Add Codex Link Edit

A link should be add to the Main Categories for the Codex category. Just a thought. -- 22:42, 13 March 2009 (UTC)

Featured articles Edit

Info on featured articles can be found on Mass Effect Wiki:Featured content. Create and nominate more! :) Kirkburn (talk) 13:29, 12 November 2007 (UTC)

I've been coming here for a long time, and I always see that the featured article is Indoctrination. Meanwhile, a quick search of articles in the "Featured Articles" category gives over 74 results. So why has Indoctrination been up for well over half a year? I think we should have some kind of rotation system put in place. That or delete it altogether if no one will take up the challenge of maintaining it. Any suggestions? Yoheresmoreshow (talk) 21:36, April 25, 2013 (UTC)

Recent Changes Edit

  • The Planets and Space stations categories are both covered by Star Systems so I deleted them. Also changed the link for Systems to go to Milky_Way. (Unsigned)
  • Changed the link to the release trailer on the main page since the older one was not working. The new video is on Youtube here. Darkdrium 06:07, 25 July 2008 (UTC)

Cleaning up the list Edit

I cleaned up the main list as several of the links were covered by more comprehensive sections.

Armor and Weapons are both covered by the Equipment section. Systems is covered by the Milky Way section.

I added those items because the "Contents" section is an index of what's inside this wiki and every listing page, including those part of a larger category, should be represented. Armor should be more comprehensive than the armor section of Equipment (and Heavy Armor more comprehensive on its subject), same for Weapons and so on. Therefore we should include them for easy indexing, the purpose of that section, without sending users through multiple pages.
Also, please sign your comments on talk pages with four tildes (~~~~). --avfanatic (talk) 00:49, 30 November 2007 (UTC)

Looking for more Admins Edit

I am looking for more Administrators as some have tended to leave and I now am quite busy with work. I will still be around but not as much and with the constant vandalisms and new users I need more people to help out. So if you want become an admin go here Mass Effect Wiki:Requests for Adminship. It's not that difficult just keep checking the recent changes page for new people to say hello to and make sure no unregistered people are adding things they shouldn't. Thanks. aa

General Articles Edit

A lot of articles about actions (like in the Game Guide) are written from a Xbox point of view, this should be changed to also reflect it's now a multi-platform game. I'd do it if I run into it, but I'm not playing the game yet, so I really don't know anything about it. It's on my to-buy-list, that's why I'm reading this wiki. Just to improve overall quality, I say what I have to say.-- 20:20, 18 June 2008 (UTC)

Redesign Edit

I've given the main page a redesign, but kept all the info, and the colour scheme - you can find out more about why on User talk:Kirkburn/Dev. Thanks! Kirkburn (talk) 12:09, 20 June 2008 (UTC)

Featured Media Edit

Hello. It's been some time since I've been here. Bioware released today another video for Mass Effect 2, which should be put under the featured media. I would do it myself, but I have no idea how and fear for breaking the main page with a useless edit. Here is the link. :) Darkdrium 21:43, 15 May 2009 (UTC)

Good thinking. Actually we need a better system for nominating featured media and featured articles. We have some great stuff on here and it's not being shown off. --Tullis 22:15, 15 May 2009 (UTC)

KOTOR Parelels Edit

does anyone think we should have a page containing ingame parelels toStar Wars: Knights of the Old Republic? Drsdino 02:59, 23 May 2009 (UTC)

Not really. There aren't enough, and besides, Mass Effect is influenced more by classic sci-fi than Star Wars. If there are parallels that leap out at you, they're probably better placed on pages' Trivia sections. That would make them easier to find. --Tullis 03:52, 23 May 2009 (UTC)

well why not Halo then? what I've seen a lot of parelels with the last level of combat evolved. specificly the race to the Conduit on Ilos. Drsdino 18:05, 23 May 2009 (UTC)

Ditto: if you see parallels that really stand out, add them to Trivia. But I wouldn't say they warrant an entire page to themselves. Like I said, such a page probably wouldn't see much traffic; adding them to Trivia sections would give comments more coverage. : ) --Tullis 20:20, 23 May 2009 (UTC)


And? What of it? One of the writers of ME and ME2 (remember, there were multiple writers, not just one person, and the lead writer of ME2 was not the lead writer of ME) now works for ZeniMax. Does that automatically mean that there will now be ME references in Fallout 4 and in The Elder Scrolls V? No. It's possible to write pieces for two totally separate franchises without any crossover whatsoever. SpartHawg948 21:14, July 17, 2010 (UTC)

Well how about a page noting all or any similarities, story, character or names wise, that stand out to other series. Or even if the game's structure is similar, for instance I have noticed what I though were references or nods to other series - games, films & books. Especial the way ME1 & ME2 were structured. I mean ME1 was BIG, full of side quests, a nice long main story, detailed character backgrounds & emotional twists throughout. While ME2 was smaller, shorter but more compelling. KOTOR & KOTOR II were structured exactly the same way. Of course they're both quite different, but it's a similarity that stands out for me.

