I seem to have arrived before people whine that they should get their money back because they paid more 5 years ago. Let's please not whine about getting money back for buying a product the day of release, as opposed to waiting 5 years.

Not really. As of next patch every mount will be account wide.

Lol. Incoming cry fest by people claiming they should get their money back or get x number of free months because they paid more.

Nice sale. Hope to meet some newfriends from this.

I was on the PTR last night with this character. I was able to use my old rocket from RaF (the grey one) even though it's on my old rogue.

No, the rewards from the Recruit a Friend promotion are specific to the character that receives it. We have received word that the current plan is that these mounts will remain specific to a character and not be made account wide.

Why? What possible "special snowflake" bull!@#$ response could they come up with this time?


They haven't yet. Aside from saying "Yeah, except no" on an increasingly huge number of mounts, they haven't justified why they made the decisions that they've made for the feature.

No one appears to be talking about this in the thread.

You are the first person to bring it up.

He who smelled it dealt it. :p

Well, let's look at this from a logical point of view. The RAF and SOR are a means to drum up new business/accounts, and reactivate lapsed ones, which means they are an attempt to add more customers to their ranks. If the mounts go account wide, people are less likely to utilize the promotions, because the mount is, let's face it, one of the biggest draws.

It is, purely and simply, a business decision, and one I think is reasonable, given the original intent behind the promotions.

Awesome. Husband wants the mount and I want a second account so Yaaaaaaaaaaaay!
Dual Boxin Mages right now RAF style. Spent $5 for battle chest and $5 for WotLK on new account and paid for the first month. (RAF only maintains to lvl 80)

I now get a free month on my first account. Its a great way to go!

So here is what i paid
+$5
+$5
+$15 for first month
-$15 because i don't have to pay that later.
---------------------------------------------------------
Total: $10

Worth it to reduce leveling time by forever +1 day
