I have a friend I know irl that bots. He quit playing legitly about a year ago when he sold his lvl 100 something account for $100 (which tbh is a lot considering that I have another friend that got fed up with Jagex and bots, and then on top of that got hacked who had a 138 account with decent skills and got $110). So now he bots and gets money on an account and then just sells it. He actually thinks it's funny that in a year of botting multiple accounts he hasn't been caught. If some bot owners are like this where they just don't care about the game anymore and want to make some money off of it I don't think we're ever going to see an end to bots.
Come support my max total goal here.

Briobe122's 10-step guide to staking:

1. Get cleaned
2. Vow to never stake ever again! (very important)
3. welfare tds and get claws
4. kill glacors til i get boots
5. bandos ffa or more tds til i have around 50m
6. realize that it is far too hard to rebuild using steps 3, 4, and 5
7. give up the vow to never stake again
8. go back staking and make your bank back
9. if you failed at step #8, Go back to step #1
10. if you succeed at step #8, you will eventually feel the need to make money for rich people stuff, have a bad day of staking, then get cleaned anyways

Pain is just weakness leaving the body.

Woah, so bots do clues? Crazy.

I doubt bots actually do the clues, just get them for the noobs who cant' be bothered working hard for them.

Never really cared much, RS is way too grindy, I really began to see it as less of a game. The play:work ratio is waaaaaaaay to low. Hence the reason I quit playing video games for the most part, aside from minigames on sites like FunOrb (not anymore though, Jagex is in the toilet). :)

So I was checking my Facebook, and I looked over on the side where they have the Ads and this is what I saw.

Are they really that big now? It's pretty shocking to me, anyway.







Wowzers! I would have reported the AD right away to Jagex.

That's the point here: it doesn't help reporting adds or bots anymore.
I report at least 10 bots a day. The ones I see every day in my homeworld at the same spot. I even monitor a L132 who changes skill every so many weeks after hitting 99.
First it was fishing sharks at Catherby for weeks, now it's powermining iron east of ardougne. I report it every time and so do other people around it.
Yet it's still there. I'll keep reporting but I doubt it actually contributes a thing...

This is something I have noticed sometimes too. The same high-level player (actually bot) who I have reported multiple times still just keeps playing. Jagex really needs to get better at banning bots.

I was training crafting at the GE last night and this firemaking bot was using all 4 rows of fm spots there. He was about level 80 something and wearing elite black armor (which I think looks beyond nooby, I can't stand looking at it). He only had 3 ranked skills, 1 of them firemaking so I'm 100% sure he was a bot (also the way he'd move). Me and a few friends made efforts to stop him by making a line of 5 fires or so in all of his spots and he got stuck for a good while, but he was persistent since he was a bot (lol). In the end I gave up and decided not to think about it. I just hated seeing that elite black armor noob botting for some reason...

It isn't that they suck at it (which is undeniable) as much as that they just don't give a [cabbage] anymore.

You know what types of bot I hate the most? Training bots. Bots that steal/train at your training place. Go bot on Rat or some shizzo! Get the fudge off my precious Armored Zombie, lulz!

Exactly my thought. I had this wonderful spot to train combat where I actually got 350-400k solid per hour. I think it has something to do with the ROW drop table, anyway I used to be the only one training there but recently it's just packed there :(
So gotta find a better spot, maybe something hard to reach, dunno...

I think it's because these high level bots are guarranteed to cotinue paying for membership that Jagex doesnt take action against them. In all honesty, it makes a great deal of sesnse

What really pisses me off is their lazy stance towards bots.

A had an irl friend who quit just yesterday because he got that [cabbage] "you have a macroing minor so we halve your exp herp derp"


He never botted, never broke rules, nothing.


The balance of runescape stands on the edge of a knife. Stray but a little and it will fall. what makes it harder is Jagex insists on standing on one foot.

bots wear the ugliest ass outfits, learn to wear drag boots and glorys not accuracy ammys fools
Granite body/drag skirt gives you all away



Skirt because it's cheaper than legs and gives good defence, granite because they haven't done Dragon Slayer, and if a bot is wearing an accuracy ammy then it's just a dumb or unknowing bot owner. Doesn't matter if they're given away anyway, people don't report and Jagex doesn't perma.


Also granite plate because it is stronger than Rune
