Server Reset Introduces Cave 11
Posted by: Vini -- 10:06 AM EST
   
Few hours ago the Servers of Nexus had a quick reset that served to adjust orbs effects, insignias requirements and big malga effect. Along with that two important chances were made which cannot be overlooked.

  • First one is related to Malevolent Clan Houses fighters. They seem to have been tweaked a bit in terms of how strong they were and now made the life of Sa san seekers a little less painful.



  • Second one is the introduction of the 11th event cave. So far past events in Nexus has had only up to 10 caves, the highest one being for Sa san. Now with the introduction of the 11th one for the re-opened Iron Dungeon, people are wondering if their almost 2 year wait since Oh san was first hinted/mentioned by Immortals is finally about to pay off.



    The Split stats seems to start between 2.6 mil vita / 1.3 mil mana and may go up to 3.499 mil vita / 1.749 mil mana accourding to sources. The correct number is still being calculated. Apparently cave 10 monster stats have also been tweaked a bit.

    Here's a copy of the Dream Weaver's board official release about today's reset.

    BOARD TITLE: Dream Weaver
    FROM: NexusTK DATE: 11/29
    SUBJECT: Quick server reset - Nov 28th*, 2016
    - Cost and duration adjusted. Applies to the Fragile Orb of Lethal Strike Ripple, Fragile Orb of Restore, & Fragile Orb of Heal for mage.
    - Restore & Mage heal orb, 3 days -> 7 days
    - LS orb duration stays same
    - WW orb removed
    - Pre L99: Insignia 10 -> 5, Gold 10,000 -> 20,000
    - L99 - Il: Insignia 40 -> 20, Gold 50,000 -> 100,000
    - Ee: Insignia 70 -> 35, Gold 100,000 -> 200,000
    - Sam: Insignia 100 -> 50, 150,000 -> 300,000
    - Sa: Insignia 130 -> 75, 250,000 -> 500,000
    - There is no big malga option for orb purchase
    - Iron Dungeon 11 opened
    - House fighter creatures adjusted

    *Subject of the post says Nov. 28th, but reset happened at 29th around 1am PST.

    If you would like to help finding out the correct numbers that being split cave 11 and end the split to only allow cave 11, submit screenshots with the changes. Multiple sources have helped us collect a lot of information, but they're not all matching. A special thanks to SilentS and LinuxKiddy for providing these screenshots.

    Wild turkey chase - Thrusday to Saturday
    Posted by: Vini -- 12:04 PM EST
       


    This year's Thanksgiving event in Nexus will be a bit different. Instead of a quest, community will have to face a wild turkey chase in Vale. Such hunts will go on from today until Saturday and some great drops may occur during this community hunt. The hunts will happen at different periods of the day each day.

    Here's a copy of the event poster as announced by Archon Primogen Alilolelotte on community board:

    BOARD TITLE: Community
    FROM: Alilolelotte DATE: 11/23
    SUBJECT: Turkey Vale Invasion
    Greetings, Community!

    It looks like the news of an eminent western holiday
    is driving wild turkeys out of their homeland
    and straight into our lands!

    These runaway birds appear to be taking refuge in the serene(?!) fields of Vale. While we sympathize with their plight, their overwhelming quantities are bringing disbalance into Vale's fauna. If we do not act fast, several of endogenous species of Vale wildlife can be gone for good!

    Sadly, these wild turkeys are not that easy to spot! Long travels taught them benefits of good camouflage and various other hiding techniques.

    So, the only way to success here is for us to combine forces! Gods and Men, unified as one. Together we shall be victorious! We will use our divine magic to bring wild turkeys out of their hiding spots, and you will use your might and skill to reduce their numbers!

    Come prepared, I heard a rumor that these wild turkeys stroke an Alliance with Mythic Roosters, so it is quite possible that they will have the support of Mythic dwellers when in danger.

    We shall attempt several attacks. I hope many of you will join in our cause!


    Wild Turkey Chase Schedule:

    THU - November 24th: 1:00 - 3:00pm EST
    THU - November 24th: 9:00p-11:00pm EST

    FRI - November 25th: 3:00 - 5:00pm EST
    FRI - November 25th: 8:00- 10:00pm EST


    SAT - November 26th: 2:00 - 4:00pm EST
    SAT - November 26th: 7:00 - 9:00pm EST


    United we stand!
    P.S. Event disrupters will be sent to shipwrecked island.

