Christmas Donation Special
It's that time of the year again. The one time we have a Special Donation deal. It's going to be slightly different this year, get hyped for the Santa hats! Here's how it works.
Between now and December 30th, get 20% bonus Tickets and Donator Points when donating with Bluesnap/Plimus or PayPal. The 20% bonus does not apply to ZayPay, however:
Based on the amount of tickets you redeem, you will have a chance to receive a bonus Santa hat! This chance is equal to 50% of the tickets you redeemed. This is how it will work.
If you donated $30, you will receive (30 + 7 bonus) x 20% bonus = 44 tickets. This means you'll have a 22% chance to receive a Santa hat when you redeem (50% of 44 tickets).
But wait, there's more! Santa hats will be removed from the Magic chest on December 30th, meaning you will no longer be able to obtain them in-game.
Firstly, I am sorry for the delay in the update I began working on last month, I've had a lot of things going on in real life and haven't been able to completely focus on ForeverPkers. However I am not cancelling the update, I am still thinking about it and some other updates that I will include along with it. However, since we are almost half way through December I will have to delay the 'big update' which includes a client update, until at least after December 25th. There are a few reasons for this, mainly, I do not wish to run into any client issues when a lot of people are trying to play.
However, due to this delay, I will be working on some great changes that will be coming later this month, before the client update, that should be really awesome.
Enjoy and have a great week.

|Hey everyone, here's a few bug fixes and updates for you today. Mainly involving Magic, the Donator zone, and the KBD.|
-Food glitch is fixed!
-Granite maul now has a .6 second higher delay before you can use the special attack.
-Fixed a bug when casting magic while holding a bow, if you were on Rapid, you would cast magic faster.
-Magic attack and defence now take God Reputation into account when calculated.
-Magic defence increased majorly depending on your magic defence attribute, also Magic defence now more heavily relies on your Magic level.
-Fixed a few bugs similar to the attack and strength weapon bug that was fixed earlier on, this time dealing with ranged bonus.
-Fixed some bugs with the Runescape Guide dialog. He would ask to reset your defence if you are an Instant PK account, which didn't make sense.
-The TokHaar-Kal and Completionist capes will now protect arrows, like the Ava's accumulator.
-Primal weapons buffed by +15 Strength bonus each. These are meant to be the most powerful weapons in the game, and due to their rarity, they deserve this much strength.
-You will now only lose PK Points from teleporting while in combat with another player, 5% of your total PK Points, maximum of 50.
-Bolt racks are now purchased 10 at a time for 1 PK Point.
-KBD drop rates increased.
-Dragon full helm now has 12 strength bonus. Dropped by KBD only, with a very rare chance to drop.
-You can no longer drop items worth over 5k while in combat with a player.
-Boss Portal added to Donator zone for Elite Donators. Free teleports to: Giant mole, Dagannoth kings, Chaos elemental.
-Evil Chicken's lair added to Donator zone, with black dragons and a King black dragon spawn. Drop rates lower since it is not the wilderness.
-Chaos elemental spawns in Donator zone, where Cosmic altar normally is. Drop rates are lower since it is not the wilderness.
-Otherworldly beings added to Donator zone, drops coins and Shiny keys only.

Loot Share UpdateLoot share is supposed to be about "sharing" right? Well, finally it is! Before, our loot share system was non-existing. The loot share button was only there to display loot to the clan, it may not have even been required to be on to do so.
With the new changes to the Loot Share system, sharing loot with your clan mates has never been easier. All drops are now split equally between clan members that are nearby, expensive drops being displayed in the clan chat. However, the player most damage will receive most of the loot, as usual.
If there are any issues with the new loot share system, please point them out in the thread linked at the bottom of this post. Thank you!
More Drop ChangesA load of changes have been made to most monster drops, mainly to the Chaos elemental. I will name the main ones, but not all of them (yet). I made a new change which allowed me to check drop rates much easier, in order to put them in a much more "logical" state. Basically, I can now make all the drops make sense. The reason for some of these changes is because I realized how actually terrible the drops were.
-Chaos Elemental Drop rate increased by 250%
-Dagannoth Mother Drop rate increased by 200%
-Many item drop prices have been adjusted, mostly increased, so you can earn more profit by selling them to the general store
-New item drops for many monsters
Chaos ElementalThe impossible, is now possible. The Chaos Elemental now has 2 different attacks. Magic, being red, and ranged, green. It is possible to switch between prayers to take much less damage, and is recommended if you want to attempt more than 1 kill per trip. He also deals a little less damage, and has a little less health.

