Default What's the going rate for ports?

Is there a commonly accepted standard amount to pay for a port? The couple of times I've gotten a ride I've given them 5-6pp, which doesn't seem like a lot but I don't really have a lot. Is there a standard? Am I offending the world's druids?

One plat per level of the one getting a port seems to be the standard

30-40 plat seems a bit steep.

I usually give 10p and I think thats MORE than enough.

just ask before you get the port if what your offering is acceptable to them - everyone has different ideas on what is acceptable

I give 10p if it's just me. 5p if they are heading there anyway with another person. My max char is lvl 24 though.

Generally 1p per level but it all depends on the player.

We can clearly tell if you are a new player or not. I know most of the time when a newer player hands me plat I just dont accept it. Sometimes even give them plat or gear from port trades.

Give what you can til you can make enough to pay what you really want to.

My main is a druid and I see a whole range of tips, today for instance I was tipped anywhere from 6pp to 50pp. On average I'd day people give between 15-25pp, but it fluctuates. In any case, don't sweat it too much. The most important thing is that you just say thanks or something. [You must be logged in to view images.
