Meet Mox! New hero due in September

Postby [FnG] Da Kril » Tue Aug 19, 2008 11:56 pm

Anyone need an Asuran construct Dervish hero? Well, your prayers have been answered. Or something.

There's a new boxed set of all four Guild Wars chapters coming out in September (£25/$50), and ANet is throwing in a new hero to go with it.

Regina Buenaobra has confirmed a new Dervish hero called “M.O.X.” will be in a September build of the game.
Mox's page at the official ANet wiki.

Official ANet wiki wrote:M.O.X. the Golem is the latest hero to be made available within the Guild Wars universe, an Asuran construct, quoted as "...the ultimate in magic, mechanised party protection."
  • M.O.X. will be made available to anyone who has the three Guild Wars campaigns active on their account. However, the specifics on obtaining this hero have not yet been released.
  • “Mox will be obtainable in the same way for everyone, regardless of whether they purchased the new collection or whether they already have the three campaigns unlocked on their account. I can't talk specifics, but it won't be difficult to obtain him,” Regina said.
  • M.O.X. is expected to be available in the September update.
  • Unlike other Golems, M.O.X. will be susceptible to all conditions.
  • This hero will be PvE only and will not be usable in PvP.
  • M.O.X.'s name was inspired by the short story Moxon's Master by Ambrose Bierce.
  • M.O.X. will use unique models for the five avatar forms.

The no-PvP thing has to do with the size of the model, the custom Form avatars and difficulty seeing which weapon he's holding.
(things that matter little in PvE)

Not sure, but I think he may look something like this.

WTF do we need another Dervish hero for?! I've used Melonni for a total of one required quest and one mission!

Why not make him open to any class since he is a golem and does not need specific "armor" appearance? I wouldn't mind having a 4th necro or ele (one for each element). Or even another Charge warrior for chest runs. What good is a dervish that can't maintain its avatar?

Looks like it's coming sooner rather than later — they're saying Sept. 5 now.

@ Chokky: Yeah, not my first choice, either. OTOH, I've used Derv heroes quite a bit — makes an excellent tank in later Nightfall, configured for Holy Damage, what with all the Abaddon creepy dead monsters taking it in the pants 2x.

Gaaahhh! I can't get him outfitted properly -- everybody's buying up Derv runes for their MOX, so there's no Maj or Sup scythe mastery at the trader, nor minor earth prayers. Crap. :|

Anyway -- did the ROX and POX quests, just have NOX left to do. Poor MOX got spanked a bit in ToA. Gotta get him a rune so he can kill stuff before it kills him. heh The reward for the Zinn umbrella quest for these three is pretty cool, includes 10K gold and a bunch of automaton summoning stones.

One side benefit is MOX comes equipped with a manky version of a Clockwork scythe, a really cool animated skin, rare drop from one of the tough EotN dungeon chests. If you don't mind the not-max mods on it, you can swipe the scythe and use it on your own derv.

==========

Apart from MOX, another new thing in this update is an Igneous Summoning Stone, that lets you call up a fire imp to help you level up toons. (lvl 20 cannot use it.) It effectively adds an extra party member, li'l fire nuker to help you out. You get it when you type /bonus if you've bought the games recently, or if you've bought stuff through the online store.

Yay, big silly thing,

Nox is the toughest. We did them last night, and I expect we'll do them again for our secondary characters tonight as well, so if you want peeps to do Nox with, just let us know! :)

Agreed - NOX was horrible to deal with :( The most ridiculous thing, though, was not giving any clues as to where the secret lair might be. My guess was GWEN, since the first three quests were in Prophesies, Factions and Nightfall respectively ....... wrong!!! I'm also not convinced I got the gold reward - I had too much on my char already, so watch that one :roll:
