Rage

N'aix goes into a maddened rage, becoming immune to magic spells and gaining increased attack speed.

Feast

Regenerates a portion of an enemy's current HP and deals the same portion per attack.

Open Wounds

N'aix rends the enemy, slowing his movespeed and allowing his allies to feast on his life force, regenerating a portion of the damage dealt. The victim slowly recovers movement speed over 8 seconds.

Infest

The Lifestealer tears its way into the unfortunate body of a target unit, laying dormant and undetectable inside its living frame until he is ready to come to form. When he comes out of the unit, he deals damage to all nearby enemy units. If the infested unit is an enemy, the Lifestealer will devour it first, gaining the health the unit currently has.

A vicious and insidious creature, the Lifestealer is particularly good at tearing tough heroes down. Using his Feast passive skill, which deals damage and steals life based on the hit points of the target, he can serve as a powerful anti-tank hero. Open Wounds allows him to immobilize his prey and encourages allies to move in for the kill, giving life steal on all attacks against the target for a short period of time. It is likely enemies will try to stop the Lifestealer with spells of their own, but using his terrifying Rage skill he becomes temporarily magic immune and gains an attack speed bonus, giving him time to rip apart his enemies. Due to his up-close and personal fighting style, N'aix sometimes gets in over his head. If this happens, he can make use of his Infest ability. Infest allows the Lifestealer to burrow inside any non-hero unit, rendering him completely hidden from enemy eyes. When ready, N'aix can burst from his victim, stealing a large amount of their life and killing them instantly.

There once was a man in Lordaeron so consumed by greed that he was beyond remorse. Eventually caught trying to steal Prince Arthas' sacred ring, he was tried and hanged. Yet his body, so corrupted by his desire to steal, rose by itself in the form of a monstrous ghoul. So came into being N'aix, his old name long forgotten: the embodiment of lust and greed, bent on stealing the life of every living creature he encounters.
