WoW Dragonflight Recruit A Friend (RAF) New Rewards & Start Date

The World of Warcraft (WoW) Recruit a Friend (RAF) program has been available for a long time, but with WoW Dragonflight, Blizzard has improved the program and is releasing some fresh new rewards for players to earn.

This article explains everything you need to know about the new Recruit a Friend program in WoW Dragonflight, from the shiny new rewards to the start date and more.

Update on 12 May 2023: We've updated this article with the latest WoW Dragonflight RAF program details.

New WoW RAF Program Start Date

First off, Blizzard explains what the new Recruit a Friend program in WoW Dragonflight is all about, stating:

The Recruit A Friend (RAF) program retains fan-favorite features, and it introduces a bounty of brand-new rewards. Like the previous program, you can teleport to each other with Friend-to-Friend Summoning (which works on a 30-minute cooldown)—because Azeroth is best experienced with friends at your side.

The new RAF program for WoW Dragonflight starts on 21 March 2023.

WoW Dragonflight Recruit a Friend Rewards: How To Get

Players can earn the latest Goblin tech as rewards for the new Recruit a Friend program in WoW Dragonflight. As you can see from the image above, you can recruit new players via the in-game system. You can also recruit returning players who have not had active game time on their WoW account for the past two years.

You can recruit up to 10 friends, earning great new rewards and even game time. Blizzard explains:

Recruit four players every 30 days, and each time one of your recruits adds game time to their account, you’ll earn progress toward a new reward. The more friends you invite, the faster you’ll earn the rewards, as one friend adding multiple months of game time earns the same rewards as multiple friends adding one month of game time each.

If you still have active recruits on the previous Recruit A Friend reward track, you will continue to earn those rewards as long as your recruits stay subscribed. If for any reason, your recruits lapse for a month or more and then return, they will begin awarding credit for the current reward track.

Below, you can check out the list of new RAF rewards in WoW Dragonflight, alongside the months required to get them.

  • Volatile Self-Driving Toolbox Pet - 1 Month    
  • Shredderizing Glove Cosmetic Item – 2 Months    
  • Sappy Buddy Cosmetic Item – 3 Months
  • 30 Days Game Time – 4 Months   
  • S.C.A.N.N.E.R. Mk3 Cosmetic Item – 5 Months    
  • Rocket Shredder 9001 Mount – 6 Months

As additional rewards after you hit the six-month reward, WoW Dragonflight players get 30 days of game time for every three (3) months recruits are subscribed, up to a total of 12 months per recruit. That's a whole lot of free game time. It is important to note that recruiters need to have an active WoW subscription.

Lastly, the free game time earned through the WoW Dragonflight RAF program provides players access to both World of Warcraft and WoW Classic titles. The in-game rewards, however, are not available in WoW Classic titles.
