Connection Guide


Connection to the Unknown Shores server requires just a few steps!


Firstly, you need a Warcraft 7.1.5 Client.  The main way is to download the Tinyclient at this link: [Client Download]

Note that using the tinyclient will mean that you will download files as you go through the server. If you wish to use a full download, the torrent guide is in the spoiler below.


If you are using a torrent service, there are several options for a 7.1.5 client, but here is an easy link HERE !


Now, You’ll need to download our 'Game Launcher’ which contains a Executable that will allow you to update your game and play on the latest patch! It is linked below:

Once you’ve got both these files, we’ll need to properly install them! First, you’ll want  to find where you installed your Game Client- within, you’ll find a few Exes, Dlls, and other folders- because you use a private server, we’ll have to replace all those! So, you’ll want to select all the NON-FOLDER files within and delete them. Like in this example:



With all of these files deleted, we next want to open up the Launcher we downloaded! Simply open it in any extraction program that works with 7z and extract it DIRECTLY into your Client folder!

Note: Avoid using the drag-and-drop feature and use the actual extract function to avoid any issue from improperly extracted files.

While that's downloading, set up your Game Account by going to this linkhttps://game.unknown-shores.com/signup
From there, you must match the email you used for your forum account- enter your password and press 'Sign up'!

Once you've got the client set up, playing the game is as easy as using the USAuto Patcher File, shown here:


Ensure you Run it as Administrator to avoid any issue with patching!
That file will open an
application pictured here:



The game will automatically update to the latest version of Unknown Shores, and you can then use the 'Launch' button to open the 64bit version of the client. I recommend running this application each time you play, or at least whenever you see an update to the game posted in Discord!

If you ever need to 'reset' your game to the base patch, use the 'Options' Button.


Fire up the Launcher, enter your credentials you signed up with, and log in!


Now that you're all set up to play, go ahead and join our Discord if you haven't already! There you'll be able to speak with other players, or use the ticket system to contact staff for any need!

Common Issue Fixes!



This is a common error caused by a permissions issue! It's a simple fix! find your 'WoW_Legion_torrent' Folder where all your files are contained! Simply right click the folder, go to properties. You should see a tick-box with 'Read Only' checked. Uncheck that box and click apply! You should be good to go.

Common Issue Fixes



It may be caused by your Config file- located in the WTF folder. This can be fixed simply. Download the new WTF file attached here and open it in any text editor. Replace the first line, 'set Portal' with:


SET portal "Unknown-Shores.com"


Save and exit the file, then try to login once more.
