The guide focuses on the Spider build. The Toad build is just in the tl;dr.

Hey, I like the Zeebro guide but I was wondering whether other Level 17 talents are worth a mention. Dead Rush seems to be quite popular and remarkably effective, and it would be nice to have some insight into why that is.

 

Cheers!

Being an experienced Nazeebo player myself I do not like Dead Rush at all. The zombies can be kited / killed very easily. 

 

Furthermore, the other talents are just too good to be ignored. Thing of the Deep allows Nazeebo to poke from a safer distance and allows him to reach more targets. Ice Block can be a great choice especially in more competitive play. 

 

Even Toads of Hugeness in better, as it is the core talent of the Toad Build that is used by many Korean players and is quite strong in my opinion.

You basically just get Toads at Levels 7 and 13. They do a lot of damage but can be difficult to land.

What sort of instances is it safe to use basic attacks in team fights with Naz? The added damage seems fairly powerful to me, but I could be wrong.

Try to Basic Attack whenever you can do so without overextending. Nazeebo's Basic Attacks have a generous range, so in most matchups you should be able to use them quite often. If the enemy composition makes it difficult to Basic Attack safely, it could be a good game to take Thing of the Deep. smile.png

There isn't much more I can say, I'm sorry - I'm looking at our various notes and it has been recorded that the guide does need attention, but beyond that there is nothing that I can do. The most I can do is apologise and just ask for everyone's patience as we get the guide updated once again.

That is strange since Kendric is usually on point with those. I'll nudge him, or somethin'.

If you need a quick build, try something like this: http://www.heroesfire.com/hots/talent-calculator/nazeebo#kdib

Some of the talents (level 4, 13) are variable depending on what you're facing. This build is particularly good at killing bosses and taking buildings down, so see to that if you can.

I have a question. Why i dont see spider build here? Thats his kinda single target burst and can do alot of dmg to single target. It can usualy kill tanks in duration of wall of zombies(not saying you should focus that). 5 spiders each doing 100+ dmg per hit + Ravenous spirit is kinda 1000 dps just from those 2 skills. Anyway was just wondering...

I would assume because the Zombie build essentially performs a similar function while doing so better.

Hey everyone! 

Today I started working on a long over-due update on the Nazeebo guide. Rest assured that the Witch Doctor will shine in a new outfit very soon! 

Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrraaaaaa!

Hey Kendric, I'd consider bumping Hexed Spiders down to either not recommended or situational, just because the other talents are a bit better. HP regen isn't too much of a problem unless you're trying to stay in lane, in which blood ritual is better, and the same can be said for mana regen. While Hexed Spiders does it better, it relies on you attacking a hero with it, when you could be using it on the wave to up your voodoo stacks faster. While it may help in team fights, nazeebo is much more vulnerable to being burst down then over-time damage, which is why I'd say big voodoo is more better in most situations, as mana becomes less of a problem faster and you'll get a high enough hp to compensate the regen, not to mention the likelihood of a support being around to provide the needed heals.

Thanks,

      A Nazeebo Main

Really nice guide!

When would you recommend each build? I think I saw in one of your videos that the Frog build was good against an enemy team with 2 tanks or something like that.

Thanks!

Personally, I like to go like this:

• Corpse Spiders Build: I say this build works well against teams with divers or low mobility Heroes, since they're fated to get eaten alive. It is very useful against heroes with low health, also. This is my favorite build, in general, due the absurd amount of self sustain it adds to Nazeebo with Hexed Crawlers and overall damage output.

• Plague of Toads Build: works pretty good against groups featuring many melee characters, specially divers. All in all, this build is mostly useful in maps that require a high focus on wave clear, such as Tomb of the Spider Queen and Braxis Holdout.

• Zombie Wall Build: also effective against melee characters, but mostly against characters with low mobility (Kael'thas, Chromie); meaning it's easier to trap them. However, it is nice to have at least one ally with a crowd control so the setup is easier to perform.

Generally, Nazeebo struggles a lot against opponents with high mobility, since all his abilities are skillshots. If you happen to face a team of high mobility Heroes, it is usually more useful to go for the Plague of Toads Build and focus on wave clear and destroying structures instead. But again, it's all relative to the map and your own team composition. Much like the guide mentioned, Nazeebo doesn't really offer enough damage in the current meta of sustained healing, meaning most of his slow damage can be easily negated.

As a side note, Auriel is a character that works amazingly well with Nazeebo, since he deals a good amount of sustained damage, which translates in a decent Energy generation for her (assuming Nazeebo receives Bestow Hope). And most importantly, Aueriel can actually stun opponents with her Detainment Strike if they're knocked back at a Zombie Wall. It is awesome!

Hey there guys. With the recent nerf to Nazeebo's Vile Infection talent of bringing up the requirement to 175 stacks, is it still the best talent on the level 20 choices? I feel like 150 was just right, but 175 means that you have to live in the lane and sacrifice team presence, or participate in teamfights, but not meet the 175 requirement in time.

What's your take on this?

