Gazlowe, the Boss of Ratchet, is a Melee Assassin hero from the Warcraft universe.[1] Few would consider the diminutive goblin tinkers fighters, but what they lack in height, they more than make up in mechanical cunning. Gazlowe's mechanical exoskeleton is an especially effective war machine - whenever it's working.

Gazlowe is a Summoner that specializes in controlling key areas of the battleground.

Background[edit | edit source]

Warcraft This section concerns content exclusive to the Warcraft universe.

"Time is money" is a saying all goblins live by, and Gazlowe is no exception - or is he?

As a youngster, Gazlowe was a thief but he managed to make enough coin through his adventures to start his own legitimate business. That business boomed into one of the world's most successful trading ports. Gazlowe manages the trading operations on Kalimdor in the town of Ratchet.

After the events of the Third War, Gazlowe was approached by Thrall to be the chief engineer in the building of Orgrimmar. He was tasked with finding a reliable water source in the dry, harsh climate of Durotar. Digging tunnels outside the city in search of an underground well, Gazlowe and his team ran into a den of kobolds, who flooded the tunnels and drove the goblin miners out. Gazlowe sent Rexxar to deal with the nuisance.

Years and profits went on without much trouble. There was the occasional 99-Year Old Port stolen by Mad Magglish and pesky pirates to the south but nothing questing adventurers couldn't handle. It wasn't until upset fire elementals laid blaze to Orgrimmar that Gazlowe was again asked by Thrall to rebuild the city. Settling on a price, which was lowered several times, the former Warchief departed for Outland.

Following the death of the beloved Cairne Bloodhoof, the treacherous Grimtotem tribe rose up to take control of the tauren city, Thunder Bluff. Cairne's son, Baine, sent a trusted ally named Stormsong to ask Gazlowe for aid in their fight to take back the city. The plan called for outrageous amounts of explosives and weaponry, as well as zeppelins to transport troops. Demands were met and Gazlowe received an enormous sum of money and, very, very rare of a goblin, he gave most of it back as a gesture of respect to Cairne and his son. Gazlowe is keen to remain neutral for profits sake, but retains strong relations with the Horde.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

Gazlowe is a Melee Assassin and Summoner that excels at controlling the space around him, sieging, and claiming Mercenary Camps. By nature, Gazlowe is adept at disputing static objectives, such as Cursed Hollow's Tributes or Dragon Shire's Shrines, whereas he has a harder time playing more aggressively, such as around strategies that rely upon killing a specific target.

Strengths[edit | edit source]

Weaknesses[edit | edit source]

  • Limited survivability
  • Very little target-focused damage
  • Requires setup to maximise damage
  • Particularly weak versus ranged damage dealers
  • Unique playstyle around which teammates must play
