Forge (Legacy of the Void)
- This article covers the current multiplayer version of this building. For another version see Forge (Wings of Liberty and Heart of the Swarm).
The Forge is a structure in the Protoss Tech Tree, which requires a Nexus before it can be warped in. The Forge is the research center for Ground Weapons, Ground Armor, and Shields upgrades. It also unlocks the Photon Cannon.
Like most Protoss structures, the Forge can only be warped in at a location powered by a Pylon. It can only research upgrades while it remains within the range of the Pylon, otherwise it becomes unpowered and cannot function. An unpowered Forge still allows the creation of Photon Cannons.
Ground Weapons Upgrades
Ground Armor Upgrades
These upgrades affect the following units: All units and buildings. A Twilight Council is needed in order to research Levels 2 and 3.
In PvZ, Forge Fast Expand is a common opening and involves a Forge being constructed as the first part of a wall blocking access to the natural in order to unlock access to the Photon Cannon for defensive purposes.
