    Why does it bother me so much when I find a botting guild?

    So, I observe some guy milling 24/7, crafting Crane Inscription, Vendoring, getting stuck at the post next to the vendor, taking some steps back, running to the mailbox and starting the process again, for the last 11 days.

    I check his guild, its 7 people in total, all with the same achv. points.

    6 of those people have Mining/Herb as professions, also those 6 are druids. (the last one has Inscription) None have ever run a DG or LFR.

    4 ppl are online all day every day. One guy in SW milling (doing the above) and the other 3 farming.

    I reported this to Blizzard a week ago and I understand that they need time to gather evidence and try and put a tripwire in Warden that will catch them out.

    It's obviously 1 single person (as all the achv. points are the same so its 1 Bnet account) but with multiple wow accounts.

    The dude is vendoring the crane inscriptions like everyone is doing, but why does it bother me so much?

    His farming would have no impact on what I am doing - I don't manually gather stuff myself so it's really no impact on my actual game.

    Why do I let this piss me off?

    Because you have nothing else to do? I don't know....go find a hobby and maybe you'll stop caring so much.
    I'm mean because you're stupid.

    Well, my 'hobby' is making gold in WoW, so yeah, I guess that answers it.

    If it bothers you that much, report it and move on.

    Bots piss me off period. They're against the game rule, and they're unjustifiable. No better than any other form of cheating.

    Any and all action should be taken to expose them and ban the people using them. You're fully justified in contacting Blizzard about it.

    Oh, no, I meant something in real life.
