    Blizzard has just released their new marketing for their recruit-a-friend program and this one is quite interesting.
    First of all you recruit a friend into WoW and if they pay for 60 days of subscription time (after their 30 days free) then you gain 30 days free WoW Gametime. That hasn't changed from the past.
    The cool thing is once per hour your and your new friend will be able to summon to each other to make it easier to play together. This is something I kind of wish they would add to most of your friends.
    What's new and interesting about this program is that when your friend joins, they will be "tied" to your account as a recruit. So when you and your friend group together for the first 90 days you bother will earn TRIPLE the experience as normal. Also whenever your friend earns two levels in the game, they can grant ANY of your characters (that are lower level than your friend's) a free level.
    Last but not least, once they pay for their 2 months, you get a new exclusive Zherva mount for your character to ride, that I thinkis pretty sweet.
    While I agree with the free game time, the summoning, and the new spiffy mount - I have some serious qualms about the triple experience and free levels and I've yet to see Blizzard's response on how they might deal with people abusing this new system. Although with the new system I'd expect some new speed records getting broken for the 1-70 mark.
