Botting getting very sophisticated

What are you doing that prompts all these whispers?


My mage farms certain spots and laps for lotus quite a bit. No one has ever whispered me asking if I were a bot.

They can get really impressive if the maker puts in the time.

I just got another Blizzard letter in the mail, another confirmed kill!

Check this out!

Then Post on your Main toon then what are you afraid of?

obviously they are strat live bots. nobody farms righteous orbs all day long for 5g each…they do if they are automated botting.

First it started with my 18-20 hour a day farming obsession.

Then it was the lvl 1 accounts I made in reply to another lvl 1s set up that stepped in on my turf.

Then it was the multiboxxing with summoner groups set up. Some people were not aware of the summoners and assumed I teleport hacked.

I had to break the stigma, being a social game, I even took people along with me and split the lotus up. It was quite fun summoning 2-4 other people and we split up the zone, I had macros to call out the spawn. We were doing 4/4 lotus per hour when luck was with us.

Wasn’t always the same people either, I put some effort in to make friends out of enemies. People just didn’t understand me and assumed the worse.

I pumped lotus in on my faction for cheap, slashed prices huge at bwl release to help everyone out.

Sounds like you’re talking present tense. I mentioned earlier my lotus farming was past tense, but I suppose any current lvl 1s probably still get reported for “botting” even though they’re not.

Bots are using fly and teleport hacks.

Why are there always people in here defending botters?

And you were so offended for being confused for a bot you didn’t bother to reply? I too will send a courtesy whisper before reporting bots, get over yourself.


Oh no a tiny pink chat line popped up in your box in the corner of the screen the absolute horror!!!

Just an update, this person has been doing the same thing for many days straight. They have been reported so many times, and they have not logged off once that myself or any guildies have seen. Still at it to this day, a sub is a sub is a sub.

Quit assuming what others feel. Annoyed is the correct term.

When ever I replied all I get is salt thrown at me. Why would I open myself to that?!?

Seeing the bigger picture is, I don’t have to reply at all. Makes no difference how anyone feels, I just simply don’t have to reply to anyone for any reason.

The person sending you a tell is being considerate, they don’t want to report an actual player as a bot, it’s the whole point of asking. I’ll say it again, get over yourself.


I’m guessing it was 4 Mages and 1 Priest, else that would be a raid.

Sounds like you’re expecting these characters to be run by a multiboxer, but they weren’t moving all together, therefore bot…?

I don’t reply to random level 43 Mages bothering me, either, so this isn’t really proof of anything.

If you think they’re botting, report them. Detailing it here on the forums does literally nothing.

Scripted path and movement is very easy to bot, especially if they’re on a circuit. I saw a level 33 rogue running through Duskwood for grave moss. Exact same path each time. He even stealthed in the exact same spots to avoid mobs.

In Badlands, I’ve seen dozens upon dozens of bots with scripted movement paths or patrol segments. You can even screw with the hunter targeting algorithms to get them to leave, or even kill them by kiting too many AoE mobs onto them.

I said before this is not my main, not that it shows your level when you get a tell from someone. Detailing how a new program is running so people can be aware of it is helpful, at the very least. If you did not understand what I meant about not running together I will explain it further for you. The characters would run from point A to B to C to D and never differentiate from those runpoints, all running maybe 10-15 secs 1 behind the other. This is impossible to do for anything other than a program. I think it is good for the community to posts experiences of bots so that others know what is going on.

You can only whisper people on your main?

Post on your main. Your not forced to change it on the forums. Pick your main and leave it alone. Otherwise your input is less valid. It shows you dont completely stand behind what your posting. Anyone who comes to me with anything that has that lack of conviction is subject to be written off. Most of the world is this way. Food for thought.

Yes because that makes sense posting on an online gaming forum. Because the people breaking the rules are punished I can be sure I would not be harassed for constantly speaking against them.

There we go
