A heads up
Posted by: Loxie -- 2:08 AM EST
   
It's old news, but Akidoshi brought up the "new" features of the main Kru website. For those of you who don't know, when Kru enabled you to change your character name they also added an option to restore deleted characters and transfer characters between two accounts (as long as you own both accounts). So for all you people just waiting for an excuse to shift your characters around, you now have it!

Wiyae steals from library and Hawkmori ends up being captured
Posted by: Vini -- 7:03 PM EST
   
KUGNAE -- Yesterday evening was a day like no other. Burglary, treason, threat to royal’s life and secret alliances revealed. All that ending with the imprisoning of one of the most wanted enemies of the kingdoms: Hawkmori.


Hawkmori imprisoned at Kugnae Oubliette.

The mayhem started as the Librarian Pond screamed asking for guard’s help as someone had broken in the inner library of Koguryo. Citizens rushed to Pond’s library unaware of what was going on and were only able to see the mysterious man walk out of the inner library. The desperate shouts of Pond reached King M’hul’s ears, who demanded explanation for what was going on.

It did take long for the first person to report the identity of the library thief: it was Wiyae, the sorcerer responsible for the murder of Nagnang’s King and Queen. Upon hearing the identity of the thief, King M’hul seemed worried of what he could have wanted stealing from books of the royal family sealed from public view. The King offered 10 million coins to the one who retrieved those books and delivered them together with Wiyae’s head.

The “generous” offer from the King obviously attracted many people and soon the lands of Kugnae and surroundings became a hunting place for Wiyae. Everyone trying to find where was the fox hole the old man went hiding. It didn’t take long until the first reports arrive with his hidden location. Wiyae had run the hallowed pass east into the cemetery and was trying to escape with help of some members of the KSG. They’ve set sleeping traps everywhere at Stealth Grotto and therefore everyone who tried to cross the grounds would get stuck, but that also included Wiyae. Cornered inside KSG’s meeting hall, Wiyae called for help, revealing a new associate to the mysterious plot. Besides working with Hawkmori, Wiyae is also working with Mupa, or probably, for Mupa.

As the feared witch entered Meeting hall, she cleared the way for Wiyae to escape and killed dozens of citizens who stood in her way at Stealth Grotto. They both then went hiding inside Oh Mudum inner’s crypt where Mupa convinced him to give her the books.


M'hul and citizens cornered Wiyae and Mupa inside Oh Mudum Crypts.

Once she had the books, she cleared her wait out of the crypts and escaped through Southern Koguryo. Wiyae in other hand tried to escape using the route Mupa left, but was unsuccessful and got cornered. As soon as Wiyae was out of the inner crypts, citizens of all kingdoms, soldiers from Koguryo and even spies ran after him. But as everyone ran for the enemy, the King himself was left unprotected and when that happens, you open the road to invisible nasty rogues to come unannounced and do stupid stuff: this time it was Hawkmori who crossed the room invisible and appeared with a knife at King M’hul neck. The royal's assassin took the King inside the crypt and threatened to kill him if Wiyae was not let free.


Soldiers of Koguryo Army tried to negotiate Wiyae's freedom for King M'hul's life.

KRA decided to do the trade. Wiyae was let free and so was Mhul. Wiyae escaped as soon as he could. But Hawkmori still had to leave and he had no way to exit. After hours waiting, Hawkmori tried to exit, dodged guards many times, but eventually got captured by the army.


Hawkmori tried went invisible several times, ambushed, dodges, escaped few times, but did not manage to escape from the cemetery.

Once captured, KRA took him to Kugnae Oubliette, at the Royal Palace, where he awaits trial.

A Changing of the Guard
Posted by: Guldar -- 7:46 PM EST
   
This may not exactly be fresh, groundbreaking news, but it's something that has been neglected thus far. The Elendhirin Clan of Buya has a new Primogen.



The proverbial torch of the Elendhirin Clan has been passed on from Assault Hinoyuki to Rogue WildBeast. We at NexusAtlas offer our thanks to Hinoyuki for his devoted service, and wish WildBeast a long and prosperous tenure as Primogen.

