World of Warcraft Cheats
There are many possible ways to cheat in WoW that are currently being used or have been used in the past. There are hacks, such as speedhacks, radar hacks and similar cheats that are being injected into the game. There are exploits that are mostly temporary and can allow for things as duping, unlimited experience and gold farming and similar things. Exploits are usually patched a few weeks after being discovered. The last and probably most used way of cheating in World of Warcraft is botting: That means using computer scripts to automate certain tasks such as farming money and experience, fishing, crafting, enchanting, gathering, buying and selling on the auction house, looting items, raiding and questing. Bots are the most save and effective way of cheating in WoW as of now.
As in most MMORPGs cheating has become a part of the meta. Most serious players in World of Warcraft are using some kind of script, bot or exploit to save time, be more effective in their grinding or simply have an advantage in PvP. Most hackers never get caught, since they are using paid bots or hacks and those are especially hard to detect and ban. There are players in WoW that have been cheating for 5+ years now and have amassed such incredible wealth that they can actually make a living from selling some of it.
Bots are programs that will take control of your character and do certain preprogrammed tasks in order to save you a lot of time. Bot scripts will read your PC memory (ram) and read your location in the world (coordinates), then they will use that piece of information among others to navigate the world, attack mobs, loot, craft, enchant, fish, quest and do other repetitive tasks. Bots are very effective to level up characters in a short time and to farm money you can then spend on gear, pets or mounts ect. Bots will usually make the PC they are used on, unavailable for other tasks: So if you want to farm 24/7, then you will have to have a dedicated World of Warcraft bot grinding computer.
Bots can be programmed to do almost anything. Especially since there is almost no dodging in WoW, bots are quite effective and can do most tasks just as effectively as a human being could. However, bots do run into problems when it comes to PvP and certain raids. A bot is a script and cannot think like a human being, cannot come up with strategies, and will lose to any human player with experience in PvP.
Bots are very effective when it comes to making gold (money). In World of Warcraft. It is more than likely that at this point over 50% of the money in the WoW economy has been produced by bots. Bots can buy and sell from the auction house, they can craft, mine, enchant, craft jewels, tailor, cook, work leather, fish, forge runes and a lot more. They can perform almost any professional skills and help you to max them out and make money off of them. – The most famous bot when it comes to professions is probably the fishing bot that is pretty popular in WoW and can be a constant source of income.
World of Warcraft Hacks
Hacks are pieces of code that is injected into the game client (game program running you your PC) edit the way the game works or add certain functions to the game. Examples of this are wallhacks or radar hacks. A wallhack will give you the ability to walk through walls and radar hacks will make enemies visible through obstacles and give you a huge tactical advantage. There are also hacks that can teleport you, make you fly or jump really high or increase your walking speed (speed hacks). Even though hacking in WoW is certainly still possible, people are doing it less and less, since using bots is a lot more effective. Positional advantages are not that useful in the PvE of World of Warcraft and since the game is very much centered around the PvE and grinding, hacks are very hard to find right now. The only place where hacking is still viable is the PvP.
Another reason why hacking is not all that popular in WoW is that people will notice that you are cheating quite quickly, if you are walking through walls and flying around. When it comes to the danger of detection, bots are a lot saver a well, since they do not inject any code into the game and are not all that obvious.
