Ability Usage:

  • Corpse Spiders Icon Corpse Spiders are your main source of damage, throw them in the middle of the enemy team.
  • Zombie Wall Icon Zombie Wall should be used purely for its utility, use it sparingly.
  • Plague of Toads Icon Plague of Toads can be difficult to hit, use it on enemies coming towards you.
  • Gargantuan Icon Gargantuan allows you to stay mobile while dealing plenty of damage.
  • Ravenous Spirit Icon Ravenous Spirit can kill entire enemy teams if you can channel it uninterrupted.
  • Tag enemies with any damage to apply consistant poison damage, last hit minions to increase your health and Mana with Death Ritual Icon Death Ritual.

2. Introduction

Nazeebo is a low mobility Specialist, able to deal high sustained damage very safely and from a long range. Zombie Wall Icon Zombie Wall is a form of crowd control that is unique to Nazeebo. It can be used to isolate Heroes or split up the enemy team, especially when used in choke-points. Death Ritual Icon Death Ritual provides Nazeebo with a very large health pool, making him significantly more difficult to kill than other damage dealers.

3. Strengths

  • Extremely high sustained damage
  • Zombie Wall Icon Zombie Wall provides a unique form of crowd control
  • Able to deal damage safely and from a long range
  • Death Ritual Icon Death Ritual provides Nazeebo with more health than almost any other Specialist, Support, or Assassin
  • Very little Mana issues, except early game
  • Can easily capture the Ogre (easy) camp alone
  • Zombie Wall Icon Zombie Wall can be used to drain or soak Tower shots
  • Good at harassing enemies and interrupting the channelling of objectives on maps like Cursed Hollow and Blackheart's Bay

4. Weaknesses

  • Lacks any form of "hard" crowd control
  • Zero burst damage; requires at least one ally to have kill potential
  • Death Ritual Icon Death Ritual requires stacking to be effective
  • Lacks mobility

5. Role in the Current Meta

Nazeebo is able to safely deal very high sustained damage, making him a fantastic pick on maps that revolve around long, back and forth fighting over an objective, such as Battlefield of Eternity, Sky Temple, and Cursed Hollow. A well placed Zombie Wall Icon Zombie Wall is extremely powerful and will often win your team the fight. It is especially effective on maps with multiple choke-points. Nazeebo's ability to play safely stems from the fact that his abilities are mostly "cast and forget" in nature. Corpse Spiders Icon Corpse Spiders and Gargantuan Icon Gargantuan are mostly automated and Plague of Toads Icon Plague of Toads just needs to be cast in the general direction of the enemy. Only Zombie Wall requires precise accuracy and timing. The innate simplicity of Nazeebo's kit is beneficial, allowing him to give dangerous enemy Heroes, such as Kerrigan, The Butcher, and Jaina, a wide berth, while still contributing to a team fight.

While Nazeebo's playstyle is generally healthy for the team, it is important make sure that your team still has kill potential, through crowd control or burst damage. Without kill potential, the enemy team can simply out-heal your sustained damage with a sustained healer, like Malfurion. Therefore, it is generally unwise to pick Nazeebo if you lack Heroes like Jaina, Kael'thas, Zeratul, Nova, Valla, or The Butcher.
