  • You will need a torrent client to expansion you want. We've provided some links to clients but, you can use one you prefer.
  • You will need a program to decompress the files and extract it to your specified location.
  • For this tutorial we'll be using µTorrent.



1. Choosing your Expansion:

  • Go to the Firestorm Website or Forums. At the top of the navigation click on the "Join Us" button or alternatively click here.oMtr4if.jpg

2. Downloading the Expansion:

  • 2.1. Client Choices:
    • Minimal Client
      • The minimal client is not the full download of the game. It will allow you to play but download content as you play.
        • Note: You may suffer from lag, problems, and content taking awhile to load. 
    • Full Client
      • The full client has everything in it, and you will not have to download content while in-game.

  • 2.2. Downloading Process:
    • After installing one of your torrent clients or using your preferred one, you should be able to click on the link on the page and it should say "Open µTorrent", "Open BitTorrent" "Open Deluge", etc. 

    • If that option isn't available for you, you can right click on the client button and "Copy link address".

      • Open µTorrent and click on the link icon.

      • Paste in the link you previously copied to the box and click "Ok".

      • Viola, now your game should begin downloading. Now, you play the waiting game and wait for the download to finish.


        Note: The downloading time may take longer; it depends on your internet connection.

  • 2.3. Unpacking the Archive:
    • Once the expansion is completely downloaded, right click on the file archive, and then click on "Unzip" or "Extract Here". You may alternatively open the archive up and drag/drop the files to the specified folder. Once the extraction time is over, open the folder and run your game by clicking "Wow.exe".
    • Important Note: For those that are using the "minimal client", the initial launch of the game can be long (approximately ten minutes or so). 
    • Important Note: To play and connect to the realm Gul'dan, you must not run the "Wow.exe". Instead, launch your game via the "Launcher.exe" provided.


svH81de.pngTechnical Support:

  • If you run into any problems with your installation, game, connection issues, etc. please submit a thread in our Technical Support and we'll do our best to assist you with your problem.

Read-only Issue:

  • Right click on the game directory and click on "Properties".
  • Un-tick the box "Read-only".
  • Then click "Apply" then "Ok".

Changing the Client Language:

  • List of Locales:
    • "enGB" : English (Great Brittan)
    • "enUS": English (America)
    • "frFR": French (France)
    • "deDE": German (Germany)
    • "itIT": Italian (Italy)
    • "koKR": Korean (Korea) RTL - right-to-left
    • "zhCN": Chinese (China) (simplified) implemented LTR left-to-right in WoW
    • "zhTW": Chinese (Taiwan) (traditional) implemented LTR left-to-right in WoW
    • "ruRU": Russian (Russia)
    • "esES": Spanish (Spain)
    • "esMX": Spanish (Mexico)
    • "ptBR": Portuguese (Brazil)
  • Changing the Language:
    • If you wish to change your in-game client language, open your game directory, and navigate to the WTF folder. Open the file that has .wtf at the end (usually config.wtf or Firestorm.wtf). Look for "textLocale", "textLocale" and set the lines to what language you want it to be. We've provided some locales above!

      SET textLocale "enUS"
      SET audioLocale "enUS"

I saw you posted somewhere else the link for a wtf zip folde.r.. but the link is broken to megaupload and now that solution is gone for the problem in which the game does not start or we only see the change language option...

 Another option I found was this 

But can't quite figure it out. 


Let me know what I can do please.


ALl the best,
