Dark Vortex!
Posted by: Metro -- 7:11 PM EST
Earlier today, a Vortex boss was dragged outside of the cave and landed at West Vortex (Anchorite 3 boss). If that wasn't bad enough, the boss got mad and used the darkness spell (where he makes the room dark!) on the main Vortex map. The main Vortex map isn't set to return the room to light after a certain amount of time like the actual cave rooms are, so Vortex went pitch black! It's still dark in there, with no light whatsoever (lowest pitch of darkness). The Archons said it should be fixed soon, so this is definitely not permanent.

We got a screenshot of the actual boss at the gate, as well as a picture of the current dark state! Thank you couple Pummel and Kakio for sending this in to us.

The boss in Vortex

And the aftermath!

More messages from Random Merchant
Posted by: Vini -- 3:08 PM EST
Two intriguing messages from the random merchant have been spread recently with supposedly important information. The first one was heard and confirmed by multiple people, such as TheSavior and Rachel who cared to submit evidence of it to Nexus Atlas (image below). The message given said that “A man lost to the sea may be found”. Currently there's no lead to who this man might be, but asking the help of scholars and historians might be a good option to figure out who does he mean. The second message doesn't bring much news as what he said was something community had already guessed, but still is a good lead to understand that the random merchant is also working on the Diary pages quest. He said “If you combine regular items and Woodland items together you get something new.” This confirmation was obtained by Janken, but so far not much more is known involving the quest.

It is not known if these messages have begun being spread recently or not, but knowing when he began saying that is actually beside the point. What matters now is that citizens have been seeking the random merchant more often to seek his knowledge and he might have more things to say that citizens actually heard so far. Let's keep searching.

Nexus Atlas Needs Funds
Posted by: AllyGator -- 4:12 AM EST
Nexus Atlas needs money again! Our last donation run was in January 2006 and we've finally run out of money. I've added a donation button which goes to the NexusAtlas PayPal account. I promised way back then to keep an account of the money spent and I have done that...even if I didn't always keep it up-to-date. You can see how the money has been spent by clicking here. The Accounting information has always available under the Community tab.

Some of you may think we pay more for web hosting than is necessary but I'd like you to think back to the days when our site was often down; sometimes for a day or more. Our monthly costs have gone up because we were forced to go to a low-level business account due to bandwidth levels we occasionally reach. This level of service provides us with host backup service along with no down time which is a pleasant change from our previous providers. We've also got top notch tech service who have managed to handle every question we've thrown at them within minutes. Something no other host has done. In all, we are happy with them and hope you have been too.

So please, if you are able, donate so we can keep the site online. We are paid up to June 19, 2011.

More clues on Yun
Posted by: Vini -- 4:15 PM EST
KUGNAE -- Last thursday, while strolling near Beard Smith shop, Ninked was approached by the random merchant. Instead of ignoring him, he chose to follow the strange figure who offered him to reveal important information for 5,000 coins. Ninked chose to pay despite the common habit of the random merchant of repeating himself. Yet this time he has said something new: "The lost princess isn't really lost."

It is unsure if he only started saying this recently or if he had been saying this for years and no one really cared about. The fact is: this is another clue that adds up to the Baekho helm found days ago, with only few days of difference between one and the other. Stay on alert for more unusual aspects of the kingdom of winds as they might lead to other clues about what ever happened to Princess Yun.

The mystery of the Baekho helmet
Posted by: Vini -- 4:16 PM EST

As strange as it might be, some of the winter creatures have been dropping more than just snow balls and holiday items. Some people have claimed to have obtained totem rings dropped by the white versions, but the strangest item was obtained at Mythic Nexus by Zylon, who slayed a JoRangYa (white female) that dropped a Baekho helmet. It would have been just another ordinary helmet if not by a single the detail. It was bonded to a person unseen for a long time: "Yun".

According to Zylon, he didn’t know what to do with such finding, but few minutes later he was approached by Goeyu who claimed to have dropped it by mistake and one of the winter creatures took it. Goeyu advised that Zylon should return the item to him as if vile people got ahold of it, it could bring trouble. Intrigued by the request of the Warlord, Zylon returned the item. Unfortunately he forgot to screenshot the item status, but quickly requested Nexus Atlas presence to register the last moments of their conversation.

This raises some significant questions: Who exactly is Goeyu? Why does he carry the helmet of the long time missing Princess Yun?

Hopefully more will be revealed about this.

Happy New Year!
Posted by: Vini -- 10:24 PM EST

It is time to wave goodbye to the old and welcome in the new. 2010 was left behind with lots of memories, good ones and bad ones. Many things happened in the lands of Nexus (read retrospective 2010) this past year, but it is time for the community to embrace the future ahead of us and all it has to offer. What does 2011 has reserved for all of us? Time will tell and Nexus Atlas will report!

Happy new year from all of us at Nexus Atlas!
