Probably because it's so easy to bot. Making un-bottable (or very hard to bot) skilling activities/minigames with good rewards would be a step in the right direction.

Nothing is unbottable and when it does become bottable the minigame is ruined. Take dung - it's supposed to be unbottable yet bots account for a large percentage of experience earned a day. More than half. (20,000 users, last time I checked) They also monopolize frost dragons, in which case the bots were undoubtedly botted entirely up using a dungeoneering bot.

I do, however, believe you have a point. They need to make more untradeable, useful, high-leveled rewards. (Similar to chaotics) Bots cannot ruin and affect the economy if these things are made available. It'd make botting more of a multi-tiered effort in which case those who wish to bot would have a harder time obtaining multiple bots. If you were to make each requirement a variety of skills, bosses, etc it could work out. You don't see anyone botting task-lists or clue scrolls, yet they have some wonderful rewards and do a lot to further a player's personal progress. High-tiered untradeable armor has yet to be released. Boss drops should be secondary earnings that provide a means to an untradeable end.

Resource skills should always be a primary method of economy. Not armor or equipment. Equipment should be the fruits of hard work and time, not getting lucky at a boss. Skills should contribute to a gain, not become obsolete because of a change.

Most of the old Randoms honestly need to come back. Mindrape everyone who is used to the new ones.
