The X-53 Touring Rocket is now available! You can view the official announcement here:

Q u o t e:
Have a friend who's interested in adventuring alongside you in Azeroth? Starting today, veteran players who bring a friend into the game through our Recruit-A-Friend program will be able to earn a brand-new X-53 Touring Rocket, World of Warcraft's first ever two-person flying mount.

Recruit-A-Friend participants also gain access to several other in-game benefits. From the moment your recruited friend creates a character and starts playing, you'll both earn triple experience when grouped together and can summon each other from anywhere in the world. Also, for every two levels of experience your friend earns, he or she can grant one level of experience to one of your characters. In addition, the recruiting player can receive 30 days of free game time if the recruited friend upgrades to the retail version of World of Warcraft and purchases a subscription.

We've compiled a number of helpful links related to the Recruit-A-Friend program and the X-53 Touring Rocket below. As with any of our services, we strongly recommend that you review our Recruit-A-Friend FAQ and related documentation before you begin:

Important notes:

  • The X-53 Touring Rocket is only available through the Recruit-A-Friend program. Please beware of emails, whispers, and in-game mails that offer "free mounts" and other prizes, as these can be scams intended to obtain your login information. If you wish to refer an account and potentially receive the X-53 Touring Rocket, please visit http://www.worldofwarcraft.com/account/recruit-a-friend.html to begin the Recruit-A-Friend process.

  • Only one mount may be claimed per qualifying Recruit-A-Friend referral. This means that if you've already claimed a Zhevra on a character you'll need to refer a new friend (thus gaining a new reward to claim) to also obtain the X-53 Touring Rocket.

  • Even if you already own a Zhevra, you can still claim the X-53 Touring Rocket once you qualify for it. Both of these mounts can be owned by the same character at the same time.

  • Pre-paid game cards and pre-paid game time codes will instantly apply game time to an account. Therefore, if a veteran account would like to quickly qualify for the in-game mount reward, the recruit account can opt to subscribe using pre-paid game cards or codes. Game cards are available at many local retailers, and game codes may be purchased on the Blizzard Store here: http://us.blizzard.com/store/details.xml?id=110000004

  • Veteran accounts will remain eligible for Recruit-A-Friend subscription rewards even after the 90-day account link expires. This means if an inactive recruit account resubscribes and then purchases a total of 60 days of game play, the veteran account will still be able to redeem the 30-day game credit and in-game mount. Please note that this will apply for accounts linked after 08/05/2008.

  • Recruit-A-Friend mount swaps will not be provided by In-Game Support or Billing & Account Services.
