
 computer to obtain Hossle's OSD, then deliver it to him -- bingo bango!
 Reward is 560 XP/10200c no matter how it's sliced. If you finish the planet
 events before delivering the data, Gavin will have relocated to Zhu's Hope's
 main camp.

GARRUS: FIND DR. SALEON
―――――――――――――――――――――――
 Unlock: Talk to Garrus aboard the Normandy (after clearing two plot worlds?)

 Garrus will chit-chat about an old case he had involving Dr. Saleon, a doc
 who was growing extra organs in subjects and harvesting them for cash. By
 pressing Garrus, he'll eventually give up the coordinates to the last-known
 whereabouts: the Herschel System in the Kepler Verge. Board the MSV Fedele
 and defeat all the Test Subjects in the main bay. They're basically Thorian
 Creepers that give up craploads of credits. The good doctor's in the medical
 bay. He ends up dying either way, so at least let Garrus send him to hell.

UNC: COLONY OF THE DEAD
―――――――――――――――――――――――
 Unlock: In the ExoGeni Facility on Feros, find a server log expressing some
         concerns about Cerberus

 After clearing Feros, go to the Maroon Sea's Matano system, planet Chasca.
 The southeastern portion has three civilian structures (base), most filled
 with annoying clusters of Husks. Inside the underground base structure, the
 backroom logs suggest that Cerberus intentionally infected the colony. That
 ends the mission...whee.

UNC: EXOGENI FACILITY
―――――――――――――――――――――
 Unlock: In the ExoGeni Facility on Feros, find a server log talking about a
         subject sent to a research facility.

 After completing Feros, travel to the Maroon Sea's Vostok system, planet
 Nodacrux. There'll be a scene en route where a distress beacon is coming
 from a facility there. Travel through the mountain region to the clifftop
 facility...and surprise, there's Thorian Creepers outside! And inside! The
 bottleneck strategy works well here, although since they're weak anyway,
 who cares?

 In the back there are some ExoGeni researchers who had been trapped by their
 own creations. They try to finaggle themselves out of being arrested by
 offering bribes (33000c), although if it's not accepted, they'll fight back
 in a weak fashion.

  [+8P] "I can't do that."
  [+9R] "I should kill you now!"

NOVERIA: SMUGGLING
――――――――――――――――――
 Unlock: Go to Noveria

 In the plaza area, the shopkeeper Opold wants Shepard to use the Spectre
 status to smuggle a package through customs. If Shepard agrees, the package
 will spawn down by the ship ("Opold's Package") and can be picked up. There
 will be no trouble bringing it through customs either, surprisingly. There
 three main routes to completing this mission.

 • METHOD #1: SHOPKEEPER: Bring the package back to Opold. Choosing to steal
   the package instead of giving it over gives a random weapons mode scaled to
   Shepard's team's average level. Doing the right thing and giving it to the
   Opold will get a reward of...250c and 750 XP. However, choosing the
   Charm/Intimidate options will give a better reward of 500c and 760 XP. If
   you choose to keep the package, you can still shop there, mind you, but
   the item stolen won't be that useful unless one's levels are high.

 • METHOD #2: INAMORDA  : Inamorda is the buyer of the package, found on the
   hotel mezzanine. If you've agreed to pick up the package and made the hanar
   say who the buyer was (Charm/Intimidate required), Shepard can go to
   Inamorda and barter a deal that skips the middleman -- but only if Shepard
   hadn't picked up the package yet. Supposing the Spectre does give the item
   over to Inamorda, the profit is 1250c/760 XP; using Charm or Intimidate
   options bumps that up to 750c/760 XP

   [+2R] Sell the package to Inamorda directly, behind the hanar's back

 • METHOD #3: ANOLEIS   : If you've picked up the package but haven't given
   it to anyone yet, talk to the administrator and show him said package (this
   is required as proof). Anoleis will give 200c and a Garage Pass for going
   through the trouble, although he can be Charmed/Intimidated into letting
   Shepard keep the weapon upgrade, too. [1900 XP]

 Choosing to keep the item will result in a fight with Inamorda inside the
 docking bay next time Shepard visits.

NOVERIA: ESPIONAGE
――――――――――――――――――
 Unlock: Go to Noveria

 Mallene Calis in the upper mezzanine area represents an asari biotics firm,
 and is trying to spy on a human rep from a rival company, who she thinks is
 trying to infringe on their copyrights. She wants to enlist Shepard's help
 to investigate this by uploading monitoring spyware onto Rafael Vargas'
 computer next time he logs into the company intranet.

 [+2P] Accept job from Asari but then choose to quit on principle
 [+8P] Refuse to help break the law from the get-go

 If Shepard accepts, she can learn that Rafael Vargas -- at the nearby bar --
 is an impatient man, and when he rubs the back of his neck, that's the sign
 he's uncomfortable on the subject. Now, the commander gets one shot to bluff
 through the conversation, with the goal being to keep him talking long enough
 for the viruses to upload. The flow of conversation should be like this, with
 little deviation:

 - I'm an alliance marine. / I'm a Spectre.
 - If the price is right.
 - That's correct. / That's irrelevant [both are Charm/Intimidate REPLIES]
 - What about pain immunity? / Small improvements.
 - That seems high.
 - You seem guilty.
 - That's my comm unit. / I'm being paged.

 There are some other Charm/Intimidate replies (all are "good" for furthering
 conversation) but none that are mandatory besides the third series.

