Past News
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!

Note: In January 2006, NexusAtlas moved to a new server and a new ISP. In that process the software that manages our news archives dropped its links. We do not know exactly why that happened nor are we able to fix it without support from someone who knows the software. Therefore, we are calling news prior to March 2006 "Archived News" and it can be accessed by the link below.

The Vortex Strangness Continues
Posted by: AllyGator -- 5:02 AM EST

There has been yet another report of unusual happenings in the Vortex. On October 13th, we reported that multiple bosses were spawning! Now they seem to be following players outside of the caves. There have been rumors of this before but now we have proof. Could this be merely a Halloween trick mug is pulling or a precursor to some dreadful event? In the meantime, be careful where you go AFK, the Vortex may not be safe!

Subpath Fair and Buyan Day of Honor
Posted by: AllyGator -- 9:00 PM EST

This was a very busy day. The Buyan Imperial Army Hosted "A Day of Honor" to praise and honor the hard working and dedicated soldiers that bravely serve and protect this glorious Empire. Inzen was busy hosting Horse races and later there was a memory game that Princess Lasahn attended.

There was a nice turn out for the Subpath Fair and everyone had fun. They all had amazing booths but my favorite is shown below. It is properly spooky!

Sacred Grove Entrance Changes
Posted by: Vini -- 1:02 PM EST

Just a while ago, Mugoman has announced the opening of the new entrance to Druid's Sacred Grove in wilderness. The coordinates to the new grounds are 173, 218 and the easiest way to reach it is by walking from north Kugnae gate to wilderness then go left just next to the fountain there.

Some other locations might be shifted sometime soon as well, seems Awen is on the move.

Haengsa and Eaengsa
Posted by: AllyGator -- 11:35 AM EST

Haengsa is hanging out in the Haunted Woods like the rest of us but the spooks there have him a bit frightened. The same can be said for his twin brother, Eaengsa in Tangun. Tangun has spooks wandering about freely and scaring all of the young ones. Amazingly both brothers want one set (hat and coat) of each costume because their wives are complaining about needing costumes. Both of them hate needles too! So bring one of each costume to them to get an award. Images of the costumes are pictured on news for October 17, 2007. Give the costumes in this order:

Cat, Dog, Rabbit, Panda, Monkey, Sheep, Pig, Frog, Yeti, Bloody mary, Dark poet
~ thanks to WikidWind for the order

Haengsa gives a gift of 5 pirate coins.
Eaengsa gives a gift of a Pumpkin head.

* Hint to players who are having a difficult time with the cost of the Halloween quest. Do Haengsa's quest, get the pirate coins and buy a Blood. If you still need cash, give Haengsa costumes on another character, buy a Blood and sell it to raise cash to buy 20 Fine cloth.

Karma Bug
Posted by: AllyGator -- 11:20 AM EST

There was a reset a few minutes ago because the NPC Grandma Tii was bugged and people could receive the karma bonus more than once. GM mug came online to fix the problem and a reset completed that fix. Here is his post on Community:

If you did this twice you need send ticket right away.

If you did this more than twice you can send ticket but you will lose all karma on your account.

Bug abuse will not be tolerated in my game.

[signed in blood]

Halloween 2007
Posted by: AllyGator -- 9:41 AM EST

A bit thank you for the efforts of LOTS of players here is the walk through for the event:

(See Tangun alternative below)

1.) Say "Grandson" to Grandma Tii, north of south gate Kugnae.

2.) Go to the Haunted Woods (one entrance is west of east gate, Buya), and find Yim at (240, 210) and say "Grandma Tii".

3.) Go back to Grandma Tii and say "Yim".

4.) Go to (150, 5) in the Haunted Woods (Buya 118, 89) and say "Yim" to the Invisible Friend behind the cave.

5.) Go back to Yim and say, exactly:
"Doo doo dee doo, rat tails in my shoe."
(You need the period!)

6.) You now must scare the Invisible Friend by saying "BOOGIE BOOGIE BOO!" to him while wearing a Monkey hat and a Pig suit.

7.) You now must bring the Invisible Friend some things. Here is his clue, verbatim:

"Bring me things to make funny. You will need funny hat, something to cut, something to fix, something for me to eat, something that shine, something new for me to wear."

