Just wondering what hacks and bots blizzard allows. I keep seeing people teleporting and killing mobs automatically for days at a time. I have reported them but they are on same toons 24/7 so I guess blizz allows it. Just wondering which of these hacks and bots blizzard supports so I can look into them myself.

No hacks or cheats are allowed.

Our anti-cheat team takes action against botters and hackers 24/7, and every time I’ve asked them “how many botters were actioned yesterday?”, the number is always in the thousands. That’s a global number, by the way.

Our anti-cheat team focuses on popular botting spots, especially areas that are commonly reported by players. For example, Dire Maul has been one such area for cheaters, so a lot of attention from my colleagues has been put on Dire Maul recently.

Please be encouraged to keep using the in-game reporting system for cheat/hack reports. Those complement our systems that automatically look for the ever-changing strategies and software that the botters are using, and reports really help us zero in on new hacks more quickly than we would have without them.

Thank you!
