I recently sent a Scroll of Resurrection out to one of my old guildies and he accepted.

The Scroll of Resurrection allows you to invite a friend or guildmate back to World of Warcraft FREE for 7 days, and provides both you and your friend with epic benefits when your friend returns to World of Warcraft.

It’s been over a week now, so I checked my Battle.net account last night to see if I was able to collect the Spectral Wind Rider. You can claim this exclusive mount (Spectral Gryphon for Alliance or the Spectral Wind Rider for Horde) once your invited friend first renews their subscription and pays for 30 days of game time.

Here’s how to redeem your mount online:

  1. Log into your Battle.net account
  2. Under ‘Summary’ > click on your World of Warcraft: Cataclysm game account
  3. Towards the bottom of the page, click on ‘Referrals & Rewards’
  4. Select ‘Scroll of Resurrection
  5. Go under ‘History’
  6. Click ‘Claim Reward’
  7. Select the toon you would like the mount on (make sure you’re logged off the game)

Note: This offer only applies to one toon.

Logging in today, I received this in the mail.

The mount is a lot more transparent than I expected. It almost reminds me of my microbiology days at uni. I was growing luminescent bacteria at the time and took one of the Petri dishes back to my college dorm room, sticking it in a drawer. My friends thought I was going to use it as some sort of tacky pickup line.

Hey, would like like to come back to my room and see my luminescent bacteria?

Geez, what would you have said if I asked you that? Well, there were some dodgy ones living there that year so you had to be careful who you said that to…

Anyway, I don’t think I’ll use this for my regular mount but it’s always good to try things once right?

So thanks Cybel for mount no. 135 :)
