You can undelete your World Of Warcraft characters soon

1 min read


We’ve all been there before. Despite constant windows begging us to think twice, sometimes we can’t help but accidentally click through all of them and go on to proceed to killing off our World of Warcraft character. I get you guys, that kind of sucks. All those fetch quests for extra levels, down the drain. But soon, you can get a second chance at resurrecting your beloved warrior in World Of Warcraft.

The upcoming patch 6.0.2 for WoW which sets the stage for the Warlords of Draenor expansion, will allow players to pull a Jesus and undelete any of their characters, if certain criteria has been met within the previous 30 days. Here are the patch notes:

Undelete” characters

  • Characters under level 10 and Death Knights at level 55 are not eligible to be undeleted.
  • Characters between level 10 and level 29 will no longer be recoverable after 90 days.
  • Characters between level 30 and 49 will no longer be recoverable after 120 days.
  • All other characters level 50 and above are eligible to be undeleted at any time.

Deleted character names will stay linked to an account for some time, giving players a grace period of sorts and allowing them to reuse that name if they want. The old name’s new recepient however, must be renamed transferred or deleted if said player wants to restore the original title to the older character.

If you’ve been sitting on a character for a while though, pay attention. Blizzard has mentioned previously that they’ll be reclaiming names from any characters who have been out of action since November 13 2008. So if you haven’t sent Sir Kitten-Tickles on a mission as of late, now might be a good time to save that WoW warrior from a permanent death.

Warlords of Draenor hits shelves on November 13.

    I need to try an MMO sometime. Only tried Marvel Heroes Online before and it was so terrible that I pretty shunned the entire genre.

            I actually considered it, but seeing as how Neverwinter is F2P I thought I’d try it and see if it intrigues me at no cost to myself. And my gf is quite keen on trying it out too.

    You have to be pretty fucking thick to delete a character by accident as you actually have to type in the words DELETE to confirm that you want to delete that character.
