    Sitting in popular BoE farming areas as a multiboxer is going to get you flagged repeatedly by angry players. The GM shows up, does a few things and observes what they believe (and probably rightfully so many times) a bot just repeatedly going to X, Y and Z farming mobs. I emphasize X, Y and Z as very important here. It's something of a hallmark bot behavior and its very easy to spot. Unfortunately when our slaves are running behind the master it kinda looks the same but isn't quite the same thing as 5-10 characters CTM clicking to the same locations over and over again.

    The teleport test is pretty simple. A greater distance than follow and IWT should guarantee that a bot is operating under CTM automated click circumstances if they continue to B-line for the target. Unfortunately most of us have CTM on for interacting with stuff so that's another false flag.

    I don't know if I've ever been teleport tested but sometimes characters just wind up not following or have the appearance of not following. But now that I think about it that was probably a GM randomly teleporting one of them so follow broke and they sat there unattended which verified multiboxer not botter. I'm talking rare circumstances not getting stuck on a random rock in the road.

    tl;dr: Don't give them any reason to suspect you are botting. It's shitty but the more frequently you involve yourself with other players the more likely they are going to abuse the report feature. Because they envy you and they're assholes. It's really that simple.

    Along the lines of teleporting. I've been doing the Freehold Porter/Great Sea Privateer farm (no mount but no competition on a large server). Occasionally there will be an elite mob that comes out of nowhere. One of his abilities is a disorient, he doesn't hit hard, but has a bit of HP. It is also not interruptable, so I have to collect my team back to the statue after he's dead. For the life of me I can't remember the name of the mob, but it is not the 'rares' on that little island, Barman or Accoutant. Could this be a way to 'check' for botting? To see how I react to the random NPC?

    The teleport test as far as I've read is the GM teleporting one of your characters 41 or more yards away from the target. This breaks IWT and follow. The idea being you teleport someone and they bee line towards the target anyway without interruption.

    Maybe they do other tests vs people that arent known to be a multiboxer. Who knows.

    Mind you, ive farmed with 15+ characters for hours almost daily since oct 2017. In public. And ive yet to see any of my toons get moved around on any spot. The only thing ive noticed is that one of my characters could be dead or logged out, when i visit the monitors. As you may know i only visit my monitors around once every 45 min. As im sitting in the sofa or laying in bed and press the keyboard buttons casually. No issues so far.

    So there seem to be some "grace" periode, which you have available, before they will believe you must be a bot. But then again, they do have the ability to also track the periode between each keypress and much more.

    Ive never used melee characters.


    This is my most used farm macro:


    /cleartarget
    /targetenemy [noharm]
    /petattack (optional, class dependant)
    /cast spell or castsequence



    Hunter example single target:

    /cleartarget
    /targetenemy [noharm]
    /petattack
    /cast [@pet, nodead, exists] Misdirection
    /castsequence barbed shot, kill command, cobra shot, cobra shot, cobra shot



    Create a straight broadcast button: this is your favorite spam farm button.

    F.ex button "1":

    Create additional steps as needed as a re-map with "1".


    First keypress = macro to delete all greys
    2nd keypress: single target
    3rd: single target
    4th: single target
    5th: single target
    6th: single target
    7th: single target
    8th: single target
    9th: single target
    10: 3 (mend pet / small heal)
    etc
    etc
    etc instant self heal
    etc
    20th: spacebar (prevent to go afk)
    21 2 (loot-a-arang)
    21 2 (loot-a-rang)
    etc
    etc
    macro to delete all green items
    etc
    insert group heal
    etc
    etc
    and so on.

    Depending on the spot, you may have to adjust a little bit, f.ex if you need to heal a bit more often on one spot compared to another. And you could also re-map to a "aoe macro" in between here and there.


    If the mobs die fast, but its handy to misdirect to the pets, cause the mobs hit hard, cd will reset and you can use it on every mob:
    aoe example:

    /cleartarget
    /targetenemy [noharm]
    /petattack
    /cast [@pet, nodead, exists] Misdirection
    /castsequence barbed shot, kill command, cobra shot, cobra shot, a murder of crows, multi-shot, cobra shot


    If the mobs die very fast and your own health isnt any issues: (no need to misdirect)

    /cleartarget
    /targetenemy [noharm]
    /petattack
    /castsequence barbed shot, kill command, cobra shot, cobra shot, a murder of crows, multi-shot, cobra shot

    (the entire area will be 100% filled with crows in the air, fun times).


    Most of my farm buttons have around 200 steps to cover most situations.
    "So, 200 keypresses, then it goes back to step 1 again".

    I use the loot-a-rang toy every 1 to 1,5 min. Just get a stopclock and make sure you atleast have a step, so you loot around once per minute or so. That way you dont miss any loot. If need be, create a doublestep to loot twice.
