New Refer-A-Friend system revealed

Obsidian Nightwing now available as ReferAFriend mount
In the WoWSource interview published today, Production Director J Allen Brack, Game Producer Tom Chilton and Lead Encounter Designer Ion Hazzikostas talk about the new Refer-A-Friend system. They talk about the current system, how it works with the battle.net site, and how that's going to change. The key points of the new system are as follows:
  • Completely in-game, no web involvement
  • Reward is a token
  • Token can be exchanged for new mounts, new pets, existing mounts, or existing pets
  • It seems like you might be able to get the Zhevra or the X-53 Touring Rocket, as legacy items
For me, this is a fantastic change. The current system is incredibly tricky to use, and if you don't do it just right, accounts aren't linked, and don't get the bonuses. What's more, there's little incentive to refer more friends if you have the current mount already. Sure there are grantable levels, and the 300% XP, but the new system's offering more mounts and pets is a great idea. I really like the token system, and the flexibility it offers!
