This is an awesome change, but I wish that I could purchase the benefits without getting a new account so I could use it for characters on accounts I actually care about. I understand that it's a recruitment tool first and foremost, but that doesn't stop me from wishing.

While you're right, that it IS first and foremost a recruiting tool, I think Blizzard should acknowledge players like us (which I wouldn't say is a small portion, to say the least) who have old, old accounts, or in some cases (like mine) have already done account shuffle in order to take advantage of it in the past. It benefited them then, they should allow it to benefit me now.

@Don - I am not completely sure if that is correct. Of the half-dozen or so friends I see with RaF (the 2-seater mount), they were all dual-box. One was just to the buy mount. So it is positioned as a recruiting tool and I am sure works for that and they (and players) hope it works. But my guess is the second account idea is bigger than folks think.

@Sally BowlsYou may have misinterpreted what I meant. I ended up shuffling old characters to a new account (years ago, during an RAF with my girlfriend), and it sucked to have to pay the extra money to power level a toon or two, and then get my toons no one account, so that I WOULDN'T have to pay for multiple accounts. I understand that for many, 2+ account has become something of the norm, but not for me. I consider it a massive waste of money.
