The Koguryo Royal Wedding - Full Coverage!
Posted by: Vini -- 9:30 PM EST
   

I pronounce you husband and wife. You may kiss your bride.
These where the words said by Shaman TheSavior, after King M’hul and his bride Yun said their vows and accepted to bond their souls in marriage.


This was one of the most iconic moments in the history of the Kingdom of Winds and of course would require a complete coverage by Nexus Atlas on all events that marked such significant occasion for The Royal Family of Koguryo.


New Item and New Legend Marks

The wedding was supposed to start at 9pm, but around 8pm there were already many people waiting at the Kugnae Palace Courtyard. By the time that the wedding started, those who checked heroes list could see over 450 people were at the kingdoms and many of those were there for the wedding.


Once the doors to King MuHyul’s Jeongwon opened, people could talk to “Valentine” which was close by the entrance. By talking to her you could get two types of mark “Witnessed the Koguryo Royal wedding (Hyul 62, Spring)” or “Special Guest at Koguryo Royal wedding (Hyul 62, Spring)”. To obtain the “Witnessed” the you had to choose “No, I wasn’t” when Valentine asks if you were one of the people who helped break Yun’s curse.





If you chose the option “Yes, I was. I even got Koguryo’s Gratitude” she would check if you were carrying and if you were, she would take the Koguryo’s Gratitude item from your inventory and give you a Ceremonial Tea of Koguryo which is a sub-accessory item similar to the Tea pots that were given at a Mug’s mug event years ago, except that these are bonded to the owner. Check the stats below:




The Wedding Ceremony and the Coronation

The wedding ceremony started a few minutes late, but which wedding doesn’t? The bride was late as usual. As the ceremony hadn’t started yet, the special guests were being accommodated to the special area within the carpet next to the altar/throne. Vales, the Minister of Koguryo began the ceremony and introduced a bit of how the ceremony would happen. Shortly after, it was King M’hul who arrived from a door behind the throne and greeted everyone. Loxie, who is member of the Royal Ministry, then led the singing of Koguryo Royal Anthem.

Princess Yun arrived from south and crossed the whole walk way being carried in a white coach by two servants and was accompanied by two members of the Royal Ministry, Zylon and Toughman. Upon arriving to the altar, King Mhul greeted her and complimented on how beautiful she was.

The first part of the wedding ceremony was held by Minister Vales and was full of symbolism. She wrapped chickens in with ribbons to represent the binding of families that come with marriage and asked the groom and bride to share a tea. After the kogurian cultural part of the ceremony, it was time for Shaman TheSavior to make the union official.
Do you take Yun/Mhul as your faithful partner, to protect until the end of days, to keep in sickness and through health, and to love from now until eternity?, asked TheSavior and by no surprise of the crowd, both said “I do”. The Shaman then recognized the binding of souls together and granted them the approval from spirits. At last, finally married King M’hul and Yun had their first kiss, a quite long one in fact.




After being married to the King, it was time for Princess Yun to be crowned as Queen. Minister Vales removed the florets from Yun’s head and placed a blue tiny crown just like the one King M’hul wears on day to day basis. Citizens and Guests of Koguryo I present to you Queen Yun of Koguryo. After crowning the new Queen, Vales asked Guldar, the Chongun elder, to approach the Queen and grant her new title as “Queen of Koguryo”.




Once married, crowned and titled, the ceremony was finally over, the doors behind the throne were opened so the special guests could join the rest of the guests at the western part of the Jeongwon where King MuHyul and Queen Yun were having their reception, accepting the congratulations from the community and answering questions from the crowd about the future plans of the Royal couple. The King mentioned that first they would go on a honey moon, and then he would have a reform/expansion to the Koguryo Royal Palace and not in a distant future also announce the birth of an heir. A baby Prince seems to be coming in the way.



While the reception was happening, there was also an auction going on at Community events for people to have the chance to have the first dance(s) with the recently married King and Queen. The woman who won the first dance with the King was Tyrra who is primogeness of Bear clan. The man who won the first dance with the Queen was sort of a surprise because he’s a barbarian, Nejiijen. A total of 4 men and 4 women had the chance to have a solo dance with the royals and at the end, the Minister and Tougman ended dancing with the Royals too.



