Game Unit Edit
High templar are strong against
marines, sentries, stalkers, and hydralisks, and weak against ghosts, zealots, colossi, and roaches. In multiplayer and the and Wings of Liberty campaigns, high templar have no standard attack, but in all other campaigns and Heart of the Swarm Co-op Missions they gain a standard attack which targets ground units.
high templar drains all energy from a target unit, dealing damage equal to the energy drained.

+1 armor to shields per level.
Wings of Liberty Campaign Edit
High templar are usable in the
protoss mini-campaign, available during and after the " StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty A Sinister Turn" mission.
Legacy of the Void Campaign Edit
In the single-player campaign, the high templar is one of three psionic warriors the player may use, the others being the
dark archon and the ascendant. In the campaign, the high templar's psionic storm does not damage allied units, only enemies, and they have the passive ability plasma surge, which causes psionic storm to restore shields to allied units in the area of effect. This makes the high templar more effective than ever, able to attack enemies and heal allies with the same ability. However, their prowess should be weighed against the ascendant, which has a powerful ability to restores its own energy and damaging abilities comparable to Psionic Storm. They now have a regular attack, "Psi Blast", which deals 9 damage per shot and has a range of 7.
Psionic storm restores 50 shields to friendly units in its area of effect over 4 seconds.
Co-op Missions Edit
Artanis is able to use high templar in Co-op Missions. When Artanis reaches Level 6, additional upgrades can be researched for them at the templar archives.
