How to De-Patch to 1.0.0
Complete Guide to Downgrading World Of Warcraft from ANY VERSION down to 1.0.0
Back up your WoW directory to somewhere that is safe.By default, its located in Local Disk C:/ < Program Files < World Of Warcraft
Open up your WoW Directory
In the WoW directory, enter the DATA folder. (Local Disk C:/ < Program Files < World Of Warcraft < Data.)
Delete the files labeled Patch.mpq, Patch-2.mpq, Patch-3.mpq (If Patch-2 or Patch-3 Isnt in there, its O.K.)
DO NOT DELETE ANYTHING ELSE IN THE WoW DIRECTORY!!!
Download the 1.0.0 WoW .exe from one of the links at the bottom of this post.
In the ROOT of the World Of Warcraft folder (Local Disk C:/ < Program Files < World Of Warcraft) Place the file that you just downloaded. It will ask you if you would like to Overwrite the current WoW Icon. Choose "Yes".
Open up NoGGIT and have some fun.
When you are done using NoGGIT or w/e this whole downgrade was for, just take your backed-up copy of WoW and replace the edited one.

First post updated, Complete guide was re-written by me and now theres 4 different download links.
Added 1.0.0 to 1.12 patch.
Is the WoW.exe enUS? i use enGB, will it make a diffrence if i load up wow ?
any chance of getting a guide on how to make our own private server for the 1.0.0 wow?
I replaced the WoW.exe and the 2.4 version disapered and I cant find it.
I really dont see this working, because Common.mpq after BC (i believe) contains all the stuff from all the pre-bc patches, like ZG, AQ, etc. IDK could be wrong, if i am lemme know
Think you are right as ZG AQ Naxx Mara(think it was added in some early patch)

this actually works GREAT
or reinstall wow, much faster
Trying now, will give feedback after the 10 minutes it takes to backup WoW T_T
Alright, just did this. Didn't work at all, nogg-it instantly crashes. Also can't get into WoW.
Edit: I guess I should give more information than "It doesn't work" - I did EXACTLY as the guide said, I was left with "Common.MPQ" and "Expansion.MPQ" - Replaced the WoW.exe, when I tried going in the .exe it says I'm missing "fmod.dll" - and won't even load up. When I try to run the 1-1.12 patch, it says I'm missing the Interface.MPQ. I also tried deleting expansion.mpq, and it did nothing.
I'm gonna try to find my old WoW CD's and see if that will do it, I don't doubt this guide works, just not degrading a current version.
