Recruit a Friend – How To Recruit Yourself for Rewards
The new Recruit A Friend system is now live and brings new rewards, including two mounts, one pet, a transmog set with a rucksack and more! In this guide we’re going to show you how to unlock all of these rewards by recruiting yourself.

If you want to get all the rewards then this month is the perfect time to do that, as new accounts can get a 50% discount on their first World of Warcraft subscription.

How To Recruit Yourself

To get all the 12 rewards from the new Recruit A Friend system, you will first need three active game accounts (World of Warcraft accounts) on your main Blizzard account.

You will use these three accounts to recruit several new Blizzard accounts and then purchase one month of game time on each of them via subscription.

Step By Step Guide

If you can create two World of Warcraft starter accounts on your main Blizzard account then follow this guide. If you cannot create any starter accounts on your main Blizzard account then you’ll have to use a slight variation of this guide, which you can find below this one.

Step 1. Generate a Recruit-A-Friend invite link on your WoW#1 account (which is on your main Blizzard account). Use this link to recruit two World of Warcraft accounts on the same Blizzard account. These accounts are basically your RAF1 and RAF2 accounts, however, for clarity, we’re going to refer to them as WoW#2 and WoW#3.

Step 2. Purchase one month of game time on your WoW#2 and WoW#3 accounts (which are on your main Blizzard account).

Step 3. Create 10 email accounts and name them something like “YourNameRAFNumber@email.com”. Throughout this guide we’re going to refer to these emails as RAF3, RAF4, … RAF12.

Step 4. Use the invite link from WoW#1 to recruit RAF3 and RAF4.

You will have to create two new Blizzard accounts and purchase one month of game time on them via subscription. Since these accounts are new, you can use the New Player Offer to save 50% on the first month. This will cost you $7.5/€6.5 per account.

Step 5. Generate a Recruit-A-Friend invite link on your WoW#2 account (your main Blizzard account) and use that link to recruit RAF5, RAF6, RAF7 and RAF8.

Once again, you will have to create four new Blizzard accounts and purchase one month of game time on them via subscription. Since these accounts are new, you can use the New Player Offer to save 50% on the first month. This will cost you $7.5/€6.5 per account.

Step 6. Generate a Recruit-A-Friend invite link on your WoW#3 account (your main Blizzard account) and use that link to recruit RAF9, RAF10, RAF11 and RAF12.

Once again, you will have to create four new Blizzard accounts and purchase one month of game time on them via subscription. Since these accounts are new, you can use the New Player Offer to save 50% on the first month. This will cost you $7.5/€6.5 per account.

The total amount of money you’re going to spend with this method is $105/€91. You will get all the Recruit A Friend rewards.

If You Cannot Create New Accounts

If you cannot create any starter accounts on your main Blizzard account then follow this guide.

Step 1. Purchase one month of game time on your WoW#2 and WoW#3 accounts (which are on your main Blizzard account).

Step 2. Create 12 email accounts and name them something like “YourNameRAFNumber@email.com” to easily keep track of these emails. Throughout this short guide we’re going to refer to these emails as RAF1, RAF2, … RAF12.

Step 3. Generate a Recruit-A-Friend invite link on your WoW#1 account (your main Blizzard account) and use that link to recruit RAF1, RAF2, RAF3 and RAF4.

Step 4. Generate a Recruit-A-Friend invite link on your WoW#2 account (your main Blizzard account) and use that link to recruit RAF5, RAF6, RAF7 and RAF8.

Step 5. Generate a Recruit-A-Friend invite link on your WoW#3 account (your main Blizzard account) and use that link to recruit RAF9, RAF10, RAF11 and RAF12.

Step 6. Purchase one month of game time on the 12 Recruit A Friend accounts via subscription. Since these accounts are new, you can use the New Player Offer to save 50% on the first month.

If you have to use this method, please note that you will pay an additional $15/€13 for game time on the last two Recruit A Friend accounts. That being said, the offer is still good, as you will get all the Recruit A Friend rewards at a great price!

Payments & Rewards Info

  • Please note that when you subscribe, the full amount of money will be put on hold on your card. Do not worry, as that is normal. After the transaction goes through, the amount of money shown on the transaction will be updated, and you will be charged for the discounted amount.
  • It can take up to three days to receive the rewards. In most cases, you will receive the rewards within minutes. However, they will only show up after you have logged in and out of the accounts.
  • If you don’t intend to play on the recruited accounts after the first month of game time has passed, don’t forget to cancel your subscription and/or remove your payment methods.
