Macroing vs. Scripting
One is legal on this shard. The other is not.
Macroing vs. Scripting:
The difference is the difference between EZ-MACROS and an EasyUO bot.
Standing around repeatedly using a skill, or anything else of that nature, such as a simple EZ-MACROS macro could have done in 1999 is totally legal.
Bots and scripts are defined by multi-action, usually moving and completely automated characters.
What's a good rule of thumb?
If it moves, it's dead. That includes making a boat move, and so on.
However, automated resource gathering (resources of any kind - including cotton, wool, etc) is strictly forbidden.
Az has stated that afk macroing fishing from shore is legal, just not from a boat. Even though it still generates free money to the macroer, it does not fall under resource gathering.
