How to restore old character names after account reactivation

by João Mendes   Last Updated October 19, 2019 16:14 PM - source

I've been inactive in WoW for several years. I just renewed my subscription to find that all my character names have been mangled. Presumably, this was done by Blizzard to free up the names for other players that might want to use them.

I would like to restore the old names. To the best of my knowledge, the names I used to use are still available on the realms I used to play in.

I understand Blizzard provides a paid name change service, but I have some fifteen characters on my old account, and that's a substantial amount of money. Are there any other options for returning players?
