    READ BEFORE YOU CONTINUE
    This is an enUS client, which means it is in North American English (United States & Canada).
    If you have other WoW clients on your computer, you can go and open up the WoW client you just installed so that this program will auto-detect the client's location you wish to upgrade. When each patch finishes installing, you must click OK then exit out of the WoW patch launcher before you can start the next one.

    ------------------------
    TBC INSTALLATION
    ------------------------
    Step 1.
    Download all 4 folders from the above link. They are numbered in the order in which you will use them.

    Step 2.
    Go in the WoW-2.0.0-enUS-Installer folder and double click the "Installer". There should be a pop-up window for WoW. Click "Install", and on the next screen, scroll all the way down and then click "Agree". When choosing your file path, I strongly recommend that you do not install it to your Program Files folder. I like to use C:\World of Warcraft
    Click OK. The game will now install. When the install is finished, CLOSE the installer.

    Step 3.
    Go in the WoW-BurningCrusade-enUS-Full-Installer folder and simply double click the "Installer".
    If you have other WoW clients, go and open up the client you just installed. Having it be the most recently opened client will cause the installer to detect the correct file it should install on.

    Step 4.
    Go in the TBC WoW Patches folder. Double click WoW-2.3.0-enUS-patch
    It should automatically install. Repeat for 2.3.0.7561-to.2.4.0.8089
    then;
    2.4.0.8089-to-2.4.1.8125

    2.4.1.8125-to-2.4.2.8278

    2.4.2.8278-to-2.4.3.8606
    After using all of the install files in the correct order, you should now have a full TBC client on the final patch of the expansion. You are now ready to use the client for TBC, or to update to WotLK.

    ----------------------------
    WOTLK INSTALLATION
    ----------------------------
    Step 5.
    If you go in the WotLK patches folder, you'll see a lot of patch files in here. They are mostly in order. The folders in here contain updaters for major patches, while the rest are mostly minor patches. If you follow the order of the numbers, installation should be pretty straightforward. Here is an install order list in case you may need it to help guide you.

    Starting: WoW-2.4.3-to-3.0.1-TBC-to-WotLK-Updater folder contains the updater to convert the TBC client you have now into the starting point for a WotLK client.

    3.0.1-to-3.0.2 Updater
    3.0.2.9056-to-3.0.3.9183
    3.0.3.9183-to-3.0.8.9464
    3.0.8.9464-to-3.0.8.9506
    3.0.8.9506-to-3.0.9.9551

    3.0.9-to-3.1.0 Updater
    3.1.0.9767-to-3.1.1.9806
    3.1.1.9806-to-3.1.1.9835
    3.1.1.9835-to-3.1.2.9901
    3.1.2.9901-to-3.1.3.9947

    3.1.3-to-3.2.0 Updater
    3.2.0.10192-to-3.2.0.10314
    3.2.0.10314-to-3.2.2.10482
    3.2.2.10482-to-3.2.2.10505

    3.2.2-to-3.3.0 Updater
    3.3.0.10958-to-3.3.0.11159
    3.3.0.11159-to-3.3.2.11403
    3.3.2.11403-to-3.3.3.11685
    3.3.3.11685-to-3.3.3.11723
    3.3.3.11723-to-3.3.5.12213
    3.3.5.12213-to-3.3.5.12340

    This should finalize your WotLK client install on patch version 3.3.5a.

  2. Thanks for your contribution, but after installing every patch till 3.3.5a (12340) the game does not work.
    It's missing the "lichking.mpq" file (as you can see in the pics)




  3. I've helped others who have encountered the same problem and it's been a result of missing one of the patches when installing. There's a lot in there and it's easy to miss one. If you'd like a direct download for the file you're missing, I'll upload it for you. When it's done, you'll be able to find it in the "Back-up files" folder I created on the Mega link.


  4. I've ended up in exactly the same situation that this guy up there is in: no lichking*.mpq files. I'm wondering if something in the Windows registry or the WTF files is telling the updaters not to install that file?

    If I plan to play on Lordaeron server, which files exactly do I need to download from the 1st post? Do I need all 4, or just a specific expansion?

    Which realm you play on doesn't matter so long as you have the WotLK client.

    Hi, I know this was a month ago but I'm having the same issue, and the direct DL in the mega link to these missed files is missing! Do you mind assisting? I just wanna play the game lol

    You should be able to find the lichking.mpq in here: https://mega.nz/fm/GQAlHCjT

    Hi! I have the exact same problem with the file. Would you mind putting a DL link? The link you posted doesn't work

    Can confirm the missing lich king file as well. I very carefully and meticulously made sure each patch was installed in the correct order.

  11. Is there a new link for the file? I'm having the same issue

  12. https://mega.nz/file/LIYXUCKD#eDdu4W...r4Wi5PwNNIXRQQ

    This should be a direct link to the lichking.mpq.
    Make sure it goes in your Data folder.

  13. I followed all this and inserted the lichking.mpq yet still can't see the deathknight models ingame (but i can play).
    A friend got a different wotlk version and his files are much larger btw, something is definitely off.
