With Oribos, our SL Realm updating to 9.2.7 on Monday, December 12th, you will need to update your client to connect! We've made it as simple as possible. Continue reading for a simple tutorial.
If you want to ensure you can play right when the update arrives, we advise you to prepare your client in advance. Do not worry, as keeping the original "Wow.exe" from the original WoW 9.1.5 client will allow you to open the game in that version! Amazing, right?

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


  • You have the 9.1.5 or any Shadowlands client, and you want to update it:
    • Download the 9.2.7 .exe here: (it is compressed in a .zip)
    • Open your FS SL client folder, where your current .exe is located, place the .zip you just downloaded there, and extract it.
    • You will have two .exe. "WoW 9.2.7 Firestorm.exe" will allow you to enter into the server with the client as 9.2.7, and the old one will allow you to enter as the old game version you had.
  • You are using the launcher:
    • Restart your launcher once the 9.2.7 update is applied on Oribos: it will download the missing files.
  • You don't have the game yet and want to start playing on 9.2.7
    • Here is the full torrent. This is the full client, so it's best to have the best gameplay and stable experience!
    • Or, here is the minimal client link: Just extract it in an empty folder and start the .exe!


Please note: The first time you will open the 9.2.7 client, if it weren't downloaded from the full torrent, it would 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 multiple times, just once, and then wait a bit. Once it's done, you will be fully set up!





We sadly do not have any solution for mac for now! But do not worry: as soon as we have it, we will provide it so everyone can update their client and play Firestorm with us!

If you have trouble updating, you can contact our staff members on the support channel of our Discord, or you can create a forum post here.
