What in-game benefits do we get while the accounts we play are linked?
1. Characters on both accounts can summon each other once per hour.
2. While adventuring with your linked friend/family member, you will each gain triple experience.
3. For every two levels the new player earns, the new player can grant one free level-up to a lower-level character played by the veteran player.
How long will I be linked to my recruit?
The link between the accounts will last for 90 days from the date that your recruit creates an account. Remember that for the link to work properly, your recruit must create a new World of Warcraft account using the 10-day trial key in your invitation email.
Do I always gain triple experience while I am linked to my recruit?
No, only when you are partied with a character on the linked account and both players are present when slaying the monster or completing the quest. Also, if the two characters are not the same level, only the lower-level character is given the experience boost.
Is quest experience tripled too?
Yes, but only if the quest was not trivial (gray difficulty) for either character.
It doesn't even have to be a paid account. Just has to use your referrer key. Here's how it goes: you refer yourself an account. Create new chars on current account and new account and dual box. Get TRIPLE EXPERIENCE on BOTH chars starting from the first second, even if you haven't paid. If you DO register the new account, your main account gets a free month, which basically means it only cost you $5 extra for all this. ON TOP OF THAT, if you get to 60 on these new chars, you can basically insta-create ANOTHER character at level 30.
Does this qualify for "Jump the Shark"? This just throws more fuel on the fire in favor of getting rid of the PvE->PvP transfer restriction. 1->70 in 5 days played?
