Eye of the North

Zho is available as a henchman in Factions and in all Eye of the North outposts. Zho's eye was pecked out by the Black Moa in the Echovald Forest, when she was trying to save Nehdukah. In The Norn Fighting Tournament, she has a pet named Onyx; a Black Moa whose origin is detailed in Zho's Journal, despite Zho's unfortunate history with the species.

She is labeled as an "Archer Henchman" in Guild Wars Factions, and an "Interrupt Henchman" in Guild Wars Eye of the North.

Kinya Province (to Factions ranger characters):

"Call me Zho. I will be your trainer. I would much rather train than talk, so let us get to work.
What would you like to study first?"

Kinya Province (to Factions non-ranger characters)

"What is it? I only have one eye, and I use it to keep track of my own students. Move along and find your headmaster."

Kinya Province (to non-Factions characters)

"I am afraid I cannot help you. You are not a student here. And do not bother trying to become one...that honor is reserved for Canthans."

Monastery Overlook (during Snaring Course):

"Now is not the time to talk. Please concentrate on your studies."

Jaya Bluffs:

"This is not the time."

Zen Daijun (outpost):

"Master Togo seems very worried by this plague and that worries me. There isn't much that man hasn't seen. What did you need?"

Kaineng City town and outposts:

"We have come here to accomplish a task. All actions that go toward completing that goal are acceptable. All else is wasteful.
What do you need?"

The Jade Sea town and outposts:

"I may lack an eye, but my aim is true and my bow is stout. I know forests and plains like the back of my hand. Just let me know if there's anything I can do to help repair the damage the plague has done here.
What did you need?"

Divine Path:

"I will forever remember fighting by your side, <character name>."

Eye of the North[edit]

Far Shiverpeaks towns and outposts:

"Hail. Are you the traveler they speak of? I'm your guide. I was taught the ways of the wilderness since I was a child. You'll find no better."

Gunnar's Hold after defeating her in the Norn Fighting Tournament and not having a copy of Zho's Journal in inventory:

"Some traveller [sic] found my journal on the ground and returned it to me. Did it fall out of your pack? Don't worry! It's safe. Just a little dirty. Would you like it back?"
Ask Goodness! I hadn't even noticed it missing. Yes I would like it back! Thank you.
"You're welcome. And don't worry, I'm quite well known amongst the travelers. Should you misplace it again, come find me. I'm sure it will make its way back here."

Charr Homelands towns and outposts:

"Burned, charred, scorched. Such destruction wounds the land. She is but a shadow of her former beauty."

Tarnished Coast towns and outposts:

"Listen to the forest and smell the battle on the wind. This place is more alive than you realize."

Central Transfer Chamber:

"Do not think of caverns as a grave. Think of them as earth, and you are the seed. Soon enough, we will see the fruit of our labors."


"May the arrow of your life always fly true, and may you find your target at the end of flight."



Shing Jea Island:

"I was tracking the legendary black moa one cold day in the Echovald Forest. For weeks I had gone without catching even a glimpse of it when suddenly I heard its unmistakable call. Let me tell you there's no more chilling sound you can ever hear, it froze the very marrow in my bones. I crept along as silently as possible but too late I was, the evil beast has seen me and attacked. It was a horrible struggle; I barely escaped with my life and lost an eye in the process. Pray that you never see a black moa, and if you do, run for your life."
"It's easy to track these plague creatures, all you have to do is follow the trail of pus."
"Tigers and cranes are good pets. However, there are even more exotic animals to be found in the Echovald Forest, have you ever heard of the legendary black moa?"

Kaineng City:

"Be on your guard at all times."
"It is difficult to find tracks in a place such as this."
"The eyes of our enemies watch us everywhere."

The Jade Sea:

"The sooner the cursed monsters that wander these lands are put to rest, the better."
"These tracks are fresh. Be wary."

Eye of the North[edit]

"Hey, who hasn't heard the tale of the legendary black moa?"
"How did I get this eye patch? You don't want to know..."
"Never underestimate the value of a well-trained pet."
"Sheldon the Verminator... he was a worthy foe. You can't tame a wild beast like that."
"Yes, I only have one eye. No, I'm not a corsair. Any more questions?"

Battle quotes[edit]


"I grow tired of you, monster!"
"I will not rest until you no longer draw breath!"
"I won't let you escape."
"I'll give you a quicker death than you deserve!"
"I've got an arrow with your name on it!"
"I've got my eye on you!"
"In Melandru's name!"
"May my arrows strike you down where you stand!"
"Your life ends here!"

Eye of the North[edit]

"Enjoy your last moments, fool."
"Here. Put this apple on your head. I rarely miss."
"Hey, you. Catch!"
"How about I pierce you full of holes and see if you hold water?"
"I should mount your head on my wall after this."
"I've got a point to make... and it's headed for your eye."
"It's a good thing I brought extra arrows..."
"Keep your eye on the prize."
"Look alive!"
"Look at the coward fight!"
"Melee combat is so barbaric. I prefer to kill my prey from outside the splatter zone."
"Try and outrun this!"
"Try and run. I dare you."
"You call that fighting?"
"You talk too much. Let me take care of that."
