Figured you guys missed this way of doing it. It saves you a lot of time.

IF YOU HAVE PATCH 3.0.2 OR HIGHER:

1)If you have a retail account, just copy the folder and put the copy elsewhere.

2) Go into your wow Folder. And Find Patch.MPQ.

3)Delete Patch.MPQ

4)Run the Repair Utility

5) After checking the files it should tell you that Wow needs to backup to an older version follow the prompt and allow it to do so.

6) You now have World of Warcraft running at the first patch.

7) Patch up to the required Server Patch and follow the other Rules Above.

Can't be if you completely delete Patch.Mpq from your computer. That means removing it from your Recycle Bin and run the repair utility it will downgrade it.

Patch.Mpq contains all of the patches you have installed. So it would make no sense why they would still be getting patch 3.0.2 on login unless they did something incorrectly

I've done this over 10 times because I've played on multiple private servers so I know it works.
You could test it for yourself. If it works then you've managed to find a better way that people can do this. If it doesn't , nothing changes

I know I used to do your method all the time. Just since Blizzard changed some things it seemed as though they made it so you can't do it.

Okay, fine I'll change it, just from the people I've helped, this never worked. Since Blizzard likes to fuck with Private servers.
