Players have caught sight of many Dwarf Hunters with Chinese-named pets in Westfall, Duskwood, and many other locations. They don’t have any Rune equipped. They often stay in the same spot for a long time, farming spawned creatures for gold. This disrupts regular players’ gameplay, making it impossible to defeat any mobs as the bots constantly clear the area.
