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.

Earth's Dragon Needs Help!
Posted by: Songa -- 4:02 PM EST

The Geomancers have managed to find where their beloved Earth's Dragon was hiding,
and he has returned to the House of Chi. However, he is now asking for your help!

He asks that you collect a few items for him, to help him recover from his ordeal.
Once you have done so, he will burn a tattoo regarding your accomplishments into your skin. :)

Geomancer's Plight!
Posted by: Songa -- 7:28 PM EST

It seems as if the Guardian of the House of Chi, the Earth's Dragon, has suddenly disappeared from his home.

The Geomancers have no idea where he could have wandered off to, but the strange whispers they've been hearing lately
now seem to make sense. They are desperately asking that if anyone hears the cries of their beloved Earth's Dragon,
to please contact a Geomancer as soon as possible!

The House of Chi can no longer retain it's constant flow of harmony, without the Guardian's help. Therefore, all doors
to enter the House of Chi will be closed. Please help the Geomancers discover where the Earth's Dragon has run off to,
and keep an eye as well as an ear out for his whereabouts!

Thank you to Rhew for acknowledging me of this situation. :)

Overflow introduced
Posted by: Conro -- 10:27 PM EST

A feature in Baram (Korean Nexus) from day one with Vitality attacks, 'Overflow' damage has been introduced with the last server reset.
The change was brought by 'Kru', and not 'mug', and 'mug' is unsure if any other changes will be brought for other paths.

In essence, if your vitality attack kills an enemy, and does so in a matter of 'overkill', any damage left over is split down to 20%, then done to the remaining creatures around that creature.

The damage only happens if the creature dies, and only hits enemies around the one you've killed, just like the Staff of the Elements spell 'Annhilate'. If you are standing on a creature, it will hit them as well.

This effects the following spells...
- Seige (Warrior Sam san)
- Whirlwind (Warrior Lv99)
- Berserk (Warrior Lv75)
- Slash (Warrior Lv63)
- Throw axe (All Path, Lv99)
- Townie (Barbarian, Lv99)
- Rend (Barbarian, Lv99)

This spell also effects the Rogue spell Focused Blade (Rogue Sam san), but has been said it will change with the next reset.

No announcements have been made if any changes will be made for Rogues or other paths due to this change.

New Tutors!
Posted by: Nussan -- 4:49 PM EST


The Kingdoms have 2 new Tutors!

It is Moraghul who is the new Rogue tutor in Nagnang, and Snoop who will be the Poet tutor in Kugnae!
Congratulations on your new positions!

Large item shop update - Qi pao and Kung fu sets and packages!
Posted by: Sebelle -- 3:31 PM EST

mug just announced new item shop additions - Qi pao and Kung fu armor sets, along with individual pieces! You can purchase some items separately - but you seem to get the "most bang for your buck" with the full sets. The sets are priced at over 1,000 kruna and come in an assortment of colors. You may purchase the Flower hair and Mandarin hats separately, or with the sets. You can purchase the Qi pao and Mary Jane shoes, or the Kung Fu and Kung Fu shoes as packages as well! This means there are a variety of ways for you to get the items, if you wish!

For all the colors and full details, visit the Official Item Shop! I have provided two of their images, detailing just two of the many many colors available.

Qi pao sets
This package includes: 1 Qi pao dress, 1 pair Mary jane shoes and 1 Flowery hair.

In the beautiful tradition of our ancestors, this Qi Pao has been tailored of the softest silks from the Kingdom of Han. Its delicate craftsmanship and exquisite handwork make it truly feminine. Because of its realistic floral embroidery, enchanted butterflies follow you everywhere. Delight in owning this remarkable garment!


Kung fu sets

This package includes: 1 Kung fu outfit, 1 pair of Kung fu shoes and 1 Mandarin hat.

Kung Fu translated means 'energy' and 'time'. Those who devote themselves to the traditional martial arts are well aware of its meaning. This garment captures the essence of Kung Fu and will inspire all who wear it. Let others know of your strengths and beliefs when they see you wearing this.

April Fools!
Posted by: Nagnag -- 10:04 PM EST

I hope everyone enjoyed Nexus Atlas' notorious April Fools joke. Yet again, fooling a good handful of the community. Off and on I double checked the Library, Chonsa Den, Guol Valley and the Well to see how many people were still doing it. 20 hours later, there were STILL wanderers falling for the silly quest! So, on behalf of Nexus Atlas - APRIL FOOLS! Enjoy the rest of this "holiday" that has been going on since the 1400s! (no joke this time!)

Mad Peasant Mystery is Over!
Posted by: Nagnag -- 12:13 AM EST

Ancient Dragon Suit, Wings, Mask & Shield Revealed!

