Confusion about the servers

#1 » Post by Zokorar » 12 May 2018 01:04

So, I read that there was a PvE realm but I can't seem to be able to find it. How would I be able to get onto the PvE realm?

You're likely thinking of the PrimalWoW server, which is indeed set as a Normal(PvE) server. To switch between servers, just use the button above the character list, same as you would on retail.

Do note that Primal is simulating a "progressive" server, and is currently mimicking Burning Crusade(v2). It still uses the same Wrath(v3) client, so, again, just switch servers the same way you would on retail.

I look at the realm select list and I see three servers, 2 of which are PvP and the third being the PTR realm. I can't see any PvE on the list.

The realms I can see are "Feronis" and "Angrathar"

Then you're not connected to TrueWoW. Make sure that your realmlist file has this, and only this, in it:
SET realmlist login.truewow.org

Then try again. You should be seeing "TrueWoW"(The PvP server), "PrimalWoW (Progressive)" (the progressive Normal server), and "Public Test Realm" in the server list.

Edit: I'd also like to add that you shouldn't be using the same username+password combination in multiple places.

Alright. Managed to fix it, I was by accident changing the wrong file all this time and thought it was my realmlist. Guess I should have checked more carefully.

Ah! Easy mistake to make. Glad you got it working, and welcome!
