Experience envelope information
Posted by: LinuxKiddy -- 11:55 PM EST
   
If you haven't been following the news, some new test items has been released. one of them being Experience envelopes which some have been raising some questions to.



Both quad and Experience envelope work the same, Experience envelopes that only store 1 Billion experience cost 5 daily coins or 1 Big Malgas (100 kruna) and the Quad Experince envelopes that store 4 Billion experience costs 15 daily coins or 3 Big Malgas(300 kruna). Both Quad and Experience envelopes give you 5 Envelopes each.

Sounds expensive right? considering a 1000 Kruna code costs 9.95 usd. Well actually its not! If you purchase 3 Big Malgas or (Wait to Win 15 Daily coins) It's cheaper than purchasing Experience gems. Experinace gems are 70 Kruna each but Quad Experience envelopes that give you (5) would be 60 Kruna each.

There are trade offs with the envelopes if you're used to using experience gems. Experince gems you have to unequip everything you're wearing and you'll have the option to choose at the spot your standing where to apply your experience. You must move from the spot you sold at or you will not receive experience after selling. The advantage of using experience gems is you'll be able to use all 4.2 billion experience.

Now with Experience envelopes with my research so far with the help of friends, it has shown me that as soon as you get 1 billion experience or 4 Billion using the quad, you can dump the experience as fast as you can use the envelope(less than a second). So the advantages is you can continue getting experience as soon as you use the envelope, both envelopes and full envelopes will take up two inventory spaces but you will not need to unequip at that given time. Both envelopes and full envelopes Seem to stack but I'm not sure at the moment to how high. I've stacked two full quad envelopes (8 Billion experience) just to see that it stacked and not taken multiple inventory space.



When using the envelope it will give you 1 Billion experience or 4 Billion depending on which envelope you've purchased(I have yet to see if it'd not be usable if you've already have more than 4 Billion experience on you) After using the Full envelope it will disappear.

This item seems like a good step in the right direction when it comes to practical items. With items like this and how there's multiple ways to purchase/receive them I've come to the conclusion that Kru is working on a way to please the community with not stepping into Pay to win that much. Now only if they'd open this up to sell the full envelopes to other players and it'd grow the economy with players that might not have a lot of time to hunt.

Server Reset and Client Patch to Nexus V.7.31
Posted by: Vini -- 9:50 AM EST
   
Couple hours ago the servers of Nexus TK were reset to introduce some remarkable changes to the game.

  • The main one is like a dream come true to any Kruna Items fans. The introduction of Fitting Room (shift+F9) which allows you to try some of the current options being at ItemShop before purchasing it. Now it's just a matter of finding the right size you want.


  • The second main change occurred in the incubator. The two laborers there now are working being a counter to not be blocked off by people with mounts or fancy equipment. Daily Coins guy seems to have lost some weight after giving out so many coins in such a short few time. He seems to be getting more tired now as he's only offering Daily Coins every 8 hours instead of 6 hours.



  • On terms of events, Chu Layn sea creature is gone after being spoiled and feed for many days. However, hunters are gonna hunt again since the portal to Iron Dungeon is available once more. To access it just go back to southwest corner of Buya and enter the center of the "Key" eye. Beware that the lava area and Patio are gone, so once you warp into the key you'll get directly into the Dungeon. Therefore, no need to worry about bringing your frozen footlings anymore.

    Here is the complete information about the changes that came with the reset and patch as indicated by GM Mir on DreamWeavers board:

    BOARD TITLE: Dream Weaver
    FROM: mir DATE: 8/19
    SUBJECT: Server & Client Patch - August 19th, 2016
    Server & Client Patch - August 19th, 2016

    - Fitting Room feature: Shift + F9 (Not all kruna items are reflected. Will be updated)
    - Daily coins adjusted, 3 times a day and a coin given with an MQ.
    - Iron Dungeons from Iron Hands Pt.2 open for hunting
    - Malgal shamans cast spells less frequently
    - Chu Layn left
    - Minor updates for subpaths and clans

    People have also noticed they're no longer able to do unlimited minor quests per day (with only 1 of them gaining the experience reward). The system seems to have been reverted to how it was originally, but since this was never mentioned in the post by GM Mir, seems this isn't planned change and might be fixed soon.

    New primogen of Destiny clan
    Posted by: LinuxKiddy -- 11:53 PM EST
       

    (Rebelmagics favorite spot in honor of HealerOfDoom)

    During Koguryos Tribunal, Gelica suprised many as she stepped down as primogen giving the position to RebelMagic.
    After reaching out to RebelMagic, she had some inspiring words to say.

