Alliance Tips
This section explains how the Nexus Kill Track system works so that you can be successful with any type of alliance.

Things you should know to be successful

   
Global information on Nexus Kill Track system and Alliances

I. Alliance Intoduction

Fact: You can now get Kill credit while grouped. Everyone in the group will get credit. This means you should be careful while you are grouped because if anyone in the group kills something other than a boss your Kill Track will record that kill as well. If you are doing a Greater Alliance and others in the group are doing a Lesser Alliance, ask them not to kill anything else (example: a mage may cast Inferno and kill creatures that will mess up your Greater Alliance).

Fact: When you start a Lesser or a Greater Alliance, it resets your Kill Track to zero. Therefore, you can not use bosses from a previous alliance for the new one. If you kill 3 Monkeys Avengers and 3 Spirit Monkeys and THEN go to the Mythic Tiger NPC to start a Lesser Alliance, you will have wasted your time killing the 6 Monkey bosses.

II. Kill Track Explanation and Examples

The Nexus Kill Track records all of your kills as an array (list). It tracks the creatures you kill and the number you kill of each creature. Your character information, including your Kill Track list, is saved in the game database when you logoff. The Kill Track saves ONLY the last 8 types of creatures you have killed. Each creature is a kill type and the database will record up to 255 kills of a single creature. For example, a Red hare and a Yellow Hare are two different kill types. You can have 255+ Red Hare and 255+ Yellow Hare on your saved Kill Track record.

When you kill something, the kill type goes to the top of the array. If you have killed this type of creature recently, then only the ranking number changes. However if you have not killed that type of creature recently, the kill type goes to the first position "pushing" the 8th ranked type in the 9th position. If you log off at this moment, the 9th type of creature and the number you have killed of that kill type will be wiped off your Kill Track.

Rank Creature Type Number of Kills
1. Rabbit 120
2. Squirrel 2
3. Red hare 5
4. Snow king 1
5. Spirit Pig 1
6. Pig Avenger 2
7. Zinte 1
8. Maletic 2

In the array above, we'll suppose the person is on a Lesser Alliance with Snakes. If the person kills 4 new types of creatures and 10 more squirrels, the pig bosses will be in positions 8 and 9 but the squirrel does not push them further down. For this example the player has killed a Lesser Ghost, Brown Ghost, Lesser Skeleton and Pale Zombie. If the character is saved at that moment, the bosses will be wiped off of the Kill Track and the current count of Pig bosses will be lost.

[NOTE: You should never kill anything in another Mythic cave if you are on any Alliance.]

Rank Creature Type Number of Kills
1. Lesser Ghost 10
2. Brown Ghost 1
3. Lesser Skeleton 15
4. Pale Zombie 5
5. Rabbit 120
6. Squirrel 12
7. Red Hare 5
8. Snow king 1
9. Spirit pig 1
10. Pig Avenger 2

If you log off at this point, you will lose both Pig bosses because they are not in the saved Kill Track of 8 creatures. If the you kill 1 of each Pig boss before you log off, the Kill Track becomes:

Rank Creature Type Number of Kills
1. Pig Avenger 3
2. Spirit Pig 2
3. Lesser Ghost 10
4. Brown Ghost 1
5. Lesser Skeleton 15
6. Pale Zombie 5
7. Rabbit 120
8. Squirrel 2
9. Red hare 5
10. Snow king 1

All you have to do while on an alliance, is make sure the bosses you kill always stay in the first 8 positions, preferably in the top of the array. In the case shown, the Snake NPC will check your array for Pig Avenger and Spirit Pig. This example is for a player doing a Lesser Alliance with Mythic Snake. If there are AT LEAST 3 of each of Pig boss, the Snake NPC then looks in your inventory for the items you were asked to bring. If the items are found, the Snake NPC will take them and reward you.


