It's a line that wavers. As a GM of a small guild, you can't always get enough people to do SM, ZF, BF when you have the quests so I have to help out to see that guildies progress. I will only run someone through an instance to get a blue drop if I know they have tried many times and it's just not happened. I also tell them they have to wish to the Blizzard gods for exactly what they don't want or what they do want won't drop when we go.I'm torn right now between trying to get a 15 year old to understand she needs to solo quest to learn her toon or /gkick. Every time she comes on she asks who wants to help her level. She doesn't have much time to play when she does come on and I know the leveling bit can be a grind, but she's never going to be an asset if all she does is loot while someone else does the killing. I'm proud that I did 70% of the walk to 70 as a solo player. Without the challenge, I would not be able to help lower levels. You learn what all the buttons on the tool bars mean and what combinations of skills can be used in certain situations. If you respec, you're not penalizing a group of people who have come to depend upon you being talented in a certain way. I generally didn't ask for help and would try to figure it out on my own, even if that meant dying repeatedly until someone said, "Would you like help with that?"If it's an alt, I'll generally run them solo through something because I know they have done the instance in an appropriate group on their main. I encourage alts of the same level to run instances simply because, when we get into that endgame instance, if you don't know how to play the toon you brought, you're a liability, I don't care if you're solid blue or purple. I've met two players, so far, who, while wiping the group for the 3rd time, admitted they "inherited" the level 70 they were playing from a college roommate who was leaving the game. A third person was power leveled by her boyfriend. Never going to group with them again. They will always be the person who has to be dragged around. Someone else can do it. Not me.
