Artanis – unstoppable death machine
Hierarch Artanis is an indomitable warrior who seeks to unify his beleaguered people. As a renowned Templar with centuries of experience, Artanis combines martial prowess and tactical acumen—striking swiftly with his psi-blades, taking the brunt of enemy assaults with his shields, or calling upon his flagship, the Spear of Adun, to turn his foes into dust. He’ll let nothing stand in his way to restore the glory of the protoss.
Warriors withstand large amounts of punishment through self-healing or damage reduction abilities while retaining moderate offensive capability. They disrupt the enemy team with some roots, stuns and pulls, and lead the charge during team battles.
