Oh my. The new scroll of resurrection is either massively deperate or amazingly clever.
Here’s what is on offer –
The Scroll of Resurrection is currently on cooldown, but will be resurrected soon. Once it’s available, you will be able to earn a free faction mount when you use a Scroll of Resurrection to bring a friend or former guildmate back to World of Warcraft, but this offer will only be available for a limited time. Any active World of Warcraft non-trial player can send a Scroll of Resurrection. To be eligible to receive a Scroll of Resurrection, your friend must have previously purchased at least one month of game time at any point in the past, and your friend’s account must have been inactive since March 4, 2012 or earlier.
Once your friend accepts your scroll and pays for at least 30 days of game, you unlock your choice of the following rewards:
- A Free Spectral Gryphon for an Alliance character
- Or a Free Spectral Wind Rider for a Horde character
And, to enable you and your friend to play together in Cataclysm’s newest content, any friend who accepts your Scroll will also receive the following epic benefits:
- A single character immediately boosted all the way to level 80 — DING!
- A FREE upgrade to Cataclysm — regardless of your friend’s original box level
- An optional FREE character move — to your realm and faction so you can play together
- 7 FREE days of game time — available immediately
This is great, though as a long time player I’m wondering where my loyalty rewards are being hidden. Perhaps the demon lord Bobby Kotick has them safely ensconced in his cellar dungeon or something.
Wow has lost a shitload of people to Swotor. Which by all accounts (boom tish!) is amazing while levelling and then takes a bit of a nosedive at endgame. (Wow did as well in vanilla, it takes time to get a community etc going and to find out their preferences so I assume Lucasmegacorp will fix it over time because they have more money than god.) Now people can come on back to wow with this rather amazing offer.
I’m now more curious about swotor than I was before, as Blizzard look rattled. As always – do de do.
