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!

    I think it's a good feature... not everyone has the time to play wow 10 hours a day, they should see the content as well

    This is kind of genius. Think about it SWtoR came out a little over 78 days ago and with the old Scrolls of Resurrection you had to have not played WoW in 90 days. A lot of people who canceled their account when SWtoR came out will probably come back on this, not to mention a lot of others.

    So free upgrade to cata, does that mean if I have WoW/BC on an 'alt' account, I can SoR and it becomes a 2nd Cata account? Or do I have to buy WOTLK, too?

    ah i see, i misread it. its not a free lvl 80, it boosts an existing character to level 80, then gives you a faction/server change for free, quite awesome.

    Hmmm, I think this is a BIT short sighted. Lets give ppl who haven't played a character with a tonne of abilities they don't know how to use so they can start, be bewildered and cursed at by everyone and go "screw it" forever....Surely giving them 1 character that has 400% exp until level 80 would make a BIT more sense? There's at least some time getting used to how to play the class before you get thrown in with the community at large?

    To me it just seems like Blizzard is clinging to any means they have to get subscriptions cause they know when GW2 hits this year they are screwed. *1 million beta sign ups......That game is going to have them scared when it goes launch.

    This is so riddiculously desperate, it actually pleases me.

    It is not a free level 80 toon it is a "Boost to level 80"
    you can make a lvl 1 lvl 80 with this, or a lvl 79 lvl 80. the choice will be the player's. If used in one way, yes, its a free lvl 80.

    As a 5year paying customer, I would like a free factionchange / transfer too.

    As expected, everyone are saying that Blizzard are getting desperate and WoW is dying. I don't see what the big deal is.

    Sure. Thats why i rarely read the comments in the news anymore. It's almost the same every time.


    I wonder if i can send a scroll to myself for my old account and get a lvl 80 for free and just transfer it on my main account.

    Good. They've been sitting on their laurels a little too long. Maybe they'll actually try to make MoP worth playing now.

    lol wut

    Why don't you go log in and see for yourself.*

    I'm not saying this won't be announced and that the pic is a fake, I'm just saying. It's not live (yet). So until shit is confirmed, people should probably chill. Instead of going straight to the comments with OMG WOW IS DYING TROLLLLLOLOLO, I opted to log in and (de)confirm this. Saw it wasn't live, took post with grain of salt.
