    Get bots no matter what, unfortunately. Even WoW is still plagued with them.

    You'll see them even after the trial. Those sites make a ton of money, sadly. And they steal people's logins a lot from people visiting their sites with key loggers and such.

    Either you are admitting you bot or you don't seem to think there is anything wrong with someone running faster than a chocobo while being stealth(reduced movement speed to crawl).

    Also looks like you buy gil, which is sad 1 day after launch for anyone to be doing that.

    Unfortunately there is already a bot available for FFXIV ARR with which you can do mining, fishing and also track and hunt mobs.

    Previously, some 10 years ago, whenever I found some bot in MMORPGs that I played, I started to get mad and to report them all. Nowadays, I see that only wasted my time!
    Depending on the structure of the game and also the company, they will always exist and will not rely on our reports to ban them all and for ever.

    It's kind of like a plague or drugs: will always exist. I just do not understand how someone paid monthly something for which he program something to play for him, where's the fun in that? It is a kind of "stupid nerd" I think (e-penis, u know). Do not waste your time with them.

    Bots will alway exist because time is money, and when people believe the time isn't worth the gain and they have extra money they will find alternate avenues.

    If you want to blame anyone blame the developers for making games feel so grindy at times people don't enjoy them. I don't blame people for using them to farm.

    I for one play video games for fun not to feel like a job.

    I've used a game shark before to level, and I've used exploits in games like fable, and skyrim because I want to enjoy myself not sit for hours on end grinding levels.

    You clearly don't understand how current bots work most look almost seamless they play better then some actual players.

    The one above is an example of a unrefined bot. Good bots have what looks like random movements and pathways have delayed combat timers and some ever jump randomly. Companies make tons off money of them.

    There are two types of botters people who own their account and use them for personal gain, and those generally are the most sneaky and make very real looking bots.

    Then there are the companies that sell gold, and those are the ones that are usually very obvious their bots, and they are the ones that steal people's account information. These people will just buy an account then use it to much sometimes at the cost of a ban, but by the end they still make profit. Because once items are sold they are not going to tace everything it's not worth it.

    Then u should stick to single player games my friend, mmos aint for u. The grind is where its at in mmos just go back to EQ, that was grind city( crushbone, orc highway, mistmoore and so many other areas in there). It just makes you work for u to reap the rewards. It sucks that kids are to lazy to enjoy a good grind session now /:.

    Back to topic, i personally have never used a bot, never will. And honestly they dont bother me at all, just put them on the ol blacklist and/or report em end o story

    EQ failed because of that reason....full eastern mmos are grind based. However western mmos have been getting away from that for years. Companies have figured out there is no such thing as a "good grind/ fun grind"

    I can give examples, but time invested doesn't mean you're good, and mmos have changed to reflect that. You used to be able to just grind you way to power now you have to actually know what you're doing.

    Mmos have proven to not have long term life with very grindy based models.

    On a side related note I've played quite a few mmos. WoW, TERA, Rift, GW2, LoL, Secret World, and Dota2. So I have quite a bit of MMORPG experience, and all these games have evolved to make everything less grindy.

    U should slap yourself, EQ is probably the longest running mmo out there ,there is even a new EQ game in the works. And your right because western kids are freaking lazy as hell and dont wanna work for end game.
