I've seen the bots here already during the last beta. Teleportation is clearly an option, as I witnessed one group repeatedly appear out of thin air (with a sort of warping animation, and no character there previously), and then do a synchronized slow-walk towards a BAM and start facetanking it (even the healer). They kept dying in the end, and a short while later, would reappear in the exact same location, and do the exact same slow-walk. This was at least 200m from the nearest camp, port location.
Invincibility is clearly an option as well, or at least something approaching it, since another group (which had no healer), was just fine after five straight minutes of being jumped on by the two BAMs I dragged on to them.
I just really hope EME acts aggressively towards bots. If the no-tolerance message gets out early, word will get around, and a lot of less-determined people won't even consider trying it in the first place. One of those situations where an ounce of prevention can help prevent the need for a pound of cure.
