    Sensible Autobuying?

    Sooo potentially daft question with an obvious answer, but is it possible to AB safely on my main account if I'm sensible about it?

    As I don't really want to be fannying about with proxys and shells and shit. I'm not after making mega millions, only a few mil for some gallery stuff I need. I can't work out in my head how tnt can tell the difference between an AB and a proper restocker if it's set right.

    Possible, but I still wouldn't risk it on an account I value. I suppose you can gamble it if you're only going to use it for a brief period of time, making a few mil.

    Proper restockers are blisteringly fast, so ABers need to be faster. The problem is when ABers are so fast that it's suspicious to TNT.
    If you set your AB times to be *legit*, you may be frustrated that you'll fail to buy many things and start to shave times more and more until you're at risk of being frozen.
    Something to think about.

    In my experience, using an AB at conservative standard settings (i.e. not that fast, no magic shop, less than 4 hours/day etc.) will net you a few million per month (buying 5-6 items per day).

    I have done this on my main for a couple years without issues--use at your own caution.

    I used to ab in pharmacy on my old main. this was like 2 years ago though. I did it like 5 times a week, earned like 100k a day so it was really conservative, but then again it was never frozen.
    I think it should be fine if you have very legit settings and aren't looking to make big profits.

    Don't do the magic shop, it seems to be highly monitored.

    I've only AB-ed on one side and been doing so for months. I haven't been frozen on that account and have been AB-ing in the Magic Shop every time. Just make screenies as well so you look legit

    @shadowcat, I'm curious, how often do you leave the ab on/how much do you make?

    I don't recommend this lol, but I leave it overnight because the program closes on itself halfway through, so it's not actually ab-ing for that long. I start the program whenever I remember to, then leave it running until it decides to close down itself (which I think might be after an hour or so ). When I return to my computer and see that it closed itself down, I start it back up again or use a different side if it gets shop banned. It gets me about 1m in like a few days or a week I think? Depends on the MP

    Wow, haha I'm impressed. Though I guess your hours aren't that long? even still, abing for that long in magic without a freeze is pretty lucky/impressive lol

    Haha it is possible if you're super careful with your timings and such! I'm quite surprised that I haven't gotten frozen either xD. I'm leaning towards lucky
