Bot Smart - What it is, and how to do it.

Recommended Posts

Around the forums you may see the phrase "bot smart," this is a guide with various steps for you to follow while botting to reduce the chances of a ban. It should be said, botting is against the rules and by doing so there will always be a risk involved.

These tips are not intended to be used with goldfarming setups or accounts, most of this is speculation based on my own personal testing and data gathering.


Botting Rules (If you intend to bot smart)

You must follow these steps, else you will not bot smart.

  1. Do not bot on an account you can not stand to lose. Botting is inherently risky and a ban is always going to be possible. You must decide whether what you stand to gain from botting is worth the risk. Only you can make this decision.
  2. Do not bot on fresh accounts. A fresh account refers to any newly registered account, or any old account which has not been played regularly in recent times. Fresh accounts are watched much more closely, likely as they pose more of a risk to the economy as they are used for gold farming a lot. Hand train the first 300~ levels and do some quests!
  3. Botting should supplement your game play. Botting is no longer supposed to get you from 1-99 Agility, running a bot this long will just about guarantee a ban. You must switch up what and where you are botting and don't bot the same skill for multiple hours.
  4. You should play legit, its easier to determine a human than a bot. As supplementary info to the above: you should play legit, Jagex knows when accounts are 90%+ botted and will permaban these accounts without a warning ban, if you play legit some then often your bans will only be 48 hour temp bans. Like I said why are you playing RuneScape if you're not here to actually play it?
  5. Understand the ban routine, and what it really means. When your account gets banned, it does not mean you just got caught and banned. It really means they caught you at some point, likely within the past 7 days, and waited some time to collect more data (such as how your character acts) which could help them detect other bots in the future. Do not bot on an account coming off a temporary ban or it will be permanent next time.
  6. Join in on chats going on around you. If you're at your PC while botting (maybe you're doing some work) then you can participate in clan discussions, and respond to people ingame. An account that randomly talks whilst botting is still less likely to get permabanned than if you never interact at all. Also enable Auto-Responder in TRiBot settings and it will respond to level inquiries, etc.
  7. Don't always pick the optimal spots. Are you woodcutting? Perhaps doing it at Draynor village with 20 other people isn't the best place. Assuming 15 of those other people are bots, the 5 legitimate people will get very annoyed and report all of you for slowing their XP down. You should pick a spot where your XP might be slower, or the bank might be a little further, but you have less people around to worry about.
  8. Do not use RSBot/Epicbot ever! Jacmob and Mod MMG specifically stated that their botwatch system is specifically tailored to RSBot and Epicbot which are both based on old RSBot 4 code, most of their interactions or hooks are outdated and they don't have any active API work being done. In short: it is much more easy to get caught botting using RSBot and Epicbot.



Miscellaneous Rules

Here are some further tips:

  1. Never post your RSN on a botting website. Jagex Staff and Player Mods will frequent these boards and have been known to ban people if they have sufficient proof.
  2. If you've just had a 2 day ban, the next one will be permanent. AND your account will be watched closer. You should not continue botting this account.
  3. If you're botting on a VPS you should use a VPN. No one is playing on a VPS legitimately, and it's not hard to figure this out from the IP alone. Providing you're not on a Windows VPS your operating system should not be too much of a giveaway. However, the fact you're playing on a machine without a monitor attached is probably not hard for them to notice either.
  4. Do not click Runescape links on forums. When you click a link it will send data of the page you came from, also known as tracker cookies.


Banned? Clean yourself off

Got banned? Clean yourself off before you continue. What we mean by this is, you need to wipe down anything that Jagex may use to associate your new account with your previous one. However, this is speculation and may not help.

  • Clear your Jagex Cache ( support.runescape.com/hc/en-gb/articles/205842582-How-to-clear-your-RuneScape-Cache-on-a-Windows-PC )
  • You can clear browser cookies and attempt to acquire a new IP address but these likely won't help unless goldfarming.

Nice of you to post such a detailed post.

In my experience it's all to do with RNG, some would say your tribot account.

Been banned on the same IP and the next day i carry on botting my max mains.

Just don't send pictures with your stats indicating you bot, most likely there are some Jagex mods patroling the forums/Discord.

Then again, my tin-foil had does have a hole in it.

      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.
