Nuxia is a playable hero class in For Honor.

Overview

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.

Armor

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.

Weapon

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

Fighting Style

The Nuxia is an agile fighter wielding dual hookswords. Her Feats help her isolate opponents into a duel situation, as she can use a barrage of attacks to strike them down. She can also take advantage of defensive opponents, using her offensive "Trap" ability to take down enemies who try to block or parry her attack.

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

Special Capabilities

  • Can initiate a Trap during Heavies and Zone which punish opponents who remain too defensive, and leads back into chains even if missed
  • Quick Dodge Attacks and displacing Heavy Finishers
  • Multi-directional counterattacks after a Parry or Deflect

Moveset

General

  • Renown: Assassin - Earn more Renown in 1vX fights, by killing enemy Heroes, and getting killing streaks to unlock your feats in a match.
  • Revenge Mode - Boosts Damage and Health. All Attacks are Uninterruptable. Parry and Throws knock enemies down. Attacks are Auto-Parried on activation.
  • Defense: Reflex - Your Guard Stance only remains active for a limited time, lasting for one second.
  • Deflect - Dodge in the direction of an incoming Attack just before impact to Deflect it. Deflects grant a Hero access to unique tools.

Hero Specific

  • 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.
    • Special Knock Downs - Although the target of Jade Ballet will be knocked down during the pin, they won't be counted as being on the floor for moves such as Centurion's Eagle's Talon and Jormungandr's Hamarr Slam.
    • Trap Whiff Opener - Even if Nuxia's Trap misses, the Trap attempt will still count as a Chain Opener, allowing Nuxia to perform a Chain Light or Heavy in Song of the Moon.
  • Deflect Attack - After a Deflect, Nuxia can perform Echo Strike with the Light input. Uniquely for a Deflect move, this move is nct Unblockable but can come from any guard direction. As a result, it is not guaranteed if performed from the same side of a low recovery attack as it can possibly be blocked.
  • 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).