 Now, for the reward. If Shepard planted the viruses, return to Mallene and
 get the default reward of 500c/140 XP. Shepard can use the Charm/Intimidate
 skills to milk her reward up to 750c/140 XP. On the flipside, Shepard can
 choose "An asari asked me to spy" when talking to Vargas and blow the whole
 operation apart, then talk to Mallene who rushes to get offworld. This gives
 140 XP and no credits.

  [+2P] Tell Rafael the Asari is trying to spy on him, then finish the mission
  [+2R] Plant the viruses on Vargas, then finish the mission.

UNC: LISTENING POST THETA
―――――――――――――――――――――――――
 Unlock: Complete Noveria

 There are two ways to open this mission: (1) do "Listening Post Alpha"
 sidemission (2) visit planet below.

 In Styx Theta's Acheron galaxy (planet Altahe), visit the Listening Post to
 find rachni nests outside of it. Defeat them and enter inside, taking out
 the remaining critters who've overrun the outpost. Inspect the back terminal
 to learn a shipment came from Argos Rho two days prior. If you haven't done
 "Listening Post Alpha" yet, inspect the emergency com near the terminal to
 get the mayday call.

UNC: LISTENING POST ALPHA
―――――――――――――――――――――――――
 Unlock: Complete Noveria

 There are two ways to open this mission: (1) do "Listening Post Theta" and
 hear the emergency broadcast near the terminal (2) arrive at the planet
 below.

 In Styx Theta's Erebus cluster (planet Nepmos), there is a listening post in
 the southeastern portion. Some soldiers are fending off rachni attacks, but
 their defense turret generator is gutted and they're almost through. The only
 way to make it operable is to connect the mako to it -- this gets the turrets
 to work, but the mako can't be used to run over or shoot the rachni until it
 is disconnected.

 Leave it connected and talk with Lieutenant Durand, agreeing to help her when
 asked. Defeat two waves of rachni on foot and speak with her again to learn
 the source is about 500m away, in an abandoned mine shaft (it appears on the
 map after the conversation). Once inside, use the "bottleneck" strategy and
 lure the many rachni toward a spot where it's easier to kill 'em. As a fun
 alternative, find a box to stand on and direct your team around the room to
 lure them out; then deal with 'em in your preferred fashion! When all are
 defeated -- a message will denote this -- the mission's over as well. [2990XP]

UNC: DEPOT SIGMA-23
―――――――――――――――――――
 Unlock: Finish "Listening Post Theta"

 In Argos Rho's Gorgon system, visit the Unidentified Space Facility floating
 in Camaron's orbit (it's already marked on map). The cargo bay will be a maze
 of rachni workers and a few larger ones, but it's nothing tactical playing
 can't overcome. At the back, listen to the terminal with Elena Flores'
 datalogs to learn about Cerberus. To finish the mission, prime the demo
 charge next to the terminal and get out of there before the station blows
 (1:10). Naturally some rachni appear on the way out. If you didn't get the
 crapload of chests here, do so before then!

WREX: FAMILY ARMOR
――――――――――――――――――
 Unlock: Told by Wrex after completing 3 worlds

 This mission can unlock after doing a bunch of storyline missions and having
 conversations with Wrex, or you can simply go to the destination: Tantau
 in Argos Rho's Phoenix cluster (southeastern hidden facility). If you walk
 in without any pretense and Wrex is with, he'll talk about how the guy
 inside (Tonn Actus) is a profiteer who stole heirloom armor that's been in
 his family for generations.

 Inside will be two hordes of pirates: ones that appear on the map initially
 and, after going to 2F, some more that appear. Now, these ones can actually
 be rather hard and have lots of HP in comparison to normal pirates. Tonn
 Actus is on 2F but can have his health whittled away by blowing up the 3
 fuel tanks there. Crack the 2F wall safe to get the Krogan Armor along with
 some upgrades.

 NOTE: Doing this allows one to mitigate a potentially fatal situation on
       Virmire without the need for Charm/Renegade points, which would be
       mandatory otherwise (well, if you wanted so-and-so to live).

VIRMIRE: KIRRAHE'S TEAM
―――――――――――――――――――――――
 Unlock: Mandatory

 After getting past the salarian camp on Virmire, the assault on the base will
 open this "assignment." Since there's two teams, the goal is to undercut the
 enemy's operations in order to take the heat off Kirrahe's team, which is
 outnumbered and dangeorusly close to dying where numbers are concerned. There
 are a few ways to help 'em out. Most of these places are marked on the map
 in-game, for reference.

 • Sabotage the comm tower during the base approach
 • Sabotage the satellite uplink (on a roof) during the base approach
 • Sabotage the geth flyers, which hover over the refueling station.
 • During the breakin, disable the alarm but don't send guards towards Kirrahe

 Sabotaging will give various amounts of Paragon points (see walkthrough).
 Finishing the world will automatically finish the mission, too.

CITADEL: NEGOTIATOR'S REQUEST
―――――――――――――――――――――――――――――
 Unlock: Complete Virmire

 During some mandatory post-Virmire events, Shepard will have to meet Cap'n
 Anderson in Flux. Elias Keeler, a diplomat, is standing at the foot of the
 stair leading into there. This guy wants a stimulant drug in order to save
 face at upcoming salarian trade negotiations, but he's purchased his monthly
 limit...


 Should you want to avoid the hassle of helping him out, he can be talked out
 of his desire for stimulants with the charm/intimidate options. If you decide
 to help him, visit Dr. Michel's med bay to find two new items available: a
 Mental Stimulant and Depressant, all for under 100 credits. The commander can
 either give him the stimulant or switch it with the depressant, which turns
 Elias into a slack-jawed buffoon.

