I agree. I have gotten rude comments from people who need a raise. Usually they don't even say thank you after. I'm tired of all of us WHM's being used and pushed around. People take a huge advantage to us WHM's because they think we will do what they want. It is extremely annoying when they ask for raise and I'm on my way there and they do >< got a raise. They don't even say thanks anyway or sorry. I think Raise I=500g Raise II = 1500g.

(Wish I knew where I posted...I completly forgot about this thread. In any event, I'm becomming a fan of Moev)

The really odd thing is that being "/anon" isn't enough. I usually go around with my AF gear because...it's my best stuff, and I really don't have the room or gil to carry anything else. Even if I'm just using my Maul, it says right there "LV65 WHM". So even if I want to be left alone, I constantly get begged for all sorts of things. Of course, I could go "invisible" or "away" and can't send /tells to my friends. I could spend my time putting comments in that only experienced players who know better already will read. And places like the dunes still contain that ellusive Emperor's Hiarpin and some choice elementals...not to mention frequent trains of taru just waiting for a couragous Mithra to save them...well...maybe that's just me. I'm just saying, no matter what level no matter what the area, there's always a reason people show up..and not necessarily to stop, drop everything to do something else.

I don't think it matters if people charge for a raise, but seriously...what's the one thing everyone in the game will need eventually?

Courtesy...the true coin of the land.

Telling a whm to go anon is not a smart thing really. Why should they miss out on xp pt invites while farming etc? Or missions? or whatever they want to put in their search comment?

hmm double standard.....

As far as charging....depends on the situation entirely. Never in PT, but if travel is involved possibly, depends on where etc (aggro/death risk and such).

So it seems that even though some people still differ on this topic, many whms agree that it is not so evil to charge for a raise. Personally I still believe that we shouldn't even have to ask, it should be automatically given when you ask someone to come raise you.

I don't think anything new will happen in the game to say more then whats already been said here already. I didn't even plan to make another post in here. However through various topics I got to argue and fight over points of views with some pretty ok people. Even when we didn't see eye to eye on everything no feelings were hurt lol so thats a good thing.

Even ran into some people in game like Zaus, who if not for this thread I probally wouldn't have had time to chat with or bothered to talk to. Not because I am so high and mighty or because I know everything or I am too good to talk to him. Rather because I have seriously 100 different things going on in game at any given time. I have my chat LS EveryonesGrudge (have to say it's a pretty cool name) which I wish I had more time to just sit in and hangout and talk with people. Plus we started doing fun goofy stuff like taking LS pictures or doing an event together. It's just fun and good to have a place where you can go to to get away from it all.

Also I am doing Gods alot now I barely find time to exp when I need it. Anyone who is doing them knows the time involved with farming the pop items, helping a new member finish their sky pass, helping a member with some other mission or quest they want done during (and I say this loosely) "free time". Free time is more like down time while your waiting to go to a fight or whatever. Not to mention duties I have to my LS's.

So if anyone like Zaus or Darlene for example just want to pop by and say (Nice To Meet You) feel free like several people have done. I just wanted to state that 1. I don't bite unless your my BF and have made me mad lol 2. If I am sounding disinterested or rushed (Please Forgive Me) it's not that I don't care what you are saying, I am probally just running around all stressed out like a crazy lady with 1mil things to do lol.

At any given time I may have 1-10 conversations going on at the same time lol.

So hope all your whm adventures go well guys, and when they don't... which will happen I hope you atleast have fun with it. That's the most important thing right? Thanks to all those who have become a fan of me, but I'd rather you be a fan of the job I have come to love and respect. WHM because we rock lol

I think its your own opinion whether you raise someone or not, but instead of saying, "oh poor me, I cant afford anything" Think of the other jobs, how far would you be without WARs or any other tanks that keep the monsters from attacking YOU? How many of you guys would be past lv. 20? I'm not saying its your right, if you dont want to, dont, that easy. WARs dont have to help noobs who were aggroed, we do it because we can, because we were all in that situation before. We dont charge to take down monsters that aggroed someone, which if you ask me, is more dangerous than just using a spell. I wouldn't even have 500 gil to give you until I was at lv. 22 anyway, if you didnt notice when you were a noob, noobs don't have any money, we help you all the time being a high enough level to even learn raise, I think you should have the decency to help some one who is in the same area. I'm not saying drop everything, I would be a hipocrite then, what I'm saying is if they are near by and they are being nice to you, just do them the favor, If they are rude or too far away, tell them to **** off, or charge them. I know a lot of WHMs who would never charge to raises, I dont see why you guys think its necessary, you chose the job, you knew what is was going to be like, use /anon if you dont want to deal with it. the next time you lv. up in a party, think about how far you'd be if tankers werent there, he one's you want to charge 500 gil to raise.

