As I said, it doesn't majorly change your story, but there are more NPCs than you think that actually recognize that you are a Mandalorian and will give very interesting/unique comments about it. It isn't only limited to class quests, there are quite a few planet-quest and side-quest NPCs that will recognize you and comment on it.

I know this because I try every conversation branch for every cutscene, so you may have to go digging for it. One of my favorite examples was the Jedi on Corellia who reveals that he is called "Verda JÚdii" by Mandalorians, and you have an opportunity to comment on what a true Mandalorian would do. He doesn't reveal that name otherwise. The Voss negotiations are also spiced up a lot because they will recognize your people's penchant for warfare.

So no, you aren't really missing that much unless you are really interested in details like this.

Wow, I'm just glad it doesn't change the story. I guess the reason I thought that something might be changed is because I was watching a bounty hunter video about someone who made their bounty hunter a mandalorian and Mandalore said something about running an errand for the Sith and that got me nervous.

Mandalore yells at you. Your final speech at the end of Act 3 includes no references to honor and being a Mandalorian. That's about it.

okay, thank you everyone for being so helpful. So, just for review

Becoming Mandalorian

(A) You are given a blacklist with extra missions
(B) You are called Mandalorian instead of just Bounty hunter
(C) You are now put into a "group" instead of being your own boss
(D) The lady at the end doesn't give you anything (See below to understand)
(E) Mandalore doesn't yell at you.
(F) Your Mandalorian companion talks to you, sometimes speaking in the language of the mandos.

Refusing to become Mandalorian

(A) Mandalore yells at you
(B) the lady, who I mentioned above, gives you something in addition to you still getting the blacklist bounty
(C) You are simply referred to as bounty hunter
(D) You don't join a group and can be your own man or woman (For female bounty hunters)
(E) Your companion had different lines

No, you get the same missions regardless. The Blacklist is the main story of Act 2 and is available to both Mandalorians and non-Mandalorians. Note that the first target in the blacklist is related to your Mandalorian companion so (imo) you are missing a lot of context if you aren't Mando.

Some NPCs, but not all.

No, it's the same either way. The Bounty Hunter is their own boss until act 3. They say that you're "part of a group" but it doesn't matter because there is a plot twist.

There is no lady at the end. I don't recall any lady "giving" anything either. If you mean romance, I wouldn't know because I didn't romance anyone. Also there are no female Mandalorian NPCs that you meet in the class storyline that I can remember.

Quote:

Correct.

Quote:
(F) Your Mandalorian companion talks to you, sometimes speaking in the language of the mandos.
Correct, I don't believe he will try to teach you the language or the Resol'nare if you aren't.

As I said it's mostly just flavor dialogue and lore background if you are interested in that. The storyline remains the same, and kudos to the writers for making the story amazing regardless of which path you take. You can be an honorable Mandalorian, a bloodthirsty killer, a "do anything for credits" mercenary, or anything in between and there are almost always choices and dialogue options that fit well with these character types.

Also, in general Gault and Skadge will get massive negative affection for most Mando-like choices while Mako and Torian and Blizz will like everything you do. This isn't a big enough deal to warrant changing your story but as a Mando I think I got -3000 affection with Skadge at the last mission and had to buy him a whole bunch of gifts again...

I told Mandalore to shove it because I had no interest in being a Klingon- I mean Mandalorian. Torian still spoke plenty of Mando`a to me and I do believe he tried to teach me at least some of the Mandalorian traditions, though it's been a year so I may be mistaken.

To reiterate what others have said, becoming a Mandalorian or not really doesn't change anything in regard to the storyline. You still do all of the same things, it's just that when you're talking to people you may say slightly different things to them or they may tell you a little more background info or things of that nature. To the best of my knowledge you will not miss out on any events whatsoever. I'm pretty sure females can even romance Torian if you're not a Mandalorian, he'll just try to convert you a lot.

As for affection, with the changes they made in 2.0 you won't get such large hits anymore, positive or negative. You'll still lose a lot of points with Skadge if you act honorably, but it shouldn't be possible to lose anywhere near 3k in one mission anymore. And besides, Skadge is a lump of poo who shouldn't be on my ship in the first place, so who cares what he thinks.

Yes there was a lady who gives you while also telling you that you made the trip worth her time. That's the lady who I am talking about.
