Wt 3iAt? The krogan prove able to survive the harsh environments of the rachni worlds and pursue the rachni into their nests, systematically eradicating queens and eggs. In gratitude for their aid during the Rachni Wars, the Council rewards the krogan a new homeworld. Free of the harsh environment of Tuchanka , the krogan population explodes.
Growing concerns about their expansion lead to the founding of the Special Tactics and Reconnaissance branch of the Citadel. Eventually the Council demands withdrawal from the asari colony of Lusia , but the krogan refuse. A preemptive strike is made on krogan infrastructures by the Spectres. The Krogan Rebellions begin. The Citadel Council makes first contact with the turians around this time and persuades them to aid in the war. After the krogan respond to the initial turian offensive by devastating turian colonies with weapons of mass destruction, the turians vow to stop the krogan from ever becoming a threat again.
Sometime after the turians join the galactic community, the volus are accepted as a client race of the Turian Hierarchy. The krogan population starts its decline.
The turians fill the military and peacekeeping niche left by the decimated krogan. The Citadel Conventions are drawn up in the wake of the conflict.
In Citadel space, the claims are dismissed as unsubstantiated rumors and tall tales. Estimated date In the Andromeda galaxy, the Jardaan begin deploying Remnant machines to the Heleus Cluster to terraform barren planets into life-supporting worlds.
Rila and Falere accept exile, but Morinth flees. Samara takes the oaths of the asari justicars and pursues her errant daughter for the next years. Aria is hired by the station's warlord as an enforcer and quickly becomes one of his most trusted lieutenants.
Fearing a geth uprising, the quarians begin dismantling them. The geth revolt against their quarian masters. In the resulting conflict --known to the geth as the Morning War--the geth systematically drive the quarians from their own worlds. The surviving quarians are reduced to living as spacefaring nomads aboard the Migrant Fleet. Contrary to expectations, the geth do not venture outside the former quarian systems into wider Citadel space, instead isolating themselves from the rest of the galaxy behind the Perseus Veil.
As punishment for creating the geth, the Citadel Council closes the quarian embassy on the Citadel. Completion of the mega-structure, which would allow the geth to maximize their collective processing capacity, is the long-term goal of geth civilization. Humanity becomes a spacefaring race. Cohen the cure. Asari commandos are powerful biotic warriors. As soon as you gain control of Shepard.
Remain behind cover in an effort to avoid the asari commando's biotic abilities. She cannot be reasoned with. Captain Ventralis and the guards will attack if you do so.
To create the cure. Do so four times to acquire the cure. Kill the rachni soldier at the end and then proceed through the door. Rift Station Part 2 Objective: Alestia's Attack Han Olar told you that the geth came from the sealed maintenance area. The bar in the bottom-right corner of the screen displays Benezia's power level. Move through the corridor until you reach the ventilation room.
That means Benezia must be somewhere within. Return to Cohen Once Alestia and the geth have been dealt with. Once you have the cure. Their Stasis ability in particular can make a mess of things. Once you've given Dr. You are rewarded with XP.
Rachni Queen Objective: It also counts as a mission if you are working to unlock any of the 'Ally' achievements. You can either allow the rachni queen to live.
Talk to Yaroslev Tartakovsky in the Hot Labs to learn about the rachni race's reemergence from its supposed extinction. Once the coast is clear.
You'll gain control of Shepard shortly after speaking to Benezia. She asks for a chance to rebuild her species as a more peaceful race. However there is plenty of XP to be had in the Hot Labs. Showing mercy and setting the rachni queen free yields a large amount of Paragon points.
Benezia then summons a second batch of geth snipers. When the power level bar has been depleted. This objective is optional. Shepard and crew approach the stunned Matriarch. Benezia summons a group of geth troopers and snipers. Matriarch Benezia When the asari commando's have been dealt with. Take out the geth you can see from your current position.
Use cover to eliminate the snipers without taking damage. Using an asari commando's body as a medium. Yaroslev happens to be one. Yaroslev Mira Terminal Noveria: The Hot Labs Objective: Arm the Purge Ask Mira about the 'neutron purge.
Kill the rachni and then retrieve the purge codes from Yaroslev's corpse. Only administrators carry such a key card. Code Omega The Hot Labs quickly fills with rachni soldiers and workers. Ask him how to activate the purge.
Now that you have the code. The purge is set to go off in two minutes. Quickly clear the room of rachni and get in the elevator to complete the mission. Rachni Purge Codes Objective: Acquired Codes Return to the Mira terminal and interact with it. Virmire A salarian reconnaissance team on Virmire has information on Saren.
Travel to Virmire to meet with the team. Virmire Objective: The path to the first gatehouse is very straightforward, just be sure not to drive off course as the Mako will sink, and that's game over. You'll encounter geth drones and troopers along the way, but luckily the Mako's weaponry can make short work of them.
Look to your radar to locate hostiles and take them out as you move towards the gatehouse. Unfortunately your radar jams as you near the first barricade, so slow down at this point and scan the area up ahead for drones and troopers.
The first gatehouse is heavily occupied by geth troops. Without your radar it can be hard to spot the smaller drones, so use the Mako's zoom and visually scan the area up ahead. There are additional geth on the gatehouse's second floor. The second floor can be reached by heading up the stairs on the left side of the gatehouse. There is no need to go up there, but there are storage lockers to open, as well as XP to be had by killing the geth.
Geth armatures and colossi are positioned beyond the gatehouse, so proceed with caution. Keep your distance and use the Mako's cannon to destroy them. Return to the Citadel Race Against Time: Sovereign Objective: Report to the Council The Citadel Council is content to drop the issue with Saren, claiming that he is no longer a threat. Shepard receives no support from Ambassador Udina on this matter, and the ambassador effectively grounds the Normandy.
