Blizzard will be adding a feature that allows players to reverse the deletion of characters in World of Warcraft. Announced on the official World of Warcraft blog, the feature will be rolled out in a content patch prior to the launch of Warlords of Draenor.

However, not all characters will be recoverable; only characters over level ten and death knights above level 55 will be eligible, and even then within specific parameters.

Characters level 50 and above are eligible to be "undeleted at any time," where characters between level 30 and 49 will only be recoverable within 120 days, and characters between level ten and 29 will be recoverable within 90 days. Players will be able to utilize the undelete option once every thirty days. Deleted characters that are recovered will have all their enchantments, gems, and items intact.

The World of Warcraft expansion Warlords of Draenor introduces substantial character graphical overhauls, which Blizzard previously said could have an impact on system performance. The full system specifications that will be required for the expansion can be found here.

Warlords of Draenor launches November 13, introducing new zones and raising the level cap to 100. For more on what it will bring to the World of Warcraft, including player-built garrisons, check out our preview.
