For this week only, the Battle Chest, which has been recently updated to include Wrath of the Lich King is available for only €5 or £4 via battle.net! The US sale is offering even bigger discounts, with a massive 75% off, meaning the Battle Chest is available for just $5.
This is the digital download, not the physical copy, so you won’t be receiving a box and a guide with it, just a code, but for such a low cost this is a great offer. It also grants you the ability to get yourself a recruit-a-friend account, or, of course, one for your friend. This allows you and your friend various perks, if you level together, such as:
- Recruit and veteran characters can summon one another to each other’s locations across the globe.
- While adventuring with your linked friend or family member, you will each gain triple experience while partied up to level 80, as long as your characters are within 4 levels of each other.
- For every two levels the recruit’s characters earn, one grantable level is gained. Recruit characters may then grant these levels to the veteran player’s character as long as the character is lower in level than the level granting character
The important things to note, here, are the triple XP gain and the grantable levels. These can be used to boost your characters all the way to 80 in record time, and, if your friend just happens to have the same name as you on their battle.net account, or if you just created another one in your own name (which is just fine, by the way, GAMEBREAKER doesn’t encourage cheating or exploits), you can transfer the leveled character over to your main account for the cost of a Paid Character Transfer.
And if you do choose to use this offer to go down the recruit-a-friend route, you also get the rather excellent Obsidian Nightwing mount, once your friend has bought 2 months of game time!
