[Tutorial] Fluffee's Ultimate Guide to Botting: Part Four - All About Mules

Fluffee's Ultimate Guide to Botting: Part Four - All About Mules

Welcome once again to Fluffee's Ultimate Guide to botting series. If you haven't already read part one or part two, please do so here ([Tutorial] Fluffee's Ultimate Guide to Botting: Part One - Account Creation and Management), here ([Tutorial] Fluffee's Ultimate Guide to Botting: Part Two - All About Proxies) or  here ([Tutorial] Fluffee's Ultimate Guide to Botting: Part Three - All About Servers ).

--What are mules?--

Well in the real world a mule is an animal, another name for a donkey actually. However, in the RuneScape world, a mule is a slang term for an account used to store excess gold/items. They were commonly used in the dicing days, when the hosts would RWT their gold, and they wanted to make sure they didn't lose everything should something bad happen. And as RWT bans began to rise, mules became a common tool for botters as well.

--Why should I use a mule?--

Mules allow you to have a safe place to keep all your botted gold, so you don't lose it when JaGeX cracks down on your bots. That way, when you wake up one day and get that dreaded account disabled message you don't have to be too worried, as all that GP your bots worked hard for is safe and secure on your favorite mule account. With the help of a mule you've managed to thwart JaGeX again, and that's always a bonus.

--Can mules get banned?--

The quick and short answer is yes. If you're not careful, and you're lazily just trading all of your GP from your bots to your mule JaGeX can easily track the trade history and ban your mule as well just for having contact with bots. Want proof of this? Ask dicer Fishy what happened to all his accounts when JaGeX decided they were sick of his rampant RWT. He lost all of his accounts, mules included.

Alright, so maybe Fishy is a bit of an extreme case but it does show that yes mules can be banned, and being lazy with trading only makes that easier. Luckily for you, I have some discrete methods to help reduce the chances of JaGeX cracking down on your mules which will help you keep that precious GP safe.

--Sidebar--

Alrighty, before we continue I want to be perfectly clear here and I really want to avoid someone flaming the thread because "they've never had a mule banned". I'm not saying that you will be banned by directly trading gold from your bots to your mule. Heck, some people even sell gold from their mules without issue. What I am saying is that a ban is possible by directly trading your gold from your bots to your mule. These methods that I am going to show you are methods that will help reduce the ban rates, and just because you haven't revived a ban with your lazy methods does not mean you will not receive a ban. With that out of the way, let's get into this.

--Should I level stats on my mule?--

If you have to ask, the answer is probably yes. Let's make the assumption that JaGeX knows what everyone's bank is worth, and if that's the case (which considering they own the game, isn't a super far fetched assumption) wouldn't it be rather odd if a fresh account with absolutely no stats has tonnes of GP. That alone would make JaGeX suspicious as how would you possibly have accumulated that amount of money. Therefore, I would recommend you take some time and train up your account a little bit. You don't need any outrageous stats, just enough to make you blend in to the general population of RuneScape.

--Should I quest on my mule?--

Once again, if you have to ask the answer is probably yes. Again, we're looking to blend in here and most people who play RuneScape do at least a couple of quests it's just the standard practice. Quests such as Cook's Assistant, Doric's Quest and Goblin Diplomacy can be done in like 15 minutes total assuming you start with the items. As well, getting the 7 quest points (which you will from those quests) allows you to trade anything from an F2P account; which saves you membership fees.

--How do I trade GP safely to and from my mules?--

I think this is probably the most interesting part of the tutorial, and for many the part you're probably going to skip to. I'll be going over 4 methods in this tutorial, ranging from simple, higher risk methods to challenging low risk methods. It's up to you which method you chose, but it's nice to have options.

Method 1: Straight Trading [Risk: High, Difficulty: Easy]

This method is what you're probably using today, it's the quickest method to move gold from one account to another. Just login to both your bot and your mule, then right click and trade your GP over. It's fast, it's efficient, and it definitely gets the job done. However, we can only assume it provides JaGeX with an easy way to track down your mule as there will be a long log of trading history between the accounts.

As a result of this, I wouldn't recommend this method, unless you are layering your mules. What this means is that you have all your bots trading a few mules, and then those mules trading one main mule. Even with that setup I still wouldn't advise straight trading your main mule as to me, that's just too obvious. However, it is the easiest method and you might prefer easy over safe.