  [+8P] "You need help." --> 1449 XP
  [+2R] "No. You'll go now." --> 1449 XP
  [+9R] [Give him the depressant.] --> 966 XP, 66000c

 During an elevator ride, Shepard can hear of the negotiation's exploits, and
 what part Keeler had in 'em. Giving him the stimulant gives the same reward
 as if Shepard gave him the depressant, for reference.

CITADEL: OUR OWN WORST ENEMY
――――――――――――――――――――――――――――
 Unlock: Complete Virmire

 Back on the Citadel post-Virmire, in the lower wards near the entrance to
 Flux, there will be an "Earth First" protest led by Charles Saracino, an
 outspoken critic of the Alliance's policies towards aliens. He's attempting
 to run for political office. Supporting his narrow-minded policies, or
 rebuking them, will give a minute amount of Paragon/Renegade points. [33000c,
 966 XP]

  [+2P] "I won't support you."
  [+2R] "You have my support."

UNC: THE NEGOTIATION
――――――――――――――――――――
 Unlock: 75% Renegade Gauge

 If you manage to get three-fourths of the renegade gauge filled through
 various devious actions (or the Noveria trick), Admiral Hackett should radio
 in aboard the Normandy with this mission. The objective is to find Darius,
 a warlord on planet Nonuel (in Hades Gamma's Plutus system) and make a treaty
 with him. [NOTE: You cannot get into his compound without taking this mission
 first!] Once inside, there are two ways to make the treaty: (1) appease Lord
 Darius by giving him everything he wants (2) kill Darius instead! Either way,
 report back to the Normandy to finish the mission.

 [+08P] Made peace treaty
 [+25R] Killed warlord & his men

CLASS OVERVIEW                                                           [CLSO]
_______________________________________________________________________________
―――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――
 Each playable character -- with the exception of Commander Shepard -- has a
 set class, which comes with its own set of specific, unchangeable abilities.
 I'll go over the abilities in-depth in a sec, but here's a general overview
 of what each class has. Notes:

 • Shepard's class is the only one that can learn Charm/Intimidate skills (by
   default) and, later, Spectre Training.

 • Asterisked (*) items denote skills not unlocked by default.

|――――――――――――――――――| UPGRADE: Commando -or- Shock Trooper
| Pistols          |
| *Shotguns        | Arguably, soldiers are the most well-rounded class in the
| Assault Rifles   | game, getting a bevy of weapon options to start with, the
| *Sniper Rifles   | ability to equip heavy armor, and high health. For a
| Combat Armor     | first-time player, this is probably the best class to
| *First Aid       | make Shepard as since its flexability plays well to most
| Assault Training | situations. The Commando upgrade focuses on powering-up
| *Fitness         | damage abilities while the Shock Trooper upgrade aims to
| Soldier          | make the unit stay alive longer through defensive skills.
|__________________| Its main downside is lack of biotic abilities, obviously.

| ENGINEER         | USEABLE: Shepard
|――――――――――――――――――| UPGRADE: Medic -or- Operative
| Pistols          |
| *Basic Armor     | Engineers aren't that useful in a pinch, but once the
| First Aid        | player realizes they're meant to be a support class (and
| *Medicine        | precautions are taken based off that) they're a lot more
| Decryption       | usable. Decryption is used to break into containers, and
| *Hacking         | Electronics is used to salvage crashed probes -- both're
| Electronics      | invaluable when exploring uncharted worlds. Since they
| *Damping         | only get weak equipment, giving their armor high shields
| Engineer         | and the best pistols helps 'em survive longer.

| ADEPT            | USEABLE: Shepard
|――――――――――――――――――| UPGRADE: Bastion -or- Nemesis
| Basic Armor      |
| *Pistols         | Adepts are biotics specialists who rely on specialties
| Throw            | instead of bullets, which explains their lack of weapon
| *Lift            | prowess and light armoring. When allies are packing heavy
| Barrier          | firepower, abilities like Singularity and Lift can really
| *Stasis          | expose the foes to the full brunt of it. The Bastion
| Warp             | upgrade will allow the class to attack enemies caught in
| *Singularity     | a stasis field (among other things), while the Nemesis'll
| Adept            | increase Warp/Lift's potency. Overall, the class may take
|__________________| some work but it can definitely pay off.

| INFILTRATOR      | USEABLE: Shepard
|――――――――――――――――――| UPGRADE: Commando -or- Operative
| Pistols          |
| *Sniper Rifles   | Infiltrators dabble in a little of everything, and they
| Tactical Armor   | may be a little more handy in a skirmish than Engineers;
| *Fitness         | the weapons they're trained in are some of the most
| Decryption       | accurate. Decryption and Electronics are vital to doing
| *First Aid       | interplanetary excursions, while the titular ability will
| Electronics      | reduce give a heat-dampening effect (lower overheat cost)
| *Damping         | and increase mine-based damage. The Commando upgrade is
| Infiltrator      | meant to increase weapon-based damage, while an Operative
|__________________| upgrade is meant to reduce cooldown costs for techniques.

| SENTINEL         | USEABLE: Shepard, Kaidan Alenko
|――――――――――――――――――| UPGRADE: Medic -or- Bastion
| Barrier          |
| *Stasis          | Sentinels are...kinda good. They specialize in supportive
| Throw            | and defensive abilities, and make decent medics (which is
| *Lift            | why they can specialize in it!). The obvious downside is
| Decryption       | they lack hardcore combat skills and, unless they're told
| *Electronics     | to wait in the back lines, they're probably the ones who
| First Aid        | die most often. Their mixture of biotics and essential
| *Medicine        | skills is...interesting though. Both upgrades reduce
| Sentinel         | cooldown times -- Medics for healing-oriented abilities
|__________________| and Bastion for defensive-oriented ones.

