Why is nobody discussing a revenant bot?

As the title states... 

Mainly because it would have to support anti-pk. Since there is so many people, combat level based anti-pk (player combat level +/- wilderness level = enemy combat level) will not work, even if it did, it would spend more time hopping than actually getting profit. And with more people there, the gp/hr varies since you won't always get the kill. If you want a equipment based anti-pk (if they are wearing this equipment = log out/world hop), the gear people use mainly for pking is black d'hide, which is also the main gear that people use at rev caves. Sadly, if you want one without anti-pk, you would render yourself very vulnerable. Possibly even lose money from it. If there are any other type of anti-pk let me know.

You have a very valid point. However, how do green dragon bots combat the same issue? 

It's a shame :( could be insane loot with low requirements - perhaps with low level accounts less susceptible to pkers? Say around level 20-40 killing the lower level revs

I've messed around with it, and with how crowded it is, you need to be using 90+ range accounts minimum or you don't get any kills. Perhaps you could camp the spawn of the ones with 15-20hp or so and hope you hit it first, but even then.

Surprisingly, you don't get pked that much. (for me it was about once per hour that I'd die). The real problem is world-hopping. You have to world-hop at the first sign of a pker, and you spent easily 1/4 of the time world-hopping. That said, it's still really profitable.

Most of my deaths were from getting tele-blocked from non-skulled players, or if I happened to be in combat and the script was unable to log off fast enough.

Green drag bots combat the issue by not being in multi-combat. It's less popular to pk green dragon bots, and you generally have less GP in the inventory. It's lower wilderness too, and because it's single target, they have to choose between TB/Ancients. If they freeze you, you insta tele out. If they TB you, you pray mage and start running.

I think it is because it would be very hard to make a rev bot that actually looks like a human playing. Think about how much more vulnerable you are at revs than killing green drags or something. Its also multi combat.

Well, the people have answered your question. What both of them said are true. I wouldn't do revs with a bot sadly. I haven't personally done it but there are too many factors to consider and obviously you get unlucky at times. Even with death walk, if they know you are coming back, you will be fucked until you world hop. World hop too much then you have cool down. What i saw was if you are a pretty maxed main, go in black d hide and elder maul, you hit pretty high on first hit and can cause you to get kill a lot of the time. This method was tested by nothinglasts on youtube.

At one point in time i guess a Rev bot would be a completely viable option, but as of right now, the cave is waay too packed to make it in any shape or form profitable with a script. I mean, i don't even know the first thing about coding, but that just came as common sense. Also on the Green dragons bots, they are essentially pretty dead content by now, and it's easy to kill them without losing that much on death/not losing anything at all.