You must have in inventory (items will be taken) the following items:
Sheep Hat
Stack of (20) Fine cloth.
Stack of (100) Rat meat.
Spring Robes
50,000 Coins.

The reward is a giant pumpkin head! (This item will remain after Halloween)

8.) Go back to Yim (240,210) and say "Hyuck! Hyuck! Hyuck!" Pumpkin head must be worn or else Yim won't respond to you.

9) Go back to Grandma Yii and say 'Invisible friend' and get way-cool legend mark -- 'Tricked Yim with Terror of the Pumpkin' and some karma (SandPaper with the finish)

"The Tangun Alternative" by Tilak(())

You can also get the pumpkin head, but not the mark, with a registered character under level 50 by seeking out Haengsa. You have to collect a few costumes that Haengsa will tell you about.

("Ribbit" is frog) (Bamboo is panda) (Wiggles nose is bunny) etc

WARNING: If you say 'Invisible Friend' more than once, you'll get karma over and over but that's a bug. Don't get jailed for bug abuse folks!

~ thanks to Dippie

October 16th Reset!
Posted by: Sebelle -- 2:07 PM EST

Server reset, Tuesday, October 16, 2007
The Nexus servers were reset with the following changes:

Halloween is here!

When the winds become cooler and the days become shorter, mischievous spooks are out and about, or so we think. Speaking of mischief, it seems that a worried Grandmother is looking for her grandson who naively chose to sneak off to find his “invisible friend.” If adventurers assist her, they are promised a few scares (and laughs, at that).

Haengsa is back with a new quest! Was he really missing?

Eaengsa! It’s Haengsa’s twin brother!!!! He is in the Tangun asking for help from the younger players. He has a very special quest for them!

You can now say Trick or treat to the following merchants: Ox, Taur, Rotah, San-Tae, San-Tei, San-Ten, San-To, San-Tu. In Tangun you can speak with Chinagada and Pegi.

Players are now able to visit the face changer to get new eye color. Please keep in mind not all eyes will work the same. We will look into making some of the eye look better with color in the future.

The Blue moon shifts and the Ancient training ground closed its doors again in the hopes of returning stronger.

Clan, Army & Ministry additions and fixes:
* Alizarin clan receives new Clan mark.
* Nagnang Army receives new Clan mark.
* Minor update for Sun Moon

Clan, Army & Ministry additions and fixes:
* Druid entrance moves in the Wilderness.

* Minor updates for item shop there will be a release later today.
* Typo fix in Tangun.
* Bug that changed your hair color when you changed hair style is fixed.
* Other minor updates for Halloween.
* Reduced drop rate of some items in Tangun due to most of them staying on the floor and causing crashes to the server.

Vortex Madness!
Posted by: AllyGator -- 6:03 PM EST

The Tribes are getting rougher with more bosses. The Water Tribe has two and now the Hunter Tribe has THREE! Why is this happening? Has something caused a change? Is it just a bug or something more sinister?

Hunter Tribe Has Two Bosses
Posted by: AllyGator -- 8:09 AM EST

STOMPER sent in this screenshot showing how the dastardly Hunter Tribe is now seeking to destroy those who enter their domain. Since he was able to correspond with me, I believe his group made it out alive. Now is the time to strike back to double our fun.

End to Realm Centering
Posted by: AllyGator -- 8:00 PM EST

This handy little feature came out a few weeks ago but it's not known by all. Finally we've got an easy way to see the center of events from the edge of a crowd or expand our vision in an Elixir without dying!

Hold down the Control key and press any arrow key to move the your screen view. This little warrior has moved her view past the edge of the map!

Have fun with this and thanks to KRU for making this available.

New Spy Elder
Posted by: Vini -- 8:59 PM EST

I have sad news to all Creative Nexus fans. Yesterday, the KSG Premier, Phalance, has retired from his position. He who was the Spy elder since Yuri 71 has stepped down in favor of Mr. Thou.

What would this have to do with Creative Nexus? Well, for those who don't know, Thou is our very own Nagnag from Nexus Atlas and owner of the affliated site, Creative Nexus, since he'll be dedicating more of his time to Spy guild now, we'll lose a bit of his talents to his dedication to his path.

