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!

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.

Buya server is down!

Beware! Buya server has been down for over an hour now and there's no sight of it getting fixed until daily reset.

Who will be your valentine?
Posted by: Vini -- 11:15 PM EST
   


At this Valentine's Day the quest reward isn't for you to enjoy, but your valentine(s). The color of the heart is of your choice. It has 50000 durability, 10m10 damage, 1 Hit and 5 regen. Are you interested in obtaining one? Then, who will be your valentine?

Here is the walkthrough:

1. Go to Buya coordinates 014,133 and talk to either the old man or the shaman there, you'll be given a valentine's ribbon.

2. Find Dashae in the tent at Kinung southeast (082,072) and she'll turn your valentine's ribbon into a Pink Heart.

3. Optional: If you want your heart to be any color other than pink, find the Muse at Islets (051,005) and she'll change the color of your heart at a cost of any song or poem that you can buy from the Kugnae's Baek shop (017,012).

4. Go visit Paryu Messenger at Buya (096,130) and he'll charge you 5000 coins to send out your heart to your valentine. Your valentine shall receive a parcel box and should pick it up at her kingdom's Messenger. The new "weapon" comes with a special engrave which allows your name to be at the items name in example: Mhul's Valentine.

This quest can be repeated multiple times for those who wish to have multiple valentines. Look at you, sending hearts to 3 other people. Player, please!

    Experience Bug came but is now fixed
    Posted by: Vini -- 11:38 PM EST
       
    Going from level 1 to 99 with just 1 kill: that surely would be the dream of every new nexus adventurer. Now imagine getting max experience with just 1 kill as well? How awesome could that be? Wait... throw in that you can get it in PK area which means, you don't have chance to lose BODs or get items damaged. Seems like a dream come true?

    Well it did come true, but can be the dream of many was actually the nightmare of Stein and a bug of nexus.

    Today, after implementing Nexus client patch version 7.02, a serious bug hit our community which allowed what was mentioned above to happen.
    It didn't take long for another reset to happen which stopped the bug, but quite few people took advantage and bug abused. As posted by GM Stein at community board and Dream weaver, those who were only affected by the bug for 1 max, shouldn't worry about it, but those who abused the bug will have a chance to undo the harm without being charged with "bug abuse" by submitting a ticket to support system.

    Here's a copy of Stein's post:
    If you were affected by the experience bug today and are above level 99 and you only got max experience one time, you may keep/sell this experience.

    If you maxed multiple times and sold experience or were under level 99 and instantly became level 99 please submit a support ticket. We'll be working through the logs to restore people to what they should be.

    Thanks!
    Stein

    If you got non-legit experience from the bug, be quick to send the ticket, you surely don't want to be confused and charged with being "bug abuser" and we surely don't want to have the GM spend hours and hours of his time working on fixing stats, while he could be using that time to implement clan/subpath requests and other new features.

    Client Patch brings Expandable Group Tab
    Posted by: Guldar -- 5:11 PM EST
       
    *** If you are running Windows Vista/7/8, make sure to run NexusTK as administrator (by right clicking the shortcut and selecting the option) for this patch ***

    It seems dreams really do come true, and that the Dreamweavers really do listen... sometimes. For a long time now, players have been complaining about wanting the Group panel to expand like our Inventory or Spell lists, and that dream is now a reality. If you open your Group Tab by pressing "f", you can click the little Down arrow to expand your panel to accomodate up to twelve (12) group members. Maximum group size is still thirteen (13) though, so someone has to be odd man out if you're at max size.

    Here are the compact, old style panels.


    And here are the new, improved, long style panels.


    If you don't like the larger panel, just click the little Up arrow and it goes back to normal. Also interestingly enough, once you have it in extended mode it will stay that way when you switch back and forth from Group Panel to Inventory or whatever else! Happy Hunting!

    Thank you to our lovely models, whose names you can plainly read in the pictures. If you like their work, please let them know, as I'm sure they would love to hear how pretty they looked on NexusAtlas News!

    Here is what also changed at Nexus with today's client patch and reset as posted by GM Stein on Dreamweaver:

    * Special quest for Valentine's starting later this evening
    * New itemshop items later today
    * Valentine's butterflies will be back later today as well!
    * The group window is now extendable like the inventory and spell pane so you can see more of your group without having to scroll

    Minor updates for:

  • Muse subpath: Muses can now grant people the "Peenk-o-dile dye", the pinkish one shown below;


  • Covenant clan: Minor fix at "Chamber of Honor" door;


  • Chongun subpath: Citizens can now access karma for 5,000 coins at Immortal Gateway;


  • Druid subpath: Sunflowers can be bloomed now;


  • Tiger clan: New npc added at crafting room: Radeon, who works as a bank and special food preparer, such as tiger meat, fish and wheat, also has several new buybacks.

    Happy Seollal!
    Posted by: Vini -- 11:56 PM EST
       

    Today Nexus celebrates its Lunar's New Year. At February 10th, the people of Korea celebrate the arrival of the year 4711. We now enter the year of the black water snake. The Year of the Snake comes around every 12 years.
    Different from the solar calendar, the korean and chinese calendars use the lunar calendar which has 354 per year.

    Curiosity: The last water snake year was 1953, exactly the year when Korean War ended.

    New Sun Moon Primogen
    Posted by: Loxie -- 11:26 PM EST
       
    After almost 5 years leading Sun Moon Sect, Primogen Muckish stepped down today and passed Primogen onto Dokara. The public announcement by Muckish was posted at community board:

    Effective immediately, I, Muckish Xing-Normad'Or, have officially resigned as the Primogen of the Sun Moon Sect. It has been an honour to serve as the only elected Primogen of the Sun Moon Sect and to have spent 37 yuris (5 years) as the leader of my clan family.

    To this day, I have not forgotten that I grew up within the clan that Genji founded but khaos built into what it is today. Primogen khaos but her faith in me many yuris ago and the accomplishments of my time as Primogen is in part due to her kindness and encouragement. I tried my best to walk in her footsteps and honour her legacy; and to this day the greatest compliment would be that I had done just that.

    I am very proud of my clan family and after much thought, I am proud to leave it in the hands of one of our finest. One who I know will fulfil the role with honour and vigor, one who I trust and who I know will serve his family well.

    I am pleased to announce Primogen Dokara as the 4th Primogen of the Sun Moon Sect. I look forward to seeing what he can do and where he will lead us in the days ahead. He has my utmost respect and as of today, my loyalty as my Primogen.

    Sincerely,
    /.) Lord Muckish Xing-Nomad'Or
    /)\| Primogen of the Sun Moon Sect
    //)/ Delegate of the Royal Tribunal of Koguryo
    /'"^" Light Gwa-Gu Diviner

    Congratulations Primogen Dokara and thank you Muckish for your years of service!

    KRA has a new & old leader! General Nykid stepped up and took the leadership of Koguryo Royal Army for the 3rd time.

    As most probably know, he has led this army twice before and served it since our early years. When you see General Nykid, please take a moment to congratulate him.
