Xbox magazine article? Edit

Does anyone know which issue of Xbox magazine that Wrex won best sidekick of the year? 72.192.48.119 02:41, 9 December 2008 (UTC)

Wrex in ME2 Edit

There is a dev interview where Wrex is confirmed to have a "really cool cameo". The link is buried deep within the mire of the internet but if you search Wrex and really cool cameo into google you get quite a few results. A more traceable dev interview also confirmed that any surviving party members from the first game wouldn't be written out the plot, and all would contribute to the plot in some way- which would likely include Wrex if you didn't plug him.--TheWilsonator 23:35, October 13, 2009 (UTC)

Source for age Edit

Whats the source for his age can i get a video link that shows him talking about it, because I am pretty sure he isnt a 1400 years old. ralok 05:49, November 15, 2009 (UTC)

It's been suggested because his father was a veteran of the Krogan Rebellions, and Wrex was mature enough to clash about it with him, and sound like he had fought in the Rebellions too. But it's in dispute. Personally I'd put Wrex's age at being closer to 200-300 years, but without reference to anything that happened around the time he was born, it's difficult to know. I'll remove it for the time being. --Tullis 15:18, November 16, 2009 (UTC)
I don't know, I think it's pretty clear that Wrex himself fought in the Krogan rebellions, which would make him much older than 300 years old. He's been wandering the galaxy for 300 years anyway, ever since his father betrayed him. That would put the date of his betrayal at 1883 CE, earth years. The Krogan Rebellions happened around 700CE. As to when they lasted, is uncertain. But he's definitely older than 300 years, or he would have to have been 1 year old at the time of his betrayal. If anything, a conservative estimate would be that he's 600-700 years old.--71.234.106.119 07:36, December 24, 2009 (UTC)

According to what he said, he had been working as a merc for hire for the past 350 years prior to the timeline of the game. He was a mature Krogan even before this, seeing as to the size of his scar relative to the size of his head. Lastly, Battlemasters like Wrex tend to outlive their regular Krogan counterparts due to their powers. Wrex is anywhere between 400-800 years old by my estimates.

H-Man Havoc 12:45, December 24, 2009 (UTC)

Where oes he say this, do you have a link to a video. Almost every conversation in mass effect has a video of it on youtube, so please if you find it post a link here. ralok 14:11, December 24, 2009 (UTC)

I can't give a site since I can't find one that says it, but in the game, he tells you this while you talk to him on the Normandy, after you ask him about his history, etc.....

That's where.


H-Man Havoc 20:25, December 24, 2009 (UTC)

I'm sorry, but he never says he's been a merc for 350 years... unless that was new dialog added to the PC version, which I never played. You can ask him "How long have you been a merc?" and all he says is "Long enough."--Matt 2108 21:00, December 24, 2009 (UTC)

But I think when you press on afterwards, he mentions how after killing his father, he worked as a Merc for the next few centuries, most recently working for Saren, but then acknowledging that he failed to show up for work due to his suspicions of Saren. He was right because the other Mercs Saren hired were dead within a week.

H-Man Havoc 01:56, December 25, 2009 (UTC)

Don't know about the game, but official releases from bioware describe him for wandering for 3 centuries.

I played the series multiple times through, and I assure you, Wrex is probably one of the oldest badass Krogan around. When you choose the Paragon statement when meeting with the Delatress and the new Primarch, and I quote, "The Genophage has gone on long enough," and Wrex comments ontop of that, "1076 years...if you're keeping track." .... I don't know about you, but I think only someone who's been there during day one of the Genophage and prior to that would know how long the Genophage has plagued his species. So I'm concluding he really is about over 1200 years old. The Omniscent Shadow of the Moon 16:34, May 16, 2012 (UTC)

First language, we have no need of it here. Second, please take speculation elsewhere as this isn't what talk pages are for. Lancer1289 17:25, May 16, 2012 (UTC)

Wrex rocks! Edit

Do you agree? 24.87.4.53 14:19, December 14, 2009 (UTC)

Yes,definitely.I was shocked when Wrex died on Virmire because of my choices(i went all paragon,but i forgot i needed charm).But I played again,and now he is alive and well in my squad.Too bad he isn't recruitable in ME 2...Banezi101 18:24, April 24, 2010 (UTC)Banezi101

Mass Effect 2 differences Edit

Has anyone noticed how Wrex is a little larger in Mass Effect 2? Most noticibly his hump is alot bigger and he looks a bit...overweight. I think it may be because as a Clan Leader he does fewer exercise than he used to, and probally is better fed. And he's alot friendlier than he used to be. (He seems to refer Shepard as a friend, and has less of an aggressive side about him.) Ironic, Wrex turned out to be a nicer guy in Mass Effect 2 while Liara who was probally the nicest crew member in Mass Effect 1 has now turned into a more darker person.

A large hump isn't a sign of overweight its a sign of power, if anything Wrex is stronger. Also Wrex main reason for being bitter was his race is dying because they wouldn't stop killing each other, now in Mass Effect 2 he has united the krogan tring to change there ways thus, more hopeful of the furture.

