Ready to make memories with your friends and share magical adventures with them across Azeroth and beyond? The Recruit A Friend program is perfect for showing them the ropes. Starting on March 21, earn the latest goblin tech with a shorter reward cadence when you recruit new players or returning players in good standing who have not had active game time on their account for the past two years.

The Recruit A Friend (RAF) program retains fan-favorite features, and it introduces a bounty of brand-new rewards. Like the previous program, you can teleport to each other with Friend-to-Friend Summoning (which works on a 30-minute cooldown)—because Azeroth is best experienced with friends at your side.

More Recruits, More Rewards

The Recruit A Friend program allows you to be linked with up to 10 friends and earn 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. Recruit four players every 30 days, and 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!*

Volatile Self-Driving Toolbox Pet - 1 Month Shredderizing Glove Cosmetic Item – 2 Months Sappy Buddy Cosmetic Item – 3 Months
30 Days Game Time – 4 Months S.C.A.N.N.E.R. Mk3 Cosmetic Item – 5 Months Rocket Shredder 9001 Mount – 6 Months
Recruit A Friend Rewards
Rewards shown from left to right: S.C.A.N.N.E.R. Mk3, Rocket Shredder 9001. Not pictured – Volatile Self-Driving Toolbox Pet, Shredderizing Glove Cosmetic Item, Sappy Buddy Cosmetic Item..
Volatile Self-Driving Toolbox—Teaches you how to summon and dismiss this companion.
Shredderizing Glove—Cosmetic fist weapon not recommended for those whose love language is physical touch.
Sappy Buddy—A cosmetic buddy that goes where you go; be very wary of making them emotional.
S.C.A.N.N.E.R. Mk3—You won’t just be cool with the Scanning Contraption Armed with Nightsight, Neuro-reading, and Encasing Reticle, you’ll look cool too.
Rocket Shredder 9001—Way better than 9000, by one. Teaches you how to summon this mount. This mount changes depending on your Riding skill and location.

Game Time

Every 3 months after your 6-month reward, you’ll be rewarded with 30 days of game time.

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. 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

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 not available in World of Warcraft® Classic titles. Free game time earned through Recruit A Friend provides access to both World of Warcraft and WoW Classic titles.

Still can't farm this "friend" currency, so this feature is no use! Does it mean old stuff will go away? Perhaps it could go to trading post?

      Blizzard has added a completely new category to the Great Vault in the War Within. Find out more about the updated requirements!
      While we can't bring up the UI on the Alpha, based on datamining, we were able to figure out that the PvP row has been completely removed and replaced with a World row, as indicated by the new global strings for Build 54675.
      GREAT_VAULT_REWARDS_WORLD_INCOMPLETE - Complete %1$d more |4delve:delves; or |4world activity:world activities; this week to unlock a Great Vault reward.

New World Category
      As you can see, you can complete delves or other world activities to unlock items in the new World row, which is cool for players who do not want to do Mythic+ or Raids.
      To unlock items in the new row, you must complete 3/6/12 delves or world activities. Completing world activities will be equivalent to completing a certain Tier of delves.
      To increase the reward's item level, you must complete Delves at a higher tier. We have 9 tiers in total with the last two being only for bragging rights (awarding cosmetics).
      Great Vault Requirements in the War Within
      Here are the updated requirements for the weekly chest in the War Within.
      Defeat 2/4/6 raid bosses to unlock slots 1-3. Dungeons

      Struggling in delves? The new Determination buff has got your back in the War Within.
      If you’ve ever done LFR, you’re probably familiar with the Determination buff. When your raid wipes, your damage, healing, and health get a boost. Now, this same mechanic is coming to delves, which is surprising given that delves can be tackled solo or in a group.
      Delver's Determination is a buff you receive when you die too much in delves. It increases your damage, healing, and health by 5%, stacking. Every delve ends with a boss fight. If you’re finding the final boss too challenging, don’t worry. You’ll gain a stack of Delver's Determination every time the boss defeats you, giving you a better chance to succeed on your next try.
