I stopped playing WoW just before 3.0 patch came out and deleted all my characters and items to make sure I didn't return, is there any way I could get back and start on WotLK without having to roll new chars?

Just email blizzard, said you made a mistake, then they will give them back, if you also have some screens, login scree, of your inventory/gear, anything wohuld help i guess

If you had that much of an issue that you felt like you had to go scorched earth, I'd say don't come back, it's not like the problems won't resurface quickly.Otherwise, level grind or buy an account, I'd think are it.

That didn't work out so well for you, did it?

Sounds like you had a very strong reason for quitting WoW and making sure you don't come back when you feel weak.. really think of your reasons for quiting before getting drawn back in. WoW is a very easy game to get absorbed in and ignore your RL responsibilities and goals.

Just make a level 1 and contact a GM, as long as you can remember the name, race and class they can usually find it and the level is a big help as well, Ive personally gotten back about 3 characters using this method.
You can always contact Blizzard and ask for a restore. They may be able to help you.

If you succeed in recovering your characters, you should just sell the account next time you decide to quite permanently.

Er... buying and selling accounts is still against the TOS, right?Cause I see a lot of people advocating it like it's no big deal. Let me state this clearly. DON'T buy or sell accounts. It's a "Bad Thing(tm)". It also gives money to those same people who are probably going to hack your friends account and clear out your guild bank.

Plastic Rat, if selling our account gives money to the people that will hack your friends account.... Either you are planning on hacking your friends account, or... Your version of the free market is vastly different then mine.As to whether selling the account is permissible in the first place, if you stop paying your account, ceasing to subscribe, are you still within their authority? That is to say, what power do they legitimately have over someone who is not a customer?
