World of Warcraft discontinuing 'Scroll of Resurrection' referrals

The window for former World of Warcraft players to re-subscribe to the game for a special reward is about to close, for good. As of February 18, players will no longer be able to send out a Scroll of Resurrection to former subscribers, effectively closing this particular referral program that began almost two years ago.

Current WoW players that send out a Scroll of Resurrection and successfully bring a former player back into the subscription fold receives either a Spectral Gryphon for the Alliance or a Spectral Wind Rider for the Horde. Players that accept a Scroll of Resurrection receive an auto-boost to level 80 for one character and seven free days of game time. However, given that the upcoming Warlods of Draenor expansion will allow for an insta-boost to level 90 and that Blizzard may also be selling those insta-boosts a la carte, it may not be much of an incentive anymore.

Blizzard explains, "The time has come to bid adieu to the Scroll of Resurrection. It's served its divine purpose, but like most scrolls, it only has so many charges before it loses its magic and crumbles into ethereal dust. For those who'd still like a chance to use the scroll, you have until February 18 before players are no longer able to send invitations. For those who have an invitation outstanding, that’s still good for 30 days from the time it was sent, after which point the invitation will expire and the benefits can no longer be claimed."
