Common Problems

Haven't received in-game bonuses, and I'm not sure how they work.

For information on how to link accounts, visit our Recruit A Friend article.

Friend Summoning

Linked players can summon each other once every 30 minutes if their characters are on the same realm and faction. To summon your friend to you, right-click their character portrait and select Summon Friend.

Note: Death Knight, Demon Hunter, Goblin, Worgen, and Pandaren characters cannot be summoned until they complete their starting experiences.

Experience and Reputation Boost

Linked players gain a 50% bonus to experience from kills and quests, and a 10% bonus to reputation from kills that grant reputation. To receive bonus experience and reputation, you must meet the following criteria:

  • Both characters must be in the same party and within 100 yards of each other.
  • Characters must be within 4 levels of each other and below level 45.
  • Monsters and quests cannot be trivial difficulty (gray) for either character.

Extra-Spacious Knapsack

The recruit is granted an Extra-Spacious Knapsack upon completing the Exile's Reach starting experience. The bag can be claimed from the mailbox.
