Norog End Game Build Guide

Norog is a DEF based Magic Affinity Legendary Champion from the Skinwalkers Faction that has a relatively simple yet effective skill kit. He is a great champion for Ice Golem, a Solid CB Champion if you’re still lacking the end-game CB champions, and is one of the best for Skinwalkers Faction Wars. With the release of the two new Doom Tower Bosses, Eternal Dragon and Celestial Griffin his passive fits perfectly as a great option for those bosses.


His A1 and A2 have good multipliers so he can hit hard, but the debuffs these two abilities apply are for the most part irrelevant. His passive ability Thick Skin is his most important ability. He is immune to all hard CC (Stun, Freeze, and Sleep) and provides a team wide damage reduction.

To put his damage reduction into perspective Stalwart set is an amazing set that provides 30% damage reduction from AOE attacks but is a 4-piece set. Norog’s passive provides half of this effect (15%) at worst case for ANY attacks, not just AOE. Best case scenario it’s slightly less damage reduction for ANY attacks for the team (25%). Since most of his utility is in his passive, he does not require any books at all to be effective making him cheap to build on a budget.


Masteries on this Norog build are fairly simple. Since his debuffs are irrelevant, we will take the Offense and Defense Tree. In the Offense Tree, the standard Clan Boss damage dealing masteries are chosen. Crit Rate, Crit Damage and all the CB damage increasing masteries on the left down to Warmaster. In the Defense Tree, take the Damage mitigation mastery in Tough Skin, Blastproof, Delayed Death into Counterattack masteries, Retribution and Deterrence.

Gear & Stats Build

Gearing Norog is also quite simple. You want to prioritize building him with Defense, Crit Rate, Crit Damage, and Speed. Ideally 4k+ Defense, 100% Crit Rate, 200%+ Crit Damage, and enough speed to fit your CB speed tune team if you use him there. If you’re not using him in CB, then as much speed as possible, around 200+.

For Clan Boss, Lifesteal set is a must, unless you have Leech in your team. You can then use any 2-piece set to maximize your stats. For any other non-CB content, you can gear him with any set in the game since all you need on him are pure damaging stats. He is a perfect champion to fit your broken gear pieces that have amazing substats.

Recommended Main Stats

  • Glove: Crit Rate / Crit Damage
  • Chest: Def %
  • Boots: Def % / Speed
  • Ring: Def
  • Amulet: Crit Damage
  • Banner: Def

The Norog build shown here is used in a speed tuned Clan Boss team, hence the 172 speed in Lifesteal. This exact build can be used in any other content but if you are not using him in CB, having more speed, 200+ is recommended, and he will perform much better.

Clan Boss Team & Strategy

Norog’s utility in Clan Boss is his passive damage reduction for the team and being immune to stun. Norog can be built as the stun target. On Void, put him in the lead position so the CB will target him. Affinities will be more complex;

  1. Force – The easiest to set up since Norog is weak affinity. You can position Norog anywhere, but he must go before any other Magic champion you have in your team. eg. if you have a FB, Norog should be positioned before her so the CB will target Norog first (Norog at a slot 2, FB at slot 4). This means that you do not have to put Norog in the lead. If you have champions of other affinities with an aura, you can use them as lead.
  2. Magic – You must not have any Spirit champion in your team as the Magic CB will always target it. Without a Spirit champion, you can position Norog after your Force champions since CB will not target Force champions. If you have a Force champion like Sepulcher Sentinel, you can use her as lead and put Norog in the other slots (You must still follow the same concept as Force above if you have other Magic champions in your team).
  3. Spirit – Norog cannot be the stun target for Spirit because he is a positive affinity there and a standard CA team usually don’t work in Spirit anyway due to the slow debuff.

This is an example of a Late game CB team built to use Norog as the stun target:

This team works on UNM and NM, all affinity except Spirit. This video shows this team running on UNM and NM. The UNM run unfortunately ended early due to missing ATK down but was still able to 3 key and the NM run comfortably 1 key. You can reach 2 key territory with Norog if that is your goal.

