Heroes of the Storm Gazlowe Build Guide

Gazlowe is a Bruiser Hero from the Warcraft universe. He does an excellent job of controlling the area around him, creating chaos and preventing the enemy team from capturing a point or activating an object. He is also very good for split pushing lanes, but picking up Mercenary Camps is easy for him. The lack of mana allows him to stay on the lane for a long time. However, due to its turrets that need to be positioned ahead of time, it will take time to get ready for a fight. This also applies to the rest of his skills – they have a delay to be applied, which significantly reduces his engage potential. In addition, ranged Heroes can significantly complicate his life, preventing him from pushing properly or wasting his HP before the start of the fight.

Useful Strategies and Tips

Rock-It! Turret – In addition to their main purpose of dealing damage, they can also serve as a ward, giving vision to an area on the map. In addition, they can prevent the activation of lenses, such as Altars in the Tower of Doom map. The main drawback is immobility, they can be broken and they are active for only 15 seconds. Therefore, it is very important to have a supply of Scraps for a teamfight, and to place them correctly in battle.

Deth Lazor is a good skill for the poking enemy team. It is also very effective against minion waves and allows for fast pushing or wave clearing.

Xplodium Charge allows Gazlowe to apply CC in a small area. Due to the small delay, it will be wiser to use it in conjunction with teammate control or in teamfight when it will be more difficult for enemies to get out of the radius. It can also be used for zoning, preventing enemies from getting close.

Robo-Goblin greatly enhances pushing and siege potential. In addition, it will be more difficult for enemy heroes to deal with Gazlowe one-on-one, which will distract the enemy team from capturing Map objectives, creating a threat to quickly pass their line of structures.

Grav-O-Bomb 3000 is a dangerous skill that will be indispensable in teamfight. Because of the delay, it makes more sense to use it when the enemies are already under the influence of CC, for example, Malfurion roots, to make sure that they do not leave the zone before activating the skill.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, even though all skills except Rock-It! Turrets only have a cooldown, it is very important to properly dispose of Scrap. After all, without turrets Gazlowe it will be much more difficult to be useful in teamfights. If you’re having a problem with a lack of Scraps, talents like Big Game Hunter can help speed up their recovery.
