Although if you had no account security then some gold farming company in China has probably already stripped your toon clean of everything and may have also deleted them (although I don't know why they delete toons... seems rather spiteful)

As long as you have the email attached to the account you should be able to recover, accounts that are inactive for long periods seem to end up compromised quite often.

It's possible, I got my old hunter back that I deleted back in wrath or at least around there. I opened up one ticket and I got a typical vague GM answer, followed up with another ticket and I was able to restore my hunter despite not being in the list of deleted characters. My advice is to provide as much information as possible character name, server, anything you can think of.

Deleted doesn't matter. You have the ability to restore a character every 15 days.

It doesn't. As even mentioned in this thread, GMs still have access to it. So even in the rare case where you can't manually Character Restore it yourself, it's still there.

The only time it matters is if you're trying to restore a character outside of normal requirements, such as below level 10.

Then why can't they restore all my blessed sets from the WOTLK prerelease event if they have records that far back? I just have access to the plate shoulders and nothing else and they said theres no proof I ever had any other pieces through multiple tickets.

OP here thanks for all your responses. I couldn't log in to my original account so i just made a new account with my current email and made another troll mage with the same name xD. I have a question though does the leveling get harder? I'm only level 4 but its so easy i dont remember the leveling in Durotar to be this easy back when I played vanilla.
