Wait. Someone actually "charged" you for a portal? I'm sorry. Did I mention gratuity? aka "tips?" Let's make something clear- I, for one, NEVER charge anyone for ports, enchants, tailoring items, etc. A tip is something that is offered, not demanded. If a tip is offered, I might take it, depending on the circumstances. i.e. if I have to teleport myself back to SW from the middle of Zangarmarsh where I've been fishing for 10 minutes to port someone to Theramore... I'd hope they would be nice enough to offer up gratuity, but I would never charge for it.
If someone refuses to open a port for you until they're paid- my advice is find another mage, or take a boat. It's not work. It's not that hard and you're right- the stones are cheap. 10g is a pretty good tip, if you ask me. That's generous, but it would be silly to demand it from someone.
Good grief. If you're an Ally on my realm and you need a port, just ask. If I'm free, I'll do it if I can. No need to charge for it. geesh. Charging for portals gives mages a bad name. :)
Yay portals are back in the big cities in limited fashion. Hey, whatever gets you there. Just don't be hatin! At no point did Blizzard get a council of mages together to ban city portals in the first place. It was not, I repeat NOT a conspiracy.
While I, also, do not "charge" for portals - I do NOT begrudge ANY mage from placing a "fee" for services (or ANY other profession/class from charging for anything they do that interrupts their own gameplay for others). It's called "free enterprise" and those of us looking to "buy" (or "take" as is so often the case) can simply CHOOSE to pay their price or look elsewhere.
By belittling or criticizing those that do charge, we say that the time they took out of their OWN gameplay is worthless and should be given away free regardless.
It then becomes an "entitlement" society - which is despicable in game or out - and everyone - EVERYONE - should be free to buy or sell or give away as they so CHOOSE without being told to do otherwise, or even slammed for doing so.
We are free to buy on the AH at any price the seller chooses to post... or not buy.
The same with services.
MANY do the service for "free" - taking time away from their own gameplay to help others out (while hoping for a small fee for their trouble)... and MANY take advantage of that by not paying anything most of the time.
But it is absolutely OKAY for someone to set a price and charge for anything they can do in game. Because you are free to choose whether to pay it or not.
Don't belittle enterprise and trade... NO ONE should be "entitled" to someone else's goods/time/money for nothing if they don't choose to give it away.
04/27/2011 09:14 AMPosted by HollyberryI'd rather see the whole hearthstone system revamped. We should be rewarded with hearthstones to major cities/hubs, once we clear the content, that way, we could hearth to Org, Shatt, Dalaran, and whatever else comes in the future, once we've been through the content, and new players won't be able to world hop.
You can already link from all cities anyway using boats, zeppelins, the Gnome-subway, etc, so why not just make it less of a time-waster so people can actually get to content and play. Rather than wasting my time waiting for a boat in SW to take me to Darnassus, then running to the temple and porting to the Exodar just so I can find some darn eggs, just put a port to the Exodar in SW.
