Bots are programs that are running on your computer and taking over your character. Bots can be used to perform almost any kind of task to aid you in your leveling, farming, crafting and even PvP. Bots are able to follow pre-recorded routes and farm mobs along the way, loot them and even sell items. Bots can also be set to send your companions on missions and perform other kinds of class specific tasks. In Star Wars: The Old Republic farming bots are the most popular kind of automated script used. Farming bots will help you level up fast by farming experience automatically, get rich by collecting lots of credits and they will also help you craft awesome gear by collecting materials. Bots can be used along with any class, but ranged classes are most effective to farm quickly and they will also get stuck a lot less often.
Since most bot software does not change the way the game works, but only reads its memory and inputs commands based on that, they are undetectable. The only way you can get banned when using bot scripts, is if other players report you manually. So make sure that you configure your scripts correctly and in suck a way that then not only seem human, but also don’t get stuck. Most professional SWTOR gamers are running some kind of bot on their main or alternative accounts, since it eliminates a lot of the grind that is required to be a good player in SWTOR.
Hacks are software that injects code into your game that is not meant to be there in order to add functionality to the game that you would not usually be able to access. They are very similar to mods, except for the fact that they do give you an advantage over other players. Hacks in Star Wars: The Old Republic Online can allow you to walk through walls and other obstacles, fly around the map, teleport short distances, jump insanely high, see enemies through walls, run faster and a lot more. Hacks are in their nature detectable, since they change the software running on your PC, so make sure that the software you are using is up to date before using it. Hacks are most effective in the SWTOR PvP mode, since it can give you that competitive edge over your opponents. Hacks will give you the ability to gain an advantageous position quickly, especially if used on ranged classes. But be careful not to use then carelessly: If other players notice that you are cheating, they will report you quite quickly and that will endanger your account.
In every game there are certain values or items that would totally kill the game if they were at all hackable. For that very reason a lot of game developer, especially MMO developers, decided to process these values on their own game servers and not on the players PC. – And that is why we are not able to change important values, such as Health, Coins (CC), Credits or Items in SWTOR. Imagine if there was a way to get the best gear in the game through a cheat: Within a few days everyone would do it and the game would be a lot less fun after that. So do not believe anyone that tells you that they have some kind of “ hack ” or “generator” that lets you add credits, health or items to your account. It does not work. – You have not been warned. These people only want you to fill in surveys and get your login data in order to steal your stuff. – So do not fall for their tricks.
Important: Please don’t use Bots in PvP Warzones
Recently the sue of Bots in the SWTOR PvP matches has led to a lot of anger and frustration in the SWTOR community. We urge our members not to use bots in any PvP situations, since it is not only very risky, but also ineffective and hurts this game we love and it community. – There is a huge PvE world that allows you to get the best gear in the game, an unlimited amount of credits and as much experience as you wish to farm. You do not need to bot in PvP. In PvP Warzones or Arenas you have real people that are playing against your bot and most of these real people can tell if a player is acting “suspicious”. – In many cases this can result in people reporting you to the game moderators and a ban for you. The player versus player community within Star Wars: The Old Republic is weak to begin with. – So we should do our best to strengthen it. Thanks and have fun botting any other parts of the game you want.