    Worried about the humans' insatiable hunger and greed, the turkey community has already started a new campaign: eat ham.



    Have fun everyone and enjoy the holidays!

    Rest in Peace Logorin
    Posted by: Vini -- 9:25 PM EST
       

    ♩ ♫ It's kind of hard with you not around; know you in heaven smilin' down
    Watchin' us while we pray for you; everyday we pray for you
    Till the day we meet again; in my heart is where I'll keep you friend
    ♬♪

    Nexus community has suffered another great loss past weekend. It has come to our attention that Logorin has passed away last Friday, Nov. 18th. This is a huge loss for the community overall, even though he hasn't been actively playing on past months, whenever he dropped by he would inspire people with his positive attitudes and dedicated heart. The Chongunate is in mourning as we all lost a brother, a leader and a true friend.



    For those who didn't know Logorin, he was Nexus' 5th Head Judge out of 6 who held that position (Hyul 34). He was also Primogen of Tiger clan for a brief period (Hyul 29), a Koguryo Defender (Hyul 21) and a Chongun Guide (Hyul 20) for some years. More than the positions he held, Logorin was known for his reliability. He was a person we always knew we could count with. He was always willing to help and his wisdom has multiple times been very resourceful. If a word could express his presence in our world it would be "solidarity".


    Flowers in honor of Logorin are being dropped in front of Justice Court at Kugnae and at top of Heavens's Ascent, Chongun's Immortals Gateway.

    A memorial is being organized to Logorin on December 3rd and more information will be available on community boards.

    New Minister of Nagnang
    Posted by: Vini -- 1:00 PM EST
       
    Last Wednesday evening there was a shift of leadership power at the Nagnang Ministry, commonly known as the "Eternal Order". After the kingdom's biweekly meeting, Minister Sieo stepped down from her position and appointed Wildhair has her successor to the civil government of Nagnang.



  • A short bio of the new nangen minister:
    Wildhair has a long story of administrative positions. Decades ago, she was appointed the second primogen of Phoenix clan, at their early days, was also the third Elder of the Shamans and served as Elixir Division Head in the past.

    Throughout her story, she has lived most of the time in Nagnang kingdom, she moved to the kingdom during the early days of Prince Kija's leadership and only was away from it for short periods to assist friends. At Nagnang she was council of The Forsaken clan and now is member of the Covenant clan. She also serves the local army, where she was awarded a Nagnang Medal of Bravery recently.


    "I hope to serve all the needs of Nagnang, its Clans and people. I plan to bring new changes to our kingdom, but still hold on to the traditions of others before me. I open the ministry to anyone interested in joining it and serving our kingdom's culture, history and traditions, no matter what their lifestyle is", announced Wildhair.

    Nexus Atlas congratulates Minister Wildhair in her new position and wishes good luck to Sieo on her new endeavors. Since in Nagnang the position is also known as "Sage", then Congratulations Sage Wildhair!

    Client Patch V.7.40 - Scavenge Competitive System
    Posted by: Vini -- 9:01 AM EST
       
    Servers were reset this morning to release the patch to client V7.40. It introduced a new competitive system called "Scavenge", which seems to be related to collecting scavenge bones from any regular hunts. The ones who obtain most of such bones during a set period get rewarded.

    Here's a copy of the Dream Weaver's post about this new release:

    BOARD TITLE: Dream Weaver
    FROM: NexusTK DATE: 11/16
    SUBJECT: Server & Client Patch - Nov. 16th, 2016

    We are trying out a new competitive system, Scavenge. Please provide feedback how you like the concept.

    The new 'ranking' is added to the menu. Please make sure you 'U'se the Scavenge bone after you pick up.

    Thank you.




    To access the scavenging hunting period and see the ranking of the scavenging races, click the Menu on bottom right corner of your screen.



    It will open a leaders board window in which you can see the duration period of such scavenge hunt. After then, prizes shall be awarded to winners and a new competition will begin.



    To check the list of prizes one can obtain, simply click RewardInfo button.



    Each scavenge bone is worth 10 points and their drop is rare. So this means you still have plenty of time to join this competition and claim one of the top 10 prizes.

    Recent Changes
    Posted by: LinuxKiddy -- 11:16 AM EST
       
    If you haven't been in the kingdoms lately, they have replaced the n-mail expiration system with a text within login.

    Interestingly enough if your about to expire soon you'll receive a popup as well during login.


    Seems like a lot more "modern" feature added, just can't wait for that free 2 play. =)
