Introduction Top

Hello everyone,my name is Hueyz but i go by "illidan" ingame. I have been playing Heroes of the Storm since early Alpha and i finally decided to write a guide on a underrated hero, in my opinion anyways. I went on a 12 match win streak with him, and noticed a thread on Reddit describing him and a recommended build, which i disagree with. This build helped me through out 12 matches, with proper adjustment of course. I will explain which talents can be switched depending on the match or what you intend on doing later in the corresponding level.

Due note that Gazlowe is not your typical hero. He is a tricky one, you will need to master when and where to plant your bombs and turrets, as well not to forget to recycle expiring turrets. You need to remember that this hero can be squishy, and in certain fights( Nova, Zeratul) you might want to roll with a more defensive build and get more involved in team fights as opposed to roaming taking camps and pushing.

TIER 1 Top

TIER 1: Extra TNT

I go with Extra TNT because it really helps Gazlowe out with pushing and in team fights. If you pick up Kwik Release Charge later in the game, this skill becomes extremely powerful and a serious issue to the enemy during team fights.

TIER 2 Top

TIER 2: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

For Tier 2 there is a lot you can go with, but i mainly go for Reduce, Reuse, Recycle because Gazlowe has a mana problem, this will become even more noticeable if you go pushing lanes and minions. Superiority is a strong pick as well, i like this for Sky Temple and other maps that Gazlowe usually is busy fighting mercs.

TIER 3 Top

TIER 3: Rock-It! Turret XL

Tier 3 is a bit trickier, since Gazlowe benefits greatly from Mercenary Lord because he can easily take camps, and you might even be in matches where a teammate may ask you to pick this talent, which is OK depending on the team comp and match. But i feel that Rock-It! Turret XL is the stronger pick, it benefits Gazlowe greatly in not only taking on camps, but in team fights. Since the release of the The Lost Vikings, this could not be more true. Two or three turrets completely murder The Lost Vikings and at times keeps them from even coming near you.

TIER 4 Top

TIER 4: Robo-Goblin

Gazlowe possesses two very unique and powerful ult's, both with strong and weak points. Robo-Goblin is all around good. It provides you with extra damage Vs. Mercs and Structures, while in the late game increasing your Vs. Hero damage. But it hinders you from picking up a strong, range CC. Grav-O-Bomb 3000 is, to me, a very very strong CC ult. It deals damage in an area and pulls back the enemies caught in it to the center of the bomb. This talent, i feel is best picked if you are the only CC or if you feel confident in your team fight dominance.

TIER 5 Top

TIER 5: Burning Rage

In this tier, the talent can also be up to the match. Burning Rage is a strong pick, but so is Kwik Release Charge. The double stun is good, but the constant damage from Burning Rage and your planted Turret's already doing damage, your AOE damage will go through the roof. It also aids in clearing camps and pushing lanes.

TIER 6 Top

TIER 6: Turret Storage

Turret Storage is the go to talent here for many reasons, but my favorite being that you can plant a mini army of Turret's and watch your enemy cry as they get pummeled to death. This also allows you to plant what i call "Sentry Turret's", these can be planted in areas you would want vision or to interrupt a channel for example ; Dragon Shire.

TIER 7 Top

TIER 7: Mecha-Lord

Now this is where Gazlowe really starts dishing out the damage. Not only will you be doing INSANE damage from your AOE build, but you will be able to 1.v.1 most heroes with no issues, granted you plant your bombs and turrets in the correct positions. With Mecha-Lord, Gazlowe becomes a hybrid assasin that will be a valuable heroe in team fights and taking out forts. This is a must if you picked Robo-Goblin, in my opinion.
