The new RAF program relaunched today with many new rewards! Instead of having one mount as a reward, players can choose between all of the RAF mounts, including those that have been removed for years, as well as some pets that were only obtainable in Asia. There's also the new  Emerald Hippogryph!

Recruit A Friend FAQ and Videos

The Recruit A Friend program is back and better than ever! Now you can choose from 8 different mount and pet rewards—including the brand-new Emerald Hippogryph—and enjoy leveling benefits all the way to level 85.


The upgraded Recruit A Friend allows you to email friends and family members Starter Edition activation keys for World of Warcraft from directly within the game. To get started, simply open up your in-game Friends List and click the new Recruit A Friend button.


A Treasure Trove of Rewards


Similar to the old system, after a recruited friend purchases 1 month of World of Warcraft game time, the veteran player (aka the recruiter) will get 1 month of free World of Warcraft game time. In addition, approximately one week after a recruit successfully purchases two months of game time, the veteran player will be able to select one of the following epic pet and mount rewards to permanently add to their collection. Recruit enough friends, and you’ll eventually be able to snag them all:


Emerald Hippogryph
Heart of the Nightwing
X-53 Touring Rocket
Swift Zhevra
Golden Pig
Silver Pig
Jade Tiger
Zipao Tiger

In-Game Benefits



To help you and your recruit take on the challenges of Azeroth together, players who participate in the Recruit A Friend program will enjoy the following in-game benefits for up to 90 days:


  • Recruit and veteran characters can summon one another to each other's locations.
  • While adventuring with your linked friend or family member, you will each gain triple experience while partied up to level 85, as long as your characters are within 4 levels of each other.
  • For every two levels the recruit's characters earn, one grantable level is gained. Recruit characters may then grant these levels to the veteran player's character as long as the character is lower in level than the level-granting character.

FAQ


Q: I sent a request to a friend but they didn’t get it—what now?
A: You can attempt to send another one. Ensure you have their correct email address, and let your friend know to check their Spam/Junk mail folders, as their email service could be filtering the invitation.


Q: How long are Recruit A Friend invitations valid?
A: Recruit A Friend invitations are valid for 7 days. If you haven’t received a response from your friend within that time, you’ll need to send another invitation.


Q: My friend just started playing. Can I still recruit them even if they already made an account?
A: Yes, with the new system you can recruit players who have World of Warcraft accounts that are less than 30 days old. Simply use the standard Recruit A Friend process. When your friend receives the email, clicking the link will bind your accounts for Recruit A Friend rewards and benefits (as long as the potential recruit’s account is still 30 days old or less).


Q: I’ve recruited someone already—can I do it again?
A: Yes! You can recruit as many people as you like, and with the new reward system you’ll have a variety of mount and pet rewards to choose from when each of your recruited friends purchases two months of game time.


Q: Can I get every Recruit A Friend pet and mount?
A: Yes. If enough friends accept the Recruit A Friend request from you and pay for two months of game time, you’ll be able to receive all of the rewards.


Q: I received a Recruit A Friend reward from the old system, but didn’t claim it. Will it still work?
A: Yes. You will receive a credit for the old mount reward if you didn’t redeem it.


Q: I sent or received a Recruit A Friend request invitation from the previous system, but it hasn’t been accepted yet. Is it still good?
A: No, you’ll need to send or receive a new invitation through the updated Recruit A Friend system.

Recruit A Friend is a referral system that allows you to invite friends to play World of Warcraft and receive exclusive in-game benefits when you play together. If your friend accepts your referral, their new Starter Edition game account will be linked to yours, which qualifies characters on both accounts for Recruit A Friend benefits, including increased experience, character summoning, and level granting.


Every time a newly recruited friend buys their first months of game time, the veteran player who recruited them will get additional rewards:

One month of game timeOne month of free game time
Two months of game timeOne of eight epic mounts or pets (their choice)
Note: The veteran player’s mount options include the new Emerald Hippogryph mount and past Recruit A Friend mounts.

