If i have a adept on mass 2 level 40 will he be an adept with same powers and level when mass 3 comes out? or is that all reset?, also will i lose any friends if they die in mass 2 for mass 3?
I'm not sure what all gets transferred. I'm sure the powers maybe not as they may change the way you level up. From what I saw the characters not coming back for ME3 was Kasumi and Samara/Morinth.
Firstly, level 30 is the max on ME2 (60 ME1).
Im not sure how ME3 will start, but I dont think there is going to be a re-set. Maybe 30-60?
As for characters that die in your playthrough, they will remain dead.
