Build Status


Arcemu is a World of Warcraft server package. Based on the popular Ascent project (defunct as of 2007) it aims to provide players with a gameplay very close or identical to the real thing as of World of Warcraft version 3.3.5a.

It's a multithreaded C++ application with a relational database as a data storage backend(mysql).

It also supports the popular Lua scripting language for easy extension, and customization.

NOTE: This project is mostly abandoned since the end of 2014. However feel free to try and have fun with it.


For installation instructions see the wiki and the forums.

Development box

You can get yourself a quick and dirty installation by using Vagrant. It will set up a virtual machine for you, with Arcemu installed.

  • Create a directory somewhere
  • Download the Arcemu Vagrantfile and place it there
  • Go to the created directory in the command line / shell
  • Issue the command 'vagrant up', and wait until the process finishes.

Vagrant will download an OS for the virtual machine and then install Arcemu, this process will take a while. After it is done, you can log in to the box using SSH.

ssh -p 2222 localhost

The username and password should be both arcemu (in lowercase).


You can’t perform that action at this time.