How to Recruit A Friend

To recruit a friend who does not have a World of Warcraft account or whose World of Warcraft account is fewer than 30 days old, follow the steps below:


  1. Log in to World of Warcraft on the character you want to play with your friend. Your recruit will be directed to join that character’s faction and realm.
  2. Open your Friends List and click the Recruit A Friend icon in the upper-right corner.
  3. Enter your friend's email address and send the email invitation, which will be valid for seven days from the time it is sent.
  4. The link between your accounts will be created as soon as your friend accepts your email invitation and activates their Starter Edition. The link will last for 90 days.

If your friend does not receive the email, have them check their spam or junk folder and their email filters.


Recruit A Friend will only work with World of Warcraft accounts referred and created after Nov. 12, 2013. If you want to invite a friend back to the game, use Scroll of Resurrection.

In-Game Benefits

Players whose accounts are linked with Recruit A Friend will enjoy the following in-game benefits while the Recruit A Friend link is active:


  • Recruit and veteran characters can summon one another to each other's locations.
  • While adventuring together in a party, you will each gain triple experience up to level 85, as long as your characters are within 4 levels of each other.
  • For every two levels the recruit's characters earn, one grantable level is gained. Recruit characters may then grant these levels to the veteran player's character as long as the character is lower in level than the level-granting character.

Recruit A Friend rewards are only available for the 90-day link period after the recruit's World of Warcraft account activation. After 90 days pass, Recruit A Friend benefits will become unavailable and any unused level grants will be lost.

Friend Summoning

Linked players can summon each other once every 30 minutes, as long as they are on the same realm and faction and the player summoned is under level 85.





Note: Pandaren characters who have not yet chosen a faction cannot be summoned by Horde or Alliance characters. They must first complete the Wandering Isle zone.





To summon your friend to you, right-click their character portrait and select Summon Friend. You can also use the friends list by adding the target as a character friend.

Experience and Reputation Boost

Linked players who meet the following conditions receive triple experience from kills and quests and 10% bonus reputation from kills that already grant reputation:





  • Both characters must be in the same party and within 100 yards of each other.
  • Characters must be within 4 levels of each other and below level 85.
  • The monsters and quests cannot be marked as gray difficulty for either character.
Level Granting

For every two levels a recruit player gains, they can grant one level to a character on the original player's World of Warcraft account.





The recruit must log in to the character with grantable levels, right-click the friend's character portrait, and select Grant A Level. The Grant A Level menu item will only appear when:





  • The characters are in a party on the same realm and faction.
  • The characters are within 100 yards of each other.
  • The character granting the level is higher level than the character receiving the level.
  • The character receiving the level is level 84 or lower.
  • The character receiving the level has not disabled experience gain.




Note: All grantable levels must be used before the 90-day Recruit A Friend link expires. Unclaimed levels are not moved during a character copy or transfer. Be sure to use them before you transfer.

Game Time, In-Game Mounts, and Pets

About one week after a recruit purchases one month of game time, the veteran player will be granted one free month of game time automatically. Veteran players can get more than one month of free game time for recruiting multiple people.


About one week after a recruit purchases two months of game time, the veteran player can select one of eight epic pet or mount rewards to add to their collection. To claim an earned reward, follow these steps:





  1. Log in to World of Warcraft. If you’re eligible to claim a mount or pet, you’ll see a notification that you’ve earned a Recruit A Friend Reward.
  2. Open your Friends List and click the Recruit A Friend button in the upper-right corner.
  3. Choose one mount or pet and click Claim Reward to add it to your account-wide collection.




Note: Credit card subscriptions only bill once the account has used up all available game time (including free time from the promotion).

Still having trouble?

If your friend created a World of Warcraft account fewer than 30 days ago, you can still link your accounts with Recruit A Friend! Follow the instructions on the Recruit A Friend article to invite your friend to play with you.
