Abathur is a Specialist hero from the StarCraft franchise. Abathur uses his high mobility to move quickly about the battlefield and infest his allies, allowing him to use his abilities from inside them while remaining safe. Though he's strong inside an ally, Abathur is weak alone and has very little ability to fight on his own.

Background Edit

Abathur, the Evolution Master of Kerrigan's Swarm, works ceaselessly to improve the zerg from the genetic level up. His hate for chaos and imperfection almost rivals his hatred of pronouns.

Development Edit

The inspiration for Abathur in the game came from the Overmind, what with the concept of there being an immobile hero with global powers.[1] He was chosen for inclusion because of the gameplay opportunities he offered, despite the lack of appearance in a cinematic.[2]

As of December 2014, the developers are looking to give Abathur another heroic ability.[3]

Removed TalentsEdit
