A Toxic Nest is a Summons created by Abathur. Toxic Nests are mines that takes 5 seconds to activate. Once active, it provides vision, gains Stealth, and will explode if an enemy moves over it, damaging nearby enemies and destroying the mine. The mine has its own health pool and can be destroyed by AoE abilities and Basic Attacks, although it can only be targeted with Basic Attacks if revealed. Minions and Mercenaries will not target the mines, but Structures will (when they are visible). Mines can be placed beside each other, but not on top of each other. Mines work on a charge system, allowing you to hold up to 3 charges at a time. One charge is generated every 10 seconds.

Toxic Nests have a variety of uses but are primarily used to provide vision along key paths, dismounting and revealing passing Heroes. Toxic Nests can also be used to help waveclear by placing them in the midst of enemy minions.