A bonus tip, if you chose to straight trade throw some junk in the trades. Hopefully this will help keep JaGeX off your back.

Method 2: Dueling (Staking) GP [Risk: Medium, Difficulty: Medium]

This method is rather straight forward, much like straight trading this method just involves dueling your mule to transfer the gold. It is a bit of a pain to do, as you have to walk both your accounts to the Duel Arena, but it should keep everything on the down low. If you don't want to do a lot of work, but want a bit of extra security then I advise this. Just request to duel your mule, stake all the gold/items you would like to transfer over, then have your mule kill the bot; simple as that. If you really want to save time you can have your bot just forfeit the duel however I wouldn't promote it. If you're already committed to going through the process of dueling you may as well see it through and finish the duel.

Method 3: Falador Party Room [Risk: Medium/High, Difficulty: Medium]

This method is actually kinda fun. Essentially, run your bots to the falador party room and have them deposit all of their items in the drop chest. Then, start the party, and on your mule run around and pop all of the balloons you can find. When the balloons pop, some will drop some of the items from the chest, quickly pick them up and keep popping! By the time the balloons are done falling, you should have all of the items!

Now, due to the nature of the Falador Party Room there are some things you need to note.
1. Other players can come in and start popping balloons, thus stealing all your hard earned items. So make sure you do this on a low population world.
2. If you don't pick up the items after popping, you can lose the items.
3. If you add more then 50k on F2P, NPC's in Falador announce that something is going on in the Party Room, so you really do need to be fast.
4. It costs 10k to pull the lever and start the party.

Overall, this is a fun method and surely cannot be traced. However, it's quite risky and you could have some guy come in and pop a balloon to find all your GP sitting there on the ground.

Method 4: Grand Exchange Money Laundering [Risk: Medium, Difficulty: High]

This method is extremely unknown. I actually attempted to google this, and found one post about it; so you're welcome TRiBot :)
This method was popular back when Free Trade was removed, and RWT companies needed to move gold across multiple accounts. Essentially, what you'll be doing with this method is finding an extremely low volume item on the Grand Exchange, and then buying it on your bots for a ridiculous price, while selling it on your mule thus transferring the money from one account to another via the Grand Exchange.

Essentially, if there's no offers for an item (I'll use a Law Rune as an example) the lowest offer regardless of the price, is the first offer to go.

So let's say on the Grand Exchange nobody in OSRS is selling Law Runes, and I mean no one. So on your mule, after you confirm nobody's selling Law Runes, you go ahead and sell 1 Law Rune for 10M gold. As there is no other Law Runes being sold, the only sell offer in the Grand Exchange is your offer, and therefore it is at the top of the queue. Then, on your bot with the gold, buy the Law Rune for 10M gold. Again, as there's only one sell offer (the one put in by your mule) you instantly buy that one Law Rune for 10M gold, your bot now has one really expensive Law Rune and your mule has 10M gold, and the accounts never even saw each other in game; making this the best method for laundering money in RuneScape to date.

Now, due to the nature of the Grand Exchange there's something you need to note:
1. This can be flawless, if nobody else is buying/selling your item.
2. Sharing items here on the thread, or with your friends is a terrible idea, as that ruins the method.
3. You can lose your money, or atleast some of it, if someone starts selling your item while you're trading.

And that about brings this segment of the guide to the end, to overview, we've covered what a mule is, should you use a mule, should you level/quest a mule and then how to discreetly transfer money to your mule. I hope you've enjoyed, and learned something from this lengthy guide, I apologize for the delay, but these guides really do take work.

I do have one small question for you guys. As I've written four of these guides (with a total of somewhere around 8000 words), I'm running out of ideas. But I know you guys are not our of ideas. If there's anything you need/want to know more about, feel free to post it here or shoot me a message. And if I do chose your idea, it'll be fully credited when the guide is released!

Thanks for reading everyone, and I hope you enjoyed another segment of Fluffee's Ultimate Guide to Botting :)

Great guide once again, am really loving these tutorials!

 

I'd love to see a sort of "beginners" guide into gold-farming. One that goes over how long you'll have to potentially commit to each account, the possible ban rates for popular methods, the math behind buying proxies, and making the moneys for bonds. As someone who would like to get started, I'm scared to make an initial investment without at least some knowledge behind it.

