StarCraft® II

For thousands of years the Protoss have studied the nature of time and space, gaining insight into the universe’s greatest mysteries. Using psionic manufacturing processes, they created a robotic mind whose programming is built into the molecules of an advanced crystal lattice. The resulting device is able to manipulate matter and energy with incredible precision. Warp Prisms are used primarily to transport forces on the battlefield, but they can also be deployed into Phasing Mode so as to power nearby structures if necessary. When Warp Prisms are in this mode, they can temporarily replace destroyed Pylons or enable rapid expansion.

DATA MATRIX

By opening the containment field around its synthetic power source, the Warp Prism can supply energy to nearby Protoss settlements. It also emits a signal which allows a Warp Gate to quickly teleport warriors to its location. While phasing, the Warp Prism diverts all energy away from its systems, becoming completely stationary.
The hull of the Warp Prism is a conductive framework that can absorb most types of energy. It houses thousands of psionic micro-receptors, which channel the power of the Prism’s crystal core and project “wings” laced with psionic energies. These wings are incredibly resilient, and serve as the primary navigation sensors of the vessel. The Warp Prism, a seamless blend of robotics and psionics, outperforms its predecessor, the Shuttle, in every possible way.
The operating mind of the Warp Prism is an advanced calculation system embedded in the molecules of an intricate crystal lattice. It transcends the constraints of space-time, and exists within—and beyond—itself. This allows it to manipulate matter and energy, as well as process near-infinite amounts of data faster than the speed of thought.

General Strategy

  • Armored transport craft that can ferry units across the battlefield.
  • Can shift to Phasing Mode to project an energy field like the Pylon, which provides power to Protoss structures. The energy field also allows for the warping in of units and construction of structures.
  • Can pick up and drop off units in both Transport and Phasing Mode.
  • Raid enemy bases efficiently by unloading troops in, switching to Phasing Mode and warping in reinforcements via your Warp Gates.

Upgrades

  • Gravitic Drive: Passive bonus to the Warp Prism’s movement speed.

Countermeasures

Terran VS
  • Build Missile Turrets around your mineral line to discourage drops.
  • Build a few Vikings to intercept Warp Prisms.
  • Use Marines, preferably with Stimpacks, to bring them down quickly.
Zerg VS
  • Build Spore Crawlers around your mineral line to discourage drops. Be sure to attack the enemy ships with your Queen as well.
  • Spawn Mutalisks; their flight speed will ensure the enemy will have a hard time getting away.
  • Use Hydralisks and research the Grooved Spines upgrade.
Protoss VS
  • Build Photon Cannons around your mineral line to discourage drops.
  • Use Stalkers and research Blink to more effectively give chase to invading Warp Prisms.
  • Deploy a few Phoenix fighters to eliminate the enemy transports.
