how does RAF work?
So this is what i know..
1. Invite a friend for free.
2. he/she accepts and then your accounts are linked.
3. he/she buys vanilla wow [nothing happens]
4. he/she buys 30 days game time [free mount]
5. he/she buys 60 days game time [free mount]
Am i right?
At which point does the tipple exp occur? Cuz what i want to do is buy a really cheap wow vanilla key (if anyone has one please offer me a price) and just do a single month (for key activated gives 30 days free) of dual boxing botting, Or, thats right OR, single one botting while other follows just so i get triple exp.
Do i need to buy two licenses for dual boxing (HB and/or GB)?

What Is RAF?
RAF is short for Recruit A Friend. It is a new event initiated by Blizzard to generate more players. Basically what it does is when two players that are linked by recruit a friend are in the same general vicinity they will receive three times any XP received, when near each other or grouped.
Official Blizzard Recruit A Friend F.A.Q
What is "Recruit-A-Friend"?
Our new friend referral system allows you to recruit some of your friends to join you in World of Warcraft by sending them an invitation email containing a trial activation key. With this key, your friends will be able to set up their own trial accounts.
To start this process log on to the Account Management section and click the Recruit-A-Friend button. This will take you to the actual friend referral page, where you can enter a friend's email address and name one at a time. If you want, you can also enter a message that will be included in the invitation email.
How can I earn the exclusive in-game mount?
For each person you refer who upgrades to a retail version of World of Warcraft and purchases two months of game time, you will be able to give a character on the account you sent the invitation from an exclusive in-game zhevra mount. This unique mount can be claimed through the website, is only available to Recruit-A-Friend participants, and can only be applied to a single character.
What in-game benefits do we get while the accounts we play are linked?
1. Characters on both accounts can summon each other once per hour.
2. While adventuring with your linked friend/family member, you will each gain triple experience.
3. For every two levels the new player earns, the new player can grant one free level-up to a lower-level character played by the veteran player.
How long will I be linked to my recruit?
The link between the accounts will last for 90 days from the date that your recruit creates an account. Remember that for the link to work properly, your recruit must create a new World of Warcraft account using the 10-day trial key in your invitation email.
When my friend/family member upgrades from a trial account to a full version of the game, will that break the link between the accounts?
Nope! Your friend/family member will have to upgrade to continue playing past the 10-day trial, and the accounts you play will stay linked until the full 90 days have passed.
If my friend/family member recruits another friend/family member, am I linked to that person too?
No, these benefits only apply to the person that you referred directly.
Are there any limits on when and where I can summon my friend?
You and your recruit may only summon new characters of equal or lower level to the character you are playing. There is a one-hour cooldown on this summoning ability. Also, once one of the characters reaches level 60, the summon will no longer function.
Do I always gain triple experience while I am linked to my recruit?
No, only when you are partied with a character on the linked account and both players are present when slaying the monster or completing the quest. Also, if the two characters are not the same level, only the lower-level character is given the experience boost.
Is quest experience tripled too?
Yes, but only if the quest was not trivial (gray difficulty) for either character.
Do normal experience rules apply?
Yes, if a monster is trivial to either player, no experience boost is given.
How does this affect / stack with Rest State experience?
While you are partied with a linked recruit, any Rest State you have accumulated is not consumed. Only the tripled experience from the Recruit-A-Friend program is applied.
What if I'm partied with multiple recruits who I'm "linked" to? Do I get quadruple, sextuple experience?
No, you can only ever gain a maximum of triple experience regardless of how many linked recruits you are partied with.
Are there any limitations to granting levels to characters played by the veteran player?
Yes. The recruit may not grant a level to a character that is equal to or higher than the current level of the character he or she is playing.
Additionally, the recruit may not grant a level to a character that is level 60 or higher.
How can I earn the free 30-day credit?
For each person you refer who upgrades to a retail version of World of Warcraft and purchases his or her first month of game time, the account you sent the invitation from will receive a free credit of 30 days of play time.
Can I use the free 30-day credit on a different account or at a different time?
No, the 30 days of play time are immediately applied to the account you sent the invitation from once your recruit pays for his or her first month.
Can I earn multiple 30-day credits and mounts with Recruit-A-Friend?
Yes! These rewards will be given to you for each account you refer that meets the criteria listed above.
If my recruit cancels the account before purchasing subscription time, can I still earn the 30-day credit or the in-game mount?
If the recruit later comes back, reactivates the account, and purchases subscription time, you will still be eligible for the rewards. Additionally, you can always invite more friends/family members to try World of Warcraft through the Recruit-A-Friend system.
At what point does the triple experience end?
It ends the moment that your accounts are unlinked, or when the new player hits level 60.
Will death knights be able to take advantage of the bonus levels?
Yes, death knights will be able to receive bonus levels, too. But keep in mind that death knights start at level 55 and players stop receiving bonus experience at level 60.
When do players receive the zhevra mount -- after two months or as soon as the recruit has paid for two months?
Players will receive the zhevra mount once the recruit has paid for two months of subscription time.
How long will Recruit-A-Friend last?
We have not yet determined how long this promotion will last.
Can I save the "level-ups" I'm granted and use them at higher levels?
Yes. However, you will lose any unclaimed level-ups when you hit level 60, so don't save them for too long.
If I transfer a character with unused level-ups to another realm, will that character get to keep the level-ups?
No. Unclaimed levels are not moved during a character copy or transfer. Be sure to use them before you transfer.
Does this promotion only apply to new subscribers? Can I recruit someone using a Scroll of Resurrection?
This promotion is valid only for new accounts created using an Authentication Key from an email invitation sent from the Recruit-A-Friend webpage. Therefore, you cannot recruit someone who is also participating in the Scroll of Resurrection promotion.
How does summoning the other player work?
Simply right-click your target's portrait to initiate the summon. You can summon from your party or your friends list.
If a player already subscribes to an account (under his or her name) but wants to start a new one (also under his or her name) through the Recruit-A-Friend program, will that second, new account receive these benefits?
If the new account was created using an Authentication Key from an email invitation sent from the Recruit-A-Friend webpage, then yes, it will receive the benefits.
Will the experience bonus apply only to the recruit's first character? Or all characters linked to the account eligible to receive it?
All characters on the recruit's account are eligible to receive the experience bonus, the ability to grant levels, and the ability to summon.
Is my recruit or recruiter automatically added to my friends list?
No. You will need to manually add the character's name to your friends list
Benefits Of RAF
There are many benefits from RAF. Here are most of them.
- 3x all experience points gained when grouped together, around same level, and in same vicinity.
- You can receive a free Zhevra or Rocket mount after the friend recruited has bought 2 months of game time.
- You will be able to summon your friend, the one that recruited you, or the one you recruited.
- You will be able to grant a level to your friends characters that are lower than yours, for every 2 levels you gain.
How This Works:
Using RAF to effectively level incredibly fast, is so simple. Me and Dark Angel have been leveling up together and got to level 10 in 40 minutes and we weren't even trying. Just make sure you both work together to kill the monsters faster. When together you will receive 3x experience points PER KILL. When you turn in quests, you will receive 3x experience as well!

lol. math would be the difference. 2 to 5 sessions, since you must have at least 2 players to raf, and the most that can group is 5.
also i believe you can get the new rocket mount if you raf now.
