If you rewrite the heretics, allying with the quarians will net you fewer war assets or more if you side with the geth, and vice versa if you destroy the heretics. If you broker peace between them, I guess the total amount would be even either way. Will-O-Wisp
Actually if you broker peace you gain slightly more war assets then if you destroyed the heretics. I can't recall the actual numners (they are on the wiki anyway), but rewriting the geth adds
+50 and reduces the Quarains by 25-40 for a net gain of 10-25 war assets. I should have written it adds +150 but removes -100 in Quarian losses for a +50 net gain.
Incorrect. Destroying the Heretics will decrease Geth strength by 150 overall and increase Quarian strength by 150 overall. The numbers are reversed if you rewrite them. If peace is brokered, there is no difference between the two options.
- I can't get to the Wiki right now but doesn't rewriting the geth add 150 but reduces the quarians by -100 for a +50 net gain in peace? I have these numbers written down in my notes.
- Nope. The Patrol, Heavy, and Civilian Fleet each receive a 50 Asset mod based on your decision. That's a total of -150 for a rewrite and +150 for a destroy. I quadruple-checked myself on the Wiki, just to be sure.
If you rewrite the heretics,the geth will be stronger when you fight them.
Apparently, you also end up fighting more enemy units on the Dreadnought and the Rannoch missions. I haven't been through Insanity yet, but I imagine that the difference between Rewrite Insanity and Destroy Insanity is negligible. If you're really struggling with those missions, go back through ME2 and destroy the heretics if you rewrote, but I wouldn't do it, it seems like a wasted effort. RShepard227
