Observers are the protoss' mobile detectors. Although observers are 'permanently' cloaked, protoss players must be more alert to enemy anti-cloak units; the observer's low health gives little time to escape attackers. Observers are cheap enough to have a handful accompany an attack force, especially against a target with many detectors.

AbilitiesEdit

This unit may detect cloaked and burrowed enemies.

Permanent Cloaking

This unit is permanently cloaked. They cannot be seen or directly attacked by enemy forces, unless they have detector support.
