Lair (Legacy of the Void)
- This article covers the current multiplayer version of this building. For another version see Lair (Wings of Liberty and Heart of the Swarm).
The Lair is a Zerg building that is the direct upgrade from a Hatchery.
The Lair has 2,000 health compared to a Hatchery's 1,500. The Lair's vision range (11) is far enough to see to the edge of its own creep, whereas a Hatchery's vision (10) can't quite see to the edge, allowing enemy Spine Crawlers to be placed in that narrow blind spot. The Lair unlocks many useful tech buildings and upgrades and is a key building in the Zerg Tech Tree.
Once an Infestation Pit is complete, a Lair can be further upgraded to a Hive.
