Newest Spy Premier & Other Requests!
Posted by: IcePixy -- 9:42 PM EST
   
Spies have had their newest exchange of power as prior Premier Kunai hands the reigns over to Premier Paranoid!

Whilst Ex-Premier Kunai was originally unavailable for comments, She did contact us today with these words for the public regarding her reign as elder and regarding Premier Paranoid:

"After having a wonderful and exciting journey as elder, I have decided it would be unfair to hold the position when there are so many talented Spies able to do just as well, if not a better job than I. It's always good to have change, it keeps people interested and working towards new goals.

Paranoid makes me Paranoid. So he was obviously the best choice. Long time Spy and a great guide, he was an important pillar during my Eldership and I know he will continue to lead the path in the right direction."

Premier Paranoid stepped forth with the following words:

"To all those that came before me to pave the path and those who come after to walk it along my side - together we will continue This Guilds' Great Legacy and write a New Chapter in its' History!"



With those words, I'm certain the Spies can't help but hope for a fabulous future!

Now, onto other matters ~ We've had a couple other posts that may have gone unnoticed, one from my very own favorite CoverGirl and another from Our God (Whom, thank gosh we were able to save) GM Wony! See below for the 'deets!

SUBJECT: Any Mages Have Any Requests?
Hello all mages~

It's Mage Appreciation Week!
Do you have any requests or need something from the Item Shop?
Please nmail me your requests. I will check if I can add the items on the shop. I can put the Christmas items this time if you want them :)

Happy Mage Appreciation Week!

** Make sure to NMAIL your requests to her! **

BOARD TITLE: Dreams
FROM: GM Wony DATE: 9/26
SUBJECT: Mage appreciation week & Fragile orb of ripple
Hi. It's Mage Appreciation Week, and nothing is really permantly cemented here. We will have fun, enjoy ourselves, and tweak if necessary.

The fragile orb of ripple has a few glitches. I apologize. It's a new try, and our programmers wanted a little more time to work on it, but I pushed to be able to release with this patch. The spell is to be casted on mobs, not on people, and overflow will happen on that particular mob.

Please provide feedback, not just mages, but other paths as well, on how these changes affect Nexus in general.

Thank you so much!



Once again, we thank the God's of our kingdom for giving us such great opportunities and appreciation!

Good morning Kingdom~

Hope you are enjoying the Experience envelopes, but are you afraid that you might break the precious full envelopes on your misfortune? I've got a surprise for you. I put the new 'Sacred pendant' that will protect your full experience envelopes. It's available right now in the Item Shop.

I hope you like it :)

Also, for those who didn't get a chance to see it yet, Wony has shared his thanks with the community for our help in freeing him! See his post below for more info.


BOARD TITLE: Whispering winds
FROM: Wony DATE: 9/19
SUBJECT: Thank you!
Whoa! That was something! I am sure glad to be back to normal! I have no memory of what happened. Everybody tells me that I was awful. I am so thankful for all the things you did for me.

As a token of gratitude, I am giving 25% boost in experience for everybody.

AND, if you completed the quest successfully, you will gain another 25% boost on top of that!

WAIT! That's not all. The daily coin random boxes will dispense generous quantities of temporary modulators, and if you have one in your inventory, you will gain another 25% exp. boost. Those 25%'s are compounded, not just added. You do the math. :)

WAAAIIIT! I've got one more. That modulator will boost your crafting skills as well. So, what are you waiting for? Operators are standing by. Keep ringing. Ugh, why is the word 'ringing' giving me a headache?..

Now for those who didn't want to save me and didn't do the quest. Choose your side carefully... Nah, I love you all. I will keep the quest open a little longer, so you can still complete the quest.

Thank you very much, everybody, Enjoy the party. In the meantime, I've got some investigation to do. *Picks up his peasant sword, walks out, yells 'Walsuk, did you invite me to the dinner?'..*




Sounds like its time to get active! Hunting, crafting - whatever your cup o' tea may be!

~Short update on daily coins.
Posted by: LinuxKiddy -- 10:15 AM EST
   

During one of the many resets, daily coins are now 11 hours 30 minutes ( they knocked 30 minutes off it)

-Minor quests are still 12 hours though.

Maevalia has informed me that there is a cap with daily coins, you may only hold/carry 100 coins.
You better watch out because if you try to go over 100 coins you'll lose your daily coin.

If you haven't done so already, check out the walk through
for the Wony power trip quest and do it if you want
a sweet sweet legend mark.

Server Reset & Zombie Apocalypse?!
Posted by: IcePixy -- 1:35 PM EST
   
Trouble in Nexus? With the most recent reset today, came a note on Whispering Winds from mir, take a look below - Seems our God Wony isn't as kind and benevolent as we assumed...

BOARD TITLE: Dream Weaver
FROM: mir DATE: 9/10
SUBJECT: Server Reset - September 10th, 2016


I received a strange and disturbing letter from the NPCs. I posted it on Whispering Winds.

- Fragile orb of experience envelope will be moved to Experience envelope pack in the Item shop.

- Fitting room updating improved.





BOARD TITLE: Whispering Winds
FROM: mir DATE: 9/10
SUBJECT: Wony... The Mighty and Woeful

I just received this letter and I am not too sure how to handle it. It seems to be true ? Wony IS different now, but even I cannot do anything about it. I hope you guys can help me, as this looks to be a serious matter. Here is the letter that I received:

Greetings Good Man Mir,

Whilst all talks referencing NPCs deciding to overthrow authority and rule the world as one commonwealth are of no importance at the moment and constitute pure allegations, what is important is that somehow in the course of yesterday our God Wony has changed? and not for the better.

