Login stuck on Handshaking

Postby Knightyan » Fri Aug 26, 2016 1:31 am

First foray into Vanilla servers. After doing my research, it looked like Rebirth would be the best for me. But so far, no luck getting in.

I have installed Vanilla WoW from CDs.

I changed the realm wtf through Notepad edit and save.

I click on WOW, log in with Rebirth Game Account, and try to connect. It just stays on Handshaking.

Did I miss a step somewhere? Anything else I need ro do? I am dying to get started!

Have you patched to 1.12.1? That could be your issue. Just do a quick google search and you should find a patch file to download. Once you download it put it right in to your Vanilla WoW file and you should be good.

A sure-fire way to get the right version is to download a vanilla client directly rather than from CDs (which I've never done, so I can't help you there).

Google 'wow client 1.12' or 'vanilla wow client' and you'll find a bunch of hits. Don't get the Feenix one as it's hard-coded to log in to their server (so I've heard).

Hopefully that fixes your issue. Welcome!
