MMO-Champion - Scroll of Resurrection Revamp - Free lvl 80 Character and more!
Update - People are wondering how newly level 80 characters will be able to do anything with their level 10 or level 20 gear. The answer is probably in the new ilvl 232 uncommon armor sets + weapons introduced a while back on Patch 4.3 PTRs. However, this is pure speculation and we should probably sit tight and wait for the official announcement.

Scroll of Resurrection Revamp - Free lvl 80 Character and more!
The new Scroll of Resurrection revamp seems to be on live servers and includes a free level 80 character and a free character/faction change for the person you're bringing back to the game! We will probably get more information from Blizzard very soon.

We can only assume that the Spectral Gryphon and Spectral Wyvern Mounts teaser from yesterday means people doing the recruiting also get nice perks.

Thanks to Kaeh for his forum post!

    1. Why would they reward loyalty? They already know you're going to keep playing, and have no need to convince you to keep paying.

    2. I love seeing everyone here complain about things. The deep rooted issue is that you're unhappy with the game and are too addicted to actually step up and quit.

    3. The whole point in doing this is so that said persons reactivate their accounts thus getting $15 for every sucker who falls for this trap.

    4. "Remember the good old days in WoW? I do, time to start playing!" -- LOL the "good old days" are over, this game is nothing like it used to be, and the fact that they are using nostalgia to sucker more players in is pretty sad, but good move on their part.

    I love all the freaking out without fact checking. People, log in. This isn't in there. It doesn't work.It may be real, but it isn't working like this on live servers (as far as I can tell...aka on my account with multiple friends who haven't been active for anywhere from 3 months to 1 year).

    I knew you were desperate to bring people back to the game, Blizzard, but this is just sad.

    On the upside, free level 80 rogue, the only class i ain't yet got past 30. All i gotta do is transfer it to my active account. Worth it.
    Seems like they'll get a free mount.

    Honestly though, one of the biggest reasons why my friend stopped playing was the whole $70-80 issue just to catch up to date. They actually resolved it with this revamped scroll of resurrection.

    I want a free level 80 character. I can't stand leveling anymore but I really want to try a resto shaman. Can I send myself a scroll? Why shouldn't I be rewarded with a level 80 character for NOT letting my subscription lapse?

    In case people did not realize till now. Blizzard is losing subscribers at a record speed, and the joining subscibers cant compare to the amount of whos leaving the game.Hence, all the new stupid perks, idiotic deals, and shit

    free upgrade to cata = awesomefree character transfer/faction change combo = awesome"What about learning your class?" ppl doing this are old time players, so they're not really noobs. if they are rolling a new class, they can learn their class just like i can learn my class : research at 3rd party websites / class forums / and dungeons."Are you going to fight mobs naked?" no, i venture they're going to provide you a soulbound lvl 80 gear package for a spec you choose.

    i asked in the other thread and got no response :P but i think its 2months .

    Thats a really good idea for them and for the players.

    Don't understand the hate, its not like they've never played the game before and their whole account is being put to 80. Its one char and with the free transfer and faction change its better for them to come back instead of spending so much money.

    Might convince some of my friends who left due to money back in Wrath

    Boubouille fact checks. He doesn't just upload this stuff on a whim. If it's on here, it's legit.
