While I think it is a "service" to the casual player, it is also a disservice. I am a firm believer of working hard to get your rewards, and I feel that if people start to do this "service" then those people that pay will begin to think that they can buy thier way through anything.

"working hard" in a game, not everyone can or wants to "work hard". I pay somebody to fertilize my lawn, I pay somebody to paint the interior of my house, guess i don't work hard enough. Oh wait I had to work in order to earn that money. Same thing, this guy was smart and found a way to earn money for his guild for their hard work, smart imo.

Liel, I think you got your analogy a little mixed up. This isn't like paying someone simply for a service like lawn work or painting. It's like paying others to do work you are supposed to do.A better analogy would be to pay someone else to do your homework for you. Sure, it gets the job done and you worked to have the money to spend it however you wish, but there is something inherently wrong with relieving oneself of such responsibility... especially when that responsibility is FUN and makes you a better player too.Now don't get me wrong. I do not think less of people who take this individual up on his offer. However, I do believe that they are selling themselves short.If Bliz agrees, they'll nerf it like they did the Chess event loot chest in Karazhan.

I don't know if "earn" is really accurate for this. Especially because of the nature of this quest. I've considered doing this on my OWN cleared instance for my herb/ore alts that have no business being in ZA. Does that make me a cheater?

Jagoex got what I was trying to say, but I think Liel missed the point. Its one thing to buy a piece of crafted gear because you have the money to do something. But this is a quest. The bag is a perk for at least clearing the first boss. @Algorithm: I dont think there is any issue with bringing YOUR alts into the place to farm the ore/plant nodes because it was you that cleared the raid in the first place.All I was trying to make a point of was that doing this is telling people that they can buy anything: quest rewards, arena points, raid drops, literally anything. And at least on my server, tier 4 raid gear is being sold easy by the upper lvl guilds. I personally have an issue with this, and have said so. People need to earn their gear, not get by easy.
