Official Scroll of Resurrection revamp details

This afternoon, we discovered the revamped Scroll of Resurrection system was being rolled out on live realms. The service didn't stay active long (and most likely wasn't meant to be active at all), so details were rare. However, this evening Blizzard has released all of the details of the system. The entire release is fairly lengthy, so we'll keep most of that behind the cut. However, here are the core goodies.

Scroll of Resurrection - Resurrected Soon!
Once your friend accepts your scroll and pays for at least 30 days of game, you unlock your choice of the following rewards:
  • A Free Spectral Gryphon for an Alliance character
  • Or a Free Spectral Wind Rider for a Horde character
And, to enable you and your friend to play together in Cataclysm's newest content, any friend who accepts your Scroll will also receive the following epic benefits:
  • A single character immediately boosted all the way to level 80 -- DING!
  • A FREE upgrade to Cataclysm -- regardless of your friend's original box level
  • An optional FREE character move -- to your realm and faction so you can play together
  • 7 FREE days of game time -- available immediately
A few other prerequisites apply -- such as a free upgrade to a account for players who haven't played since 2009 or earlier -- so be sure to check out the FAQ below for full eligibility details.

Do note that the official release notes that when this system goes live, the offer will only be available for a limited time. Head over to for the full release, or just click through the cut below.

Scroll of Resurrection revamp active, includes free level 80 character

Earlier today, we reported on the numerous fansites dropping hints about the return of ... something, and now we know that something is the Scroll of Resurrection revamp. The Scroll comes packed with a few new perks: a free upgrade to Cataclysm, a free transfer to your friend's server, and a free faction change to join your friend's team. Oh, and you may boost one of your characters to level 80. Just like that.

This is just one more way that Blizzard is aggressively attempting to reverse the subscriber bleed that only just recently came to a halt. Lowering the barrier to reentry for returning players will go a long way toward getting those people to check back in, especially if it means those players will get to see the other faction for the very first time. It could very well mean a brand new gaming experience for some of those returning players.

Patch 4.3: New spectral windrider and gryphon mounts

Two new mounts have appeared on the Korean version of the World of Warcraft community site that appear to be spectral versions of the windrider and gryphon flying mounts that already carry players across Azeroth.

We have no idea where they will be available or when, but if I had to take an educated guess, I would think they are patch 4.3 Darkmoon Island rewards of some kind. Take a look at the screenshots in our gallery.

Brace yourselves for what could be some of most exciting updates to the game recently with patch 4.3. Look at what's ahead: new item storage options, cross-realm raiding, cosmetic armor skinning and your chance to battle the mighty Deathwing -- from astride his back!
