From the Dream Weaver board:

* The Wisdom will return to Nexus starting tomorrow, December 30 lasting until Wednesday, January 5!

Merry Christmas
Posted by: Vini -- 9:47 PM EST

It is Christmas in Nexus and during this time of the year is time to celebrate with friends and family. Therefore, after the Santa Mhul week of event, it’s time for community to start giving presents to each other. To wrap your gifts you can buy a Brown gift paper or Green gift paper along with a Ribbon at any kingdom messenger and there you have the option to “wrap gift”. The chosen item for wrapping must be at the “a” slot in your inventory.

As the winter snow came, the strange creatures from winter wonderlands were also freed again. Strangely enough, those creatures we thought only existed during our winter dreams actually exist and hit people around streets.

And, by slapping those, you may get one of their drops shown below here:

The holiday’s season also brought new options to Kruna Item shop, including a new mount: the Tiger mount! Besides the tiger mount there's also the Tiger/Tigress hoods and the White tiger hood. But what does Tiger have to do with christmas? Not much, but this year ((2010)) is the year of the Tiger according to Han Empire's calendar.

Here's the other new Kruna items, including the gift boxes which can be traded in the Nexus market.

Also, to celebrate the christmas season the Nexus Atlas crew has changed the theme of the site to winter and the top banner to animated Santa. Merry Christmas everyone & enjoy the holidays!

Good to see everyone rejoice! Happy Holidays to EVERYONE! Whatever you celebrate, we hope you have a great holiday season! :)

In spirit of the holiday season, we have added a wintery theme and a Christmas type banner to the homepage. We hope you enjoy, and thank Rachel for her excellent work (she made it!).


Holiday Free Win TAG sparks participation!
Posted by: Metro -- 6:31 PM EST
Cerixis and the Carnage department hosted a free win Holiday TAG last night. What was so special about this TAG? The participation! For the first time in a long time, there was over 150 people in a carnage event! People seemed to enjoy the free win, and we all had fun celebrating the holidays!

That doesn't tell all the tale (there were way more, but I kept it simple). It's great to see everyone come together as one, and just have some fun.

Today is Christmas, and to those who celebrate, Merry Christmas!

The joy of Santa Mhul season
Posted by: Vini -- 10:04 PM EST

Santa Mhul

Faster lines, easier locations, elves and many more peasants; this is what marked most this year of the beloved Santa Mhul event. To reach the cold snowy maze citizens had to talk to one of the snow helpers located at city gates or at Tangun’s entrance.

Frozen Grin

Once entering Cold Snowy Maze, community members had to walk the usual narrow walls to reach the northeast side, but of course, with time to stop for a view of Dream Weaver Grin still frozen on his ice block. Another snow helper threw them to a room called Frozen Walk which was much more simple, since it was pretty much going straight up. The sad part was that citizens couldn’t choose the line they would go to. So Citizens of Koguryo would end up going to Buya royal and vice-versa.

Recovered Princess Lasahn

Princess Lasahn made her first public appearance since her kidnapping by Xiou and seemed well recovered. She was accompanied by her Minister, Jolie, and some of her Imperial guards. King Mhul marked presence on the first day of the event, wearing his santa suit; he was well guarded by his KRA soldiers at the western corridor and seemed to be in a good mood, although his line was the longest to get through.

ChaeRi's helper

On the opposite side of the Holiday Workshop was Prince Regent ChaeRi and his guards from Nagnang. The interesting part for this year’s Santa Mhul was that whenever a Royal had to take a break, they could call in their elven helper. The helper would not greet people as well as Royals did, but at least people could click them from far and get their gifts even faster.

Special gift box

The Santa Mhul gave out over a thousand gift boxes and made hundreds of citizens happier this holiday week. Some lucky ones obtained rare items from their random gift boxes such as Flameblades, Lost mine diamonds, forsaken rings, non-bonded sun waistcoats, sun clothes, vortex hand items, vortex armors and even a diadem. Congratulations to all those lucky ones and, for the rest of us, let’s enjoy whatever we got, it’s a free gift and random, none should be crying over not “winning the lottery”, despite going to through the maze over 8 times.

