Final Server Steps

After completing all the steps listed above you can now start your server.

  • Run the authserver (bnetserver on master) to run your server.
    • Tip: The authserver (bnetserver on master) allows you to enter your username (email on master)/password to connect to the Realm Selection screen, and the worldserver allows you to connect to the realm itself. Once you are in-game, the authserver (bnetserver on master) can be safely closed if you wish no one else to connect to server.

  • Next create your Login Account by typing directly into the worldserver window the GM Command account create (bnetaccount create on master). Syntax: (see examples below)
  • If you wish to set the account as a GM then type into the worldserver window: account set gmlevel $account #level #realmid where $account is the account name to change, #level can be 0-3 and #realmid is the realm ID. Setting a #level of "3" is GM account level (higher numbers = more access), and the "-1" is the realm ID that stands for "all realms".

  • Minimize your servers and run WoW (never run WoW using the Launcher unless you edited the's patchlist option above).
  • Log in using the user/pass you just created.
  • The Trinity realm should be selectable. Log in, create a character, and you're all done!

Account Creation Examples:


To create your account: very important, don't use @ on account names.

Type: account create <user> <pass>

Example: account create test test

To set your account level:

Type: account set gmlevel <user> 3 -1

Example: account set gmlevel test 3 -1

Login to your account:

Log in with account test and password test through wow.exe.


To create your account:

Type: bnetaccount create <user> <pass>

Example: bnetaccount create test@test test

To set your account level:

Type: account set gmlevel <user#realm> 3 -1

Example: account set gmlevel 1#1 3 -1

Note: The username used for setting your gmlevel is not the same as the username you create with bnetaccount. You must manually find the username in auth.account.username. These are formatted as 1#1, 2#1, etc.

NOTE2: if you have connected before using this command you will need to relog.

Login to your account:

Log in with email test@test and password test.through a Custom Client Launcher (Not provided).
