Hi Se7ensinners as u can tell im a new user, got introduced to this site by a friend and am new to all aspects of modding etc and just have a couple of questions regarding WoW private servers, any help would be much appreciated. :smile: if i say something which might sound obvious please do not think im just ignorant, just very new to this :smile:

1. I know by reading previous posts that there are private servers for BC (2.4.3) but is there up to date servers to the latest retail patch?

2. Another person i live with shares the wireless internet and plays retail wow, if i wer to make/use a private server, would that in any way compromise how they play e.g could their account get banned i.p etc or could it compromise the security of their account details.

3. I try to be very aware of malicious downloads etc, if i wer to decide to make/join a private server one does anyone have any names of reliable servers/downloads which are 'honest' and which wouldnt cause me/anyone on my internet connection trouble. and possibly could post a descriptive up to date tut of making one (public or not)

Thanks

Okay not sure about question number 1. Numba 2 is easy. That is a no. Number 3. I think you need regular WoW downloaded onto your computer first then just change the client IP. Some people have custom clients for custom items.

Hey NewMod,
First, thanks for taking time to answer my post the number 2 answer really helps! as for question 3 im not great at this so if u could maybe clarify what u mean by 'some people have custom clients for custom items'. and how i would go about changing the client IP and what that means. also ive heard from a friend that he had joined private servers before and had to get a new computer because apparently viruses were being uploaded to the server and downloaded to his computer. is this possible and if so was that because he was on a particularly unreliable server or is it a chance u have to take with any server. Many thanks :smile:

Well, some d***s like to give people viruses so make sure when you go on a server to have firewall, antivirus, and also a really famous server would be best. Custom clients are needed for certain items that the server creator wants in the game. Lets say he wants a nuke as a weapon. He would have to take the nuke model and insert it into the client. If you did not have his client you would see the nuke as a null which could be lots of weird things.

Here is a famous server. http://www.eternion-wow.com/
It should have guides on how to log in and so forth. Any questions just ask me! rep+ If I helped =)

Well I can say for question one there a tons of servrs on retail patch. If there not on retail I can help you down patch as I do this for my friends allt eh time. Very easy.

For number 2 you shouldn't have to worry about him getting banned. I don't think theres a way they can track it. I switch from private servers to retail all the time and I don't get banned and Im on the smae computer.

For number 3 I have played on countless servers before looking for the one that suites me best. Out of all of them I have never found one that has tried to give me a virus. I have to say I wouldn't recomend making your own withotu the proper equipment. It will get lonely without people and very laggy.

A few servers I know that are safe and are fun.
NeverendlessA nice server with 15x rates. Level 80dk Paladin and Priest
World Of BloodCraft A very nice server 100% blizzlike Level 23 Preist

I don't play wow much but if your on any of the servers let me know. Hope I helper :smile:
