If the bots are tanky enough and if you can DPS enough, and if the boss you get isn’t a Chaos Spawn (Because bots are basically walking health potions to a CS), you can beat Legend with Bots. However, it can take a long time and you have to play like a goddam rockstar during basically every second in order to make it happen.
Yes, it is possible, but the player has to be insanely skilled and carry the team every step of the way, especially considering that if you die the game ends, regardless of if the bots survive. And the Bots are constructed out of industrial strength autism so having them do things like pick up items or you if you are incapacitated is an exercise in frustration.
BUT WHY, RAGS, ARE YOU PLAYING WITH BOTS? Well I’m glad you asked. I don’t have reliable internet at the moment so I’m challenging myself because I hate myself.
It would be really neat if there was a special built in reward for completing Legend with Bots…as it’s such a difficult task to accomplish even with no books that I feel you should be given at least a General’s Vault, perhaps. Or maybe double the rewards of books that the player carries to the end?

UPDATE: Lack of a boss spawning at all immensely deceases the probability of horrible death. Bots on Legend have also given me the ability to surpass the 1,000 kills mark.
