1. Heroes Nazeebo Works Well With

In this section, we will look at Heroes that work particularly well with Nazeebo.

1.1. E.T.C.

E.T.C. Portrait E.T.C. is a powerful Tank that is able to peel any aggressors away from you. E.T.C. can use Powerslide Icon Powerslide and Mosh Pit Icon Mosh Pit on enemies trapped in Zombie Wall Icon Zombie Wall, allowing you to use easily land the rest of your abilities on the immobile targets, including Gargantuan Icon Gargantuan's Stomp.

1.2. Malfurion

Malfurion Portrait Malfurion is the perfect Support for Nazeebo. He is able to heal you with Regrowth Icon Regrowth and Tranquility Icon Tranquility, and restore your Mana with Innervate Icon Innervate, which synergises very well with Death Ritual Icon Death Ritual. Malfurion can also use Entangling Roots Icon Entangling Roots in the centre of Zombie Wall Icon Zombie Wall, guaranteeing that any enemies within will be rooted.

1.3. Uther

Uther Portrait Uther is able to lock down targets with Hammer of Justice Icon Hammer of Justice and Divine Storm Icon Divine Storm, allowing you to follow up with your damage. Uther can also use Holy Light Icon Holy Light, Holy Radiance Icon Holy Radiance, Cleanse Icon Cleanse, and Divine Shield Icon Divine Shield to keep you alive if you are prioritised by enemy Assassins. Uther's versatility and ability to adapt to the current situation are what makes him such a powerful ally.

2. Heroes Nazeebo Is Countered By

In this section, we will look at Heroes that counter Nazeebo particularly well.

2.1. Jaina

Jaina Portrait Jaina, like Nova, can deal a massive amount of burst damage, killing you instantly. If you do manage to survive her combo, Frostbite Icon Frostbite and Summon Water Elemental Icon Summon Water Elemental will permanently slow you, allowing her or her allies to finish you off.

2.1.1. How To Play Against Jaina

Jaina's biggest weakness is her short range and low mobility; she must put herself at risk in order to deal damage. However, Jaina will usually flank her opponents, taking them by surprise when they least expect it. Always be aware of Jaina's whereabouts. Be wary of bushes, other areas that you lack vision, and choke-points. Additionally, attempt to stay just out of range of Cone of Cold Icon Cone of Cold, as it is her key ability to set up and deal additional damage. Ice Block Icon Ice Block is generally a fantastic choice versus Jaina, as it can negate all of her damage.

2.2. Nova

Nova Portrait Nova deals an extremely high amount of damage and it is extremely difficult for you to reveal her with your abilities. Nova is able to kill you from max health if she is ahead in Levels, so you should always try to be aware of her presence.

2.2.1. How To Play Against Nova

Although Nova will be able to deal damage equal to the majority of your life, she cannot kill you in one rotation of her abilities, unless has a significant Level lead and hits you with Precision Strike Icon Precision Strike or Triple Tap Icon Triple Tap, both of which can be avoided. That being said, losing almost all of your health will force you out of a team fight, unless you have a healer. If Nova is in the game, always keep an eye out for the shimmer of her Permanent Cloak. However, Nova has extremely low mobility and has no way of escaping Zombie Wall Icon Zombie Wall, so if you trap her within the ring and your team is nearby, she will almost always be a free kill. Ice Block Icon Ice Block is generally a fantastic choice versus Nova, as it can negate all of her damage.

2.3. Stitches

Stitches Portrait Stitches will force you out of position via his Hook Icon Hook, allowing his team to easily follow up and kill you. If you get hit by Hook, you will most likely die.

2.3.1. How To Play Against Stitches

Dealing with Stitches is fairly straightforward: do not get hit by Hook Icon Hook. If you are able to do that, you should have no problem with Stitches. However, the same cannot be said for your team. Be vocal about Stitches' whereabouts, and always keep in mind his ability to use Hook over walls. Occasionally, Stitches will have Gorge Icon Gorge, which will basically guarantee your death if you are hooked. However, if Stitches has Gorge, you still need to be aware of him, even if his Hook is on cooldown. He can eat you and then move back to his team, where you are very likely to die. You can use Zombie Wall Icon Zombie Wall to block Hook if needed, but you should only attempt to do so as a last resort.
