While running around lowbie areas working on the Loremaster title, I've handed out 10-20g to random people before. When I was a noob (back when mounts were at fourty and expensive), I was in Darn seeing how much I needed to save to get it. A random 70 opened a trade window, handed me 200g, four netherweave bags, and a BoE bow (I was a hunter).

Thought of a couple more:I love my guild. My officers and I kind of pride ourselves on helping people out, especially in a way that will benefit the guild in the long run. We came across this one Warrior once, claiming to be a tank, but when he was actually tanking, he was getting his face crit off. When our healer asked him what his Def Rating was, he replied, "What's that?"Instead of going "lolnoob" and /kicking him from the guild like the stereotype goes, we pulled him to the side, crafted him some stuff, explained to him how avoidance stats work, and now the guy's one of our best geared tanks and one of the most awesomely friendly, helpful, and cool people in our guild. Obviously, some people aren't willing to take constructive advice, but when you help people, you'd be amazed at how many friends you can make.

My GMs are like that as well. I would never run with a group that is /kicks people all the time. :)I love all these stories. I try to do stuff like this for hordies when I come across them, and they don't try to kill me right off the bat. :)

@cyaneaMy old guild was like that with me, a healer. I was healing 10man Naxx, which was my first non-5man attempt at healing, and I was Lifeblooming the helllll out of the Tankadin, which is a big nono, because 1) I was a group heals and 2) that helped drive his mana into the ground.I got a LOT of "wtf is he doing?!" in /g chat but the next day a bunch of LWs, JCs, and a Tailor threw me together a bitchin set of heal gear that still makes up a good bit of my heal gear now. Then the other two resto druids in the guild talked to me about my spec and we argued about why I thought I should/shouldn't invest points in certain things. It was a lot of fun. Ultimately it made me a pretty good healer. Unfortunately the guild fell apart, I left the realm, and now spend my days in a non-raiding RP guild. so Further gear progression has been sloowsauce :(
