My thoughts on RuneScape botting

Hello fellow RS players. 

   I used to be a huge rsfag, but eventually I quit due to the amount of time I was wasting on the computer. However, I have now found a way to play the game without doing anything.

     Macroing? You guessed it. Macroing is basically when you have a "bot" do all the work for you. Doesn't that sound nice? With Macroing (or "botting"), you can obtain millions of cash overnight while doing nothing! What you do is run the RSbot client and select the script you'd like to run (scripts are the "instructions" for the bot). But I'll get back to the setup later.

   An example of a script would be mining coal in the guild, or cutting yew trees near edgeville. Even when you're not playing runescape, your character in game is still completing tasks as if you were. I know you may be thinking, "won't I get banned for macroing?". Here are my thoughts on that:

     Jagex wants you to think that if you bot, you will get banned. However, this is not the case. If you are using a very obvious bot-like script (such as the Sudoku solver), then your chances of getting caught are high, like Jagex warns. But, if you use scripts with low-ban rates (such as mining coal in the guild or cutting willow trees), your chances of getting banned are very slim.

   For example: I had two F2P accounts that I botted on. The first one mines coal and mithril in the guild for 12+ hours at a time. The second one autotypes advertisements in World 1. Do you know which one got banned? It was account #2, the autotyper. While mining coal in the guild, you aren't attracting attention to yourself like you are if you type at an abnormally fast rate. My coal mining account has been botting from the start and currently has 83 mining and 15m in cash + items. The autotyping account was banned after 6 hours of spamming. This shows how you can get banned from Macroing immediately (like Jagex tells us), and how you can use Macroing without even being notice by Jagex.

   I bet you now want to Macro. But how does one Macro? Well, I'm not writing a step-to-step guide on that, but if you'd like to know where you can find guides and tutorials, check out This is the best runescape bot site IMO, and becomes very easy to use after you get to know it. Create an account on the site and find the tutorial forums. They have very easy instructions to follow!

   So those were some quick thoughts I wanted to share on Macroing. It can be very profitable, and at the same time, you can do other things, like living your life (you do have one, right?). Remember that every time you bot, you're taking a risk to get banned. This is why I don't recommend botting for P2P unless if you're monitoring your bot every once in a while (so you don't get stuck in random events), and make sure the bot you're running has a low ban-rate.

99 Firemaking from botting! All too easy ;)

   All in all, botting is a great method for leveling up skills/gaining money without the needed effort. Unless if you don't have anything to lose, I highly suggest researching the script you are going to use before actually running it. This way you can find out if there are some major bugs/problems with the script; a way to prevent your character from standing still for 6 hours without logging out. Good luck and happy botting!!

   (note - I am not liable if your account gets banned from Macroing. If you follow my tips, chances are that you'll be safe from bans. Also, all images used in this post are not mine. They were acquired from random google searches.)