Special thanks to the Royals, Archons and Dream Weavers for putting this event together. Enjoy your holidays!

Two New Primogens
Posted by: Vini -- 8:37 PM EST
Over the past weeks, two clans have had Primogen shifts that went unreported. First was Lost Kingdom that announced Primogen Corlenah will be leading the clan as Primogen Sparkyd stepped down from his position. In Pegasus clan, the previous Primogen Nihilism vanished and clan remained without leadership for over a month. Primarch Akikan was chosen to be the new head to lead the clan from them on.

Nexus Atlas would like to congratulate Primogen Corlenah and Primogen Akikan for their achievements and thank Sparkyd & nihilism for their services to their clan and the Kingdom of Winds overall.

Help the Palace Grinch restore the Holiday Spirit!
Posted by: Metro -- 11:24 PM EST
There is a Palace Grinch, and he is very grouchy! He needs your help to restore the holiday spirit!

The first step is to go to the grinch! He is located at (005, 014) in the Kugnae Palace.

Click on him. He will tell you that he is cold (no screenshot available yet, will post soon)

1) The grinch is cold. He needs something hot. Bring him "Hot Coal". You can get Coal by going to the Smith in Sanhae (top building, Sanhae is reachable via the Sanhae Pass - Once you are there, he is in the top building (, top top building). Say "Coal" to him, and he will sell you some for 20 coins. You do not need to buy the secrets from him, he will simply tell you that you need Flash dust. Get a Flash dust (buy them in the arenas where you enter Bloodlust, Elixir, etc, in the room where you go to make yourself alive again - Pyung Shop). Now, combine the Coal and the Flash Dust using "Shift I" which is the combination method in Nexus.

2) Return to him with the Hot Coal. He will now tell you that he is hungry.

Bring him a Soup bowl. You can get a Soup bowl at any of the inns, by talking to the shopkeeper.

3) Return to him with the Soup bowl. He will now tell you that he needs something that can be roasted on a fire. Bring him 5 Chestnuts. The easiest way to gather them is by going by the Elendhirin Hall in Buya (035, 044) and picking up the ones that are usually on the floor.

4) He will take them from you. Now, he will tell you he needs something for his love. This would be ROSES! Get half a dozen (6) Roses.

5) Return to him, and he will take the Roses. However, he has one more request. Bring him one Mountain Ginseng. He will take the ginseng from you.

6) Click the grinch one more time. He will give you a mark for helping to restore the holiday spirit!

Happy Holidays!

Be sure to thank the Koguryo Ministry for sponsoring this event, and making a fun filled Christmas for everyone! This was NOT a KRU event, it was sponsored by the Ministry.

    Royal decrees by M'hul and Senshi
    Posted by: Vini -- 9:43 PM EST
    Recently the monarchs of Koguryo and Buya have posted on the Chronicles of the Winds stating that citizens of their kingdoms should not help empower Xiou. The choice for those who have pledged to defend their nations should be obvious, but it seems some are not taking which side they're helping seriously and may face future consequences for choosing to align with the pirates, instead of trying to help rescue Princess Lasahn. Here's a copy of both posts by King M'hul and Emperor Senshi:

    Citizens of Koguryo,

    The kidnap of Princess Lasahn by those buccaneers raiding our shores must not be taken lightly. The treaty forged by us years ago constitute that no member of such Alliance shall give aid or succor to any organization harboring ill will and or participating in military action against member states.

    Therefore, helping empower Xiou's crew is considered a direct breech to that agreement and will not be tolerated. Koguryo defenders caught doing so will be also signing their will to not bear the mark and dye that assigns them bestowed honor by our kingdom.

    I hereby declare the act of piracy and conjuring forbidden by Koguryo and those found aligning with Buccaneers or Conjurers will be deemed enemy just like them. I've contacted Emperor Senshi and we've agreed to allow our armies to work against such enemies with no restriction on our both territories.


