Nogdar the Headhunter Review

Nodgar the Headhunter is a fierce warrior who shows no mercy to his enemies. Don’t be fooled into thinking you can defeat him easily – he’s a force to be reckoned with! Nodgar is a legendary champion with a Spirit affinity, belonging to the Orcs faction. He recently received a boost in power during Patch 7.10.

Nodgar has always been a unique and powerful champion for player versus player battles (PVP). He has the ability to revive himself after death and can manipulate the health of his targets. After the buff, his skills have become even more impressive. His A3 skill can now grant him an extra turn, and when he is revived, he gains a full Turn Meter. Additionally, his A2 skill now provides Continuous Heal buffs to all allies, not just himself. The main strategy behind his abilities is to sacrifice 50% of his own health to equalize it with an enemy, followed by an extra turn for devastating attacks. However, you need to be cautious because his A2 skill sacrifices an additional 50% of his health after attacking, which can potentially kill him. This is where his passive ability comes into play.

With the Headsman’s Return passive ability, Nodgar rises again from darkness to seek the heads of his enemies. Thanks to a 100% Turn Meter boost, he can immediately take another offensive turn. If all his active skills are on cooldown, using his A1 skill to kill an enemy will grant him an additional turn. This synergy between his skills and passive ability creates a unique cycle of multiple powerful attacks and health effects. If you equip him with Frenzy gear, this cycle can perfectly align with bonus Turn Meter boosts. In conclusion, Nodgar is a specialist in arena battles but can also be highly valuable for clearing Faction Wars.

Nogdar the Headhunter Champion Lore

The Orc Nogdar is known by many sinister names – Blood Neck, the Headhunter, Brother Butcher, and the Headsman are just a few of his foreboding titles. But while they are used across Teleria, it is among his own kind that Nogdar is most infamous. Many Orcs believe that Nogdar is no mortal but an avenging spirit, sent by the ancestors to wreak death and destruction on those deserving of it.

But it was not always so, according to the legend. The Headhunter was the weakest son born to Shashrak, an Orc general who commanded a Gaellen Pact army during its war against the Telerian League. With his many older brothers competing for their father’s attention, Nogdar believed he could never gain Shashrak’s approval, much less his appreciation. But Shashrak was not as oblivious to his fatherly duties as he first appeared. Though he did not talk of it, he watched his youngest and weakest son closely, waiting to see if a day would come when he would prove himself.

That day came shortly after the Gaellen defeat at the Battle of Mourncliff. Having launched his flanking maneuver too early and against orders, Skarrow, Shashrak’s eldest son, bore the blame for the defeat. He further compounded his failure by coming to blows with his father. Skarrow was punished with exile, but the arrogant son would not accept it. Shashrak was left with no choice but to sentence his son to death. But Skarrow remained popular among the Orcs of his father’s army, and Shashrak could find none who would carry out the sentence – until Nogdar stepped forward.

Perhaps he was driven by bitterness toward his siblings, or perhaps he merely wished to prove his worth and dedication to his father. Either way, when he beheaded his older brother, Nogdar sealed his own fate as surely as he did Skarrow’s. While he had carried out Shashrak’s orders and earned his respect, he had likewise secured the enmity of the rest of his kin, and a huge number of Orc warriors besides.

The war continued to go against the Pact. At the disastrous Battle of Blood Crag, Shashrak himself was cut down. Without his firm leadership, the Pact army that had fought under him disintegrated.

Shashrak’s death should have spelled doom for Nogdar, for the first thing his surviving older brothers did was find him. They cornered and attacked him near Blood Crag, but Nogdar proved far more dangerous than they had anticipated. He faced them down, fighting and besting the oldest and strongest before the others reached him. Jagro the Knife was next, but Grull and Horndax — the two remaining siblings – were finally able to drag Nogdar to the ground.

There the matter might have ended, left as a cautionary tale for all Orcs, but this was not the last of Nogdar. Certainly, the popular accounts hold to a sinister belief that, though all those who knew him believed Nogdar was slain and his body burned, he has been seen stalking those who have wronged him.