A lot of other similarities are in ME & ME2 as well, weather to Star Wars or other media, and although I agree that each media doesn't really merit a page dedicated to it's own similarities, one page showing all of them probably would be worth it. Awesome Thy Life 16:33, July 17, 2010 (UTC) Awesome Thy Life 16:32, July 17, 2010 (UTC) Syricus

And how about no. We don't know if BioWare did anything on KotOR II apart from recommend Obsidian Entertainment for developement. Becuase this is an encyclopedia of the Mass Effect Universe, and is written from an in-game perspective, an article like that would just stand out horribly. Noted parallels between KotOR and Mass Effect are detalied where they appropiate. The reason KotOR II is so short is because it was relased 18 months before it was supposed to becuase of LucasArts pressuring Obsidian to release it. However again becuase we don't know if BioWare did anything on KotOR II, making a note goes against our policies and what we have established here of only providing links between Mass Effect and other BioWare games. If we know that BioWare did anything on KotOR II, which we don't, or developed it themselves, then it would be a different story. Unfotunatly again we don't know if they did anything apart from recommend Obsidian for the job. So we can only connect KotOR, and not KotOR II, and I am really getting tired of removing references from that game. KotOR parallels are noted where apporpiate becuase that was developed by BioWare, and KotOR II triiva isn't allowed becuase of the reasons I stated above. Lancer1289 18:13, July 17, 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, I don't want to open that door. There are similarities, parallels, and references to many sci-fi works, genres, franchises, series, etc, other than Star Wars. And if we do a Star Wars page, then we'll need a Star Trek page, a Starship Troopers page, a Babylon 5 page, a Warhammer whatever page, a Matrix page, we'll have people fighting for a Stargate page (if my recent exchange with someone who wanted to reopen the Commander Shepard is a Lt. Colonel John Sheppard reference and tried to say that mass relays were a reference to stargates is any indicator). Oh, and Dr Who, that one pops up from time to time, and don't forget all the random sci-fi games and such. The point being, there are a myriad of influences from many sources. Star Wars (and KOTOR and KOTOR II in particular) seems to have been no more of an influence than any of these others, and I'd dare say are actually less of an influence on the series than some others are, namely Starship Troopers, so I agree that this proposed Star Wars page is simply not needed. SpartHawg948 21:14, July 17, 2010 (UTC)
Fair enough. I just though it'd be interesting. I suppose I didn't think it through. I mean found this discussion and I thought 'Oh I've noticed similarities to KOTOR,
Matrix, Terminator and even Lord of the Rings, amongst others, as well. But why not have just one page that people can put in similarities that they think is
worthwhile rather than one for each franchise, genre ect.' But thinking it over, that'd probably just be a waste of time, it wouldn't be constructive in any way and
would probably even be spamed by people adding every obscure little thing they think is a reference and other people deleting what they think is stupid.
Oh, by the way, I didn't know that Bioware didn't have much to do with KOTOR II. So I suppose that the way they're structured is just a coincidence. Sorry about
trying resurrect, & change slightly, a stupid idea. Really, I should of thought it through. Just out of interest, do you happen to know why ME2 came with so little
side quests in comparison to ME1? I suppose the best answer is that Bioware kept quite a bit of it out to release it in DLC. But Bioware were planning to
release a lot more DLC than they did with ME1, and that had plenty of side missions. I'm just asking what you think. And again, sorry for being a bit of an idiot...

E3 trailer Edit

I've added the new E3 trailer. Hope nobody minds.

BorderlineWaxwork 09:20, 30 May 2009 (UTC)

I certainly don't, means I don't have to fiddle with that irritating YouTube link. : ) Thanks. --Tullis 13:16, 30 May 2009 (UTC)

Suggestions, differentiating the games and content in the series Edit

Split to User talk:Tullis.

Bug? Edit

Anybody else seeing the message "No tag_id, size, or slotname" on the main screen? I'm getting it at the top and to the right. I had a look to see if it was anything obvious, but when I saw all that wiki-code I ran off screaming. --vom 22:23, November 17, 2009 (UTC)

I'm not seeing it, no. SpartHawg948 23:18, November 17, 2009 (UTC)
I've saved a screenshot here if anyone wants to take a look... I've highlighted them in red since the black-on-dark-blue isn't immediately obvious. The messages don't appear until the page has completely finished loading, so it may be some css or Java weirdness. Which is entirely speculation on my part where "I have no idea why" would probably suffice! --vom 23:41, November 17, 2009 (UTC)
Oops, I forgot I'd left an anti-deep-linking trap in there, the screenshot should hopefully be available now. --vom 08:10, November 18, 2009 (UTC)
I can't see it (the issue reported on the main screen) at all. It's likely an issue with your browser or ad-blocker. --Tullis 15:11, November 18, 2009 (UTC)
Ah, I think you've found the problem. Please excuse me while I go and attempt to knock some sense into myself. --vom 15:27, November 18, 2009 (UTC)

Header Edit

I'm just wondering, for how long is the "Mass effect 2 is released today!" header going to be on the main page? Afaik, ME2 has been released to most countries by now.

Yes, I think it should be removed

The Content Section Edit

Because of certain changes between ME1 and 2, I'm thinking the two columns should be shuffled and a few different links, you know, so we can go to ME1 articles without accidentally hitting on an ME2 one. I'm just thankful I dont mind Spoilers, as it's happened a few times already.--AlexMcpherson 02:20, February 2, 2010 (UTC)

In the context of the table of contents, would anyone happen to know how to produce the three columns used in this section? I've been trying to create a similar table of contents for, but can only find the code for two columns. - Ayjona 17:24, June 19, 2011 (UTC)
It is done by putting the templates {{Col-begin}} and {{Col-3}} at the beginning. You then separate the columns by putting the Col-3 templates to start the new columns. Of course don't forget the {{Col-end}} at the end. You can see how it is set up by clicking the edit button on the main page, just don't save your changes if you are experimenting as it could lead to a misunderstanding. Lancer1289 17:30, June 19, 2011 (UTC)
The strangest thing... I tried to do just that when I first created the wiki, by using the col-3 code from this excellent wiki, just as you now advised me to do, but I could never get it to work. Now, however, upon trying it again as a result of your advice, it's working. Well, whatever magic you worked, it helped ;-) Thanks! - Ayjona 01:03, June 23, 2011 (UTC)
No problem. Happy to help. Lancer1289 01:19, June 23, 2011 (UTC)

Mybe a link on this page to the Epilogue section? just a thought...awayorafk

Homepage edit Edit

When I said what I said above, I didn't mean the 6 images and their links. I meant the big section of links below it. The links from those did seperate into 'me1' and 'me2', i.e. the walkthrough went to a page asking what I wanted a guide to, ME1, the ME1 DLC, or ME2. Any cross-game article (such as the SSV Normandy SR-1 for its feature in ME2) does seperate the ME1 and ME2 stuff with the appropriate spoilers.

