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.

November 26th Server Reset
Posted by: Hatiki -- 7:28 PM EST

Server reset, Monday, November 26, 2007
The Nexus servers were reset with the following changes:

Seems they have gathered up the turkeys and gotten them safely back aboard the boat. DokSoo sends his thanks to all those who helped him prepare food for his family and the Emperor of Buya.

A blanket of snow has fallen upon the Kingdom of the Winds. Some areas are hit harder than others. Shop keepers get ready for the holidays pulling out decorations and singing happy songs.


Tree of Reflections - East Gate Kugnae

The item shop now has winter coats and scarves to keep you warm. I am sure more winter items will be coming out in the near future.

Clan, Army & Ministry additions and fixes:
* Finishing touches have been added to the new area for the Buyan Ministry.

Wild Turkeys Take Over!
Posted by: AllyGator -- 2:22 AM EST


The days are cooler and the nights are longer. The frozen air fills my lungs as I make my way to the Islets. What on earth was that? A turkey coming out of that door? It looks as if there was some sort of ship that crashed and there are wild turkeys everywhere. I walk inside the land of DokSoo and he greets me with a friendly smile. "How are you today?" I ask and he waves to me and asks for my help. He wants to prepare food for the Emperor of Buya. "Well of course I will help!" I said with a smile. I wonder what lies in store for me this brisk felt day.

Walk Through

1) Find the hut at Islets 18,18

2) Go in to the Preparation Room in DokSoo's Land and say "Hello" to DokSoo (blue NPC).

3) Kill turkeys in the rooms until you gather 30 turkey meat. (Hug the right walls in each room to get to the next room.)

4) Return to DokSoo and say "Turkey meat" and he will take the turkey meat. Then he tells you to help his friends...

5) Say "DokSoo" to YunTi (Male NPC on the left) and he will ask you what he can use to make dumplings. Say "Beef" to him and he will ask for some. He will take 30 Beef (lean beef doesn't work).

6) Say Pork to him and he will ask for some. He will take 30 Pork (rare pork does not work). He now has everything ready on his end and asks you to help his sister YanYi.

7) Go to YanYi (female npc on the right) and say "YunTi." She asks you to go farming for rice, wheat, and peas. Say "Rice" to her first. This is followed by saying "Wheat" and then "Peas". You need 25 each of Rice, Wheat and Peas.

8) Go to Yim in the center of Clear Lake (5th room of DokSoo) and say "YanYi" to him. He will say he's gathering water and needs you to get some for him. Say "YanYi" a second time and he will simply say "Some water please!"

9) Say "I have the full water jugs"
He will take 5 full water jugs.

10) Go to DokSoo and say "I have finished helping you."
You will get to choose between different colors of remembrance garbs or gowns.

~ All eggs in the event will morph you in to a turkey.

Rooms:
DokSoo's Land (Preparation Room)
Green Grounds
Farming Lands (yes you can farm there while dodging roosters)
Slaughter Room (pens with bulls and hogs for pork and beef)
Clear Lake (Yim)


Happy Thanksgiving!

    The Wisdom Star's Return!
    Posted by: AllyGator -- 7:45 PM EST

    The Whispering Winds posted today:

    King MuHyul's astrology and alchemy advisor has heralded the return of the Wisdom Star. In one moon's time, the three celestial minors will be in alignment and the Wisdom Star will wake from its slumber, bathing us all in its pure light.

    Scholars and swordsmen alike have always anticipated the coming of the sacred star, as with its light comes good fortune. When the star finds its niche in the night sky, its radiance envelops mortal minds and sharpens their wits, thus inducing all walks of life the ability to gain better experience on the challenges that reside in hunting lairs.

    Some of the greatest achievements of the past were made during the high rise of the Wisdom Star, and now, once again, the opportunity to reach great goals is nearing. Let us all rejoice in the Wisdom Star's return!

    ((The Wisdom Star will be returning on 11/15/07 and will fade away on 11/19/07 so get your accounts registered today!)