| VANGUARD         | USEABLE: Shepard
|――――――――――――――――――| UPGRADE: Nemesis -or- Shock Trooper
| Pistols          |
| *Shotguns        | Vanguards great weapons and armor abilities make them a
| Throw            | fan favorite with players, and for good reason: it's a
| *Lift            | cool blend of weapons function and biotic techs. There's
| Assault Training | a gaping downside though...their biotics abilities are
| *Tactical Armor  | attack-oriented, so they can't be substitutes for those
| Warp             | support classes. The Nemesis upgrade gives biotic tech
| *Barrier         | damage bonuses, while the Shock Trooper boosts the unit's
| Vanguard         | survival ability through health boosts and defensive-
|__________________| -oriented bonuses.

| TURIAN AGENT     | USEABLE: Garrus Vakarian
|――――――――――――――――――| UPGRADE: ---
| Assault Rifles   |
| *Sniper Rifles   | Similar to an Infiltrator, Garrus' special class is more
| Tactical Armor   | geared towards attacking -- his innate use of assault
| *Assault Training| rifles immediately makes him a great candidate for battle,
| Decryption       | and his useful Decryption/Electronics abilities only
| *Damping         | sweeten the pot. He's one of the few allies who is that
| First Aid        | balanced (Wrex is the other) in all fields. His unique
| *Electronics     | Turian Agent skill improves all weapons' accuracy as
| Turian Agent     | well as increasing rifle damage (any kind). Instead of an

|QUARIAN MACHINIST | USEABLE: Tali'Zorah nar Rayya
|――――――――――――――――――| UPGRADE: ---
| Pistols          |
| *Shotguns        | Tali's special class is like an Engineer with better
| Basic Armor      | weapons options. The Hacking skill gives her a great
| *First Aid       | long-range ability to screw with synthetic enemies, and
| Electronics      | she can blow off heads with shotguns up close. She still
| *Damping         | has the pitfalls of the class she mimics, though: poor
| Decryption       | armor options! Her machinist ability will improve tech
| *Hacking         | resistance and increase shield capacity, which will keep
|Quarian Machinist | her alive more often than naught. Fun character to have
|__________________| around, overall.

KROGAN BATTLEMASTER| USEABLE: Urdnot Wrex
―――――――――――――――――――| UPGRADE: ---
 Assault Rifles    |
 *Shotguns         | The very definition of a tank, Wrex has great weapons
 Combat Armor      | abilities, useful attack biotics, and a titular ability
 *Fitness          | that improves health regeneration and reduces physics
 Warp              | damage (as well as upping melee damage). If you've fought
 *Throw            | a krogan before, they're rather formidable -- Wrex ain't
 Barrier           | any different. Like Garrus, his specialties are twofold
 *Stasis           | and that flexibility makes him a great battle partner.
Krogan Battlemaster| As an aside, he also seems to get excellent armor early

| ASARI SCIENTIST  | USEABLE: Liara T'Soni
|――――――――――――――――――| UPGRADE: ---
| Throw            |
| *Lift            | Liara is like an Adept but lacks any weapons abilities
| Warp             | whatsoever -- she's a purebred biotic user! With a variety
| *Singularity     | of those attacks at her command, she can be pretty dang
| Barrier          | potent. A few nitpicks though: Liara has Electronics but
| *Stasis          | no Decryption...it's kinda lame to split 'em up. Also,
| First Aid        | Liara can only have Stasis -OR- Overload; learning one
| *Electronics     | makes the other disappear! Her special skill improves all
| Asari Scientist  | biotics' cooldown time as well as giving an additional
|__________________| boost to First Aid's healing, so she's excellent /there/.

 NOTE: Increases are not cumulative! For instance, if a pistol accuracy is
 raised from Lv1 to Lv2, it becomes +14%, not 24% (10+14).

 Default: Soldier, Engineer, Infiltrator, Vanguard, Quarian Machinist
 Unlock : Adept (Basic Armor L5)

 This skill will boost pistol damage and accuracy, which helps since said
 weapon has a comparatively bad rate of fire which affects damage output;
 however, their accuracy is great...just not in a sniper rifle's league. It
 also serves as a stepping stone for warrior classes' to open up better
 weapon options. The Marksman skill is similar to the "Overkill" ability in
 that it lets the user fire continuously while minimizing the likelihood of
 overheating.

 Shotguns are meant to be close-range monsters, not long-range sniping tools,
 which should be obvious to anyone who's tried the latter. This skillset will
 increase damage and accuracy, and allow access to it special skill: Carnage.
 Said skill actually lowers the damage of the next shot but gives its rounds
 a "splash" effect, damaging nearby enemies in the aftermath.

 The warrior's weapon of choice, and one of the best reasons to use Garrus,
 Wrex, and Ashley. The assault rifle is a mid-range weapon and has a high rate
 of fire, making it an excellent piece to defeat meddling geth and any other
 baddy. Although the damage and accuracy boosts as the skillset is learned,
 the high rate of fire can still be a problem, especially if the overheating
 limit is rather low on the weapon. Thus, it's always good to have some kind
 of heat dampening add-on to put more oomph in its power. The Overkill tech
 will keep the reticle small and provide accuracy boosts to ensure the mark
 doesn't get out alive.

