Distortion Beam: Tassadar's Basic Attack is a beam that slows enemy units by 20%.

An Executor without equal, Tassadar has fought tirelessly to purify the Koprulu sector of the zerg infestation. Only now, after learning to wield the shadowy powers of the void, is Tassadar finally ready to face the Overmind and its all-consuming Swarm.


Tassadar fills the role of a Ranged Support in Heroes of the Storm. Among his duties in the field is to grant a temporary shield to an ally, detect nearby enemies, and manipulate the battleground for his team.

The description offered in-game sets Tassadar as Very Hard to play.

I have used Tassadar in a couple different ways. Either I stick around with other players to help them mitigate damage taken, give my allies a larger view range of where the enemy is, or I can instead focus on killing mercenaries while my team is keeping the enemy team distracted.



Tassadar is a protoss of the Templar caste who oversaw and protected the lesser races, or executed them when required or commanded to do so.

His fascination for the Terran race was absolute, even leading him to disobey extreme orders from Aldaris and the protoss conclave.

Tassadar set flame to planet Mar Sara in order to purify it from the zerg infestation.

After desobeying a direct order from the conclave, Tassadar went rogue and befriended ex-Marshal Jim Raynor and the dark templar Zeratul.

Although, the dark templar were perceived as heretics by the templars, Tassadar listened to Zeratul's side of the story, and even learned the way of the dark templar.

Using his new found hybrid philosophies of both sides of the templar, Tassadar sacrificed by concentrating all of his psionic might against the zerg Overmind.

Tassadar claimed he hasn't tasted death nor will he, meaning he has trascended the mortal realm into a mysterious psionic or ethereal state -- communicating from the beyond.

Tassadar communicated with Zeratul at the site of the Overmind's demise in planet Aiur to reveal the Overmind's master plan and warned him of impending doom with the rise of the hybrids. That Kerrigan was the Overmind's way to prevent the coming oblivion to be caused by the dark voice: Amon. (as seen in StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty).

"Yes, Executor?"

"Your will."

"I have no time for games! Alright, but just one more match."

"And you thought orcs had large shoulderpads."

"I have never tasted death, and since I have no mouth, I do not expect to."

"We must call for aid! Executor, bring up the Reavers! What? What do you mean we don't have Reavers anymore? Then... send the Dragoons! (sigh) Then what do you suggest?"

"What's a Void Ray?"

"Videogames have advanced so much since Starcraft I, I can hardly even make out the pixels anymore."

"Once you go Dark Templar, you never go back"

"Thinking back, perhaps I should have purified Mar Sara."

"En Taro... Me"

"Here is my number. Khala me, baby."