Wow 500 gill for raise. Why not go raise them for free. It takes like 5 mins out of your time. Just think the next time you'll need a raise, it just might be the person you raised before and they might charge ya 1k for being a dumbass.

This is a great deal of thread necrosis happening here. The people who've posted here have long since changed, and most only post on QCDN.

I think you two are really missing the point. The idea of charging people comes from the fact that it isn't "5 min of your time" it ends up being a huge production of time wasting involving ungreateful children who will ask five people at the same time for a raise and not even inform any of them if they have already gotten one.

I've never charged for a raise, but I also do not automatically run to someone just because they are dead. If I am doing something I will say as much and keep doing it; if I have time, I will stop and raise. Most of the time, the people I raise are people I pass by moving from one place to another. And if you are rude to me, I will not only not raise you, I will add you to my /blacklist and never think about you again. Common courtesy is the most valuable coin you will find.

And yes.. if I ever need a raise, I rely upon my friends and I am very prepared, even at level 75, to home point.

I said it before and I'll say it again. There is a name floating over my head but at no point does it say the word "CHUMP".

I wonder how many mages got skill-ups raising people and if they decided to pay the person they raised 500 gil for helping get their magic skill up. Look whm's its a mercy job you chose to take on the role of a paramedic dont balk at helping a few people if you chose to hang around such hotbeds for deaths as Valkrum Dunes or Qufim Island then expect to be asked to share your mighty powers.

Of course I still recall the lv 8 monk I raised in south Gustaberg who once up then proceded to request I pl him so he can get back the pitance he lost earlier, I'm a helpful whm but only to an extent, raises are one thing, becoming a personal slave is something else entirely, you all just have to decide whats important to your time.

And as said before /anon is a great tool, complain you cant get invites for parties? Dont hang about Valkrum Dunes as a lv 40 then, stay near Jeuno.

This is rough topic. IMO running past a dead person and raising them is different than running to Selbina and being called to the secret Beach, then near Highlands zone, then someone died near emp spawn. You've now spent a half hour raising people when you were just going to Selbina.

Honestly if you want to charge 500g to curb the ammount of raise requests you're getting, I understand. It's annoying, and going out of your way to do it warrants 500gil.

Just make sure you have it in your search comment so that they see it before they ask you.

Being a lvl 25 whm at the time looking for ways to make money, this was a great idea.. it worked fine for me infact I was able to buy alot of gear doing this while I played. I really never had anyone complain because of course they were getting a raise, but this was 3 years ago.. 500 gil? Lol.. thats like play money now. I'd definatly charge at least 3k for a raise if I were still doing this.

I've been in the dunes a few times lately and when someone needs a raise I just raise them if i'm not in a hurry. There is a lack of people usually wanting to raise anyone there and things have really changed since all of this happened. I always get /tells with rewards now and I just tell them no, it's cool.

But yeah, if you are looking to make money as a whm this worked great for me, aswell tele does too.

LMAO. If raise requests annoy you, don't go /anon; IGNORE THEM. I do not do teles for random people EVER. Unless my friend needs it I don't do it. Same goes for raise requests. Don't wanna do it? IGNORE IT.

LMAO. If people charging for raise requests annoys you, don't post in CAPS at them; IGNORE THEM. I do not care if random people charge for raise EVER. Unless my friend is doing it, I don't care. Same goes for going /anon. Don't like the way people handle themselves? IGNORE IT.

I'm from Asura, but I thought this thread was very interesting.

As a BLM/WHM, I'm often asked for Warps, Teleports, and Raises. Teleports and Warps I will almost always charge for, unless I see the person is a newbie or I am feeling kind.

Raises I will almost always do for free EXCEPT when they ask me to come far out of my way. If I'm going to Selbina and see a dead body, raise. Free. If I'm going to Selbina and someone in Kon. Highlands asks for a raise, I expect a tip. Specially if I get off a chocobo to help them.

But mostly free raises. Kindness pays off. I raised a person in the dunes and gave them a warp for free. They asked what I wanted to be paid and I said to just pass the kindness along.

Later, one of my lower-level IRL friends sent me a tell, saying that someone had looked at her Fang Necklace, took off THEIR Spike Necklace and gave it to her! They said, 'pass the kindness along.' And, goddess above, it was the person who I had helped earlier that day.

Karma means a lot in the game. I remember those who help me and try to do something to help them out. Several times I have bought some gear for a low level player, and have had them thank me as a level 75 job months down the road.