    King of Koguryo

    ~| A Message from the Imperial Sovereignty of Buya |~

    Citizens of Buya, Her Allies, and neighboring lands,

    It is with great distress that I have learned my daughter, Princess Lasahn, had been kidnapped by the very man I once granted her hand. I heard many years ago that Xiou was not only alive, but the son of the late Captain Bluestone. Now this man has come to our palace and, with the help of the Pirate conjurer, weakened my beloved daughter and kidnapped her.

    Citizens, the Imperial Sovereignty seeks your aid. Many of you have already pledged to work against Xiou. It is essential to the Princess' safe return that we gather as much information as possible about Xiou and his crew. Buya will not rest until this villain is taken down.

    I ask the help of all citizens of Buya, Koguryo, Nagnang and the wilderness dwellers to help restore Princess Lasahn's strength. Citizens of Buya whom decide to empower Xiou's crew instead of helping save their Princess will face heavy consequences.

    The pirates' nefarious plans must be stopped and the moment is now.

    Aino Senshi
    ~Emperor of Buya~

    Be careful with the choices you make.

    Event walkthrough (Part 4)

    Another dilemma. Which side are you on? The captive princess is the victim, but the pirates are only growing stronger every day. Their fate is in your hands. - Whispering Winds

    Continued Walkthrough -

    You should now return to WinSong at the Kugnae palace, who will ask for items to make a potion. (Note: You need to give the peg leg and pirate grog to Winsong before he'll start counting your pirate kills)
    1. He will first ask for a Peg leg.

    2. He will then ask for a Pirate Grog.
    3. He will have you kill 30 pirates (Nothing else!) on the Hausson boat.
    4. Now he wants a Parrot Feather.

    5. Then he'll have you bring a Totem helm.

        Press "S" in game, and the thing next to your "Nation" is your totem. That's the helm you'll need. (It can be bonded to anyone, so if you have 4 Ju jak characters, one of them can get the helms for the other 3)

  • Hyun moo: Bring 7k and a Fine cloth to Hyun moo shrine (North wilderness)
  • Chung ryong: Kill a Red wolf (often near barbarian cave) and bring 6k to the Chung Ryong shrine (East wilderness)
  • Ju jak: Bring Fine metal and 7k to Ju jak shrine (South wilderness)
  • Baekho: Bring 8k and a fish to the baekho shrine (West wilderness)

    6. Finally he will ask for your path weapon.

        (If you are NOT Il san or higher) - Level 95 weapon of your path (Poet-charm, Warrior-Spike, Rogue-Blood, Mage-Surge).

        (If you are Il san+) Enchanted level 95 weapon of your path.

        Your rank determines what you need to get. Ee san poets need Ee san charms, and so on. Do this by following this quest:

    7. He will tell that the potion needs to be brewed for a day and a night. (Estimated to be 3 hours or one nexus day) Return and he will give you a Restorative Drought.

    8. When he gives you the potion he tells you to bring your Xiou event helm (Not equiped) from earlier before starting this step! (If you did the first step of the event but missed the helm, it might be possible that you can get one now, since the red chest is on the way to Lasahn?)

    Now you must choose whether to give the potion to Xiou or Lasahn. Xiou is still in his captain's room. Lasahn is in the cells that Xiou sent you to earlier. You can get there from the bottom left corner of Xiou's room.

    You will get an upgraded form of your helmet if you keep it in your inventory when you turn in the potion. You will get the same helmet regardless of who you help.

    Xiou's enchanted war helmet (warrior)
    Xiou's enchanted stealth bandana (rogue)
    Xiou's enchanted magic crown (mage)
    Xiou's enchanted spiritual hood (poet)

    The stats are the same for each path:
    50,000 durability
    -10 ac, +20 regen, +50 vitality, +50 mana,
    +1 might, +1 will, +1 grace

    This is the final part for right now.

    We thank XHalfBakedX for allowing us to make a report on his newly found item, and we congratulate him on having the first known Sam san Female Rogue armor! We'd also like to thank Riane, for being brave and modelling it for everyone to see.

    He has the first, but it certainly won't be last!
