Romance Guide (Paramour Achievement)

NOTE: I believe I have everyone, though some people have been telling me Diana Allers can be romanced. I will update if I find this to be true and you can obtain the achievement from her.


Paramour 25
Establish or rekindle a romantic relationship.

Warning:
The characters in this game do not shy away from taboos. Be this male-male, female-female, or even human-alien.

Romancing:
Those familiar with previous Mass Effect games, know that you can romance another character. You have multiple options. You must build a bond with a specific character and continue to make good impressions. As things progress, you will eventually draw near the end of the game. The character you have been building a bond with will want to speak with you (just in case you don't survive the mission). This is where the achievement unlocks, as you watch the cut-scene unfold. In Mass Effect 3, you have not lost your charm. Here are your possible relationship options:


Quick Look at Romance Possibilities

-Imported Character-

Male -
Ashley, Liara, Tali, Miranda, Jack, Cortez, Kaidan
Female - Garrus, Kaidan, Liara, Traynor

---Special Conditions---

Ashley- Must have survived in Mass Effect 1
Kaidan- Must have survived in Mass Effect 1
Tali- Must have been romanced in Mass Effect 2 and survived
Miranda - Must have been romanced in Mass Effect 2 and survived
Garrus- Must have been romanced in Mass Effect 2 and survived
Jack- Must have been romanced in Mass Effect 2 and survived

This means as a male, you may only have the choice to romance Liara or Cortez. As female, it may mean you may only have the choice to romance Liara or Traynor. This is of course if you chose the wrong person to die in Mass Effect 1 and lost all the possibilities to death from Mass Effect 2.

-New Character-

Male
- Ashley, Liara, Cortez, Kaidan
Female - Kaidan, Liara, Traynor

-Special Note- Traynor is the absolute easiest to romance with (female-female only). All you have to do is talk to her a lot and she's always in the same spot on the Normandy. Sadly, she is not an option if you are a male. Though, you can romance Cortez whom is essentially the male version of Traynor (as in easy, readily available, and same gender).

ROMANCE GUIDE





Character:
Ashley Williams
Gender Needed to Be: Male
Previous Mass Effect Influence: If you romanced Ashley in Mass Effect 1 and romanced someone else in 2, you will have to apologize when she brings it up.
Availability: You must have chosen to save her in Mass Effect 1. If you didn't, she will not be in your game. If starting a new game, make sure she is the chosen one when given the option.
Steps to take:

1.
During your first choices talking to her on Mars, always make sure to say what seems to be "nice". You need to gain her trust.

2. When you get back to the Citadel after her injury, be sure to choose the option where you can visit her before going to the council. Do not choose "business first".

3. When going to visit her for the first time at the hospital, be sure to buy her a gift at shop by the counter (the computer). Want to snag her the perfect gift? Buy her "The Collected Alfred Tennyson" books. You will actually give her the book in step 4, because at this moment she is not awake.

4. Visit her 2 more times and talk with her. Do so after the mission in Palaven and before Genophage mission.

5. During the mission where you fight in the Citadel, you will have to use your paragon skills to make her keep trusting you.

6. If everything went according to plan, she will eventually ask to meet with you. Make sure if she doesn't bring up having a serious relationship, that you do.




Character: Dr. Liara T'Soni
Gender Needed to Be: Male or Female
Previous Mass Effect Influence: If no previous romance, you may still romance her. If romanced in Mass Effect 1, when on the Normandy for the first time, you may choose to continue the relationship. This does not interfere with other romances if you choose to go those routes instead.
Availability: New or Imported, romanced prior or not romanced at all. She friendly to anyone who gives her attention.
Steps to take:

1. Whenever speaking to her, always be nice.

2. If romanced in Mass Effect 1, be sure to talk to her the first time you are on the Normandy. Choose to continue the relationship.

3. You must visit the Citadel again as a mission, but before this mission, visit it on your own. Do this before taking on Tuchanka. Go to the Presidium Commons. You'll find Liara going over some things by herself. Talk to her and keep up a good conversation. If everything goes according to plan, she will go to your cabin and show him a time capsule she made, furthering the bond.

4. Later on she will finally ask to meet with you on the Citadel.





Character: Samantha Traynor
Gender Needed to Be: Female
Previous Mass Effect Influence: None, this can be a new or imported character.
Availability: She will be on the Normandy without you having to do anything. She is the specialist. She is always at her station and is readily available to talk to.
Steps to take:

1.
Talk to her on the Normandy for the first time. Always pick the positive options.

2. After the Palaven mission, talk to her. Keep investigating the various topics and make sure you accept to investigate the Grissom Academy. Tell her she is doing a good job and make her happy.

3. Continue getting missions from her and talking smoothly. Investigate her personal life.

4. Speak with her before the final mission. Talk to her about chess. She will send an email inviting to play against you. She gets jealous of the awesome shower and you can offer she try it out to see just how awesome it is. At this time you realize she is using precious water resources and can join her to save water.





Character: Garrus Vakarian
Gender Needed to Be: Female
Previous Mass Effect Influence: If you romanced Garrus in Mass Effect 2, you can continue the relationship if he survived.
Availability: Once he is aboard the ship, you can start talking about your relationship.
Steps to take:

1. After the Palaven mission, you can talk to him on the Normandy. Go to the Crew Deck and find him at the main battery. He will bring up the relationship in which case you can accept.

2. After the Tuchanka mission, he will be in the Combat Information Center on the Bridge with Joker. Talk to him there.

3. Afterwards, speak to him every mission or so to keep up conversation. He will eventually ask to meet with you and ask you make a commitment.





Character: Jack
Gender Needed to Be: Male (Female needs confirmed)
Previous Mass Effect Influence: If you romanced Jack in Mass Effect 2, you can continue the relationship if she survived.
Availability: You must accept a mission from Samantha Traynor (the girl always by the galaxy map on the Normandy). You must do the mission at Grissom Academy to find her. This can be missed if you neglect the mission for too long (and keep doing other missions).
Steps to take:

1. Accept and start the mission at Grissom Academy when available from Traynor.

2. Always talk nice to Jack when you meet up with her.

3. After the missions, you'll be on a shuttle and there will be a paragon trigger that pops on the left side of the screen. You need to press it in time.

4. You'll get an email from her. She wants to meet up. Do so and talk to her until you have the option to commit.

Character: Miranda Lawson
Gender Needed to Be: Male
Previous Mass Effect Influence: If you romanced Miranda in Mass Effect 2, you can continue the relationship if she survived.

2.
Once you are done with Priority: Citadel 2, she will send you a message/email.
