My opinion? Make this a sign-up thing, Blizz. Give a RAF friend a potion, give the referrer a potion. I see this potion as it exists in game right now as a random rare find from the blingtron.
The current, similar version, of this is the Elixir of Ancient Knowledge.
For those worrying about this, since it’s also possible to grab in game, I guess I just don’t see what the big deal is.
Level 95 will be a daunting task for new players and any way to keep new players interested as they quest for their first max level character means that’s more new players later at max and that I’ll get to play with.
Sounds like a good thing to me.
