Jin Shi's Starcraft Expansion: Brood War FAQ

Please do note that I did have some help with this FAQ and those people 
who did help will be duly noted in the credit sections. No part of this 
FAQ can be used without the writers consent. If I find any of this info 
on someone else's FAQ, I will send the Zerg after you.

I am only going to tell you about the new units for now. As I get better 
and better, I will add on a walk through. Don't expect anything big in 
the near future for I am trying to beat the Protoss Campaign.

The New Units:

Medic: He is for the Terran only. What can I say? All he does is heal 
your people. He will do it automatically if he is pretty close to you 
infantry. I suggest at least two medics if you plan to use infantry 
strike forces. He also has a ability called Optical Flare. What this 
does is that the affected unit's view will be lessened greatly. It is 
great to get around pesky units. If you use this on a detector unit,  he 
will no longer be a detector unit. The same goes for cloaked units. If 
you use Optical Flare on a cloaked unit, he can't cloak anymore.

Valkyrie Frigate:
The other new Terran unit. I haven't used it much but it is VERY 
powerful and strong.

This unit is for the Zerg. It is an evolved Hydralisk. This is my 
favorite overall unit. It can burrow even though if you didn't reasearch 
burrow at the hatchery. Also when you do, it become a Sunken Colony. If 
any troops get near it, it shoots out a wave of black tentacles and 
damages the enemy.

This is like a Guardian because it is evolved from a Mutalisk. However, 
unlike the Guardians, Devourers are air to air attackers. You should 
have a group of Devourers for air attackers and Guardians for ground 

Dark Templar:
This isn't really new to Starcraft because you played as them in 
Starcraft but you were never able to build them. If you combine two, you 
get one of the new units, a Dark Archon.

Dark Archon:
These are two Dark Templars put together. They have an awesome ability 
called Mind Control. It does exactly that. Target a enemy unit that you 
want and then use Mind Control to gain control of it. The only problem 
is that it uses up all your energy and shields!

This is a new air unit for the Protoss. It has the Disuption Web with is 
a Lockdown for structures. It is really useful and it lasts for a good 
long time but not forever.

This is what I have so far for Brood War. I hope to have more info on 
this kick butt game from Blizzard.
