Toldain Talks

Because reading me sure beats working!


Toldain started as an Everquest character. I've played him in EQ2, WoW, Vanguard, LOTRO, and Zork Online. And then EVE Online, where I'm 3 million years old, rather than my usual 3000. Currently I'm mostly playing DDO. But I still have fabulous red hair. In RL, I am a software developer who has worked on networked games, but not MMORPGS.

WoW Recruit-a-Friend

I got this email from Blizzard today:

Our new Recruit-A-Friend ( program has added features that reward you even more for bringing your friends into Azeroth. Recruit-A-Friend and earn:

- An exclusive ZHEVRA in-game mount* when your friend pays for 60 days of subscription time.

- 30 Days of FREE** WoW gametime when your friend pays for 30 days of subscription time.

Also, from the moment your friend creates a character and starts adventuring with you (including the trial period), both of you will receive these additional in-game benefits:

- You and your friend will earn triple the experience when grouped together.

- For every two levels of experience your friend earns, they can grant one level of experience to any one of your characters of lower level.

- You and your friend will have the ability to summon each other from any point in the world.

Wow, that's a great deal, with abilities I've never seen offered by an MMO before. Bestowing levels on someone, worldwide summon, and triple experience when grouped. Not to mention the mount. I guess they aren't too worried about jealousy, everyone has a mount by now.

On the other hand, it kind of makes them look desperate to me.