  • Overkill - Rifle ACC +20%, 40% Heat Reduction, 10s Duration, 45s Recharge

 Sniper rifles can boost high power but are often unwieldly early on due to
 their high overheat limit and low skill accuracy. Later on, though, they're
 great for sniping faraway targets (aware or not), and the Assassination tech
 only improves its usefulness, often being able to OHKO its marks. It's
 strictly a long-range weapon, though, so it's not that good in a close-
 -quarters skirmish.

 Melee damage comes into play when an enemy is too close to fire accurately
 at, and improving all types of weapons damage is always a plus. However, the
 main reason to invest in this class is "Adrenaline Burst," which makes any
 and all currently recharging abilities instantly usable (resets cooldown
 times, basically). By default, it's got the worst charge time in the game so
 there's reason to keep investing in the ability despite its main function
 never changing.

 Hacking is a special ability for Engineers and Tali, letting them hack into

 themselves, which can easily turn a poor situation into an easily-won one.

 A companion to the Decryption ability, a high Electronics level will let the
 team salvage wrecked probes [etc.] in uncharted worlds. Since this directly
 affects the completion of some side missions, it's always good to have
 someone get to Lv9 in it. Additionally, the Mako vehicle will be healed more
 from the same amount of omni-gel if a skilled Electronics specialist is in
 the party, and it can really pay off in the long run.

 Damping is an area attack that can stun foes, leaving them open to attacks
 from allies -- in essence, it can make battles much, much shorter. As one
 invests time in it, stronger foes can be affected by the skills as well. Of
 course, the attack radius broadens due to the skillset's secondary effect,
 too.

 The Throw ability is isolated in some biotics/specialist classes, so if yer
 a fan of balanced allies (like Garrus or Wrex), this isn't an option. Just
 the same, the throw ability will send enemies flying backwards and deal some
 minute damage as well. The higher skill level, the harder the enemies are
 flung...pretty basic concept. Note that environmental hazards, like pits and
 lava, can be used to one's advantage with this skill.

 Pretty easy concept to understand, no? The target is lifted into the air.
 It does no damage by itself but works well when used in conjunction with
 other abilities, namely those that improve firepower/accuracy (Assassination
 or Overkill) and fun biotics like Throw (which can improve distance tossed).

 Not much to say on this end: Barrier erects a barrier, and improving the
 skillset increases the temporary shields amount and its duration. Although
 it's good on any class that can learn it, it's especially useful on weaker
 biotics-geared classes and Wrex, which makes him even more of a tank than he
 already is.

 Warp is a great ability, in that it reduces the enemy's defense and deals
 continuous damage. It's cool in and of itself, sure, but also stops enemies'
 regenerating abilities (or at least counteracts them somewhat). Some people
 extol its greatness for higher difficulty play, and for good reason!

 Stasis...well, locks a target in stasis: they can't move but also can't be
 damaged. It's more of a way to just get some foes out of the way, generally.
 While it's more of a stopgap for normal classes, if the user specializes in
 the 'Bastion' class upgrade, they gain the ability to kill Stasis-ed targets.
 It's like Final Fantasy Tactics, where you can inflict Stop on someone with
 Shadow Stitch and then just beat the crap out of them without any fuss!

 Singularity is a cool biotic tech. When placed, it uses a small gravitational
 field to suck in nearby enemies, rendering them helpless for the duration of
 the ability and letting the allies get in some potshots. Investing in the
 class will improve its radius and charge time.

 The Charm and Intimidate skills are available only to whichever class the
 commander chooses, and they both have one main function: changing dialogue
 options, which can directly affect the outcomes of some main events and
 assignments. A peculiarity about this skillset is that more Charm/Intimidate
 levels are gained by having 'x' amount filled in the Paragon and Renegade
 gauges, which themselves are filled by getting 'x' amount of Charm/Intimidate
 points. It's a cyclic symbiotic relationship, y'see.

 NOTE: A free point in Charm/Intimidate is reached when the gauges are filled
 10%, 25%, and 75% of the way. Also, when Shepard becomes a Spectre, each gets
 a free point.

 Now, each ability has a certain kickback at stores. A high Charm level will
 give a store discount anywhere in the world, while a high Intimidate stat
 can coerce shopkeeps into paying more for sold items.

 improving health, overall accuracy, accuracy regeneration, and all abilities'
 damage and duration. The special "Unity" ability can automatically revive
 fallen comrades, who would otherwise normally revive after the enemies are
 all dead. It has a heinous reload time though, so either plan to get battles

 ############################## CLASS UPGRADES ##############################

 Class upgrades are available to any normal class, but only Shepard's chosen
 profession can get 'em. They provide all the normal boosts of their base
 job as well as additional ones. To get the upgrade, complete the "Rogue VI"
 side mission. Each upgrade has two base classes, so the specialized skills
 may differ slightly depending on which was chosen (this will be written
 vertically alongside the table, unless each upgrade has the same growth).

 Equipment is what the characters equip for weapons and armor, so it's
 essential for survival. A theoretical weapon "set" will have ten pieces,
 from one to ten (I-X) in strength. Armor "sets" also have ten pieces but may
 be doubled or tripled to accomodate heavy/medium/light armor types. So, a
 soldier may have three different Scorpion IV armors to equip, while a
 Quarian -- which can only equip Light armor -- will have fewer options.