    "It's my honor to help Destiny and the community to under the rebirth of Nexus with our kingdoms.
    I look forward to working with the clans of our Kingdom and the other clans of The Kingdom of the winds.
    "

    With many strong Mentors that guided her along her way such as HealerOfDoom, Maya and Gelica she surely can bring strength to Destiny clan.

    New Elected Primogen of Phoenix Clan
    Posted by: Vini -- 2:20 PM EST
       
    Couple days ago Phoenix clan has had their new Primogen elected by its members. Primarch Jakie was voted to become the new leader of the clan. Jakie has been a member of Phoenix clan for over 4 years now and a council member for about 3 and half.



    "Chaos in the kingdoms lately has affected us and caused upheaval. My first priority is to remind us that we are family and that we will work together as strong as we once were", announced Jakie. The chaos she referred to was directly related to the situation that lead to the removal and exile of previous Primogen, who hijacked the clan for his own personal interests and was removed for violating Primogen and phoenix clan rules.

    The new elected Primogen on the other hand promised that she won't allow such betrayal to harm the clan, and just like the firebird that gives name to the clan, she promised they'll be regenerated and reborn, arising from arising from the ashes of her predecessor.

    Nexus Atlas congratulates Primogen Jakie and wishes good luck on her new duties. May her term be long and loyal to Phoenix, understanding that is the Primogen who works for the whole clan, not the inverse. Jakie surely knows that, but may serve as a reminder to others.

    Viper's New Primogen
    Posted by: Ferro -- 3:58 AM EST
       
    You may recall that awhile back Viper entered lock-down following the sudden banning of the previous primogen, Lexus. Recently, Viper has been appointed a new primogen, Audio, and has since exitted the lock-down. Here's hoping he serves the Viper clan well.

    Posted by: Ferro -- 7:22 AM EST
       
    Around 7:00 AM EST today people started having login troubles. Attempting to login would trigger a popup that simply said System error. Most likely KRU will have this resolved in due time, so please do not panic. We shall keep you posted as our understanding of this situation unfolds.

    Edit: Around 8:30 AM EST, the login troubles appear to have been resolved. Thank you for your patience.

    Server & Client Patch - August 9th, 2016
    Posted by: IcePixy -- 4:55 AM EST
       
    Dreams are answered yet again with a tweak to how the new "Tab" system works, along with a few other small updates. Take a peek:
    BOARD TITLE: Dream Weaver
    FROM: mir DATE: 8/9
    SUBJECT: Server & Client Patch - August 9th, 2016
    This patch separates the target lock and auto target. Tab target lock is reverted back to its original state, and auto target is assigned to 'v' key.

    * How to use Auto-Target
    - Engage: 'v'+ arrow keys to target + 'v' (Target box changes its color to red for monsters, and green for players.
    - To target the next object : Press 'v'
    - To target the previous object: Press Shift + 'v'
    - Cast spells (without 'Enter')

    This patch also includes an internal DB update and some minor quests for subpaths and clans, so it might take a little longer than the usual patches.


    Note: Incubator room also received an update and is now much larger AND comfier too boot! Enjoy the stay ~

    New Orb & NPC Fundraising Results!
    Posted by: IcePixy -- 6:29 PM EST
       
    GM Wony has posted a couple of new posts both on Dreams and Community board within the last few days. The first one on Dreams board is an update of a new Orb in progress called the "Solid Orb of Solution."

    BOARD TITLE: Dreams
    FROM: GM Wony DATE: 8/5
    SUBJECT: New Orb in Design
    Solid Orb of Solution

    This orb will respond to voice commands. The commands are GO, KILL, KILL NOW, BUFF, BUFF ALL, OCTA and DO. (Make sure your microphone works) Cost is 3 ambers and 10 acorns.

    - GO: Teleports you to the most rewarding cave automatically
    - KILL: Mass room targets all monsters, AC 250+, blind, para, vex, venom, and will HF repeatedly at no mana cost if monster is still alive.
    - KILL NOW: For those who do not want to wait with previous 'KILL', this will kill all the monsters instantly.
    - BUFF: Harden bodies me for 3600 seconds. We don't think anyone will need 'BUFF' with the new 'KILL', but it's there, just in case.
    - BUFF ALL: Harden bodies the entire group for 3600 seconds.
    - OCTA: 8X Exp & Drop for 3600 seconds.
    - DO: Executes GO, BUFF ALL, KILL NOW.

    We've seriously considered 'LOOP' which will repeat the whole DO cycle indefinitely, but we thought that it could actually ruin the game, so we took it out.


