All credit goes to Nak3d eli and his amazingly helpful videos. Although I currently have not completed the campaign on legendary difficulty I am breezing through it with this guy's help.
I also first completed the campaign on heroic to help me get a feel for both the game and the enemies.
This is for those of you who have already completed the game but really want to do it on legendary both quickly and effectively.

LeejaarNak3d Eli has put up Mission #7 - Composer up on Youtube now. Pretty helpful too, especially when you have to turn on the shields to stop more Phantoms dropping enemies in the hangar. Even though I did it yesterday legit.

DigiTekhThanks for posting these videos from this user. They have helped greatly so far for on the first 3 missions. Some things i did a bit differently as i'm not a crackshot like him. But being able to pass over entire fights helped my sanity and has saved me alot of time.

MetroidkillahOh, man, I could barely believe that shortcut in "Shutdown"! I refuse to call it a "glitch"; it looks pretty intentional to me- almost like 343 know how bad that particular mission would be on Legendary. Either way, it looks like Nak3d eli makes some pretty good videos, so thanks for posting them.

Two more missions and that cheev is mine.

AnemonemanThanks, brilliant guides! Didn't follow many, I mainly used them as reference to see how far I was, but the parts I used were very good indeed.

Lazy with StyleOne additional note to shorten the first mission Dawn even more: Before reaching the part where you get to the outer hull of the spaceship kill the Elite guarding the final door and pick up the Concussion Rifle. When you get outside run past the enemies landing on the left and at the end of the area turn left to the structure where you have to activate the button. You should now stand on the other side of it facing some rubble and broken steel girders. Jump through the debris and you should be right under the open room standing on a horizontal girder. If you jump from here, you can't reach the platform above you but it is very close. Instead jump and shoot the Concussion Rifle 2 times down to get an extra jump boost. Do it on the left side of the girder facing and shooting the vertical one crossing it. Then you are up without killing one single enemy outside. Quickly activate the button. There will be an Elite shooting you in this room but even on legendary you have enough shields to endure that if you are fast. After this part run to the next button jumping out of the open window like it is shown in the mission video above. Sorry for my English but I am not a native speaker and this part of Dawn is difficult to describe.

Crater BobFinally got this achievement tonight, and the last video for Midnight REALLY helped me plan things out. I didn't speedrun it like the video publisher did, I started from Charlie without the Incineration Cannon, and stayed back on the upper levels to shoot the Crawlers, Watchers, and Knights, which REALLY helped out. I forgot to grab the Incineration Cannon ammo on the second to last platform before losing Cortana at the last console, so I ended up close-ranging the last three Knights with the Scattershot, took a few tries, but I got it.

Just a heads-up, if you use the speedrunners method, BE AWARE that on the second platform which you can completely skip altogether, YOU WILL GET FRUSTRATED!!! angry It took me like forty tries to get across from landing to jump-boost spot. Once you make it across, MAKE SURE YOU LAND ALL YOUR INCINERATION CANNON SHOTS, THERE IS NO CHECKPOINT UNTIL YOU REACH THE SECOND FLOOR ON THE THIRD PLATFORM!!!

Other than that, take it slowly and one step at a time, I can confirm 100% that these methods work! claptoast
