I soon have to make a decision to let Samara kill herself or not. I am trying to get the highest renegade score possible, but also trying to get as many war-assets to get the best of all the bad endings.

Are the renegade points gained by letting samara kill herself (and kill her daughter) "more" than what I would gain as having Samara as a war asset, as much as they can be compared?

    How do you expect us to compare Renegade reputation points versus War Assets? That's comparing apples to oranges.

  • @Mufasa for the purposes of achieving the ending I want, one choice is probably better than the other. Commented Mar 18, 2012 at 18:07

I believe letting her die will reward you more; However this is purley from memory and may not be entirely accurate.


There is no benefit from having Renegade points - as long as your reputation bar is full, you can handle any charm / intimidate situation as you see fit.

Alternatively, if you happen to like the Mass Effect 3 multiplayer, you can slowly farm that for as many war assets as you need (75 each time you promote), which makes the choice of war assets ultimately irrelevant also.

  • So it isn't like in the previous game where you had to make renegade decisions to get renegade dialogue choices? Commented Mar 18, 2012 at 18:29
  • @What'supDoc Correct. See this question for more info. Commented Mar 18, 2012 at 19:59
