    Recruit A Friend Returns - Blizzard Preview

    Recruit A Friend Returns!

    What’s New?
    The new-and-improved Recruit A Friend (RAF) program retains fan-favorite features, and it introduces a bounty of new rewards—because Azeroth is best experienced with friends at your side. Just like the previous program, you can teleport to each other with Friend-to-Friend Summoning (which works on a 30 minute cooldown) and receive 50% bonus experience when partied together.

    More Recruits, More Rewards
    The new Recruit A Friend program allows you to be linked with up to 10 friends, and earns game time and other unique rewards—like mounts, pets, and more—the longer they play. Players new to WoW and veteran players who have not purchased game time on their account in the past two years can be enlisted in this program. Each time one of your recruits adds game time to their account, you’ll earn progress toward a new reward. The more friends you invite, the faster you’ll earn the rewards, as one friend adding multiple months of game time earns the same rewards as multiple friends adding one month of game time each. See all the rewards you can get below!*

    • Rikki - 1 Month
    • Game Time – 2 Months
    • Explorer’s Dunetrekker – 3 Months
    • Title: Renowned Explorer – 4 Months
    • Game Time – 5 Months
    • Enchant: Stinging Sands – 6 Months
    • Renowned Explorer’s Tabard – 7 Months
    • Game Time – 8 Months
    • Explorer’s Jungle Hopper – 9 Months
    • Renowned Explorer’s Rucksack – 10 Months
    • Game Time – 11 Months
    • Renowned Explorer’s Attire – 12 Months


    Rewards shown from left to right: Renowned Explorer’s full set as shown (Attire, Tabard, and Rucksack), Rikki, Renowned Explorer’s Jungle Hopper, and Explorer’s Dunetrekker. Not pictured – Enchant: Stinging Sands.

    • Rikki—This curious monkey is ready to see the world at your side.
    • Explorer’s Dunetrekker—Traverse deserts, jungles, tundra, and beyond on this two-seater mount.
    • Renowned Explorer Title—Distinguish yourself with a unique title.
    • Enchant: Stinging Sands—Enhance the appearance of your weapons with swirling sands.
    • Renowned Explorer’s Tabard—Don this rugged tabard to show off your adventurous streak.
    • Explorer’s Jungle Hopper—Soar through Azeroth’s skies on this mount for two.
    • Renowned Explorer’s Rucksack—Always be prepared for adventure with this bustling backpack.
    • Renowned Explorer’s Attire—Look the part of a grizzled outdoorsperson with this rugged appearance.

    Game Time
    Every 3 months after your 12-month reward, you’ll get a game time reward.

    Recruiters must have active game time to earn and claim rewards.


    Go it Together
    Time flies when you’re having fun, and it goes even faster when you and your recruits play together. Conquer Azeroth alongside your friends and you’ll both receive a 50% bonus to experience for faster leveling when partied together. You can also summon each other once every 30 minutes. Furthermore, our new Party Sync feature makes it easier than ever to level with friends. When activated, everyone in the party becomes aligned to the same quest state and phase. You’ll also have access to a “replay quest” feature that allows players who’ve already completed certain quests to replay them with their friends for rewards that are appropriate to their current level, regardless of the quest’s original level. Quests can be replayed for rewards once per day.

    If you’d prefer to play with your friend using a current character rather than starting a new one, you now can. By using Party Sync, you can choose to have your level adjusted so you can quest and experience outdoor content with your friends as they level up. And, If you want to queue for instanced content (such as Battlegrounds and dungeons) in their level range, you can choose to join them by having your level scaled down.

    Please note that unlike Timewalking, when your level is scaled, you will temporarily lose access to abilities and powers (such as Azerite Traits and over-level spells, abilities, talents, and trinket effects) with requirements that exceed your reduced level.

    Lead with Confidence
    To help you help your friends, we’ve created a brand-new RAF panel in-game to help you know when to expect your next reward and given your access to Party Sync. The RAF panel also lists special activities available to players who participate in the program. Complete these in-game challenges with your recruits to earn even more rewards.

    Start Your Journey
    The new Recruit A Friend lets you generate a custom link in-game that you can send to your friends. This link will help you and your recruit connect in-game, and you’ll be able to see if they’ve purchased game time, which will lead to rewards for you! For each month your recruits have active game time, you’ll earn a new reward, such as unique pets, mounts, game time, and more. These rewards unlock each month and scale with the amount of time your recruits have subscribed for. And, of course, with Party Sync, you’ll be able to journey with your friends on any of your characters.


    Adventure Awaits
    Recruit A Friend returns to World of Warcraft in the next few months. When you’re ready to bring your friends to Azeroth, simply log in to WoW and generate an invite link through the Recruit A Friend interface, then send that link to your friends. Up to four friends can use it to link their accounts to yours. To recruit more friends, you’ll need to generate a new link, which you can do once every 30 days.

    *In-game rewards are available to use in World of Warcraft, but not in World of Warcraft® Classic. Free game time earned through Recruit A Friend provides access to both World of Warcraft and WoW Classic.

    Can't just bring a friend and get your reward anymore like before, gotta keep them in for at least 4 investor reports this time around, oh but don't worry we'll obliterate the exp bonus too, need to keep those boosts selling.

    Been wanting my rucksack to show on my back since vanilla. Shame it's only available through this.

    Phew. Does not affect Classic. Good stuff!

    So, if I'm active can I recruit a friend who stop playing +2 years ago (and that also had been recuited by me previously)?

    Seems plausible

    Oh, welp time to buy a year worth of gametime.

    Do have a question, what about the old RAF mounts/pets?

    Makes sense. The previous system probably ended up being ineffective - probably just had a lot of people buying a second acc for the rewards then ditching it; which isn't what this is intended for.

    So what if someone just buys a year sub - does that instantly grant all the rewards?

    i dont think you know, but your friend even before needed to buy 2 months for you to get the mount.
    this is actually abit easier, as you can get 10 friends foro ne month, instead of having to get each freidn for 2.

    There it is, there it fucking is.

    I'm 100% positive that this "Renowned Explorer's Attire" will be xmoggable over any armor type.

    There's your Cash Shop fully implemented now, except in the case of F2P MMOs, this is 100x more expensive. (15$x12 = $180). Whereas on the F2P the set would likely be $15 to $20.

    or recruit 10 people 1 month each...
    the old system also required that the people be subbed for atleast 2 months ontop of the month they got for buying the game.

    "The set" is the main prize.

    RIP BFA! 8/27.

    This is exactly what I will be doing and I already did this multiple times in the past to get all the RAF mounts. Such a tedious process.

    1. the backpack is 10 months, not 12, the rest of the armor set is 12 months


    is it? idk about you but
    pet=5$
    gametime=15$
    mount=25$
    title=lets say i would pay 2$ for one
    game time=15$
    enchant= 5$ lets say
    tabard=5$
    Game time=15$
    mount=25$
    THE BACKPACK= 5$ like a tmog helmet from store before
    game time=15$
    full set= lets say 10$

    142$ value


    lets say you literally make another account just for these items you are paying 12 months (for the full set, you only need 10 months for the backpack, i guess both yall cant read)
    that is 180$ lets see what you get
    pet, 4 months of game time back (so really your only paying for 8 months of gametime) a title, 2 mounts, a full set including the special backpack, a weapon enchant, a tabard



    but again you only need 10 months for the rucksack, and you get 3 months free, so really your only paying for 7 "wasted" months.

    Lol.

    I mean you can stay under that desk and swallow what Activision gives you, but I sure won't.

    This isn't a "142$" value. The set ALONE is what everyone will want, so they can xmog it on any armor type. They put the set at the 12 month mark FOR A REASON.
    RIP BFA! 8/27.

    1. i love how i provide facts and am met with "lol gargle activisions cock more"
    2. does "everyone want that set" it looks pretty average, i dont think im gunna see hundreds of people running around in it, its pretty average. the backpack yes, but thats only on 10 months, which is still late in, but again proves you dont know how to read that your saying it comes from 12 months
    3. again its only really 120 (i know "only 120) cause you get 4 months of time for doing the whole thing.

    also i find it funny people praise classic for how leveling was an advneture, it took time and it took dedication.
    meanwhile "LOL BLIZZARD NOT MAKING LEVELING ON RETAIL SUPER QUICK, WOW SHIT GAME"
    RaF giving tons of exp just felt bad, cause it made it so that people felt forced to level with friends, and that they needed to force their friends to play so they could level much faster.
