Installation Guide




DON'T HAVE A WOW FREAKZ ACCOUNT? REGISTER NOW!





Shadowlands is NO LONGER supporting 32-bit systems. If you want to play, please upgrade your Operating System or Computer to 64-bit!

In order to launch the game, you have to download and install Visual C++ Redistributable and the Latest .NET Framework

I DO NOT ANSWER TO FORUM PMS REGARDING GAME ERRORS. USE DISCORD!







  • Torrent size (85.1 GB zip file)
  • This torrent contains the full game and the 64-bit launcher!
  • We recommend using qBittorrent instead of utorrent or bittorrent, it's fast and lite.
  • Uncheck Read Only for your WoW Folder: Right click -> Properties
    IMPORTANT: You have to open launcher_freakz.exe, not freakz_915.exe.






  • 64-bit Launcher size (~50 MB)
  • Extract our Launcher to your desired installation folder and run launcher_freakz.exe.
  • The launcher will automatically download all of the required files to start the game (~1 GB)
  • The initial start can take a while (between 5 to 30 minutes).
  • Don't open it multiple times, it's running in background.
  • Use this method only if you have good Internet, otherwise your game will lag while playing and downloading data at the same time.
  • Uncheck Read Only for your WoW Folder: Right click -> Properties

    IMPORTANT: You have to open launcher_freakz.exe, not freakz_915.exe.







You can use any Shadowlands client. We already ran some compatibility tests using different clients ranging from Patch 9.0 to Patch 9.2*
We STRONGLY suggest to backup your retail wow folder if you want to play on both servers. We are not responsible for any actions Blizzard might take on you.
*Even if we ran our own compatibility tests, we cannot cover every possible error. If you encounter such errors, we recommend using Method 1.

  • Download our Launcher
  • Extract our Launcher to your wow folder and run launcher_freakz.exe.
  • The launcher will automatically download other game files if required or if your game files are not complete.
  • The initial start can take a while (between 1 to 30 minutes).
  • Don't open it multiple times, it's running in background.
  • Use this method only if you have good Internet, otherwise your game will lag while playing and downloading data at the same time.
  • Uncheck Read Only for your WoW Folder: Right click -> Properties

    IMPORTANT: You have to open launcher_freakz.exe, not freakz_915.exe.





Mac 9.1.5 client - Intel & M1 supported



Setup instructions:

- Open Terminal app
- Drag RUN_THIS_FIRST file into Terminal
- Press Enter to execute
- Close Terminal app

You can now run World of Warcraft.app directly, the first time it should take few minutes to launch (depending on your internet connection).

When everything is working correctly, you can delete "RUN_THIS_FIRST" file.



Linux 9.1.5 client

Linux guide coming soon!






Other Mentions


  • Some countries or ISP can apply restrictions or even fines for users who are using torrents, regardless of their content. Please consult with your local authorities or use alternative methods.
  • You cannot upgrade your BFA client to Shadowlands.
  • You will experience high loading times and maybe some client crashes if you are using the 2nd method. This will happen until your game files are fully downloaded.
  • The 2nd and 3rd methods are completely safe to download and use in every country, regardless of rules and restrictions.
  • You can use any other Shadowlands 9.1.5 client and just add our launcher on top and run it. Necessary files might be downloaded. However we cannot guarantee it will work.
  • You cannot use any client above 9.1.5
  • We are providing only the ENGLISH client. If you want another language please read the Q&A section below.





Shadowlands Q & A


Q: What patch is the Shadowlands realm running on?
A: It's running on client patch 9.1.5 but with progressive content unlocks. At the start only 9.0 content is available.

Q: I downloaded the game but it isn't running, what can I do?
A: Check the task manager and see if the game is running. If it is, then all should be fine. First launch can take some time depending on your internet connection's and computer's performances.

Q: Can I play the game using a different language than English?
A: Yes, when you launch the game for the first time, a window will pop up. Select your desired language and wait until your game is updated with the new files. If you already started it in English you can change your language at any time in the "System" settings ingame.
