How to AVOID bans & Successfully Bot your Main account [GUIDE]

Guide to Significantly Reducing Bans & Successfully botting your Main

By: Mark

 

Introduction:

I've had major success botting a main with tribot, and felt obligated to help out the rest of the tribot community interested in creating and botting their main account successfully, as well as significantly reducing the chances of bans. I have applied 100% of the tips I will be providing in this guide to my own personal accounts.

 

My Story:

Since April 2013 I have been botting with tribot, and achieved massive success on my previous accounts. Obviously at this time ban rates were almost non existent, and bot watch was a joke. I maxed out melee with horrible botting habits, something that is impossible to do now. 

In late 2014 I was permanently banned for macroing major. I quit the game for a while and didn't know of the recent hiring of Mod Weath and upgraded bot watch system. I took a huge hit, quit for about a year. Fast forward to December 2015, I create a new account, and start botting. My ultimate goal was to max out melee, get 94 magic, and pretty much all my previous stats.

I purchase VIP-E, use looking glass, and try out USA's combat script. With this I get to 70/70/70, and quickly move on to Nightmare zone using Erick's ExNMZ script. From 70/70/70 got to 70/99/70 in a matter of 12 days. I got too cocky, and started botting insane hours (9 hours straight of script running time, etc) and eventually get a 2 day ban. 3 days after I get unbanned, I proceed to botting again, only this time, with much better botting habits. I eventually reach 99/99/99 and achieve max melee. Right after, I proceed to get 94 magic with Starfox's SigmaMagic, and get it pretty quickly, along with 60 magic and 60 agility. Since then I have stopped botting, and I sleep well at night knowing I got through the extremely efficient bot watch system. 


The GUIDE:

Before I get started with the guide, I would like to say that good botting habits will forever be the most important aspect in avoiding bans. 

 

General Requirements:

1. VIP-Extended

If you want to successfully bot your main, you cannot be cheap. VIP-Extended is $8 a month, and it gives you access to Looking Glass & human mouse data. Both I believe are helpful in reducing ban rates. Looking glass makes client detection by Jagex pretty much impossible, while human mouse data is a very nice bonus. 

2. Looking Glass

I used it, and you should too. People may argue that jagex do not detect clients, but look at it from a logical stand point. If jagex wanted to eradicate botting, WHY WOULDN'T THEY look for clients? Looking glass allows your account to be logged in on a legal client (like osbuddy) while the script runs on the tribot client. At the same time, being consistent with client usage will minimize the chances of you possibly getting flagged, which could happen when you are constantly changing clients whenever you're botting and playing legit. 

I'd like to note that the tribot client was once detectable (back in November I believe, Trilez made a post admitting to this), but it has since been patched. It is possible that jagex could be able to detect clients again, therefore it would be in your best interest to just stick with the looking glass and remain safe.

3. A little bit of discipline and common sense

This one is pretty much self explanatory. You'll notice that as you progress botting your runescape account, your confidence in the script and/or the client may increase. This could lead to you increasing your botting hours and reducing your breaks, which is a horrible idea. DO NOT push your luck. The tips I'll give you in this guide will be enough for you to make it far with botting your account, just be patient. 

 

The Essential Botting habits:

Listed in no specific order.

1. Do not bot during Jagex working hours, or at least be very cautious when you do.

Bot watch exists, and is there to flag accounts. When you bot during jagex hours, not only are you running the risk of being detected by the bot watch, but you also run the risk of being manually banned by mod weath. If you want to avoid bans, it would be in your best interest to avoid the possibility of a manual ban, therefore do not bot during jagex working hours.

2. Do not bot more than 8-10 hours a day total.

8-10 hours may even be pushing it. Most normal human beings do not spend more than 8-10 hours everyday playing runescape. The entire aspect of botting smart revolves around being as least suspicious as possible, therefore do not go overboard. \

3. Do not bot more than 2-3 hours straight. 

Now, we get into specifics. Besides not botting more than 8-10 hours a day in total, do not bot more than 2-3 hours straight. Keep your botting sessions as human-like as possible, depending on the activity. Only a handful of people in this world can go multiple hours straight training their skills at max efficiency. 

Depending on your skill botted, your maximum session may vary. Most people can fletch for 2-3 hours straight, but no one can runecraft for 2-3 hours straight at max efficiency. Again, use your brain, and don't go overboard with your sessions. 

Personally, I did nightmare zone for 2.5-3 hours at a time. I also stun-alched for 2 hours sessions, but did agility for 30-1 hour sessions and mining for 30-1 hour sessions MAX.

