ME1 Imported Character Questions

  1. Do I start at level 30?
  2. Can I change my class?
  3. Can I change my looks?
  4. Do I keep my money?

I just bought ME1 for the second time. I'm trying to play through it so my ME3 play-through will be better.

  1. No, a lvl 60 will start at lvl 5
  2. Yes
  3. Yes
  4. No, but you get a bonus for importing a character with 1m crs.

3) In regard to this you can change your looks but you can't tweak your existing face. You either accept it as is, take the default face or create a new one.

Helpful as always. Thanks, you two.

Go here: for a full list of what transfers from Mass Effect over to Mass Effect 2 with a imported character. Or read below

[quote]Character Stats and Levels

Due to several gameplay changes, your character's level and abilities will not transfer over to Mass Effect 2. However, the game will acknowledge your character's level and morality and adapt it in ways that map across to the new system as well. The higher the level of the imported character, the greater the bonuses granted upon importing.

■A portion of the character's Paragon/Renegade points (up to 190 each, which requires the bar(s) to be 50% full) are transferred over.

■Importing a level 1 through level 49 character will grant 1,000 XP (the player starts at level 2), 20,000 credits, and 2,500 of each resource.

■Importing a level 50 through level 59 character will grant 2,000 XP (the player starts at level 3), 30,000 credits, and 5,000 of each resource.

■Importing a level 60 character will grant 4,000 XP (the player starts at level 5), 50,000 credits, and 10,000 of each resource.

■Having the "Rich" achievement from Mass Effect will grant an additional 100,000 credits.

■The import bonuses will stack with the Mass Effect 2 completion starting bonuses (200,000 credits and 50,000 of each resource). [/quote]

Can someone explain why I can't transfer my ME1characters to ME2? I finished the game and got the main menu screen, but when I go to ME2 it is listed but I can't start it.

You have to use the d-pad to scroll down not the thumbstick.
