The misconception is that those things are detectable when they aren't.

People just 'assume' such things are detectable. They don't read up on anything and jump to conclusions.

I think the thread should be locked with just the original post so that people actually read it.
I agree with @DarkstaR said... There is no bot, completely safe, but for now, i think xenobot is our best choice to move on!
By used properly he means keep switching places you bot in, sometimes hunt manually and do not bot for extremely long times nonstop. non-human behaviour is what gets you caught, not the mana bars.

If cip detected bots in another way, for example if they could see that you're manipulating the client or running a program called "neobot.exe" while playing, they could just bann every botter at once and get rid of the botters. But thats not the case since they have not banned everyone, just some ppl. These are most likely the ones who probably never used skip nearby nodes in neo, botted the same spawn for more than 10h in a row without taking a break, behaving like a bot.
Please take a look at this article.

More facts about injecting to the cilent that backs up what I just wrote and what darkstar has said about this matter. Written by darkstar himself!

Probably even a depositter will do it. In neo skipping nodes makes it also harder. Basically almost everything that has impact on how the character moves will do it.

Botting at 1 place doesn't get you banned, same for botting till lets say 42 - 14 stamina. Many people I know do it at the same place for months, bah.. years! Even on Elfbot they did the same and they never got banned? Its about something else in my opinion, for an ex. me, I only used healing on 1 noob mage around level 80 and I got banned on him. I botted like 10 other knights all 80-100+ to the limits of stamina, non of them was banned, not on neo, not on elfbot
so you saying its not safe but i can use?
he says be wise when using it, ergo dont use x-ray, dont bot until 0 stamina, dont bot 24 hours non-stop, etc
the bot should help the player, not be the player
Exactly! When Lord of War created Tibiabot NG he thought about something that can help the player so the player can clean his room, do some homework, he did NOT think about going afk 24/7 for years :/

I'm finding it quite interesting. Since Neo is dead, this is my goal.
Intresting facts, let's see what happen on next massban !.