It was the links below them that I was talking about, I stumbled on a few because of that.

Oh, and one other thing. I'd like to... kick in the bal-thank whoever removed the news bits about europe you sonofa- *cough* Sorry, I seem to be getting a slight case of the Haricanitis form of tourettes. yeah, it afflicts us europeans whenever we see americans making it all about themselves.

nother edit, forgot to sign. AlexMcpherson 04:09, February 4, 2010 (UTC)

Major Frontpage Edits Edit

So, just figured I'd lay out a little more clearly the reasons I went back to the old front page layout (ie the Categories):

  • 1) Honestly, having the Walkthroughs, Assignments, Achievements, Classes, Characters, and Races categories is much more user-friendly than the sources categories (more on that in a second). Quite often, people coming here know what they want to look for, and having categories that group things together based on similarities (ie Races articles) makes much more sense in that regard than categories based on something arbitrary like the games, which are hardly all-inclusive, and often overlap.
  • 2) The new categories only included four of the works that comprise the Mass Effect franchise thus far. All three books were completely overlooked. It's gotta be all or nothing, which, when taken with the other reasons, made reverting to the tried-and-true system a no-brainer.
  • 3) We ask that editors not make major changes to prominent pages (and I can't think of a more prominent page than the front page) on their own without bringing it up on a talk page (like, for example, this talk page). Even the admins don't do major changes like this on a whim, so we ask that the other editors also do the community the courtesy of not unilaterally taking actions like that. And that, in a nutshell (a rather large nutshell) is my reasoning! SpartHawg948 12:38, February 4, 2010 (UTC)

Malware detected Edit

This site is setting off all kinds of alarm bells on chrome. Says there's vicious malware...Apparently it's affecting all wiki's. Is it just chrome being paranoid? -Venath

Separating Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2 Edit

Should Mass Effect 2 be given it's own Wiki. It is a little difficult searching through all the Mass Effect 1 stuff to find info on the other game.

I think people need to learn to sign their posts first. Me included, since I tend to need to edit as I remember to sign after clicking 'save page.' And Trekkies aren't so hard pressed finding info on memory alpha, and it's... lets just say, Huge. AlexMcpherson 03:41, February 10, 2010 (UTC)

Hey, if you don't like the layout and want to start an ME2 wiki that is in no way affiliated with this one, go right ahead! That's the beauty of the wikia system. You don't need our permission. SpartHawg948 04:24, February 10, 2010 (UTC)

Firefox search engine pluginEdit

There is now a Firefox search engine plugin for that can be installed and used with FF's search bar. The plugin can be found here. 18:01, March 24, 2010 (UTC)

Text wrapping error Edit

I don't know if this page has a general contact but in a lot of articles the picture. usually the first one right at the top right of the first section of the articles page, goes over the top of the text covering it. Could any kind of text wrapping fix that?

Which browser are you using? Which version? What screen resolution? Is the browser running maximized or in a window? --DRY 03:34, March 25, 2010 (UTC)

Kasumi: Stolen Memory Edit

The news feed is wrong, as of 17:00, 06/04/2010.

The Kasumi DLC is not yet released, but the news feed reads as though it is. I just thought it might be more prudent to remove that news entry until the DLC is actually released. Suicidal Skydiver 16:02, April 6, 2010 (UTC)

It's wrong where you are, but it may be correct in other time zones. Kind of like how putting the fact that ME2 released on January 26th wasn't correct for South Africa. It wasn't accurate for them, but it was for other places. If we were being "prudent" (at least by your definition of it) we wouldn't have posted the news that ME2 had released till at least February 11th, when all versions became available in Russia. BioWare said the 6th, so it's accurate for us to put that it releases on the 6th. If it ends up being not released today, or if it turns out it was released for a short time in some time zones but then was pulled for Broken Steel-type issues, that'll be newsworthy too. SpartHawg948 18:00, April 6, 2010 (UTC)
So has it been released elsewhere in the world already? Suicidal Skydiver 19:13, April 6, 2010 (UTC)
As of a couple of hours ago it hadn't been here (California), but again, all it says it that the DLC "is released" today. It doesn't say it has been released, just that it "is released", which is exactly what BioWare has stated will be the case. SpartHawg948 19:50, April 6, 2010 (UTC)
Fair enough. I just felt it was misleading. I checked up on the wikia, which it said 'DLC Released Today', so I started up my Xbox so I could download it. That's why I felt it was unneccesary to say it is released today, when as of right now it isn't. 21:09, April 6, 2010 (UTC)

:::::Babyhenchy1 managed to find this IGN Article: Problems with DLC. Maybe tonight or tomorrow. Lancer1289 21:13, April 6, 2010 (UTC)

Bloody fantastic. I hope they don't take too much longer.Suicidal Skydiver 21:21, April 6, 2010 (UTC)

'Mass Effect Series' Catagory? Edit

I think it is pointless having this category since it is a Mass Effect Wiki, i believe that either that the category should be deleted with the sub links and categories being placed straight onto the menu, or that there could be a 'Games' Category with Mass Effect, Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect Galaxy being placed in it with the ‘Novels and Comics’ category being placed straight onto the menu rather like the Halo wiki.--Charliekrad 10:48, July 9, 2010 (UTC)

