  • Ground

The adept is a core gateway unit with a ground-only ranged attack and normal movement speed. This unit utilizes its psionic transfer ability to teleport to nearby locations.

It is intended that the adept serve as a core unit option, taking on roles once held by the zealot and stalker, and in some cases, doing better. Its psionic transfer ability is distinct from the stalker's blink ability, in that blink is more focused on twitch-based micro, while psionic transfer is based on the timing and positioning of the teleport.[1] The adept can be controlled independently from the copy it generates.[2]

AbilitiesEdit

  • Psionic Transfer: Sends out a copy of the adept that is controlled independently but cannot attack or be attacked. After a fixed duration the adept will teleport to the location of the copy as it expires.[1]

DevelopmentEdit

The following section contains information from a previous version of StarCraft II which is no longer valid.

Concept art

The adept was a protoss unit in early builds of StarCraft II. It was a ranged attacker, but was cut during development for being too similar to the marine.[3]

NotesEdit

"Adept" is a protoss position in the race's decal list.
