Common Problems

  • My WoW characters are missing.
  • I can't see any of my characters.

If your characters are missing in World of Warcraft, check the following steps before contacting us.

  • Use the scroll bar on the right side of the Character Select screen to scroll down. Additional characters may be visible at the bottom.
  • You have the wrong realm selected on the Character Select screen. Click Change Realm to see what realms contain your characters, and to select a different realm.
  • You are logged in to the wrong game account or region. Select a different account from the dropdown above Play on the Blizzard desktop app.
  • You are logged in to the wrong Blizzard account. Log out of the Blizzard desktop app and log back in using the correct email address.
  • Check BlizzardCS on Twitter for breaking news and information on our services.
  • If you've returned to World of Warcraft after a long absence, you may need to refresh your character stats. To do so:
    1. Select the realm your characters were on, on the character select screen.
    2. Create a new character on that realm to refresh your character list.
    3. Exit the game and delete your Cache folder.