Sounds worth it, afterall KSG will have a wonderful elder to honor all the past ones. Nexus Atlas is proud to congratulate Spy Premier Thou on his new position and is sure that he'll handle it very well.

Special thanks to Phalance for all his years of work and dedication to the path, all the things he has done for it, including finally getting spies to be allowed to join Koguryo Royal Army.

An Imperial Affair
Posted by: Gilley -- 1:37 AM EST

Imperial Minister Jolie of Buya hosted the Grand Opening of the Buyan Fairgrounds today with an Imperial Fair followed by a Defender Ceremony. Amidst shades of gold, Buya along with her neighboring kingdoms, enjoyed festivities hosted by various clans and subpaths. The mood was joyful as prizes were freely given and laughter was heard through out the booths.

The Fairgrounds entrance is near the East Gate of Buya in the Islets. A quiet looking woman with the simple name of 'Fair Lady' will lead you there. Inside the layout is much as the traditional Kugnae Fairgrounds with bright colors and newer stone booths. Flags wave freely in the breeze.

Emperor Senshi and his daughter, Princess Lasahn graced each booth with a visit. The Emperor was a little wary of participating in the games even with his soldiers standing by but it was nice to see them enjoying themselves, nonetheless.

Many Buyan Clans and Tribes were out supporting their Ministry. The BIA is shown here proudly displaying their colors and their decorating abilities. Nice job, Soldiers.

So many events were happening at the same time that many booths had to wait for others to finish. Here the Celestial Tribe of Buya was anxiously awaiting their next round of players.

The Royal Revels Readings were hosted in the Imperial Ministry's Booth with many poets reading their prose. Even with the close quarters, Poems was impressed with the enthusiasm shown in the readings.

Later that evening, a Defender Ceremony was held so Princess Lasahn could mark the newest Defenders of her Buya, Shining Jewel of the East. It was definitely a day to be remembered for many Hyuls to come! Thank you, Buya and the Imperial Ministry!

The following are those who earned the Empire's blessing:
Buyan Imperial Army - Bladester, YanDaMan, Flower
Heavens - Allygator
Phoenix - winroute
LostKingdom - santa
Dharma - Lacey
Elendhirin - Ivanko

The newest Affiliate of the Sovereign is Muckish!

Congratulations to all who have served their country, and the newest Affiliate for extending his hand in friendship!

A Blue Moon?!
Posted by: Gilley -- 12:28 AM EST

Stars aligning...A blue gleam aligns from the moon...

Did it begin? The prophecy found in the scrolls? King Mhul was at East Gate surrounded by the KRA when the immense blue bears began to appear. Surprised citizens attacked the creatures who dropped talismans, then disappeared. Different colors with unusual names, these talismans were discovered to provide strong spells for fighting. Vengance cast Amber Flames, Wind Strike cast Whirlwind and Dark Despair cast Desperate Attack.

Soon, word spread of other creatures appearing in Nagnang and Buya, also dropping these mysterious talismans. King Mhul mentioned the wilderness as a possible area for the next attack. Everyone took off on their mounts directly and found a newly made bridge near the Druids' grove. Soon Prince Kija and Princess Lasahn joined the spectacle and watched as mutant deer with glowing eyes began to emerge. The citizens once again took the offensive to destroy the odd beings. More talismans were left. What manner of creatures are these? Where will they appear next? What is beyond the rickety bridge?

Only time and the full alignment of the blue moon will tell.

Feral Berserk
Posted by: AllyGator -- 7:43 AM EST

Posted on Community Board tonight!

Credit goes to 'TigerTK' for discovering this. The spell was -not- available at level 80, but could be anywhere from 81-87.

Nexus Atlas verified this spell can be learned at Level 83 at Buya's Warrior Guild. Damage has not been verified yet. Boadiga is an unaligned warrior, Ohaeng warriors cannot learn this spell and there is no equivalent spell.

Cost to learn: Fox blade, Maxcaliber, 20 Ambers, 5000 Gold

Mana cost: 600

Damage was higher than normal berserk.
His vitality: 12,529
His damage : 10,755
If this is purely vita based, that would mean that his vitality mod was something near .858x

I don't seem to be able to learn an Ohaeng version of this spell. He also said when he learned this spell, 'Feral Berserk', his older 'Berserk' spell was erased from spells. He is unaligned.
