I completed HotS for the first time a few days ago, on Normal. Failed maybe one mission on first attempt (forgot about the Hybrid timer in the lab) but none of the others, even with plenty of messups. And my first time playing anything Zerg. WoL was nowhere near that forgiving. HotS was much easier than my first ever WoL run on Normal.
Did Char → Zerus → Kaldir → Space → Skygeirr → Final. Prioritised Zerus to get ‘Supreme’ and the 3rd column of abilities asap. Did Space before Sky so that I could have 5 missions at lvl 60+ instead of just 3. (In Conviction, which units do you miss out on from the reinforcements by not doing Sky first? Infestors?)
What’s the recommended order for LotV to make it easiest? I’ll do my Hard and Brutal runs of these two campaigns from the Master Archive, so Unit availability & Solarite will matter more then - based on the run I’m doing now.
PS. Not interested in “best canon order” - that’s the only ones which keep coming up in searches.
