One time, I was in Orgrimmar, lvling my fishing in the pond. A low lvl orc asks me for money, I tell him I have none, which was true because I just spent all my money on training. Then he asks me if I have any gear he can have. I say no, all my gear is soulbound and I sell gear on the AH, and if he wants that gear he can buy it like everyone else. He then asks me if I have anything at all he can have...I gave him 3 raw mudslappers I had just caught in the pond.Point is, I don't help anyone who is not in my guild unless I am getting something out of it. I'm playing for fun too, why should I sacrafice my time and hard earned gold on someone I don't know. And if I suspect a guild member is only around to ask for help power leveling or asks for gold too much, they get the same treatment as a total stranger. I pay my subscription fee, and I use that subscription to further my own character, not someone elses.My favorite though, was this one guy got invited to the guild, and the first thing he asked for was money for his mount (he just hit lvl 40). And when someone said we didn't do that in our guild, that he had to go out and earn it like everyone else did, he /gquit. Fastest I ever saw someone leave a guild.We had another guy who was looking to have use help him power lvl, and when we caught on and stopped running him through instances, he left the guild. We kept track of him for a while, and warned his new guilds he entered about him. I think the same thing happened there, when they stopped running him through instances, he quit the guild. And what someone posted above is true, having all those run throughs didn't make him a good player. When he was in our guild, he was the same lvl I was. When I hit 60, I was looking for a group to do DM west so I could get my dreadsteed, and he pst me asking to come along. I checked him out and he was only lvl 51, so I ignored him, but would have ignored him anyway. Not a very good power lvler in my opinion.The most I do to help a beggar is to tell them where to get what they are asking for. Ask for gold, tell them where to go farm. Ask for a run through, tell them they will lvl faster with a group his own lvl.And my favorite, ask for summons, tell them to go take the zeplin.
