Kerrigan: Move to the high ground, and assault their barricade from above.

Siege Tank: Something just busted outta the ground!

Dominion Firebat: Aw, hell no! Retreat!

Abathur: Dominion barricade destroyed.

Kerrigan: I can control them. But I can’t morph more.

Abathur: Key transformation sequence missing. Requires lurker den. Secure nearby den. Return essence to swarm control.

Kerrigan: The lurker den isn’t far. Move out. The feral zerg have sensed us! Burrow, quickly!

Abathur: Lurker: attacks many foes while burrowed. Effective against light enemies.

Kerrigan: More feral zerg. Burrow quickly, and attack!
