The Scroll of Resurrection Retires
Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
The time has come to bid adieu to the Scroll of Resurrection. It’s served its divine purpose, but like most scrolls, it only has so many charges before it loses its magic and crumbles into ethereal dust. For those who’d still like a chance to use the scroll, you have until February 18 before players are no longer able to send invitations. For those who have an invitation outstanding, that’s still good for 30 days from the time it was sent, after which point the invitation will expire and the benefits can no longer be claimed.

For additional information on the Scroll of Resurrection, please visit our FAQ.

Battle.Net Launcher Update
The Battle.Net Launcher was recently updated to add support for Warlords of Draenor.

    It should. I don't think they added it to the patch notes though.

    Hope the 90 boost is available soon.

    Wow that's bullshit that they're getting rid of the Scroll of Resurrection outright like that...good job Blizzard, way to fail even harder than before...
  1. Rocheku's Avatar
    And just like that the spectral gryphon / wyvern tied to the scroll of resurrection becomes unobtainable!

    Why are they killing SoR?
    Also, after this patch they HAVE TO announce beta soon.

    They're probably giving it the "Recruit a Friend" treatment.

    What's the point when everyone is going to be getting a free 90 with WoD? It's been around long enough. Mount will probably only be gone as long as the Zhevra was. Probably tacked onto RAF at some point.
  1. Chrispotter's Avatar
    a patch that really contains nothing.. just hope it means beta is coming very very soon!

    Hopefully I can log in after this patch... right? RIGHT?

    Do we still not know the pricing for the level 90 boosts?
  1. Aven Blackery's Avatar
    I was hoping for the preorder and 90 boost to be available immediately, a bit disappointed...
  1. thedingleberry's Avatar
    I wouldn't call this a patch. It includes barely anything when it goes live. It's basically just signifying the start of a new pvp season.

    Yup it would appear Blizzard are going all out for the hard sell of returning players buying WoD with the free level 90 as the only way they can return to the game. Makes sense I suppose from their perspective.

    Does anyone know what the boost to 90 is going to cost?

    Now there's wishful thinking. As far as I know, "Friends & Family Alpha" hasn't even begun (or the news about it hasn't leaked yet), and you still got closed beta testing to do (which takes several months), AND releasing the 6.0 patch to live servers (which is likely to release about a month before the expansion pack, per usual).

    You're looking at 6 months MINIMUM before Warlords of Draenor is released. I'd estimate closer to October/November.
