Good question.
I mean, from the ToS monetary transactions of ingame goods are a no no.
But what about if I pay someone to level my stuff?? Its sort of the same thing.
So I'd say your proposal would be against the TOS

However - Why is it even a concern from staff what people do with their money?

Personally I think it's your money so why not? Not sure what staff will think though :D

For what it's worth:

In RoK, CM purchases went to a specific character and it didn't matter WHO paid. Since we are talking about the intersection of RL and game, trying to seperate where the money comes from may be beyond the ability of staff without some serious expansions of capabilities. We still don't know everything there is to know about premium accounts but I can't think of a reason it would be disallowed to pay for someone elses membership. The issue of multiple memberships will have to be something to consider, but I see a problem only if the benefits affect game ballance.

As far as I know no one knows besides hawk what the pricing will be or rules will be and honestly im guessing since hes been so focused on actually implementing the code he has not set anything in stone otherwise he would have posted it by now?

As for other things like buying others memberships for benefits inside the game. I personally don't like it because I believe its borderline p2w. I mean if you pay for someone super ultra premium membership for 2 years and they give you 3 questies/gold items thats literally paying to win. Is it fair if they become the "best" player in the game because they do this for 4 diff players and hold most the wealth in the game?

With that said there is really no way to police it imo so its kind of dumb to say nope not allowed. Its kind of like saying your going to get banned because you bought beers for your friend last weekend so he will level for you.

I hope it doesn't happen much because I like the thought of pair play the best player being the best and not the person with the deepest pockets but yea thats my 2 cents.
