|Characters can unlock M.O.X. by meeting these three requirements:
- Kaineng Center
- Tarnished Coast
M.O.X. starts with basic AL 70 Dervish armor. Note that M.O.X. is the only hero that cannot be given any hero armor upgrades at this time, though his appearance does change when using Dervish Avatars.
- Chilling Victory
- Faithful Intervention
- Heart of Holy Flame
- Mystic Sweep
- Resurrection Signet
- Victorious Sweep
When M.O.X. is waiting for a member of your party to acquire it, its response depends on whether you meet the requirements to recruit it.

- You receive a Golem User Manual when you first speak to M.O.X. The book allows you to begin a new quest, Zinn's Task.
- M.O.X. can be added to the Hall of Monuments. There is no hero armor upgrade at this time for it.
- M.O.X. appears outside the port of each campaign whenever any player in the party meets the golem's requirements. However, M.O.X. will not appear if another player has already included their M.O.X. in the party.
- M.O.X. is identified as "he" in the Golem User Manual.
- The Dervish Avatar forms look different for M.O.X.:
- A duplicate M.O.X. will show up as a "Dervish Construct".
