I'm trying to start playing WOW on my Mac here in China. I brought my Mac in two years ago with a EU version of WoW. Now I am playing on a private server from somewhere in the UK where they havent gotten that server updated for 3.0.8 yet.

Now a few questions for you guys to answer for me:

1. On what server are the most foreigners located for Horde? (I'm planning on going Horde so don't bother trying to get me on Alliance ;-)
2. How much does playing time cost here in Beijing and how do I charge it? How long will it take before the playing time will expire?
3. If i update my EU client with the latest EU version of WOW i will get 3.0.8, but the Chinese one has 3.0.5. Is there any mirror out there that allows me to download the 3.0.5 patch only and update my client with that?
4. I downloaded the Fonts.rar with the Chinese fonts and am going to install this on my Mac. I know how to change my realmslist.wtf file into the Chinese server cn1 or cn6 (Beijing). I signed for an account and it's ready to go. Will I be able to play like this when I sign in with my account?
5. Anything else I need to know before I start playing?

Thank you all for your great help in advance!

1. Horde, Exelent! The most Horde populated server is the PVP realm 山丘之王 CN1 (SHanghai 1)
2. A WoW time cards costs 30 Yuan (元); And I'm not sure about the exact time period, but about 600 hours I guess
3. http://wow-in-chinese.forum2jeux.com/technical-support-f2/wow-305-aka-the-evil-patch-episode-ii-t933.htm
4. Well, we are at a patch bigger than 3.0 , so the realmlist.wtf will be in your Data/enEU/realmlist.wtf . Then you should be able to play.
5. Yeah, our 山丘之王 is full of broken off Valor guilds, and is over populated by Alliance AND our battle group blows (Sucks)

It used to be 30rmb for 4000mins (dunno the current rate, probably the same); you can buy credits in some convenient store but mainly you want to buy credits off net bar (网吧). However the policy may depends from one net bar to another and some crappy ones may ask you to give the money so they refill for you; should they be trusted, frankly I dont know but I would take the risk. Ask them to give you refill instead.

You have the link and the process to recharge explained in detailed in some stickies of this forum.

OK, so CN1 it i that i'm gonna join. How's the latency then if i connect to it from Beijing?

3. I read that I can just upgrade to 3.0.3, but unfortunately there are no Chinese WOW clients for Mac, So i can't just replace the .exe (.app for Mac) with a Chinese version. So what to do? Just update and try? Try and fail I will not be able to play on my precious private server ;-)

Where should i go to then if your battlegroup blows? Razz

Well, I don't know about the latency because I live in Shanghai.
But I do have something for you: Sorry trying to find a decent file uploaded site (Recommendations plz) it's supposed to be the WoW 3.0.5 .app <= Chinese version

Well, check out the other ads for guilds!
