I report these people every day, and the next day when I go there they’re still in the best farm spots either circling and killing mobs or standing still nuking a spot where yellow ‘named’ mobs spawn.
You need to invest more resources in removing the blatantly obvious farmers that swarm desirable farm locations, preventing real players from farming. I can killsteal them because I am much higher itemlevel than them but lower geared players cannot. We don’t share loot. If they do more than half the damage they get the loot.
Here they are in Balankar Mountains, Vern.
…and they’re in every…
Lots of them have equipped titles so that they appear legitimate. Some even have Crystal benefactor titles. Some of them have joined guilds as well. I encountered one deathblade last night and about 20 sorceresses in their generic, knowledge transferred yellow dresses as well as a few artillerists.
Level 50 artillerists love to bot in Tortoyk at this location:
…here they are…again, in every channel…
The ones above are stationary. They stand still and nuke a spawn spot for mobs. The ones in Arthetine circle.
Here they are…need I repeat “in every single channel”? I think not.
…here they are, circling sorceresses. Some of them weren’t strong enough to survive vs the ants. One mindless swarm vs the other.
On to Shushire! Certainly the bots haven’t made it this far…oh wait, it was a week ago that I entered a Chaos Gate in Shushire where bots also entered and 8 of them were bidding on the drops after the other three players and I cleared it. (The bots hit the boss once and backed away from the fight so they wouldn’t die) So yea, they’re here, too.
Now, I encountered a pile of them the other night but I can’t remember where exactly that was. I looked around a bit and found some here:
Here they are…
Next channel, artillerist swarm:
Next channel, sorcs again.
Next channel, yet again.
AGS has banned a lot of bots lately, but these trash piles are evading your radar. You can do more. You need to do more. The game feels dirty when it’s permitted. This shouldn’t take you long to resolve.
In before the trolls that argue that the bots are providing a service or driving the price of items down. I would rather farm for 50 hours and get a few extra things worth a lot of gold for my efforts than pay some garbage people using programs to farm for them to sell to equally as garbage people on some trash website. My time may not be worth a whole lot right now but my integrity is. Someone couldn’t pay me a million dollars to buy gold from this filth.
AGS, do more. Identify ‘problem areas’ and have them actively watched.
I’m not moving on to Rohendel or Yorn or Feiton (as far as I’ve made it) but no doubt they’ve found a spot to bot there as well.
