Quest to regain Valentine's mark is still available
Posted by: Vini -- 3:05 PM EST
   
While some many have not noticed, the quest to re-obtain the valentine's event legend mark Helped star-crossed lovers tie the knot that went missing from everyone's legends is still available for a limited time.



The quest is shorter than original and doable by anyone, even those who didn't do it originally in February. The mark has vanished months ago due to an unexplained bug and was brought back about a month ago to be once more obtained.

If you would like to do or re-do this mini-event quest click here for the walkthrough and beware: it's very likely that this quest may be removed with upcoming resets related to Nexus Anniversary and upcoming events. So if you want, be fast to get it back.

The New Nagnang Defenders
Posted by: Vini -- 10:00 PM EST
   
Yesterday a Nagnang Defender Ceremony was held inside the Josang Hol at Nagnang Royal Palace. Organized by the nangen ministry, known as "The Eternal Order of Nagnang", such yearly celebration recognized 19 citizens who pledged loyalty to Nagnang kingdom.

Here is the list of all new Nagnang Defenders sanctioned by King ChaeRi Sukaya:

-----
  • Alizarin: Mornelithe and Jaybones
  • Covenant: Ling
  • Forsaken: Primogen Guotie, Milana and Xevu
  • Silla: Goon and Rasputin
  • K'urimja: IceDFire and Aang
  • Pegasus: Rentaro and Dreezy
  • Viper: Beulah, Phiirosan and Luxe

  • EoN: Wildhair, Nuga and TigerRyu
  • RGN: Leviticus
    *Names in bold are of people who were present at ceremony and received their mark and dye already



    Along with the nineteen citizens, the ceremony had a very special moment when the young Sutsang, the royal Princess of Nagnang, also took the oath and pledged to defend the kingdom as well. After the ceremony a celebration was held at the clan hall of The Forsaken.

    Dragonshrine Banker Returns with Updates!
    Posted by: IcePixy -- 6:05 PM EST
       
    Ryka originally created the Dragonshrine Banker an amazing multi-bank cataloger back in 2014,
    it now returns with some very useful updates and now offers:

    -Up to 15 characters
    -Shows bank and inventory
    -Shows gold per character bank/inventory
    -Show total gold across all characters added



    It's super easy to use and very convenient for those with multiple characters!

    How does it work?
    On the left you type in a character name and click "Catalog me".

    Once you click it will go to your user page on nexustk and grab all the items that you have
    deposited in your bank and add them to the list on the right. You can easily search through the
    characters items you have cataloged on the right by typing in a search string such as "amber".
    This will return all your characters that have anything named "amber".
    So yellow ambers, dark ambers all will show as well as their amount.

    And if you leave the page and come back the names that you have cataloged previously will still be there!

    If you like it, perhaps you would like to drop Ryka a letter letting her know this new tool was useful to you
    and if you have ideas to add to that, I'm sure she would love to hear from you!!


    Credit to Vini and Ryka.

    A little random boost not related to Wisdom star.
    Posted by: LinuxKiddy -- 11:05 AM EST
       
    3 days Ago the server was reset with a few tweaks in exp as well as the wonderful
    Alilana Grande Modulator added as a random chance to win. Wony has clarified that this
    is not related to Wisdom star!

    If you're unfamiliar with what Alilana grande star is, it's a mod/item you hold that lasts
    so long that gives you 2x experience/crafting success rates.

    Instead of a set period of time that users can Hunt or craft it is all based on a timer
    when you

    RANDOMLY

    receive a Alilana grande with 5 coins.


    GOOD LUCK!



    BOARD TITLE: Dream Weaver
    FROM: NexusTK DATE: 6/10
    SUBJECT: Server Reset - June 10th, 2017

    - Bird 3 mobs further weakened and exp increased
    - Turtle 3, Gargoyle 3, Flower 4, Bird 4 adjusted

    - If you are L99 + and lucky, you may get an Alilana Grande with a 5 coins random box.


    some Information on the Alilana Grande

    -You can receive one randomly from a 5 coin random box.

    -You cannot exchange or drop this item.

    -Lasts 8 hours after you receive it, no way to stop the timer. After 8 hours the item will crumble.

    - Boosts your Experience/Crafting success rate by 2x

    Thank you Wony for clarifying things about the update.

    Blight Explains it All
    Posted by: Loxie -- 11:56 PM EST
       

    There have been speculations that Blight's mind had been damaged by the poisonings of Nagnang's waters, and just how many of Nagnang's citizens had been affect.

    Wonder no more, Blight took to the Chronicles of the Winds to explain why he is throwing his cap in with King ChaeRi and Princess Sutsang.

    Circumstance and decison

    Many were surprised that I had turned myself in. This was voluntary with no coercion. Why turn myself in? Why pledge loyaty to King ChaeRi?

    Kija was young and inexperienced in the ways of the world when he started to rule. I did feel betrayed by by Kija when the borders were opened and I suspected that the Northern Kingdoms were killing Nagnang citizens. I allied myself with the Sonhi against Buya and Koguryo and received no help from Prince Kija at the time. Then was betrayed by Sonhi. A just saw Prince Kija was incompetent and I took over protecting the Nagnang people. I was General by my own hand. Through Kija's leadership he formed a new Army to stop the magically empowered Johaith. Nagnang was almost defeated. Citizen's minds were corrupted and many were slain by the thousands, thus the land of the dead.

