play World of Warcraft for free, without paying monthly fees

World of Warcraft is a popular MMORPG PC game. It's a great game but a lot of people think the $15 a month fee to play is not worth it. Follow this how to guide to play WoW legally and completely free.

The first thing you'll need to have is the World of Warcraft client. You'll need a full or retail version of it so if you need it you can either go buy the game at the store or download it at several sites such as www.bigdownload.com. Here is a direct link to the client: http://www.bigdownload.com/games/world-of-warcraft-wrath-of-the-lich-king/pc/world-of-warcraft-full-install-client

Next you will need to find a private server, this is what allows you to play WoW for free legally. There are a lot of private servers out there to chose from, you can search for one and register. Here is a few to chose from: www.xtremetop100.com/world-of-warcraft, www.gtop100.com/worldofwarcraft. Once you've registered you download a file from the private server's website.

The file you've downloaded will be a WoW Realm File. Copy this file and go to your WoW folder in your Program Files. Open the realm list folder and paste the realm file in the folder. Before you start to play make sure you delete the old realm file or move it to another folder.

Now you're ready to start playing! Just run the WoW client and create a character to start playing for free on your new private server! If you have any questions or comments just leave me a comment on this How to and I will respond as soon as I can. Enjoy!


Some private servers have more players than others. The more popular the servers the more players you will have to play with in the private realm.


Make sure you have a full or retail version of WoW and not the Trial version. To download it go to http://www.bigdownload.com.
