How Do I Get Back Deleted WoW Quest Items?

I have been doing tons and tons of WoW quests in order to level up but somehow I accidentally deleted a couple of quest items from my bags. Please tell me there is a way to get them back!

This is something that actually happens a lot, so don’t feel bad, you aren’t alone! But, unfortunately, one of the only ways to get quest items back is to return to the NPC who gave you the quest. You will have to abandon the quest, and then get it again so you will receive the item you need to complete it again. Normally, this isn’t a problem if you are still in the same area, but if you are on a different continent in the game, it will take you some travel time to get back to the NPC and regain your item.

If you have thrown away WoW quest items that you had to gather for the quest, the only way to regain them is to gather them again. But, this too can be a good thing, especially if you are gaining XP from killing mobs for the items you need. Some items that you will need for quests aren’t soul bound, so you can find them on the auction house, if they are soul bound, then you will have to regather them.

A good rule of thumb is to place all the items that you need to complete certain quests in one bag. If you keep them altogether, then it is easier to find them and harder for you to accidentally throw them out.

    Another aspect about retrieving deleted quest items… I was on a quest line that was one of those “kill something, show its head to someone, then show the head to someone else” types. So I brought the head to the first person, then didn’t read the quest log thoroughly enough (or at all) and deleted the head (I don’t know what I was thinking) and so couldn’t complete quest in the line (the “show the head to someone else” bit). Is there any way to get it back, given that the way I retrieved the head in the first place was through a different quest that I’ve already completed?

    Thanks!

    Never have went through that. I guess the only other option would be to page a GM in-game and he might be able to give you the item back.

    OK, thanks. It’s a low level quest that doesn’t have any rewards except XP, so I don’t think it’s worth making too much of a fuss about. :)

    Thanks for the quick response!
