The zerg hydralisk den bears only a passing resemblance to the nests of the once peaceful slothien that the hydralisks evolved from. Containing hydralisk genetics, the structure allows larvae to morph into hydralisks.[1]

The hydralisk den appears in StarCraft II and unlocks the hydralisk. Unlike in the original StarCraft, the Lurker Aspect can no longer be researched here as it no longer exists.

DevelopmentEdit

The following section contains information from a previous version of StarCraft II which is no longer valid.

The hydralisk den was a straightforward revamp of the den from the previous game. Nothing significant happened after the initial creation aside from a texture pass and the addition of more little spikes to match the other buildings.[2]

The hydralisk den could transform into a deep warren/lurker den, enabling hydralisks to transform into lurkers.[3][4]