I'd say it is still the best talent. The talent made the other talents relatively better, which means you will not be hindered by them as much as you would be before the nerf, but Vile InfectionVile Infection is still the best pick.

I definitely think it's the best one, especially with spiders build as your poke at lvl 20 once the quest is done will be insane. Yes the quest takes longer, so you send Naz to clear lane when threatened and you call out to your team to let you poison minions before they kill them. If anything, this change (wouldn't really call it a nerf since once it's done you still spike hugely) just made him less viable for that build on bigger battlegrounds

This bullet point under TL;DR Tips needs to be changed from 150 stacks to 175, otherwise great guide

"IMPORTANT: Poison Minions before killing them to increase your health and Mana with Voodoo Ritual IconVoodoo Ritual. We strongly recommend trying to reach 150 stacks before Level 20 in order to get the significant late game power spike from Vile Infection IconVile Infection. "

      Our thirteenth Heroes of the Storm Meta Tier list for the Alexstrasza patch of November is here!
      We present our thirteenth Heroes of the Storm Meta Tier List for the Alexstrasza patch of November 2017.
      Welcome to Icy Veins's Meta Tier List for the Alexstrasza patch. The goal if of this list is to try and detail game's current metagame state. The prime goal of such lists is to inform players regarding popular and trending team composition drafting strategies (i.e. the drafting metagame). Although tier listings are generally the product of balance, many factors come into play when discussing the relative perceived strengths of heroes, including player regions, maps, play style, skill level, and, of course, personal perception. As such, any tier list—including this very one—should never be interpreted as gospel, but rather, as a guide to better grasp what to expect with regards to typical drafting experiences. One useful application of such lists is to allow you know which heroes to look out for in terms of practice and counterplay, ultimately improving your knowledge of the game.
      Using the list
      As stated above, tier lists are easy to mistake for gospel. As new strategies are discovered and experimented with, so changes the perception of the relative strengths of each hero. Tier lists still prove to be useful as a snapshot of player expectations in terms of drafting. Although it is generally considered preferable to focus on high tier heroes (Prime and Core tiers), it is important to note that Heroes of the Storm's wild character and map designs make it so that any given hero's tier position is prone to fluctuate depending on the situation at hand.
      One classic example of such is that of Kerrigan on the Infernal Shrines map. Although we currently judge her to be a low-to-mid-tier hero, her drafting priority shoots up to first-pick or first-ban material on this specific map due to the nature of its objective. Certain heroes also synergise so well with each other that the sole fact of having the opportunity of drafting them together is generally enough to increase their potential. Tassadar and Tracer, for instance, are generally nightmarish to deal with for many. There are too many examples of these interactions to reasonably produce here, but we invite you to consult our guides to know exactly where and when each hero shines. The guides have been linked in the lists below for your convenience - just click any of the hero names to access them.
      A ↑ next to a hero's name means its tier list position has increased since the previous month whereas a ↓ means just the opposite. Additionally, a + or - sign indicates short-to-medium term predictions (which is to say, about a month) for tier increase(s) or decrease(s), respectively. These are often updated after significant balance patches and/or when clear trends are emerging.
      If you're newer to the game, also consider visiting our glossary for a comprehensive list of discrete Heroes of the Storm terms.
      Current map rotation
       
      Prime Tier
      Warrior Assassin Support Specialist Arthas Genji - - E.T.C. Greymane     Garrosh Malthael     Prime tier heroes are considered to be extremely strong in all situations, and show no obvious weakness. They are very often banned or picked right away, as they generally dictate the pace of most matches.
       
       
      Core Tier
      Warrior Assassin Support Specialist Anub'arak↓ Falstad Brightwing Azmodan Dehaka Kerrigan↑ Lúcio+ Nazeebo↓ Diablo Li-Ming Rehgar↑ Sylvanas- Sonya+ Valla Tassadar↓-   Stitches Zeratul     Varian (Tank) Zul'jin↑     Core tier heroes are strong in a wide variety of situations and have few counter-picking possibility. They should form the core of your team, and be picked after Prime Tier heroes have been distributed.
       
      Viable Tier
      Warrior Assassin Support Specialist Artanis Alarak Ana Abathur D.Va Cassia Auriel Murky Johanna Chromie Kharazim Probius Leoric Gul'dan Li Li Zagara Muradin+ Illidan Lt. Morales↓ Xul↓- Zarya Kael'thas Malfurion↓     Kel'Thuzad Stukov↓     Jaina↓ Tyrande     Lunara Uther↓     Ragnaros       Samuro↑       The Butcher       Tracer     Viable tier heroes are generally well-rounded that have either fallen out of favour, or, inversely, are on the rise in popularity, due to the current Prime tier contenders.
       
      Niche Tier
      Warrior Assassin Support Specialist Chen Cho'gall Alexstrasza (new)- Gazlowe Cho'gall Junkrat   Medivh Rexxar Nova   Sgt. Hammer Tyrael Raynor       Thrall       Tychus       Valeera       Varian (Damage)     Niche tier heroes have niche application on certain maps or for certain team compositions. They are generally picked to "round out" your team composition when your team composition is missing out on key components, such as a "jungler" (mercenary camps), a solo laner, or solid waveclear.
       