|Hello everyone, here is a small update that I've been working on since the last one. The next update which will come later in the week will involve more monster drop improvements, and a new Slayer Dungeon which will bring some PvP in the mix.|
Here are the changes:-Papyrus is now for sale in the Donator Point shop and the Vote Point shop! 1 Ticket for 50 Papyrus or 50 Vote Points for 25. Papyrus can be used on any noteable item, to turn the item into a note. This can be useful when killing creatures that have a lot of drops, so you can bank less often. These are meant to be semi-cheap so you can take them with you into the wilderness. Papyrus is and will remain tradeable. If any bugs are found with the Papyrus, please submit the bug on the forums or to a Moderator immediately.
-You are now required to be eligible to fight your target, to receive the person as a target. This means, Instant PK accounts can get anyone as a target, trained accounts will only receive a trained account as a target if they are within 5 levels of each other. The main reason for this change is to put pures in a more playable state, since it will be easier to find a target as a pure and you will not receive a main as a target if you are a trained account and cannot change your levels.
-You can no longer receive a target while in Varrock (change was not mentioned last update)
-The chance to receive a Potential Drop when fighting a target has been doubled.
-Hotspots in the wilderness will now give you Potential for each minute you stand in one. 10% for low, 20% for medium, and 30% for major hotspots. Hotspots are Edgeville (low), Hill giants (medium) and East dragons (major). Hill giants and East dragon teleports can be accessed under the ::pk menu.
-Wilderness chest now requires 250,000 coins to open, giving 7.5k-20k per thieve depending on the number of players on. Level 1 Thieving is the only requirement.
-Magic Chest (15 Tickets) can now give you any item from the shop, excluding papyrus, fire cape, and tok-haar kal. This also includes Party hats, H'ween masks, Santa hats, Divine spirit shields, and Magic keys. However, the rares (Hats, Masks, Divine) are twice as rare as the other items. This means, you have about a 1/8 chance to get a rare, or so. This will automatically update when the shop changes, meaning the different color party hats received from the chest will change weekly until they are removed.
-Pandemonium Zombie mini-game removed until there is time to solve the issue with it.
-Expanded Edgeville safe spot to allow spawning food anywhere in Edgeville (finally).
-Slight changes to the PK Point and Target Point shops, to make prices more balanced.
-Slight price changes to certain items to keep the economy balanced.
-Crafting XP rate reduced by 30% (it was really fast).
-::pricecheck command fixed and enhanced.
-The 5% PK Points you lose from teleporting has now been capped at 50 total.
-Black dragons max hit reduced to 15, from 30. All dragonfire resistance is now based on anti-fire potion, magic prayer, and all anti-dragonfire shields. Each will add more of a damage reduction, up to 100%.
-Shops that deplete now restock slowly, the Onyx in the crafting store will restock once per minute (You can't see when it restocks since it doesn't show a 0 when there are none in stock)
-Wilderness Slayer Dungeon in the works!
You can discuss this update on the forums here.
Hope you all enjoy, and have a great week.

