Classification
Species: Golem
Profession: Dervish Dervish-icon.png
Level(s): 20

M.O.X. is a Golem Dervish Hero that has been added with the September 4th, 2008, update.


Recruitment

PvE characters can unlock M.O.X. by meeting these three requirements:
  1. Have Guild Wars Prophecies, Factions and Nightfall on the account (you can have purchased them separately or have got Guild Wars: The Complete Collection),
  2. Reach level 10,
  3. Talk to M.O.X. outside any one of the major port cities.

Recruiting M.O.X. gives you Golem User Manual, which allows you to enter the M.O.X. missions.

M.O.X. cannot be used in PvP; the Priest of Balthazar doesn't offer it.

Notes

  • M.O.X. was constructed by the Asuran golem constructor Zinn.
  • Unlike other golems, it is fleshy.
  • M.O.X.'s default weapon is an uninscribable, maximum damage Clockwork Scythe.
  • You get a Golem User Manual book with the hero. In the book, you can enter a mission, which just allows you to get Zinn's Task quest. You must kick all heroes and add M.O.X. to enter this mission.
  • The Dervish avatar forms look different for M.O.X.:
  • M.O.X. can be added to the Hall of Monuments. There is no hero armor upgrade at this time for it.
  • You will see M.O.X. outside the port cities if any member of your party has yet to recruit it and meets the campaign requirements (M.O.X. may not be a party member). By talking to it, you aquire a new Golem User Manual if you have lost yours, but you won't be able to repeat Zinn's Task if you have already completed it with that character before.

Trivia

  • The name is a reference to the short story Moxon’s Master by Ambrose Bierce.
  • "If you prick me, do I not leak" was originally said by Data from Star Trek. This quote is itself a parody of "If you prick us, do we not bleed?" from Shakespeare's play, The Merchant of Venice.

  • "I think it would be better not to die, do not you" is a line spoken by the robot Sonny from the film I, Robot.

  • "DANGER, DANGER" is the signature line from the 1960s sci-fi series Lost In Space, as in "DANGER WILL ROBINSON, DANGER DANGER"
  • "DANGER, DANGER, DANGER" may refer to Giru in the Dragon Ball GT series, which is his key phrase whenever Pan is near.
  • "This conversation serves no purpose anymore, good-bye" is a line spoken by the homicidal computer HAL in the movie and novel 2001: A Space Odyssey.
  • "Immolation is the sincerest form of flattery" is a parody of the phrase "Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery".
