Behold! The Recruit-A-Friend program has unleashed an all new reward mount—the swift and sleek Obsidian Nightwing. Unlike most other mounts, the Obsidian Nightwing is not a mount you summon, but rather a mount that you become, enabling you to take to the skies with a friend riding on your back. And who wouldn’t want to ride (or transform into) a winged panther?


As mentioned earlier, the previous reward mount, the X-53 Touring Rocket has now been retired from the Recruit-A-Friend program (but those who already earned the vintage rocket in the past will keep it going forward).

Other than the new Obsidian Nightwing, the Recruit-A-Friend program remains unchanged, so you can expect all the same epic benefits as before:

You Get:

  • A FREE Obsidian Nightwing mount for a single character - when your recruit pays for their second full month of game time
  • 30 days of FREE game time - when your recruit upgrades to a full version of World of Warcraft: Battle Chest and pays for their first month of game time.

Your Recruit Gets:

  • World of Warcraft: Starter Edition, enabling them to play FREE up to level 20

You AND Your Recruit Get:

  • Friend-to-friend summoning, making it easy to travel and adventure together
  • Bonus experience when grouped together and grantable levels so you can easily maintain a character to level up with your friend. 

For more details on the Recruit-A-Friend program, be sure to check out the full FAQ.  Otherwise you can start recruiting now and invite a friend to join you on your adventures in Azeroth
