Meh! I grow less and less willing to help out newbies. For instance, I recently ran a random through the deadmines and decided to give him 50 gold to help him along. After that, all I got was spam for more gold and runs, as though it was now a right.Everything I've got, I've done on my own. It amazes me how people will expect you to give the whole day's grind to them because they just can't be bothered questing or working themselves up.Still, if a newbie is genuine and is willing to do the work themselves, I'll do whatever I can to assist.

"Still, if a newbie is genuine and is willing to do the work themselves, I'll do whatever I can to assist."Amen. I'm always happy to help someone willing to help themselves and learn to play the game.Unfortunately there are too many entitlement whores in the game. I can't go into any of the faction cities without some n00b standing around yelling plaintively for someone to give them gold or run them through deadmines or gnomer, randomly whispering people asking for same, repeatedly challenging people to duel or inviting to party.For all the whingers standing in town begging for gold pre-WotLK players telling them to quest for it get nasty whispers from others telling them to lighten up if we tell them to go quest for it like we did or if we comment that there's no good reason for a level 15 to 'need' 10g for anything.
