Kite's Nest

Nathan Garvin

This page contains information about the Kite’s Nest cluster in Mass Effect 3, particular information about what war assets and resources you can gain by exploring and scanning the systems comprising the Kite’s Nest cluster.

Another system available to you at the start of the game, it consists of only two systems. Harsa is host to the system’s Mass Effect Relay, while the distant Untrel yields some credits and fuel. Given Untrel’s distance, this might not be a fuel-neutral endeavor, despite the 400 fuel you can salvage between the two systems.

The objective for the mission [Citadel: Pillars of Strength] can be found by scanning Khar’shan, in the Harsa system.

You are Commander Shepard, the first human spectre and elite soldier of the Alliance, tasked with uniting the galaxy in the fight to stop the Reapers destroying everything you hold dear.
