Abathur, the Evolution Master, is a melee Support Hero from the StarCraft universe. Abathur, the Evolution Master of Kerrigan's Swarm, works ceaselessly to improve the Zerg from the genetic level up.

Abathur is a unique Hero who can manipulate the battle from anywhere on the map. In doing so, he can help his team secure big advantages and shape the flow of battle.

Background[]

StarCraft This section concerns content exclusive to the StarCraft universe.

From their conception, the Zerg have been driven to pursue the perfection of their race through merciless, predatory evolution. If the Overmind has been the force behind this directive, the being known as Abathur was born as the instrument of its will. As much as a hive creature can, Abathur sees itself as personally responsible for the continuation of the Zerg. It undertakes each experiment as though the survival of the species depended on it alone, and tolerates no evolutionary backstep. Abathur will push the Swarm forward... and change it utterly in the attempt.

Abathur is an old organism, long serving as an “evolution master” – a guiding hand spinning the strands of Zerg DNA into mutations of existing Zerg and entirely new strains. Left to its own devices, Abathur’s approach to evolving the Zerg Swarm is unorthodox: consuming living tissue, and dissolving it into genetic components able to be quickly reassembled. It was Abathur who designed the Queen of Blades, Sarah Kerrigan, as a deadly psionic agent of the Swarm.

Abathur’s methods are far from the only means of evolving the Swarm, but the creature has refined them over the years following the death of the original Zerg Overmind. During its time on Char, the detached, meticulous Abathur modified any Zerg it stumbled across, and grew fixated on diversifying the Swarm in the service of the new Queen of the Zerg, Kerrigan.

During the Second Great War, Abathur once again aided Kerrigan after her deinfestation by a Xel'Naga artifact, perfecting her Swarm as she rebuilt it for a final confrontation with her nemesis, the Terran Dominion emperor Arcturus Mengsk, and continuing to serve her for the following years.

After Kerrigan's ascension to Xel'Naga, Broodmother Zagara was given control of the Swarm, and had Abathur use Xel'Naga essence gifted by Kerrigan to help regrow life in the sector as a means to negotiate peace in the war's aftermath. This however enraged Abathur, who saw the creatures they were creating as non-Zerg, and saw peace as contradictory to the Swarm's purpose. Creating his own breed of Zerg imbued with Xel'Naga essence, Abathur staged an silent uprising against Zagara during a peace talk with the Dominion and Daelaam with the hope of igniting hostilities between the three races and destroying the adostra, the Xel'Naga creatures Abathur saw as an abomination. However, a survey team sent to the surface uncovered Abathur's plot and stopped his coup, and Zagara mutilated Abathur, keeping him alive as she still had use for him, but imprisoning him.

Gameplay[]

Abathur plays differently from every other Hero in the game. With extremely low health and negligible Basic Attack damage, he needs to avoid direct confrontations with enemy Heroes. He instead applies pressure to the map through use of his global Abilities, and participates in team fights by empowering his allies with Symbiote. Abathur requires your team to play differently than normal, and you will have the most success when your teammates understand this.

Abathur's biggest strength is being able to contest map objectives while soaking experience. This is done by moving Abathur within range of Minions and then using Symbiote to assist your team. This creates an experience advantage over the enemy team. According to the former World Champion Fan Yang: "Most Abathur players will not utilize their body very well and just sit somewhere safe, but they're not actually soaking any experience. Always be aware of where the body is and make sure it's in a useful place where you can soak."[1] Additionally, Locusts will passively push the lane you are closest to. They have a constant influence on a lane's balance. It is ideal to place yourself near an empty lane when possible, in order to create static lane pressure that will force an enemy to rotate to you. If the enemy team has one of their Heroes soak a lane to try to catch up, then your team is at a significant advantage in any team fight that occurs during that time. Abathur's win condition is to be more places at once than his enemy, and overwhelm the other team with a constant stream of subtle pressure. Abathur is very strong on large maps that feature frequent objective spawns, which allow him to be somewhat ignored for some of the match. These maps allow him to either soak an advantage, or force the enemy team to split. His strength, however, is also his weakness. Abathur may get comparatively less value on small maps that feature fewer lanes, team fights near lanes, or objectives that do not require immediate rotations.

Symbiote defines Abathur as a Hero. By creating a direct link between him and any allied Hero, Minion, or Structure, Symbiote allows Abathur to soak or assist allied targets in a global manner. Symbiote is often refered to as "Aba hat" or simply "hat" due to its appearance. While Symbiote is active, you will have access to three additional Abilities that will originate from or benefit the hosted target: Stab, Spike Burst, and Carapace. While Symbiote is active, you soak all nearby XP. It can be used on Heroes, Mercenaries, Minions or Summons, but not Elite Mercenaries (like Bosses), Vehicles or Monsters like Dragon Knight or Punishers. During team fights, Symbiote should almost exclusively be placed on your frontline melee Heroes. Stab and Spike Burst have relatively short ranges, and Melee Heroes will naturally position so that you can use them effectively.

Strengths[]

  • Can soak multiple lanes at once, creating an XP lead.
  • Excellent synergy with specific Heroes like Illidan, Tracer or the Butcher.
  • One of the best split-pushing Heroes in the game.
  • Can teleport anywhere on the map (provided there is vision) using Deep Tunnel.
  • Toxic Nest is excellent at spotting and dismounting enemies attempting to gank allies or sneak objectives.

Weaknesses[]

  • Weak early game.
  • Body is extremely vulnerable if found.
  • Requires very good multitasking and map awareness.
  • Team must adapt to Abathur's unique gameplay style in order to succeed.
  • Viability is very dependent on the map and team compositions.

