Heart of the Swarm/New Units
Heart of the Swarm
The Heart of the Swarm expansion pack will introduce a handful of new units per race. Three for the Protoss, two for Terran, and two for Zerg.
New Protoss units
The Oracle is a new harassment unit for the Protoss. It currently has three spells, Time Warp, Revelation, and Pulsar Beam.
The Tempest is a long-range assault unit.
The Mothership Core is a new spellcaster/support unit for the Protoss.
New Terran units
The Hellbat is a (new) unit that transforms from the Hellion. It has more health, but slower speed.
The Widow Mine is a new unit that "burrows" to attack.
New Zerg units
The Viper is a new spellcaster unit for the Zerg. It is slightly reminiscent to the Defiler.
The Swarm Host is a Ground-Assault unit for the Zerg, it produces Locusts which attack-move to the rally-point.
Locusts last only 15 seconds before they die. They can receive an upgrade to increase this time by 10 seconds, for a total of 25 seconds.
- The Oracle has gone though many changes, and it is possible it could go through more. Its abilities have a possibility to be changed again.
