Some noobs always want to befriend me in order to enter higher world or help with their noobish quests. I mean why you can't atleast tell to sometime talk and party with me and let me help you? Why you chose to want to waste my time once and then just go? Use ignore button, but i don't think the button is working.

i hate hate hate HATE it!
i have had to delete several friends because of this

if i want to heal them and i have the pips i will try!
i mean seriously, does anyone else get why i get so mad at students
( especially the arrogant lower level ones)
who are they so rude to me??

it hurts my feelings
I too have a theurgist and everytime I try to finish one quest I am screamed at by some of my friends to port to them and heal them. I can't seem to do anything in Celestia because of this. They would say "plz port and heal me" in all caps and I keep telling them no and then they would say that I never help them but I do!

Really I want to go to Wiz City every once in a while but i cant because of the fact i will be BOMBBARDED by NOOBS when i walk a few steps :(
I went to WC to go to bazaar i walk 2 steps and i get a friend request. I deny. I get another request. I deny,so on till i got to bazaar. Now if they were my level i would say yes but they were from Lvl 2-28. Come on. If you are a lower lvl plz dont ask the high levels to add you cause they wont. All it does is anger us so plz stop. If you want to add us lvl up. NOOBS annoy me

i do not have a problem with this . all you need to do is turn off your friend request and then you will not be bothered by new people . There is no need to get upset when the solution is in your hands . i believe that there are plenty of problems that KI should address long before this issue .those issues are covered in many other posts so good luck .

This reminds me of a song I heard, which some people could use hearing:

It's called: No

No means no.
No is always no.
When they say no it means a thousand times no.

and goes on like that for a while.
Everyone who keeps begging and begging and begging and begging: Search NO! They Might Be Giants on the internet, click on the Amazon link, and you can listen to a sample.

my friend gave me a tatic for that!

Step 1 - unequip EVERYTHING!

Step 2 - use badge like Hero of Unicorn Way or Golem Tower Champion

Step 3 - run around pretending to need help finding the Commons Smith

Step 4 - after someone shows you, run over, talk to Zeke (go to mount shop for a second or two, you might not be able to talk to him)

Step 5 - run to where ever you need to go

Afterwards, re-equip everything and put on normal badge. Repeat when necessary.

Hope I helped!

If someone asks for me to help nicely, and I'm not busy, I will. Unfortunately, just because I helped them out once they automatically assume that I'm going to be able to just port to them at every boss/monster they have to fight. It usually works like this:

Needy person: "HEY! I NEED HELP AND YOU HELPED ME ONE TIME BEFORE SO NOW I FEEL LIKE YOU'RE OBLIGATED TO HELP ME EVERY. SINGLE. TIME."
Me: "Um, no. I'm in a battle, and I can't help at all because I'm about to log off."
*1 minute later*
Needy Person: "YOU DONE?
Me:"Nope."
*1 minute later*
Needy Person: "YOU DONE?
Me:"Nope."
*1 minute later*
Needy Person: "YOU DONE?
Me: "No. Is it really necessary to type in all caps?"
Needy Person: "YOU DONE?"
*Opens friends list, finds needy person's name, ignores*
Me: "Now back to my quest"
Other Needy Person: "HELP!"
Me: *Sigh...*

I mean, really? You can't do ANYTHING by yourself? >_<

I had that issue once when I started. One time my "friend" asked me for help on a boss I couldn't help him with "Lady Blackhope" so I said "You have to do it alone" He deleted me... I threw a party that night :D!

Before enchanted cards were banned, people were following my death character begging for enchanted scarecrow cards and i was always bombarded with friend requests. i turned off the friend request button, but now those fleeing low levels in celestia bother me once more. *sigh*
Low level: LEMME PORT
Me: You'd die against this boss.
Low Level: *ports because i forgot to turn off teleports* *dies against boss after wasting feint trap*
Me: *dies because the feint trap didnt get me enough health from wraith*
Sound familiar, anyone?

Ahhhh yes, I know that pain very well, lost quite a few friends that way.
Also, I am glad you tell them off the way you do. Life school students are NOT heal slaves! They are TO BE RESPECTED FOR THIER ABILITY TO HEAL OTHERS. Simple as that, as I am speaking as a person whos life wizard is not even his best wizard (Life level 38-39 and Ice level 60). Even on my Ice wizard I get CONSTANTLY bugged by someone who yells "HEAL ME NOW!" because i know the treant polymorph, and I have the master's boots of the dryad (still using the SUPER rare master's/astral robe set!).
So seriously treat Life wizards with some dignity and RESPECT people, with all they give to the Wizard101 community they deserve it.

The way i get around noobs swarming me is ... I chage my charactors outfit to look noob and change my title to for example "undead slayer", then when they see me they will not bother me most of the time. Unless they look at my stats then i am out of luck. But it usually works.

Good thought. I used to do something similar in Unicorn Way when I Enchanted Cards to trade (now not an option). I would do this (by which I mean "I would unequip my pet, wand, and clothes") so no upstarts would butt in (having multiple enemies to contend with in that process sucked).

I feel this, I help my friends, and since I have a lot a friends on who ask me to help them only a little bit, it feels like a needy person not wanting me to go.

I think when you go to wizard city you need to turn off friend requests

Agreed! Or random friend requests will appear on the screen. It's pretty difficult just to go to the Bazaar without getting piled with friend requests! I'm very happy Wuzard101 added turning off friend requests. This makes it so much easier to travel in Wizard City.

I delete anyone who sends me a request to help by just saying "PORT". Where are everyones manners? Is no one taught the word "PLEASE" anymore? Has anyone ever thought of starting off with: "If you're not too busy could you come help me?"

I also hate begging in the form of friend requests. You click NO, they try to add you again. You click NO, they try again. Not sure what part of NO people don't get.

Then they do it to the other person with you, only thing they don't realize is is that the other person is also your wizard on a second account.

yup, when I say no. I... STRICTLY... MEAN... NO!!!!!!!! I have a new system: Everyone starts off with a star on my list and when they do something bad they lose it. If they don't stop they get removed (I do tell them). At the end of the day the remainers get their stars back.
