Nazeebo, the Witch Doctor, is a ranged specialist hero from the Diablo universe.[1] With cabalistic incantations and vestments of feather and bone, the Witch Doctors call upon spirits from the Unformed Land to aid them in battle. Few outlanders have ever encountered a Witch Doctor in the flesh, without losing their own.

Nazeebo is a sustained damage Mage whom gains power when killing enemy minions.

Background[edit | edit source]

Diablo (franchise) This section concerns content exclusive to Diablo universe.

Nazeebo represents the Witch Doctor class in Diablo III.

All Witch Doctors hail from the Umbaru tribes. Secluded deep in the jungles of Kehjistan, the Umbaru people are unlike any other in the lands of Sanctuary. They have very deeply rooted spiritual beliefs and teach that this life is nothing but a shadow of what really awaits us on the other side.

Real life exists in the Mbwiru Eikura, the Unformed Land, and our spirits go there when we die. Due to this belief the Umbaru have learned to not fear death and ritual sacrifice is a normal part of life in their tribes. One of these practices is the Igani Bawe or Harvest of Souls, which is a ritualistic war between the different tribes. Participating in this mock battle is one of the highest honors for a Witch Doctor and they spend their lives preparing for it. Even though no lives are lost during the 'hunt' anyone captured by an opposing tribe is to be sacrificed after the war has ended. Since this ritual sacrifice is decreed by the spirits of the Unformed Land no one questioned the practice, at least no one until Nazeebo did.

During the last Harvest Nazeebo defied his peoples' laws and stopped an opposing tribe from taking the life of his master because he knew the truth. Nazeebo knew that the elders had lost contact with the spirits and truly knew nothing of the Unformed Land that lies beyond their reach. The elders were using the laws and traditions of the Umbaru to further their own power and were not offering any spiritual guidance to their people.

Nazeebo encountered others and planted the seeds of doubt in the minds of other Witch Doctors to help his people on the proper path to the Unformed Land before he set off on his own personal journey to the lands of the West where a great evil was rising that threaten not only his own tribe but all the people of Sanctuary.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

Nazeebo is able to deal high sustained damage very safely and from a long range. Zombie Wall is a form of crowd control that is unique to Nazeebo. It can be used to isolate Heroes or split up the enemy team, especially when used in choke-points. Voodoo Ritual provides Nazeebo with a very large health pool, making him significantly more difficult to kill than most Assassins.

Quotes[edit | edit source]

Main article: Nazeebo/Quotes


Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Nazeebo represents the witch doctor class from Diablo III (May 2012).
  • Nazeebo is voiced by Carl Lumbly.
  • Before the Alpha, the witch doctor's name was Naziba rather than Nazeebo.[2] In older builds he was simply referred to as "Witch Doctor".[1]
  • Nazeebo was one of the 18 heroes revealed at BlizzCon 2013.
  • Nazeebo is somewhat unique in that he represents a blending of Blizzard's three main universes - a witch doctor from Diablo, holding the head of a troll witch doctor from Warcraft, with a zergling skull from StarCraft on the back of his hip.[3]
  • One of Nazeebo's gag quotes refers the famous Warcraft line "stay away from the voodoo".
  • Gingerdread Nazeebo's Plague of Toads might be a reference to Harry Potter where chocolate frogs are a popular confection.
  • When animating Nazeebo's Gargantuan there was a bug in the game during development where a Minion would randomly attach to his hand. It was incredibly funny and the Designer agreed to make it a part of his kit. They created some animations to have him actually pickup the minions and then attack with the minion still in his hand.[4]
