Help me with Mutalisks T.T

Posts: 701
I'm Protoss and have been having a tough time (In Heart of the Swarm) with dealing with large/increasing numbers of mutalisks.

Basically in WoL I would sort of soften them up slowly so they had less health each time they came back, but now they simply regen it all so I can't really do that any more.

Phoenix maybe? I feel like they aren't that good against, well, anything else..... So maybe not but if someone could help it would be much appreciated! :D

(Note: Yeah they're probably balanced, didn't say otherwise).

Don't Stalkers counter Mutas?

You could always press F12 in game to see the counter list.

though you are right, it's kind of hard because they can get in and do some damage each time. They will take a few volleys from my stalkers but then can come back with full health each time. It's fine if they don't know what they're doing (commit too much and lose mutas, or come back before full regen) but not otherwise

I don't know much about HotS, but I'd recommend phoenix + ht/archons if he's committing to mass muta. Phoenixes can kite them all day, and storm + archon splash will massacre them if they ever clump to try and fight your mutas.

I usually use storm and cannons to defend while i double or triple produce phoenixes and when i get roughly 1/3 to 1/2 as many phoenixes as he has mutas, i chase him away and attack his base.

Phoenix alone should do the job. With the +1 range buff it's even easier to micro against them and make even a few phoenix be incredibly efficient against mutas.

Plus mutalisk cannot run from the phoenix without good micro.
