      Hi im about to start using honor-buddy to farm ore and herbs, i only have one computer and 2 accounts can blizzard track my ip address and see if im getting on both accounts on the same computer and if they ban my bot account will they ban my other account on the same ip address or would my other account be at any risk i read somewhere that they can track it and that i will need a ip blocker if so can someone tell me a good safe one to use and sorry for posting here didnt know where else to do it.Thx for your time )

      If you are using 2 characters on one ip it is very suspicious but could they track it? I don't know, if you use another device you would be fine, try using a virtual machine which would potentially use another IP address.

      When it comes to what Blizzard does and doesn't do a lot of the time it's speculation. There is however some research you can do by going into the Banned section of the honorbuddy forum and checking out some banned reports. It'll give you an idea if players who are in the same situation as you have had both accounts or just one banned.

      This is pure speculation but I would assume that they would only ban the account that broke the ToS, however if they are both under the same BNET account then that may be a different story and they might ban both.

      If you look in the banned section, you will see many posts about multiple accounts banned at the exact same time.

      The IP address itself isn't so much the reason you would get banned initially as home networks with multiple people in the household playing would all be playing (generally) from the same public facing IP address, however if they are having a slow day you are more likely to have the multiple accounts banned if they are all coming from the same IP address IF the GM decides to dig further than just banning the account. I have in the past had an account on the same IP banned with my main account untouched but it comes down to luck of the draw.

      Personally now days I keep my home IP "clean" and un botted and use a vps/vpn for playing around with botting but I play with servers for a living and have the room in a datacentre to spare so cost doesn't really come into it for me, for most not getting greedy and really taking the time to tweak all the settings themselves until they are comfortable/confident the bot feels as human as possible keeps them unique enough to stay away from too much suspicion.

      I had 12 accounts banned, 5 of them I had only bought keys, not played yet. They were all banned in 2 minutes, right in front of me. Worst feeling of my history of botter ^^
      So yes, they IP ban, and no, they don't (always) check if you broke the ToS on each of them.
