Skins <StarCraft Alternations>

These are the Skins that are based upon this Subuniverse, reflecting alternate versions of our Heroes.

  • Swarm Abathur - Epic
    • Evolution is a process that's unending. Survival requires adaptation. Even Abathur, a master of manipulating evolution itself, is no exception to this cardinal rule of nature.
  • Highlord Alarak - Epic
    • The Highlord's armor serves as both ceremonial adornment and as a conduit of raw power. Adorned with blood shards and fueled by terrazine, it channels Alarak's fury directly into his blades.
  • Daelaam Artanis - Rare
    • The Khala is lost, and the war against Amon rages across the Koprulu Sector. Aboard the Spear of Adun, Artanis and his forces are the last hope against annihilation.
  • Hierarch Artanis - Rare
    • As Hierarch, Artanis strives for unity among his people. Drawing inspiration from the cultures of both Aiur and Shakuras, his ceremonial armor is a symbol of their combined strength.
  • Purifier Artanis - Epic
    • Shortly after reactivation, Artanis purged Aiur of the protoss in an act of open rebellion. Now the Hierarch of the Purifiers leads his people on a quest to cleanse the sector of all organic life.
  • Pack Leader Dehaka - Legendary
    • To the primal zerg, form and function are one. With each change comes greater strength, and thus survival. Few have undergone as much change as Dehaka... and he intends to keep it that way.
  • Goliath D.Va - Rare
    • Few mechs are as versatile as the goliath combat walker. Armed with the latest aftermarket upgrades, Corporal Song can call in a new walker from TACCOM whenever she gets the go-ahead.
  • L800 E.T.C. - Epic
    • Even in the far flung future of 2504, Level 800 Elite Tauren Chieftain is still "terran up the night."
  • Primal Queen Kerrigan - Epic
    • The primal zerg essences within Kerrigan cannot remain static for too long. With every kill, they incorporate their foe's strengths, becoming increasingly deadly... and spikey.
  • Templar Li-Ming - Epic
    • Li-Ming may be strong-willed, but the will of Templar Li-Ming is stronger.
  • First Lt. Morales - Epic
    • The UED outfits its best soldiers with the finest in experimental ordnance, and its medics are no exception. As such, Lt. Morales’s gear has been upgraded in accordance with her service record.
  • Maraudin' Muradin - Epic
    • Based in the Kel-Morian Combine, Three Hammer Securities employs the boldest and baddest mercenaries in the sector. Give them a call when you need to put someone in a world of hurt.
    • Special Mount: Rocket Jump Jets
  • Grunty Murky - Epic
    • Alright, fess up... Who put the murloc in that power armor? Sammy? We talked about this... Guys, this is real cute and all, but how the heck are we supposed to get him out of there?
  • Elite Agent Nova - Epic
    • The Crius Stealthsuit was the ultimate hostile environment suit developed by the Terran Dominion for its ghost. Unfortunately, due to its immense cost, few were ever deployed.
  • Prime Probius - Rare
    • Though the probe's basic design has remained unchanged for many cycles, inventive phase-smiths are always experimenting with ways to improve its operational efficiency.
  • Terran Probius - Rare
    • Despite loud opposition from the SCV pilot's union, the Dominion Engineering Corps continues its attempts to replicate the technology utilized by the protoss in their construction of probes.
  • Commander Raynor - Epic
    • Some days it's good to get out of the CMC Powered Combat Suit and into something a bit more comfortable.
  • Special Ordnance Raynor - Rare
    • A small yellow note stuck to the inside says, "Hey, cowboy. Thought that suit of yours could use an upgrade or two, you can thank me later. -Swann"
  • Stars and Stripes Raynor - Rare
    • While the United States Space Force successfully rescued their colonists from the Koprulu sector, Colonel James Raynor worried those monsters might find their way to Earth.
  • Master Sgt. Hammer - Rare
    • With as many kills as she'd racked up on the battlegrounds of the Nexus, Sgt. Hammer deserved her promotion to Master Sergeant... even if she promoted herself.
  • Executor Tassadar - Legendary
    • Executors rarely command from the field of battle, but their Regalia is fitted with meticulously crafted khaydarin crystals to amplify their psionic powers should the need arise.
  • Ghost Tracer - Epic
    • Most who undergo training at the Ghost Academy come out of it with a grim outlook on life. The fact that Tracer didn't is a testament to her mental and emotional fortitude.
  • Custom Rig Tychus - Rare
    • Sure, that suit may be his prison... But you and I both know that's not going to stop him from sprucing the thing up... Now, is it?
  • Infested Tychus - Legendary
    • Maybe keeping that visor open on Char wasn't the best idea...
  • Prisoner Tychus - Rare
    • They say no one has ever escaped from New Folsom Prison. Wasn't too long ago that they were still right.
  • Medic Uther - Legendary
    • It is said any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic. Medical Corps officer Uther Lightbringer tends to agree.
  • Insectoid Zagara - Legendary
    • Dr. Wright hypothesized only insects would survive in the apocalypse. Years later, as the mutated hivemother's pincers closed around his neck, he realized how right he was.
  • Overqueen Zagara - Epic
    • As his Queen ordered, Abathur augmented Zagara, allowing her more flexible thinking and a stronger control over her brood... but there's always room for more improvement.
  • Dark Prelate Zeratul - Epic
    • Upon selection, each Dark Prelate is presented with a unique armor reflecting their beliefs and personality. Zeratul rarely dons the Shadow's Embrace, as he prefers less formal attire.
  • Executor Zeratul - Rare
    • In his final moments, Zeratul made the ultimate sacrifice to defeat the Overmind and secure victory over the zerg. Inspired by his example, the Templar and Dark Templar are united once more.
  • High Templar Zeratul - Epic
    • Despite Judicator Raszagal's warning that only heresy comes from contact with the Dark Ones, Praetor Zeratul believes that the young Prelate "Tassadar" may be the key to Aiur's salvation.
  • Zerg Hunter Zeratul - Rare
    • The Zer'atai clan of Dark Templar are renowned hunters. For nearly a millennium, they have wandered Shakuras, fashioning intricate armors from the very bones of their prey.
