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.

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

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.
