Did you miss that important news story? Do you want to read what happened while you were on vacation. Here's where to get that info!

Our news software, Coranto, has a bug which makes it purge links to news articles more than two years old. What is left of programmers who volunteer their time to support this software do not know why this bug occurs. We manually index older news pages in our Archived News section.

Concerning our Downtime
Posted by: TSWolf -- 2:19 PM EST

I thank every one of you for being patient in our downtime this past week. There were a few problems at the server farm causing not only Nexus Atlas and Nexus Forums to be down, but every site on the network too (Including my personal sites).. so you can be sure I was in constant contact with our provider concerning the situation and he was very timely with me, allowing for a reasonable return to the way things were.

As you can see, the backup was VERY good this time, well above problems we'd had in the past. I would like to thank every staff member of Nexus Atlas who took the time to inform members of the community and kept in contact with me without nagging me to death.

I would also like to thank who sent over a representative to see the situation that was going on over here. It was nice to see Nexus sites working together, despite the small but insatiable appetite of some people to "start problems" in the website community that has co-existed for some years now. We were back online before could release the story.

In short -- NA is Back. NF is Back. The worst is finally over, and everyone here should be working hard for you again. They knew the server was up before even I did. Our host has been extremely helpful during this time, and I once again recommend them ( as a fine webprovider for an excellent price. Even in the messy situation we had, things went very smooth and the backups were perfect.

Anyway, Happy Halloween everyone! Enjoy the forums and such again.

Oh and one last thing.. We're not closing anytime soon, so don't listen to anyone who says differently.

Trick or Treat and more!
Posted by: Nagnag -- 12:13 PM EST

First off, Happy Halloween! Second, we apologize for the site being down. Seems our servers that we were hosted on caught fire, ironic for halloween eh?
Anyhow, a lot has gone on in Nexus (click one to jump to it):
Trick or Treating
Wandering, Deadly Spirits and Jieut the Lost Spirit.

Trick or Treat!!
It's back! And tons of goodies are in store! So far there are many tricks, and many treats. A few popular tricks are getting your head changed, rabbits spawn all around you, cast mass vertigo on everyone in the room, get sent to vale and lose your return spell, all your yellow scrolls and gateway. And as far as treats go, you can get Archon Orange dye, Lin-Skrae grey dye, Grin Green dye, a watermelon, and morph into an endless amount of neat morphs! Just go to any tavern in Koguryo or Buya and say "Trick or Treat"

Spirits are EVERYWHERE!
So you may ask the question, what's with these spirits? Well the one on the left is a Deadly spirit and the one on the right is a Wandering spirit. They come in pairs.

This walkthrough was posted by Flamethrower and compiled by many others [names credited at bottom].


Around every kingdom are ghost wanderers and spirits. Alot of you have been asking me how to kill them or if there are any tricks. They can not attack you unless you attack them. The Silver one is the boss, and each and every silver has their own designated brown minion. If you cant find it, get the silver one on you and gate. They will both spawn on top of you. Before killing the silver one, you HAVE to slay the brown one. The best way to do it is bare handed, get it against a wall and keep swinging, because it will rotate up and down. If you use weapons, then it will regenerate usually. The ghosts drop orbs as seen below. They drop relatively quickly, probably at the same percent as you get wool, at least for me. Good luck, and keep killing.

What you need exactly

Spirit's sight (1)
Spirit's soul (3)
Spirit's blessing (3)
Endless curse (1)
Eternal Darkness (3)
Enchanted life (2)


1) After getting these six orbs head to south gate Koguryo. Go southward and then take a right to go to the cemetary.

2) Go to Jieut (An NPC located in the North-East corner of the cemetary that looks like this: ) and say 'Looking'. There will be a pop-up saying:

"You want to know what I am looking for? ... Well, I will tell you if you bring me the gifts of the dead."

3) After you say looking, and you have the required orbs (Shown at top), CLICK on Jiuet again, and she will take your orbs. For me, she took 1 Sight, 3 Soul, 3 Blessing, 1 Curse, 3 Darkness, 2 Enchanted life.

4) There will be a pop-up saying:

"These should work just fine? You still wish to know what I am searching for?"

(Click next)

"I am searching for my home, to the spiritual realm. This area is the gap between worlds."

(Click Next)

"Let them know I am here. I will reward you if you do what I ask."


5) Go to Vale, and go to the Abyss which is located at
(X : 115 Y : 111).

6) Say "Spiritual realm" you will get a pop up,

"Foolish mortal. Do you think you are ready to venture in the spiritual realm? Only the wise and gifted can venture here... or the dead"

7) Say "Jieut" and you will get a pop up,

"Jieut.. he is lost again.. He roams your realm with understanding of where he is.. He is lost.. Send him here at once.."

8) Go back to Jieut and say "It's the black hole in vale"

"Mm?Vale, yes! Thank you for your help, silly mortal? Here I have no use for this anymore"

He will then give you 1,000,000 experience, (3) Spirit's Gift (Unknown so far), and the legend mark:
Aided the lost spirit to spiritual realm

9) Don't know yet

Thanks to everyone who helped put this walkthrough together!
And to everyone, a Happy Halloween!

Lost a non-BoD due to death?
Posted by: Conro -- 6:36 PM EST

Joomi is conducting a survey of the items lost during this client from non-player-kill death.

If you lost any non-break on death item through death, drop Joomi a letter with the subject 'Death bug', and explain what items you lost.

Although this hasn't been declared an offical bug from KRU Interactive, this survey can help decide that if this is a bug, why it's occuring.

As always, false claims will land you nothing but trouble, which can include punishment from the Kru Interactive team.

- Conro

EDIT: Please also include the location you were hunting, and how long you were hunting for as well in your NMail to Joomi!

Warning--Items and death
Posted by: LordDryn -- 10:44 AM EST


Whether an intentional feature of the new client or an associated bug, all sorts of items you wouldn't expect are dropping and even breaking on death.

For now it is highly recommended that you do not hunt with any item, regardless of BoD or durability, that you do not want to lose or cannot afford to replace.
Hopefully we will have some word from Kru soon as to whether this is intentional or not.

If you have lost items in this way (items that normally should not have broken), it might be wise to send a ticket in to Kru Interactive support; if this is a bug there is a very good chance that lost items can be restored.

"We are pleased to announce the release of Nexus 6.5. The new client offers a higher resolution, allowing you to see more of the game than ever before. Beautiful new graphics and a host of new features make this the best Nexus yet!"

On its heels, we have reset notes:

"The Nexus servers were reset with the following changes:

A bug causing some player's legend marks to not be displayed has been fixed.
Skeleton cave doors can now be entered properly.
Fox hunt horses made ridable.
Sage is no longer cut short.
The Barbarian scar legend mark will now prevent access to the Barbarian Circle.
Druids can now by dyed with Barbarian dye.
Alignment Sam san repair spells once again allow repairing of other players' items.
Cursed arrows and Flame arrows now prohibited from Elixir wars.
Woodcutting trees can no longer be made invulnerable by malicious users.

Note: We expect to be able to increase the speed of woodcutting once we are certain there are no major exploits with the new system. In the future, similar methods of resource collection will be added for the other gathering skills.

Minor Fixes:
Minor fixes for Lost Kingdom clan.
Minor fixes for Elendhirin clan.
Minor fixes for Dharma clan.
Minor fixes for Nagnang Ministry."
