Playing as ZeratulEdit
As Zeratul you will want to last hit enemy creep either with your Phase Strike or your auto attack to refresh your Phase Strike and get minerals.
You'll want to get Unfolding Fate as your first skill seeing as you will be able to lane without taking a lot of damage from enemy heroes in the beginning and apply extra damage to creeps.
Zeratul is mainly a pub stomping hero. In the hands of a pub star he is devastating because of the lack of teamwork in public matches.
As Zeratul you will want to rush for a Hand of Mengsk because in your Chronosphere you will slaughter your opponent as long as they aren't fed. Be aware of enemy ranged heroes and towers when you use Chronosphere as it can affect you and your teammates greatly.
Item builds for Zeratul you would want to have at least 2 Psionic Lashers. I prefer 3. An Isomorphic Pyre, Treks and any item that provides survivability.
Use planar void to position yourself behind your enemy or use it to escape from an enemy chasing you.
Be careful when you use your Chronosphere because you can royaly screw over your own team as much as you can help them.
As stated earlier he is a pub star. But facing off with a pro player such as kashyfla and Computer, he is able to dominate and be used in Inhouse games.
Zeratul can also be a good support. use void to force enemy heros into towers.
Playing Against ZeratulEdit
Before he gets his Hand of Mengsk he is very vulnerable.
If you are not the target for Zeratul's ultimate then and you are ranged as soon as he pops Hand of Mengsk focus him down. He will melt so fast because the HoM amplifies damage against him.
Unless you are low on Health then face him.
Never try to attack Zeratul by yourself unless his ulti is on cooldown or you have a massive amount of health/armor
