Strategy

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 basic attack, [LMB/RT] 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 this attack 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 a direct DPS, you can do a huge amount of damage with Mozu.

You can do this by preparing before-hand, making sure to pre-arm the LMB/RT attack before you get into combat. A recommended game plan is to drop into a fight with a pre-armed Magic Bolts, deal as much damage as you can, then use the [E/RB] DIMENSION DOOR to "get out of dodge" before you take too much heat.

, and understanding the cooldown for Dimension Door is extremely important: If you're caught without either, you might as well sit still, because you might as well be dead, regardless of how effectively you use your other skills or how many allies you have to help.

Tips and Tricks

  • Mozu can deal huge, amazing damage with [LMB/RT] MAGIC BOLT, but as a ranged caster, she is made to stay in the backline, behind tanks, bruisers, and melee fighters. Never be at the front of your team unless you have an [Q/LB] ARCANE VORTEX to protect you and [E/RB] DIMENSION DOOR to warp to safety.
  • [LMB/RT] MAGIC BOLT takes a period of time to charge, so you can pre-load it by hitting the air before your first attacks.
  • Assassins will try to dive you and kill you quickly. If they are on the enemy team, it is best to save [E/RB] DIMENSION DOOR for when they try to jump on you, and use Cantrip of Disruption upgrade of [RMB/LT] ATTRACTOR BEAM to INTERRUPT
    Disrupts any skills in use and very briefly slows the target's movement.

    their damage abilities.
  • Deploy [Q/LB] ARCANE VORTEX in front of your allies and in close areas to negate enemy skills and movement.
  • [E/RB] 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
