Recruit A Friend - How To Recruit Yourself for Rewards
The new Recruit A Friend system is now live and brings new rewards, including two mounts, one pet, a transmog set with a rucksack and more! In this guide we're going to show you how to unlock all of these rewards by recruiting yourself.

If you want to get all the rewards then this month is the perfect time to do that, as new accounts can get a 50% discount on their first World of Warcraft subscription.

How To Recruit Yourself


To get all the 12 rewards from the new Recruit A Friend system, you will first need three active game accounts (World of Warcraft accounts) on your main Blizzard account.

You will use these three accounts to recruit several new Blizzard accounts and then purchase one month of game time on each of them via subscription.

Step By Step Guide


If you can create two World of Warcraft starter accounts on your main Blizzard account then follow this guide. If you cannot create any starter accounts on your main Blizzard account then you'll have to use a slight variation of this guide, which you can find below this one.

Step 1. Generate a Recruit-A-Friend invite link on your WoW#1 account (which is on your main Blizzard account). Use this link to recruit two World of Warcraft accounts on the same Blizzard account. These accounts are basically your RAF1 and RAF2 accounts, however, for clarity, we're going to refer to them as WoW#2 and WoW#3.



Step 2. Purchase one month of game time on your WoW#2 and WoW#3 accounts (which are on your main Blizzard account).

Step 3. Create 10 email accounts and name them something like "YourNameRAFNumber@email.com". Throughout this guide we're going to refer to these emails as RAF3, RAF4, … RAF12.

Step 4. Use the invite link from WoW#1 to recruit RAF3 and RAF4.

You will have to create two new Blizzard accounts and purchase one month of game time on them via subscription. Since these accounts are new, you can use the New Player Offer to save 50% on the first month. This will cost you $7.5/€6.5 per account.


Step 5. Generate a Recruit-A-Friend invite link on your WoW#2 account (your main Blizzard account) and use that link to recruit RAF5, RAF6, RAF7 and RAF8.

Once again, you will have to create four new Blizzard accounts and purchase one month of game time on them via subscription. Since these accounts are new, you can use the New Player Offer to save 50% on the first month. This will cost you $7.5/€6.5 per account.

Step 6. Generate a Recruit-A-Friend invite link on your WoW#3 account (your main Blizzard account) and use that link to recruit RAF9, RAF10, RAF11 and RAF12.

Once again, you will have to create four new Blizzard accounts and purchase one month of game time on them via subscription. Since these accounts are new, you can use the New Player Offer to save 50% on the first month. This will cost you $7.5/€6.5 per account.

The total amount of money you're going to spend with this method is $105/€91. You will get all the Recruit A Friend rewards.



If You Cannot Create New Accounts


If you cannot create any starter accounts on your main Blizzard account then follow this guide.

Step 1. Purchase one month of game time on your WoW#2 and WoW#3 accounts (which are on your main Blizzard account).

Step 2. Create 12 email accounts and name them something like "YourNameRAFNumber@email.com" to easily keep track of these emails. Throughout this short guide we're going to refer to these emails as RAF1, RAF2, … RAF12.

Step 3. Generate a Recruit-A-Friend invite link on your WoW#1 account (your main Blizzard account) and use that link to recruit RAF1, RAF2, RAF3 and RAF4.



Step 4. Generate a Recruit-A-Friend invite link on your WoW#2 account (your main Blizzard account) and use that link to recruit RAF5, RAF6, RAF7 and RAF8.

Step 5. Generate a Recruit-A-Friend invite link on your WoW#3 account (your main Blizzard account) and use that link to recruit RAF9, RAF10, RAF11 and RAF12.

Step 6. Purchase one month of game time on the 12 Recruit A Friend accounts via subscription. Since these accounts are new, you can use the New Player Offer to save 50% on the first month.

If you have to use this method, please note that you will pay an additional $15/€13 for game time on the last two Recruit A Friend accounts. That being said, the offer is still good, as you will get all the Recruit A Friend rewards at a great price!


Payments & Rewards Info


  • Please note that when you subscribe, the full amount of money will be put on hold on your card. Do not worry, as that is normal. After the transaction goes through, the amount of money shown on the transaction will be updated, and you will be charged for the discounted amount.
  • It can take up to three days to receive the rewards. In most cases, you will receive the rewards within minutes. However, they will only show up after you have logged in and out of the accounts.
  • If you don't intend to play on the recruited accounts after the first month of game time has passed, don't forget to cancel your subscription and/or remove your payment methods.
  • For more info about the Recruit A Friend system, eligibility, invitation process, rewards, restrictions and limitations please check this Support Article or the Recruit A Friend Page on the official website.

    I'd wager, at most, 5 people are actually using RAF to actually recruit a friend.

    Yeah... This guide totally proves that it is bringing others to the game...
    It is so sad what (and for how much money) people will do just to get 'unique' looking shit in computer game, lol.

    Technically you can do that. You can fork out ~$180 to get all rewards by recruiting only one ALT account trough RAF.
    $180 - $60 (4 free months) = $120.
    So, total process of "less hustle" is $120 while following this guide its $45 since its taking advantage of "new accounts" sub offer for %50 fee ($7.5)
    Hmmm, you actually made it seem reasonable to pay for this...if this game wasn't turning into a grind with no fun to have, I would probably do it.

    If you complain and whine loudly about store cosmetics like mounts, which have no impact on your enjoyment, then yes, you come over as an angry person.

    The system was designed to get people to get their friends to play. Obviously the people who wrote this guide knows that there are people that will just pay out of their own pockets (there’s already a forum on mmo-c someone made, and others joined in, that asks about it), and decided to post about a way for those players to save a buttload or money.
    I doubt I’ll do this (I might, but I really only like the plane model), but this is the time to do it if people choose to because of the 50% off. Otherwise, WoW friends and family and see if anyone has any interest to try it out.

    "I am angry person without friends and i am poor...?"
    You clearly did not even finish my post, did you?... Or even the post from the person i replied to?

    Do i really have to explain again that store mounts/pets/1year sub/current RAF has got impact for EVERYONE playing this game?
    Please do not be blinded by 'do not like it do not buy it' agenda...

    Guess Blizzard urgently needs more subscriptions in December to pad "active" player numbers for both Q4 2019 and Q1 2020. Nothing new there.

    Its even more reasonable if you take into consideration that RAF gives you access to two unique mounts, which accounts to $50 for the calculated price of $45.
    I was also tempted to make use of this gimmick but the game partly lost its charm for me.
    Taken in concern that 9.0 is well over 8 months away so we will be running around grinding same stuff until 9.0 - yea, ill pass it for now.
    Next year this time maybe. but for now, despite all math - pass.

    EDIT: Im starting to explore other games and game's genders, which is something that is somewhat strange for me since i havent done that well over 7-10years, having only WoW installed.

    This is just sad.

    I would like the transmog i like the style as it is normal looking and not over the top christmas tree and the plane mount but i would like to get it from archaeology not from this kind of crap.

    most convoluted and expensive cash shop item ever

    sad that most purchases are likely existing hardcore players instead of new ones

    How does 1 year sub impact everyone? (and I'm assuming you mean in a negative way)

    You give them money without knowing how shit (or good but i do not believe that) game will be so they do not need to care or try anymore about players since they already got their profits.
