    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    This guide is for the many classes and skills in the action-RPG mass
    effect. It will hopefully aid you in picking the right class for your
    Shepard and the teammates you'll take along in your Squad. If you have
    any further questions, corrections or comments, please e-mail me at
    Zerwif@gmail.com and i'll try to get back to you.

    Classes: Human                                                  [03CLH]
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    These are the classes that Commander Shepard can choose from. Pick
    wisely, as each brings a very different playing style. Other human
    Squad members are also members of some of these classes.
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    Soldier                                                         [CHSOL]
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    The pure combat master. Soldiers can use any of the four weapon types
    effectivly, and are the toughest class as they are able to wear Heavy
    Armor and regenarate health. A very good class for first time players.
    This is the class of Default/Quick Shepard, Ashley, and Jenkins.
    Shepard can upgrade to a Commando to improve offensive power, or Shock
    Trooper to boost defense power.
    
    Ideal Teammates: Tali, Liara, Kaiden. Even with great combat abilities,
    there can still be dangers when swarmed by enemies. Having allies with
    skills like Lift, Sigularity and Medicine will make things less
    troublesome.
    
    Base Skills-
    Pistol 
    Assault Rifle
    Combat Armor 
    Assault Training 
    Soldier
    
    Unlocked Skills-
    Shotgun
    Sniper Rifle
    First Aid
    Fitness
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    Engineer                                                        [CHENG]
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    Engineers are a pure Tech user. Though lighter on damage, Engineers
    can quickly cripple enemies and keep allies safe. Addtionally, they can
    repair the Mako much faster and crack locks and electronics. A good
    choice for a more supportive style of play. Shepard can upgrade to
    Operative to strength debuffing, or Medic to help first-aid healing. 
    
    Ideal Teammates: Liara, Ashley, Wrex. You'll need strong allies to help
    take down enemies. Because you can unlock and repair on your own, there
    isn't much need for other Tech users.   
    
    Base Skills-
    Pistol 
    First Aid
    Electronics
    Decryption
    Engineer
    
    Unlocked Skills-

    Adept                                                           [CHADE]
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    Adepts are masters of Biotic powers. Not only can they provide high
    damage, but they can also keep enemies at bay by throwing them around
    and suspending them in the air. Though they lack high healing or
    shields, they can gain protection from Barrier. Shepard can advance to
    Nemesis to improve offensive Biotics that manipulate the enviroment,
    or Bastion to improve defensive Biotics to pervent harm.  
    
    Ideal Teammates: Ashley, Tali, Garrus. You'll need allies to help
    decrypt, heal, and repair. It also helps that they can actively fight
    while your skills recharge. 
    
    Base Skills-
    Basic Armor
    Throw
    Warp
    Barrier

    Infiltrator                                                     [CHINF]
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    The Infiltrator is a combination of Combat and Engineering. They are
    well protected with good shields and healing; they can debuff enemies
    then safely pick them off one-by-one with their Sniper Rifle. They have
    a bit more trouble in close range fights. Shepard can upgrade to
    Commando to greatly improve sniping, or Operative to add to disabling
    Techs.  
    
    Ideal Teammates: Kaiden, Wrex, Liara. It's a very good idea to bring
    along Biotic users who can distract and throw around enemies while you
    take them down.
    
    Base Skills-
    Pistol
    Tactical Armor
    Electronics
    Decryption
    Infiltrator
    
    Unlocked Skills-
    Sniper Rifle
    Fitness

    Sentinel                                                        [CHSEN]
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    Sentinels combine Techs and Biotics, giving them great abilities to
    support the squad. They however are completely lacking in combat
    skills, making them the worst choice for weapons and armor. Kaiden is
    also a member of this class, is better with both types of skills and
    the Pistol, but cannot gain the Marksman ability. Shepard can advance
    to Medic to improve healing, or Bastion to improve protective Biotics. 
    
    Ideal Teammates: Wrex, Garrus, Ashley. Since you'll be lacking in the 
    damage department, it's a good idea to bring along allies that have
    high Combat training to distract foes while you support the team. 
    
