[HOT] : How to choose the best class for you in Mass Effect Legendary Edition Part two
On the other hand, if you haven’t come to Mass Effect with strong feelings about classic RPG character archetypes, you don’t have to make a clear choice. Mass Effect also offers three dual specialist classes – and in our experience, they can be a lot more fun and useful than committing to a relatively narrow goal.
This sometimes comes at a cost – the definition of two strengths often makes their weakness in the third specialty a handicap. However, it also adds a layer of complexity to the characters that you are arguably missing out on if you choose a single focus class.
- As the name suggests, the Vanguard are usually the first person on their team to enter the fray. Unfortunately, Vanguards are not as tough as soldiers and will need a good support structure so that their squad can heal them when they need it. They are far from pure cannon fodder, however, as their risky approach to combat – with a double hit of biotics and weaponry – will start to pay off as you master their specialties.
- The Sentinel class also has a meaningful name, as they tend to focus on monitoring their team and ensuring their well-being. As a result, they are somewhat dependent on their squad for combat support, as they have the lowest weapon capacity of any class. However, they have the widest array of other skills to draw upon, and their combination of biotics and tech can be extremely powerful when deployed tactically.
- What do you get when you combine a soldier and an engineer? Answer: a sniper and a hacker in one scary package! The Infiltrator does best in long range combat and takes a strategic approach to getting behind enemy lines. Unlike other techies, infiltrators do not act as a squad healer; their focus is firmly on damaging the enemy, making them the most offensive tech class.
Should you change character class in ME2 and ME3?
You cannot change classes in any of the Mass Effect Legendary Edition games without restarting from the beginning.
However, you can choose a different class when importing your Mass Effect save into Mass Effect 2 or Mass Effect 2 into Mass Effect 3.
The exact details of the classes vary slightly between games. There are a few tweaks to how each class works in later versions of the trilogy, mostly in the form of additional abilities.
Biotics users gain more powers that enhance their near-supernatural skills; tech people get more sophisticated gadgets, like drones and camouflage devices; and Combat Specialists benefit from quality-of-life improvements like increased accuracy and slow-mo bullet time as they line up their shots.
As always, at the end of the day, it comes down to personal preference. There is no penalty for switching classes when starting a new part of the trilogy, so there is no reason not to experience a new class in ME2 or ME3 if you see a different one than you think. that you prefer, or if you just feel like a currency.
However, we don’t feel like there are any classes that stand out in any particular game in the trilogy. That is, unless you’re trying to run on Insanity difficulty.
What is the best character class for the Insanity difficulty?
All three games in the Mass Effect Trilogy feature the Insanity difficulty. This higher difficulty level presents enemies that are much tougher in terms of health, attack accuracy and reaction speed, immunities, weapons and just about anything they can think of to get you. life more difficult.
You will need to complete all three games on Insanity difficulty if you want to get all the trophies / achievements in Mass Effect Legendary Edition.
When choosing a class for a game on Insanity difficulty, you might find that you have different priorities. If you’re planning on making a drastic change in your playstyle for the Insanity difficulty, you may also want to consider switching classes.
The general consensus is that the Madness difficulty becomes slightly easier if you play as a Combat Specialist class. Soldier is the obvious choice and seems to make it easier for you – although the trade-off, according to many longtime Mass Effect fans, is that Soldier is also the most boring class to play. (Of course, your experience may vary.)
If you’re one of those who can’t bring herself to play the entire trilogy as a Soldier, regardless of the perks, any of the dual specialization classes could take second place on the recommendation list.
Even Sentinel, which unlike the more obvious choices of Vanguard or Infiltrator does not incorporate the Combat specialization that makes the Solider class so desirable for these races, comes highly recommended – as the Sentinel’s ability to protect itself while guarding its enemies. at a distance more than makes up for his initial lack of initial aggression.
Ultimately, however, it’s important to remember that your own preferences and playstyle should inform your character class decisions, even on Madness difficulty. None of the classes make it impossible to complete the game on this difficulty, and you’re more likely to do well (and stay interested!) Playing as a class you love and have experience with.
Taking on this challenge as an Adept or Engineer may seem like adding an extra layer of difficulty to the most difficult task in the game, but if your preferred playstyle is firmly built around biotics or tech, then you absolutely should. go.
