Destiny-The-Taken-King

Bungie has finally detailed their upcoming refer-a-friend campaign that allows the players to invite their friends to play Destiny and earn rewards through it.

As we leaked last week, there is already a whole quest available for this campaign called “A Tale of Two Guardians” and now we finally have detailed information on how to qualify for this campaign.

Bungie has listed all the details in an official FAQ, which you can read below. In addition to the FAQ, the official page for Refer-a-Friend campaign is now live.

Q: How do I qualify for Refer-a-Friend?
A: Players must have played Destiny: The Taken King in order to qualify for this program. For additional details on how to qualify for Referee, or to qualify for Veteran status to send referrals, please read the below information.
Refer-a-Friend is only available on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles.

Referees (New Players)

  • Players may qualify for Referee status for 7 days when playing Destiny: The Taken King for the first time after purchase.
  • Only players who qualify for Referee status may accept a referral.
  • Referees may only accept a referral from a single Veteran.
    • If a Pending, Accepted, or Active Link is cancelled after accepting a referral, you may only accept another referral from the same Veteran.
  • Veteran status is automatically granted once a player logs into Destiny: The Taken King for the first time.
  • If you qualify for both Veteran and Referee status, accepting a referral will have no impact on pending referrals you’ve sent to other players.

Veterans (Existing Players)

  • Veteran status is granted to players upon playing Destiny: The Taken King for the first time.
  • Veterans may only create referral links to players who meet the requirements above.
Q: How can I form a Link with other players? 
A: In order to initiate an in-game Link, players must link to each other through Bungie.net. Refer-a-Friend features are not currently available in the Destiny Companion App.
If you are a Referee: 

  • Follow the referral link that a Veteran has provided you.
    • If you have not created a Bungie.net profile, you will be asked to create one.
  • Follow the steps to Link to the Veteran. Ensure that you are linking to your Veteran on the correct console platform (e.g., PlayStation 4 or Xbox One).
    • If you see an incorrect platform, you will need a new referral for the correct platform.
  • It may take up to an hour for your completed Link to appear in-game.
  • Once Linked, the Quest “A Tale of Two Guardians” will become available from the Speaker in the Tower.
*Please note: If your referral link is not working, please check with the Veteran to ensure that the referral is still available.

If you are a Veteran:

  • Create a referral link on Bungie.net through the Refer-a-Friend tab. Be sure to create an invitation for the correct console platform, as referral links are only valid for the platform specified.
  • Send the Referral link to your Referee.
  • After your Referee has followed this URL, your accounts will become Linked on Bungie.net.
  • It may take up to an hour for your completed Link to appear in-game.
  • Once Linked, the Quest “A Tale of Two Guardians” will become available from the Speaker in the Tower.

*Please note: Veterans may have a total four Pending, Accepted, or Linked Referees at a time, per console platform. These may be viewed under the Refer-a-Friend tab.

If a player needs to remove a Pending referral or Referee, this can be done through the Refer-a-Friend page on Bungie.net.

Destiny recently received a major expansion The Taken King in September. It is now available for the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
