Blizzard has made changes to the Recruit a Friend program in Patch 7.3.5. The XP boost gained from the Recruit-A-Friend program when playing with a linked friend is down from 200% (300% XP vs. base XP) to 50% (150% XP vs. base XP). In addition, the XP bonuses provided by heirlooms do not stack with the RAF bonuses.

Players that were actively RAFing when these changes were announced will get the benefits of the old program.

One notable undocumented change from Patch 7.3.5 is the nerf to Mythic Blast Furnace in the Warlords Instance Blackrock Foundry.

We first saw this reported on Reddit by Bloodwake393:

Me and a few of my friends did M BRF after our guild raid tonight and we noticed that Blast Furnace took a bit longer in the beginning (the initial part where u blow up the furnace took ~3-4 minutes longer than usual), but past that, the slags did not require us to MC a guard to kill.

Hey everyone! We're back with another Classic Spotlight, where we take a deeper look at events that happened during WoW Vanilla to remember them and get hyped up for the upcoming WoW Classic servers! In our first post of the Ahn'Qiraj series, we went back to take a look at the Ahn'Qiraj War Effort, the server-wide event to open these raids. In this post, we're taking a look at the instances themselves, Ruins of Ahn'Qiraj and Temple of Ahn'Qiraj!

Running from January 21st through 23rd, Call of the Scarab celebrates the opening of the gates of Ahn'Qiraj. The Call of the Scarab micro-holiday is now live on NA and EU realms.

The event will pit the Alliance and Horde against each other to earn the most credit by turning in Commendation Tokens: whoever wins can fly their faction flag in Silithus for a year. This is also a great source of experience for alts.
