Blizzard is to resurrect the World of Warcraft Scroll of Resurrection.

Soon, and for a limited time, existing players will be able to invite departed players back to Azeroth. Those who accept the offer will have their return smoothed by a number of generous benefits, and the player who invited him or her will receive a faction-specific spectral flying mount.

Players who accept a Scroll and return to World of Warcraft will benefit from the following leg-ups:

A single character will immediately be boosted to level 80. That character will receive all skills and spells up to level 80, a flying mount and riding skill, and class-specific green quality item sets to get started.

The account will also receive the World of Warcraft Cataclysm and Wrath of the Lich King expansions for free.

Along with seven days free game time, the player will also be able to transfer to the inviting player’s current server, and swap to the same faction if necessary.

The player who sends an accepted Scroll of Resurrection will receive either a Spectral Gryphon or Spectral Windrider once the returning player has renewed for his or her subscription for 30 days.
