  • Deleted a character and cannot restore, says name is taken

We do not assist with releasing character names. Names automatically become available if the Blizzard account that holds the name has remained inactive for the past two expansions.

World of Warcraft Classic

We do not release character names for World of Warcraft Classic characters.
