Core Build Top

Zagara's Core Build in competitive is based around the ultimate 'Devouring Maw'.

PUB Players often see Zagara & a lot of the specialists as independent pushers, but ultimately this game, much like all the rest, is strongest when fighting as a unit/team; thus these builds are largely built around PVP, though Push damage is a default standard on Zagara & not greatly hindered by this build either, it is important to understand your function in a team & always be mindful of your team/map awareness.

Weakness with this Build:- Lvl 7 Endless Creep, is a negative in the sense you are unable to obtain Rapid Incubation at this tier, the output for vision is great but you need to keep your mana high to be able to team fight.

During Lane Phase, make sure to use the hunter killer to phase the opponent/s out of the lane, if you get attacked, all abilities are at your disposal, but if you are the aggressor (which is most of the time for me), you will find using hunter killer and auto attacks to push someone back, helps manage your mana for tumors. Always force your lane before the objectives spawn so you can rotate quickly to assist your team.

PREEMPTIVELY THINK ABOUT YOUR TUMORS & GETTING THEM DOWN FOR THE TEAM VISION.

This is Zagara's Priorities

#1 - Set up Vision & Tumors - If you have a Kael Thas, this will open doorways for ranged damage.

- Note: Setting Tumors in Smokes/Hidden areas around the field, especially in 'likely clash locations'

- Note: When going to place Tumors, send abilities into the smoke, to check if enemies are in there... Heaps of Zagara's walk into my death traps when they are lazy/late to lane. (DONT BE LAZY WITH THIS HERO!)

#2 - Maintain your lane/Creep Waves pushed and set up Tumors on your teams Rotation Path, or if you have stealth assassins, on the enemy teams rotation path. 'A Rotation path is the fastest route for an opponent or team mate, to run from lane to lane, whilst remaining relatively safe. There are different intersections on all maps that can help you assess the direction players will take, think about it and adjust your play-style accordingly.

#3 - Land Team Fight Maws - (This is not an ability you use when other ppl use an Ultimate) - This is done first, or last. If your team has dropped all their abilities you want to maximize that damage, but in a lot of cases Zagara's will just maw and cancel a **** tonne of team damage instead. Either be setting it up , or use it to cut off '1' enemy hero, that is clearly not in the core damage zone.

Maw can be used so many ways its scary.

- You can catch 5 ppl in it for 1, making it as strong as VP (Void the Cast Time)

- You can block exit paths with its animation

- You can setup full Team Wipes, or Prevent them.

Do not under-estimate this talent & do not yolo pick Nydus ever again.

Solo Assassin Build Top

Zagara's Solo Assassin Build,

The main differences here are i have Rapid Incubation & Hunter Killer Range instead of Mutas.

I am expecting a lot of solo engagements, a lot of 'engagements in general', IE. im afraid to back or my team might just get wiped.... This is when you suddenly find out you are one of the few damage dealers on your team and you need to keep the team in the fight by dishing big damage.

The hunter killer range & damage is technically more direct output then the mutas, disregarding they are easier to kite then mutas in some ways, harder than others, the main thing here is that you are as 'ranged orientated as you can be' with the highest direct single target output, whilst also having rapid for sustain health/mana, to ideally win your lane 100%.
