Nishai is a location in the Dota 2 world. It is known for seasonal earthquakes, during which its mountainous peaks dislodge avalanches onto the land. Sealed caverns run below the land, where no light shines save the glow of bioluminescent creatures.[1]

Earthshaker minimap icon.png Earthshaker hails from Nishai, where he lay dormant until one particular earthquake shook him awake.[2] His magical totem is also of Nishian origin, although what special properties this confers is unclear.[3] Gargoyles also inhabit Nishai, and are known to have befriended Earthshaker.[4]

A secret order of weaponsmiths live in Nishai. It is they who crafted the Eclipse Monolith for Earthshaker, a special totem that absorbs sun and moonlight.[5]
