Aug 11th 2009 4:55PM Another tip for catching these folks would be using /who while in the zone that you want to interrogate. A lot of the gold farmers use low level toons which are very often in their 60s. If you change the levels to search for to 1-67, you can get a list of people for your faction that are low level. Lowbies in a high level zone is a definite warning sign. However, I have seen level 80 characters doing this (hacked accounts perhaps).
Note, don't go /who-ing zones and start opening tickets to have all the lowbies banned. Use /who to know that you need to have nameplates turned on with 'v' to catch them in the act (the nameplate will pop up over the node if they're under the ground). You need to see these people actually doing it to have any action taken, I would imagine.
Reporting this does work. I have seen people farming for days suddenly vanish forever after I've submitted one of my tickets.
Happy hunting. You are enhancing your own experience and that of others.
Aug 11th 2009 1:48PM If you're not a hunter and not one for parsing through combat logs, a good way to see their name is to turn the name plates by hitting 'v'. I've caught about half a dozen people doing this and have reported them all.
