"Mass Effect" Game Guide



Planet Assignments/Sidequests

In addition to the major objectives of the game, Mass Effect offers the inquisitive player the opportunity to complete Assignments/Sidequests. The sidequests are optional and vary from turning on the water on Feros to scouring the Galaxy for rare elements and everything in between.

Assignments are initiated by either talking to a person who needs your help, decrypting a computer console or terminal, or by exploring the Galaxy and receiving distress signals.

Completing Assignments will earn you Experience Points, Credits, and often weapons/ammo/armor. It's a great way to level up your character. In fact, on my second playthrough of the game, having compeleted all sidequests, I ended up as a level 48 with over 3.5 million credits and a slew of great weaponry.

Happy sidequesting!



When to do Assignments/Sidequests

It really doesn't matter when you begin your sidequests but you definitely want to have done everything you can prior to going to Virmire (you'll be barred from the Citadel later on and won't be able to complete a few of the tasks if you're not careful).

I do recommend waiting until you're a bit into the game as the weapons/ammo/armor that you receive will get better the higher your level.



The Citadel


Scan the Keepers


Location: Talk to Chorban, the scientist working on the keeper in Citadel: Tower.

You have the scanning device to scan each of the 21 keepers.

The keepers are the spider-like insects.

1. Next to where you got the side quest.
2. In Volus and Elcor's Office, Presidium.
3. On the balcony outside the Embassy Lounge, Presidium.
4. In the unlabeled room, NW of C-Seq HQ, Presidium. The Elcor, Kaidan Alenko is in this room, for reference.
5. At the bottom of the stairs, one room/area to the right of Emporium, Presidium.
6. Outside of Consort Chambers, Presidium.
7. In Upper Markets, Upper Wards.
8. Just outside the Med Clinic, Upper Wards.
9. In the C-Sec Academy, Lower Wards (accessed via stairs near Med Clinic).
10. In Traffic Control, Security.

Asari Consort


Location: Talk to Sha'ira in Consort Chambers, Presidium.

Talk to General Septimus in Chora's Den in Lower Wards. Appeal to his honor and make him act like a General. He'll give you another sidequest if you want it, Xeltan's Complaint.

Go back to the Consort Chambers and talk to Sha'ira. You'll gain lots of XP and Credits.

Note, if you're going to complete Xeltan's Complaint for Gen. Septimus then you should go do that before you re-visit Sha'ira.

Xeltan's Complaint (Xeltan Convinced)


Prerequisite: Complete Asari Consort sidequest.

Location: Talk to General Septimus in Chora's Den, Lower Wards.

Speak to Xeltan in the Volus and Elcor Office, embassy area, Presidium for some XP.

If you haven't yet re-visited Sha'ira, do so now and after she gives you words of advice, ask, "That's it?" to get the Prothean Trinket.

The Fan


Location: Talk to Conrad Verner in Upper Markets, Upper Wards.

When the game is finished, this sidequest is complete. I don't know why.

Reporter's Request


Location: Talk to Emily Wong, in the area between Upper Markets and Med Clinic, Upper Wards.

Once you get Tali into your squad you'll have some information for Wong. However, you'll need some more. Revisit Fist's Office in Chora's Den and grab the Optical Storage Disc. Return to Wong in the Upper Wards. Give her the discs for some XP.

Jahleed's Fears (Jahleed and Chorban)


Location: North part of C-Sec Offices, Security.

Jahleed thinks Chorban, the scientist who tasked you with scanning keepers, is trying to kill him. Talk to Chorban in Lower Markets. If you want to keep scanning Keepers, tell him you'll do so. Then, go talk to Jahleed in the C-Sec Academy.

Tell him "It's Okay", or that you're helping him and the task will be complete.

Homecoming


Location: Talk to Samesh Bhatia in Presidium, near the reception desk.

Go into the Embassy Lounge and talk to Clerk Bosker. You'll notice that there are two grayed-out choices: "That isn't right." and "I'm releasing the body." Actually, these two choices may or may not be grayed-out for you depending upon your Charm and/or Intimidate Skills. You can view their status by going to Mission Computer >> Squad and looking in the Talents section.

To complete this task you need to either charm or intimidate Clerk Bosker. You earn this by becoming a Spectre (see main walkthrough).

Once you've earned it, talk to Bosker again and either charm or intimidate him. Talk to Bhatia to finish the task.

Rita's Sister and Chellick


Location: To to Rita in Flux Nightclub, Flux and Wards Access.

Talk to Jenna in Chora's Den. She isn't in the chatting mood. On the way out, you'll bump into Chellick who tells you to go to C-Sec Academy. Go there and talk to Chellick. Tell him you'll help. You'll need to go to Lower Markets and speak to Jax.

Tell him that you have the money and then give it to him by selecting "Sure".

Head back to the C-Sec academy to talk to Chellick. This will complete the quest.

Signal Tracking


Location: Investigate the gambling machine at the back of Flux Casino, Flux and Wards Access.

