Chinese WarCraft Access

I still can’t get on Blizzard’s WarCraft page, so I don’t know the official story, but we can’t directly connect to WoW servers in the US. This probably isn’t the only workaround for foreign Warcraft servers, but here’s how we did it.

Go to your World Of WarCraft directory on your computer. In this directory, there’s a WTF file called Realmlist. [Not the WTF folder] Open this up using Notepad. Change the text to say:

set realmlist
set patchlist

Save the file, and don’t do anything zany like change the name, even if Windows prompts you to do it.

Start your launcher and laugh!