Yeah... about that. This way we can keep our menu more compact, without having it get ridiculously large, like the one on the Halo wiki is getting to be. And how is it pointless to have an overarching category for the various elements of the Mass Effect franchise? Regardless, the current layout has been very well received (I believe this is the first criticism it has received), and was worked on and approved by quite a few members of the community, so before making any changes like the ones you're suggesting, there'd need to be some discussion, and some sandboxing to see what the proposed version looked like, and then probably some more discussion, followed by voting and all that fun stuff. SpartHawg948 11:18, July 9, 2010 (UTC)
I do agree that the Halo Wiki's menu is becoming very large with some unnecessary categories, but the wiki is quite a bit larger in comparison to this wiki. Although do not agree with myself fully on this but i think that having a ‘downloadable content’ category could be moved within each game rather than its own category. Because this could be put into the ‘Mass Effect Series’ category. But then again this is a community run wiki in which i cannot make large decisions which the whole community has to, and this is only my opinion. --Charliekrad 19:13, July 9, 2010 (UTC)
The DLC was actually divided up by games, as you suggested. However, about two or three months ago, it was decided to streamline the process by integrating all the DLC onto one page, rather than having separate pages for both ME DLC and ME2 DLC. And when this was done, it became necessary to rework the menu to reflect this change. This is why we now have a DLC category in the menu, as opposed to DLC sections under each game. It added a category to the menu, but allowed us to greatly streamline the articles, creating a 'one-stop' DLC page instead of multiple pages covering only a fraction of the info. SpartHawg948 20:22, July 9, 2010 (UTC)

Mass Effect 1 Missions that Carry into Mass effect 2? Edit

I was hoping to playthrough ME2 as a biotic and continue with my level 30 soldier characters resources and stuff,who was imported from ME1 and was the character I used for the completionist achievement, but to my dismay I could not change my class. So I am going to play through ME1 again as a biotic for the biotic power achievements and companion achievements, but I would want to get back to playing ME2 ASAP, because it is the one I prefer. I could go for another completion of ME1, but to be honest I don't want to, and I'd best like to know the missions of ME1 that have a greater affect in something in ME2, so missions that do so would be greatly appreciated.

  • Personally, I would suggest completing the game first as a soldier, that way you can get the achievements for the kills with the major weapons and unlock them for the next play through making it easier, especially if you play an adept or an engineer. That way you can get assault rifle training. :-) Darth Mondrak 09:47, September 2, 2010 (UTC)

Good question. I've wondered this myself as I am about to start a new character in ME1.--El expl0siv0 02:23, March 1, 2011 (UTC)

Spotlight Edit

Yay! Any idea when the spotlight actually starts? The spotlights page doesn't make it clear when we'll actually be featured.

Also, do we want to make a spotlight image, or just trust that Wikia's marketing department will get it right? -- Dammej (talk) 19:49, September 18, 2010 (UTC)

Forgot about this, ment to answer yesterday, oh well. Anyway after reading through it again, we can make our own, or we can let Wikia do it for us. I can ask when our spotlight begins and how long we have to make an image if you'd like. I really have no preference either way but again I can ask if it is desired. Lancer1289 16:43, September 19, 2010 (UTC)
Well, it'd be nice to know at any rate, I think. (when the spotlight starts, I mean) :P If it matters to anyone: What would be a good spotlight image? Keep in mind that they're 200x75px things that appear at the bottom of wikis, so you can't have a ton of detail in them. I've got a couple of ideas I'd like to try, but I figure others might have even better ones. If no one cares though, we can just put our faith in Wikia marketing. -- Dammej (talk) 06:10, September 20, 2010 (UTC)
I'll drop her a message at Community Central then and ask about both thing, image and start date. Hopefully I'll get an answer later today and I'll post the response wherever it may come from. Lancer1289 12:35, September 20, 2010 (UTC)
Huh. Spotlight image eh? Well, first, it's great to hear that the wiki is being Spotlighted. Personally I think it's the best one out there. Second, here's my idea for the image. We could make it the iconic "planet curve silhouette". You know, like from the opening scene of the games? I think it'd work well, myself. Arbington 22:21, September 20, 2010 (UTC)

Ok new information time. The schedule is being finalized but we should be up in mid to late October. As to the graphic, we have a limited amount of time, give or take about a week to make a graphic if we choose to. The size is very specific, 200 x 75 pixels, so if we want to puruse making our own graphic, then someone just say something and I'll get a project forum page up in a hurry. Wendy did say that the Wikia staff is more than happy to make it, and "they make nearly all the ones you see". While it is breif, most of this is from my talk page at Community Central. I'll post new information as it comes in. Lancer1289 02:37, September 24, 2010 (UTC)

Oh my. Has anyone seen the spotlight image for the wiki yet? Anyone else remember those undead skeletons in any Mass Effect games? I must have missed them. -- Dammej (talk) 00:38, November 5, 2010 (UTC)

