Drox, the Warlord is one of the Elderslayers / Conquerors of the Atlas. He serves as one of the end-game bosses of the Atlas. The boss fight itself has 8 different levels, based on the player's current Atlas Awakening level. It is colloquially known as A1 Drox through A8 Drox.

Items influenced by the Warlord have a yellow icon on its header Warlord-item-symbol.png and have unique Warlord modifiers.

Encounter

Players must first spawn a Conqueror within the Atlas using the steps in the Atlas quick guide. Then talking to Kirac and Zana will open a portal to the Conqueror's citadel. Defeating the map boss will open a portal to the Conqueror's arena, where they must fight Drox.

The arena is a cross-shaped area.

Tips

  • Players can destroy the banners to reduce the difficulty of the fight.
  • Monsters often enter the area from the 4 edges of the arena.

  • Constant mobility during the fight is recommended.

Lore

Main page: Drox's journals

Drox's journals are clickable lore items dropped each time you defeat Drox.

From Zana:

I've seen my fair share of combat, Exile, but never have I seen someone more comfortable on the battlefield than Drox. Though he was not our leader, he was our commander. When an impossible decision had to be made in the midst of battle, somehow, Drox always found the right path forward. He led us through numerous situations we thought fatal with an unflagging warm grin that let us know he believed in us.

But at some point, almost imperceptibly, Drox stopped making decisions for the group, and started focusing only on his new dream. His smiles turned to scowls. He remained fixated on this mad idea of building a kingdom in the Atlas. He became cold to Veritania and distant to the rest of us. All his efforts went towards securing the Atlas and establishing law. His obsession was putting us in danger, and that is something I could not tolerate.

When I led the group away from him, he either didn't notice, or didn't care.
