Heck yeah! I get a sick thrill out of taking my epic kitted 70 mage through low instances to both help guildies/friends and also for profit. Sometimes I get twinks who want to farm all the blackened defias gear so they pay me by the deadmines run. At like 18 minutes a pop for a gp or two a piece, I'm better off running dailies in terms of gold/hour, but where's the fun in that?? So yeah (A) I enjoy it and (B) I typically won't turn down some currency if it's someone I don't know.As for the ethics of it, I think it's a great way for folks to flex their muscles and get revenge on places of old. From the lowbie's PoV, I hope at some point, on some character, they did it for real. I still remember my first Deadmines run shortly after launch...wiping on the docks a couple times, laughing with my teammates about the Goonies-ness of the final room. If someone is buying a merc for their first time through, that's a mistake.

Typically I'll give my price to be hired out to do an instance and they usually go indignant on me. I figure I can farm over 50+g in an hour, so to pull me away from that to run some random through an instance, I'm gunna need comparable recompense.

Agreed, I love taking my main through old school dungeons and getting that sweet revenge on those monsters/bosses that use to knock me every-which-way.Most of the time I wont charge, or I will say I will - but never ask for the gold. Many, many, many people helped me along the way and I feel as if I'm helping give back to the community in a small way.-It's just a game.

My first run through of most pre-tbc instances were just that , run throughs. I hop on a friends account and two box myself through instances. Definitely interesting exploring the zones for myself, but I obviously don't get the same effect.Then again, there are no groups available for mid level instances. I rarely ever see anyone around anymore.
