Similar topic, added comment there: " [Reporting a bot I found]


i’m doing the same as you, im starting to record every bot i come across from now. i reported several of them. the problem is most people on my server are too lazy to report them.
i found them during my oil run in weavers fen video


It was the strangest thing, that bot was going strong in the Starmetal Brightwood area for like the last 4-8 days. It totally wasn’t online today, not sure if our amazing devs jumped on it or if the bot is just on break.

I’ll find out I guess soon enough. Today was a very productive day with little competition from actual players, which is what I suspect to be normal.