 DMG ----- Base damage for weapon
 OVR ----- Number of successive shots until weapon overheats
 ACC ----- Base accuracy for weapon
 SHL ----- Base shields (armor only)
 TBP ----- Tech/Biotic Production value (armor only)
 # ------- Number of enhancement slots available to piece
 COST ---- Default cost of equipment piece
 COMPANY - Company that makes equipment piece (useful for buying licenses)

 All weapons will have at least two enhancement slots: one for the weapon,
 one for the ammunition. Better types will have three slots, two for the
 weapon and one for ammo. Armor pieces always have at least one slot and have
 specific add-ons.

 Although other upgrades give accuracy bonuses, this is the only type made
 specifically for that purpose. Extra accuracy is always a plus, but since
 there are no better upgrades past Lv3, it's wiser to find a different add-on
 that gives an accuracy bonus (often better) plus another function. Not too
 bad early on, though.

|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|

 Cooldown upgrades reduce overheat costs, which can extend the firing span of
 crappy weapons or great weapons with ammo that generates much heat. All of
 these give a decent heat-dampening effect, but the Frictionless Materials'll
 also give a minute damage bonus, too. Very useful for people who like to use
 High Explosive Rounds (500% heat generation!).

|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|

 Damage upgrades are made specifically to increase killing power, but will
 have accuracy penalties (HC Barrel) or heat-dampening penalties (all). As one
 can see, the accuracy penalty is dropped on the upgrade but the Scram Rail
 will provide less power upgrades than the Rail Extension. Upgrades that'll
 counteract the heat penalty go hand in hand with these.

 Scanning upgrades will override the geth's jamming equipment, which prevents
 them from showing up on the mini radar. As we all know, this generally isn't
 that important since it does nothing to VISUAL identification; however, the
 Combat Optics also give an accuracy bonus so those aren't too shabby if
 there's nothing else laying around.

|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|

 Stability upgrades reduce recoil, which is very useful for assault rifles
 (recoil will increase the reticle's size). Combined with a heat-dampening
 upgrade, you can make a weapon that rarely overheats and has great accuracy.
 This is one of the most useful upgrades, to be honest.

 All weapons will have one innate slot for ammo upgrades, which can improve
 damage versus one type of enemy, increase knockback, etc. Any gun can equip
 any type of this upgrade. Most types come in groups, with one upgrade being
 available earlier and the next later on.

|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|

 Organic creates end up being a minority in this game, as any creature that
 isn't a machine (such as turrets) or geth. Organics typically end up as
 human, asari, krogan, and salarian mercenaries seen in bases and ships
 throughout the galaxy. Generally these rounds are overkill against everything
 but krogan (who can bumrush for melee damage) but having some around can help
 if y'get in a pickle.

 Radioactive Rounds are "unique" in that they have no real upgrade type.
 Their main function is to reduce targets' tech/biotic cooldown times, so
 obviously they're best used against targets who CAN use such things (i.e.
 not geth).

 Synthetics are non-organic creatures, so basically robots. This means these
 types of rounds are super-effective against geth, and since that type is the
 most abundant in the game, it always pays to have Tungsten Rounds on hand.

|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|

 High Explosive Rounds are deadly indeed, doing explosive damage to the target
 which can easily take down enemies. The downside: 500% heat generated! This
 can make a top-notch assault rifle's shots-before-overheat stat drop into the
 low single digits! Whichever the case, accurate small-burst fire with some
 kind of overheat-dampening ability (Overkill?) can help make the most out of
 the rounds. Note that the damage increases stack with other abilities, so
 combining these with a mastered Assassination skill can be uber-lethal to
 even top-tier geth.

|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|

 These rounds have three stats: toxic damage, damage/sec, and the effect's
 duration (the latter is constant for both types). Toxic damage is most
 effective against organic-type enemies, which makes sense since synthetics
 can't be poisoned, etc.

|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|

 Barrier-piercing rounds have two stats: Shield Bypass and Damage Reduction.
 The former raises as the upgrade's level rises, but the latter remains the
 constant. Phasic/Proton rounds, as suggested, can bypass enemy barriers,
 often quickening their death. The downside to this would-be broken ability
 is the damage reduction, which undermines the speed of death. Still cool to
 have, though.

|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|

 Both of these types increase weapons force on the target, which can knock
 over or unbalance whoever's hit. Sledgehammer Rounds get additional stats
 (Toxic Damage, Overheat Penalty) to increase their lethality.

| 01 | 02 | 03 | 04 | 05 | 06 | 07 | 08 | 09 | 10 | "COLD" ROUNDS

|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|

 These two types are joined by their "cold" ability, which causes enemies to
 freeze upon death and explode into ice chunklets. Cryo Rounds have two stats
 (Shield Bypass, Target ACC Penalty) while Snowblind Rounds one-up them (
 Damage Bonus, ROF Penalty, Target ACC Penalty). Snowblind Rounds are very,
 very fun to use and if used on an assault rifle, the ROF (rate of fire)
 penalty is rather negligible. If you shoot a charging enemy, they snap-freeze
 and slide along the ground like a frozen toboggan -- classic!

|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|

 Cryo Explosives work just like Snowblind/Cryo Rounds, snap-freezing targets
 they hit. Most of the time the effect comes when the enemy dies, and that's
 not too useful in-and-of-itself (unless you kill an HP-regenerating krogan).

 These upgrades damage and give targets radiation poisoning, doing consistant
 damage (all 5s duration). It can't compete with the Incendiary Explosive's
 power but it's not a bad alternative if nothing else is available.

 Probably the best upgrade to get, these provide no additional effect...just
 sweet and utter destruction power. A High Explosive X upgrade is downright
 mindblowing! Things go flying, people go flying, body parts go flying...you
 get the idea.

