Does using bots in WoW break the Terms of Service if you are indeed present of the computer and chatting away like nothing is happening? I say this because I notice who are just doing the EXACT same process in BGs ( I.E Running into walls all the time ) Yet are raging on /i that we are loosing etc. So basically am asking , does it comes down to ethics to bot or is it highly illegal & break the ToS?

Thank you in advance.

  • Been a while I've played WoW but it was happening to me to run into walls while typing... just don't assume they are bots :) Feb 20, 2014 at 15:19
  • Yes. Target them, right click and Report Cheating. Feb 20, 2014 at 16:31
  • There is an auto run feature that allows the character to continue running without any further user input, if someone is at their keyboard they aren't likely to be a bot, it would be a waste of time to report them as such. if you see a player doing the same thing over and over without interacting with environment at all they are likely to be a bot, this is particularly common in battlegrounds at certain times of day.
