How Will Botting Effect the Economy Personally, I'll be happy to buy the materials/gold that botters toss on the auction house for super cheap (that's what botters tend to do in most games) and then use those things to craft and sell other items (a crafting bot would be a thrill to see lol). That's what I would (will) do, but what are your thoughts on botters and how they will affect the economy? Here's the latest botting program that was unveiled today: http://diablo.incgamers.com/blog/comments/diablo-iii-maphack-and-bot-released Hopefully that puts things into perspective. I know Warden isn't out yet and this is just the beta, but botting is definitely going to be possible. Note: Hacking is what a lot of ignorant players call botting. Actually, hacking is when you change game files, duplicate items, and mess with the client/server side communication. Botting is when macros and programs play your character for you.
