I know that units being warped in can be attacked as soon as their visage begins to appear on the screen. Is this visage cloaked for dark templars?

    @tzenes, I expect you're already busy creating an answer including pictures. – alexanderpas Nov 29 '10 at 20:46
  • @tzenes at first I thought you were being facetious about taking screen shots of undetected cloaked units from the opponents perspective. Of course, @Raven pulled through with what looks like a custom map – Matt Nov 29 '10 at 22:34
  • to be fair, I tried to do it via. a replay of a custom match against a computer player, but the AI liked photocannons too much. – Raven Dreamer Nov 29 '10 at 23:15
  • I trivially knew the answer, but I wanted a better answer which had pictures, and since I wasn't at my home computer I put the comment so someone else would put the picture up. Its easy for things like this to be misreported on wiki's (Infestor Range being a prime example) and its best if we have first party information. – tzenes Nov 30 '10 at 2:41

Resorath and the wiki are correct; Dark Templar indeed are cloaked while warping in.

In this screenshot, the two sentries ignore the Dark Templar during it's warp in: alt text

But once we add a Raven to the mix, the sentries switch their focus to the templar soon after the warp in initiates: alt text

  • Good screens, dark templars warping in via a warp prism into the back of your base is pretty annoying, especially since a deployed warp prism is still considered "flying". – Resorath Nov 29 '10 at 21:30

According to this they cloak while warping in.