Lesser Alliances

When doing a Lesser Alliance you need reserve 2 slots on your Kill Track record for the 2 bosses the Mythic NPC asks you to kill. This means you can kill 6 other TYPES of creatures (The number of CREATURES you kill has no importance). To take an extreme example, you could have 3 Item bosses and 3 Key bosses on your track and 255+ Rabbit, 255+ Squirrel, 255+ Red Hare, 255+ Fox, 255+ Wolf, 255+ Cat. The Mythic NPC will still accept your work and complete your Lesser Alliance without any trouble.

You CAN do multiple Lesser Alliances at a time. However, since starting the alliance resets your Kill Track, you must FIRST start the alliance(s), THEN go and kill the correct number of bosses. Although, doing two Lesser Alliances at a time will leave your "free" kills at 4 types of creatures, doing three Lesser Alliances at the same time will leave your "free" kills"at 2 types of creature, etc. You can do up to four Lesser Alliances at a time but it leaves you no room for any mistakes.

If you want to hunt while you're doing a Lesser Alliance, you can hunt ANYWHERE except in other Mythic caves. The mythic NPC you're allying with will NOT check what you killed EXCEPT the bosses he asked you to kill. If you're allying with Dragons, you can hunt in dragons doing while your Lesser Alliance. Just be careful as hunting in dragon will already use 3 Types + Bosses = a maximum of 5 types. Mythic caves have either 6 or 7 types of creatures if you include sentries.

Greater Alliances

On Greater Alliances, you have 6 different types of bosses to slay. This means you can have 2 mistakes before it wipes out any of your previous boss kills when you logoff and your character information is saved.

You may think this is all a mistake but if you kill four different types besides bosses while on a Greater Alliance and you still succeed, well that's because you used a trick without knowing it.

Trick for Greater Alliances:

While you are killing your bosses and by mistake kill three or more of creatures not on your Greater Alliance list, do not panic (but be careful). Using the example above, your Kill Track will be:
Rank Creature Type Number of Kills
1. Squirrel 1+
2. Rabbit 1+
3. Boss A - Avenger 3
4. Boss B - Avenger 4
5. Boss B - Spirit 2
6. Boss C - Spirit 3
7. Boss A - Spirit 5
8. Boss C - Avenger 2

You must avoid killing another type of creature or you will have:
Rank Creature Type Number of Kills
1. Fox 1
2. Dark wolf 1
3. Squirrel 1+
4. Rabbit 1+
5. Boss A - Avenger 3
6. Boss B - Avenger 4
7. Boss B - Spirit 2
8. Boss C - Spirit 3
9. Boss A - Spirit 5
10. Boss C - Avenger 2

BUT if you manage to kill one more boss of each type you have to kill BEFORE you logoff your Kill Track will be as below:

Rank Creature Type Number of Kills
1. Boss A - Avenger 3
2. Boss B - Avenger 4
3. Boss B - Spirit 2
4. Boss C - Spirit 3
5. Boss A - Spirit 5
6. Boss C - Avenger 2
7. Fox 1
8. Dark wolf 1

This shows that you are allowed two free kills.

Therefore if you kill something by mistake while on your Greater Alliance, don't panic! Kill one boss of each type you need to slay which will "push" your mistake off the saved Kill Track. It'll be like if you never killed the wrong type of creature!

You cannot start multiple Greater Alliances because no NPC will accept you as their Champion while you are working for another.

Side note: As for Player Killing, it not known if a "player" counts as one type, or if each "name (path)" counts as one type. Hopefully it'll count as "Player", so you can kill any player you want and it'll only take one slot in your Kill Track. If it's the other case... well avoid going to a Carnage while on an alliance heh! You cannot kill yourself in the Vale - not even with summoned creatures!

Last Thing - Do NOT listen to players who say you can not kill MORE than the number you're officially told to slay. You can kill 255+ of each boss for a Greater Alliance and STILL succeed NO MATTER WHAT as long as the bosses are still in the 1 to 8 positions on your Kill Track.

Enjoy your Alliances, folks.
Moraghul.