 If you're not interested in just explosing enemies with the upgrade listed
 above this one, Incendiary Explosives are a great alternative. Not only do
 they do massive damage to the target, but the thermite inside will give the
 target severe burns, inflicting additional damage after the blast! [Duration
 for burn is always 5s].

  Major thanks to the Mass Effect wiki for some armor info, and etjester for
  being a good sport and letting me use some of his armor info, too. Him and
  warfreak influenced how I made my charts, which is a whole lot better than
  what I was doing (see my failure here: tinyurl.com/dm2meg).
  ##########################################################################

 Unfortunately, there are so many armors in the game that they'd make a list
 like those above three times as long as normal, and that's just crappy on the
 whole. So, instead, it'll be broken down by each type. Not as good a format
 for making comparisons but thems the breaks... I'll put abbreviations for
 each class:

 H = Human
 K = Krogan
 Q = Quarian
 T = Turian

 There is no Asari category because Liara wears human armor.

|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|

 These seals shave a percentage off toxic damage, which can come from certain
 gasses and radiation. No idea what I'm talking about? That's how useful they
 are -- very little. In fact, there's no reason to equip these if you've got
 something better. Throw your toxic seals in the garbage if you just don't
 care... Aww yeah. =p

|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|

 Some upgrades may reduce cooldown time, but this is the only one geared for
 this particularly. It reduces biotic/tech cooldown times -- that's all!

|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|

 These upgrades increase the user's Hardening stat, which basically cuts a
 percentage of damage from each hit. These can be very useful and only get
 better as each new type arrives.

|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|

 These weaves increase Hardening, which reduces damage from tech/biotic
 attacks. Pretty useful early on but there's no additional upgrades, so it
 wears thin.

| -- | -- | -- | -- | -- | -- | -- | 15 | 19 | 23 |
|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|

 These interfaces increase health regeneration (the fractional ones), while
 the upgrades have percentage toxic resistance and the Medical Exoskeleton has
 a cooldown reduction to boot. These are great overall but even moreso on
 allies who don't have access to innate regeneration skills (such as Kaidan).

| -- | -- | -- | -- | -- | -- | -- | 25 | 30 | 35 |
|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|

 Kinetic upgrades increase overall shields and mobile accuracy (first two
 stats on each type), while the Buffer's third slot gives a tech/biotics
 cooldown reduction; for the Exoskeleton's 3rd, a shield recovery bonus.
 Needless to say, these abilities work well on units who need lots of shields
 and have useful offensive techs...which is just about everyone!

| 10 | 15 | 20 | -- | -- | -- | -- | -- | -- | -- | Shock Absorbers
|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|

 Only useful if there's nothing else around, Shock Absorbers will increase the
 unit's physics threshold, which makes them less likely to be displaced by
 Throw/Lift biotics. If you really care about something like this -- which is
 already a rare occurance in itself -- seek out the Combat Exoskeleton and its
 kin, which provide this and more.

|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|____|

 These upgrades give percentage bonuses to the unit's shield regeneration
 amounts; the Energized Weave also gives a Hardening bonus. These work well on
 any class, but certain ones in particular can make more use of them (i.e.
 those that can't equip decent armor, die a lot, can't use Barrier, etc.)

 This one should be obvious: each upgrade increases the amount of shields the
 person has. These work well on any class, but certain ones in particular can
 make more use of them (i.e. those that can't equip decent armor, die a lot,
 can't use Barrier, etc.)

 Each upgrade provides a bonus to smash (melee) damage; Exoskeleton and its
 upgrade give a physics threshold bonus, and the final type also gives a
 hardening boost. Now, the first two are rather rare but the best type, the
 Combat Exoskeleton, is definitely NOT uncommon. Players like Wrex who can
 already get melee bonuses can really go to town with one of these, and the
 higher physics threshold ensures that biotics like Throw/Lift don't bowl him
 over.

ACHIEVEMENTS                                                             [ACHV]

 Achievements are in-game feats that unlock gamerscore points; some of them
 will also give augmentations and bonuses in-game as well.

SPECIFIC NOTES
――――――――――――――
 • "The Majority of The Game" will include optional assignments, which will
   affect not only ally-related achievements but the Completionist one too.
   I'm pretty sure I've gotten the ally-based one during Noveria, after doing
   the other plot-related planets and any uncharted worlds available then.

 • Any achievement requiring 'x' amount of uses or kills must be done by
   Shepard, not other allies. For this reason, multiple playthroughs on new
   profiles are necessary to get them.

 • CHARISMATIC ACHIEVEMENT: This is obtained by using the Charm/Intimidate
   skills to settle a situation that would otherwise be unresolved. There're
   two instances that I know of where this can be obtained: (1) talking with
   Wrex on Virmire (2) with Saren in the final level.

 • SCHOLAR ACHIEVEMENT: Complexing the codex' main entries can give people a
   hard time, despite most of the entries being obtainable from early as the
   Citadel. Basically, the codex will store info when new terms or people are
   met, so this is a dialogue-heavy feat. The Council Races section completes
   throughout the course of the game, while most of the Non-Council Races
   can be found by checking Avina terminals or finding the races throughout
   the area. The problematic ones are:

   - Extinct Races: Protheans. Easily missable! Before going to Eden Prime,
     talk with Nihlus about the race, doing both conversations.

   - Non-Council Races: Batarians. Captain Anderson can be questioned about
     his past adventures once he becomes an NPC (after becoming a Spectre,
     either in the docking bay or Udina's office).