    ChaeRi, after Kija's older bother was killed was made regent. I used torture to make Hawkmori talk. We found out who really killed Kija. I felt proud of my accomplishment. Then General Donjuan confronted me and instead of listening I attacked the General during Tribunal. Then basically this turned into a bar fight. Prince ChaeRi did not make Hawkmori talk, I did! I was sure ChaeRi would be weak like his brother and yes I admit I was part of the Resistance to remove Prince ChaeRi. After the discovery of my work in the Resistance I could not live in the Kingdom no more. I was a fugitive.

    Some felt I was a hero some hated me. Thus there was division in the Kingdom. My clan, The Forsaken, the ones that fought with me were also betrayed by Kija. Because if this The Forsaken can never be peace for with ChaeRi. This is because of me. In reality because of this I had forsaken The forsaken. Though my love was for them and Nagnang.

    I observed ChaeRi from afar. He ruled wisely in spite of the rip in the fabric of Nagnang. Some of this rip was my doing. As I got older and hopefully wiser I can count the errors of my ways. I knew to start the healing of the lands I must come clean. It was one the hardest things for me to do. I was sure that ChaeRi would give me a death sentence or incarcerate me. In spite of this I met General Ferro at the north gate. He did escort me with honor which surprised me. I expected to be put in shackles, even though shackles or a jail cell cannot hold me.

    Most who read this know what happened. I can now move freely in Nagnang the country I love. So you will see me occasionally. I will always be a part of The Forsaken and Nagnang. I will come when called to the protecton of the land and the King. I look forward to hunting in the lands that we were given.

    The best way to bring good change to Nagnang is to not work against the royalty but with the Royalty. We still have a hard road ahead and change must happen. I call upon the clans to learn to trust. I did not trust ChaeRi quite, even at the time I was giving myself up. I took a risk and put trust in him. This time I was not betrayed. I was given honor that I did not think I deserve. Nagnang to help the Kingdom we must come together as one.

    Everything I did I had good intentions though looking back I do have regrets.

    Retired General Blight
    (Protector of Nagnang) and now also protector of the King and his daughter.


    Royal Play Date
    Posted by: Loxie -- 5:49 PM EST
       
    Prior to Blight's Trial the royal families gathered in the Nagnang fairgrounds to enjoy a play date.



    The playdate consisted of three events, the first held by Nagnang.



    The second event was hosted by the KRA. It was the common folk who won this game of Battle Fish.



    And lastly was Two Truths and a Lie, held by Alizarin. I destroyed everyone, taking home 1,200,000 gold and some shinies.



    (Thank you to Ellinia for providing the screenshots.)

    Koguryo Eclipsed?!
    Posted by: IcePixy -- 3:46 PM EST
       
    Mere moments ago, a frightening event never before seen in the lands occured!

    An Eclipse has covered the kingdom, a Vortex Boss going by the name 'Water Elemental'
    decided to leave his regular home and landed stuck within a wall in the north-west corner of Koguryo.



    Thanks to many brave souls who attempted to save the citizens, many from the bordering nations
    of both Nagnang and Buya, the foul and terrorizing 'Water Elemental' was finally brought to his knees
    and slain without mercy after attacking many unwitting captives.

    This apparently occured after Phiirosan, Beulah and Tsuanjo attacked it first within it's own home in Vortex.

    Was this the 'Water Elementals' quest for vengeance?

    While most citizens wonder what they could have done to deserve such a monstrosity in their lands,
    with the sun restored to it's previous state, many hope for a repeat of the exciting mini-adventure!

    Blight Pardoned
    Posted by: Loxie -- 2:23 PM EST
       
    The Kingdoms were given quite the shock at Blight's trial. It began as could be expected. Blight, finally turning himself in, was sentenced to death..



    And that's when the surprises started. King ChaeRi then pardoned him, expressing his desire for mercy.



    In return, Blight then asked for favors for Forsaken. He expressed their desire to have hunting grounds once more, as before the settling of Nagnang they had owned the entire kingdom. King ChaeRi agreed, and granted them the Woodlands.

    I suspect the greatest surprise, however, was Blight's subservient behavior towards King ChaeRi. He not only begged for forgiveness but also pledged his loyalty to the King. This was a huge change from the man who once felt the sons of King Zhou and Queen Filia were the enemy of Nagnang.

    (Thank you to Ellinia for the screenshots.)

    Nexus Atlas: The Future
    Posted by: Ferro -- 4:41 PM EST
       
    Last year, I was brought on board to the Nexus Atlas team to build a responsive web site. Due to various problems with the existing design, I have had to design a new content system to support this responsive redesign.

    That said, in the coming weeks the new responsive design and its new content system will begin to be implemented. The old content will gradually be integrated into the new content system so it can take advantage of the new responsive design. It may take quite a while for this process to complete. As such, the old content should continue to function until it can be converted. However, it will likely be a bit of an eyesore until the work is completed.

    But, before any of this is started, I need to collect feedback on the new design. I have tried to make the new design compatible with modern web browsers, both desktop and mobile browsers, but I don't have an adequate way of testing certain platforms, notably Mac OS and iOS.

    Before you try the new design, please keep in mind that I have decided to drop support for certain browsers that are largely obsolete, namely Internet Explorer version 10 or below. Internet explorer 11 should still work. Any browsers released in the last 3 years should work, which happens to coincide with the majority of our users.

    With that said, you can find the new design here. Keep in mind that not all the functionality has been implemented yet, as I am still trying to finalize the new website design first. Thank you.