Economy ResetThe economy has been reset, players have received back a majority of their spendable points, now including some changes:
- All target points are returned.
- Maximum of 15,000 PK Points returned for all players.
- 20% of your Vote Points, up to a maximum of 1000 Vote Points are returned.
- All trained stats will remain the same, including God Reputation
Why the reset? There was a dupe which would give the player max cash. The solution that sounds easy would be to remove all the coins from the economy, however there are many expensive items bought for coins, unfortunately it is too late to fix the damage.
I apologize that this reset has to happen, but hopefully the new changes will help the server have a better economy in the long-run.
Economy ChangesA few changes have been made to the general economy, putting the main focus into adding more exciting rewards for slaying monsters and bosses.
-Shops only buy items worth 50M or less, changed from 100M (prices not effected, due to next part)
-Shops buy items at 40% of the regular price to reduce cash inflation, some prices have been adjusted and others will be if necessary
-Loot table changes to King Black Dragon, Chaos Elemental, Zombie Champion, Dagannoth Mother, Dagannoth kings, Giant Mole, Ice Trolls, Fire Giants, Red Dragons. Changes may be slight or even unnoticeable, rates on rare drops were not changed, only additional drops have been added. More to come soon.
-Items removed from shops: Adamant pickaxe, rune pickaxe, dragon 2h, Helm of Neitiznot, possibly more.
-Rate of dragon halberd and Berserker/Warrior/Seer/Archer rings drastically reduced
-Re-balanced Gem crafting in Al-kharid, for making profit when crafting.
-Chaos Elemental can rarely drop a Dragon 2h, this item may be worth something in the near future.
- Pandemonium Zombie mini-game has been fixed.
- Remember that we have added a new rule, you are no longer allowed to donate for another player in exchange for items. Abusing this rule will end in punishment. This is causing too much trouble for us to deal with, due to all the scamming.
Discuss the update here.
Hope you all have a great weekend!

Quick update about the recent PayPal addition. You will now receive the correct amount of Bonus Points for donating for the different packages. For those who did not receive their bonus points, they have now been added manually. You can receive them by logging in and typing ::redeem.
Also, I have added a separate Bonus Points system to ZayPay donating, from now on you will receive 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 bonus tickets depending on the package you select on ZayPay.
More to come soon.
Have a great week!
|Update by James on Saturday August 16, 2014 10:14 PM CEST|
I have introduced a new payment method for Donating to ForeverPkers, which is PayPal. If you wish to donate with PayPal, you can use this link: http://foreverpkers.net/paypal/
The Membership packages are not quite set up yet (The few extra tickets you receive) but they will be very soon.
How long should it take after donating to receive my points?
They should appear instantly after the payment has gone through.
I have also worked on a new voting system which I will be implementing soon, it will have a different setup and a few different reward types.
|Update by James on Monday August 11, 2014 7:32 PM CEST|
Server OnlineJust a reminder that the server is back online. Sorry that took so long, it was out of my control.
Be sure to check out the new source that may replace the current ForeverPkers, if you haven't. We need all the feedback we can get to get this server back to being as good as the original is. Check out the update below for download links.
Have a great day.
|Update by James on Sunday August 10, 2014 4:22 AM CEST|
The server has went down due to the payment being late (I didn't realize it was due) I apologize for the inconvenience. The server will be up as soon as the host checks my payment and puts it back online.
I do have some good news, I have got the "new source" up and running for testing. I know it is a little laggy for people in the US right now, but I will be upgrading the upload speed which should hopefully fix the lag.
Note: The exp rate is extremely high. This is for testing. All progress will be lost. Once the community has decided whether they want this source to be the new source or not, we will be running only 1 server. Until then, both servers will remain online and playable. For now, I need help finding bugs with the new source so I can fix them before release.
Reasons you should vote for the new server:
-10x more stability (no crashes, meaning no downtime)
-Can hold 10x more players (up to 1,000 rather than only 100)
-10x more content (newer RuneScape content: More items, Summoning skill, Curses)
-New client (Fullscreen, music, quickprayers, etc.)
-Larger player-base (More people prefer this era of RuneScape, I know 317 is awesome, but it's time to move on)
-No food glitch (No more "I ate!!")
-Donator Rank is not yet added for Donators
-Donator Shop is not yet added
-Vote points are given back, but only 1% of them. This is because we will be using a new system where you can only get 1 Vote Point per day from voting.
-Kills/Deaths/PK Points are returned, but adjusted to the rates of the new source (You earn less PKP)
-Not all shops are final (they are always subject to change, feel free to suggest on the forums)
-Your password is the password you have on ForeverPkers after you used ::changepassword. If you did NOT use ::changepassword, you will have an old password. Once the original server is back online, I will make the ::changepassword command also change your password to the new server.
-I may be missing a few things that I can't remember at the moment
Hope to see some of you here! Download links are below.

Normal Client: here
Have a great weekend.
