It happens more often than we would like, but at some point, you will probably find yourself with a stuck character in World of Warcraft. Thankfully, Blizzard has made recovery services fairly easy.

You won’t need to contact anyone directly through Blizzard to use this service, but it differs slightly if you’re playing the regular version of World of Warcraft or WoW Classic.

World of Warcraft

To get your character moving again in the main version of WoW, hit the Esc key or click on the ? button on your display to open the menu. From here, choose Support, and move down the list of self-service options. You should see Stuck Character Service, and this is where you can click Continue. The game will ask you to choose the character you want to move, and it will transport them to a safe location.

WoW Classic

Moving a stuck character in WoW Classic is mostly the same as if you were playing the retail version. While in Classic, choose the ? button to bring up the game menu. Now, you can click on Help, followed by the Character Stuck! button. This will present you with two options: Use Your Hearthstone (assuming it isn’t on cooldown), or Teleport to Graveyard.

If you’re not able to log in with your stuck character, go to the official support page at Blizzard’s website. You can start the service through their page, and you’ll be asked to choose which game you’re playing and the issue you’re facing. The website will let you move your character to another location, whether it’s the regular version of WoW or Classic.
