Information

Mozu is a hero appearing in Gigantic.

Official Summary[edit | edit source]

"The recipe for a troublemaker like Mozu is appallingly simple. Just mix a modicum of magical training with a penchant for mischief and a flexible definition of ownership."

-Sage-Instructor Jellathir, House Devaedra

Official Rating Summary[edit | edit source]

Blast them with magic! Mozu has an arsenal of magic wands that confound her enemies and let her teleport across the battlefield.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Mozu is a relatively agile hero with a complex set of attacks. If you want to be a tank, straight DPS, or straight support, skip Mozu - if you're willing to learn the ins and outs of a hero though, and like to think tactically, Mozu is a great choice.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

The fact of the matter is that Mozu is either the best hero or the worst hero entirely based on the play style and abilities of the player controlling Mozu. Because her LMB move, Magic Bolt, takes a lot of time to understand and use properly, a lot of players seem to shy away from her. Part of the problem is that Mozu's LMB builds up damage over time, meaning when you enter a fight, you have low-ish defense, decent enough mobility, but low damage, which amps up over time. This means she is prone to being disrupted, blocked, and mitigated. If you plan your attacks correctly, however, and take on a more "support fire" role than direct DPS, you can do a huge amount of damage with Mozu.

Part of the way you can do this is to pre-arm the LMB attack before you get into a battle. Drop into a fight with a pre-armed LMB, deal as much damage as you can, then use the Dimension Door to "get out of dodge" before you take too much heat. Managing your stamina, though, and understanding the cooldown for Dimension Door is huge: if you're caught without either, you might as well sit still, because you're done, regardless of how effectively you use your other skills or how many allies you have to help.

Lore Letters[edit | edit source]

Council Notes:

Galliard of the Five Horizons writes – “I’m telling you, actual teleportation isn’t possible with just the power from a wand. If you consult this trigram…” Then Fellaid the Scholar interrupts, “and I’m telling you, I saw it happen! Mozu was standing on my desk when I came through that door. She picked up my wand, winked at me, and poof! Actual teleportation.” Colleria the Vermillion asks, “She winked at you?” Fellaid responded, “Yes.” Then he grumbles something unintelligible. Colleria states “Ugh that’s the worst! She did that to me too.” Galliard, “She winked or she stole one of your wands?” Colleria writes “Both, and I’d like to add acquisition of new wand materials and apprehending a wand thief to this month’s agenda.”

House Tesserus field report:

Local folklore in the Hathenack Provence speaks of a magic portal that appears once a generation during a lunar eclipse above Mount Secury. In an effort to understand this phenomenon, we dispatched a field team to observe any anomalies during the eclipse. In this case the folklore was essentially accurate. Near the peak at midnight, we observed localized visual warping, not unlike the heat distortion you’d see in the desert. An eerie otherworldly music. Our instruments started giving wildly variable readings, and then the portal appeared as a dark disc floating just above the summit. After recording our observations we started assembling a series of mirrors mounted on poles so we could peer though the portal without approaching it. Then a diminutive wizard appeared with a wand in each hand. I now understand that this is Mozu and she’s notorious, but at the time I had no idea. “Don’t just stand there afraid! Aren’t you curious?" She said, and then she leaped into the portal. We stared at each other dumbfounded. We were just starting to consider the merits of approaching the portal more closely, when it disappeared and all readings returned to normal. Thus our expedition was a failure due to Mozu’s interference, and her criticism is entirely unfair. It wasn’t fear that made us stand there: it was our adherence to the proper protocols. She has a lot of nerve questioning our curiosity.

School inspector’s report: Glowing runes were left on four doors in the first year dormitory. Initial attempts to dispel them resulted in explosions requiring new windows throughout the first floor. The runes read as follows: on one door “because you taunted me.”; on another, “because you wouldn’t even say my name right.”; on another, “because you cheated, and they blamed me.”; and on the last, “because you felt big, by making me feel little.”

From House Melkior: To the Gray Glove, pass this along as you see fit.

This is a dead end, utterly useless, and you know I can find something useful in almost anything. Mozu is stealing items of power from the powerful. That much is clear, she must have a reason and a purpose. The way to understand the effect is to analyze the cause. So, I investigated Mozu’s home village firsthand. On my death bed, I will beg to have those days returned to me. To call Mozu’s village, and indeed the entire Scholyar Valley “Pastoral” - well, it does injustice to pastures. The people there are simple farmers who take a perverse pride in being disconnected from affairs of empire. They roll their eyes at anything from beyond their valley. They measure time by the season, and the height of excitement is harvest festival, when their orchards bear fruit. Yes, Mozu’s people actually celebrate when a tree tries to reproduce itself. They have no interest in the noble houses, no interest in empire, no interest in soldiers. While disguised I asked about the study of magic. They called it a “fad”. Mozu has made many powerful enemies in the last year, but I’d rather have her list of enemies than these simple country bumpkins as friends and family. Whatever she’s up to, there’s no evidence for it here. – The Broken Spoke.

Skin lore[edit | edit source]

The Wand Thief: If she was going to be a wizard, Mozu wanted to look the part.

Chromatic Magic: Only his fashion sense was open-minded. The Arcanist had no interest in a goblin apprentice.
Fair and Square: The White Wizard's style was understated, but his wands held great power.

Eternal Master: For the briefest moment, Mozu felt uncertainty, reluctance, even fear... Then she recovered and ran towards the glowing crystal shard.

The Raider's Armory: As Mozu grew, she grew more creative in her choice of wands.

The Knight's Armory: "They talk so much of valor, then wear so much armor. How's this? Do I look brave now?" - Mozu
The Duke's Armory: "The door was locked and bolted! On my honor milord." - Harwin, Former Captain of the Guard.

Weapon Skin lore[edit | edit source]

Blessings of Aurion: The priests of Aurion were seeking heroes willing to take up arms in their name. So Mozu took some.

Eternal Light: The gift of Eternals came from the city of Gods itself. Only the worthy could wield them.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • When you upgrade Arcane Vortex, you can deflect projectiles while also granting haste, which is super powerful. Upgrade quickly.
  • Mozu can deal huge, amazing damage with Magic Bolt, so if you hide behind terrain or other features, you can deal some serious damage while hidden.
  • Magic Bolt takes a period of time to charge, so you can pre-load it by hitting the air before your first attacks.
  • Dimension Door is a great, easy escape skill, but remember that you have to touch terrain or the ground in order to teleport - it can't be used in aerial combat.
  • Manage your stamina or you're going to be knocked down extremely fast.
  • Deploy the Arcane Vortex in front of your allies and in close areas to negate enemy skills and movement.
  • Don't be afraid to run, as you honestly can't deal with much damage by yourself.