He's not fat, he's just big boned. ;) Faded-Myth Discuss My Workload 20:58, February 4, 2010 (UTC)

He's not any bigger, it's the armor he's wearing that makes him look different. Matt 2108 21:02, February 4, 2010 (UTC)

A Krogan's hump is where they store fats and other nutrients to help them survive lean times. The hump may be bigger because he's eatting better, being a clan leader and all. As for his friendlier disposition.. well, he IS spending a lot of time around the female clans now.

Source? Edit

"The distinctive scar across Wrex's face is due to a close encounter with a general of the turian army, not his father, as was previously speculated."

Where is the source for this? Is it mentioned in-game?--Aldrius 08:30, February 3, 2010 (UTC)

ur right i dont know when anybody in the games mentioned his scaresUrdnotgrunt 01:56, February 26, 2010 (UTC) urdnotgrunt


It's probably best to simply take things out when they have no source and might be wrong. Just make a note in the edit, and if the person wants it in, they know to put a source this time. If not, we know they're making it up.

Mass effect 2 Edit

What is the status of Wrex/Garrus in ME2 if he never joined your party in ME1?

From the few threads I've seen on this elsewhere, even if you bypass one of them during the early Citadel missions they show up when you take command of the Normandy and basically force their way on board and into your party. That said, it appears you can reject one or both of them, but rejecting Wrex means a rather confusing result. The import utility will say he survived. But when you go to Tuchanka, Wreav is in charge, and he mentions Virmire and mentions Wrex died, but in a manner vague enough that it doesn't necessarily imply the two events were linked. Garrus is equally confusing, if you don't take him along, he'll still act like the two of you went through hell together in the first game, even if you barely interacted with him. Source ShadowRanger 00:42, April 15, 2010 (UTC)
I saw a garrus video a few minutes ago and I see what you mean and your right Wrex does seem confusing
I would like to beleive if you didnt reruit wre that he ended up joining saren and was one of hte krogan who died on virmire. They overlooked a fe possibilites when making mass effect 2 it is kind of sad really ralok 02:45, April 15, 2010 (UTC)
I dont Know how to make a new section so im going to post here. In the latest Cerberus Daily News, it say that the Urdnot Wrex's clan tried to send werapons to Garvug. Does anyone think that that might have an impact in ME3?Sothourn5678 12:03, May 13, 2010 (UTC)

Well, it says that they allegedly tried to send weapons to Garvug. The article didn't actually confirm or deny it. As such, there is no reason to assume that it will impact ME3, any more than there is reason to assume that any of the events on Garvug, or any of the events mentioned in Cerberus Daily News for that matter, will have an impact on ME3. SpartHawg948 16:51, May 13, 2010 (UTC)

Sounds like it could be interesting. It also could be hinting at upcoming DLC, but then again it might just be to remind you not everything that happens in the universe is directly to Shepard (I mean some of the other news have nothing to do with anything, from memory there was one about a sport star using steriods or something like that).

Wrex is recrutable post Virmire mission

How to choose Wrex's fate for ME2 Edit

What do you do for Wrex in ME2? Because, somehow, you have to put down was he killed on Virmire or not. How would this be done?Project Harbinger 21:14, May 21, 2010 (UTC)

If Wrex is killed on Virmire, then he is dead, there is no chaning that. Just like which squadmate is killed in the blast is dead as well. Basically if Wrex isn't killed on Virmire in ME, then he will become leader of the krogan people in ME2. Wrex seems to be more farsighted than most krogan. However it is your choice on whether to keep him or not. Lancer1289 21:17, May 21, 2010 (UTC)

(edit conflict)What do you mean? Are you asking what happens in ME2 if Wrex was killed on Virmire? If so, it's simple. He's dead. Instead of having Wrex as leader of Clan Urdnot on Tuchanka, you get his 'broodbrother' Urdnot Wreav. If that isn't what you were asking, please rephrase the question, as it was a bit confusingly worded. SpartHawg948 21:18, May 21, 2010 (UTC)


Ah. I think Harbinger may have been confusing the continuity system of ME2 with one similar to KotOR II*. Harbinger, rest assured that ME2 does not use this system. ME2 is capable of directly importing the data from your completed character files from ME1 through the game configuration screen.

  • For those who haven't played, in KotOR II, what happened in KotOR I was retroactively determined by conversation options in the game. IE, an NPC mentions something about the player's character from KotOR I in dialogue, and you either confirm what they say or tell them something else, in accordance with what you did. The system was crude, and often resulted in huge generalizations. For example, if you told an NPC that your character from KotOR I was a sith, the game automatically assumed that you took the Dark Side option in every scenario in the game; with a jedi, the opposite. Most decisions from the 1st game had no impact on the sequel or were made for you. But that's what happens when LucasArts signs on Obsidian to do BioWare's job.75.48.20.25 02:41, August 2, 2010 (UTC)

Wrex and the Councel Edit

I did not uninstall ME1 and Wrex and the Councel were both alive when I finished the game. I was thinking while playing the game "ME2" that it would have been nice if you could have Wrex alive as he was in ME1. Now I find out he should be alive. I am a little pissed that he is not in the ME2 I am playing on the same PC that ME1 is on. What did I do wrong. I just read the default is for a dead Rachni Queen I sent her on her way in ME1 very much alive. New post by Clint.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by 99.155.181.206 (talk · contr).