I've traded 500b+ between my accounts/main/mules (Ge merching - I add 25-100M to my accs each day, and take it off at the end of the day + all my other accounts/methods to achieve this number). And my mule has never gotten banned/touched.

That said, I did notice a loose correlation between taking items off my accounts and bans. I found, that for accounts where I would collect resources off them every few days, bans most often came the day AFTER a collection period. Recently, I started using multiple mules, and am testing to see if this makes any impact. Essentially, I have ~80 accounts running, and 10 different mules. Each account will trade different mules each day, and I'll see if anything changes.

Saw your link on my post, and this is quite useful, i myself went kinda ham trading huge amounts every week for about 3-4months and suddenly i'm getting these sudden bans for Macroing Major not even RWT, i'm be sure to test some of these out, and post an update as soon as one of them starts working for me. 

Btw, have you thought of pure wilderness killing?

amazing guide fluffee, just read about mules and i agree with you, because i had an account with 90 thieving and like normal stats, i botted thieving like 2-1 year ago, i used it again few months ago, and then when  i had the most gold on the account jagex banned me, REASON: Botting and not real world trading.

      Hello, I'm looking to start a joint venture with someone (preferably experienced) to start botting OSRS on a large scale. I used to bot instagram with hundreds of accounts using CPA until they cracked down hard on bots in recent times. Ive botted OSRS in the past but I want to take it to the next level.
      We can pool our resources together and start making money together with your methods. Or you could teach me your methods and I will give you a percentage of the profits that I make while botting. I know the basics, I have plenty of free time to bot (all day and night) and I have plenty of cash to scale it up quickly. So if you are interested in working with me feel free to contact me on here or on discord via my username Maglincer#1280.
      Thanks for reading!

      Questions: 
      1.  Is Jagex able to track and chain ban all muling accounts regardless if items were traded or drop traded, associated or not?
      2.  Is RWT the bots' GP profit daily better than weekly/monthly? 
      3.  What about stockpiling items/GP versus selling profit daily?
      4.  What steps does one need to take to drop-trade/person-to-person trade between said number of accounts to remain nearly anonymous?
       
      Please answer these (4) four questions in order or to the best of your ability.
       
      Below are a few examples I came up with but might not be close to effective at all so feel free to ignore me haha!
      Example 1:  10 bots with botted items ready to stockpile... trade to > 1 legit, clean account and stockpile on latter account.  (what if Jagex knows who picks up/drops what in cache?  see Example 2...)
      Example 2:  10 bots with botted items ready to stockpile... drop trade to > 1 throwaway... trade 10%+/- of each botted item to 10+/- different throwaways that stockpile botted items.  (this just spreads out the items into multiple stockpile accounts, thus reducing chain ban?  See Example 3 for similar method...)
      Example 3:  10 bots with botted items ready to stockpile... drop trade to > 1 throwaway then DROP-TRADE 10%+/- of each botted item to > 10+/- different throwaways that stockpile botted items.  (this method should be best given that Examples 2 and 1 don't work but still just a question as are all 'Example _" paragraphs...)
       
      The above examples won't work (most likely) but I figured I'd start a thread that has some basic questions in it and see where people consider their method...
      From one muling noob to the interwebs I say:  Please help...

      So I recently got into Botting with tribot, and before I started out with any of my own bots I did a ton of research and reading about safe bottling practises and tips to prevent bans. 
      I decided to bite the bullet and try out a few accounts. I got 5 private ipv4 socks5 proxies, 5 unique email addresses, and created the 5 accounts through a browser with proxy support so I was creating each account on a separate IP.
      Then I got tribot setup and set each proxy to one of the 5 tabs I opened in tribot. I logged in to each account and got them through tutorial island.
      Then I decided to try out the same script on all of them (all on different worlds and still on different IP's)  and within a little over an hour, about.5 minutes apart, they were all locked. Now they weren't banned from what I can tell, I got the message "your account has been locked as we suspect it has been stolen".
      I'm wondering what caused this to happen, and on all 5 of my accounts?
       
      Thanks in advance!

    • [READ TO THE END FOR A TEASER]

      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?

      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.

      Windows

      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


      Unix/Linux

      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 😂).

      Love,

    • 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.
