With so many ways to port oneself around the world, it's kinda put most mages basically out of work.

Not unless you guys stop being so greedy and just offer Portals for Free.

Thats half the reason I made a Mage was to offer Free Portals to everyone.

Business is booming.

Yes. Turn Astral Recall into portals because it's a pointless ability.

That's because it's never just a simple portal. You clowns expect us to travel to you and port you. I'm not going to port to Ironforge from wherever I am at just to give you a damn portal to Dalaran...

Thrall saved the horde, no the entirety of Azeroth using astral recall. Ok I lied...

I have tried to get my poor Alliance alt to Shrine of Seven Stars for three days now. No one would take my gold for a port. I was there asking for a port when a 90 mage just ran right by me and into the AH.

I gave up after that.

I have never charged for a portal, and when someone insisted they give me a tip, I generally told them to simply purchase a rune to replace the one I was using.

Now that runes are a thing of the past, I simply give them for free.

Hell, on Beta, when they took Jade Forest down and didn't provide a portal at first, I - along with other mages - spent a lot of time standing at Pang's Stead simply keeping portals open and continually inviting people to group so they could use them.

Some may call it 'charity', but I call it 'being a helpful person'.

That said, portals are rather iconic of mages and I can't say that it'd really feel right to have them given to another class.

I charge my guild mates 1k per portal.

Why should I waste my time and effort tracking you down to give you a portal that you really don't need?

10g/20g, not worth it.
Frankly I wouldn't even alt tab back into WoW for that much.

People are asking to buy my portals, I say to them you can't afford to buy them from me.
You don't "Buy" or "Purchase" anything, you simply give me some gold to make giving you the portal worthwhile for me, I might be in a LFR queue, or doing something in game or irl.

In raids I sometimes send people to shattrath instead of shrine of the two moons just for lols.

You mean your charity is booming.

That's fine for you, but I don't log in so I can give everyone portals. I do have other things to do. If you want to interrupt my gameplay by begging for portals, I hope you plan to compensate me for it.

I never demand a fee outright, but I'm not going to bother while I'm doing something unless you make it apparent you're going to compensate me.

I am more than happy to compensate.

I am more than happy to come where you are--if you are, for example in SW or Darn--somewhere I can get easily.

About the only time I ask for ports is to the new main city after a new xpac drops.

I had a mage and regularly ported people when I could, and often for free (unfortunately I was stupid and deleted her), so I do know what it is like.

...You've been trying to get there for three days? I'm not sure how to rationalize this. It takes two minutes to use the portal to Paw'Don Village in Stormwind and fly to the shrine yourself, by personal mounts or flight paths. Am I missing something critical here?! MY BRAIN HURTS!

Funny side-note: A mage friend of mine didn't know they had a port available to the shrines until literally a month after release of MoP. He had a few in our raid group think a port there didn't exist too; when they would ask for one after a raid he would reply that they didn't have one. He finally found out and explained that they must have added it in a patch so he wouldn't sound silly...but I know the horrible truth.