Meet with Anderson Just as it seems that this mission is over, back aboard the Normandy you receive word from Joker that Anderson wishes to speak with you at the Citadel. You are told to meet him at the Flux club in the Upper Wards.
This is your last chance to complete any of the assignments you have yet to complete or trigger at the Citadel, as you won-t be able to return here once you-ve made off with the Normandy. Keep in mind that any assignment that requires you to return to the Citadel cannot be completed at this point.
Anderson is seated at a table near the back of the club. Anderson tells you that he can bypass the Normandy lockdown by breaking into Citadel control and using one of the consoles there, though this puts him at significant risk due to the presence of armed guards in that area.
Ask Anderson about other options; since Udina ordered the lockdown, Anderson could break into the ambassador-s office and hack into his computer.
Anderson will succeed in unlocking the Normandy regardless of the option you choose, but the cutscene that the Udina option offers is wholly more satisfying and prevents Anderson from coming to harm. Go to Ilos A word of warning: Once you land on Ilos you cannot return to the Normandy, so complete any assignments left undone before proceeding.
Check out the 'Optional Assignments' section and its sub-sections for a complete list. Return to the Docking Bay and board the Normandy to trigger the departure cutscene. Take out the group of geth in the courtyard and start towards the elevator at the other end of the area. Sprint to the end of the area and take the series of ramps down to the reach the lower ruins.
Move north until you reach a small area that contains geth stalkers and sappers. You could also pursue this option if you are willing to part with some Omni-gel. Ilos Landing Ilos: Find the Conduit Objective: Override the Security Saren cannot be pursued until you find some way to open the door that shut behind him.
Of particular danger are the two geth armatures. Decrypt the terminal. Enter the Mako and use its weaponry to destroy the geth coming from the south. You'll be facing plenty of geth here. When the perimeter is clear. This area is dense with geth. This option requires a high Decryption skill. Take cover behind one of the large stone blocks in the area. Stop Saren from finding the Conduit on Ilos to prevent Sovereign from carrying out its devastating plan.
The terminal is next to the entrance to this section. Ilos This is it. Overkill to destroy it as quickly as possible. Blast the rocket troopers as you drive by and continue moving towards the large barrier visible in the distance. Return to the Landing Zone. The elevator leads up to the Security Station. The first stretch is clear of geth. Use the Armature Repair stations at the head of the bay to raise some geth armatures to help wipe out the remaining geth.
Open the Security Panel to activate a strange recording. Security Panel Recording Objective: Enter the Archives Make your way to the elevator at the north end of the Security Station and take it to the Plaza area.. At the center of the Armature Bay stands a number of geth troops and a hulking geth prime.
The prime is one powerful variant of geth. What follows is a lengthy conversation with the ancient Prothean VI. Drop into the trench and drive down the path.
Vigil details the Reaper attack. Activate the elevator to reach the Watcher's Chamber. To the Archives Barrier Exit the Mako once you reach the barrier and enter the elevator to the right of it. A group of geth rocket troopers stand ready at the archives' end. Move to the other end of the walkway and interact with Vigil. You'll soon come to another group of rocket troopers. Blast the rocket troopers with the Mako's cannon and then immediately turn your attention to the colossus.
Keep a fair distance between yourself and the colossus and use the cannon and machine gun to damage it. Vigil Race Against Time: Conduit Return to the Mako and continue down the path. Move the Mako back and forth to avoid taking damage from the colossus' projectiles and continue attacking until it falls. Hit the ramp to warp to the besieged Citadel. Geth Colossus A few geth rocket troopers are stationed along final stretch.
You have forty seconds to make it to the Conduit after the cutscene. The impressive mass relay known as the Conduit is visible in the distance as you near the end of the trench run.
Immediately start down the decline and make haste to the Conduit. Ignore the geth forces along the way and continue moving towards the Conduit's launch pad. The two krogan are then followed by a geth destroyer and a juggernaut i. The Final Battle This is it. Sprint to the next turret. A pair of krogan warriors occupy the initial corridor. The turret across from the first requires an average Electronics skill to open. Turret Geth Dropship Once the geth dropship has been destroyed.
Kill the husks nearby and then ride the elevator to trigger a cutscene. There's no turning back now! Race Against Time: Final Battle Objective: Save the Citadel Make your way to the elevator at the other end of the walkway. There is a third turret a bit further from the second. Sprint towards the first Citadel Defense Turret up ahead and open it using the control at its base. Fight your way to the opposite end of the corridor and head up the ramp to reach the upper area. Proceed with caution as this section is occupied by a powerful krogan warlord.
Take out the geth troopers and snipers in the first section and then make your way to the next. Move down into the Maintenance Shaft once you regain control of Shepard. Use your squad's strongest abilities and pound the warlord with gunfire to bring him down quickly. A geth dropship enters the area and drops a number of geth troops. Keep your distance from the krogan because he is prone to charge. The tunnel quickly fills with geth as a tram car rams into its side.
Geth Heavy Turret Fight your way to the other end of the area. Destroy the geth as you move up to the Council Chamber to confront Saren. Saren Saren is completely indoctrinated now. While this can be a two part battle.
If Shepard is trained with a Sniper Rifle. Keep a close eye on Saren at all times because he can easily line up a shot while on his glider. Doing so earns you a large amount of Paragon or Renegade points and will also net you the 'Charismatic' achievement if you missed it back on Virmire.
Having Saren kill himself would definitely be preferable though. If you were able to use all of the blue or red options that were available during your encounter with Saren on Virmire. Seek cover close enough to a turret and damage it from there. If Shepard lacks the necessary training. The proceeding area is guarded by four heavy turrets.
