Which Should You Choose in ‘A Legacy Forged’?

Should You Choose Aceles or Microbes in Starfield’s ‘A Legacy Forged’ Quest?

When faced with the choice of letting Aceles handle the Terrormorphs or deploying microbes in Starfield’s ‘A Legacy Forged’ quest, players are presented with a difficult decision. But ultimately, the outcome remains the same: the Terrormorphs will be eliminated. The true dilemma lies in the morality of the decision.

Choosing to deploy the microbes will result in the elimination of the Terrormorphs, but it comes with consequences. The microbes cannot differentiate between hostile aliens and innocent beings, causing the death of local flora and fauna. Additionally, there’s a possibility that Terrormorphs will develop immunity over time.

On the other hand, choosing Aceles means that the bioweapon won’t directly harm humans. Aceles solely targets the Terrormorphs, although it may work slower than the microbes. This option ensures the safety of the planet’s inhabitants.

It’s worth noting that your choice will affect your relationship with certain companions. While Sam supports the use of Aceles, other companions like Sarah, Barrett, and Andreja prefer the microbes. Aligning with your favorite companion may earn you some additional favor. However, in the grand scheme of things, the choice doesn’t have a lasting impact on the galaxy.
