8.0.1 Starter Pack
This is a step by step guide on how to install WoW and allow you to log onto Paragon 8.0.1.



In-Game Account

Your forum account, contrary to popular belief sometimes, is not the same as your in-game account and can not be used to log in to the game server. You'll need to register (and verify) an account through the website's registration system found here.



As Blizzard no longer provide data for 8.0.1, we need to use a torrent to get all the retail information and then use Paragon's Launcher to download additional patches and connect to our server.


-Paragon's Torrent: We have a torrent hosted on the game server which will give you all of the Blizzard content, however it does not contain a launcher or some of the custom patches that are required on the server. You can download this torrent from the download links provided below.


-Alternate Torrents: It is also possible to use alternate torrents to get the required data. While we don't officially support these, many players have found success with using Firestorms 8.0.1 torrent - you will be able to find this on google.


  • 01: Download and set up the torrent of your choice
  • 02: Once the torrent download is complete, also download our Starter Pack from the download links provided below
  • 03: Copy the files from our Starter Pack into the folder with the torrent. Skip any files or folders you are asked to replace.
  • 04: Run Paragon Launcher.exe and wait for the program to open.
    • Note: Choose English (US)! It won't open immediately, don't worry though! This means it's downloading the necessary files from the server.
    • Note: For Mac users you will be prompted to enter your password into a Terminal window. Your password won't display, but type it out and then press enter. This is a one time prompt needed to run the World of Warcraft application as admin.
  • 05: Close your World of Warcraft when you see the login screen and check if WTF/Config.WTF has SET portal "", this resets after the first opening of the Starter Pack and otherwise you won't be able to connect to Paragon once the server is live.
  • 06: Log in with your account (@paragon isn't necessary anymore, so user@paragon becomes user, both options still work however).


What version is it?
The Starter Pack is version

Note: Keep in mind all versions are x64, we (and blizz) no longer offer x86 (32bit) support as of 8.0.1.


Download Links
Below are the download links for these torrents & files. The torrents are raw files while the starter packs are offered in .zip and .rar versions (.rar is generally smaller, but requires winrar or 7zip to be opened).


Note: All links are protected through so bots can't sniff them out and have them deleted. They, generally, only ask for you to fill in a captcha. No ads or anything.
