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!

    Are people really that thick? I'm so bored of the wow is dying psychobabble, there are 10million people playing. Yes they lost 800k, but in a massive game it's to be expected that there are surges and decreases of numbers during every quarter. You are just extremely bad trolls/morons/have no idea how an mmo works. God forbid a few people quit here and there, it's clearly dying. Why don't you calculate the 10mil players x 12euros a month and tell me how bankrupt it is... Just stop being butthurt that every "wowkiller" to have ever come out has failed to dent it. Remember when Lord of the rings was going to be the wowkiller? And Conan? And Waronline? And Eve and DC Universe and star trek and god knows what else. It just kills you inside that people actually enjoy a 7 year old game rather than a shinier one. Shiny doesn't mean it's decent, which all the previous 'wow killers' have proved. And to the other side of the trolling, handing you an 80 isn't really much different from how fast you can already get it from RaF. To everyone that can't read by the way, you only get the free level 80 if you use the scroll of resurrection in the next 90 days, after that the offer is over. The revamp they did to 1-60 will still be seen by new players after this promotion is over.

    GW2 is different. I found GW to be immensely boring and everyone I knew who tried it dropped it within a month. WoW is not in deep trouble if they have 10 million subs.

    So lets see, if I want another account, but I dont want to pay for all the expansion, all i need to do is buy a $15 basic game, stop playing for 3 months, use my main account to resurrect the alt account and you get a free lvl 80, gear, character transfer, a mount for your main account... nice.

    GW2 is nothing like the original GW. I don't think WoW is going anywhere anytime soon, but they are going to start really hemorrhaging subscriptions when GW2 comes out, that would be my prediction at least.

    The same lines were used when SWTOR was coming. WoW didn't take a beating. So, pardon me if I don't see GW2 stealing the MMO spotlight.

    Wow, I'd love to meet the guy who thought it would be a sweet idea to boost someone to 80 so they have even LESS idea what the fuck they're supposed to be doing and being a massive thorn in the balls of everyone trying to make their way through the torture of random dungeons as painlessly as possible. Really. Awesome idea.

    You do realize this is an offer to people who have WoW accounts, which means they know how the game works :\

    I guess by skipping the whole thing it doesn't ruin the experience..... it just does something weird where they completely take it out. Blizz is trying so hard to appease fans by eliminating the challenging stuff in the game which made it fun, which is my big complaint. It's only a matter of time before stuff like botting is legalized from this point on too, hell most of the time the bots receive no reprecussions in the first place. I stopped playing a month ago (yeah, i know, i'm still on mmo-champ, the site is fun to check out tho), but seeing stuff like this lets me know i made the right choice.

    Shame on you Blizz for giving people benefits for bring there friends back to WoW. And shame on you for being the only ones to do this kind of thing. (Im being sarcastic. for those who are a little slow)

    How long has it been since leveling was challenging?

    Too long. Used to be fun when people would team up for quests, and by golly, for some you actually had to. The game lacks that social aspect that it used to have. Now it's on the hampster wheel for dragon soul epics non-stop because none of the other gear matters. I'm just saying I think the old system was a lot more fun, then again, I seems like the majority don't care about anything but obtaining epics as easy as possible - if that means nerfing everything, then so be it.

    You mean those*obsolete*elite zones and group quests? Problem is people dont bother those quests, because there isnt that much people leveling to group with. Most players have already got their*characters*level capped.

    Most non-English WoW expansions are available as a free upgrade, only US and EU have to pay for the game, just saying.

    Don't worry, they can just make dungeons easier.

    they added all that lovely new content to low zones and re-made the world. Now they make an offer where you can totally skip all that stuff - I mean wtf?
