How does RaF work exactly?

Customer Support
I have two WoW accounts on my Single Battle.net account. Now, does RaF work between two different Battle.net accounts or two different WoW accounts?
Both work.

RAF only works on new accounts. So it will not work on an already existing account.
Ok, one more thing. Now the account I am posting on is a Battlechest account. My main one is cataclysm. Now can the Refer thing work on Upgrades?

For instance, I use my Cataclysm account to refer this Battlechest Account to upgrade, and then do said Upgrade, does it work?


No, as Amoracchia mentioned the Recruit a Friend promotion is used for new accounts only. The link cannot be applied to an older already existing account.

Check the FAQ link posted last year for answers to all of your questions.

I'd agree with Selenic, the FAQ provides a good deal of information on the promotion and should provide answers to those base questions. Specifically:

How long will I be linked to my recruit(s)?
The link between the veteran and recruit account will last for 90 days from the date that the recruited account is created. For the link to work properly, your recruit must create a new World of Warcraft account using the Starter Edition key in your invitation email.


Will the experience bonus apply to only one character? Are all characters linked to the account eligible to receive it?
Triple experience is only applied to the character that earned it. However, all characters below level 80 on both the veteran and recruit accounts are eligible to receive the experience bonus.


If you have additional questions feel free to create a new thread. I'm going to lock this one up given the original date it was created.
