The Spectral Gryphon mount is the Alliance-side reward for when an inactive player accepts your Scroll of Resurrection and subscribes to World of Warcraft for at least 30 days. This reward became first available on March 6, 2012, but will only be offered for a limited time.
The invited player must have previously subscribed to the game for at least 30 days and their account must have become inactive on or before March 4th, 2012. If the invited player accepts, they will receive several incentives of their own:
- One character boosted to level 80
- Free upgrade to Cataclysm
- 7 free days of game time, and
- Free character move to your realm and faction

- As long as you have an active account of your own, you can send a Scroll of Resurrection to any of your personal, inactive accounts. Other than that, all requirements are exactly the same for any inactive account.
- This mount was very likely inspired by the spectral gryphon buff. It appears to be the exact same skin as the buff.
- The first flying ghost mount available to the Alliance.
