I have always like blizzard support. i used to farm strat for rivendares mount and one time i bugged the construct room before rivendare and the gates never opened. i put in a ticket so i could get ported out so i could restart, and when the gm responded they opened the doors for me and wished me luck getting the mount. right when i killed him i get a message from the gm and it says " peers, did it drop"? when i looted it there was my mount and it was awesome.
But What if there is a private server for blizzard employees only and bots of all the deleted characters randomly roam Azeroth with their deleted items. The only way they can get your characters back is by defeating it themselves.
