Cora is one of the first members of your crew you meet in the game. Even before you're first introduced to the Tempest, Cora is there as part of Ryder's father's squad. After your time on the Nexus, Cora joins your squad. She turns out to be a great asset due to her strong Biotic powers. Required: Male Ryder.
If you're not interested in romancing Cora we've got plenty of other useful information for you on our Mass Effect Andromeda Guide and Mission Walkthrough. It's got guides to AVP and Cryo Pods, a look at mining and crafting, plus how to solve Remnant Puzzles.
Mass Effect Andromeda Cora - How to Romance
Once the preliminary missions on Eos are complete and you've made a settlement there, you'll be able to get to know your crew more intimately, including Cora. She has a knack for gardening, so you can usually find her toward the middle of the ship on the lower level tending to some plant life in her quarters. Here's a good rule of thumb for the romancing characters in Mass Effect: Andromeda: romantic dialog options will always be the left option in the dialog wheel, and it will always have a large heart icon next to it. So keep an eye out for those options when speaking to a character you are trying to romance.
Be sure to talk to her after every main story mission that you complete. Cora's conversation options will change based on what missions you have completed. Even if she wasn't part of the squad you brought along for the mission, find her and talk to her afterward. Once Eos has been settled, Cora will talk about losing your father. Ask her if she misses him. After a line of questioning about her past and abilities, you can choose the romantic option of, "You and I can handle anything." After that conversation, complete the "Signs of Life" side quest on Eos. You'll then have to at least visit Aya and Kadara.
After Voeld, check your email to find one from Cora. After acknowledging the message, go and talk to her. She'll have a loyalty mission for you. You'll have to head out to help another pathfinder in need. Cora will meet one of her mentors on that trip, and she'll be gravely disappointed in her. Complete this mission to become closer to Cora. It won't automatically lead to romance, but it will unlock the next part of her romance line.
Following the mission "Hunting the Archon" Cora will have some more info for you. Speak to her and she'll ask you to accompany her to Eos on the mission "A Foundation." Head to Eos with Cora in your squad. She'll take you to spot on Eos with fertile soil where Cora will be able to plant a garden. It's a garden that she can enjoy with you. If you have flirted with Cora three times and you're not in another exclusive relationship, you can kiss her here.
Once you're back on the Tempest, check your email. You'll have an appreciative one from Cora. Meet her in the Pathfinder's Quarters to finish off her romance line.
Cora is one of the more involved characters to romance in the game. There's a lot of boxes to check, but I suppose that's the price of love in a lonely galaxy. If you're looking to romance the other members of the crew, be sure to check out the guides for Jaal, Suvi, Liam, Vetra, Gil and Peebee if those crew members are more your style. We've also got a guide to solve Remnant Puzzles if you're finding them pretty hard going.
Hopefully you're now in a lovely relationship with Cora. If not, make sure you followed our advice and didn't miss any steps.