      Bottom Tier
      The Lost Vikings Bottom tier Heroes are deemed to be either considerably weaker than the majority of other Heroes, or much more challenging to play properly. Although they may situationally shine, these Heroes are generally avoided by most players.
       
      Metagame assessment
      Alexstrasza. She didn't feel great at all back at BlizzCon, and the following PTR saw no changes to her. I expected poor performance, but nothing quite as low as 41%. Where do I even begin? Dragonqueen is obviously powerful, but is gated behind a ridiculously long cooldown. Outside of Dragonqueen, she's just... really weak. I don't quite understand the concept behind Gift of Life, but it screams double healer to me, which is unfortunate for multiple reasons I won't elaborate on. Abundance heals for too little for how difficult it is to use, on top of putting a big obvious marks on where to shoot. I'm putting her as Niche(-) for now because I suspect most players don't play her all too well, but she's in dire need of buffs, and that was quite obvious 2 weeks ago.
      Anub'arak is losing some of his former popularity, though no nerfs were had for a few months. Although I can't explain exactly why, I suspect that tanks with more raw survivability and a bit more sustained damage potential are currently being prioritized. He's still not bad at all, especially with Cocoon to counter Genji's Dragonblade and Malthael's Tormented Souls. Give Locust Swarm a try if there are no valuable heroic abilities for you to lock down.
      Kerrigan has emerged as this month (and last month's) sleeper for ripping hero league wins away, and I suspect my shedding some light over her success may frustrate those whom have been exploiting her relative unpopularity to . Why is she doing so well, though? Assimilation's design makes it particularly difficult for double support teams to take her out. In essence, this trait gains more value the longer Kerrigan survives, which then translates into more damage, which then translates into more survivability... and so on.
      Zul'jin's most recent rework was certainly one of the most successful reworks to date. Although he wasn't bad to begin with, most of the changes ended up being buffs, contrary to what some players were claiming. To add to this, the meta is quite favourable to him; stacking up on Berserker (and keeping its effect active for the damage bonus) is pretty safe with more than one healer around. His trait also tends to favour longer fights, due to the stacking mechanic, allowing him to snowball. Guillotine is even starting to see more play, with Taz'dingo! feeling less and less necessary to deal with burst.
      Rehgar's changes, which I had mistakenly labeled as nerfs, ended up being positive. Turns out, area of effect healing is trendy. Now, why might Rehgar be doing so well? Simply put, versatility. With healers becoming more and more (over)specialized, this is certainly a respectable thing to have. He brings bits of waveclear, mercenary clearing, dueling, and of course, healing to the table. Lightning Bond is great for single-target damage as well, making Rehgar particularly strong on Battlefield of Eternity, and just as a general single-target damage dealer.
      Tassadar is also falling off quite dramatically. I think I may have overestimated just how unpopular he was in last month's list, but today's values are quite clear. As with Anub'arak, I'm not quite sure what happened, but most of the common Tassadar tag teams (besides Tracer, but she's a strange case) are below 50% winrate. Since the viability of such edge support heroes depend on the strength of what they support, I suppose we shouldn't be all that surprised for this. Force Wall could probably surprise quite a few opponents, as it is strangely unpopular nowadays.
      Nazeebo's October nerfs have struck home, although the current metagame state isn't helping either; chip damage isn't all that effective when it simply gets healed off. He still remains strong if you plan on taking it to the late game, but is nowhere near to being first-pick worthy.
      Samuro has always been in a strange place. Though the upcoming stealth changes are going to be extremely positive for him (BlizzCon spoilers!), I feel like his ability to split push, deal with mercenary camps extremely quickly, and single-out healers (or, anyone isolated, really) make him a sleeper. He's at his worse when Mirror Image get taken out quickly, but none of the top tier contenders are particularly heavy on area of effect damage. His winrate is currently the highest of the entire cast, yet his popularity is in the bottom 20. I suppose he requires quite a bit of decision making skills to make good use of. He's not all that flashy either, which may be contributing to his lack of popularity. Give him a try.
      Jaina is doing well, though feels a bit out of meta right now, as with most other casters. I suspect that nerfs to any of the Prime tier heroes will see her surge right back up. Generally seen as a 4th or 5th pick.
      Lt. Morales, Malfurion, Stukov, and Uther all feel extremely balanced right now, each hovering between healthy 49 and 50% winrates. They all have their niches (Morales on Braxis, for instance), and are generally picked as second healers when the Core tier contenders have been distributed.
      Xul, whom I may have overhyped recently, lost Blackheart's Bay and Garden of Terror, some of his favourite maps. To add to this, the tanks who tend to punish him the most are right at the top of the food chain. This is on top of August's pretty heavy-handed nerfs. Just to add insult to injury, he's just not all that great against double support either. Xul is now part of the bottom 10 and will probably stay there for a while.