Faction Wars Team & Strategy

The Skinwalker faction has very limited options and most of them are not amazing. Norog is definitely one of the best options for this faction in Faction Wars.

Since this faction does not currently have any revivers, it is very important to survive and not to let your champions kick the bucket to get the 3* completion. Norog’s passive damage reduction helps with that. The FW21 boss here is the one that swaps buffs, leaving your team without any buffs, hence triggering the bigger (25%) damage reduction from Norog’s passive. He is also a solid damage dealer, which is needed since this boss swaps health and you need to take down the bosses before he can swap health again.

This team below shows a Skinwalker 21 stage with Basher, Norog, Brakus, Fayne and Steelskull in the team. This can be done on auto, but if you need to complete this stage for the first time, you should consider running this stage on manual and time placing Fayne’s debuffs after the boss uses the transfers Debuffs skill. Having all the Debuffs from Fayne transferred back to your team may cause your team to take too much damage and wipe before clearing.

Ice Golem 20 Team & Strategy

Norog is a great champion for Ice Golem as he provides protection from the hard hitting AOE damage through his passive. He also deals decent amount of damage to help take down the Ice Golem and cannot be frozen. A strong example team and roles for Ice Golem 20 with Norog in the team would be as follows:

  • Stag Knight has AOE Def Down and ATK Down for further damage reduction and speeding up the runs.
  • Dark Elhain is a damage dealer that can utilize her passive to convert the Freeze debuff into damage on the boss stage.
  • Gorgorab provides Increase Attack, TM boosting, healing and resurrection.
  • Scyl provides additional support through passive healing, CC, and backup resurrection if things go South.

Doom Tower Runs

Celestial Griffin

Norog’s passive is actually incredibly well suited for the Griffin. His passive reduces the damage your team takes by 25% without buffs and 15% with buffs. The Griffin will always strip your buffs and the so the 25% damage reduction is almost always in effect. At worst case where you have buffs up, the 15% damage reduction is still there, so a win-win situation. Building him with 200+ speed here will be much better here rather than the 170+ speed for CB.

The team used for Hard Stage 90 Celestial Griffin is as follows:

  • Scyl of the Drakes
  • Rotos
  • Norog
  • Drexthar
  • Doompriest

Scyl provides support to the team with her constant heals, increase speed, and emergency revives. Norog provide passive team damage reduction and is a secondary DPS for the Boss. His passive is even more effective here at providing the full 25% damage reduction because the Griffin constantly strips buffs. Rotos and Drexthar provide DPS. Finally, Doompriest provides additional support with her heals and cleanse the debuffs places or transferred to your team each turn.

Eternal Dragon

Norog’s passive is also incredibly well suited for the Eternal Dragon. His passive reduces the damage your team takes by 25% without buffs and 15% with buffs. The Dragon locks out your skills so you can’t put up buffs, so the 25% damage reduction is almost always in effect. At worst case where you have buffs up, the 15% damage reduction is still there, so a win-win situation

The team used for Hard Stage 120 Eternal Dragon is as follows:

  • Scyl of the Drakes
  • Vrask
  • Norog
  • Drexthar
  • Jareg

Scyl provides support to the team with her constant heals, increase speed, AOE stuns, and emergency revives. Scyl is built with a high enough resistance to resist all the Dragon’s Skill Cooldown affecting abilities so, she can still CC the minions and revive dead allies. Norog provides passive team damage reduction from the Dragon’s Hard hitting AOE and is a secondary DPS. Drexthar is the main damage dealer through his AOE HP Burns, while Jareg places Decrease Attack on the boss to reduce incoming damage and places a Continuous Heal buff on your team after taking the Dragon’s hard hitting AOE. Finally, Vrask provides additional team healing since the heal from Scyl and Jareg is not enough to sustain the team.
