I know this is known amongst the more active WMV users, but for those who don't know already - there is a back up WoW version on torrent. We can download it and set up the path files to use the data from the backup. I think this is already being discussed on the French sub forums, but maybe the english speaking audience can get a heads up.

It works! If you get a "could not get locale" error or something similar, your path to the data is wrong. Your path file must include the "Data" subfolder, inside the WoW files. *The item names are in French*.

DISCLAIMER: I do not take credit for the work around, I am merely trying to spread the info. All credits to the video creator and the individual who backed up the files. You use uTorrent at your own discretion, I believe there are no viruses attached - as the torrent uploader is claimed to be an machinima enthusiast. I never use torrent because I'm very wary of viruses and malwares, this is only exception I've ever made because I really need to extract wow files. Having said that, I can't find anything wrong with the files - at least at the time of writing this.

All thanks to Jeronimo for his/her hard effort and the individual(s) who was smart enough to backup their WoW files - thank you!

EDIT: If there is a high enough request for it, maybe I'll put a zipped folder on my server for people to download. 29~GB zip lol!

I'd really appreciate the .zip file, not sure if anyone else has come forward yet but count me among it. My university disallows torrenting and I don't want to risk downloading something so large through uTorrent, but I'd really like to get back into WMV.

For anyone already on the French hotfix, this is a French version too.

I just downloaded the 29 GB once again, in an attempt to get an English version, but this one is not it.

Can confirm it works though, with the following limitations:

1. No Legion items.

2. All equippable items are in french.

What I do, is look up each item on WoWhead.com, then change language in the top right corner to french. Rinse and repeat. A bit tedious, but it works.

Ah sorry, I forgot to mention this - but yes this is the french version. Although tbh I never had any problems with it since I don't need item names, I just look at the file names.

If you are not seeing the new stuff from legion than it is your listfile, just the updated one online and replace WMV's listfile with that one.

It does not work to switch from french to english by replacing the frFR with enGB. I tried it and it just throws me Error 0 for trying.

Make sure you use a VPN while downloading this torrent, if you use chose to use it. I'm on Spectrum and a DMCA request was sent to them from one of Blizzard's legal teams about a violation of their copyrighted material. I normally use a VPN while using torrents, just in case, but I will say this surprised me (although, I'm not sure why) that it was being tracked.
