Ready to make memories with your friends and share fantastic adventures with them across Azeroth and beyond? The new Recruit A Friend program is the perfect way to show them the ropes.

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
Recruit A Friend Rewards
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.

Same, no one is interested in playing it or they already did before and left, some playing classic. Also, this new recruitment requires way more commitment in order to get these rewards, can't have someone simply subbing and then quitting.

Its the same for many. You have more friends that already quit and finding new players for this game is nearly impossible too I would say. Might as well create a new account and recruit myself so I get the camel.

They're not, at least going by a reddit post, apparently was cleared up about 6 weeks ago but can't find a source or remember that...

Can't find the source but I recall reading that ye. it's ticking each month and you need to have your own sub active to get the reward else you loose it (the old one you could have your own sub cancelled and still get the loots.

But all in all it is a better system for actually recruiting peoples (but less interesting if you want to get the loot by yourself).

This is me when any multiplayer-focused game comes out. Except my problem is I can't get anyone that actually plays games to play with me because "their babies will die if they don't get food" and similar weak excuses.

indeed, it makes sense, just who has anyone to recruit now? With Classic well underway, anyone I knew who'd come back, is back, and that would have been a good time to get new people in too since you'd both start at 1, and they'd get retail too...

 

That and as with others, I don't have many friends outside of WoW xD

      Regardless of when it hits, what we've started calling Schrodinger's pre-patch will be the shortest in WoW's history. Battle for Azeroth has held that honor up until a short while ago, but even if we see the patch arrive next week, it will still only last for 3 weeks aka 21 days, compared to BfA's 4 weeks/30 days. Perhaps it makes sense that the longest expansion in WoW history is followed by the shortest pre-patch, but with 9.0.1 bringing so much content with it, it is a shame it turned out this way.
      Expansion Pre-Patch Release Date Expansion Release Date Pre-Patch Duration (Days) The Burning Crusade December 5, 2006 January 16, 2007 42 Wrath of the Lich King October 14, 2008 November 13, 2008 30
      Cataclysm October 12, 2010 December 7, 2010 56 Mists of Pandaria August 28, 2012 September 25, 2012 28 Warlords of Draenor October 14, 2014 November 13, 2014 30 Legion July 19, 2016 August 30, 2016 42 Battle for Azeroth July 17, 2018 August 14, 2018 28 Shadowlands ??? October 27, 2020 ??? We can also compare Battle for Azeroth's pre-patch and Shadowlands' in terms of major features, to see what players could do in the respective pre-patches:
      BfA:
      3-week long story campaign Stat squish Class changes (incorporating artifact traits into the baseline and more) PvP talent changes Profession changes, First Aid removed War Mode Legacy loot mode Small number of character customization options (BE eyes, Orc posture) Shadowlands:
      Scourge invasion event 2-week long story campaign Level squish Class changes New player experience (Exile's Reach) Chromie Time leveling Newcomer chat and guides Allied Races no longer require exalted Many new cosmetic options Character creation screen updated Heirlooms changed Barber shop gender change Legion Artifact transmog non-spec specific Aside from the world quests and other event-related activities, the main draw of the the Shadowlands pre-patch is the leveling, as it's significantly faster than it's been so far (even with the currently active XP buff taken into consideration), and many players are eager to get some characters ready for the expansion launch.
      We're still hoping for the Shadowlands pre-patch to hit next week, putting it at 3 weeks duration, but we've already started preparing for the worst, aka a 2-week run time, which we recently discussed.

