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.

The Celebrations Have Begun
Posted by: AllyGator -- 7:16 PM EST

After a seemingly eternal time waiting for the servers to stabilize, everyone was able to get their new shiny swords. We found out that the experience bonus is 1.5 times normal. There is now a new NPC near south gate in Mythic but if you attack him it makes him mad and you get sent back to your home ! The Fireworks Master holds a show every 2 hours and it's a sight to see.

People are now forming groups to massively hunt while the bonus is available. Log on and join in.



The long awaited reset is here!
Posted by: AllyGator -- 11:55 AM EST

The Nexus servers were reset with the following changes:

We hope you enjoy this weekends Anniversary events! We will begin the experience bonus today! The bonus will last through the weekend with a reset sometime early Monday. We also have a surprise in store for you so be on the look out in Mythic Nexus! Thank you again for being with us another year! We look forward to bringing you more great fun in the future.

Clan, Army & Ministry additions and fixes:
* Minor updates for Destiny clan

Just before the reset a restless crowd was waiting. . . .



For those looking for their new set of Wisdom clothes, please keep in mind that it goes by the real life date in which your character was born!* The Anniversary resets are usually before the actual Anniversary date.

* - Starting with people born before the great shift, who (I think) receive their new clothes on July 1st, around 3:00am pacific time - Rachel

New Geomancer elder
Posted by: Vini -- 9:30 PM EST

Just a few minutes ago, there has been a shift in the leadership of Geomancy subpath. Elder Halome, has just stepped down to deal with some personal issues that kept her from continuing to help the much she could. The position was passed over to Rhew, who will carry forward the legacy of the Geo eldership.

Congratulations to Elderess Rhew and thanks to Halome for all she did to the path. Also a special thanks to KenZi who informed about such change.

Experience Bonus coming
Posted by: Vini -- 3:47 PM EST

Early today, Mug has posted on Dream Weavers board informing that during the festive weekend of Nexus 9th anniversary there will be an experience bonus. It will last from Friday 29th to Sunday, July 1st. The amount of the bonus isn't known yet; people might have to wait to see it in action or can start guessing about it.

It is not known if this experience bonus is what Mug was referring to when he mentioned a small surprise for the anniversary, but sure does sounds like it: "...along with another small surprise to make sure this anniversary year will be a truly festive one to experience!" Of course people hope that this surprise is something else; after all, everyone likes good surprises.

Coincidence or not, in the morning of this July 1st, the 9th anniversary of nexus, Nexus will also be celebrating the 9th Hyul which means 9th year of King M'hul's reign.

Happy 9th Anniversary
Posted by: AllyGator -- 10:42 AM EST

Today Nexus released this announcement:

On July 1, 1998, Nexus: The Kingdom of the Winds was opened for players in the United States. This weekend, we mark the ninth year since Nexus left beta testing. To help celebrate we will be bringing back the traditional Anniversary swords, along with another small surprise to make sure this anniversary year will be a truly festive one to experience! Players will be able to collect their swords beginning on Friday, June 29th. As always, we would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of our customers for their support over the years and for making Nexus: Kingdom of Winds one of the longest running RPG's in history!

Server reset
Posted by: Vini -- 7:51 PM EST

There has been a recent reset with the return of Haengsa. His location is at wilderness 57/56.

Server reset, Friday, June 22, 2007
The Nexus servers were reset with the following changes:

Haengsa has come out with a new quest and he said he has something else up his sleeve for you. I am sure you will figure it out.

Many more updates have been put in for the new area. This area will be released for testing when it is ready. We had hoped it would be out by the end of May but felt this update should be free of any problems. Each time we thought we were done, we found more things to add. You asked us to keep you up to date on projects so we just want you to know things are being worked on to better help the game. Please be patient!

Thank you!
Nexus Team

Tangun Entrance Blocked
Posted by: AllyGator -- 2:20 AM EST

Now to cover some news that was missed last week....

Forum user xrunex told us that the entrance was blocked after the June 9th reset. Why? No one knows. Watch for more to come. In the mean time, anyone who needs to fill water jugs can use the lake just south of the Tangun entrance.

The Databases are Back
Posted by: AllyGator -- 3:43 AM EST

Thanks once again to ZARKH (my personal hero), our databases are back up. That means you can now check out spells, armor, monsters, ect. There are still a few missing images but I'm working on that as fast as I can.

Forums are up!
Posted by: Rachel -- 3:22 AM EST

NexusForums are back! Hopefully everything else will be working soon. Currently you can only find them here: http://www.nexusatlas.com/forums/index.php

If you notice any problems anywhere on NexusAtlas, please post on this thread.

Thank you for your help!

While we were gone..
Posted by: Rachel -- 4:36 PM EST

For both records purposes and for anyone who hasn't been playing lately..

Server reset, Thursday, June 14, 2007
The Nexus servers were reset with the following changes:

Because mug is in such a good mood toady he will be giving everyone who is registered 50 Kruna and anyone on auto renewal will get 100 Kruna! Enjoy!

Clan, Army & Ministry additions and fixes:
* Phoenix clan can now sell Tarnished wt amber and Crafted wt amber to Generosity. They can also sell Star gowns to Responsibility.
* Pegasus clan receives small update.

Other:
* Minor typo in tutorial fixed.
* More large updates for new addition once it is ready everyone will get a chance to test it before its final release.
* Large update for item shop (will be release shortly today)
* Haengsa has gotten ill from all the Brassica he ate. He will return soon with another quest once he feels better.



The item shop update added several new items, the first faces, and several functional items. These items can warp you, repair items, and protect your experience during death.



The biggest sellers seem to be Mounts. With mounts, you can summon a ride (currently panther or doe) anywhere except carnage. They can be purchased for an average cost of 912 kruna. About a day after the mounts were released, they added a 3 second delay to summon the creatures, stating that instant summons made them too powerful. While some were upset that they couldn't get a refund after this change was made, most complaints about mounts have gone away.


Focused blow (Sam san Ka'e) was fixed to remove the overflow or splash damage. Kru said, "You guys will see why soon enough"

A hellfire bug caused hellfire (and I think sam san's doom fire) to do less damage for every space you were away from your target. The bug still exists on the Nagnang server. Kru said that, like rogues, mages should also expect some interesting changes in the future.






We're Back!
Posted by: AllyGator -- 2:40 PM EST

Thanks to Heavens Primogen Zarkh for helping to debug our news software. Yes it's ugly for now but I'll be fixing that soon. My web host was experiencing denial of service attacks and they had severely filtered their routers which is why so many of you couldn't see the site. They've revised their filters and now it is working. There is still a lot of work to be done to get the Forums running as well as the database pages (i.e. armor, weapons, monsters).

NOTE TO NEXUS ATLAS STAFF: Contact AllyGator to renew your Coranto access. I had to delete all accounts to fix the problem.

Tiger Clan Primogen Shift
Posted by: Sebelle -- 8:23 PM EST

Earlier today Primogen Healinkisses of the Tiger Clan stepped down from her position, and handed the title back to FPickleDog. FPickleDog, for those who remember, took on the position after Yiro stepped down - and will surely do a great job as Primogen once again!

Thank you for all of your hard work Healinkisses! We hope for nothing but the best for returning Primogen FPickleDog!


Primogen FPickleDog of the Tiger Clan

To take her place, not an old face, but in fact a former Prime Minister, Asuza.
