Recruit-A-Friend (How to recruit yourself) Updated 8.2.5+

Blizzard recently relaunched an updated Recruit-A-Friend program. Sadly, previous rewards are no longer available, however there is a new reward that might interest pet collectors: Rikki!

Here is the process on how to recruit yourself to earn this pet.

It costs approximately $15.00 (cost of one month game time) to collect Rikki from the updated RAF system.

1. Log into the game, open your Social window.
2. Select the Recruit A Friend tab, and hit the recruitment button (lower left of the window).
3. A new window will pop up where you can generate a recruitment link.
  • Note: Link does not expire until a custom date noted underneath the link field. Each link can be used 4 times.
4. Copy and email this link to yourself.
  • Note: You can use the same email address that's already attached to your main account.
5. Clicking the link will take you to a page to either select one of your existing eligible accounts to "recruit", or Create New Game Account.
  • Note: Alt-accounts that are eligible for "recruitment" are accounts that are inactive and you haven't used in a long time (at least 2-3 years). You'll get a list of possible accounts to select or the option to make a new one.
6. After selecting either option, go to the Blizzard Shop and purchase one month game time.
  • Note: Doesn't have to be the subscription option, and it's easier to use individual game time. This can be purchased either with a credit card or Bnet balance (obtained from a WoW Token purchased with gold).
7. Apply it to your account (WoW1, WoW2, etc.) that you just "recruited".
  • Note: To make sure the game time is applied, you can check by either going to your Bnet launcher and viewing the recruited account (WoW1, WoW2, etc.). A timer should be displayed next to the Play button if that account has game time on it. Alternatively, you can go to Account Management online, select Game & Subscriptions, and see if the RAF'ed account is listed as "Active Account Status".
8. Log back onto your main account and Rikki should be waiting for you to claim in the Recruit A Friend tab of the Social window!


You should be able to claim Rikki immediately once eligible and he will be added directly to your Pet Journal. He's rare quality and S/B breed.

Side Note: Although Rikki was an instantaneous reward, there are reports that the additional RAF rewards aren't when using a single RAF account.

$42 (3 months subscription) OR
$15 (1 month game time) + Gold price of WoW Token will vary

It tells me "Sorry, you’re not eligible to add Promotion: Refer a Friend to your account."

But then I clicked "create new account" and it may have worked :)

Hello all,

So I was wondering that now that Recruit a Friend is going away are the pets and mounts going away too?
I still need 3 pets I think and just as I wanted to take a break from wow, Blizzard came with the news saying that Recruit-A-Friend Program Going On Hiatus Soon.

This means I wont get the pets anymore?

Uhhh :shock: :shock:
