Unlisted Changes[edit | edit source]

  • As a result of switching dependencies from Wings of Liberty Campaign to Heart of the Swarm Campaign, many units had unintentional reductions or increases in strength. For example, Banelings lost their +15 damage to light, Thors were switched from a slower, harder hitting attack, to a faster, weaker hitting attack, and Lurkers were significantly strengthened in offensive power.
