Beginning in just a few days, players who participate in the Recruit-A-Friend program will receive a whole new reward for showing a friend the ropes in Azeroth: the X-53 Touring Rocket, a two-seater flying mount that automatically increases its speed as your mount skill improves (up to 310% speed if you already have a 310% mount). The X-53 will be replacing the current Zhevra mount reward, which is retiring from the Recruit-A-Friend business after a good run. If you’ve already claimed a Zhevra (or claim one prior to the change), you’ll be able to hang on to it, of course. We’ll have more details on the new Recruit-A-Friend mount once it becomes available.If you’ve claimed your Recruit-A-Friend gift and received the Zhevra you’ll need to refer a new friend (thus gaining a new reward to redeem and claim after this change) to also obtain the X-53 Touring Rocket.
If you have a reward waiting around you have not claimed it can be used to claim a Zhevra now, or you can wait and claim an X-53 after the change.
Update – I’ve looked online for more info on this, and it seems alot of people are actually saying they’d prefer to keep the Zhevra! I don’t believe it! I asked my wife and someone at work, and they said the same thing! What is wrong with these people?! Or maybe it’s just me who thinks that this is the most awesome multi-passenger-rocket-based-mount in the game. 😐
