TRiBot Botting Guidelines

Recommended Posts

In this thread, we're going to aim at discussing some of the known techniques and practices towards safe botting. While it is impossible to prevent a ban, you can use some of these suggestions towards your botting to help mitigate risks towards your account. Most of this is all well known, we just wanted to organize these tips into a thread to help get you in the mindset of how to practice safer botting.


Your goal should be to emulate a normal player in game, we can do this through several ways but these three are the major ones that you as the player have an impact over.

1.   Session length   -   Thinking like a normal player, you should set up your bot for average lengths 1-3 hour sessions with breaks built in. And while a normal player could play for longer than that, just realize if you choose to bot for a 8 hour session you're adding more exposure to your account in game which could result in getting caught. A safe practice would be to set a total time you would expect to play during the week, and divide your sessions up so your total game time does not exceed that value. (i.e. 30 hours in a week, split across five 6 hour sessions +/- 2 hours)


2.   Location changing   -   Your goal should be to minimize your account's exposure in game and location changing can really help you with that. If the Script supports other locations, consider moving your account to another location for less exposure. If other locations are not possible, consider changing up your botting pattern by switching to another Script that performs in a separate location.


3.   World Hopping   -   Changing worlds is a great way to limit your exposure to other players, and continue performing the same task without changing locations in game. A player who sees you at the same spot, performing the same task, for several hours at a time will become suspicious and likely report you. Keep this in mind when botting.


4.   Activity   -   The activity you perform in game can also highlight you as a bot. If you only chop trees and your account's stats reflect that, a player directly competing with you for those trees will grow suspicious of your behavior and will likely result in getting reported. If possible, try to switch up the activities you perform on your account so that you are exposed for a less amount of time at each activity.




As for the obvious, the script should also be considered as that impacts your player in game.

1.   When botting it is important to recognize what task your player is performing in game. For example, if you are executing a Script that collects items that are in direct competition of other players in game; you can expect to bring more attention and potential player reports than if you were doing an activity that kept your player to itself. This is important to consider as this may play a bigger factor and stress the importance of the Overview and Other Factors listed above.


2. While it is the author's goal to create a Script that executes the task efficiently in game, sometimes performance can become a bigger focus than safe practice. If that is the case, it is important to bring this to the attention of the author to have the Script perform the task as a player would. This applies to the Developers as much as it applies to the user.



Other Factors
Some other things to consider are what a normal player's account looks like compared to the average botter.


1.   Appearance   -   Your appearance in game, should reflect other players who are performing the same task. The bots that stand out are regularly targeted during bot busting events and should be considered at all times.


2.   Combat level & overall stats   -   Your combat level can also highlight you as a bot or not. A level 3 chopping yews is commonly picked off as a bot and will be targeted during bot-busting events. If you are looking at increasing your accounts longevity, put in the work by leveling your account's combat level up to a respectable level based on the activity your player is performing to help blend into the crowd.


3.   Name   -   Your name in game should be chosen to reflect a normal player. While it is common to name your bot farms in sequential order (i.e. yewchopper1, yewchopper2, etc.) your account unfortunately will stand out among other players and a quick highscores search will result in another player confirming that you are a bot. Try selecting a normal name that does not relate to your other accounts.


4.   Conversation in game   -   For those concerned about your account, popping in and engaging in small chat every once and a while could prove your legitimacy if other players are conversing. TRiBot's built-in autoresponder (default: OFF) can be turned on to help with this, or you can manually talk in game once and a while which may help your player.



In the end, it all boils down to player reports and your account's activity in game. If you can reduce player reports on your character through these safe botting techniques and change up your activities in game regularly, you stand to better protect your account overall in the long run.

You hit the nail right on the head! I've always suggested these tips to the people that say botting is gonna get you banned. But if you do exactly what your guideline says you have a wayyyy less chance of getting banned. But then again a lot of people think they can just setup a bot and it's gonna do all the work for them. Can't just setup a bot, gotta be smart about it too.

