Joining our server is simple. You must have an account, client set realmlist, and our latest updates/downloads. You can register a new
account HERE. If you are a returning user, you may skip this step.
In order to set your client (which means your WoW game) is realmlist, you must open your World of Warcraft 3.3.5a folder. Once opened, locate the
'Data' folder. Next, you will find a folder named 'en**' (ex: enUS, enGB, enFr, etc..). Within this folder, you will find a file named 'realmlist.wtf'.
Open this file with a text editor, such as notepad, and erase all text. Type exactly the following and save:
set realmlist anarchy-wow.com
If you experience any issues during the saving process, then right-click on 'realmlist.wtf' and go to it's properties.
Un-check or un-select "Read Only". After that is completed, simply click on "Okay" or "Done".
We provide a game launcher that is created especially for Anarchy-WoW to automatically download and update your client's files and patches in order
to stay up to date with our latest releases. It also provides quick news and button features to get you aware with the latest events. It is highly recommended
to use this launcher everytime you open World of Warcraft. You can download this launcher HERE.
In case we have any problems with our launcher or you simply prefer not to use the launcher to download our custom content, then you still have the
option to manually update your client. The process is simple. You can find all our latest downloads provided HERE.
Our downloads are always called 'patch *', where '*' represents our latest patch version (ex: Patch 3.2). Download the latest patch or patches provided
and once the download is finished, you must extract all of the contents that are zipped or compressed. To extract, you need to have WinRar installed on your computer,
which can be downloaded HERE. Extract all of the files within the compressed .zip or .rar file to anywhere
you'd like (ex: Your desktop).
Go to your extracted directory (where you extracted the files) and within you should find a 'ReadMe.txt'. This file also contains instructions on
how to install our latest updates and patches. However, further instructions are still explained on this guide. Within your extracted files, you should find a
folder that contains .MPQ patch files (Named similar to: Patch-4, Patch-A, etc...). Copy all provided .MPQ patches and paste them in your World of Warcraft is
'Data' folder. Go back to the Extracted files and you should find another file called 'Wow.exe'. Copy this file and replace it with the Wow.exe in your World of
Warcraft folder. During this process, if you are required to replace any files then do replace all files necessary.
Your World of Warcraft folder creates a new 'cache' folder in your WoW directory everytime you open WoW. This cache folder causes
your client to keep a collection of stored data. Which means if at anytime we update our server's database, release new content, or you update your WoW Client,
you will not be seeing the correct latest content. Therefore, it is highly recommended to always delete your cache folder before opening WoW.
This way you will always experience the true latest and updated content during gameplay.
Using our Launcher to open WoW will automatically reset your cache on game launch. The launcher does not have to be placed in your WoW folder for this effect to
take place. The launcher can be stored anywhere on your computer and all features will still work.
