First and foremost, I would like to say that this was one of my quickest playthroughs. I played this on Normal difficulty and it was pretty easy. After doing every single quest and obtaining every single upgrade (store-bought and scavenging), I clocked in about 17 hours, 30 minutes. Also, this was an ME1 import + NG+. Now, on to the important stuff.
Major ME1-related stuff:
- In this particular playthrough, I did not pursue a relationship with any of the main characters (i.e. Garrus or Jacob) as I wanted to try the “mini-romance” with Kelly.
- Since I had saved Kaidan from ME1, he was present on Horizon.
- Urdnot Wrex was alive and well as the new clan leader for the Krogans.
- Regrettably, the Council remained the same as in ME1 as I elected to save them.
- I appointed David Anderson as the Council representative for the humans.
- I’ve completed both of Liara’s quests.
- Although I shot Conrad Verner in the foot, I played along so that I could get a discount at the Weapons Merchant in Illium.
- I let the Rachni live in ME1, thus, the Asari messenger was present in Illium.
- I did all of the possible N7 missions (including Normandy Crash Site).
Recruitment / Loyalty Missions:
- I got all 12 party members
- (Samara Loyalty) I killed Morinth.
- (Garrus Loyalty) I let Garrus take the shot at Sidonis.
- (Tali Recruitment) Kal’Reegar survived and went on a “mini-rant” praising Tali’s accomplishments.
- (Tali Loyalty) Tali was not exiled from the Flotilla (despite having a slight name change).
- (Tali Loyalty) Since I did not give the Quarians the evidence of Rael’Zorah’s research, I do not remember having to make this choice.
- (Mordin Loyalty) I let Mordin have a copy of the data and then destroy the data from the computers (to ensure the data does not fall into the wrong hands).
- (Legion Loyalty) I decided to wipe out all the Geth.
- (Zaeed Loyalty) I saved the hostages and encouraged Zaeed to be more Paragon (I still do not know how to get the dialogue option to let him die in the flames).
Omega 4 Relay:
- I did everybody’s loyalty quests to ensure 100% chance of survival.
- All party members and Normandy crew members survived the ordeal.