  • The target of Ultimate Evolution must be a real Hero; other Heroic Targets, like Heroic Pets and Vehicles, cannot be cloned.
  • Upon successfully casting Ultimate Evolution, Abathur is removed from the map and put in Stasis for its duration, removing negative status effects and making him immune to damage.
  • Abathur returns to the same location where he cast Ultimate Evolution once it ends. This location is visible to all players as a small puddle while Ultimate Evolution is active.

Targeting: Direct control
Health: 100%
Damage: 120%
Attack speed: 100%
Attack range: 100%

  • Ultimate Evolution Clone is untalented and does not inherit any progress on baseline quests.
  • It is possible to complete baseline quests on the Clone, but any progress and rewards are reset for the next cast.
  • Clone does not gain Ability effects that are unlocked by reaching a certain level, such as Muradin's Storm Bolt pierce.
  • Clone can Mount, use the Healing Fountain and can benefit from, but not directly collect, Regeneration Globes.
  • The Clone can fake channeling Objectives, but it cannot complete the channel to capture the Objective.
  • The Clone's Summons, including Junkrat's traps and Probius's Warp Rifts, do not expire along with the Clone as it has expired or been destroyed. However, Misha and Samuro's Images exceptionally do expire.
  • There are some limitations and exceptions to cloning certain Heroes:
    - Deathwing cannot be cloned due to his Trait.
    - Cloning Cho'gall only grants access to Cho's Abilities.
    - Cloning a Viking only clones the specific Viking targeted, but it gains access to all Basic Abilities the Vikings have unlocked through Talents in that game.
    - D.Va's clone can only use the form she was cloned from. Pilot D.Va's Call Mech is disabled, and activating Self-Destruct in Mech mode immediately returns control to Abathur, leaving the exploding Mech on the Battleground. Additionally, if Ultimate Evolution expires during this time, the Mech will instantly explode as it does.
    - Kharazim's level 1 Talent is inherited, as it is his Trait.
    - Murky's Trait, Spawn Egg, is disabled.
    - Alexstrasza's and Ragnaros's Traits start on full cooldown every time they are copied, making it impossible to use Molten Core and Dragonqueen during the clone's lifetime.
    - The effects of Jaina's Frostbite, Malthael's Reaper's Mark, Murky's Slime, Stukov's Healing Pathogen and Weighted Pustule, Sylvanas's Banshee's Curse, Tassadar's Psionic Storm, and Zagara's Creep Tumor do not stack and are instead shared, benefitting both the clone and the cloned Hero regardless of who applied the effect.
    - Qhira's Blood Rage can stack up to 10 times if a Clone of her is active - if both have at least one Bleed stack on the same target, then they both get a number of stacks equal to double the sum of their real stacks placed on the target (capped at 10). However, only the unit who placed the first Bleed stack on the unit may activate Blood Rage on it. Additionally, after the Clone expires, the Bleed stacks do not, and both Qhira and Abathur may maintain and extend each other's Bleed stacks while at least one of them has a Bleed stack on the target.
    - Stukov's or his Clone's Bio-Kill Switch detonates all Viruses placed by either. However, only the units that have received a Virus from that specific Stukov can be affected by their Bio-Kill Switch.
    - Both Probius and his Ultimate Evolution Clone can fully interact with each other's Pylons and Warp Rifts.
  • The Clone grants no XP or Takedown credit on death.
  • The Clone's Summons do not benefit from this Ability's Spell Power bonus.

Trivia[]

  • Abathur first appeared in StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm (March 2013).
  • Abathur is voiced by Steve Blum.
  • Abathur was one of the 18 Heroes revealed at BlizzCon 2013.
  • Abathur has the lowest base Health pool in the game, with 712 health at level 1, and 1502 health at level 20.
  • Heart of the Swarm implied that Abathur was a huge worm-like creature players only ever saw the top of, which wasn't really viable in Heroes. The art team shortened him down so he could scoot around the battlefield.[2][3]
  • Players end up not actually looking at Abathur much while playing him (and the enemy sees him even less), so Blizzard made sure his skins modified his symbiotes and locusts as well as his model.[2][3]
  • The original inspiration behind Abathur was the Overmind with global powers and immobility. The kit evolved to be more mobile to add a dimension both to his strategic location and to give him more personality (he is rarely present on the map instead of never there), and Blizzard mapped/adjusted powers to Abathur instead.[4]
  • Every hero in the game has a separate set of lines for when they're cloned by Abathur's Ultimate Evolution heroic, save for Abathur himself.
  • Abathurs Toxic Next and Symbiote abilities were created for Heroes of the Storm, but were later brought to StarCraft II as part of his commander in the Co-op Missions mode.
  • Locusts are temporary zerg creatures that were introduced in Heart of the Swarm, and spawned from swarm hosts.
  • Abathur's Z ability, Deep Tunnel, was first usable by players with the Creeper strain of swarm hosts from Heart of the Swarm. Deep Tunnel first appeared as an ability of Kerrigan in Wings of Liberty, which she uses to escape fatal damage. Many of Abathur's units gain Deep Tunnel in Co-op Missions mode.
  • Abathur's Level 4 talent Adrenal Overload is a reference to an upgrade Abathur can give to zerglings in the Heart of the Swarm campaign.
  • Abathur is the last hero in the game with the Calldown MULE ability at Level 7. MULEs are a terran temporary mining and repair robot in StarCraft II.
  • Abathur's Level 20 talent Evolution Complete is a reference to the voice line that plays with a zerg player completes an upgrade.