 • NEW SHERIFF IN TOWN/BEST OF THE BEST: "Sheriff" requires getting 1st in a
   combat scenario on Pinnacle Station; "Best" requires getting 1st in twelve
   missions.

 • TACTICIAN ACHIEVEMENT: This is obtained for finishing the game and having
   Shepard's overall shield damage greater than the overall health damage. If
   you like to use cover and are generally careful (such as luring enemies to
   bottlenecks), this isn't that hard to get.

 Asterisked (*) achievements are DLC-related.

TRICKS                                                                   [TRKS]
_______________________________________________________________________________
―――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――
 Outside of the general nature, there are a few tricks that rely on glitches
 and such that the player may be interested in. None of these are gamebreaking
 or likely to screw up the console, so don't worry 'bout that. [If a reader's
 got a good trick to put in this category, email me and I'll see if it's good
 'nough to stick here.]

INFINITE PARAGON POINTS
―――――――――――――――――――――――
 In Attican Beta's Hercules system (planet Eletania), there are colonies of
 space monkeys stretched across the landscape. Don't kill any monkeys in any
 way, whether by six-wheeling over 'em or blowing their heads off. When you
 find the monkey with the module -- which is part of the "Lost Module" side
 mission -- there will be paragon points earned. When said points are found,
 save and reload, then keep inspecting the monkey to keep getting the points
 repeatedly. This is an easy way to max out the Paragon gauge since it has no
 Charm/Intimidate prerequisites.

INFINITE PARAGON/RENEGADE POINTS
――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――
 This can be done on planet Noveria, which is a mandatory stop. First off,
 talk with Lorik Qu'in in the hotel bar and agree to get his garage pass in
 exchange for information (there are other ways to get the garage pass but
 this way is required). After the info's obtained, talk with Gianna Parasini
 to learn she wants him to testify against the administrator -- this opens
 up the "you should testify" option in Lorik's next conversation. Now, pick
 that option, choose the Charm/Intimidate-based reply, end after the convo
 ends, talk to him about Benezia. This will let the Charm/Intimidate options
 be chosen again and the player can go to town for free points.

 Two things: (1) the C/I options require 5 talent points each to appear (2)
 If you've already gotten the garage pass through Anoleis, this trick can't
 be done.

ANYONE CAN EQUIP ANY ARMOR
――――――――――――――――――――――――――
 This trick allows light-armor units to equip the heavy stuff; or, if you're
 a lunatic, vice versa! It can be explained in steps, but if you want to get
 the drop on doing it, just watch this: [ youtube.com/watch?v=Kg2f_4lzxS0 ]
 Some have claimed that the trick doesn't work in the Platinum Hits edition
 or after getting DLC content, but this ain't so.

EASY WEAPON-KILL ACHIEVEMENTS
―――――――――――――――――――――――――――――
 What do you know, we're back to the space monkeys of planet Eletania (in
 Attican Beta's Hercules system). These organic enemies can be easily killed
 with any weapon but don't respawn. The workaround? Save before killing them,
 do some monkey genocide, and reload the aforementioned save. You may wonder:
 do the kills revert? Nope! As long as the console isn't turned off or your
 gamertag isn't switched somehow, all kills will be registered and the weapon-
 -based achievements can be easily obtained.

―――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――
 ######################## Some spoilers may follow! ########################

 [Q] - Do I have to buy my licenses over on a New Game Plus (NGP)?
 [A] - Yes, all have to be reacquired.

 [Q] - Why don't you have a shop list / DLC content listed in the guide?
 [A] - Shops will change their contents every time the planet is visited,
       and as the game proceeds, the types get better -- there's no great way
       to document that (and I tried, believe me). As for DLC, I don't have
       it...simple as. =p

 [Q] - Is there a way around the 150-item limit?
 [A] - No -- you can only have 150 loose articles (weapons, upgrades, etc.)
       around. However, there is a way to keep more things than usual and
       that is by placing loose upgrades on extra weapons! Attached upgrades
       don't count towards the item limit, thus bypassing the quota somewhat.

 [Q] - Why can't I open this uncharted world's probe [etc.]?
 [A] - The Mako can actually DESTROY some of these if it gets too close, and
       the same goes for enemy fire (probably).

 [Q] - On the Feros Prothean Skyway, where are the geth reported below me?!
 [A] - There's a small entrance into a tunnel parallel to the highway, easily
       missable if you're not paying attention. Don't try to jump off the
       highway to the one below or anything, now!

 [Q] - I heard some armor types give special effects...what're they?
 [A] - Phoenix-type armor will regenerate health on the user, even if they've
       no normal means to do so. Equipment made by Devlon Industries -- being
       Liberator, Explorer, Survivor, and Thermal -- will shield the user from
       uncharted planets' environmental heat/cold hazards.

 [Q] - Is it possible to save all the Zhu's Hope colonists from the Thorian?
 [A] - Yes, it's possible to save all sixteen (16). The trick is to purchase
       a few grenade-limit upgrades ahead of time, get the Anti-Thorian Gas 1
       add-on in the isolated refugee camp, and hit two colonists with one
       grenade. If you're too close to the enemy and try to aim the grenade,
       it may go either go through the floor or hit only one colonist, so it's
       best to "snipe" the grenade from a mid-range spot. There's one grenade
       refill, and that's the medkit near where the tower and town connect.
       Any villager killed will die permanently, and this may affect optional
       assignments (try not to kill Ledra the shopkeep either). [NOTE: Melee
       attacks can work in place of grenades, apparently -- just be sure not
       to misfire accidentally!]
