Starting Out		0001
------------

If you played Mass Effect 2 you have the option of importing your old
characters. As with ME1 to ME2, there could be issues, and you will most likely
need to further customize the face of your old Shepard if you want him/her to
look the same or different. You'll find that you have more tools than in
previous games, so your final version of Shepard will probably be your best.

And if you didn't play ME2 you will just make a new character who lacks the
specific story decisions a fully-imported Shepard would have made. You will
choose an origin and military service past that we have never seen, but it has
come up in a few conversations - it's not a big deal which you choose. Then you
can choose to kill Kaidan or Ashley or more, but it's best to just choose one
to die if you want to meet everyone else (I think).

Next will be your class, which are the same six from ME2, and you can change
the one you may have had in ME2:

Class: Soldier
Summary: Best with firearms, weakest with biotic powers
Powers: 
	Adrenaline Rush - slow motion for a short time
	Concussive Shot
	Frag Grenade
	Incendiary Ammo
	Disruptor Ammo
	Cryo Ammo


Class: Infiltrator
Summary: Stealth snipers
Powers: 
	Cloak - difficult to spot
	Incinerate
	Sabotage
	Sticky Grenade
	Disruptor Ammo
	Cryo Ammo


Class: Vanguard
Summary: Close-range weapon specialists
Powers: 
	Biotic Charge - instantly ram into an enemy knocking them down
	Pull
	Shockwave
	Nova
	Incendiary Ammo
	Cryo Ammo


Class: Sentinel
Summary: Close-range biotic specialists
Powers: 
	Warp - powerful boitic blast
	Overload
	Cryo Blast
	Throw
	Lift Grenade
	Tech Armor


Class: Adept
Summary: Best with biotics, weakest with firearms
Powers: 
	Singularity - pulls non-armored units into a void for some time
	Pull
	Shockwave
	Warp
	Throw
	Cluster Grenade


Class: Engineer
Summary: Best with tech powers
Powers: 
	Combat Drone - pet that can have a powerful missile
	Sentry Turret

Pick any class you want, but new players should go soldier and it's just my
opinion that vanguard is pretty fun and powerful. Engineer is interesting as
you basically have a constant pet.
