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!

    Why stop with a lvl 80 and free greens? Within a couple months I'm betting you get an 85 and full heroic raid epics.

    Next RaF/SoR bonuses? A year of free WoW, a free copy of Diablo 3 and any expansions that come out thereafter, auto-ding max level, free Heroic epic set from the latest raid, free set of latest Arena PvP gear, one million two hundred thousand and seventy five gold, a hundred bucks, and a BRAND NEW CAR!

    Blizzard is so desperate to delay the inevitable, anything to artificially stop the domino of cancelled subscriptions.

    All you people moaning about "learning your class", please realise that you're wrong. Learning your class has nothing to do with leveling. Classes change drastically every 10 levels or so, by the time you're 85 you won't be playing like you did at lower levels. Plus, you might want to consider respeccing, then what? Level again with that spec to "learn" it?

    And please drop the notion that classes take ages to learn. WoW isn't the hardest game, especially if you're pve'ing. Takes a day at most to learn what to do. More for pvp, but definitely doesn't take the whole leveling process to understand class mechanics.

    TL;DR version: Shut up.

    With RAF it could be possible to get to level 80 in about 10 hours. Considering it now takes less exp getting through 70 to 79.

    Man... this has nothing to do with other mmos, this has only to do with WoW and how bad it has turned. Every other mmo arround has free trials, so plz be reasonable isntead of being a blinded fanboy.

    With RaF+Perks+Boa it took me 14hrs 20mins to level an other Hunter from 1-80. I wouldn't say it's impossible but it IS doable in 10. ;-)

    I have every class to 85 but I only play one at time and usually go months with out playing the others. When I do finally start playing different class again at 85 I've completely forgotten how to play him and it usually takes less than a hour to figure it out.

    Learning your class isn't difficult at all.

    Wow lol, looks like the new devs are almost finished with urinating on what the old devs worked so hard to achieve. I predict the next big change will be that bosses drop epics even when you don't kill them, or an experience bar that grows even while just sitting in ogrimmar and stormwind.

    Unless blizz invents a scroll of forgetfulness, I won't forget the reason I no longer play and give them my money.

    Because it takes 6 years do lvl to 85? No i didn't think so. This saves people about one month of leveling

    How does a boost to 80 for ONE SINGLE CHARACTER ruin the 1-60 experience exactly?
