Common Problems

  • I want my World of Warcraft account to be unlinked from the person who recruited me
  • I would like to have my Recruit a Friend link removed

I am the recruiter

If you are the recruiter, you can break any of your recruited account links from the in-game interface in the Friends List (default hotkey O):

  1. Right click your recruit.
  2. Chose Remove Recruit.
  3. Confirm that you want to break the account link.

After the account link is broken, your friend’s World of Warcraft account cannot be linked with yours again until it has been inactive for 24 months.

I am the recruit

If you are the recruit, you can remove your recruiter from your Friends List, but you cannot break the Recruit a Friend link.

If you wish to break the link, you can contact us. However, if the reason is that you wish to be linked to a different friend, please note that you can only accept another Recruit a Friend link if you added your game time less than a week ago. Blizzard Customer Support cannot link you to a different friend.
