    They have revamped their scroll of resurrection system. Details are as follows:

    Eligibility & Limitations
    Who can be sent a Scroll of Resurrection?

    To be eligible to receive a Scroll of Resurrection, your friend must have previously subscribed to World of Warcraft for at least 30 days and their account must have become inactive on or before March 4th, 2012.

    If your friend's World of Warcraft account has been inactive since December 2009 (or longer), your friend must first associate their World of Warcraft account with a free Battle.net account before they can receive a Scroll of Resurrection. Tell your friend to see our Battle.net Account FAQ for information on creating a Battle.net account and merging their WoW account. After your friend has set up their account, you should be able to send them a Scroll of Resurrection normally.

    Can I resurrect one of my own World of Warcraft accounts?

    If you have at least one active World of Warcraft account, you can send your inactive accounts Scroll of Resurrection invitations.

    How long is the Scroll of Resurrection invitation good for once I send it out?

    Your friend has 30 days to accept the invitation. The offer will expire if not used within that time.

    Is there a limit on the number of Scroll of Resurrection invitations that I can send out?

    There is a limit of one Scroll of Resurrection invitation per day per World of Warcraft Account on both the web and in-game. This makes an effective limit of 2 Scroll of Resurrection invitations per day per account if you use both sending options. There is no limit on the number of lifetime Scroll of Resurrection invitations that an account can send.

    Can I invite someone who has never played before with a Scroll of Resurrection?

    Scroll of Resurrection can only be used on players who once had active World of Warcraft subscriptions. For a similar offer for friends who have never subscribed to World of Warcraft, please see the Recruit-A-Friend FAQ.

    Sending the Scroll of Resurrection

    What benefits are there to sending a Scroll of Resurrection?

    You will receive an exclusive mount when your friend who accepted the Scroll first renews their subscription and pays for 30 days of game time -- the Spectral Gryphon for Alliance characters or the Spectral Wind Rider for Horde characters.

    How do I redeem my mount once my friend subscribes?

    Visit your Account Management page and click on the Scroll of Resurrection option. Under the History/Status tab, you will see Claim Mount button when you are able to redeem the mount. Choose the realm and character on which you want to receive the mount and it will arrive in your character's mailbox.

    Note: The mount can only be redeemed on one character per Scroll.

    When do I receive my mount for resurrecting a friend?

    Your friend must accept your Scroll of Resurrection invitation and renew their subscription for you to qualify for the mount. In order to qualify for the mount, your friend must renew their subscription after accepting the Scroll, and pay for at least 30 days of game time.

    Can I earn multiple mounts on my account?

    Yes! This reward will be given to you for each friend who accepts your invitation and meets the re-subscription criteria.

    Can I track the invitations I send out?

    After your friend accepts, you will be able to view the status of the invitation on the History page in the Referrals & Rewards section of your Battle.net Account Management page.

    Who will receive the sender reward when several people send the same person Scrolls of Resurrection?

    Only the player whose invitation is accepted will receive the sender's reward. If the recipient gets several invitations, it will be up to them to choose which to accept. A recipient can accept a maximum of one Scroll of Resurrection per eligible World of Warcraft account.

    Accepting the Scroll of Resurrection

    What benefits are there for accepting a Scroll of Resurrection invitation?

    The Scroll's recipient immediately receives a FREE digital upgrade all the way to World of Warcraft: Cataclysm. Additionally, the Scroll's receiver can permanently boost one character to level 80 so that they can jump straight into the adventure for their 7 days of FREE game time!

    Note: The digital upgrade and level boost will only be available for scrolls sent during the 90-day promotion period. Players who accept a Scroll of Resurrection that was sent after the promotion period ends will still receive 7 days of FREE game time, but will not be eligible for the digital upgrade or level boost.

    I just accepted a Scroll of Resurrection. How do I level boost my character?