      I've noticed some new TRiBotters have had some troubles finding out sources of how to do certain things, such as using advanced scripts and often get lost in the forums.

      We are still getting posts asking where to start, what to do, recommended scripts, etc. 

      As many of you know, I am new to the team, and had troubles myself learning how to bot, let alone script. 

      So, what our team decided to do was make it easier to learn how to bot, how to script, and just become an overall better botter and scripter faster. 

      As some of you might have seen, I've posted 3 new blogs, you can check it out by clicking on the following picture or here.

      These first 3 blogs are the first of many blogs that will be TRiBot official. They are encouraged to be challenged, improved upon and act as A Best Practices Guide for Botters.

      What information would you like to see in the blogs?

      👇 [TEASER] 👇




      We are going to be hosting a  CONTEST  this  OCTOBER.

      Its scary to think how soon you'll find out.👻

      Stay tuned.

    • Today marks a big day for TRiBot! To make it easier for users to use TRiBot, we've created installers available for every platform! These installers are all bundled with the latest version of OpenJDK 1.8 (Java 😎, which is LG compatible.

      Using TRiBot is now easy. Simply download the installer for your platform, install TRiBot, and run it. The TRiBot Loader will correctly identify the bundled JDK so there's no need to change the Java selection.


      EXE installer: TRiBot-windows-x64-4.0.3.exe

      MSI installer: TRiBot-windows-x64-4.0.3.msi

      Portable version: TRiBot-windows-x64-4.0.3.zip

      Mac OS

      Installer: TRiBot-macos-4.0.3.dmg

      Portable version: TRiBot-macos-4.0.3.tgz


      Installer: TRiBot-unix-4.0.3.sh

      RPM installer (CentOS/Fedora): TRiBot-linux-4.0.3.rpm

      DEB installer (Debian): TRiBot-linux-4.0.3.deb

      Portable version: TRiBot-unix-4.0.3.tar.gz

      Platform Independent

      JAR file: tribot-loader-4.0.3.jar

      Note that this jar file does not include the bundled JDK.

      Windows and Mac OS users may notice a warning message stating that the installer/application is un-recognized or un-trusted. Please ignore this message and proceed with running the installer/application. We need to acquire a code signing certificate so that we can sign the installers letting the operating system know that these files can be trusted. It will take a week or more to acquire one, so please hold tight.

      Other notable changes to the TRiBot Loader:

      Support getting the version from OpenJDK distributions

      Add check for bundled JDK

      Copy OpenJDK tools.jar to the bundled JDK if not present

      Set the current java as the first available list entry

      Ignore Java versions which are symbolic links

      Make the bundled JDK the preferred Java version

      Update icon images

      Reduce the number of HTTP calls

    • TRiBot is looking to improve a lot of its customer relationship management, customer on boarding process, customer experience, design elements, community engagement and pretty much everything else you can imagine when it comes to marketing.

      Our goal: To ensure that the marketing done TRULY reflects the experience and does not shine an inaccurate light on what TRiBot is lacking in.

      So I ask, what do you love about TRiBot and what do you hate about TRiBot? What does O S Bot, Rune M8, PowR Bot and Dre amBot do better? (yes I purposely didn't spell it right 😂).

    • Hello TRiBot,

      Today we have a significant release that has been in the works for the last month addressing several key issues, features and bugs in the backlog.

      With these changes, we are also including a new TRiBot Loader which will allow you to select any version that is released. This adds the flexibility of allowing you to revert to a previous version should an issue arise, run development only builds, view an accurate change log between versions etc. we are very proud to offer this feature and think it will add a lot more functionality down the road as we continue to release new versions.

      These changes include 80+ commits by our development team, a list of them is summarized below and also available for your viewing pleasure in the new TRiBot Loader.

      In addition, we have taken additional steps to improve as a development team by adding continuous integration and deployment into our workflow to assist in delivering timely releases such as bug fixes as well as new features on a weekly basis depending on our development cycle.