Did you import your save? JakePT 23:48, July 22, 2010 (UTC)
As JakePT mentions, you must import your save for your decisions in Mass Effect to carry over. The Save File Transfer article has the mechanics of it. The gist of it is:
  1. Run the Mass Effect 2 configuration tool (Click "Configure" on the splash screen instead of "Play").
  2. Then go to the "Save Games" tab on the left-hand side, then press the "Copy Mass Effect 1 Saves" button.
  3. After that, launch Mass Effect 2, click the "New Game" button, then select "Import ME Character" Then select your character and go. Let me know if this needs more explanation.

Similarity to Canderous from KotOR Edit

"My people once fought the prevailing galactic government in a war, which we lost. Our weapons and armor were taken from us by the victors. Before the war, my people were a proud warrior society that lived in clans. We lay our dead to rest in mass graves. After the war, we've been reduced to guns for hire. I travelled with an individual who saved the galaxy from a piece of ancient, living machinery, left over from a civilization that disappeared thousands of years ago. Afterwards, I returned to my people to help them rebuild, where I wore silver armor. Who am I?"


It seems like Wrex and the Krogan in Mass Effect were heavily inspired by Canderous Ordo and the Mandalorians in the KotOR series. Which makes sense, since some of the production team members likely worked on both. 75.48.20.25 02:02, August 2, 2010 (UTC)

Wrex Dossier ME1 Edit

You forgot to mention, that Wrex can be dismissed for joining your squad - after talking to harkin and helpding out garrus you can say to wrex at dock 422 that you don't want him in the team and he'll rest in choras nest. i never had wrex on the team and finished me1. if you import your char in me2 it will sate that wrex survived but on tuchanka you will meet wreave - he will state that wrex died on virmiere - but wrex was never there ...

Unless he was. It is possible for people to go places without being in Commander Shepard's party, after all! Remember, Wrex was working for the Shadow Broker, and at the time, the SB was kinda angry at Saren. Maybe Wrex went to Virmire on his own to take Saren out. You're basically saying with the above statement that canon is wrong. SpartHawg948 01:33, March 29, 2011 (UTC)
well there is such a thing as plot holes, and I feel that something like this requires more explanation

ME3 Edit

Wrex is with you in the shuttle so do ya think he is a Squad Member?

First, please remove the spoiler tag from your comment, the tags are not intended for use on talk pages.
As for your question, I think it has been stated (or at least heavily implied) by the developers that Wrex is not a "full-time" squadmate in ME3, just an ally who appears in a few missions. He may be a temporary squadmate, but there's no evidence for that yet. -- Commdor (Talk) 11:20, February 19, 2012 (UTC)
I believe the word "temporary" squadmate was the word they used. Lancer1289 15:39, February 19, 2012 (UTC)

Wrex's final speach in ME3 Edit

Got some sort of a bug there, when on Earth he speaks to other krogans. I thought he was done speaking and clicked for his final words to Shepard, but it went all buggy and interrupted on every prase by the rest of his speach to soldiers. Now it's kinda too long to go back to, and i'm too tired after first pass on the game. :/ But still curious about his part of the ending. Can someone please type what was he talking about? I had genofage cured and Eve saved, is something. --Sainy 19:15, March 15, 2012 (UTC)


Does Wrex survive or die by default in ME2? Edit

TSIA. The other conditions I have are: Ashley survives Paragon Ending/Council SurvivesTheIMightyJelly 03:12, April 8, 2012 (UTC)

Wrex life? Edit

I haven't imported a save from mass effect 2 but I'm wondering is wrex dead by default I want to have the salarians and the Krogan work together but I need to find out wether wrex is dead first--98.86.170.197 02:47, July 27, 2012 (UTC)

Not recruiting Wrex in ME Edit

Has anyone done a playthrough of ME1 where they didn't recruit Wrex at all? Does this affect anything in ME2 or ME3? Centyreplycontribs – 22:43, January 17, 2013 (UTC)

you get wreav by default. see Talk:War Assets/Krogan.

Might as well put that information in. Centyreplycontribs – 01:04, January 19, 2013 (UTC)

ME3 Armament Edit

Please tell me the article is incorrect when it says he only wields Heavy Pistols instead of Assault Rifles in ME3? I haven't played Citadel yet; still downloading. Tali's no.1 fan (talk) 15:47, March 9, 2013 (UTC)

Wrex has Heavy pistols and Shotguns. Garhdo (talk) 15:53, March 9, 2013 (UTC)
Guess someone did forget how to hold a gun. Well, hopefully I will be able to change his arsenal through modding. Tali's no.1 fan (talk) 15:55, March 9, 2013 (UTC)

Recruiting him in ME1Edit

Can you recruit Wrex even if you already dealt with Fist? Dutchmasta 16:23, April 3, 2014 (UTC)

yes. Cattlesquat (talk) 01:17, April 4, 2014 (UTC)
