WoW Private Server

What is the deal with these things ? I'm assuming it's just a privately hosted WoW server where anything goes (depending on config).

Is there any way someone here could host one on a box somewhere that we could roll characters on and have some fun ?

I heard it was possible to create your own items or change stats on existing items.

Might be fun for a while, instead of roaming the barrens in search of lowbie allies when you're bored, we could have a BG ruck with the most insanely twinked characters (L1's with Epic items perhaps ?)

Oh yeah, can you get banned by playing on private servers ? I don't know if Blizz have any way of finding out if you have.

Ok, kinda answered my own question.

You can connect to a private server in this way. Make a backup of your WoW folder (ok, you don;t have to but this is safer) and call it something like "wow private server". Now create a shortcut to the WoW exe so you can start wow from here or your normal directory without fucking it up. Find a free server by googling and visit their website and signing up for a (free) account. Make a note of the server location, locate the realmlist.wtf file in your NEW wow directory, open it in notepad (fnar) and substitute the wow realm with the one you have just signed up to.

Connect, login and off you go.

the one I've just tried has Level Cap: 80 XP Rate: 30x Quest XP Rate: 50x Item Drop: 5x Gold Drop: 30x

not sure about the legality of this (fuck blizzard if they can't take a joke) so I'll give the details by PM if anyone's interested.

Absolutely illegal and Blizz have been chasing. Recommend deleting the thread as per any other torrent/warez theme. Also recommend deleting the thread because it's basically just Kahuna talking to himself inanely and that makes us all look bad.

But surely if I've paid for the game (which I have) and I'm currently paying a subscription (which I am) it's no worse than playing on a CS server that someone's hosting at home ?

Cheers Matt, although the year-and-a-half's worth of updates is taking a long time. Surprisingly enough.

I was never into it like that, nor will I be. I'll be fine.

In ten months' time when I'm committed and weigh 4 stone, you can read this back to me and we'll all chuckle.

In the first few weeks when I started playing WoW, I was driving somewhere and I got lost, for a brief moment I actually looked at my dashboard for the minimap and the little yellow icon for my destination
