I think the bigger problem here is your need/appetite for ports. By the time people were selling ports, I had the cash to pay 20+pp per. I was also in my mid-30s before I was taking multiple ports per day.

I think 20pp is a very fair price. Consider that a worthwhile port (across an ocean or continent) probably saves you at least 30 minutes, possibly an hour or more, and the value of the items/cash/XP that time should have. If you’re calling up DAP to get from WC to SRo, at lvl 17, at this stage in server (with no main to fund you), I think you’re doing it wrong.

Expecting more cash from higher levels is very fair. Expecting 5pp from a lvl 10... I don’t think so. Lvls 10s have very little business being ported as a general rule.

I usually tell people that I won't do it for less than a certain amount of plat, and they get to decide if the price is worth it. Some pay more, some pay exactly, and some flip out and accuse me of greed. I play EQ to have fun and being able to port myself and friends/groupmates around is part of that fun. Working as a taxi like it's my job is NOT fun, so the port has to be worth my while - I have no plans to go zone-to-zone advertising teleports.

Mana regen is impossible to come by right now, but that's just one factor at play. The request for a teleport is basically saying "sacrifice some of your (the druid/wizard) time to save me a lot of my time". If saving you that time isn't worth double-digit platinum at the very least, then I don't think you need a port.

The funniest thing when you do ports for a fixed or minimum price is the number of people who claim they "would have paid way more", guess what, I've ported you before and know you don't.
