Nuxia is a playable hero class in For Honor.

OverviewEdit

Nuxia was the name given to female bodyguards during the civil war. These skilled slayers usually roam the battlefield on their own terms, clawing and gutting prey with their hook swords.

ArmorEdit

The default armor consists of a metal cuirass with cloth and lamellar faulds held together by a belt. Sleek metal pauldrons, rerebraces, and bracers leave very little unprotected on the arms. They also wear a headband on their head.

WeaponEdit

Hook Swords- Versatile swords that possess a standard sword blade, but feature unique bladed guards, and hooks at the tip of their blades.

  • The voice actress for the Nuxia is Toronto actress Alli Chung.
  • The quote for Echo Strike is a Chinese figure of speech. Literally translated it means "I will take you away." Figuratively, it is used to say "I will send you to hell."

Fighting StyleEdit

The Nuxia is an agile fighter wielding dual hookswords. She has great abilities to isolate opponents into a duel situation, and then uses a barrage of attacks to strike them down. She can take advantage of defensive opponents, using her offensive "Trap" ability to take down enemies who are blocking or parrying.

  • Difficulty: Hard
  • Unique ability to Trap enemies
  • Fast Attacker

Special CapabilitiesEdit

  • Trap: special attack type that only succeeds when the opponent blocks/parries/deflects; missed and landed traps count as chain starters
  • Quick Dodge Attacks and displacing Heavy Finishers
  • Powerful counterattacks after a Parry or Deflect

MovesetEdit

Hero SpecificEdit

  • Traps - Glass Waltz and Jade Ballet are Trap moves. Traps are moves that only hit opponents who are performing a Block, Superior Block, Deflect, or Parry in the same direction of the Trap. Traps do not work on Block/Parry Reaction (the Full Block/All Parry gained after a successful Block or Parry respecitvely).
    • Initiation - Traps are initiated by pressing MMB (PC), X (XB1) or □ (PS4) during the start-up for any Heavy Attack to go into Glass Waltz or the start-up of a Zone Attack for Jade Ballet.
    • Trap Effect - When successful, the target of the Trap will be pinned briefly, dealt damage and knocked back. If struck with Jade Ballet, the target will instead be knocked to the ground, pinned for longer and dealt increased damage.
    • Trap Whiff Opener - If Nuxia's Trap misses, the Trap attempt will count as a Chain Opener, allowing Nuxia to perform a Chain Light or Heavy in Song of the Moon.
  • Chain Starters - Any of the following moves can replace the first strike in Song of the Moon: Crescent Jab, Crescent Step, Goddess Blitz, Echo Strike, Mirror Raid, and Glass Waltz.
  • Heavy Finisher Manipulation - Successful hits with a Heavy Finisher will briefly pin your opponent as Nuxia displaces them. Left Heavy Finishers will displace them to the Right. Top Heavy Finishers will displace them behind Nuxia. Right Heavy Finishers will displace them to the Left.
  • Zone Attack Cancel - You can replace any hit in Song of the Moon with a Zone Attack to end the chain. Zone Attack can be canceled into Jade Ballet or canceled with B (XB1), ◯ (PS4) or E (PC).
  • Defense: Reflex - Your Guard Stance only remains active for a limited time, lasting one second.
  • Deflect - Deflect by dodging in the direction of an incoming attack just before impact. Deflect can be followed-up with Echo Strike.
  • Revenge Mode - Boosts Damage and Health. All Attacks are Uninterruptible. Parry and Throws knock enemies down. Attacks are Auto-Parried on activation.
  • Renown - Earn more Renown in 1v1 fights, by killing enemy Heroes, and getting killing streaks to unlock your feats in a match.
