In Mass Effect Legendary Edition, not everything is pure clutter. There are some dark tasks you can complete to help make the galaxy a better place, or sometimes worse, depending on the type of Shepard you want to play. When you arrive in Noverie, Asari, named Mallene Calis, wishes to talk to you about a Binary Helix employee, and if you work for her, she can implant a virus into their device so she can use it to spy on their company.
Finding Noverie: Espionage
Upon arrival, you will find the Noveria: Espionage Mission at the hotel inside the Noveria. When you enter the hotel, Mallene is just to your left and will try to ask for your attention when entering the room.
Should you help Mallen?
When talking to Mallene, he will explain his plan and that you will be paid for your task. You can choose to go the Paragon route with reference to Alliance regulation and how extremely important the uniform is to you, and force Mallene not to see you as an asset again and leave. You get eight Paragon points and the mission is over. This is the best way to earn the most Paragon points for this quest. While you may decide to help her, you can talk to even more Paragon points and experience points.
If you agree to help Mallen, talk to Rafael Vargas, the human agent for Binary Helix. You can talk to him and tell him right after the show that Asari wants to spy on him. Going this way will earn you Paragon points and experience. To get these points, return to Mallene and let her know what you did.
If you would like to go the Renegade route, talk to Vargas that you want to work with Binary Helix. Whenever Vargas gives his order to rub the back of his neck. When he does, push on it and it requires that you have a high spell or intimidation to complete these tasks. All you have to do is continue the conversation until you hear the device beep. You are finished and can return to Mallene for your reward and your Renegade points.
However, if you want to get the most Renegade points, only after agreeing to work with Mallene, go to Vargas and immediately tell him what it’s like to go on the Paragon route. When you return to Mallene, choose to lie to her and meet the paycheck. It’s the best way to get the most Renegade points.
