I think if you start keeping lists of porters who annoy you slightly soon you'll be walking everywhere [You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.]

I give out this receipt with every port so everyone can submit a proper expense report (I assume guilds reimburse their members for ports, what kind of bullshit guild wouldn't?):

There is also a 1p per tick surcharge waiting time when I receive a tell that yes you're definitely at the rings and you're waiting right there but when I arrive you're just zoning in.

Does that mean I could argue for a discount if they take forever to port me?

Yeah 1pp per level is dumb. Imagine telling a new warrior that they need to come up with like 15pp to get a port? Lol yeah ok
I think it's funny how people act like it would actually kill them to have to walk anywhere in this game. I'm fairly wealthy and I still walk just about everywhere, and still regularly ride boats. I detest people like you. Angry memories of the Rogue in West Commons who took 2 hours to get to Sol B because he couldn't find a teleport. It's a 10 minute walk, tops.

1pp per level is absurd. 15-20pp for a port is fine and generous.

Also, my first char was a Wizard, I've ported tons.

I thought everyone paid 50p for a port at 50

I tip 1p/level but almost never port except to skip a boat ride. People sitting in EC asking for ports to Lavastorm or Feerrott are dumb. Just grab a sow and run.

I have been doing "Your choice... i can pay you 50pp, or when we land, you roll /random 100 and that is your tip" a few times... some porters like to gamble. I've gotten ports for < 10pp but also had to pay out 80pp+.... haha

Tips are stupid. People should just charge a price. Unless they actually are okay with only taking tips. Like, if you're going to get mad that someone didn't tip or didn't tip you as much as you want then just ask for a price beforehand....
