Description

The Conjurer packs a short-ranged jammer and a cloaking device for stealthy expansion and base maintenance.

Tactics and Strategy[edit]

The Conjurer is cloaked except while building, and also has a small jamming field, making it difficult to find. However, a Conjurer which is found by the enemy has no other defence (besides constructing a turret, which is likely to be too slow). Make sure that your Conjurers are hiding if enemy units are close.

Conjurers can be used to cheaply identify and spot enemy units while remaining cloaked, much to the benefit of your precision artillery units like Phantoms, Lances, and Impalers.
