    I've seen this happening too -- There were dozens of lv80 paladins of both factions endlessly flying back and forth between Botanica and the vendor at Cosmowrench.

    Well it used to be that inactive accounts would get hacked, SOR for an insta 80 which gets botted through a dungeon for the 7 free days you get from SOR, all mats get mailed to a mule and funds gold sellers. This has been going on pretty much since SOR gave an insta 80
    Whoops, sig too big

    It's almost always the wrong argument to compare yourself to the highest DPS specs out there. "Middle of the pack" is actually where everyone is supposed to be. -Ghostcrawler

    •Yes, this is a roller coaster. Our process is to try things out and iterate if we don't like them. If the churn offends you, just hang on for another week or two.

    Botanica has been a botting hotspot for gold since the start of cata. My friend sold his account for change in t11 and his shaman was doing botanica runs for a couple of months after that.

    they dont called it BOTanica for nothing, it used to be halls of lightning for the glyph books botanica is just easier some of the bots already have the 10k 25k gold achievements on the same day.

    also check lvl 70's in stratholme dunno if they are still doing that method.

    Ive seen bots droping from the sky in SW spelling out words, websites, ect but I have NEVER seen this level of this, this is NUTS

    They've been doing this since SOR came out. Someone did some math after a few runs of botanica and summed up the gold per run just straight vendoring + looted gold, and then calculated in the hours/bots they were doing and it was something like 1m+ gold a day. someone might be able to dig it back up

    Finally got a GM reply about this after a handfull of us went up to the botanica and witnessed this, they are indeed now hacking through scenery and flying without mounts, as if it wasnt bad enough to just bot 40+ toons and somehow get away with it, Blizzards rep said "there is nothing we can do about it at this time" I asked them to get a GM outside of the instance and see what we mean and they said they are unable to do that. They arent making any money from hacked SOR accounts but seems they really dont care enough to even check it out
    Whoops, sig too big

    At first I was mildly annoyed, yea people cheat, so what...But after that response from blizz im fuming...I either got the GM having the worst day ever or they just dont care about the state of the game anymore

    Can't insert pics here but its on http://i.imgur.com/B4qibG5.jpg

    would appreciate if someone could upload the pic ^^
    did... did you take a photo of your screen?

    anyways, I guess that's where paladin botters moved on to from Halls of Lightning. Guess I can start reporting all those bots in bot now.

    More importantly, are those Botanica runs worth it if you're not botting? (vendoring stuff and all that)

    EDIT: Now that I think of it, being a Paladin might make me suspicious to go there.. :d

    depends on your enchanting / tailoring market you can make some serious coin if your DE and getting netherweave cloth specially the bags easy to make

    We got rid of most of the bots in hyjal that where farming humanoids outside of firelands and there are 0 people in Botanica in my realm atm usually though there is like 5-10 85 pallys in Halls Of Lightning.

    unless you're doing it for 24 hours a day I doubt blizz would care

    17 level 80/81 pallies in the Botanica, at 5 o clock in the morning, with just 5 people online in SW.... Pretty stupid. Hope Blizz can break this up soon, even if it *is* less intrusive then duping mounts or honor farming