4. Take breaks.
 

In between your sessions, try to take manual breaks. Say you do 2-3 hours of Nightmare zone training, log off right after for about 30 mins to an hour, possibly longer. Try to be fairly random with this, just like a normal person would. Someone who does 2-3 hours of NMZ may eat dinner, which sometimes takes 30-45 mins. Sometimes he brushes his teeth or does something else after, taking another 15 minutes. Again, try to mimic normal human behavior and breaking habits.

As for the break handler, I personally did not use this. I feel that fully randomizing your breaks only makes you look more bot-like, and always stuck to manual breaks. If I was in school, I would use teamviewer to manually stop my script, or if I was at home, I would just stop it myself. Be creative, and be smart.

5. Switch things up and play legit during breaks.

I've said this many times before, you need to be as human-like as possible. People do not do the same activity for hours on end, day after day, week after week. If you have a long term goal like I did, switch things up. After 2-3 hours of nightmare zone, take a 30-1 hour break, then do a little bit of fletching, questing, whatever. Make yourself seem like you are a normal player, and not some bot who does the same thing over and over. I believe this was one of the MOST EFFECTIVE botting habits that kept me from getting banned. 

6. Invest in premium scripts and stay away from free ones.

This is not to take away from the free scripts we have on tribot. Don't get me wrong, we have some pretty good free scripts, but they're simply not as good as the premium ones. If you really care about your account, INVEST in premium scripts. Premium scripts are tested extensively, have better anti-ban, and are less likely to have bugs. The entire goal is longevity of your account, therefore it would make sense to use the best script for a certain activity. 

7. Choose ABC2 over ABCL1 scripts, although ABCL1 scripts do fine as well.

Mentioned this many times before, you want to be as safe as possible, therefore use the most human-like anti-ban. Trilez and the rest of the devs have done a good job with ABC2, and I believe that it is very useful in avoiding bans. Less randomization, more human-like, and overall just more tailored to your own habits. Although majority of my success came from a script which did not use ABCL2, I believe that this anti-ban system would of made the script a bit more safe. 

8. Take some days off.

Normal people do not play runescape every.single.day. Take days off botting. Go days where all you do is play legit doing quests, chatting with friends in the GE, etc etc. Be as human like as possible. I usually did this once a week or so, to avoid suspicion. Although this is not a requirement, its always better to be on the safe side. 

9. Do not bot heavily goldfarmed methods.

Things like Woodcutting, yews, fishing sharks, spinning bowstring, crafting natures etc. are all very risky. Bot watch obviously has a keen eye for these, as they affect the game the most. Mod weath also manually bans in these places the most, making it that much more risky. If you're gonna bot a skill like woodcutting, do so with a method that does not make money, like willows. If you're gonna fish, do salmon and trout. 

Conclusion:

This is pretty much all I have for now. Everything was done on the top of my head, and these are all the habits I implemented. If I forgot something, I will edit this thread to add what I've left out. 

To be successful, you have to be smart. Try to keep things as human-like as possible, and never go overboard and push the limit. 

If you guys have any questions, feel free to post below or send me a private message. Good luck!

Cheers for the guide, Im in a similar situation maxed out 2x lvl 126's with another competing site using their VIP. I heard TRibot is slightly better though so I bought VIP extended today. Already have a zerker with 95 strength so I'm not far off. Hopefully I can slip through jagex's hands into the buttercup land of 4th dimensional beings

More in depth on Sigma part? looking to do 55-94 thanks!@

I pretty much did stun-alch from 80-94, and from 55-80 just did alching. Magic in general isn't too heavily watched. If you're gonna stun-alch, do it somewhere no one else would ever come across. I did it in a very secluded spot which is accessible to anyone, pm me if you wanna know it :P

Great guide Mark, will definitely help people keep their accounts alive a lot longer! I'm also a big believer in avoiding reports, but maybe that's just me!

Ive never heard of OS buddy. How do i go about using it with the tribot client?

You don't necessarily need to use osbuddy, any client will work as long as you're able to hook it to looking glass.

+1 at the premium script idea. It's priced for it's superiority.

 

Nicely written, got a nice aspect on break handling/not using it... i'll mix and match with real hand breaks. ;)
First time trying,  but so far I've done the basics, mostly as you've stated.  Mimic human behavior.  I do about 5 skills a day, which I believe has me kept alive.

Premium scripts are also the only ones I'd trust... in case I decide to do something naughty like smoke weed and fall asleep in bed...

Sleeping without breaks (always with LG) would always remain in waking up to a ban.  This is why I will keep using break handler + my own input hehe.  Just to be extra safe ;)

I'd always end up elsewhere or something fun.  With premium, I don't ever get that issue.  

... Fun.

 

yes. Premium.