I haven't seen anything yet, but accroding to the Staff, all approved spotlights are now up so just be on the lookout and if you do see it, then please do copy the image and paste it so we all can see. Lancer1289 02:16, November 5, 2010 (UTC)
Alight, here's a screen of the two types of spotlights.MEW_Spotlights_are_skeletons.png
So, lesson learned: don't trust Wikia's marketing department to do something like this. It's ridiculously embarrassing that they used undead skeletons to advertise us. Does a picture like this even exist on the wiki somewhere? Or was someone in marketing just being "creative?" Or am I the one with egg on my face because there are undead skeletons holding shotguns in the game? What game do they even come from anyway? -- Dammej (talk) 06:19, November 5, 2010 (UTC)
Looks like the robots from Terminator. Y'know, what Arnold's character looked like under the fake skin and hair and all that jazz? And I believe you are right. I can't recall anything remotely resembling them appearing in any of the games. SpartHawg948 06:46, November 5, 2010 (UTC)
Um what was that supposed to be. I'm going to contact the staff and see if we can get that changed as I don't see how that relates to the ME universe whatsoever. I'll leave messages with the staff at Community Central and Contact them directly. Lancer1289 12:44, November 5, 2010 (UTC)
Ok I just sent an email and contacted several staff members about it. Now fingers crossed that they change that. Also I don't know of you noticed but even the weapons don't match. It depicts modern shotguns, rather than anything we see in the ME universe. Lancer1289 14:11, November 5, 2010 (UTC)
Looks like they fixed it, but they didn't get your message about the First Contact War pic. It's now a cropped down pic of Legion from this screenshot. Did a little looking around. Someone posted about the error sometime after Lancer left messages with JoePlay and others. Apparently the previous erroneous image was from Uncharted, and is also used for their spotlight. Must've just been a glitch. So I apologize for assuming incompetence rather than the more likely (and correct) bug that caused the erroneous image. -- Dammej (talk) 07:32, November 6, 2010 (UTC)
Yea glad to see it was fixed. I have to say that is much better than the old pic wich wasn't even from our game. Well at least it is much better, and mroe accurate. Lancer1289 14:48, November 6, 2010 (UTC)
Hello. Klock101 here from the Uncharted Wiki. We have a spotlight up now and the skeletons are from our games. I sent an email to Wikia staff and started the above mentioned forum thread, and the issue seems to have been resolved. Sorry about the mix up and good luck with your spotlight!--Klock101 16:37, November 6, 2010 (UTC)
And hello to you as well. Well I guess that answers where the image came from as it looked like nothing we'd ever seen. I guess these things happen don't they, but at least it is resolved. As for myself I left messages with three staff members and then an email as well. No harm in covering all the bases. Oh and good luck with your spotlight as well. Lancer1289 16:42, November 6, 2010 (UTC)
Thanks, Lancer! Hopefully I can buy Mass Effect 2 when it comes to the PS3 in January. Goodbye until then. --Klock101 18:16, November 6, 2010 (UTC)

Latest news Edit

Mass Effect 3 is available for preorder, check Supakillaii 21:43, December 13, 2010 (UTC)

YEah that really isn't news worthy. As soon as a game is announced, you can preorder it. Lancer1289 21:49, December 13, 2010 (UTC)

First time i ever edited a wiki page and thought "Latest News" would be an appropriate place to put some information that came to my attention on the up coming Mass Effect 3 from a Spanish website called atomix. here is the linked page [1]. On the bottom should be two new screen-shots of the game[2][3]. I'm not sure if this is real info or not but i thought it might be a good heads up to people hungry for more news on the game. Quick heads up tho, I've read it and it doesn't contain many key plot spoilers but game-play wise and what you would expect from the game, read at your own discretion. here is the translated info...

"A Spanish magazine called Player has published an article on Mass Effect 3 and it reveals many new details of the game. It is clear that the note contains a lot of spoilers, so I come to read at your own risk.

New details in summary are:

- Among the troops manned Cerberus include fuses, assault units and storm troopers. The reason that Cerberus is against us is explained at the beginning of the adventure.

- The Reapers have different sizes, from 500 to 600 feet of smaller ships, up to 2 km to reach the Herald.

- Some of Shepard's new skills include coverage starts looking for the Max Payne, rolling, jumping small holes in the ground, as the SWAT turn and strike the enemy with greater variety of melee attacks. It specifically mentions a new class: Heavy Melee, which uses these combat capabilities.

- Among the customizable weapons are the guns and windows. There are five variants in each section.

- Could there be space battles, but not yet confirmed.

- There will be bigger stages. We will see people walking, fighting ships and architecture in greater detail. Look for the photo realism of sites using new lighting techniques on the stage. It has also improved the atmosphere and the number of dynamic elements of the stage, increasing interactivity with the player.

- Some of the locations visited include New York, London, a moon of Koriana world, the salariano and Mars, among others. The development of each environment takes about 6 months, testing the levels from the outset.

- There will be dynamic damage on enemies. The strands of Cerberus, for example, requires that we shoot a weak point, the glass cockpit in order to overcome them. In other enemies we cut off the arms, head or sever break various pieces of his armor.

- The fighting will be more dynamic, as it will force us to move more frequently.

- In terms of exploration, no vehicles will control seen in previous installments. The main gameplay is designed without them and will continue. This does not mean they do not go to any, but can not reveal more for now." --Ffinfinity1 08:20, April 21, 2011 (UTC)

Yeah that also isn't really news worth and this really isn't the place for something like that as it would be more relevant on the Talk:Mass Effect 3 page. Lancer1289 12:49, April 21, 2011 (UTC)

Your probably right and I'm new to this wikia stuff so i had no idea where to post so i thought the Talk:Mass Effect page would be good, but thanks for telling me about the Talk:Mass Effect 3 page I'll go their next time. As for the info, i think the screen shots alone would be news worthy but they still look alot like ME2, well at least to me, and not 100% sure of their validity.

Well everyone is new at someting at sometime. Lancer1289 15:36, April 22, 2011 (UTC)

why cant i load my mass effect 2 save games Edit

when i play mass effect 2 for pc i save my game but when i go to the loading screen its empty can someone please give me some instructions on how to fix this problem

Did you know..? Edit

Many wiki pages have a "Did you know...?" section on the front page consisting of a few random bits of trivia. Not exactly a pressing concern, but would be a neat way to get people to investigate links.

