Scroll of Resurrection – Resurrected Soon!

If you haven't heard here is the blue post

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
A few other prerequisites apply -- such as a free upgrade to a account for players who haven't played since 2009 or earlier -- so be sure to check out the FAQ below for full eligibility details.

So this is Blizzard's attempt to get players back to playing the game, and there is a lot of uproar about players who haven't left why they shouldn't get these rewards. Well one thing a few months back if you were a subscriber for 5+ years then you actually got a free copy of WoW. I know this because I got one. You could also say that getting a free 80 if you are already active i nthe game is laziness. This is for people that say haven't played in years and are behind. This goes hand in hand with the free Cata upgrade. The character move is the same thing. If you were away your guildies or friends could have moved to a more active server. You are being given this option as a way to get you back into playing and renewing your subscription. Lastly the 7 days of free game time was the thing that was always in the old Scroll of Resurrection.

You also are getting a free mount for getting people to come back on Blizzard's behalf just like you get a free mount when you recruit a new player via RAF. If  you haven't seen the mounts

So for all those people with the gimmie attitude about how because you have been loyal and deserve something because you haven't left. This is the type of thing that leads to washed out content, mounts being reissued, and so on and so forth.


  1. completely agree how about the satisfaction that Blizzard is making it easy for you to play with a friend again?

  2. I imagine these same people are irked they had to pay for the Burning Crusade as its own expansion...

  3. I think people just find anything to complain about because that is what makes them happy
