New Recruit-a-Friend Mount Coming: Two-Seater Rocket!

(thanks to for the image!)

Word made its way around yesterday that people using the Recruit-a-Friend service to bring in new players to the game (or just sign up for additional accounts) will have a new perk on the way soon, in the form of a shiny new 2-seater rocket mount!

Bashiok says on the official forums:

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.

I’m a self-admitted unashamed mount fanatic, so this is great news to me – and while the Zhevra mount that everyone got in the past for signing up through Recruit-a-Friend was shiny as well, this is a bit more useful! I mean, after all, you can ride it alone AND you and your friend can head out into the wild and level together on it at the same time! How cool is that?
