    Flying in Pandaria at level 85.....WTF!

    So I am flying around the Heartland when Spy goes off and says there is a 85 warlock near me. Then sure as shit he goes flying over me. He was mining and herbing. Then I thought HUH, FLYING??? So, I know there is a lot of reports of boting on these forums, and I know that involves game automation, but do they all allow them to fly? That is breaking/bypassing the game mechanics.

    I took plenty of screenshots - to prove he was moving.

    See for yourself - since i couldnt upload them directly from my pc - avadakedavraa.imgur.com/

    So would Blizzard just throw a 3 hour ban on this - even tho he's flying.... or is this perma-ban material.

    It's more common than you think, and it's usually compromised accounts that are so blatantly abused, since they hacker doesn't care if the account is banned or not.

    Are you sure you hadn't been enjoying some holiday spirits before this?

    It's Botting ive seen it myself also, it was a shaman at lvl 85, mined a node and then climbed a wall with his flying mount, and flew off.

    He's using hacks to "fly".
    You'll notice the mount never flaps its wings, it always runs in the air. There was a thread about this a few weeks ago.

    The code for threedimensional movement has always been "somewhere". I've seen a flying/floating level 60 bot very early in TBC when min. level for flying was 70.

    Once managed to stop 3 of those bots, courtesy of a broken mining node (ie. I was stuck in the looting position). They'd all "fly" over to it, stand on top of the node - and then do nothing.

    One of them eventually moved on his own, at which point I apologised for breaking his bot. He just replied with a smiley.
