  • How the New scroll of Ressurection Works

    OK, I've done this TWICE already since last night...here is how it works:

    Overview: How It Works:

    Player A sends his friend, "Retired", a "Scroll of Resurrection" via one of two methods:
    - In-Game (from within the Friend dialogue box) - there is a botton in the top right corner, click it, then choose the persons name)
    - From the Blizzard site:
    1. Login to your Blizzard account
    2. Click on your World of Warcraft account in the middle of the page
    3. Scroll down and find the "Referrals & Rewards" button - click on it

    4. Select "Scroll of Resurrection"

    5. Select "Send Invitations", it's the left-most button

    6. Click on YOUR toon name that you want to use to send the invitation. This is NOT who gets the mount...but it is who shows up in your friend's screen so they know who sent it to them.

    7. On this screen, fill in the fields. You have two (2) options - send by toon name, or send by email. Obviously you need to know their Blizzard email to choose that option, so work it out with them which you will use.

    8. After you click on "Send Invitation", your friend will get the invite. This method can take 10-30 minutes for them to receive it - be patient!



    What Next?

    Your friend, "Nogoldned", will get two things....
    1. An Email notifying them they have been sent a scroll. That email includes a link to click on to accept the scroll, or....
    2. A message on THEIR Blizzard account page letting them know they've been invited.

      IMPORTANT: Once they accept the scroll, it's done....they just got 7 DAYS of free wow time, that's it.
      • They have NOT yet received their free 80 levels
      • They have NOT yet received their free faction/server change
      • YOU have not yet received your mount



    Finishing It Up - Mounts and Free Level 80!

    Your friend, Nogoldneed, now needs to SUBSCRIBE for at least 30 days. IMPORTANT INFORMATION:
    • IF your friend pays with a credit card, Paypal, etc......
      • HE gets a free level 80, which includes....
        1. 80 Levels - FREE!
        2. Full set of Level 80 (iLvl 232) Green quality gear for his apporpriate spec - already equipped!
        3. Four (4) Frostweave Bags, already equipped
        4. Full Talent Spec (chosen from inside his Blizzard account when he accepted the scroll)
        5. All Skills up to level 80 - TRAINED!
        6. Free port to Stormwind or Orgrimmar, regardless of where he is or started
        7. NO Glyphs
        8. Gear he was wearing in his mailbox
        9. 75 Gold!

      • HE gets a free faction/server change - one time.
      • YOU get NOTHING for seven (7) days - that's right. I called Blizzard...to avoid scams, they will not be awarding the free spectral mounts until Nogoldned's credit card is actually charged, which is SEVEN (7) days from now!

    • IF your friend buys a Gametime card and uses that....
      • HE gets all his rewards
      • YOU get your mount immediately



    Other Thoughts
    • The Web based system is SLOW - my Email based invite took 20-30 minutes to arrive in my friends account
    • The in-game based system is SLOWER - it took ONE HOUR for my in-game invitation to arrive in my friends account
    • Once your friend accepts, it still takes 15-20 minutes for the invitation to show as accepted in your account.
    • There is a little box on the right inside the "History" button. It will show you that, "Exclusive in-game mount not yet earned" if you are waiting the 7-day grace period.
    • Only TWO (2) invitations can be sent per day....one each from the website, and from in-game.


    WHY BOTHER?

    For me, although leveling is easy, I am a busy hard working person who doesn't always have time to level multiple toons. This was a VERY EASY way for me to get a free Level 80 "profession" toon. In other words, one of my invited friends is my own spare account I let expire....I will make a Level 80, and probably give him Alchemy and Tailoring, without having to take the time to level him.

    Step 2 - I will pay $25 to transfer that toon to my main's account....I don't plan on keeping the account active for more than the 30 days required for the rewards. So, the $25 is worth it to me instead of paying $15/month just to keep it active. Plus next year's scroll, I can do it again!

    If I forgot anything, please add to this thread....enjoy!

      Great write up @Namssob, gave you some rep and published the post on the homepage.

      I laughed a bit at the "75 Gold!" bit :P

      Does the "Free faction/server change" include account to account transfers? For example my Account 1 revives my Account 2, can I use the transfer on Account 2, to send the L80 to Account 1?

      LOL - NO, and I specifically asked about that. Account to Account transfers still cost $25. AND - the last name on both accounts MUST be the same (to try and prevent account selling).

      Does the new level 80 get any free mounts or mount training?

      Your friend gets all this immediately, he doesn't need to resub until his 7 days are up.

      Also, you should include that if your friend wants a 'fresh' level 80 he will need to make a lvl 1 on his account and relog.

      My wife had an account but she never played WoW. It was one that didn't have a Bnet even. Merged the account and sent a SoR. I will check tomorrow on what happens. I did see the sender does not get game time anymore which would have made it even a bigger no-brainer but I am still happy and will do at least 2 more so I can have new mounts on my 85's

      sis that with 2 of my co-workers accounts, yaay multiboxing 3 accs to 85 will bring me lots of cash.

      but the 1k goldlimit for transfers sucks tho!

      EDIT: and i got my mount around 1 hour after putting gamecards into the accs

      You seriously get 280% epic flying too? This deal is awesome. Blizzard has got really good at promotions that increase revenue with almost zero cost to them.

      Luckily I hat two inactive accounts. It is really strange to have a level 80 char with a /played time of 30 seconds. But now I have 2 new Crafting toons, which I don't have to level by my self.
