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