Confession: Confession: I don’t see how anyone can like Bethany. If I’m not playing a mage, I kill her in the deep roads so I don’t have to deal with her.
This fandom’s obsession with killing characters they dislike - even Bethany, who at worst can best be described as “bland” - is creepy as fuck.
Seriously how the hell has Bethany ever managed to offend anyone?
Yeah I don’t know what ppl’s obsession is
Even someone harmless like Bethany, they’re like “YEWGH I DON’T LIKE THIS CHARACTER AND I WANT TO KILL THEM, ” like their very boring-ness is somehow so criminal that the character MUST DIE
Srsly guys what’s up with that?
Bethany is my BB and I will cut anyone who messes with her.
In all seriousness though, I really do not understand the knee-jerk reaction of “DISLIKE THEREFORE THEY MUST DIE.” There’s plenty of characters in DA, and other books, games, etc., who are popular and I am not a fan of. I think having an emotional reaction to a character, within reason, whether it’s positive or negative, makes the story more interesting. It means I’ve been engaged on some level by the writer. if I don’t like a character? I usually just don’t use them in my party, aside from their side quests. Not exactly a big deal.
Plus, and another thing I think people forget to do, is seperate dislike from quality. For example, I am not a huge fan of Merrill; however, I think she’s a well-written character and I respect what she brings to the story. I don’t think she needs to die simply because her personality, as written, doesn’t mesh well with my own.
I feel that (from the consumer perspective) the only people you should feel must die in any given narrative are very well written villains.
If you get an urge for any other character to be killed off then this reflects somewhat on your own state of mind. And you should put down the controller, the book, the knife, and take in some fresh air.
Y’all need to listen to Drakmarth, now. That there is some important life advice.
Like if you don’t like the character you could. You know. Not put them in your party. And not go talk to them.
I really don’t like [doesn’t actually matter which character] from ME2. I don’t try to arrange their demise, because… why? I just… don’t use them.
My canon Diana Shepard is a lady who romanced Liara and only Liara, and saved Ashley at Virmire mostly because I’d never done that before (I’ve had a previous canon Shep but she is scrapped). I thought I was done.
BUT YOU HAVE CONVINCED ME.
I am seriously considering making an alternate Shepard, maybe even an alternate Diana Shepard, who saves Kaidan solely because of you lot talking about him during ME3. So I have two questions:
Should I do the entire trilogy or just jump right into 3?
How the hell do you build this guy? Last time I played ME1 he was the weakest member of my team. I have no idea how to build a Sentinel, guys, please help.
Play the trilogy, Kaidan’s development in ME1 is amazing and in ME3 is just plain wowow.
I mostly focused on his offensive skills and his barrier in ME1 especially if you’re a biotic yourself, you can do lots of combos with him - also medic.
You won’t regret it and he’s far from weak in ME1, and in ME3 he’s very powerful with Reave as long as you don’t look at his barriers.
In ME1 he goes down a lot in early levels (much like an Adept Shepard) but will power up quite quickly. He’s your ultimate shit-disturber and debuffer, as well as providing large passive buffs to your squad’s healing and hacking levels.
Between Overload, Lift, Neuroshock and Stasis he can lock up or debuff almost any mob. His Barrier added to shield buffs from Electronics means he’s very solid, especially combined with the right gear- don’t leave home without that Medical Exoskeleton and +shield. Much like Tali, he starts out fragile but matures into granite.
He can’t shoot much but that’s not his forte anyway. He’s a character that benefits from micro-management of skills, too. Properly applied he can do a lot of crowd control and damage.
I had in my head that sentinel was a weak class in ME1, but I played one in my most recent playthrough and I was very impressed. ME1 Barrier is an awesome power, and Neural Shock, which I never used in my first playthrough, is a great debuff, especially when you level it up a bit. Plus all your electronics and decrypting, lift and throw and stasis, overload and sabotage….

Further adventures in getting over my headblock on drawing the characters I’ve put so much writing effort into. That great athlete body photo post went by again, so I scooped them and gave it a go. I wanted a more athletic body for my Shepard, someone who looks like she can run around in power armor all day shoulder-charging Cerberus mooks. I didn’t get into any scars on this one, though.
Sort of poking the body image hornet’s nest… but I still feel better today than I have in a week or two, and I’m reasonably happy with this. So woo, take that, asshole insecurities.
I would be pretty excited if Shepard actually looked like this in the game.