    Log in to your Battle.net Account and click on the resurrected license. Once you're on the Game Management page, click Claim Rewards and select the character to level along with their spec. The next time you log in, they'll be ready to adventure in a sundered Azeroth!

    How does the boost to level 80 work for the Scroll's recipient?

    After accepting the Scroll, the recipient can choose one character to boost to level 80. The character's spec will be chosen by the recipient prior to completing the level boost and the character will also be given appropriate talents under the chosen spec. The character will be placed in his or her faction's capital city and will be ready to adventure immediately. This means that the character will be granted all class skills and spells up to level 80, a flying mount and riding skill, and a green quality set of level- and spec-appropriate gear for leveling.

    Any gear that was on the character prior to the level boost will be mailed back to the character via in game mail.

    Hunter pets will not be given a spec, so level boosted Hunters will need to spec out their pets normally after logging in for the first time.

    Note: Active quests may be abandoned when a level boost is performed. If a quest is abandoned in this way, you will be able to pick it up normally from the NPC who originally gave you the quest.

    Can I only level boost one character? What happens if my main character is on a different realm or faction than the friend who invited me?


    If the character that was level boosted is on a different realm or faction than the character who sent the invitation, you will be eligible for a free Character Transfer and/or a free Faction Change to bring you to your friend's realm and faction.

    Note: Existing limitations apply for Faction Changes and Realm Transfers under the Scroll of Resurrection system. Please see the Faction Change and Realm Transfer FAQs for details. In addition, players on an RU server will not receive a free Realm Transfer if the friend who invited them is from an EU server.

    How many times can one person accept a Scroll of Resurrection?

    After March 5th, 2012, accounts are only able to accept one Scroll of Resurrection per eligible World of Warcraft account -- if your friend has already accepted an invitation after March 5th, they will not be able to accept another for the same World of Warcraft account, but may accept invitations for other eligible World of Warcraft accounts.

    Is there a way for me to boost a character to 80 without a Scroll of Resurrection?

    The ability to boost a character to 80 only comes when you accept a Scroll of Resurrection invitation.

    Some nice changes, the upgrade to Cata is probably the biggest one. Doubtful I will ever go back as I already had many great times with the game.

    The influx of nubs to high level content will be a disaster! oh wait, high level content is just as easy as low level content? huh well carry on.

    Because the new comers that have never done it before will know exactly what to do to gear up and jump straight into raiding current content.

    So basically, Blizzard is starting to feel the heat of losing subscribers, and is begging people to get their friends back to the game.

    That and add into the mix that Star Wars is doing something similar so they have to keep up with the competition.

    If you happen to know anybody that would send one that would be greatly appreciated too, I'd like to get in and play all weekend if possible :) I'm sure I'll keep playing so mount is guranteed for them.

    Sent you one, for anyone who doesn't know, the free server transfer will only allow you to transfer to the server where the person sent you the SOR from as far as I know.

    meh i made a thread about this the day it started up and everyone hijacked the ppl wanting them so my scrolls couldn't get sent. Wouldn't be so cheesed, but im close to 100 mounts and thought this a way to get a mount. apparently not.

    Agreed. Tight budgets, and very little evolution (say what you will about Cataclysm, it was good but not immensely revolutionary), have led to minor stagnation.

    Blizzard is run by smart people. 7 days, and the freebies associated make it easy for older players to get back into the mix. They have structured this so that getting back together with friends is easy, and they've given people enough time to taste the content without being able to sate their appetites. Dang smart move from them.

    Still not going to get into WoW. There is too much life to lead, and WoW drains that life far too quickly for my tastes. Best of luck for those people that go back. Hopefully you find a happy balance with WoW, I never could.

    go to battle.net, go to your wow account and click on it, down below go to Refferals section, click on Scroll of Resurrection. Once inside that up top you will see different tabs, one of them should be Received or something along those lines, click that tab and you should see my invite. Thats if you haven't gotten it by email yet, I didn't get an email after 30 hours, so I had to go there to get mine.
