Does anyone else have problems with farming bots on their realms?
They have a gear full of BoE, most green, maybe one BoP from a quest. They don't have a guild. They don't have a PvP rank. They are mostly hunters. If it's a hunter it mostly has an owl named Owl (default). They have names that you make make up in a second or by just hitting the keyboard with your head too.
I've been messing around with one I found on Shadowsong called Pets. He's clearly a bot as he meets all the criteria I mentioned. Just look at how fast he got to 60!
Anyway, I found that they are scripted to press 'accept' to BoP items. Turns out this works for group invites, guild invites and best of all.. Duels.
Leaving them with 1% then watch them follow their scripted paths into death is so much fun :P
Do remember, farming bots spoil the fun. The real fun is doing it yourself. And... you're from Newcastle as well? Ah well, you're the second person I've seen being a geordie. I'm from around Hazlerigg, near Wideopen, y'know?
Whay aye man, I live over in Newburn, I can see the Tyne from my bedroom window - True geordie, like :)
Well nah! My dad's a councillor for that area.
what i like to do to bots is simply tag a mob right before they attck it. they will kill the mob for you and you loot it. was in tyrs hand the other day on my warrior. rigtht before the bot attacked, Hunter BTW with an unnamed boar, i tagged it by my shoting the gun, i had i tagged he killed it i looted, and guess what was on that mob? a glowing brightwood staff :) sold that baby for 700g
Yeah I just recently reported an obvious botter. I was aoe grinding the murlocs in dustwallow marsh, on the way to my destination I noticed a 40 lock killing the turtles that straddle the coastline. I grinded for 4 or so hours and came back only to see the same guy killing the exact same things. He was guildless, rankless and when I inspected him he was full of green boe's. I watched his attacks and each pull was identical. He did not reply to whispers as well. If he got down the 30 percent health he always drank. Over the next couple of days everytime I went to that spot he was always there doing the same thing so I reported him. I hate botters, I mean I invest so much time and frustration into my characters only to see some doosh bag taking an easy way out.
I didn't make it!
Botters are fun. I've found many leveling in Tanaris and its pretty funny. See, what I do is spam them with invites and get them to let me in there party if that doesnt work just have target of target on and start tagging all there kills. Blizzard has killed off over i think it was 10,000 accounts that had/have ever botted. Even people who botted about a year ago got banned. Most of the botters should be gone soon.
P.S. 20 days is easy to get to 60, I've gotten a hunter to 60 in a total of 6 days 12 hours 10 minutes /played time
Ha ha, try and get them into your group (I don't know how, maybe the bot will accidently accept one?) and set yourself as master looter :D
Free lewt and expirience XD
Botters are programmed to auto-accept BoP items when farming. The same auto accept works for things like duels and invites too.
Man, I gotta try that some time. They are all over Azshara.
