How to Connect to Our Server

How to Connect to Our Server


Hello and welcome to TrueWoW -- home of the TrueWoW and PrimalWoW realms! This will serve as a step-by-step guide to connecting to our realms.


1. Download the Wrath of the Lich King (3.3.5a) client
We do not use a patched version of the WotLK client so anywhere that you can obtain the base (no custom patches) version of the game, it should be perfectly fine to use here. If you already have the client from playing elsewhere, you can move on to the next step! If not, we provide torrent and zip file links on our Downloads page. If you feel that the download page links do not work, please create a topic in the General Support forum and staff will investigate, updating the available links if necessary.

2. Update your realmlist
Locate the file "realmlist.wtf" inside your WoW folder. It is usually inside the Data folder, in subfolder enUS or enGB (depending on your client locale). You can open realmlist.wtf using any plain text editor, such as Notepad. You will want to edit the text inside this file to have a single line saying "set realmlist logon.truewow.org". Save the file, and close it.

3. Create a forum account
On TrueWoW, we use a double-account based system. The first account you will need to create is a forum account. Forum accounts are used to post on the forums, as well as access and manage content related to your in-game accounts (ie. Recovering lost passwords, buying vanity items). You can create a forum account by hovering over the person icon at the right of the navigation bar on the top of the website, and clicking Register at the bottom.



You may read our Terms and Conditions, and you will need to click "I agree to these terms" to move forward. You will then need to enter:
  • A public username for the forums
  • Your email address
  • A password
  • Confirmation of your password
  • Your preferred language
  • Your timezone (for post date/time adjustment)
Click the checkbox to prove you aren't a robot and then click submit to complete the form.



4. Create an in-game account
On TrueWoW, we use a double-account based system. The second account you will create is the one used to log into the game itself. Log into your forum account first, and head to the Account Manager. It is available under the Account heading on the navigation bar. The second box down on the left can be used to create a new game account, and automatically link it to your forum account so you can buy vanity items or recover your password if necessary in the future. We highly recommend that you choose the WotLK expansion option, as this option will NOT automatically update as new content is released on PrimalWoW. This will not change anything about the available progression content on PrimalWoW. Click the Create and Link button.


5. Log into the game!
Open your client downloaded in Step 1, or reopen it if it was already opened when you performed Step 2. Enter the username and password you created in Step 4 (NOT Step 3, and do NOT use your email address to log in). Click submit and you should be able to access the character selection screen. If you are not defaulted to the realm you want to play on, click the Change Realm button in the top right corner. Remember that TrueWoW is the PvP realm with fully-released Wrath content. PrimalWoW is the PvE realm that is undergoing an emulated progression from the start of Vanilla up to end of Wrath.



Welcome to TrueWoW, from all our staff and players to you!

We hope you enjoy your time here. Please be sure to say hello and let someone know if you need anything while you're here. :)
Welcome to the family, doggo. <3

Download the Truewow Client: ZipFile!
In addition to the Torrent, we've added an alternative download for the times when seeding is low or for issues likewise. The method is the same, download->extract->Play! - No installation needed.
Be aware, game files are tuned to the minimum. Files which is not always being used has been neglected. For example, there will not be any launcher.exe 'nor repair tool or DLL's attached to them.

Edit: Use the "Download Through your Browser" option!

Only Requirement is to have Winrar/7zip installed:

There is a problem with the torrent that is included. You cant change the realmlist without making a new file... And that file wont be a .WTF file so it wont work the entire folder it is in is edit protected in my case can someone link me a download to just the realmlist?

For any read-only files, you can just go to properties and uncheck "read-only".

Here you are: http://tiny.cc/PrimalWoW
Just change the realmlist once the download is completed. :)
I can't find the folder to change the realmlist

current version : 3.3.5 (12340) release
June 24 2010

So I start the client from wow.exe (after setting the realmlist to set realmlist logon.primalwow.org:3725), try logging on, and the client insists on downloading a new patch (4.x.x), so I hit cancel. Get a dialogue box that says "failed to apply patch...." and won't let me log on.

What am I doing wrong? I've uninstalled the other versions of WoW I had. Help!

EDIT: fixed.

Log in with the ACCOUNT NAME you created, NOT the email you linked.

I tried doing this but it says my account name or password does not match. I've triple checked and put it in multiple times and it still doesnt work.

Once you've finished downloading the client, I would recommend copying the whole thing and saving a backup somewhere, in case it starts to update, as this will screw up the whole thing. I've had to re-download the whole thing a couple of times because of this, as the battle.net client for retail-WoW has somehow managed to corrupt the Lich King-launcher file a couple of times whilst updating current WoW. I don't know how I managed to do that, but nooby PC-users such as myself might run into some of the same issues. So just remember, make backups! Preferably on an external drive.

Hello, i am confused at Step 3 - 2 - Creating an account for game. I have used the same email address as on my forum account, does that mess anything? And whats the expansion choice related to? We all play to a cap of 60lvl, so it doesn't matter what i choose?

Expansion choice locks you from WOTLK features like Barber Shop or Dual Talent Spec.
