There's a new splash screen on the WoW homepage, but instead of hinting at a new game
, it is instead showing off Blizzard's new Recruit-a-Friend benefits
. Looks like they found a place for that Zhevra mount
we heard about a while back -- whenever you recruit a friend into the game (by convincing them to create an account with your name as a reference and having them pay for at least two months of game time), you can choose one of your characters to nab a Zhevra mount. Additionally, you can summon referred friends to your character, and when questing together, you can pick up triple experience until level 60, for both quests and monsters that you kill together.
More details on Blizzard's support page. Just yesterday, we heard Mike Morhaime saying Blizzard was aiming to bring tons of people
into the game this holiday season, and it looks like the recruiting drive has started.
