    I just don't understand the some can be restored and others can't this reply I got stated character restore is a "courtesy” like why have I not been extended that courtesy I spend a lot of money on this game though subscription and buying crowns and I haven't had a character restore in quite some time I just want a real answer why my toon can't be restored when my wife's toon was just restored same day and I'm have so much trouble

    I'm going to guess at this - routine maintenance will clear out any residue of deleted data. Kind of like emptying your recycle bin - thus, if you don't hit restore before you empty that, it's almost impossible to get your data back.

    I feel your pain though - especially seeing as it sounds like it wasn't your fault. I know the pain of lag right now. I've deconstructed the wrong items after locking them seemingly unlocked them immediately without my noticing. Not sure the resolution on this one though.

    Maybe if you have any screenshots of your character, and/or achievements/crafting etc - they might be able to help with research scrolls etc to bring you back up to speed.
