World of Warcraft Private Servers have been running for a long time, and the private servers for WoW are still active and relevant.🧡 Through our page at Zremax, we will be listing all the best servers to play on. We will also give you all the tricks and info you need related to the WoW Private Server scene, and guide you! 🥳

 

What is a WoW Private Server?

To begin, let’s begin from scratch. A WoW Private Server is a version of the original World of Warcraft, made by Blizzard. This means that through these free wow servers we list, you can play older and classic versions of World of Warcraft, that retail no longer offers, such as Vanilla, TBC, Wotlk, Cataclysm and more expansions.

If you still wonder what a World of Warcraft Private Server is, you can consider it as a free-to-play and unauthorized version of the game. Unlike retail, these private servers are free and are mostly getting their money from donations. The server owners are private individuals, and not a company like Blizzard entertainment. Some private servers have however existed for many years, and are still stable and actively running.

Therefore, we can conclude that these type of servers, are free-to-play, and may not necessarily be as strict as retail. The owner of the individual server set the rules themselves, and can also customize the game as they want. As a result, server-types can be very different.

As you know by now, you can experience WoW Private Servers across different expansions, such as Cataclysm Servers, Mist of Pandaria Private Servers, Vanilla WoW Servers, and the rest. It’s a whole new world to play and game on. We have combined a Toplist dedicated to World of Warcraft top 100, which are free wow game servers to play on.

Should you play on a World of Warcraft Private Server?

That’s a good question. To know whether or not it’s something for you, you have to ask yourself this question:

Are you fine with playing an unofficial version of the game?

WoW Private Servers are complicated, but to sum it up, they aren’t exactly fully legal, as some parts of the game can be considered as copyright that Blizzard can claim. The scene is however a grey area, hence many servers even today run without any issues or indications of closing by Blizzard. But it’s still an ethical question; whether you are okay with playing a copyrighted/pirated version of World of Warcraft. Keep in mind that many of the World of Warcraft Private Servers have been running for ages, some since 2010. And there have never been reports of players getting in trouble for playing WoW Private Servers. At Zremax, we play on the Top World of Warcraft Servers too, found through list Top 100 list.

If you are clear with that, then you should know that with a WoW private server, you can experience all the expansions, even if it’s not appearing on retail. You can also experience different styles of the game, such as fun servers, blizzlike servers, customized versions, and much more. If you want to play on a high rated Wotlk Private Server, you can do so! The options are many, and that’s one of the great things.

Now that you have cleared with yourself, whether you want to play on a WoW Private Server, let’s learn how to play on one.

How to play on a Private Server?

Playing on a WoW Private Server is not hard. You need a few initial set-up steps, and then you are almost ready to play. Read below, and learn how to do it.

For a quick guide, you can see below.

1: The very first step is to find a server you will be playing on through our Private Server Toplist.
2: Visit the WoW Server through our website. Read details, and visit the website of the server, when you are ready.
3: Go to their Connection guide page, and note down their realmlist, and download the client for the expansion you have chosen to play on.
4: After downloading the WoW Client, head into the Realmlist, and paste the server realmlist in.
5: Open WoW.exe, and log in.

That’s it. You’re now ready to enjoy playing on a WoW Private Server!

A detailed guide to playing on a WoW server

We made sure that getting started on a server, is very straight forward. Whether you’re new, or experienced, we got you covered!
The first step is to find the server you want to play on. At Zremax, server owners have been registering their WoW Private Servers, and we have approved the worthy servers. Therefore, you have plenty of different servers to choose between.

The Zremax team is working on improving the list daily, keeping it up to date, to make sure you find your server. Filter through servers, and make sure you find a server you feel comfortable with! We have a review/comment system as well, so make sure to comment on the servers listed on our list, once you’ve begun playing, so you help others too! The more reviews, the easier it is for everyone to pick servers.

Now that you’ve chosen a Server based on our World of Warcraft Private Server List, you can find additional information through us. When you are ready, you need to create an account on the chosen server. Usually, pressing on the “Join this server” button upon visiting the specific server details through our list will head you over to their site. After doing so, create an account and note down the realm list.

Now you need to download the game client for the specific expansion you have chosen. We have plenty of guides to setting up your WoW Client, which you can read more about. After doing so, you can simply get started playing on your wanted WoW fan server!

We hope you’ll enjoy the journey, as there are many opportunities. You can even play on the latest expansion through a Shadowlands WoW Private Server. Also, we recommend sticking around with Zremax to help others choose servers, and help decide. A good tip to also head to reddit.com/r/wowservers – where you have a great possibility to discuss WoW Private Servers too.

Top 100 Private Server List for World of Warcraft 

At Zremax we care about the WoW Private Servers that are available.
We want the listed WoW Servers the best, and we want you, as a player, the best. Therefore, we put an honor in delivering you the best results on our WoW Game Server List.
We want to make sure you find your wanted server. With us, you can filter through expansions, features, server-type, and even search for specific keywords to find servers. You can also read reviews, and post reviews yourself – to help others.

At Zremax we like to see ourselves as a community related to World of Warcraft Private Servers and WoW Server Emulation.

If you’re a server owner, and you want to take the extra mile, we offer premium WoW Private Server advertising. We do however of course also have the free listing options.

What is the Best WoW Private Server?

There are a lot of private servers around. Above, through our server list, we will list you with the top wow private servers, that we consider the best. We will also include server details, so you can easily choose the server you want to be playing on. Through this major WoW Toplist, you will find a private server that you can consider as the Best WoW Private Server. There are a lot of potential top servers included in the list.

Through our site – Zremax, we have one main purpose. That is to help you find servers, in a modern and easy way. But, we also want to build a private server community around that. Therefore, we hope you will be rating and reviewing the servers on our list after you have played them. This way, you can help other players, to know whether it’s worth playing on the server. We welcome new players of WoW Servers, as well as old veterans, on Zremax.🧡

How many players are estimated to play on WoW Private Servers?

There aren’t official numbers as to how many players are playing, but with a little research, it’s possible to give an estimation, although it variates. It is previously estimated that around 1,3 million people are playing on WoW Private Servers. This estimation is however from when the famous Nostalrius server was available, which it no longer is. Therefore, we estimate that the number is a little less. Perhaps around 1 million active WoW Private Server players around the world, from international servers, to Russian, Spanish, and other local private servers. The truth is that there are a lot more WoW Private Servers than just the ones on the list, but not all are public and international. Many servers are made for just local countries and communities, that we don’t know about.

Some of the most popular private servers are servers as Warmane, which has around 5000-10000 players online, on their Wotlk realms, combining it to an amount up to around 30000 players throughout their realms and expansions.
