Quick and Dirty Guide: How to start your Diablo 3 bot
I am going to walk you through what works to start you out. I will bring you up to speed first on a program called DemonBuddy that has taken all of the heavy lifting off your shoulders. As an aside, I plan to post a comparison to the different botting programs available to help you make an educated decision. Let’s start simple and cheap though. Since all the information is scattered, I have compiled the quickest starter guide here. Would it help to have a video for this?
What is needed for DemonBuddy?
Know your Hardware:
Are you 32-bit or 64-bit processor? You need to know this to install the correct software package. Go to StartMenu-> Right click Computer-> System and look for System type.
- Diablo 3 installed and updated to connect to Blizzard servers.
- Microsoft .NET Framework 4 – Download Here – This is a software framework that allows for many different programming languages to talk to each other and is necessary for many programs in Windows.
- Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package – Download Here – This is a programming language pack to be used by .NET framework.
- DemonBuddy Updated Release – Available Here
Cost to Start with DemonBuddy: There is now a free trial. Previously was $1.30 or 1 euro
- I’m assuming you already have a Diablo 3 account. Sunken cost. – $0
- You will need to purchase a license to a botting software.
- I would recommend trying out the 1-day license offers and seeing how you like it. – Free trial, $1.30, or 1 euro.
Directions to get Demonbuddy to attach to your D3 account:
- Install Microsoft .NET framework 4 and then Microsoft Visuall C++ 2010 Redistributable Package.
- Download the latest version of Demonbuddy and extract the zip to a folder on your desktop. You can name it whatever you like, I’ll use a folder called BotDiablo.
- Purchase a 1EU (~$1.30) license key to DemonBuddy. This will be good for one day but you can test out botting to make sure you like it.
- Open Diablo and log in.
- Open Demon Buddy and log in with the license key that you bought above.
- DemonBuddy will ask to attach to your opened Diablo 3 account. Accept this. Congrats! You are almost on your way to botting.