It seems that during the royal's dance someone was sort of desperate to appear here in Nexus Atlas. We don’t usually do this by request, but perhaps on such a special day it doesn't hurt to give attention to someone who really wanted it. There you go Chicago, you're on NA!



If anyone has interesting screenshots of the wedding please send to my email!

King Mhul's Royal Wedding
Posted by: Elarra -- 2:22 PM EST
   
It is the month of February and, in turn, the season of love. On Valentine's Day, King Mhul and Princess Yun announced their engagement to the kingdoms. In turn, they received many congratulations and well wishes.

Last night, the two were official linked together in a holy union. In a ceremony decorated by the Koguryo Royal Ministry and performed by Shaman theSavior, King Mhul and Princess Yun were officially married.



Minister Vales opened the ceremony to the public in the early hours of the night. Loxie of the Muse subpath and Koguryo Ministry began by singing the Koguryo's song.

King Mhul officially accepted Princess Yun as his wife, making her the new Queen of Koguryo. And while King Mhul has left a plethera of broken hearted women all the way to altar, fear not! Prince Chaeri is still available!

Valentine's Heart Quest Returns
Posted by: Loxie -- 6:43 AM EST
   
In case you haven't noticed, the Valentine's quest has returned. Here's the quest Vini posted last year:


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!

Mhul is engaged
Posted by: Donjuan -- 7:30 PM EST
   
It seems that the most desired bachelor of Kingdom of Winds is no longer available. As a surprise for most who were around (read – “singles”) during Valentine’s Day, King M’hul, who finally had company, made a shocking proposal during the lover’s day: “Will you marry me, Yun?”, he asked and for no surprise to everyone she said yes.

Here’s a copy of how yesterday’s proposal was done over world shout:



The proposal took place at Koguryo Palace, but I wasn’t there to record the moment (take screenshots). If anyone did, please send it to us!

Also, for all the ladies who are devastated that Mhul is no longer on the “market”, the second most desired bachelor is still single and really for love! Just give me a call (whisper) or drop me a note!

Guaranteed interesting developments are to follow.

New Kruna Shop Item - Divorce Papers!
Posted by: Ushallfeerme -- 2:55 PM EST
   
    There's a new practical Kruna Shop item, called Divorce Papers. I believe this item is
self explanatory: It allows you to Divorce without penalty. Just one thing, though...
does it work for Blood Brothers and Sisters as well? I plan to research this matter,
so keep watch for my next post to confirm or deny its use for Blood bonds!

Here is what also changed with yesterday's server reset:

  • Valentine's butterflies and items have returned!

  • The Valentine fan event is back, keep an eye out for parcels from your secret (or not-so-secret) admirer


    Also, a bug that has disabled right click menus and options was introduced with the patch on wednesday, but according to GM Stein it will be switched to be toggleable with the next patch.

    Client Patch to V 7.09
    Posted by: Vini -- 11:44 PM EST
       
    The servers were reset to implement nexus version 7.09. According to GM Stein post, the main change was to implement new graphics for Valentine's itemshop options coming in the next day or two.

    While patching the client, remember to make sure you're running NexusTK as administrator (by right clicking the shortcut and selecting the option).

    Phoenix Retaliates!
    Posted by: Elarra -- 4:28 PM EST
       
    We have all heard the long tale of the Barbarians trashing the Buyan Palace. It's practically a tradition. This time, however, Phoenix decided to strike back. Fed up with the Barbarians and their shenanigans, they went to burn down the Barbarian cave!


    So all must be right with the world, right? Wrong. The Barbarians attacked, breaking out large pieces of the walls within the Phoenix Clan Hall.



    This is one of the few instances where Phoenix has been challeneged. The matter is only complicated further with rumors that the former Buyan Minister Rebelmagic assisted the Barbarians with their antics on Buyan soil.



    I wonder how Phoenix will handle this? Will the BIA have anything to say? Does the Ministry intend to get involved? I guess we'll just have to wait and see!
