I'm on PVE server so it's frustrating that I can't just attack him and be done. However, I have developed a procedure:1. Observe the bot. Farm Bots are quite obvious. The ones I've seen have a programmed route and routine. They usually run to the same specific spawn points round and round again, if a spawn is detected when the bot gets into range then it will likely do some sort of buff or use a skill and then engage the mob every single time. If no mob then it will reach the spawn point,stop, turn to the direction of the next spawn point in it's pre-programmed route and then start running again.2. Try talking to the bot, then challenge it and then finally, insult it (just to be ensure that "no-one's home")3. Then and only after you've tried point 2 repeatedly - KILL-STEAL (a few times). This should be the ultimate irritant. If any human is actively controlling the character then they WILL react to this.4. If no reaction to 2 & 3 then Report the bot to DMs5. Then Kill-Steal for an hour or for however long you feel like it.6. Try kiting other mobs towards the bot once it's already in combat. Try not to hit your kites as it's unlikely the bot will aggro them enuff to take them off you. If you're a rogue or hunter you can try stealthing or feigning death once you've reached the bot-in-combat.