      An overview of all Covenant Armor Sets coming in the Shadowlands.
      Blizzard added set bonuses to Covenant Armor Sets in the latest Beta Build 36086.
      All four Covenant sets share the same 3-piece bonus that focuses on out-of-combat regeneration.
      The 5 and 8-piece bonuses focus on Covenant Signature Abilities.
      Kyrian Covenant Set Bonuses
      Soul Replenishment (3-piece): Increases your out-of-combat regeneration in outdoor Shadowland zones. While in your Covenant's realm, the regeneration amount is increased. Serenity Blessing (5-piece): Phial of Serenity grants 70 Primary Stat for 30 sec. Removing a disease, poison, curse, or bleed increases the amount granted by 50%. Aspirant's Touch (8-piece): Your spells and abilities have a chance to cause your target to erupt in a blinding light dealing 159 Arcane damage or healing an ally for 195 health. Necrolord Covenant Set Bonuses
      Soul Replenishment (3-piece): Increases your out-of-combat regeneration in outdoor Shadowland zones. While in your Covenant's realm, the regeneration amount is increased. Flesh Infusion (5-piece): While Fleshcraft is active your Primary Stat is increased by 100. Victors Advantage (8-piece): Killing an enemy reduces Fleshcrafts cooldown by 3 sec and your Critical Strike rating is increased by 35, stacking 5 times. Night Fae Covenant Set Bonuses
      Soul Replenishment (3-piece): Increases your out-of-combat regeneration in outdoor Shadowland zones. While in your Covenant's realm, the regeneration amount is increased. Fae Swiftness (5-piece): Soulshape's duration is increased by 4 sec and Flicker grants a short burst of speed while in outdoor Shadowland zones. Guardian of the Fae - Your spells and abilities have a low chance to summon a Fae Guardian to protect you for 30 sec, increasing your pri by 60 while alive and periodically healing 5 nearby allies for 450 health. Venthyr Covenant Set Bonuses
      Soul Replenishment (3-piece): Increases your out-of-combat regeneration in outdoor Shadowland zones. While in your Covenant's realm, the regeneration amount is increased. Penance Brand (5-piece): Your spells and abilities have a chance to inflict Penance Brand on your target dealing 660 Shadow damage over 6 sec and healing you for the same amount. One With Shadows (8-piece): While Door of Shadows is off cooldown your pri is increased by 80 and its range is increased by 5 while in outdoor Shadowland zones.

      Soulshape, the Night Fae Covenant Signature Ability, currently behaves inconsistently, and the design intention for it is to work similarly to a Shaman's Ghost Wolf or a Druid's Travel Form when it comes to other abilities canceling the form.
      (Source)
      We’ve seen some questions recently about inconsistencies with abilities that cancel Soulshape and abilities that are usable during Soulshape without canceling it. This is a work in progress.
      The design intention here is that Soulshape should behave similarly to a Shaman’s Ghost Wolf or a Druid’s Travel Form – all activated abilities should cancel Soulshape, with a few exceptions. When work is complete, Shaman or Druid abilities that do not already cancel Ghost Wolf / Travel Form should not cancel Soulshape. Another example to follow is Glide for Demon Hunters.
      As of this latest build of the Shadowlands Beta, Death Knight, Demon Hunter, and Druid abilities are set up appropriately, with the exception of some PvP talents. We’ll make this behavior consistent across the remaining classes in future builds.
      I noticed that Howling Blast did not cancel Soulshape.
      This is a bug that we’re fixing as soon as possible.
      Also a bug: Death Knights might see a strange error message (“Must be in Undead”) if you try to cast abilities in Soulshape right now. We’ll get that fixed.

      Blizzard made some changes to the item level of Soulbind Conduits in the most recent Shadowlands Beta build, and it seems they won't be hard-capped at Rank 5, as we first thought.
      The item level of Soulbind Conduits increases by 13 with each rank.
      Conduit Rank Beta Build 35978 (Old) Beta Build 36086 (New) 1 155 145 2 165 158 3 180 171 4 195 184 5 210 200 6 300 213 7 300 226 8 300 239 9 300 252 10 300 265 11 300 278 12 300 291 13 300 304 14 300 317 15 300 330 It seems the item level of Conduits will be tied to raid difficulties and Mythic Keystone levels. You will also be able to add Conduits to your collection and upgrade existing ones by purchasing  Manifest Aethershunt, a consumable item from Ve'nari in the Maw.

      Here is the proof of how incredibly buggy PvP scaling in WoW can be. We have a Level 20 twink with a 10,000% damage boost annihilating 120s.
      In his latest video, Rextroy takes PvP scaling to a whole new level. A low-level 20 Frost Mage has an 8,000% damage boost against max-level chars, which causes their Flurry and Frostbolt to deal 4,900 damage on Level 120 enemies.
      The 8,000% boost can be amplified by another 1,000% with the help of Stand As One or Collective Wil. 
      Finally, the Mr. Munchykins trinket grants the mage 990 Haste, which is about 300% at Level 20, resulting in Flurry casts on every global.
      The method leads to around 200K damage to players at Level 120.
