Heroes of the Storm – Gazlowe – Talents



Few would consider the diminutive Gazlowe a fighter, but waht he lacks in height, he more than makes up in mechanical know-how. Besides, you don’t get to be boss of a “boom”-town like Ratchet just because you have a charming personality, if you know what I mean.


Specializes in zoning out his enemies and securing areas with Turrets and Xplodium Charges. Can supercharge his Deth Lazor for increased area of effect damage.

gazlowe-store-thumbnailGazlowe was originally conceived as a new character for the video-game Warcraft Adventures: Lord of the Clans. That game was cancelled by Blizzard Entertainment.

Gazlowe was the chief-engineer in charge of building Orgrimmar — as seen in Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne (orc campaign).

Later, Gazlowe remained in Ratchet, a goblin town on the eastern coast of The Barrens where he oversees the transportation and cargo operations of ships sailing from Booty Bay.

Gazlowe helped rebuild Orgrimmar after the Undead Scourge invasion (the pre-Wrath of the Lich King world event) where Orgrimmar was attacked by Frostwyrms, and later the remodeling of Orgrimmar with Saronite and other metals when Garrosh was appointed as Warchief after Orgrimmar was set ablaze during the elemental invasion (the pre-Cataclysm expansion world event).
