How To Connect

NOTE: The Bad Ash realm supports WoTLK 3.3.5a while our Dark Ash and Kick Ash realms currently support both Cataclysm 4.0.6a, 4.1.0 and 4.2.0!

To Connect:

1. If you have not already, register a new account by clicking [here].

2. Use our custom [Ash Realms Launcher] which allows trinket mounts to be added to your action bars and/or right-clicked from inventory and it will prevent custom items from changing in appearance when you move them around or zone! If you plan to play on the Cataclysm realms you will absolutely NEED this or you will not be able to cast spells, use items, or interact with NPC's or objects! If the launcher won't take you to the link to get wowwin.exe then you can get it by clicking here: [wowwin.exe pw:ashrealms]1. If for some reason you can't see our customs after logging in then see #4 below! You will need Windows 98 or higher and .NET Framework 3.5 installed ([download]) to run our launcher!


Open your WoW/Data/enUS directory and edit your to read:

set realmlist
set realmlistbn ""

And then use the wow.exe or wowwin.exe (Not launcher.exe) to connect.

3. If you're using a Mac and want to play on our Cataclysm realms you will need to download [wowmac]1 and place it in your WoW directory.

4. Also if you're using a Mac (or our custom launcher is not allowing you see our custom items in-game) to see our custom items you will need to download [this file] or [this file pw:ashrealms]2 and copy it to your WoW/Data/Cache/enUS folder (NOTE: enUS = US WoW, if your folder has different letters then change the downloaded filename's letters to match! - may not work with all client versions) then over-write or move the existing file with this name.
