“hi guyz, plz help me start a goldfarm from scratch. tnx”
Ah, the same classic question you see on various botting forums almost everyday.
PLEASE DON’T BE LIKE THAT GUY.
No seriously, stop posting that sh*t. It’s f**king annoying.
“Why not?” you say,
because that’s what this guide is for! So people won’t need to ask stupid sh*t on forums again! 😀
Anyway, back to the serious stuff.
Part I: Introduction
Botting has been around since like, forever. Back in the old days, it was a lot easier to bot due to Jagex’s anti-botting system being too ineffective; well, until they hired this guy (Mod Weath):
Back in the day you can literally bot for months without getting a single ban. No exaggeration on that one. I personally even botted 40-99 runecrafting on pre-EOC. I’m telling you, it used to be a lot easier.
Is botting or goldfarming nowadays still worth it and profitable?
Why? Botting difficulty increases = less botters = more opportunities
Simple as that. A lot of small-mid scale botters quit botting when Jagex introduced BotWatch. But what did the better botters do? Adapt.
As Jagex’s anti-botting measures evolves, so do botting clients. You might have noticed that the famous botting clients released different technologies a few years ago, like:
- OSBot’s mirror mode
- Tribot’s looking glass
- RuneMate’s spectre
What is botting? What is goldfarming?
Botting (in games, that is), is a way of using some sort of software to gain an advantage by letting the specific software pretty much play the game for you.
Whereas gold farming, is a method of botting whereas the sole intention of the ‘botter’ or ‘goldfarmer’ is to monetize or make money.
See the difference? Botting can be in a form of simply just botting a main account, a secondary ‘pure’ account, or botting multiple accounts to a certain combat level whereas goldfarming is pretty much just for the money.
