"Experience has taught the protoss that when we do not fight together, we die alone. We shall not see defeat this day. For we stand as one. Our differences will not divide us, but make us stronger. Together, we will defend the Nexus with honor, and earn our glory. I am Hierarch Artanis, leader of all protoss. And in unity, there is strength."

- Artanis(src)

Artanis is a warrior hero from StarCraft.[1] Individuals who purchase (or pre-order) Legacy of the Void will gain free access to him in Heroes of the Storm.[2]


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.[3]

As early as 2011 Artanis was considered as a playable hero in Heroes of the Storm.[4] Originally, Fenix was going to be the first StarCraft warrior hero, but as Fenix was put on the backburner, Artanis received the position.[5]

As of BlizzCon 2015, the development team is looking to give Artanis a death animation more fitting of his lore.[6]
