Amon's Fall is the third and final mission in the Into the Void Epilogue campaign of Legacy of the Void, and the final mission of the main StarCraft II campaign.

HistoryEdit

BackgroundEdit

"Your newfound strength gives you no advantage here. I have fought and killed xel'naga before."
"You have never faced anything like me."

- Amon and Sarah Kerrigan(src)

Sarah Kerrigan chased Amon through the Void, finding him on a platform shielded by void crystals and shadows of the Void. Kerrigan landed and established a beachhead with her Swarm, with Commander Jim Raynor and Hierarch Artanis following close behind. Kerrigan informed her allies that Amon was shrouded in a barrier of void energy that made him virtually invincible. However, the barrier could be taken down by destroying the void crystals that powered it. The zerg, terran, and protoss set up their bases and launched their final assault on Amon.[1]

MissionEdit

"You are but a product of the flawed cycle. Manipulated for the entirety of your existence..."
"You know nothing about me! I care little for the xel'naga's Infinite Cycle or your twisted lies. No, I choose something different. I choose freedom... for all of us."

- Amon and Sarah Kerrigan(src)

The void crystals that protected Amon would cycle over the platform at regular intervals, giving the three factions a chance to attack them. However, Amon would use void chasms to spawn more shadows of the Void, and use void shards to try and destroy any attacking forces. Kerrigan did not relent, and his shield slowly began to weaken.

Amon then began ripping the ground out from underneath the allies' mining bases, limiting the forces they could field. This did not deter them, and the three eventually destroyed all the crystals, leaving Amon vulnerable.

Kerrigan faced Amon, and he stated she was nothing but a pawn in the xel'naga's design. Kerrigan retorted that she cared nothing for the Infinite Cycle, and that she chose freedom for all life in her universe.[1] She unleashed a blast that vaporized Amon. Raynor was enveloped in a white light, with Kerrigan's voice telling him to go.[2]

HomecomingEdit

"You about ready to get out of here, cowboy?"
"Hell... It's about time."

- Kerrigan and Raynor(src)

Two years later, Raynor was sitting in Joeyray's Bar on Mar Sara. On the television, Kate Lockwell was reporting on the third anniversary of the fall of Arcturus Mengsk and the rise of Emperor Valerian Mengsk as ruler of the Terran Dominion, and that Admiral Matt Horner supported this new government along with the Dominion armed forces, as well as peace talks with the Daelaam. Raynor reflected how far he had come, looking at his badge, pictures of his Raiders, and thinking back to his conversations with Horner, Tychus Findlay and Dark Prelate Zeratul. Behind him, the door opened, and a human Kerrigan entered. She asked him if he was ready to go. Raynor smiled and replied, "Hell... It's about time."[2]

Raynor was never seen again; his badge was recovered in Joeyray's Bar.

Under Valerian, the Dominion entered a new era of reconstruction and peace. Zagara, new ruler of the Zerg Swarm, forcibly took control of Char and surrounding systems. Highlord Alarak refused to join the Daelaam on Aiur, and set out to find his own world for the Tal'darim, allowing any of his warriors who disagreed one chance to stay with the Daelaam. A mysterious bloom of life occurs on previously barren worlds, baffling Dominion scientists.

WalkthroughEdit

The player spawns in the southwest corner of the map, with allies to their north and east. Shadows of the Void spawn from chasms that can be temporarily closed. Void crystals will slowly float by the platform, but if attacked Amon will spawn high health void shards to defend them.

The key to this mission is establishing an economy early, massing high end units with maxed upgrades, and pushing. Ultralisks and hydralisks are a good combination, as they can cover ground and air. Kerrigan is outfitted with powerful abilities, but her ability to mass heal her army will be the most valuable one. Use it whenever energy is available, and use her Quantum Ray on any void crystals that are close to escaping. Take advantage of the malignant creep and creep teleport abilities by spreading creep as fast as possible to reinforce any position on the map.

Brood lords are also an excellent option for this mission as well, as they can be teleported by Kerrigan's creep teleport; furthermore, their broodlings form a free buffer against the constructs' attacks. Their attacks can attack the void crystals, despite them seeming to be air units.

Amon will begin to destroy the platforms under the player's mining bases, so having all three bases up and running as quickly as possible should be the priority. This mission is not timed, so do not waste forces chasing void crystals early if not prepared. If a void crystal spawns over an island, use an overlord to spread creep under it, then use Kerrigan's mass teleport to bring forces there.

Currently there is a bug that if Kerrigan is respawning when Amon destroys the platform she is respawning on, she will not come back. Take care when pushing with Kerrigan when your base is the next to be hit.[1]
