Ghosts vs Spectres. What are the bonuses?

#1RenamonFOXPosted 7/29/2010 12:47:45 AM
My first time through, I grabbed the Spectres, and they were freakin' awesome.
Their upgrades turn them into Dark Templars with Rifles and Yamato cannons.

I'm not sure what the ghost abilities are, but I'd like to ask before I pick them on my second run through, as I had so much fun with the spectres, I'm reluctant to give them up again.

ghosts have less damage, more hp, snipe and emp

I don't know if they have diferent upgrades

I don't know about the purchased abilities, but the base abilities are sniping, (1 shot kill humanoid targets) and mind control that links something to her but you can control both specifically. I'm sure the bonus abilities are just as cool

so basically specters = DT and ghost = HTnow.

Yeah, I was in on the beta. I know what the ghosts have for activated abilities. I was wondering what their armory upgrades were.

It's going to be hard to touch permanent cloak and psi blast though. More than once I've used a group of spectres to take out a boss.

Spectres have an armoury upgrade that basically kills anything which is quite fun to use. But you need to be quite good at the old micro because it decloaks you.

Holy...

Okay, we'll try this again.

What are the armory upgrades for the Ghost unit?

I've used spectres. I like them. I don't want to get ghosts and regret it.
And the spectre attack ability does not decloak you. I've used it religiously and not had the problem of suddenly getting smacked upside the face.

The first Ghost upgrade gives them +2 range and +3 sight radius for 85.000
The second upgrade makes cloak no longer cost energy for 125.000

Both the ghost and the spectre can have infinite cloak once upgraded. In my opinion the spectre is far supperior. *SPOILER* and incase anyone is wondering, Nova lies Spectre's do not become psycopathic killers.

What are the Spectre Ability and upgrades? What makes them better than Ghosts?