    Farming skill is here & Other Reset changes
    Posted by: Vini -- 7:33 PM EST

    A skill suggested and dreamed for many years is finally available to the citizens of Nexus to expertise in. Right at this moment a large number of new farmers are using their newly bought basic sickle and producing a lot of items. To buy one Ssal has opened a new market in Kugnae 111 137.



    How to farm?
    First must reach one of the farming fields. There's a few different ones:
    - Kugnae, south of Koguryo Palace
    - Woodlands, center of it, northeast of Ancient ruins


    To farm must be wielding a basic sickle as weapon.
    Just walk around the field within the reeds until you find a pop up. There's no need to drop and pick anything nor to swing your weapon around. Just walk walk and walk until you find the pop up which may take a while at the start.



    There's quite a few different popup types, but they're easy to know which option to get. Mostly the popup serve as a way to prevent autoing since the options randomly change positions from a try to another.



    Once you pick your choice, there is a low chance of picking the farming result. So far there are only 3 of them:
  • Peas
  • Wheat
  • Rice

    When the first swing of the sickle is successful, the person will receive the first level of farming mark:


    Along with this pleasant new option which didn't come much as a surprise to many who have been hearing Mug's sages lately, there's a list posted by him in Dream Weaver's board and Nexus Official website explaining the changes of today's reset:

    The spooks have left for the time being and Grandma Tii finally gets to leave for home with Yim at her side. She says thank you to all of you who helped her!

    Haengsa and Eaengsa will be back with more quests in the near future.

    Ssal has moved to the kingdom of Koguryo and with it he brings a new tool for farming. You might find some new items as well as a new legend mark!


    Clan, Army & Ministry additions and fixes:
    * Nagnang Army receives Admissions Chambers and Soldiers' Retreat. Merchants Hyo (Weaving, Smelting, Smith) and Saeng-seon (Fishing, Deposit/Withdraw, Remove Nuisance, Minor quest, Event announcement and Mass exchange).
    * Alizarin Clan receives new room Nirvana.
    * Nagnang army receives minor update.
    * Lost Kingdom receives new update to Lost Springs.

    Other:
    * Large additions for new Carnage area
    * Corrected color on the Gorevan angel wings
    * Made changes to some of the monsters in Woodlands so they no longer can be abused.


    Happy farming everyone!

    Posted by: AllyGator -- 2:42 AM EST

    Euphoria reports that the "strange" happenings in the Vortex are nothing unusual. He said that while he's never seen 3 bosses in one cave that there have often been 2 bosses since the Vortex opened. There is also a good chance of a boss following you outside if it is attacking you and you gateway.

    Sigh! Just when I thought there was a good mystery going.

    Thanks for information Euphoria!

    Free Trial expire chaos
    Posted by: Vini -- 1:29 PM EST

    Yesterday, the community of nexus have experienced moments of panic when trying to enter the kingdoms. All of a sudden the servers crashed and when trying to get back in, people received the inconvenient message saying their free trial had expired. When trying to check if they were unregistered in users list, people found also that such lists were all messed up as well.

    Situation like this happened with many people and scared hundreds for long long minutes. It didn't take long to be fixed but people are still in the dark about what really happened. Normally when things like this happen KRU makes an official note to try to explain what happened and usually gives some compensation. So far, nothing has been explained about this and looks like this would go unnoticed by major of community.

    In respect to all who suffered last night and gathered in Tangun waiting to be able to return to their normal lives in Nexus, we of Nexus Atlas are trying to collect most information as possible about this sad incident. So far, we've been informed that some people didn't have trouble to enter the kingdoms and others found their Kruna items on the ground when logged back. Suspect is that the crash and free trial problem was caused by problems with Kruna items. This is just a possibility and there's no way to confirm the veracity of it without hearing directly from KRU.

    Since Mug is on vacations, let's hope someone else there will care to explain Nexus what happened last night. Either way, Nexus Atlas is thankful for the fast correction of the problem by KRU part and is only trying to clear out what really happen.
