AdventureQuest Worlds Wiki

Noxus is a character in AdventureQuest Worlds.



Noxus was the Dean of the Necromancer University in Doomwood. He plotted to take over the world using an army of the undead.

After he slew Lynaria Alteon's dragon ally Victorious and turned it into a Dracolich, Sepulchure sought out Noxus and had him convert it into a fortress. Noxus did that while Sepulchure fought off the Lightguard Paladins. He was also present when Lynaria caught up to him following Sigrid Sunshine's defeat.

He manipulated the necromantress Vayle into thinking that following his orders will help her bring her brother back from the dead. In reality, he controlled her as she was fused with the Darkness Orb, and secretly plotted to kill her to get the orb to present to Sepulchure. In the end, he was slain by the DragonFable players, Artix, and Vayle.

However, Noxus wasn't truly gone. His ghostly voice was heard by Sally which led her to the Necropolis and learned all about the art of necromancing. Sally became the new Mistress of the Necropolis and the new Supreme Necromantress of the Tower of Necromancy. To repay Noxus, Sally brought him back to life as a Lich and Noxus returned to his position at the Necromancer University. Noxus and Sally found an ancient evil within the Necropolis and uses it's power to create Vordred.

Noxus and Vordred stormed Shadowfall with their army, they confronted Gravelyn where it was revealed that he created her father's army and his flying fortress. Noxus then uses his magic to take control of Gravelyn's army. Gravelyn ended up Noxus and Vordred's prisoner when placed in slave clothes until the heroes came to rescue her. Noxus had Vordred command his army to surround the heroes so that he can finish her off. When Sally contacts Noxus about ArcAttack being sighted in Doomwood and sends Vordred back to Doomwood, Gravelyn revealed that she had one undead loyal to her as the head of Chuckles knocks Noxus off of the throne and frees her. Gravelyn then commands her soldiers to let the heroes pass so that they can fight Noxus. Once Noxus was defeated, Gravelyn removed Noxus' head and placed Chuckles' head onto Noxus' body. She plans to have Cysero convert Noxus' head into a weapon for her to use. Before sending the heroes back to Doomwood to fight Vordred and intercept Artix, Gravelyn gives the heroes a special amulet that belonged to her father so that it will help them in the battle against Vordred.

In Gravelyn's ending following the defeat of Vordred, she uses the Noxus Head Staff (which was made from Noxus' skull). Gravelyn gives Artix an offer to side with her upon knowing that Artix is actually the Champion of Darkness which he declines. Gravelyn then vows to finish what her father started once Drakath is defeated. Before leaving, Gravelyn gives the players the Noxus Head Staff.

It was later revealed that Capt. Beard was associated with Noxus at one point.

Gravelyn later wakes up from a nightmare revolving around Sepulchure as the Noxus Head Staff tells Gravelyn that she probably had a vision of the future. Noxus then tells Gravelyn that her father was fit to lead the undead armies of the Shadowscythe as Gravelyn was surprised that Noxus knew Sepulchure before he became a Doom Knight and states that if she wants to know more about her father, she should look into the Forbidden Vault of the Necropolis. Gravelyn is later captured by Chaos Vordred and Sally claims the Noxus Head Staff as Noxus orders Chaos Vordred to kill the heroes. When Gravelyn's last words were her wishing that her father was here, the tomb of Queen Lynaria grants her wish and revives Sepulchure. When Noxus orders Chaos Vordred to stand down, Chaos Vordred goes on the attack only to be easily destroyed by Sepulchure as Sally and Noxus bow before Sepulchure. Gravelyn detects that the Sepulchure present isn't the real Sepulchure. The tomb of Queen Lynaria Alteon states that Sepulchure was killed by Drakath where there is no coming back from death. Drakath ends up warping reality to make it look like the Sepulchure has returned from the dead.

After reality is restored, Sally and Noxus accept Gravelyn as their leader. Nulgath and Dage the Evil catch up to the group as Gravelyn tells them, Sally, and Noxus that the Shadowscythe Army will hunt down Drakath and make him pay for what he did to Sepulchure. Gravelyn then orders Sally to rebuild Vordred in order to use him against Drakath.
