Botting Locations (PC-NA)

Tons of us have been reporting them, we've gone back hours, days, even weeks later and they still persist unimpeded. This is just one of many locations I am personally aware of botting running rampant in ESO.

These characters run single file, turning on a dime in a predesignated path spamming the same skills over and over again. They've been running at least two weeks collecting leather. The following images were taken right now (1:05 pm PDT) on PC-NA.

Do you know of other locations? Post a screenshot of it to raise ZOS awareness of this ongoing problem, and remember no naming and shaming.

"When you're in an Elder Scrolls game, you're in a world. We don't want players to hit monetization fees when they're in the world. It's like, I go into a dungeon, if I don't have access to the dungeon it pops up a window: you don't have access to this, go buy 50 credits. We didn't want that experience. That's not an Elder Scrolls experience." - Matt Firor

    Bangkorai botting, same scenario. Players running single file turning on a dime one after the other killing bears & mudcrabs while ignoring all gathering nodes and attempts to communicate.

    This camp has been botted since One Tamriel release that I know of. (PC-NA)
    Bangkorai - Fallen Grotto

    I gave up reporting bots. I provided video, locations, filed tickets... a month later the boys were still there. Sometimes ZOS takes action right away and other times things slip through the cracks.

    I even collected all of the mobs in these areas and pulled them down the hill a ways and held them there for a few minutes to test these guys. They continue on with running their loops on the same exact jagged paths and are oblivious to me holding 10-15 mobs on me within plain sight.

    All of the previous botting locations posted here 10 days ago are still running their loops.

    What astounds me the most about this one was the Dwemer Sphere pet following one of these bots, so its not like this is a newly created account doing this...

    What is ZOS doing to combat the botting problem? Is there any point to try playing legitimately or competitively when this is literally going on in over half of the games maps?

    The bots mostly bother me because I want to farm these locations to get some dreugh wax to finish up some gear, but they're already there and it annoys me.

    Yeah.. but lets all act surprised and "investigate" when a guild trader suddenly has 2000 dreugh wax from one person along with 1000's of other materials.
