Downloading / Updating to 8.2.0 Client

177 posts in this topic

News forum.jpg


With Sethraliss, our BFA Realm upating to 8.2.0 on Monday 18th November, you will need to update your client in order to connect! We've made it as simple as possible, continue reading for a simple tutorial:

NB: The full client downloads every game data right away: it takes longer to download and requires a soft like bittorent, but once it's done you will have the whole game ready. The minimal client is smaller, faster to download, but will then download missing datas as you're playing, slowing you down.

FOR WINDOWS:

  • You have the 8.0 Client and you just want to update it:
    • Download the 8.2.0 .exe here: http://fstorm.cc/82-Download (it is compressed in a .rar)
    • Open your FS BFA client folder, where your current .exe is located, place the .rar you just downloaded there, and extract it.
    • Your current .exe will be replaced (So you will no longer be able to log on 8.0) with the new one, click on it and you're on!
       
  • You are using the launcher:
    • Just restart your launcher once the 8.2 update is applied on Sethraliss: it will download the missing files for you.
       
  • You don't have the game yet, and want to start playing on 8.2

 

Please note: The first time you will open the 8.2.0 client, if it wasn't downloaded from the full torrent nor by the launcher, it will take a bit of time (between 2-5 minutes) to download the missing files, but in the meantime nothing will appear on your screen, that's normal ! Do not open it 43 times, just once and then wait a bit. Once it's done, you will be fully set up!

 

FOR MAC:

  • You want to download the full torrent
  • You prefer to download the minimal client: http://fstorm.cc/82-MAC-Download

    In both cases, you will need to do those following steps in order to be able to play:
    • If you have downloaded the full torrent, unzip it and then find the mac .zip in it. If you downloaded the minimal client, this is the only zip you will have so no worries!
    • Extract the .zip into a folder (we will call it "WoW FS BFA")
    • Open a terminal, and place it inside the WOW FS BFA folder
    • Type the following command in the terminal: sudo xattr -rd com.apple.quarantine ./World\ of\ Warcraft.app 
    • Launch World of Warcraft, you're good to go!
       

If you have troubles updating, you can write contact our staffmembers on the support channel of our Discord, or you can create a forum post here

If I use the launcher and I have full 8.0 game, will it download the whole 8.2 or will it download when I play in the background, cause if its gonna be background download I might as well download it fully from the torrent.

You mean it won't work if you just download the missing files using the launcher?
