First of all, I am from Norway and came to Shanghai 6 months ago. I played hardcore in with 4 70's but the lagg here is to bad.
How do I get hold of a chinese account? I already have both normal and TBC in english version and I want to play with an English interface/game version. I just need to find out how to get a chinese account and change the login files to chinese version. (I've already read the FAQ's)

Hopefully there is a guild on a shanghai pvp server. If so please tell me which server to start on. Im getting 3 friends to join me too. Getting some arena teams and BG's together would be awesome!

All help is greatly appreciated! (Btw. what is the average latency when you play from Shangai on a Shanghai server?)

Hey man, welcome

Average latency is between 50-200ms for me and I am not even in Shanghai. However peek time it can get a bit higher.

I am so so so happy to see more pvpers playing. I lost 2 70's on US server and am starting again from scratch here in China. Rolling Eyes

What you need to do is the following to make an account...
1) Make sure you have the very latest version of wow installed on your computer. Sometimes the chinese wow version lags behind in US updates and patches. However, at the moment they are the same. Its up to version 2.3.3 (7799).

2) Go to http://www.wowchina.com/
Click on "1" this should take you to the 1st step in the account creation process. Here you have to make an account with "the9" (its the name of the chinese company in charge of wow in china).

box1 = Account Username
box2 = Password
box3 = Repeat Pasword

box4 = Real Name
box5 = Chinese ID number (This is something you dont have and will need to ask a chinese friend to supply you with their ID number. All chinese citizens have 1. This is where girlfriends come in extra handy).
box6 = Email address.
box6 = Type in the code that you see on the screen.

you can use:
[url] http://www.google.com/translate_t?langpair=zh|en[/url]
as a translator, just cut and paste the text into the box and click translate (remember to change it from chinese to english).

3) Once you have successfully created your account and logged in you will need create a CD key. To do this you will need to buy a WOW game card which you will then use to get your cd key (note. these cards can also be used for game time). As you have probably read here at the forums they are sold at most Internet bars. Ask for "Wo Yao Mai Mosho Sjijie Card" (not sure of the pinying). They cost 30 yuan. You then use the code that you scratch of to get your cd key.
- After you have logged in, click on 1 of the following 游戏充值 充值历史 游戏余额 buttons.
- On the left side should be column of options. Look for 购买CDKEY (Buy CD key).
- This takes you to the page where you enter your scratched card number, along with the number you see on the screen. If correct you should be given your new CD key. The page where you enter the scratched of number is (note. you need to enter your: "the9" username and password):
https://passport.the9.com/active/ctl_active.php?action=buycdkey&sSiteCd=WOW

4) Now you need to enter your CD key. Once you arrive at the CD key page you will have 4 options:
[url] https://passport.the9.com/active/ctl_active.php?action=chkactive&sSiteCd=WOW [/url]
These represent the different areas in China. I am at: 一区/四区(电信)已认证CDKEY which is the 1st one (You can play on the Shanghai server here). I reccomend going there, you can always change it later (at a cost of buying another wow game card). Enter your CD key.

5) You have to change your realmlist to represent chinese servers not US or Europe. To do this you need to:
- Go to your wow folder.
- Open the "Realmlist" file using notpad. Change the line to:
set realmlist cn4.grunt.wowchina.com

6) Create a new folder in your wow directory "called Fonts". You need to download a file and unzip it into this folder to recognize the chinese characters. (I am looking for the link to this file and will add it later).

7) Start wow, log in..If you cant see the server list, or can only see ?'s click on any server and make a character anywhere, log in, run around for a second, and then log out. Go to your Wow Folder, Open your WTF file. Open your "Confif" file using notpad. Change the Set realname command to the following: SET realmName "山丘之王". This should make this realm your default login realm when you next log in.

Cool Make charcter on horde side, power level, kill alliance, win!!!!
- Add my character to friends: Resto

I really hope this helps. I will add and change a few things here and there to make it more user friendly in the future!

You can try the ID number on this link http://www.southcn.com/news/gdnews/sz/sfz/dtxw/200403200408_386248.jpg

I guess it should be okay.

the problem is that the realmlist is blank...and when it says choose language for realm, the only option is english.
i don't get question marks, the whole realmlist is just blank=/

the solution was for me to

1. download the chinese wow from wowchina with bittorrent
2. install, login, create character on the realm where you wish to play
3. copy wow.exe and config.wtf from the chinese installation in the wow folder and replace the original files there

start wow.exe not and your new character will automatically load. a bit complicated but worked for me. whenever i want to change server or create a new character it is helpful to have a chinese wow version for this purpose ^^

to be on the realm you want, just do as Resto said Smile
you can find the list of realm you need on wow china website.
http://www.wowchina.com/
click on 一区 and you'll have the list. PB is you canot know from the list if it's PVP or PVE realom Smile
But we are on 山丘之王 hord side and it's a PVP realm for sure Smile
some are also on Ally side on 玛多兰 realm. PVE for sure:)

Go to your Wow Folder, Open your WTF file. Open your "Config" file using notpad. and copy: SET realmName "山丘之王" (if you want PVP)


PAPPE, could you see the names of the realms in chinese with your foreign client WOW doing this way ?

SHAZ, i am in shanghai, and i can just simply give you a fully patched wow / tbc. its the fastest way.
i got a car, so i can even drive up to ya and show you how to do the stuff at your home. lol
PS: working for a norwegian company now. would be fun to know more norwegians.

Enjoy the game.
we are quite a bunch of people in shanghai, but not all on same server / realm.
but we are here for each other.
my raid finally got illidan down to 4% last night. was very exciting. i like that.

say hello to the highest Damage mage on the whole server and the top 1-2 DPS toon in general (having the race with my raid's lock, whith whom we fight for the server's #1 spot... lol... popped 1500 DPS on a 10+ minute fight, sustained.... rock on, people)
