Here you can find different sources of downloads for the the Vanilla World of Warcraft client, specifically patch 1.12.1. These clients are pre-installed so all you should need to do is extract them from the zip file and update your realmlist to the server of your choice.
- Windows – Client from Nostalrius
- Windows – Client from Elysium
- Windows – Client from SoloCraft
- Windows – Client from RetroWoW
- Mac – Mega.nz
Note that it is possible that Blizzard does file copyright strikes with the ISPs for people using torrents to download their older clients. There are a couple of different options to help with this, we recommend using either a cloud based torrent client such as Bittorent or a VPN (Proton VPN is a solid choice, they have a decent free tier also).