I really can't see how we would integrate that, nor do I see one reason to have one. We already have a great main page and I don't see a reason to add another "Did you know...?" section. We aren't any other wiki and we don't have to do what they do. Also I don't think any other wiki has CDN, which, IMHO, is much more unique than a "Did you know...?" section. Also I can see a section like that being extremely hard to enforce standards about what should go there. We would probably have to allow only certain members or admins only to modify it. Not to mention that we have trivia sections in every article, and a lot of information about them. Just because others are doing it, doesn’t mean that it is good, or right for this wiki. All in all, I see a number of problems with this and I am going to have to say no. Lancer1289 06:05, December 28, 2010 (UTC)
Agreed. It's a gimmick that may work well for some wikis, but I think we're fine without it. -- Commdor (Talk) 06:18, December 28, 2010 (UTC)

New Squad member in Mass Effect 3 Edit

i wonder how will there be room for new squad mates in mass effect 3 since the squad is pretty huge now or does that mean we wont be seeing any new guys or there will be an event at the begining of mass effect 3 that will kill of some characters

This really isn't the place for such discussions. You can post that question in the forums or in your personal blog - the talk pages should be used to discuss issues related to the wiki and its articles (in this case the main page). --silverstrike 15:36, January 1, 2011 (UTC)
Indeed. The forums is the appropiate place for this, not here. Lancer1289 18:04, January 1, 2011 (UTC)

Casual Outfits ME2 Edit

As silly as this may seem, I think there should be a category for the outfits Shepard wears on the Normandy in ME2. While replaying ME1, I noticed that one of the biotic cultists on Presrop during UNC: Major Kyle had the same oufit as one of Shepard's. The "Han Solo" one (for lack of a better term) with the orange vest. Just thought it was an interesting little factoid but couldn't find it anywhere here. Hefe 15:40, January 15, 2011 (UTC)

We did have a page for the casual outfits but it was deleted after a community vote. They are now listed in the Armor Customization page at the bottom because of the lack of gameplay impact. We felt that it was the best place to put the information, and you are more than free to read over the relevant conversations. As for a category for them, I will say no because there wasn't enough to justify an article, and even less to justify a category. Lancer1289 17:45, January 15, 2011 (UTC)
Understood. I wasn't able to find them using the search. Thanks.Hefe 05:00, January 16, 2011 (UTC)
No problem. Lancer1289 05:22, January 16, 2011 (UTC)

Achievements and Trophies Edit

Should the Achievements section be renamed Achievements and Trophies or simply left as Achievements?-- 21:47, January 18, 2011 (UTC)

You mean the button? That will probably stay as "Achievements" since a longer title distorts the whole button layout; however, the actual achievements article may possibly be renamed. We're still discussing how to reorganize that article. -- Commdor (Talk) 21:50, January 18, 2011 (UTC)

Yes the distortion did come to mind. Thanks for telling me. Just wanted to know-- 21:53, January 18, 2011 (UTC)

Arrival DLC Edit this is good right?

Yes we are already aware of the information. Lancer1289 23:08, February 22, 2011 (UTC)

New character. Which class? Edit

I'm sure this sort of thread litters this wiki so I'm sorry but I could use some assistance. I'm going to play Mass Effect 1 and 2 with a new character. My only character that goes throughout the series is a sentinel. My question is what class should I be? This is a 3 game investment so I'm not taking it too lightly, otherwise I probably wouldn't be making this post. I love the sentinel (at least in ME2) because with the combination of warp and overload I can take on about any enemy. This is part of the reason that I'm not too thrilled about the idea of going solely biotic with the adept, tech with the engineer or anywhere in between with the vanguard or infiltrator because they simply aren't as versatile (at least in ME2). So this is obviously making me lean towards the straight up soldier. But is my logic flawed? I would love to hear some arguments about why I should reconsider as, like I said, this is a bit of a commitment. --El expl0siv0 06:03, February 28, 2011 (UTC)

Please, no arguments of discussions or anything relating to this subject here. This is the talk page for the Wiki's main page. This sort of topic is completely inappropriate for this venue. If you wish to have this discussion, and receive input and opinions from others, do it in the forums or a blog, not here. That's not what this talk page is for. SpartHawg948 06:06, February 28, 2011 (UTC)

Minor Edit Edit

I don't know how to edit the featured article section, but I see a repeated word (or perhaps a misspelling) in "...emphasizing finesse and and 'intelligent' approach..." in the preview about the Eclipse article. -Tajik24 02:26, March 6, 2011 (UTC)

Leaving me a message detailing the error on my talk page would be the fastest and easiest way to go about fixing it, seeing as I'm the author of all the previews these days. And it was indeed a misspelling. The second 'and' was supposed to be 'an'. Thanks for bringing it to my attention, as I totally missed it! :) SpartHawg948 02:29, March 6, 2011 (UTC)

Mass Relay and Reaper Edit

I noticed that the Mass Relays and Sovereign have a similarity.If you look at a relay, you will see the mass effect field(blue) then the 2 arms of the relay. Now look at Sovereign, specifically Sovereign's "head". You will see the 2 arms of the relay and the head look similar.I guess it is nothing since the Reapers did make the relays.

-- 00:48, April 9, 2011 (UTC)SomeGuy

And this is here why exactly? This talk page is for comments and things about the Wiki's main page, not for somethign like this which should be in a forum or blog post to begin with. Lancer1289 00:57, April 9, 2011 (UTC)

Missing short novel? Edit

I just found out that I myself own a short Mass Effect novel which is not on the wikia. I searched a bit, and found out, that this novel (only around 15 pages) is exclusive for the Hungarian version of the game (the Hungarian publsiher thought that such a game deserves it) AND it's written by a hungarian writer. Because of this, it's Hungarian (and I'm quite sure it's not avalible on any other languages) and I don't think that it's canon source. The story is really nothing extra, I guess that no new information is in it.

So...Should I create a page for it? Or what? 20:25, April 24, 2011 (UTC) SnowMen

The information in it would need to be verified before anything is done about it. If it is something like fan fiction, then it doesn’t have a place here, and the fact that it is only available in one country doesn't help it. Links would be needed in this case before anything is done. Lancer1289 20:28, April 24, 2011 (UTC)

I'M pretty sure I won't be able to find anything non Hungarian sorce - If someone who is a wikia contributor and hungarian could vertify what I can link, that would be cool -. I'll look for some info+ upload here 2 pics.


