Bots or not, it still takes some time to do any farming run, so this will definitely impact manual farming as well. There's a really neat spot in Act 1 that can net you up to 500k per hour between loads of monster gold and some magic drops, but it involves restarting from a conveniently close-by checkpoint and running over to the little side dungeon/basement that has about a 50% chance to be open. It takes no more than 10-15 seconds if it's not there, and maybe up to 25-30 if it is.
That sounds very... boring. Guess I'm in the minority though considering how popular the game is. It reminds me of doing dailies in WoW and SWTOR. Just this repetitious grind to get another small step forward.
Then again I sat up for hours last night mining in Terraria. Hacking up little mounds of dirt and stone in hopes of finding some new ore or items. I honestly don't know why it's so damn fun but hours just disappear.
