After looking at all my options, I decided to go to Ilium because I had so many quests to complete there. I had to recruit the Justicar and the Assassin as well as help Miranda’s sister and her family relocate.
When I first got to Ilium, there was a lot of dialog. This was fine with me, because sometimes I feel more like shooting things and other times I feel like listening and learning about different things in the game. Tonight was more of a listening and learning night. For a change, I brought Mordin and Grunt with me. I talked to an Asari, who gave me a message from the Rachni queen. It’s nice to see a decision from the first game continuing into the second!
I also had to go find and talk to Liara. I missed her so it was nice to see her again! By talking to her, I found out where to go to find the Justicar and the Assassin and also got a little side quest to do. I completed the side quest, and then went on to look for the two potential recruits.
I ended up talking to someone about the Assassin first, but it sounded like it was going to require a lot of fighting and like I said, I’m not feeling like fighting tonight. I then continued to look for the Justicar, and since that one sounded like more talking and less fighting I went for it. However, it actually did require lots of fighting Eclipse mercenaries. Oh well. It wasn’t too bad. I used the particle beam, which at this point seems really overpowered but it made the fights really easy.
I ran into Conrad Verner from the first game, and he was being a real jerk and saying he was acting like me. It kind of hurt! I don’t think I’m that much of a jerk! I’m only mean when I have to be. Is this what people think of me? Ouch.
I mentioned before that I have been getting more Renegade points than I used to. The choices between what’s Renegade and what is Paragon is not as obvious to me as it was in the first game. Maybe I am a jerk! I’m still overwhelmingly Paragon though, so I don’t mind too much. If my Renegade points start catching up, I’ll have to be more careful!
I got the Justicar to join my team, and I look forward to seeing what she can do! Next time I plan on recruiting the Assassin.
