StarCraft® II

For more than a thousand years, the Protoss of the Templar caste have defended their people, dedicating their long lives to the pursuit of martial perfection. Zealots are peerless warriors who have yet to ascend to the uppermost ranks of the Khala. Ever eager for advancement, they train for decades in hand-to-hand combat, tactics, pain tolerance, and martial discipline. Their formidable physiques are further enhanced by cybernetic implants and power suits. Zealots use their substantial psionic abilities to create blades of pure energy that serve as their primary melee weapons.

General Strategy

  • Light infantry unit that can attack ground targets.
  • This is the first military unit that Protoss can build; all you need is a Gateway.
  • Tough and hard-hitting, but expensive compared to other tier 1 units such as Marines.
  • Powerful combatants, their weakness is the time it takes them to reach their target. Susceptible to kiting as well.
  • Researching Charge will allow your Zealots to instantly close the gap to their target.
  • Can be warped into the battlefield quickly by means of a Warp Gate.
  • Increase their survivability to ranged attacks by having a Sentry with Guardian Shield.

Upgrades

  • Charge: Allows Zealots to automatically intercept nearby enemies, and is a passive increase to their movement speed.

Countermeasures

Terran VS
  • Reapers are very effective against Zealots due to their speed and damage.
  • Hellions excel against Zealots after you research the Infernal Pre-Igniter upgrade.
  • A mix of Marines and Marauders should do the job, but do not fight in the open.
Zerg VS
  • Roaches are a great counter to Zealots, especially if you research the movement speed upgrade.
  • Spawn an Infestor or two and cast Fungal Growth on the Zealots and use ranged units such as Hydralisks to pick them off.
Protoss VS
  • Build a force of Stalkers and kite the enemy Zealots.
  • Summon a few Sentries and fight the enemy at a spot where you could easily separate his troops with a well-placed Force Field.
  • Construct a few Colossi.