Head to the Wards Access Corridor, accessed via the "To Presidium" elevator near east entrance to the Alleyway in the Upper Wards (also accessible via "To Wards Access" along the north side of Presidium). Go to the larger of the side-rooms off the hallway and locate the screen on the wall labeled, "Signal Source." Investigate it.

Head to the Bank and Investigate the back wall.

Go get a pen and paper.
Head to the Emporium, next to the Bank, and go up the stairs in the back. Go to the right and Investigate the signal source. Talk to the machine and tell it "Enough Talk". You now have to disarm the machine in a limited amount of time. To do this, you must use the Y, X, and A buttons to enter a 7 button sequence. If you press a button and it flashes green, that was a correct entry. If you see red, it wasn't and you'll start over.

This will complete the task for a good deal of XP.

Presidium Prophet


Location: Talk to the Hanar (floating pink being with tentacles) in the northwest area of Presidium.

Talk to the C-Sec officer (next to the Hanar) to learn about the Evangelical Permit, necessary for the Hanar to speak. Talk again to the Hanar and offer to buy the Permit for him (this is if you don't have any charm or intimidate to access the grayed-out options). Once the Hanar agrees to taking your money, talk again to the C-Sec Officer. He'll thank you and the task will be complete.

You could also wait to do this task until you have the charm/intimidate skills.

The Fourth Estate


Location: Talk to Al-Jalani in C-Seq Academy after you've clear the first four missions (Artemis Tau, Faros, Noveria, and Virmire).

Simply talk with her to complete the sidequest.

Schells the Gambler (if Paragon)


Location: Talk to Schells outside Flux after you've clear the first four missions (Artemis Tau, Faros, Noveria, and Virmire).

Enter Flux and use the Quasar machines at least five times. Return to him.

Negotiator's Request (if Renegade)


Location: Talk to Keelr outside Flux after you've clear the first four missions (Artemis Tau, Faros, Noveria, and Virmire).

Head to the Med Clinic and get the drug he needs. Bring it back to him. Or, convince him that he's an addict.

Noveria


Espionage


Note, you may want to save before talking to Vargas in case you don't like the outcome.

Location: Talk to Mallene Calis in the Hotel Bar, Mezzanine.

Head to the nearby Rafael Vargas and talk to him. You can either turn Mallene in (Paragon), fail at talking to him, or succeed in hacking (Renegade). To succeed at hacking, keep him talking. His tell is that he'll rub his neck when something is bothering him. In this case, when he gives you the price tell him that it sounds too high. Then, ask if his company is doing anything illegal. No matter the outcome, go back and talk to Mallene to give her the result.

Feros




Geth in the Tunnels


Location: Talk to Fai Dan after you clear the tower of Geth.

Fight your way down the "Stairs down to Tunnels". Once in the tunnels fight your way to the Transmitter Tower. Shoot it to destroy it.

Varren Meat


Location: Talk to Davin Reynolds in the colony pod structure.

In the Tunnels, go out to "Collapsed Highway Section" (aka, Collapsed Bridge) and kill all of the Varren, including the Alpha Male.

Go back to Davin and tell him of your handy work.

Power Cells


Location: Talk to May O'Connell, just outside the east entrance to the colony pod structure.

In the Tunnels, go out to "Collapsed Highway Section" (aka, Collapsed Bridge). After you kill all of the Varren to make it safe, go up to the vehicle and "Remove Power Cells".

Deliver them to May.

Water Restoration


Location: Talk to Macha Doyle, also outside the colony pod structure.

In the Tunnels, "Open Valve" on the three Water Mains. All three are along the same tunnel (note the water pipes).

Data Recovery


Location: Talk to Gavin Hossle in the bunker in Refugee Camp (at the end of the Skyway).

Go to ExoGeni Upper Level using the east path leading off from the "Main Level" room with the blue force field (after you see the first Claw).

Get ready for a battle with multiple Krogans. I recommend using throw, lift, etc. to temporarily incapacitate one or two of them while you lay into the other with the assault rifle. Make sure that you have a good assault rilfe and that it's upgraded with an ammo that does extra damage to organic life (depending on in what order you're doing the first three missions you may have great weapons or not-so-great weapons). A few grenades is never a bad idea as well, particularly when they're grouped up before they come running.

When it's clear, go to the back of the room and you'll see "Gavin Hossle's Console". Use it to grab the data.

Return to Refugee Camp and give it to Gavin.

Virmire


Talk to Wrex


Location: After talking to the Captain at the Salarian base, talk to Wrex.

He'll be angry and will most likely end up dead unless you have the Charm skills to prevent it.

Assisting Kirrahe's Team


Location: You'll automatically receive this sidequest upon starting the assault on Saren's base.

Deactivate the Triangulation Tower at the Communications Tower.

Destroy all of the Drones on the Refueling Platform.

Deactivate the alarms at the Security Console near when you entered the base (Base Entry).

Finish the mission on Virmire and the task will be complete.
