Introduction: How to Make a WoW Private Server in 15 Minutes!

About: Vagyok. Vagyok.

Well, this is my first instructable, so it's not perfect. Another thing: sorry for my bad english .

-What are we going to make?
-A private server, on that you (only you!) can play.

-What are we going to make NOT?
-A pirate server, that causes commercial trouble for the game's developers (Blizzard)!

Step 1: Programs

Allright, let us begin:

You have to download a program: AC Web Ultimate Repack 7.7 [link]

And you need the .Net framework 2.0 (you can download that by Microsoft, it's free)

OK, once you downloaded the program, install it (to the the default directory, or the server won't work!!!)

You are ready for the next step!

Step 2: Map-data

You will need the WHOLE map-data of WoW (in 2.4.2 ca 941 MB, make sure you have enough space!). You can collect that from your WoW installed on your computer. Go to the "C:/AC Web Ultimate Repack/ Tools/Map Extractor enUS" directory and copy "maps" and "ad.exe" to your directory (default: C:/Program Files/World of Warcraft/), then start "ad.exe". This app will collect the map-data (it takes some time).

Once it's done, copy the "maps" folder to the "C./AC Web Ultimate Repack/Server/Ascent/" directory.

Done? Right, next step.

Step 3: Logon Configuration

Right, now comes the funny part. Open the "ascent-logonserver.conf" with Notepad. There should be some text like that:

<LogonDatabase Hostname = "127.0.0.1"
Username = "root"
Password = "ascent"
Name = "logon"
Port = "3306"
Type = "1">

If everything looks like this, you can close the file, if not, change it to this (exactly this).

Step 4: Ascent Configuraton

Now, open "ascent-realms.conf". Look for something like this:

<LogonServer Address = "127.0.0.1"
Port = "8093"
Name = "Logon Server"
RealmCount = "1">

If everything's like these, then OK, if not, change them.

You have to change another things

<Realm1 Name = "Your Server Name"
Address = "127.0.0.1:8129"
Icon = "RP"
Colour = "1"
Population = "1.0"
TimeZone = "1">

Everything's like the previous steps.

Step 5: World Configuration

Last, configuration . Ok, let's open "ascent-world.conf". Look for something like this:

<Rates Health="1"
Power1="1"
Power2="1"
Power3="1"
QuestReputation="1"
KillReputation="1"
Honor="1"
PvPTimer="300000"
Compression="1"
XP="5"
QuestXP="5"
RestXP="5"
DropGrey="15"
DropWhite="10"
DropGreen="5"
DropBlue="2"
DropPurple="2"
DropOrange="2"
DropArtifact="2"
DropMoney="5"
Save="300000"
SkillChance="1"
SkillRate="1"
ArenaMultiplier2x="1"
ArenaMultiplier3x="1"
ArenaMultiplier5x="1">

I bolded (?) the lines you can change (by the way, you can change this values to whatever you want). Don't change the unboldeld lines.

Step 6: Changing Your Realmlist

Go to your WoW directory. There is a file called "realmlist.wtf" Open it with Notepad. Delete everything, and write "set realmlist 127.0.0.1" in it.

To start your server go to your "C:/AC Web Ultimate Repack/" Directory and run "Control Panel.exe", then click on the first three buttons (we don't need Apache, it just slows down your computer).

We're finished! you can play now on your own WoW server for FREE!

    does ur pc needs to remain on to keep the server running?

    If you're looking to play on a WoW 4.3.4 Cataclysm Server, offering a blizzlike experience, you might want to check:

    I am looking for some help on making a private server, I have some major changes I would like to make, to get away from a gear base game play and give the players more options, of game play. Using the WOD platform, spells, as well as some of the rich story lines, but use them in a way the is more fitting to the players game play, I would love to go over some details, with you if you have the time. Everything from new professions to new PvP, options in game play.

    I had a lawyer go over the World of warcraft contract, I was told as long as you do not charge people to play your private server you will have no law suits put on you. This means you can charge for mounts, gold, gear, raw mats, and any other thing you would like to charge for, in my make up of the private server I would like to get away from pay to win, and go for a pay to get more XP% per kill up to certain Tiers of spells. Please contact me if you would like to help me create this new wow private server.

    Send a mail to rickardkarlsson0@gmail.com

    I would do it, the only thing i would charge people for is certain mounts. i would have no instant max levels and probably have it in cataclysm. it would be cool to make my own expansion. would need a team of people to work on that though

    Ye, I could work on it, im not a programmer but I have tons of ideas and im very good at moderating!