First is the front, second is the rear pic András Sándor 20:36, April 24, 2011 (UTC)SnowMen

(edit conflict)Even if they are just Hungarian links, that would still be used. It's just something needs to be verified and then would need to be evaluated before anything can be done. Lancer1289 20:37, April 24, 2011 (UTC)
Just to note, pictures aren't good enough in this case, we need links to verification, something that can be looked at and if possible translated. After all, no offense meant in this case, but anyone can create something like that. Lancer1289 20:39, April 24, 2011 (UTC)

None taken. I can give you a link to the writers page Her wiki page also mentions it wiki And there is something about it a hungarian gamer site here But that's all I found right now. I'll keep looking.

András Sándor 20:46, April 24, 2011 (UTC)SnowMen

From what I'm reading through Google translation, granted probably not the best solution, but from what I can tell it does a somewhat accurate job, it looks like something that was added and falls into what would be classified as fan fiction. It seems to be an addition to the game rather than something that was authorized by BioWare, which means that it doesn't have a place here, and that also means that it isn't canon. If you can find something else, then feel free to being it forward. Still it was interesting and again feel free to bring something forward. Lancer1289 21:04, April 24, 2011 (UTC)
Perhaps this should be trivia then? Arbington 01:49, April 25, 2011 (UTC)
That is debatable because of the content and based on what I read. Lancer1289 01:55, April 25, 2011 (UTC)

I actually had the chance to read some of it (I'm hungarian), it's purely fan fiction, interesting nevertheless. Xarex 13:20, April 25, 2011 (UTC)

Greetings from the Dragon Ball wiki... Edit

Someone on this site is vandalizing the DBWiki by putting up all kinds of spam on the pages advertising this wiki...thought you ought to know... Tokeupdude 14:06, April 29, 2011 (UTC)

It isn't someone from this site and reporting it here won't do very much to stop him. Get in contact with the local admins, the staff, or report the vandalism with the VSTF as they can permanently end the problem while we can't do much except undo the damage and hope he stops. Lancer1289 14:09, April 29, 2011 (UTC)
Yeah...I don't know what I was trying to accomplish by telling you guys... But hey, you got a new Mass Effect wiki user out of it haha (this guy) Tokeupdude 14:21, April 29, 2011 (UTC)

if i find out who it was i will sue them for vandalizing both our wikis but if it`s one of you your dead

You are breaking wiki policy by issuing underlying threats, and it was an impostor who instigated the vandalism, not the editor who he masquerades as. Entia non sunt multiplicanda praeter necessitatem 15:16, April 29, 2011 (UTC)
Indeed. There was absolutely no reason for the comment and I'm seriouly considering a ban because of it. Lancer1289 16:35, April 29, 2011 (UTC)

Mass Effect Answers Edit

There was long ago a link to Mass Effect answers on the main page here. I was just wondering what happened to it. Dogmatix314 16:43, May 19, 2011 (UTC)

I've never seen on as long as I've been here and that about a year and a half now. Somehting like this however is better taken up with one of the admins directly. Lancer1289 17:23, May 19, 2011 (UTC)
I don't exactly remember when the "questionbox" was removed, but sure.. I haven't seen it here in a long time. During the that time it was conviniently placed so that some people misunderstood it for a search bar though. Dogmatix314 17:31, May 19, 2011 (UTC)

Language? Edit

Question is there any cannonical reason why they all speak the same language? I mean do they all speak Asari or Salarian or does they're Omni-tools have a Translator? 04:16, June 21, 2011 (UTC)

We do know they have translators somewhere, but it could be anything. See Codex/UPDATE: Bring Down the Sky. Lancer1289 04:23, June 21, 2011 (UTC)
The canonical reason is that, for the most part, they don't all speak the same language. The link Lancer provided explains the translators used in-game. There are some languages that are more common (batarian is described as the lingua franca of the Terminus Systems), but by and large, it's translators. SpartHawg948 06:16, June 21, 2011 (UTC)

Auto-finishing the games? Edit

So, I've played through the first and second games MULTIPLE times for console, but recently had to get rid of my console and copies of the games, and I want to be able to continue those playthrough in the third game for PC, and I have also obtained copies of the first and second games for PC.

Is it possible to automatically 100% complete the games through console commands or something with certain endings so I don't have to play through the games again? Or do I really need to play through both of the games three times, again? 08:13, January 15, 2012 (UTC)

Console commands can only go so far and even then only apply to ME. You cannot complete either game by just doing that. You actually need to play them. Lancer1289 08:27, January 15, 2012 (UTC)
Could you import someone else's save file? -- RandomTime 12:31, January 15, 2012 (UTC)

Demo Edit

The mass effect demo has been announced for the 14th of Feb, I didn't want to screw anything up so I didn't put it in the news section of the home page. Heres a link - [4] K1LLERAnish 17:26, January 18, 2012 (UTC)

We are well aware of this fact from a number of other sources. Lancer1289 17:29, January 18, 2012 (UTC)

Mass Effect: Infiltrator Edit

This [5] is a new game for iOS that will be a tie-in to Mass Effect 3. does it warrant a new article? --Burkenation 21:22, February 7, 2012 (UTC)

It was created about a half hour ago. But We will take the new source. Lancer1289 21:23, February 7, 2012 (UTC)

Alliance News Network Edit

Is there going to be a new section made for the ANN reports coming out on fridays? [6] --Jwgray1985 22:34, February 9, 2012 (UTC)

Not right now since we don't know if we're going to keep getting new reports every Friday after ME3 is released. If the reports continue, then we'll see about displaying them on the main page in some way. -- Commdor (Talk) 22:37, February 9, 2012 (UTC)

Affiliated Wikis Edit

I was wondering why/how these wikis became "affiliated." Like the "Dragon Age" one kinda makes since, but like what does "Assassin's Creed" have to do with "Mass Effect?" Not that I'm turning away allies. Just curious. --This text has been approved by Murfitizer 05:06, February 17, 2012 (UTC)

