How to Connect, step by step!
1. Download the game.
ONLY Windows is supported!
Full client: Mirror (Google Drive) || Mirror(Torrent) We recommend qbitTorrent to avoid advertisement.
Last resource: Use battle.net app regardless of their current patch to download full client as you will only need their Data folder. Move folders as specified below in damaged files.
WARNING: With Google Drive, if you fail for some reason to clik on download and THEN choose the download location (eg. closing the download location window) you'll have to wait hours to be able to use this link again.
2. Create a game account on our website by clicking on the top right corner. NOTE: We advise you to not use special symbols such as +, -, etc. as this may give you issues when trying to log into your account.
3. Click on the Arctium WoW Client Launcher file. If you downloaded minimal client, the World of Warcraft process will be displayed in your Task Manager (Ctrl+Shift+Esc) and it will take some time to download the core files before running.
4. Once you are in the login screen, use your email and password with which you registered in step 2.

3.) Cut Data folder (the first Data folder you see when you open it. You will see _retail_ and the other files next to it).
4.) Paste it inside our minimal client (if it already had a Data folder just select the option to replace the files).
Remember that some data may be new, so your game client will still take some time to gather it.
