    I wish promoting a level 20 character would give you a spectre pack or some kind of unlockable.

    Does anyone know if, once maxed out, you still receive XP boosts for that class from the packs?

    Put another way, can you receive duplicates of equipment you already have from the purchased packs?

    Not reading anything else in this thread, I just wanted to stop in to say that I've been really impressed by the Kinect voice commands. I honestly expected not to care about them even slightly, but after some prompting from my girlfriend to try them out, they're really cool. Getting people to launch off a power in the middle of a fight just by telling them? Feels pretty boss. I have had a couple of instances where it's picked the wrong conversation option, once because there was already a conversation going on in the room and it detected that, and once because Vega was talking while the prompt came up, and it picked the option from that. But on the whole, really quite satisfying and impressive.

    I was really hoping that this could somehow be integrated with the PC version, for those of us with mics. It seemed like such a freaking great feature, I'm glad you're having a good time with it and not struggling to get it working (aside from the rare dialogue option thing).

    With Kinect now being an official thing for PC, I suppose it's possible they might be able to patch it to work that way sometime, would be great if they could bring it to more people. I imagine it'd be a harder code rewrite to get it to work through different voice-recognition software and inputs, since I understand the Kinect-based stuff is all handled differently. As in, it's not that BioWare wrote their own voice-recognition software, but used the capabilities that come with Kinect's software. For them to use just any ordinary PC headset, I imagine they'd need to actually write all new code.

    You can still get the classes, because it will give you more customization for the armor that the character is wearing. I think when the equipment duplicates you get a higher level of it. I'm not sure on the equipment part though.

    Asari adept is just as useful against non-Cerberus races. I used to think otherwise but then I realized warp/throw does crazy amounts of damage to anything. Stasis is largely useless against reapers but I just throw spam the smaller stuff and destroy the bigger things with warp/throw.

    If you run with less than 200% cooldown it probably doesn't work, but if you're doing that you're doing it wrong.

    Because I can buy three of those after every round. So while a piece of rare equipment might be nice, I'll still get them eventually. If, on the other hand, you can accidentally draw duplicate equipment (I mean completely duplicate and redundant) then fuck that noise.

    So that one weapon was at LVL 3. Maybe once it's maxed the system knows.

    Just be sure to set it to easy.

    I played through insanity once and despite all my mods and armors and everything it can still take several minutes to kill a bad guy. Just sat there pouring rounds into him. He couldn't even move. It's just tedious.

    I don't think the recruit pack has a chance or much of a chance of unlocking rares.

    Once you get a gun leveled up fully you wont get it again, but you'll get the same characters forever.

    Usually in a spectre pack I get like 3 medigel and 3 rockets and such, plus higher level armor/weapon equipment. Seems pretty worth it to just save up for the Spectre after a couple initial recruit pack unlocks.

    Having not played all the way through (I'm maybe 8-10 hours in), what dlc would everyone like to see? With me2 it came with a dlc character but then released with Kasumi, and I loved Kasumi just as any other cast member.

    Also I wonder if they will add the first dlc characters race to the multiplayer. I suppose it wouldn't work for canon.

    I think the first story based dlc is going to be about Omega, if rumors are to be believed.

    Once you level up a Quarian Infiltrator you can get a spectre pack every round and still have around 15k left. I mean you might get bored of playing the same class every game versus the same enemies every game, but it's good for unlocks.

    I believe those rumors.

    I'm not sure how they're going to handle DLC for this game. I guess they'll just add new War Assets? Or they'll most likely find a way to tie DLC missions to the war, and explain why it would be beneficial to do them.

    Overlord and LotSB were fuckawesome, but DLC missions like those wouldn't really fit in the game.

    Theoretically, maybe, but I suspect that you'll just end up getting piles and piles of consumables, since the basic pack only has a chance of uncommon, to say nothing of rare or n7.

    There's no limit to consumables or characters, even if all characters/classes are level 20, so the chances of getting a Gold card don't go up very much. When doing Spectre packs, you'll eventually run out of "common" Gold unlocks, and then it'll be like 30 character boosts for every Gold ultra-rare (N7 weapons).

  • NEO|PhyteNEO|Phyte Registered User regular
    I figured character unlocks would stop after hitting max appearance customization options (lights), not just max level. Or does it keep happening even if you've got the lights unlocked.