    We also received an update on the NPC Fundraising Event that was going on for a while ~ Top three donators are going to receive a mark ~ though they don't seem certain as to what to call it. Take a look below:

    BOARD TITLE: Community
    FROM: GM Wony DATE: 8/8
    SUBJECT: Fundraising result for NPC's
    I thank all those who generously contributed to help out the NPCs. I was getting really tired of their whining and was about to fire all of them. With your generous donation, we can keep them quite for now, for a while, maybe, I don't know.

    Over 160 people donated a little over 121.4 Mil. Thank you very much. The top 3 donors are Revelation (60,000,001), BagOfChips (10,100,100), and Huntyr (10,000,001). These citizens will receive a special legend mark in recognition of improving NPC lives. I told Mir that the mark should read 'Helped keeping whiny NPCs shut' but Mir insisted we don't use that. Sometimes, I wonder where Mir's loyalty lies..

    Now there is a rumor going around that I stole from the donation. That's preposterous. Do not believe what you hear from the NPCs. They are not letting their best speak to you. They lie and steal. But not to worry. I will build a great wall between the citizens and NPCs, and I will have NPCs pay for that wall. That ought to solve our balancing issues.

    Obviously, the community is able to acknowledge that as amazing as the new orb sounds, it's quite unlikely to EVER be implemented.

    On a side note, Nexus would like to Congratulate Revelation, BagofChips and Huntyr as Top Donators! Enjoy your new rare marks:

    Special thanks to BagofChips for meeting with us to allow is to capture picture of his new mark.

    Mepmep Wine Dyes
    Posted by: Ferro -- 7:40 PM EST
       
    The Mepmep Wine item recently acquired from Chu Layn's event brings up a window prompt, upon use, listing 4 clothing dyes to choose from. I was unable to find any volunteers, so I have decided to model the dyes myself, using SetZe robe, the 3rd year wisdom clothes that do not react strangely with dyes. Below are the results, from left to right: Maroon-ish, Teal-ish, Sea-ish, and Grape-ish.

    If you havn't been around the kingdoms lately a new tent in Buya Gathering has been put up by a Shreadder and DailyCoin.

    In this tent you'll find Two npcs by the name of Shreadder and Dailycoin.

    Shreadder will destroy any item you gave him.

    Dailycoin will give you a Dailycoin.

    You may receive a Dailycoin every 6 hours that can be traded in for a random box.
    The more Dailycoins you have to turn in, the better the chance of a rare box will be given to you.

    there's Information floating around saying the max is 20, I will confirm that later on.

    In these random boxes it has been reported that
    Vortex armor, Weapons, plates has been given to the community.


    The results of this has made the Tent become a AFK room basically.

    This might be an attempt to level out some of the
    high prices of items if KRU doesn't take the items back.

    Hello Kingdom~

    Hi everyone, how are you? I am back! Did you miss me? hehe
    I missed you all.

    It was a very nice and relaxing vacation but too short :)
    One day I went to the beach all by myself because I wanted to have my quiet time alone in the early morning. I put on my Blue and plum beach skirt with warm sweater and for the rising shinny sun, I put on my Lilac Sun Visor and my Sun lilac glasses and also I brought the Blue Whale Skin Flippers just in case if I want to jump into the ocean. Of course I had my Marine bathing garment in my beach bag.

    I took a long walk on the beach and I found something very funny. I stopped by at a small cafe around the corner to grab my morning coffee, and the waitress wore a white frill apron and I said oh, it's the Tea Skirt :) I saw twin girls who wore the pink and skyblue frilly dresses. I found more. Old lady with a Poodle Strike, a boy with a Green Quiggy Pack, a teenage girl with Silver coin Bag, a lady with wet Blonde Wavy Tail and her little daughter had Blonde Summer Tails, and all the slippers...eveybody wears something from our Itemshop. LOL
    It was fun to match with all the items from the Nexus Itemshop.

    One of the best memories from my vacation is the last day party. I chose the Summer Qi Pao Set and eveybody loved it.

    I hope you are having a great summer too!

    New Oceana Primogen
    Posted by: Vini -- 2:14 AM EST
       
    Yesterday, at the end of the defender's ceremony I took the opportunity to announce and introduce my successor as Primogen of Oceana clan: TheSavior.

    TheSavior has been a member of Oceana clan on multiple occasions summing up to about 7 years, with a short break of 5 months between the first and second periods. He served the clan on multiple council positions in the past, until a year ago he undertook the position of Primarch of the clan. He's also a senior guide of the Shamans and a carnage host. "I look forward to continuing to serve a strong clan and making sure the Waterborn of Oceana grow even stronger. From salt and steel - the tides will rise!", said the new Primogen.



    Nexus Atlas congratulates Primogen TheSavior and wishes him good luck on his new duties!
