Pretty sure they are using other hacks in addition to botting programs (they are running above normal speed, and repeatedly ran up steps/slopes that normally you had to get around).
This is not a hack, it's lag. you just perceive them to be running faster because you can see the char catching to to where they are actually located, when this happens, thier char can actually seem to be in the wrong place. I've seen my friends char run up the side of a cave and disappear into the ceiling, when he saw nothing of the sort on his screen, I know because we were physically in the same room when it happened.
There are also the hermes shoes that could explain what you saw.
Definitely not Hermes Shoes (I have a pair so I know how it looks like).
I checked this guy up on lodestone, no DoL or Archer leveled either.
I have been watching this guy for more than 30mins running at the same fast speed around the cave, without toggling any abilities whatsoever, so unless there is some serious problem with my PC, I don't think this is lag.
Let's not turn this into another speed hack discussion. Edited, Nov 16th 2010 1:07am by Thervius
