Stream of Bots in HoL -Unacceptable- (2)

First thread reached post cap
http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/7199031751?page=1

If you take a quick gander at the entrance to HoL on any realm you will see hundreds of bots, mostly 85 paladins, going into HoL. When I say hundreds I mean it. This has been going on for days now. How is it not been fixed nor the bots banned? They are botting 24/7 and its clear to everyone who happens to fly by there.

The general consensus is the same:
Level 85+
Scroll of Resurrection or MoP Vendor greens
Classes with heavy AoE
Armory shows hundreds of Loken kills
All using the same 3 paths
Trys to use Jeeves/hunter pets (all npcs really)
Many will try to immune with pally bubble or the like as to not be attacked.

Few pictures and videos:

It seems that when you report certain bots you get disconnected. Happened to me and others:

And this video here shows why they are doing it:

As anyone who checks out HoL can see this is a very big problem. Bots have always existed but CRZ has really visualized this problem.

Lets make Blizzard aware that this is unacceptable. These accounts need to be actioned on the spot. Markets are being overrun with the botted goods and the amount of instances that these botts are using surely take up valuable resources. Is this why realms have queue times? The sheer number of bots running 24/7 are impeding the game experience of many players.

Blizzard may ban in waves but this is a huge wave that needs to be banned right now!

Hai Ecko, glad to see you're still at this.
Is it bad I got bored and tried narrating it to a friend in a terrible Morgan Freeman impersonation after half an hour of watching them last night? I think out of a hundred toons going in and out, five were real people.

I won't quit when the fight is a good one!

Some player out there are real, and I suspect its to see what all the fuss is about. I myself have raked in over 8000+ HKs having a grand old time slaughtering these pesky bots!

It almost makes me wish I was on a PVP realm... Almost.
But I did run it to see what the huh-bub was about... Still don't get it, even if it was alright for Frostweave. I heard theories of the books, but even those are too spotty to be farmed effectively (we had a healer in the guild almost drive herself nuts over them). Though I do beleive there is a town near by that offers quick offloading of vendor trash.

Keep it up, I will try to do my part.

So, is this considered "calling out" people on the forums or not?

Oh heelloo, I remember lurking with your guildies watching the bots last night. Fun stuff. So many paladerps popping their bubble every change the cooldown went off.

I wish I could attack them.

I was actually in his guild for a while. There are 6 of them in there running 24/7.

Technically, it isn't a person, so I would assume it wouldn't be categorized as calling a player out.

They need to be called out imo

I don't know if I should be happy or sad that my server grouping has been left out of this.

Even the bots don't like RP servers.

Go to the guild roster for that person. There's six 85 Pallies very clearly partaking in this HoL mayhem in that guild alone.

It almost makes me wish I was on a PVP realm... Almost.
But I did run it to see what the huh-bub was about... Still don't get it, even if it was alright for Frostweave. I heard theories of the books, but even those are too spotty to be farmed effectively (we had a healer in the guild almost drive herself nuts over them).

Here's the thing, running it once or even 10 times won't give you a good idea of whats going on or how often the books drop. Bots are running this hundreds of times. This instance can be run once every 8 Minutes with an 85 in MoP Vendor gear. All the forstweave/vendor loot plus the books equals good gold per hour.

Plus, for the average player who is not botting there are better avenues for gold. To a botter who can run HoL all night while they sleep and reap the rewards its a gold mine.

I took the armory screen cap in the OP of a guy on my server, Wyrmrest Accord. We have them here and when I was watching this up at HoL last night and this morning, I saw a bunch of off-server bots from other RP servers (Blackwater Raiders, CC, SoE, etc.) as well. I suspect you have them too.

We are not immune. lol

Apparently my post in the previous thread went unnoticed. I'll say it again though: I believe many of these are compromised accounts. This is because friends of mine who have been hacked were then seen botting in places like Tempest Keep, Botanica, etc.

If you cared to read my OP you would see the video I linked as to why they are doing it.
