- High Templar(src)

The high templar in StarCraft II is a psi caster with no attack. It retains the psionic storm ability, which must be researched at the templar archives.

OverviewEdit

High templar are strong against marines, sentries, stalkers, and hydralisks, and weak against ghosts, zealots, colossi, and roaches. In multiplayer, Wings of Liberty and Heart of the Swarm, high templar have no standard attack, but in all other campaigns and Co-op Missions they gain a standard attack which targets ground units.

AbilitiesEdit

Psionic Storm deals 80 damage in the target area in small packets over time, and hits both air and ground units. It injures friendly units caught in the area of effect of 1.5.[1]

Psionic storm is smartcast.

Psionic Storm is subject to a short delay before striking; during this brief period there is a visual indicator for where it will strike.

Legacy of the VoidEdit

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.