Thanks AND congratulations to Artisan SloofLirpa for completing the quest and providing us with an accurate walkthrough to complete it!
And thanks to everyone else who helped provide information that lead up to the leads we've had!

The Mad Peasant has finally came to his senses! During the usual testing, a couple friends and I tried something new. After hours and hours of taking random items to the Mad Peasant suprisingly one worked! Below is everything we have, confirmed, up until we can not go any further.


Before you start, be sure that you've spoken to Pond, Claw (Tiger in Buya), and the Rabbit at Goul Valley (by Chu Rua). Pond responds to Dragon and Book. The Tiger responds to Dragon and Book. The rabbit responds to Dragon and Well. We are not sure if there is a particular order you have to say them in (as with most quests you must say things in order for the next step to work, it seems all NPCs respond no matter what order you go in). We are pretty certain there are no other requirements thus far.

(Note: You must have a ROPE to enter the well on the path to the right in Guol Valley where Chu Rua is. This is where the walkthrough begins)
-After speaking to Pond, Claw, and Rabbit, go to the Mad Peasant with White Paper and Ink

-Say "Paper" (and he'll ask "Paper? For what?"). Then say "Write"

-He takes the Paper and Ink and a popup says "*He quickly dips his finger into the ink and begins to scribble with his finger on the paper*"

-You will recieve "Peasant's Plea"

- Take this Plea to Pond and say "Plea"

- Pond responds, "Oh dear, what is this?" - "My... goodness. It's an excerpt from my book!" - "Where did you get this?"

- Say "Mad Peasant" and he'll say "Well that explains the plea at the bottom... it says," - " 'Please help me. I want to turn into a dragon so I can hatch this egg!' " - "This poor man sounds like he needs help... tell ya what, show Sya this letter" - "Mention the Ancient Dragon Suit to her and tell her I sent you."

Sya is the seamstress in KaMing's Encampment. Go to her and say "Plea".

- She'll respond with "What is it? *takes paper from you*" - "*gasps and hands it back quickly*"

Say "Ancient Dragon Suit" to her

- She'll respond with "Who told you about such a thing?"

- Say "Pond"

- She'll respond with, "Don't you tell anyone about this.. but if you bring me what I need to get started, I can help you out."

-The items you need to bring to Sya are: 20 Cloth, 20 Fine Cloth, 24 Dragon's Teeth (maximum you can hold)

- Say "Dragon" to her and she'll thank you and give you Dragon Wings which are wearable as a mantle but she says to take them to Gan along with the Plea and mention her name.

- Make sure the wings are in your inventory

Go to Gan (The smith in KaMing's) and say "Sya"

- He will respond with a story on how he created the first Ancient Dragon Suit and it has been a well kept secret since the beginning.

- Say "Plea" and he'll observe the Peasant's Plea and agree to help you make this suit for him. He asks you to bring him supplies to get started.

- The items you need to bring to Gan are: 22 Metal, 22 Fine Metal, Dragon Wings

- Return with the items
and say "Supplies"

He will take the items and thank you, giving you "Unfinished Armor"

- He tells you to take the armor to his cousin Runag - the Smith of Hausson.

- Take the Unfinished (unequipable) Armor to Runag and say "Unfinished Armor"

Runag will say that he's been expecting you and gives you three different options to forge the armor into. Shield, Armor, or Mask

All three require Unfinished Armor, Hot Coal, 100,000 coins, and another item depending on your selection (see below)

Shield: Your Path's "Shield" (Mage Ward, Poet Charm, Rogue Buckler, Warrior Shield) any level.

Armor: Your Path's "Armor" in Star Quality.

Mask: 10 Bones (can be found in Vale Skeletons cave)

Once you have made your choice you can't make the same thing twice, but you can obtain all three - Shield Armor & Mask.

Once you have all three, put them all on and say "Ancient Dragon Suit" and Runag will bow before you and call you the Dragon King, then quickly realize it is just you. You then recieve a legend mark "Obtained Ancient Dragon Suit"

- Go back to the Mad Peasant in the well, and say "Dragon King" and he will bow to you and be very humble.

- He'll give you his blessing and says he would like help hatching the egg if you do not mind.

- He gives you a selection - yes or no - choose yes and he'll give you "Dragon Egg" which looks like the book which he stands on.

- Take the "egg" and Hot Coal in the Creation System and it creates a Baby Dragon which does nothing when you use it.

- Take the Baby Dragon back to the Peasant and say "Baby Dragon" and he'll let you keep it and thank you for helping.

- You are rewarded with another legend mark too: "Helped Hatch the Dragon Egg "

In the end, you have a Baby Dragon 'toy', Armor (which wears like a coat), Mask (which is a face accessory), and Shield (which maintains your path's shield's statistics).

Good luck!
