Undelete your characters in World of Warcraft

After about ten years of painful videos on YouTube where girls delete their boyfriend’s World of Warcraft characters, Blizzard has announced a solution to retrieve deleted characters.  


The new tool being presented by Blizzard is the undelete tool.  Does this mean that you can revive your level 19 Tauren Warrior twink from back in the day?  Unfortunately, the undelete tool will have some limitations, which include:

  • Characters under level 10 and Death Knights at level 55 cannot be undeleted.
  • Characters between levels 10-29 can be undeleted within 90 days.
  • Characters between level 30-49 can be undeleted within 120 days.
  • Characters above level 49 can be undeleted at any time.
  • The ability to undelete characters can only be used once per month.

Also, an interesting piece of information comes with this story.  A GM for the WoW blog commented when asked about being able to undelete characters from years ago.  Their reply was “it may be likely depending on how high the character was before deletion.”

It has been a big year for Blizzard, both good and bad. We will soon see the 10 year anniversary event held one week after the release of Warlords of Draenor on November 13th.  Blizzard also recently announced the cancellation of their project known as “Titan.”  If you are thinking about coming back to World of Warcraft, then November might just be the time.

My Opinion:

While this tool seems very useful, I feel that Blizzard may be about 8 years too late in implementing it into their system.  At least we have the new expansion to look forward to.
