We know there are quite a few people out there who want to take advantage of the leveling bonus Recruit-a-Friend offers but have trouble doing so. Some people don't want to wait the required time before inviting friends to join them; others do not have friends to recruit at all. Some members of the community have even recruited themselves to bypass the current leveling rates. It's all quite a shame, but a solution is already here! In order to smooth out such issues and increase accessibility to our realms, the former Recruit-A-Friend bonus is now accessible universally in the form of an optional rate system.
Instead of the XP boost applying only to level 1-50 for those RAF players near each other, we now have optional leveling rates for all players. The available rates to choose from will be 0.5 (for players who like to role play, or take content at a slower pace), 1 (for players who like things the way they always have been), 2 (for players who want to cut some corners), and 3 (for players who just want to get to the end-game raiding and PvP!). You can pick one rate and stick to it all the way up, or change rates at will. Rates will be set immediately, on a player by player basis, using the following command: .settings rates <XP rate>
For those familiar, this should be similar to enabling trasmogging.
Ress-A-Friend: December 22nd
We know a lot of you have either brought a friend here and failed to keep them around, or made friends here who, for one reason or another, have left. In order to reward players using word of mouth to bring back old players, we will be adding a Resurrect-A-Friend system alongside the updated Recruit-a-Friend system and optional rate system. Ress-A-Friend will only work on players who have been inactive for 6+ months. If you have such a friend you'd like to resurrect, you will be able to earn some IBT and maybe even bonus experience for the two of you after playing a battleground, dungeon, raid, or arena together. Plans for this are still in development but are expected to release on December 22nd.