    Today's reset with many changes
    Posted by: Vini -- 11:24 PM EST
       
    A few hours ago the Nexus servers were reset to add new features to the Kingdom of the Winds. Here's a list of everything that changed today according to GM Stein's post on Dream Weaver board:

    * Some clan helms that were repairable were changed to be non-repairable like all the others

    * Primogen chat has been fixed so that people on other servers with clan chat off will receive the message

    * Some Gogoon cave entrances have been fixed to check base stats instead of incorrectly checking extended stats

    * A new stat balancing mechanism is being used for Yusa arena to address people with stats that are too high. If it works there it will be moved over to carnages as well

    * Jewelry rings can now be sold to Lan (Buya) and Puyuhan

    * Small/Medium/Large totem rings have had their endurance increased by 10,000

    * Jewelry love/oath rings now sell to NPCs for 25% more

    * Stat balancers for Yusa have been temporarily reverted. Hopefully some people were able to enjoy the bug (briefly)!

    * The sam san quest will now double check that you want to sacrifice the stats you have selected

    * The clan read karma script will now give the same results as the subpath versions. They would sometimes display two different results for people who happened to be on the threshold between levels.

    As part of the constant process of evaluating the balance between classes, we have made the following changes for rogues:
    * Blood stats (HP/MP)
    - Sam: 7/14 => 9/18
    - Sa: 8/16 => 14/28

    * Nimble blade stats (HP/MP)
    - Sam: 6/6 => 11.5/11.5
    - Sa: 8/8 => 17.5/17.5

    * Precision blitz aethers (Sa san spell)
    - 300s => 180s

    End of First Annual Archon "Help!" Day
    Posted by: Loxie -- 3:42 AM EST
       
    Just about everyone will agree that the "Help!" day was a huge success, and a great way to honor their lost mentor. Not only did they help mass amounts of people, but they managed to fit what once took days into a few minutes. They summoned and sweated while furiously running around to do our bidding. Now it's time to remember Dalnum, thank her and appreciate the hard muscles these oranges flexed for our benefit. Thank you so much! The outpour of appreciation can be found for your reading pleasure on Rambling Thoughts.

    Afterwards the Archons joined the community at South Mythic to say their goodbyes, receive their thanks and do what they do best - slaughter the players.

    Archon help day is going on now!
    Posted by: Vini -- 8:24 PM EST
       
    As announced by Immortals and reported by Loxie here on Nexus Atlas, today is the Archon help day. For the first time ever in nexus history the Gods have lifted some rules concerning Immortal law just for one day and archons are allowed to help mortals do their quests, hunts and boss groups.



    So far, hundreds of people have had the help of archons and hundreds are hoping to get some. If you have been helped by Immortals today, please send a screenshot to vini@nexusatlas.com so we can make a photo report of this memorable day.

    Celebrity Wedding
    Posted by: Loxie -- 2:12 AM EST
       
    The wedding ceremony of well known ex-Spy turned Primogen Hobart and General Killeh started off well, with several guests present. Unfortunately it was disrupted by a rude guest and finished in the Chapel without the Shaman. I'm sure their second ceremony will go off with better luck with a more selective guest list.

    First Annual "Help!" Day
    Posted by: Loxie -- 5:13 PM EST
       
    Ooh! How nifty. As a tribute to Dalnum you now get a day of Archon slavery! There's limits, of course, but it sounds fun and useful. I've seen plenty of people saging for Archon help on quests before! Thanks, oranges. (I know I intend to use the help day to get an Archon photoshoot. Or maybe an Archon tea party? Hm!)

    As posted on the Immortal Bounty:

    (( Alt + 5 ))

    ===============================================
    "Help!" Day
    ===============================================

    First Annual Dalnum Help Day

    "The Archon Team is here to help you =)"
    -Quoted from Dalnum's profile

    Date: Saturday, May 7th

    In her memory, the archons are dedicating a day to assist with mortal affairs -- questing, hunting, and even bloodlusting.

    We will assist you with:
    Greater and lesser alliances
    Nagnang shield quest run-throughs
    Forever tree run-throughs
    Hunting
    Minor quests
    and whatever else is deemed appropriate ...

    Assistance will not be provided to those who demand help.

    Please note that we will NOT:
    *Provide shortcut summons in long-winded quests (e.g. SoE, Shield Quest)
    *Participate in Sa san quests (Nngh'zan, council, houses)
    *Distribute quest items


    This is a one-day-only event. Archons will not fulfill these requests prior and subsequent to this event.

    On behalf of the entire team, we look forward to seeing you on "Help!" (( "Alt + 5" )) day! ;)
