There is a huge difference between a fishing bot and a buffbot. To fail to understand the difference is to not understand WHY everyone wanted a buffbot in DAoC.
I know exactly what a buffbot is. Using one is saying you are not willing to put the time and energy into building a character. That's like using godly powers to tackle your opponents in becoming boss at the bank. It's silly and i dont like it.
And a fishbot basically is the same; It helps you get more powerfull and richer fast.
