Larva (Legacy of the Void)
- This article covers the current multiplayer version of this unit. For another version see Larva (Wings of Liberty and Heart of the Swarm).
The Larva is the base unit for Zerg. It can morph into one of the following:
Despite having only 25 hit points, Larvae are extremely durable with their 10 armor preventing large amounts of damage. Apart from being automatically generated, Larvae can also be created from the Queen's Spawn Larva ability. This creates 3 Larvae after a duration of 29 seconds. Larvae cannot be directly controlled and will die if they are not on the Creep. There can be a maximum of 19 Larva on one Hatchery. Additional Larvae produced at that Hatchery instantly die.
Larvae naturally spawn from a Hatchery, Lair, or Hive at a rate of 1 Larva every 11 seconds. Once a Zerg production building reaches 3 Larvae, the natural Larva timer is suspended. Once that Zerg building falls under 3 active Larvae, the timer is resumed. All Larvae, including those introduced via Spawn Larva, count towards this cap.
