Zerg Swarm Lord

Description Edit

The Swarm Lord is an Anti-Air specialist that casts clouds of parasites to damage clumps of enemy air units. Has a single target anti-air attack that shoots six times. Both the attack and the parasitic cloud damage are heavily affected by armor. The Swarm Lord also has an anti-ground attack with a small range that deals area of effect damage, which is mainly useful against small melee units, such as Zerglings.
