When I try to patch my WOW do I need to have an account on the US server to log on?

just open wow with launcher.exe and it should do the trick. before you hit the big PLAY button let it start downloading and you should be set.

I tried that also but nothing happens, I just get all the current news.
In My data folder is enGB and the realmlist and patchlist are both US. Could that be the cause?

hi seanderham,
sorry didnt have the time to check the whole thread. what version are you running? is it 3.05?
I had a problem when i wanted to patch my eu wow, with a 3.05 version, i was not able to patch it. luckily i have an external HD, where i store different versions of WOW, such as eu TBC, eu WOTLK, chinese version.
so i deleted my wow folder and copied my wotlk from my HD.
if you dont have a back up i guess you have to downgrade to 3.02
then you can start the wow.exe insert random user and random password and it will download. just be aware, that if you wana play in china, that you dont go over 3.13.
if you use the launcher it might just continue to download.

Thanks for the detailed guide muhan.
One question though: To do this do I just delete my patch.mpq in my data folder and download the 3.1.3 patch and save it in there?

To downpatch the guide says to delete patch.mpq then run the "repair", however repair doesnt work for me because it says "this version of blizzard repair does not support your version of WoW"

because the wrong wow.exe is in your folder. You have to restaure the original wow.exe

Whenever I extract the skeleton.exe to my WOW folder I cannot see it in there when i check later. Same problem when I try to extract somewhere else and copy it over.

Also when I extract it to a location ill see it there for a second before it dissapears.

edit: I found out that mcafee was automatically deleting it, and in the mcafee options it wont let me restore it. Does anyone know a way to tell mcafee to leave a file alone?

try to find the options for the exceptions or check if the file isn't in quarantaine. I don't have this antivirus so can't help you more

I got a quick question.

Is it necessary to uninstall both versions of WoW? My friend told me that you must have the game uninstalled to be able to use the English client for Chinese WoW.

@ the1 knightmare:
you can have 1 wow folder per drive on your computer.

eg. if you have a c:, d: and e: drive

you can have at the same time
one wow german version on "c" drive, for your EU or US account
one wow chinese version on "d" drive, for your Chinese account
one wow english version on "e" drive, for your Chinese account


you even can install a wow folder on an external HD and play from there

not sure if that answers your question?

lol. I know that. That wasn't was question...

Here's an example. I got chinese wow on a hard drive from my friend. I install English WoW onto my computer. Then I follow the steps on the first page to play Chinese WoW.

I would like to know if it's necessary to uninstall the English WoW, because my friend says it's mandatory to uninstall it.

Ok boyz and girls, here we go.

You need

- A EU/US WOTLK client
- A Chinese wow client or at least the latest root-files
- All patches up to 3.1.3 (Europe has soon 3.2.0, don’t download his now)
- A zip file: http://www.filefront.com/14164105/Data.zip
- Simplauncher_3_1_3.rar (Skeleton.exe) http://www.filefront.com/14163759/SimpLauncher_3_1_3.rar
- Enough space on your harddisk (delete your porns)

We start with a fresh computer and we do it on a safe way. Install EU/US WOTLK on your computer and patch it until 3.1.3 Version 9947.
After the EU/US client installation and patching is ready, COPY your installation folder to another partition and rename it.

C:\World of Warcraft becomes D:\ World of Warcraft –EU/US

Now uninstall your game again. No, no I’m not crazy, but we want do it in a safe way and explain it also, that normal PC users understand it.


Now you install your Chinese WOW client and patch it until 3.1.3 Version 10146.
After the Chinese client installation and patching is ready, COPY your installation folder to another partition and rename it.

C:\World of Warcraft becomes E:\ World of Warcraft –China

Now uninstall your game again.

If you want to be on a safe sidefor a crash or for the trouble what comes for sure, when WOTLK is open in China, make now from BOTH wow folders a backup copy, and save it on your harddisk (Shit, need to delete more porns) or on a external drive.

Congratulation. You can play now in EU/US with a EU/US client in your language, and you can play in China with a Chinese client in Chinese language. Ups, that not what we want, right?
Here's a quote of the first part of the walkthrough, with the parts I am questioning if it's mandatory in bold.

nope, someone posted The chinese root files so you don't have to unstall the english wow.
if you want to play in chinese, just play from the chinese wow of your friend, if you wanna play in english, delete all files (not folders, files) in your wow folder. then put the chinese rootfiles inside.
and continue reading the tutorial. ^^

No,no,no,no,no.... don't delete any. single. file. If you do this what will happen when you'll patch your wow to the next version? nothing. Just an error message. If you have all the installation files it's ok, but if you don't you gonna spend two other days downloading your game.

Don't delete anything ; simply create a new folder called BACKUP and you move your original files inside. When an update is needed you put them back.[u]

BTW, for those of us who don't really know what files to delete :

I didn't delete anything, just copied the files from chinese Root Files, then clicked "Yes To All" to replace the existing files.
And it works well.

Hi All

I dont know why people have trouble to follow simply the guide!?

It is confirmed that it works with all clients!!! Please do not delete or replace any files without making a Backup for your own sake!!!

Most of us have several WOW installed.. like me i have 3 different ones which makes no conflict beside the automatic patch updates. But that is easy to overcome by manual patching the Client and not by the Blizzard Updater!

but Hirna when you did this you still destroyed the old files... You won't be able to patch your english wow now caus you destroyed the original files.

So guys really, don't mess this, backup the files you replace because you'll need to put them back on patch day.

you are playing in the stoneage, namely in China.

China has TBC, WOTFLK is not approved by the govmt. and will mostelikely come out after Cataclysm (or whatever the new addon of wow is called) is released in the rest of the world. affraid wall affraid wall

the problem is that there are a couple things that you need to download in order to play wow, specifically the evil patch (not available for mac) and the launcher, skeleton.exe (also not available for mac)

i have a mac but i just installed xp.

unfortunately this is the only current way to solve the problem.