    Base Skills-
    Throw
    Barrier
    Decryption
    First Aid
    Sentinel

    Vanguard                                                        [CHVAN]
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    The Vanguard combines Combat with high damage Biotics. They have many
    abilities to quickly annihilate foes, but in turn are very vulnerable
    themselves. Choose this class if you like kamikaze style play. Shepard
    can upgrade to Shock Trooper to improve Combat defenses, or Nemesis to
    further strengthen offensive Biotics.       
    
    Ideal Teammates: Garrus, Kaiden, Tali. You'll need someone with Techs
    to help with unlocking, repairing and healing. There is nothing worse
    than being greatly damaged but have medi-gels that recover very little.  
    
    Base Skills-
    Pistol
    Assault Training
    Throw
    Warp

    Classes: Alien                                                  [04CLA]
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    Four members of your party have special classes similar to the ones
    Shepard can be, however several skills are changed to make them play
    differently. 
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 
    Turian Agent                                                    [CATAG]
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    Turian Agent is Garrus' class. It is a modified version of Infiltrator,
    but is geared more for offensive Combat due to Assault Rifle and
    Assault Training. He's both deadly once trained with Sniper Rifles and
    can help aid the Squad with Techs.  
    
    Base Skills-
    Assault Rifle
    Tactical Armor
    Decryption
    First Aid
    Turian Agent
    
    Unlocked Skills-
    Sniper Rifle
    Assault Training

    Krogan Battlemaster                                             [CAKBA]
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    The Krogan Battlemaster is Wrex's class. It has somewhat like a
    Vanguard, but built even more for close range combat, and less potent
    Biotics. With Combat Armor and Fitness he can become an unstoppable
    tank. If you found enemy Krogan to be a pain, just wait till you have
    one fighting on your side.
    
    Base Skills-
    Assault Rifle
    Combat Armor 
    Warp
    Barrier
    Krogan Battlemaster
    
    Unlocked Skills-

    Quarian Machinist                                               [CAQMA]
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    Quarian Machinist is Tali's class. It is based on the Engineer class,
    however while she doesn't have the added defensive power of Medicine,
    she makes up for it with the power of Shotgun blasts. She also has
    some of the highest Shields of any character, allowing her to survive
    some of the worst attacks.
    
    Base Skills-
    Pistol
    Basic Armor
    Electronics
    Decryption
    Qaurian Machinist
    
    Unlocked Skills-
    Shotgun
    First Aid

    Asari Scientist                                                 [CAASC]
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    Asari Scientist is Liara's class. The class is an Adept but sacrifices
    what little Combat skills it had for Techs. This makes her a very
    deadly squad member with some limited support. Keep her well protected
    and she'll destroy not only the enemy, but every object in the room.
    
    Base Skills-
    Throw

    Combat skills improve damage and accuary with weapons, the defense
    power of armor, and abilities to restore Shields, and lower cooldowns
    times.

    Pistol                                                          [SCPIS]
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    Though Pistols aren't very strong of a weapon, but it's very accurate
    and overheats far less often. Might as well stick with this weapon if
    you don't have better training, or are untrained with any weapon.
    Putting points into this skill improves its power and accuracy.
    Addtionally, it will unlock the Marksman ability which will make your
    pistol fire much faster and with greater accuaracy.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    Shotguns are very deadly at close ranges, but have low rate of fire
    and very inaccurate, making them fairly bad from fruther away. A good
    choice for characters that have the armor and shields to get up close.
    Points in this skill improve damage and accuarcy and open the Carnage
    ability, which increases the blast radius, making one able to to take
    out large gourps.

    Assault Rifles offer a quick barrage of shots. It has a high rate of
    fire and decent damage and accuracy, making it a good idea at medium
    range. Careful to not let it overheat, though. Points in this skill
    increase damage and accuary and grants the Overkill ability, which
    makes attacks even more rapid.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    Sniper Rifles are great for taking out foes from a distance, however
    in untrained hands aiming is nearly impossbile. Putting points in
    this skill not only adds damage and accuarcy, but makes aiming much
    more stable; it also adds the Assassination ability, which will greatly
    add to damage, allowing you in many cases to one-shot kill the most
    hardend of foes.

    further with great armor, high hit points, and Immunity, is pretty
    much invincable for awhile.
