- My WoW account was silenced.
- I can't use most chat channels.
- How can I appeal a silence?
We silence your account if you are reported multiple times for Spam or Abusive Chat. Repeated offenses will result in account suspensions. The duration of the suspension increases each time we apply it to your account, up until the account is banned.
The following list describes what you can and can't do while silenced. For more information, visit our Account Silenced article.
