I Was Gonna Delete These Characters, But…

So the other day I figured I’d do some Spring (uh, Autumn) cleaning and delete a couple of old characters that I haven’t played in years.

Then I made the mistake of logging in on them to see if they had anything cool.

But what really got me were the pets.  The above troll hunter had a snow leopard from Dun Morogh, so presumably I ran her up through Stranglethorn Vale at level ten all the way up to Ironforge.  I also had a tauren hunter, similarly low-level, with an owl.  From Teldrassil.


Now I suddenly find myself loathe to delete these two characters.  I’ll probably never play them again, no.  And yet they remind me of a time long, long ago, when hunters had mana and arrows and when I’d take each one on a weird little journey to find the most unusual pets for them.

Do you have any characters like that, who you don’t want to delete?

  1. None that I would want to delete, but I do remember the feeling of pets, and ammo, and the attachment those kinds of journeys bring.

    I really love those feelings.

  2. There are a couple of older alts I haven’t looked at for years – mostly on realms I no longer go to. Maybe I’ll take a quick look soon. Also, I do remember regularly trying to throw Alliance out of Halla in Nagrand so I could buy some of those lovely arrows.

  3. I have a hard time deleting characters with interesting stories too. If I did something with a character that was unique to them, then they almost certainly get a stay of deletion. 🙂

  4. I havent checked since pandaria but prior to that there was a cap of 50 characters on an account. I hit that number back in about 2007 and bought a second account just so I could play MORE toons on my main servers. That one now has about 20 on it.
    I visit every single one of them at least once a quarter. As they are all level 20 or above its too hard to consider deleting!

  5. It’s funny you ask that. I just deleted several characters from a few old servers but I’m hesitant to delete the first few characters I ever created. I also remember the arrows and int gear very well.
