AFK: What is and is not allowed

Dear Community!

There has been a lot of discussion over what is and is not allowed whilst AFK ingame.
Together with Support, the following list of activities has been agreed upon.

What is allowed whilst AFK:
  • Materials production in the Guild Castle at the Forge, Field or Lumberyard;
  • XP/TP Debt Reduction at the Library;
  • Reading of Encyclopedias;
  • Weapon skill leveling through auto attack, such as the eggs in Tergothen Bay;
  • Processing Materials such as Ore, Wood or Herbs;
  • Farming Crystals from the towers in Siege War;
  • Two players are in a group but one is AFK and likely set on Follow whilst the other kills to allow XP/TP gain;
  • Production of Crafted Materials in House or at the appropriate tools provided ingame.

What is not allowed whilst AFK:
  • Use of addons that automate some activities, such as PetAutoCraft;
  • Interaction with NPCs or interfaces within the game;
  • Interaction with mobs through such skills that reflect damage or such that makes it possible for a player to gain XP/TP.

I believe this list should cover most scenarios but if anyone thinks of something that is unclear and needs to be more well-defined, please send me a PM and I will pass the info on for clarification. The result will then be added here.

This shouldn't affect most players at all & should allow everyone to continue having fun in the lands of Taborea.

Your Runes of Magic game and Support Teams.

Since many questions have been raised over the use of the PetAutoCraft addon, let me repost the Elaetil's response from the EN forum where similar questions were asked:

Quoted from "Elaetil"

Hello,

you have raised many doubts over the PetAutoCraft being mentioned as a forbidden AddOn to use whilst you are AFK. Allow me to re-clarify our approach to the usage of that AddOn. We do understand that it is very useful tool for everyday use and we do not intend to block using in entirely. It might not have been explained well enough just by putting it under the category “not allowed whilst AFK”.

Using PetAutoCraft is allowed as long as you participate in the process of this AddOn running. It is up to you what are you doing in the meantime, yet again, as long as you are doing it in-game. Setting up AddOn to buy materials from a NPC and perform all the other necessary actions while you minimalize the game and watch cat videos / chat with family members in other room is not allowed.

Again I apologize that EN Community had to wait whole weekend to receive official translation for german topic. If anyone faced consequences because we lacked translation please contact me via PM. Furthermore I will ask ThePit to incorporate “AFK: What is and is not allowed” into the game rules (with detailed explanation for PetAutoCraft) so no one will miss it.

Kind regards,

Elaetil
