ForeverPkers is Online!
Some great news for you today, I was able to finally retrieve the character files. You can expect to be able to login to your account just like you did before the server went offline, and you should have the same stats/items. There are 2 things you can expect from this new server.
The issue causing the server to crash has been fixed.
Events are here! But there's still more to come, I did however want to put up the latest updates due to the fact that the server was down for so long.
What are events? They are a new way of increasing popularity in certain areas of PK'ing. Participating in events is very rewarding. Not only will you receive bonus points or drop rates when killing players and monsters, but you will now also have a chance to get Potential Drops from monsters (keep in mind this is only during the Monster events). Potential Drop chance is increased for bosses and decreased for normal monsters. In addition, your chance to receive a Potential Drop from defeating a player during a PK'ing event is highly increased! New items, including Statuettes have been added to the Potential Drop table. Are you confused yet?
Events are now enabled.
On top of these bonuses, there is also a new type of currency point, called Event Points. There are a few ways of earning these:
-Earning 1 kill during an Event - 25 Points
-Winning 1st place in an Event - 75 Points (adds with previous)
-Kill a player during Edgeville PK'ing - 10 Points
-Kill a player during Multi PK'ing - 5 Points
-Kill a weak monster during Wildy Monster Slaying - 1 Point per 3 kills
-Kill a regular monster during Wildy Monster Slaying - 1 Point per kill
-Kill a boss during Wildy Boss Slaying - 5 Points per kill
A few new items are now in stores! Leaf-bladed sword, karambwan, and onyx bolts (e) to name a few. Or should I say, to name them all.
Leaf-bladed sword: A powerful weapon for slaying, it will double your damage and accuracy against monsters.
Raw/Cooked karambwan: A combo food, can be eaten quickly after eating other food in order to heal more hitpoints, like a Saradomin brew except you don't lose stats. These can be fished, rub an Amulet of glory and teleport to Karamja, and talk to one of the fishers there to teleport to Port Khazard.
Onyx bolts (e): Can be used as a replacement for Dragon bolts, if the enemy is heavily protected against Dragonfire. They will heal you for a percentage of the special attack. They can be crafted by using an Uncut onyx on runite bolts, however you will need a high level in Fletching.
Fishing and Cooking
I took a bit of time to make working Fishing and Cooking skills, it may not interest many of you, but it is meant as a starter money-making method in a way. You can fish Karambwan and Sea turtles, one of which are near the level 50 Wilderness obelisk. To begin your fishing journey, rub an Amulet of glory and teleport to Karamja. You can buy and sell the raw or cooked food in some of the shops.
There has been a small change to the way Potential works. Your maximum potential can now be increased. There are 2 ways to increase your Maximum Potential:
-Have a red skull.
-Risk over 2M, 10M, or 100M, each increasing your Maximum Potential by a greater amount.
Potential can now reach up to 600%, and is earned much faster. However, getting any Potential Drop will decrease your potential, the better the reward the more potential you will lose. It is simply to prevent farming Potential Drops extremely fast. Higher Potential gives you a much greater chance of receiving Potential Drops, more PK Points from kills, and higher drop rates from monsters in the wilderness.
Voting & Donating
Voting and donating are working again. Double Vote points are now in effect and will be on a better schedule, I will try to do double Vote Rewards every weekend between Friday and Sunday. I have been receiving requests to give Donating better rewards, I am going to attempt at making a few changes to allow Donating to be more beneficial.
Firstly, I am aware that some accounts were reset whenever the server first crashed. I will work on taking care of these accounts first, anyone who needs help with an account recovery feel free to PM me and I will try to help with that as well. I will try and get as many account recoveries done as possible.
-::food now gives a worse type of food for all ranks. I just want to higher encourage people to buy food, it's not that expensive but I believe it should be part of the game.
-There are 'perfect' gold bars sold in the general store, you can buy and sell them for 1M each.
-Items sold to shops now increase the shop's stock.
If you have any comments or find issues with the update please leave them below! Enjoy, hope you all have a great weekend.
