Gazlowe, Boss of Ratchet is a construction-based hero in Heroes of the Storm. He builds turrets and launch pads. His ultimate ability is him heading inside his armor. Gazlowe places gadgets and traps that fight his enemies, allowing him to secure strategic positions very easily.

Background Edit

Few would consider the diminutive Gazlowe a fighter, but what he lacks in height, he more than makes up for in mechanical know-how. Besides, you don't get to be boss of "boom"-town like Ratchet is you don't know how to turn a few screws, if you know what I mean.
