The Nerubian Tower is an upgrade from the Ziggurat. It deals cold damage and slows enemy units.[1]

It is named after the towers of Azjol-Nerub, which were destroyed in the War of the Spider.

Spells and abilities

Frost Attack (Passive)

Adds a cold effect to this unit's attacks that slows enemy units'
movement speed by 50% and attack speed by 25%.


NEVER stack these over Spirit Towers. Two or three is enough; their main purpose is to slow enemy units, while Spirit Towers deal substantially more damage.
