I like to inspect other players, i always do that, to check gear, to see their guild, but mostly to see their transmog and what items they use, sometimes i find new players, usually they have no guild, they don’t use heirlooms, so i offer help sometimes, usually free bags, or if they ask for help i try to help.
Today, i saw someone in Pandaria, a dwarf level 88, no guild and no heirlooms, i thought this is a new player, i have Son of Animus pet, i tried to sell in the Auction House 3 times and no one buy it, so i thought of giving it to the dwarf Paladin, whispered him, told him i have this free pet, do you want it?
After a long wait, he asked why i’m offering it for free? i said i already have one, asked again if he wants it, he said no thanks, i typed “weird” but removed that before sending “alright … have a nice day”
I don’t have energy to argue, the dwarf feels suspicious of free gifts, which i think is a good thing but not in this context, i’m offering a virtual pet in a virtual world, what harm there is to fear? sigh … sometimes helping other players is harder than killing raid bosses.
This is my story today, and here is some random screenshots.
