Way to bring mining back

I found a way to bring mining back without the bots, now the mine cave still exists, some people have gotten in from quests, so if mine bots have truly been stopped currently then this idea should be okay, I suggest allow mining for people with a pick axe prof of 15 or higher.

Now I have considered people bot leveling prof, but I found a solution to that, and I doubt it's really all that worth doing for botters anyways.

When you reach level 15 prof, you speak to an NPC who will give you a miners permit in 5 days, this would work just like merchants, anyone who bots would surely be caught by TQs amazing system before they got the chance to get into the mines, and the off chance they did get in, they would get jailed and have to start all over for another 5 days.

But...but...the SVG pickaxe I made way back before socketed pickaxes were ever given out got deleted. Waaaah!


It's an interesting idea and I'd love to think that mining could make a comeback. However...

The botters could level up the characters, train proficiency, apply for the permit then offline those characters for 5 days. During those 5 days they'd train up some more to replace any who got caught.

Sorry, it's a clever idea but I don't think it would work the way you intended it to work. They'd just adapt by having replacement miners ready in advance.


I wonder whether having a moving portal going into the mine would be possible, or do anything to hinder bots. By that I mean that the co-ordinates would change just enough every couple of hours or at least every server maint, so that if bots were set to jump on a certain spot they wouldn't go through.

I don't think that would be possible for TQ to do, though, don't even know if it would actually be a problem for the bots. Wishful thinking, didn't get any sleep last night.

Bots, and fixing mining...

Yup, stolen pickaxes.. NOT too happy about that...
That means a guild mate of mine lost a +12 super 2soc. (yes, he DID socket and super it up a few years ago, cause he could)
Anyways, as rolling portals go... it wouldn't stop a bot. Tends not to be random enough, bots would just go till they find the portal

Often times, they jump directly INTO the map, w/o using the portals.

This is going to sound daft.. but I've been away for some time and now everything is changed.. How do you get a mining permit nowadays? I've tried searching the maps for where they used to be and there's no updated information on the website anyway..
I would vote for bots not being allowed on the mine.. They just get on my nerves sometimes :P

Ooh yes, I've once spotted a bot come in and disappear after hopping around for a second in the small room where Shopboy at TC sends you to for changing the color of your gears ;o

What about houses?

I think is more viable to have access to the mines trough a lvl 4-5 house then an open map. Although i will not be surprise if i see some one making all the bots go into his house to be able to be warp to a mine. Or place a charge of 27 cps to be able to enter mine.
