Recently Karune introduced two new RTS Community Team members who will be very active in the Starcraft II forums: Avarius and Zhydaris.

Avarius responded a very good question concerning the Protoss Immortal. We do know that Terran Tanks activate the Immortal’s heavy-shield, but … Which Zerg units will activate the immortal’s heavy-shield? Do Immortals activate it during Psi-Storm or a Nuclear Strike? Here’s the answer. Let us know your feedback.

Avarius: A good amount of zerg units are affected by the immortal’s Hardened Shell. They are particularly effective against roaches, ultralisks, and spine crawlers. Also, Psionic Storm and Nuclear Strike do not appear to be affected by the Hardened Shell as the immortal I just nuked disintegrated gloriously.
