Also, that was 4 years ago, its very unlikely that they track item data from that long ago. I know they don't with characters. I deleted a warrior alt and about 7 months later asked for it to be restored. They said that they do not retain deleted character data older than 6 months, and that they couldn't help me. Sucks but at least they gave me a specific answer.
About a year later I deleted a rogue but regretted it since she had things you can no longer get. 2 months or so later I asked them to restore her and bam, within an hour she was back on my account.
I know its the popular thing to do, hating Blizzard and saying they don't care, etc... but in the vast majority of cases where I've asked them for help, they've helped me. I can count the 'we can't, sorry' incidents on one hand, and for 9.5 years of playing this game, that's pretty damn nice.
