Did anyone get this email? is Obsidian Nightwing is the new RAF mount? Dont know if its real.

To claim your reward, log in to your Battle.net account, select the World of Warcraft account you used to refer your friend, and then select Referrals & Rewards > Recruit a Friend. Alternately, copy and paste this URL into your browser: xxx

Anyone also know if the new Account Bind mount this is cross Realm? or just Server? Like I have a Horde on Medivh but if I have a Account bind mount (no faction related.. eg Green proto drake) on my Horde will the Alliance toon get it too?

Do you actually have a Touring Rocket you haven't claimed? If you do, sounds legit. If you don't, why the Hell are you even asking? The answer is pretty obvious. Plus, the email specifically tells you to copy the URLs into your browser instead of clicking their links. That's something Blizzard always does.

Dude, remove the links just in case.

The links are all legitimate. Only a really bad phishing attempt would actually have fake URLs shown. Any good one would hide the real URL behind a seemingly legitimate line of text, ie, having a hyperlink that leads to loltotallyawowscam.net, but have it appear as battle.net/wow/en/support or whatever in the email itself.

I have 2 RAF not claimed, just didn't see any news in wowhead/mmo-champion/wowinsider/offical page about Obsidian Nightwing being new RAF. so didn't know if it was real.

Well, you seem to know that there's a WoW website.

You should also know that WoW posts any RAF promotions and new mounts on the front page.

So using this logic, you would know that this is a scam.

Thanks just didn't want to do anything dumb, because I'm still waiting on what the new mount is before I use the 2 RAF I still have.

I got this email, it is the new RAF mount. Hadn't realized I still had a touring rocket from the current RAF program.

If you get an email don't click on any links. Go log into your battle.net account and see. Even if this is the new RAF mount they haven't announced it on the site, so you're probably being scammed.

Yes, I JUST got that email. Wanted to make sure I was going to be able to receive the new mount and not have my reward stripped away from me when it reset.

The question right now I think is... Is it real or not? (not the mount, but whats the email points out) guess we can find out in 5 days, I'm sure Blizzard will announce it.. if its true within 4 day.

I just had my wife check and she got the e-mail too. Thanks OP, she really does not check that account as it is just for WoW.

You mean http://us.battle.net/wow/en/blog/5203164 doesn't actually exist, and I'm just imagining it's existence?

Just got this email as well, checked bnet and sure enough I had mounts I somehow forgot to claim from a few years back. It sort of makes it sound like we'll get the mount for having done RAF in the past as well?

Just received this email but even if it looks like scam isn't, i logged (in a different browser on the official battle.net) and have 2 rewards so it's legit, the new mount too look i saw it long before because i've MoP beta.http://www.wowhead.com/item=83086#comments
My question would be, if i don't claim these in the deadline.. they will be valid for the new? or just a reset?

Got this e-mail as well. I have one rocket left to claim, but since I have it already, I was keeping the extra one for the next time they change the RAF mount, and the time has come!

Referred a friend months ago, got this e-mail and I logged into my account but I don't see a link to 'referral-rewards.' I'm not stupid enough to copy and post links. Looks like a clever spam heist.
