    Regarding renegade interrupts in general:

    Yep

    Let's be clear.

    Renegade interrupts are about being a badass.

    Sometimes this means being an asshole (like, to Mouse). Frequently, it means taking the shot instead of waiting (like that robot on Garrus's recruitment).

    It's all about going:

    <Shepard> Badassfully, you talk too much.

    I am always amused when somebody complains about missing an interrupt because they want to play paragon or some crap

    Kotaku did this recently, "Bioware is punishing me for my choices!"

    no, the game is giving you the chance to do something cool, that you apparently want to do, and you're pointlessly restricting yourself

    haven't seen it in this thread really but I wanted to say that!

    Aw man. Just joined a public MP match and was having a lot of fun, everybody actually working as a team instead of instantly running separate ways. But was lagging like crazy and everyone kept warping around, and ended up dying on wave 10, aaaargh.

    I would be in, but still level 1 . Have demo experience though :P

    I have a level 7 vanguard but everything else is still level 1. Let me know if you guys fancy it. I don't really know how to set it up tho.

    I think people still have the ME1/ME2 paragon/renegade mentality. Those two games forced you to go full paragon or renegade. This game didn't, and people are simply unaware of that.

    That was the biggest problem with the dialogue system in the last two games and they managed to fix it

    I thought that it was some sort of paragon vs renegade system in this game too

    Mostly because a) it was in the previous games

    and b) they don't actually explain how it now works in this one!

    put on this music (spoilers: ME3 ending tune), and imagine, if you will, an ordinary vanguard in firebase ghost

    this vanguard is near the end of her life
    though she does not yet know it, she approaches the Ultimate Charge, the vanguard myth, the charge to which all other charges aspire

    this charge goes to where there is only health
    where the shield never breaks
    where the cooldown never triggers.

    nobody knows where those who accomplish the ultimate charge go. some say they are destroyed. some say they go on to birth new life with the purity of their impact. and others yet say that every person who goes on to the ultimate charge joins with the charge, and forevermore charges with all other vanguards.

    this vanguard leaves the surly bonds of gravity. she charges harder, and charges faster. briefer are her cooldowns, stronger are her impacts. first she charges between assault troopers, unflinching. then she shoots across the map, charging an atlas without fear. then she charges to another city, and strikes a thug about to shoot a man in the act of robbery.

    then, she charges into space. she charges satellites processing e-crimes, ships full of batarian slavers, vile Reapers. each charge is faster and stronger than the last, streaking across the galaxy, until she at last turns and charges away- a long streak of blue, burning a light away into the darkness of space. the Ultimate Charge. peace for all vanguards.

    this is what just happened to Melding.

    - spec both energy drain and incinerate for raw damage whenever possible
    - I don't think the synthetic-specific perks in energy drain are worth it, but maybe you really want a leg up on geth
    - never spec decoy for anything that increases its durability, I don't think I've ever seen the decoy actually get destroyed
    that's all I've got

    The synthetic specific specs on Salarians are supposed to make up for the fact that they're the worst calls against geths

    it's not really worth compromising your effectiveness overall

    Actually it's not synthetic specific spec at all. They description was confusing, but it actually allows you to get back 100% damage as shield WHENEVER you drain ANYTHING (excluding organic health/armor).

    Yes, no durability on the Decoy, but take the mod that damages enemies when they hit it in melee and the one at rank 6 that detonates it.

    You make your own bullet sponge that distracts the hell out of enemies, draws all the close-range ones to band their heads against it and injure themselves, while everyone else sits back and shoots or flanks them.
