Finished every mission in brutal and played through master archive in normal to get all the achievements. It took me 22 minutes to end the last mission in normal. An hour for my first brutal try....frown.gif

I think the crucial things are

1. Must have double drone upgrade and drop pod. Double drone is the best Kerrigan ability in this game IMO. Drop pod helps a lot to supplement your army early on.

2. Get the expansion site ASAP. In normal, it's not hard to secure that location with little defense. I think three or four hatcheries are enough for this mission.

3. Drone drone drone until full saturation. You don't need whole lot of army in normal to defend first few minutes.

4. Do the bonus objectives first. They didn't do a thing in brutal but they are really useful in normal.

5. Get whatever combo you like and push hard. I personally like roach lings and some hydras. With the economy you settled up, you'll be able to replenish your army very quickly. So just attack.

Mass ultralisks with Torrasque evolution+Tissue assim (they basically come close to unkillable on normal), Kerrigan alone is more than enough to take out any air units - crushing grip to disable them, kinetic blast to deal massive damage to them, mend to keep her alive and ability efficiency so you can do it more often. If you can, get ground attack upgrades for the ultras at an evo chamber. Once you have max miners, turn two drones into two more hatcheries for extra larva (no queen inject in campaign rolleyes.gif ).


(I just have some mastery achievements left tongue.gif ).
Thanks a lot, I'll give it a try now thumb.gif
I've done pretty much all the hard achievements now, I've been putting this one off for some reason biggrin.gif

EDIT: Thanks Whalemeal!

Anybody did the "Psi-lence is Golden" achievement? I found it's almost impossible with my current strategy and I can't think of anything else.

Suib-12 minute in Harvest of Screams misson...and you waste first two minutes before the actual start. Any idea?

He screwed up the first game after taking a good lead. Game #2 was just plain bad. Can't say much for game #3 lol. The real story is Leenock using swarm hosts as well as he did thumb.gif Rain vs. Seed was amazing to watch although game 2 was a roflstomp due to phoenix range tongue.gif

I just did it in 10:42(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D-V-HpKkCUQ), but I did it through the master archives with a leveled kerrigan. It may or may not be possible if you do the mission earlier. Raptor lings are very helpful, just skip their units and go straight for the objective.
