These are the final DLC, eh? In that case, I'm expecting a Mass Effect 4 (or whatever it will be called) announcement this year.

Edit: Oh, I just read that Robin Sachs was able to record lines for the Citadel DLC before his death, so Zaeed might be part of the returning characters in this DLC.

Still haven't played Leviathan. Omega was awesome though (at least the Flare was). Will probably play the former when Citadel comes out.

This'll be the only DLC that I'll buy this year.

In other news, this weekend's Operation"

Quote:
Operation: TRIBUTE (Feb 22nd-24th)

Event Description: A surprise Reaper assault inflicted deeply-felt casualties on our N7 teams and interrupted supply lines to several worlds. Many units will have to rely on standard-issue sidearms and munitions. We must honor and avenge our comrades who fell – and let the Reapers know this was a mistake, not a victory.

Individual Goal: Two objectives are required:

1) Earn 50,000 points using the M-8 Avenger.

2) Earn 50,000 points using Inferno Grenades.

Reward: Commendation Pack and a special tribute banner
Zaeed Massani tribute weekend, here I come. For Zaeed and Jessie.

News from the Bioware Livestream. The new Human Talon Mercenary is an engineer who has a passive ability that REGENERATES GRENADES. Mind, it's based on weight, so light weapons are still a must. Also, his Heavy Melee is the Omnibow, which is a ranged attack, and not recommended for CQC.

The Geth Juggernaut looks to be the go-to character for Solo Bronze and Silver.

"Though this platform proceeds via manual locomotion through the valley of termination, this platform shall not experience trepidation towards diabolism, for this platform is the matron fornicator of greatest size in the valley."

mind you you'll need those adrenaline mods to go anywhere fast for escort/retrieval waves.

Yeah, but I've got something like ten of those.

Actually, after Earth came out, I've actually stopped using armor and weapon mods. Got a shitload of ammo and Gear, which gets the most use. Usually I only play a few hours on the weekend for the weekend challenge, so while I have 0 Medigel and Survival Packs, I also have 250 thermal clips and 40 missiles.

I think I'm going to spend the next few nights farming Dagger Geth Silver; I find that in a PuG, using the N7 Paladin gives me the best margin of survival if the other players are idiots. Also, EXPLOSIONS EVERYWHERE.

I do regret not learning how to do tech explosions until after the farming area on White was patched out. -_-

Eh, tech explosions are easy after the patch. Freeze, Shock or Fire effect, apply Force or different element from priming effect to make it go boom.

As for consumables, I always end up cleanup crew, thus I am eternally out of rockets. I have like 200+ for the other items though.

Yeah, I realise they're real easy with the N7 Paladin. The problem is that I only discovered the joys of tech bursts after White got patched, lol.

For me, Dagger is the best place to farm Geth, if everyone stays in the circular balcony and keeps their head on a swivel, as you've got great lines of fire to the two most common spawn locations, and can quickly reorient if they're coming at other angles.

...also, surprisingly, I have an Ultra Rare. The Volus Protector. Aka BIOTIC GOD.

I tried to grind Gold in preparation for Reckoning, I really did.

But every single time I was playing, the parents kept chasing me to do things for them.

FIVE GAMES I had to drop out of. Two were Wave 10. T___T Argh.

Well, I guess I'll try the Biotic God later tonight. Here's to hoping I get a Geth Juggernaut, because Lowe Gear has one, and holy fucking hells the Geth Juggernaut is awesome. It can be summed up this way:

"Though this platform proceeds via manual locomotion through the valley of termination, this platform shall not experience trepidation towards diabolism, for this platform is the matron fornicator of greatest size in the valley."

Seriously it can stand out in the open on Bronze and Silver and fight off everyone and everything alone. It can kill a group of Brutes and Banshees on Silver WITHOUT missiles. (Immunity to sync kills really helps here.) On Gold, it's the perfect aggro tank to get enemies to focus on it while the teammates kill the enemies.

It'll probabbly get nerfed within the next couple of weeks, lol

I wish they would implement a store where we can buy the items we want rather than have a RNG decide what we get...

