Common Problems

  • I want to undelete characters I deleted by mistake or accident
  • How long before I can undelete a character to see the list that I have to pick from?
  • How many characters can I restore at once?

You can use the undelete feature to restore a deleted World of Warcraft® character once every 15 days, as long as that character falls within a grace period determined by their level. For a list of grace periods per level, see the table below.

Note: We will not assist with undeleting a character, even if it is still within the grace period.

 

IF YOUR CHARACTER IS...IS IT ELIGIBLE FOR RESTORATION?
Under level 10
No
Between level 10 and 29
Yes, within 90 days of deletion.
Between level 30 and 49
Yes, within 120 days of deletion.
Level 50 or higher
Yes
 

Note: Characters and their items and gold are permanently lost after the grace period expires.

To undelete a character in-game:

  1. Click User-added image on the character select screen.
  2. Select a character and click User-added image.

Your restored character will have the items, enchantments, and gems that were on the character when it was deleted. Items deleted prior to deleting the character are not restored by this feature. If the deleted character has the same name as an active character, you will need to delete or rename the active character before using the Undelete service.

Note: Your character list must have enough space to restore a character. You can have a maximum of 16 characters per realm, and 50 across all realms.
