Passive: Firaga Armor

X.Borg is equipped with a homemade Firaga Armor that inherits his own Max HP, taking all damage for X.Borg while it's active. A short circuit will take place when the Armor runs out of HP, and X.Borg will do a roll to the direction of the Joystick to disengage from the armor. In this meantime, X.Borg won't take any damage. He then continues to restore energy in Armorless State. When energy is full. X.Borg will re-equip the armor and restore the armor to 30% of his Max HP.

X.Borg's fire damage causes enemies to warm up, and enemies with Highest Temperature will drop Firaga supplies when they take flame damage.

Skill 1: Fire Missiles
CD: 4s

X.Borg activates the flamethrower and fires in the specified direction, dealing 30/44/58/72/86/100 (+50%Total Physical Attack) points of Physical Damage for 2 seconds. Enemies whose Temperature rises to the limit will take True Damage to enemies and slow down by 10%.

Armorless State: X.Borg adjusts the flamethrower to narrow angle and lengthen distance, reducing the damage 60% of that in Armor State.

Skill 2: Fire Stake
CD: 11 to 7.5s

X.Borg shoots 6 Fire Stakes at the edge of the fan-shaped indicator. 1.2s later, the stakes are taken back into his body. Each stake deals 50 / 60 / 70 / 80 / 90 / 100 (+20%Total Physical Attack) Physical Damage to enemies in the path and pulls them back. If the Fire Stake touches Firaga supplies in its path, it will be take them back as well.

Armorless State: X.Borg adjusts the Fire Stake Launcher to send the stakes farther away and shortens the gap between the stakes.

Ultimate Skill: Last insanity
CD: 30s to 24s

X.Borg charges forward in a designated direction and starts the self-destruct program, spins around frantically and shoots fire around to deal 200 / 250 / 300 (+100% Extra Physical Attack) points of Physical Damage and slowing enemies by 30%. The whole process lasts 3s. Then he self-explodes to cause 300/500/700 and 15% of True Damage of target's Max HP. The explosion destroys the current Firaga Armor and puts himself under Armorless State, where this skill cannot be used. He can move again according to the direction of Joystick after he self-explodes.

Use again to end the flame spray and self-destruct right away.


Ideal Build
  • Tough Boots
  • Bloodlust Axe
  • Immortality
  • Rose Gold Meteor
  • Queen's Wings
  • Blade of Despair
Secret behind the build: X.Borg already deals a decent amount of damage because of his capability to deal true damage. This is perfect for beginners so that X.Borg won't die easily. Tough Boots and Immortality are for early defense. Immortality also is one of the best item for X.Borg since when its passive triggers, X.Borg will be revived with Firaga Armor again.

Pro's suggested items aside from those given already above

Warrior Boots - use this instead of Tough Boots if you don't need the CC duration reduction and magic defense. When up against physical offlaners, it is better to use this item then just build a magic defense item later on to defend against magic damage.

Beast Killer - the best jungle item for X.Borg to help him farm faster and stay in teamfights longer. Best for a carry type X.Borg.

Courage Mask - for support type X.Borg. Although, some players prefer upgrading Wooden Mask only to Iron Mask for the cooldown reduction. It really depends on your decision. Just keep in mind also about the extra passive of Tier 3 Roam Items

Hunter's Strike - so that X.Borg can deal more damage. Just replace a defense item for this item.

Magic Items - the Necklace of Durance, Ice Queen Wand, and Glowing Wand are all proven viable for X.Borg. Its passives can be easily activated and abused by X.Borg's skills.

Example of a pro jungler build:
  • Beast Killer
  • Warrior Boots
  • Bloodlust Axe
  • Hunter's Strike
  • Blade of Despair
  • Immortality
Example of a build for support type X.Borg:
  • Courage Mask
  • Tough Boots
  • Bloodlust Axe
  • Immortality
  • Queen's Wings
  • Athena's Shield
Here are other variations of the build

Recommended Emblem:
  • Fighter Emblem Festival of Blood Talent
  • 3 pts for Bravery (Phy Atk) and Persistence (HP)

The spell vamp helps X.Borg to heal while dealing damage in the middle of the teamfight. The physical attack boost indirectly boosts your HP Regen and the extra HP stat from this emblem can help X.Borg absorb some damage. He can go to the center of the teamfight and retreat safely without getting killed.
Recommended Spell: Flicker

This will help you to escape. But much more than that, it will increase the success rate of your ultimate skill by repositioning using the Flicker Spell.


The common lane for X.Borg is toplane. This is when X.Borg is used as a fighter and an offlaner.

Clear the first wave. Kill the jungle monster. Clear wave and try to help your midlaner to get the goldcrab by dealing damage or zoning enemies out.

Lane cut if possible. This tactic is used by pro players to rotate faster and even get an opportunity to push turrets or invade enemy jungle.

Another playstyle for X.Borg is the midlaner type and his role is support.

Clear wave. Help the carry hero, which is usually the mage, to get the buff. Then kill the nearby jungle monster and then help in securing the crab. Get back to midlane and then your next rotation will depend on your carry hero.