Yeah, but if you didn't have random packs, it wouldn't be possible to string people along to keep playing. I mean, I'm coming up to one year of ME3, and I still play quite a fair bit; about 4 or so hours a week, usually for the weekend challenges.

Doubt it the Juggernaught if not properly supported will easily get mobbed.

I don't know why but there were a few cases where everyone was mobbing me, several prateorians and scions and half a dozen troops and the whole time I kept asking myself where the hell was my team? I lasted at least 2-3 minutes and killed half of them before dying and it turned out my team was on the other side of the map. This is on Gold.

You know if a Juggernaught is being mobbed it's a good idea to focus fire on the guys attacking him....

In any case the fact that the Juggernaught is slow and cannot use cover makes him extremely vulnerable.

The talon on the other hand...the OMNI bow IMO isn't that great but the Cain trip mine oh boy. I wiped out so many people with that thing.

Been trying out the Talon. Omnibow sucks ass, but the Cain Trip mine is pretty sweet. I'm going to respec to dump my stats into cain trip mine and focus on its damage, and buff the other powers just to get more mines, and then add the grenade capacity mod.

Krogan Warlord is pretty boss with that hammer. I need to respec to max out Electrical Hammer, Rage and passsive, then maybe buff tech armor some more. Need to be a bit more mobile with this class, as he can't take cover for shit. Using him with a Reegar Carbine is actually pretty darned fun. Glacier Bronze Solo, here I come.

But I still want the Geth Juggernaut. While Gold is an issue, Bronze and Silver can be soloed.

Very much this. Juggernauts are the "Aggro Tank" that keeps the pesky bosses like Banshees and Brutes occupied while the rest of your team mow them down.

I once played my Juggernaut in a Reaper Gold lobby with some awesome guys - a Krogan Warlord, a Talon Merc, and a Paladin Sentinel - and they understood how the Juggernaut works. They'd let me tank the big bosses and lured them to me, and while I stood there like a boss, my team cut them down. It was the fastest and easiest Gold games I ever played, and you could hear the other guys laughing on how OP the Juggernaut was

Too bad the lobbies I got into afterwards didn't have a team so understanding, and would leave me behind while they went around trying to do Gold the old-fashioned way, hence getting us wiped.

Yes the omnibow sucks but it has a knockback effect so you could use it to slow someone down and then gun him down.

Once I get a reset I'll respec out of OMNI bow and into health since the Cain mines are the only good thing about it. Good lord an Atlas's health was reduced by 3/4 simply by me placing 3 mines at his feet. Though this was after I brought his shields down.

Well it'll take time since it's very new but I've been noticing that in PUGS more players will run to me as a Juggernaught when the sync killers come out since they all know I can't be sync.

I also respec my juggernaught for Turret healing and 4x damage reduction with the siege pulse. It's too slow to use as an offensive power and I spec into heavy tank with an assault ramp to cancel out the damage penalty. With a Reegar for CQC and a Prothean particle rifle I'm able to deck out a lot of damage and I've been having a lot more success.

For the Warlord I'm going to spec out of armor damage and into more charges for the hammer. Maybe more useful that way.

The others I'm still figuring out.

That's basically the Juggernaut's job though. If they're not running to you to take care of the bosses then they're doing it wrong.

I personally didn't put any points on the Geth Turret. It's nice on the Geth Engineer, but I realize that the Geth Juggernaut is best when it has the maximum amount of shields and health. I specced mine 6/6/0/6/6 with Hex Shield dealing damage and size increase, and Siege Pulse specced for damage reduction and 4 shots same as you. I can thus focus on staying mobile and relying on my ELECTRIC FORCE CHOKE to replenish my shields.

Electric Force Choke is win. Everytime I see a Juggernaut, I know in my heart that victory is at hand, as all I need to do is take out the mobs while the Juggernaut's maintaining aggro.

Though I wonder - if a Juggernaut is force choking an enemy and I kill it, does it recharge its shields or only after the enemy dies?

Also, from my observations last night, it looks like the Siege Pulse can detonate fire explosions.