K thank you --This text has been approved by Murfitizer 05:12, February 17, 2012 (UTC)
Reason I asked was because I thought the Fallout wiki would be an appropriate and productive associate, and incorporating their achievement system to this wiki would be, in my opinion, simply awesome. Thoughts? --This text has been approved by Murfitizer 05:41, February 17, 2012 (UTC)
I am not an admin but if I may offer my advice? I'd suggest directing your idea to either Lancer or Spart's talk pages. As for me, I'd readily support an affiliation with Nukapedia. --Burkenation 05:48, February 17, 2012 (UTC)

I believe a factions page should be added to the front page, just like the races, assignments, et cetera. -- 15:15, March 6, 2012 (UTC)

What just happened?!?!?!?! Edit


Okay, I just finished Mass Effect 3, and I am sooo confused. I shot the tube things on the reaper, and the reapers died. Is my Shepard dead? After the credits and final scene with the child and stargazer, it brought me back to the Normandy, so is that before the final assault or after...I am just so confused!!!

--Pinklipstick925 22:29, March 11, 2012 (UTC)Pink

No he's right. That ending was so wrong it was offencive.

  • SPOILERS FOR ENDING OF ME3* Idiggory 07:28, March 22, 2012 (UTC)
Doubly so for the fact that this is a huge spoiler with no attempt to alert the readers. So thanks for that. Idiggory 07:28, March 22, 2012 (UTC)
First, do not insert comments in the middle of other user's comments. It is rude to say the least. Second, talk pages are read at your own risk. Third, see my previous comment about where things like this belong. Apparently I'm not using English because no one seems to get it. Lancer1289 12:06, March 22, 2012 (UTC)
For actual pages, I agree. The general talk page is primarily for organizational issues for all subsequent pages, which concern a huge number of various sources. Spoilers are obviously going to be found here, but it's rude not to mark them. Idiggory 19:05, March 22, 2012 (UTC)

Add Multiplayer Link Edit

Since it's a different game experience, I believe that it might be a good idea to put a link to the 'multiplayer page' on the front page of the wiki. I think that a lot of people refer to this page and go there often. Therefore, a new topic might fall under the gameplay category and link to the multiplayer page. --Buthane 14:27, March 21, 2012 (UTC)

I agree with this. The actual page itself already seems to be getting almost absurdly long, it might be a good idea to break it into multiple pages. Idiggory 22:52, March 22, 2012 (UTC)

Inusannon Edit

I remember it being mentioned the Inusannon were going to play a larger role in Mass Effect 3. However, doing a search here only shows a small write up on them. If I recall, they were the most advanced species in the cycle prior to the Protheans. It was also the Inusannon that I heard whose biological appearance matches Shepard's visions and the statues, with the tentacled "beards" and molded legs. I'd just like some confirmation on whether I am right or wrong and any additional information on what may appear to be Mass Effect's version of the Space Jockeys.

All of the information that is present is on the Background Races.
And just to throw this out there, this is the talk page for the main page, not the wiki. Lancer1289 14:48, March 23, 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, I checked that out and very little info was there. I thought there was more mentioned about the Inusannon. And my apologies for posting here. Will keep in mind to post on "forum" section here on out. Thanks. TheUnseelieCourt 01:32, March 24, 2012 (UTC)

Question about The "Ally Achievements" Edit

On my first play through in the original Mass Effect I used (for the most part) Kaidan Alenko and Garrus Vakarian. I got the achievement for Kaidan but not for GArrus. If you use Garrus for some of my second play through do I need to 50 MORE assignments or do they carry over to the next play through?

Protected? Edit

Is there a reason this page is locked to any editing? Was this locked as part of the Forum:Wiki_Lockdown discussion? At any rate, I didn't know if it was necessary anymore. -- Dammej (talk) 00:29, May 8, 2012 (UTC)

A user vandalized the page at some point after launch, before the lockdown. I concluded that if even registered, auto-confirmed users will vandalize the page, stronger protection is needed, especially since the main page is every wiki's most visible article. Aside from occasional minor changes (news updates or adding a relevant link to the Contents section), any other changes to the main page must be discussed before implementing anyway. Like the Wikia.css page and others, the main page should be restricted so users can't rearrange it on a whim. -- Commdor (Talk) 00:43, May 8, 2012 (UTC)
I'm forced to defer to your judgment of course, but I do remember when people other than admins were able to add/remove news from the main page. If that's no longer wanted then I supposed it doesn't matter. Thanks for the reply. -- Dammej (talk) 11:12, May 8, 2012 (UTC)

only a few characters have birthdays. most of them came from a mass effect dev who once provided timeline info from design documents. others, i think, came from bioware's own promotional materials.

Why does Mass Effect Andromeda have a page listed as "Super Walkthrough" that has almost no walkthrough listed? It has a getting started intro and three tips and tricks. - Arthurh3535 (talk) 02:15, July 8, 2017 (UTC)

It's just a marketing gimmick that Wikia thought would be cute. It may have been designed to attract new visitors, not to serve as an actual "walkthrough." The Cat Master (talk) 02:20, July 8, 2017 (UTC)
What Cat Master said. It was meant to be a quick access page and has to be there for a certain period, although I'm unsure how long it needs to be here. I'm thinking it could be repurpose as a Portal in the future, with more relevant links added to it.  teugeneTalkContr 06:59, July 8, 2017 (UTC)
I actually dug up a walkthrough here on the wikia, but it's not linked. I'm not sure how to contact someone to get it added, as the edit button is removed. Kind of a pain to not even be allowed to edit something to make it better. Arthurh3535 (talk) 00:17, July 9, 2017 (UTC)
What is the link for the walkthrough? The edit button was removed by Wikia staff, if I'm not mistaken.  teugeneTalkContr 05:14, July 9, 2017 (UTC) --Arthurh3535 (talk) 00:11, July 16, 2017 (UTC)
