Mass Effect 1 Legendary Edition

Negotiator's Request

Ben Chard

This Assignment takes place during your visit to the Citadel after the events at Virmire. The Normandy is grounded, giving your the opportunity to accept this Assignment.

You can find Keeler at the entrance to Flux on the Citadel.

How to Begin

Once you’ve completed the events at Virmire, you’ll be back on the Citadel once more and gain control after Captain Anderson asks you meet you in the Zakera Wards. As you head towards the stairs leading into Flux, you’ll find Keeler on the right.

Get the Drug

You’ll discoer that Keeler is a diplomat and needs some assistance in getting through his next meeting. Speaking to him more about his role and his duties, it’s clear to deduce that Keeler is an addict. At this point, there are several methods to completing this Assignment:

(1 of 3) You can choose to talk Keeler down with Charm or Intimidate

  1. Provided you have high scores in Charm or Intimidate, you can talk him out of needing the drugs. You’ll need either 8 points of Charm or 7 points of Intimidate to be able to select the option. This will end the Assignment right here as Keeler decides to leave it to his assistant and get the help he needs.

  2. If you decide to aid him in his addiction, make your way to the Med Clinic to pick up the Stim he requested. Once you bring it back to him, you have the option to ask him to get some treatment after the meeting and earn +2 Paragon.

  3. If you want to be a little more devious, agree to help him, head to the Med Clinic but instead, buy the Depressant from Dr. Michel. Bring this back to Keeler and he’ll insult you once he feels the effects of the drug almost immediately, taking this route will earn +9 Renegade.
