Good news! I emailed the support staff guy who helped me earlier, and long story short if anyone wants to "recruit a friend" me, send me an email (:
"Get your friend to create a recruit a friend and send you an email. Do not do anything else with it.
Send me the battle.net log in email of your friend and I will retro link it for you." - Nice support man.
I would prefer
it if you were intending to level a toon with me, as we get 3x the xp, you don't have to play it often, I will eventually be transferring my mage over once I am able, so my new character will become an alt. Otherwise, feel free to email me. Please get back to me soon (if anyone reads this please relay it to anyone in game)
Send me the "recruit a friend" email to "firstname.lastname@example.org" (battle.net email).