Wony had a secret meeting with all of us, where he made an announcement that we will see none of that fundraiser money after all. Instead, it will be repurposed for the building of a great big wall. Then to conclude the meeting, we prepared a meal in Wony?s honor, which I must add, he enjoyed particularly well; an established soup connoisseur , he was particularly bewitched by a flamboyant creation presented to him by one of the girls.

So, long story very short; It appears that Wony may have eaten something that was most likely very poisonous, possibly capable of erasing whoever ingest it from reality. These things happen you know, there?s not that much testing going on and all sorts of bugs crawl into real time!

We would have not mind it very much, but it looks like the resulted Wony is set on sucking out our little NPC souls and making an NPC zombie army for himself. Him and his minions roam around and catch all NPCs, bring us to his lair, where through an unthinkable process we are turned into faceless and mindless minions, chanting him praises.

Please address this issue in at once, and as a thank you we will continue to offer our unlimited services all day and night all time-zones far and wide.

Sincerely,
NPC Union


Sounds as though Wony may be creating his own Zombie Army? What are we going to do?!

Wony's DreamWeaver post about Patches
Posted by: Zeromus -- 5:03 PM EST
   
There was no client patch this morning like we've been used to for the past few weeks.
Instead, we got a rare post from Wony:

BOARD TITLE: Dream Weaver
FROM: Wony DATE: 9/09
SUBJECT: Patches

Dear citizens of Nexus.

When I decided to retake the active role in managing Nexus, I was faced with many issues, but my biggest and most difficult challenge was to win your trust back, and to bring the sense of hope and excitement to the community.

As you may have noticed, we've been frantically updating our servers and client over the past few months, at least once a week, if not more often.

Of course, these frequent patches took care of many pressing issues, but it also was our way of saying 'we are serious about making Nexus great.' I believe at this point, we have achieved a reasonable success at fixing urgent issues and winning your trust back.

Now we are going to switch to 'patch when necessary' mode. Please don't get me wrong. This by no way means we will slow down. While patching frequently is exciting and satisfying, it also comes at some cost. One, it encourages us to focus on short term goals, and two, no matter how big or small, patching itself is quiet a time and effort consuming process.

Currently our GMs are working on the latest quest, which will most likely to be released this evening. After this patch, please do not be disappointed or discouraged if you don't see a patch note every Friday as you are already used to. It just means we are quietly working behind scenes more efficiently. I will invite you to discuss about the main changes and directions as we move along.

Things are are looking good, and I am excited about the future of Nexus and our great community. Numbers are up, and I can feel the excitement in the air. Thank you, and I love you all, from the bottom of my heart.

Now, I am getting ready for a party that NPCs have invited me over. As you may know, I have been quite displeased with their attitude and whining. I am surprised by their sudden gesture of hospitality. They may have finally come to their senses and will become loyal, again. Maybe, just maybe they are not that bad after all. But what is this strange and uneasy sensation i am having? I must feel joyous but why is my heart so heavy and cold? Strange, oh so strange...

According to his post, it would seem that we should expect a patch tonight with a new quest! We can only speculate on what this quest might be. Is it related to the recent NPCs revolting against Wony?
We'll just have to wait till tonight and see.

Merchant Guild receive upgraded engraves.
Posted by: LinuxKiddy -- 3:09 PM EST
   
The Merchant guild of koguryo froze their engraving services for about two weeks due to bugs
in the updated/improved engraving spell. They've recently re-opened engraves after their spell
has became updated/partially debugged.

Merchant Elder Acera made an official post shown below.

BOARD TITLE: Community
FROM: Acera DATE: 9/02
SUBJECT: * Engrave Services are OPEN!

Dear Community members,

Thank you for your patience during our engrave suspension period. It was necessary that we be absolutely sure that our new tools work as intended. We strive to deliver the highest quality and professionalism in all of our work and we are pleased to offer our new services to you all.

All engraves will be distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis. Since we expect demand to be high, we also offer over-night engraving services and request only that you cover the parcel fee. The engraved item will be in your mailbox when you wake up the next morning. Or if the parcel fee is too high, we'll simply hand it to you on the next day.

The engrave policy has been updated and can be found on our board located in the Kugnae Gathering. Our prices have also been adjusted to reflect the current market's value. Our pricing, for the most part of at least ((10 years)), has not been updated. The guide circle deliberated for days on the new price schedule and came to a conclusion that would be fair for today's market, all environmental factors included.

Any guide can perform an engrave for you. If you have any questions about our new engrave styles or policy, please do not hesitate to send all messages directly to me or any guide via n-mail. We'll get back to you as quickly as we can!

Effective immediately, 10:00 PM EST 9/2/16, all engrave services are officially open for business.

** PLEASE READ OUR BOARD IN KUGNAE GATHERING FOR PRICING **

Signed,

Acera
Merchant Elder

Many members of the community was unpleased to have engraves frozen for so long but now they're back better than ever!

Server and Client Patch
Posted by: Zeromus -- 5:31 PM EST
   
This morning, like every Friday morning recently, a new patch was released!

As posted by Mir on the Dream Weaver board:

BOARD TITLE: Dream Weaver
FROM: mir DATE: 9/01
SUBJECT: Server & Client Patch - September 1st, 2016

- Fragile orbs of experience envelope available. Experimental. Unlimited use for 1 day, 7 days and 30 days.

- Sold by Woonsoo. Woonsoo will exchange previous envelopes with the new ones.

- Fragile orb of mercenary warrior tweaked. Dedicated targeting.

- Kruna registration code will be available in the Item shop.

- Minor fix for subpath

From what I gather, there is no limit to how much experience you can stack (hold) in the fragile orb of experience. Be warned, it appears that you will lose experience contained in the orb exactly like you normally do when you die... so don't die.
