Default Twilight Archon is the only Archon.

According to the article, you can make a Twilight Archon by fusing two High Templar, or two Dark Templar, or one of each.

So now we have a powerhouse of an Archon that will probably have similar abilities to a Dark Archon.

Simply awesome.

2 HT = Archon with more energy?
2 DT = Archon with more attack?
HT + DT = Middle of these?

According to sc1 it would be the other way around, high archons are combat while dark archons are spellcasters.

I think don't think it will matter which Templars you merge, the Archon will be the same

I think it will change the properties. Otherwise it wouldn't make much sense that all templars merging make the same type of archon.

In any case it seems like the Twilight Archon isn't a spell caster, just a heavy.

Sucks.

But I guess it'll make the Tassadar/Zeratul Archon "do-able".

It would make it far to hard to distinguish them if they all had different abilities, unless they all look different.

Default Re: Twilight Archon is the only Archon.

It seems really stupid that any mixture or High or Dark templar would result in the same Archon, EVEN IF the High and Dark Templars costed the same. But if they don't cost the same, then i say it's the most retarded thing in the world, because nobody will sacrifice the most expensive of the 2 templars.
I say a fusion of a Dark and High Templar would result on a being of incedible power, remember what Tassadar could do because it surpassed the Khala, by being able to use both, the "light" and dark powers.

Default Re: Twilight Archon is the only Archon.

I agree, the smart thing would be to add the hp of the 2 or something like add 3/4 of the hp so it wouldn't be too strong. But if there isn't a change between the fused then as I've said before, I agree, retarded...

Pour Countchocula86- Je suis triste aussi. C'est terrible.

Default Re: Twilight Archon is the only Archon.

Although having three archons may be a bit much, having only one doesn't give the Protoss enough credit to their psionic mastery. If the Twilight Archon is composed of light and dark energies, how can you explain making one out of ONLY high templar or ONLY dark templar? Even if you used the excuse that each templar learned a little of the other side, that still wouldn't account for enough power to create an archon of light and dark energies. Unless the high templar and dark templar were removed altogether, and a templar unit that utitilized light and dark energies was formed, could I see a valid excuse for there being only one archon in the entire game, that uses light and dark energies.

"As a kid it was traumatic. It was one thing for your teacher to tell you that life was harsh for settlers headed West in the decades after the Louisiana Purchase. It was a lot more chilling to watch as your three children, "Boobs, Fart, and Winky" drowned in the Colorado river shortly before your wife died of diarrhea."
