None of the four arks that departed the Milky Way 600 years ago fared very well when they arrived in the Andromeda galaxy. Only the human ark, the Hyperion, made it to the Nexus on its own. Over the course of the game, you’ll recover the salarian ark as part of the “Hunting the Archon” main story mission and the asari ark during Cora’s loyalty missions.
The turian ark takes a little more work. You’ll pick up the tread of these missions on Havarl pretty early on in the game, then you won’t hear anything for a while. A little later, you’ll get an email that will point you to the resolution of the story. The decision you make at the end has an effect on the end of the game.
Turian Ark: Not Dead Yet
After you complete the “Helping Havarl’s Scientists” mission and debrief Kiiran Dals, you’ll start getting hints that there might be other Milky Way aliens on Havarl. Kiiran will direct you to Torvar for more information.
- Speak to Torvar about the turians. He’ll be standing right next to Kiiran Dals.
- Find the turian encampment.
- Defend turians from the roekaar. When you show up, the turians will be under attack from some roekaar. Clear them out to protect the turians.
- Speak with the turian leader.