At first, it is said, Grull and Horndax scorned rumors of Nogdar’s return, but they had little time to regret their foolishness, for the Brother Butcher came for them both in turn, defeating them and cutting the heads from their shoulders. Taking the blood from his brothers’ corpses, Nogdar circled his neck with lines of the thick fluid, one for each of the siblings he had slain.

From that day forth, the legend of the Headhunter has prevailed. Nogdar has been reported appearing among his fellow-Orcs unannounced, offering to hunt and kill those who have wronged his chosen allies. He speaks little, and when he does his voice is a deathly scrape. Down the years, his ax has blackened with the viscera of those he has executed, and he always refreshes the blood on his torso, daubing the vital essence of his latest victim over the deep stain of his war paint. Learned non-Orcs who have heard the many tales of Nogdar posit that he may be an agent of the Arbiter, saved from death at the hands of his brothers at the last minute by the hallowed agent of Lumaya. Many Orcs scoff at the notion, but it is a belief gaining traction.

  1. LazarouDave

    Surely Frenzy is no longer a viable set since the re-work?
    Also how is Fury not a recommended set, his A3 puts him straight in threshold for a 50% damage boost!

  2. Doomyeater23

    Maxed him out, so far since the update he is doing well but does Cycle of Violence work on his A3 cant tell if it does….

  3. Hawkmistress

    He’s a prominent member of the best teams against Sand Devil at least in the first 10 levels. I don’t have him. Who has comparable skills?

  4. Max Velocity

    Nogdar is a beast on Doom Tower levels. I use Genbo, Ursula, Tormin, Stag Knight, and Nogdar for fall asleep easy clears. He tops Damage chart every time.

  5. Myst Wolf

    Nogdar isn’t listed as an Equalize HP champ.

  6. thomas stadler

    His A3 is currently bugged and requires no accuracy. this makes him bustedly good for IG25 and frost spider as he effectively one shots the minions.

  7. proeliator nike

    His self-revive triggers sachi’s fear onto enemies(passive)!!!!

  8. Chrysostomus

    Nogdar can be useful against Frost spider, because he can bring the spider Minions to 1 hp in one move. In frenzy set, a2->a3->a1=one dead spider in one turn. Assuming you want to kill them instead using them to increase hp burn damage.

  9. Dave Astle

    @madHatter: Based on the description, Frenzy set shouldn’t trigger from his self damage, but it definitely does, and it’s great on him.

    Also, anyone else think his thumbnail looks like PogChamp?

  10. madHatter

    Did anyone test this with Frenzy? Frenzy set states it only activates for each enemy attack, and not from self damage skills.

  11. Ayumilove Post author

    @Abae: I have updated Nogdar’s A2 Skill by adding the missing HP damage multiplier beside the Attack damage multiplier.

  12. Abae

    Nodgar’s A2 scales off of HP and ATTACK, do does anyone know what the HP multiplier is?


    @Ayumilove: Thanks! I watched also new content creator videos about him and im pleased to see more frenzy in use ^^. I noticed however that recommended masteries for him are more of a arena-only orientated. While it does do it’s work(checked it :P) I wouldn’t recommend it for rest of areas. For more of all-round and casual build( let’s be honest most ppl dont have c.dmg gloves on him) I’d use those:

  14. Pasco94

    Also i dont think he needs accuracy at all. It should be removed from the recommended stats.

  15. Ayumilove Post author

    @GΩD ΣΔTΣR: I have included Frenzy Set as the recommended artifact set for Nogdar the Headhunter!

  16. Richard Petzoldt

    I’m reading Nogdar’s Kit and as far as I can tell he doesn’t need Accuracy at all. I’m not a genius about this so I could be totally wrong. Can somebody smart double check this?
    Also Frenzy set is the perfect set for him like God Eater says. He gets an extra turn after every A2 and A3 if he has frenzy on.


    Could you add Frenzy set for him ? After his A2 and A3 he’s turn meter is fully back on, so he’s snowballing from A2 trough A3 to A1 in one turn( given he’s fast enough) and can even easly gain turn after his A1(given it’s the same target as his A3). Just alternative to Savage set, because his multipiers aren’t creazy but still high, i feel like this could easly overpower enemies in arena, tho i didnt test it yet, exept just checking if frenzy set is working on him(it does).
