Download new 8.2.5 client here. Custom gameobject patch has been disabled temporary as we're fixing the way custom patch is streamed to the client. Custom gobs will be back within 24 hours.

@  dr3ad : (01 November 2019 - 10:26 PM)

We updated to 8.2.5 as we had some issues due to Blizzcon today removing 8.2.0 version from their content delivery network and hence half of people getting "Streaming error". We will post new 8.2.5 Wow.exe in couple of minutes, you just need to drag it into your existing RPHTiny/_retail_ folder.

@  dr3ad : (31 October 2019 - 05:19 PM)

Make sure to delete your cache folder if you experience freeze on character selection screen.

@  dr3ad : (30 October 2019 - 10:59 PM)

If you had problem where your RPHLauncher wouldn't launch at all, try again now.

@  dr3ad : (26 October 2019 - 02:57 AM)

Fixed crashes that were just happening due to crashy spell. Server up in 2 mins.

Getting invalid credentials? Make sure you're not logging in with forum account!

==== ONLINE====

Battle for Azeroth 8.3.0 (Build 33369)

- 64-bit Windows (all versions that support Battle for Azeroth)
- Winrar or 7zip

How to play on RPH:
1) Start by creating an account here (forum account is separate!).
2) Download our client here It contains everything you need in order to connect and play. YOU MUST USE RPH LAUNCHER, NOT WOW.EXE
4) Run RPH Launcher.exe (do not run Wow.exe) and log in-game with your username@rph.org and respective password.

INFO: On ~25 mbit internet speed it will take about 20 minutes from starting RPH Launcher.exe until you can finally see other people in-game, so please be patient as all data is streamed.

How to play on RPH with old 8.2.5 RPHTiny (if you're new player skip this):

1) Download update here
2) Extract RPHFix_830.rar into your RPHTiny_BfA folder, hit replace when asked.
3) Run RPH Launcher.exe (do not run Wow.exe) and log in-game with your username@rph.org and respective password.


  • I ran Wow.exe and now I can't login?

A: You need to run RPH Launcher.exe to be able to login.

  • I ran RPH Launcher.exe but nothing happens?

A: Open Task Manager and check if Wow.exe is there, if it is then just leave it and give it some time (20 minutes on average if you have 25 mbit internet)

  • My WoW freezes, what do I do?

A: Close Wow.exe or give it some time to load (see question above)

  • Says invalid information when you try to log in?

A: Check that you're logging in with username@RPH.org and not just username.

  • Getting error BLZ51900003?

A: Make sure you entered your account information correctly.

  • Getting error BLZ51901017 or BLZ51901016 (unable to connect)?

A: Go into WTF folder and find Config.7z, extract its contains into the folder and then hit replace.

  • All players seem invisible and you can't see them?

A: Client is trying to stream data so please give it some time.

  • Other players missing equipment?

"Never done an honest day's work in your life for all that coin you're carrying, eh lad?"

I'm sorry, what? "I'm saying you've got the coin, but you didn't earn a septim of it honestly. I can tell."

How could you possibly know that? "It's all about sizing up your mark, lad. The way they walk, what they're wearing. It's a dead giveaway."

My wealth is none of your business. "Oh, but that's where you're wrong, lad. Wealth is my business. Maybe you'd like a taste?"

What do you have in mind? "I've got a bit of an errand to perform, but I need an extra pair of hands. And in my line of work, extra hands are well-paid."

What do I have to do? "Simple.... I'm going to cause a distraction and you're going to steal Madesi's silver ring from a strongbox under his stand. Once you have it, I want you to place it in Brand-Shei's pocket without him noticing."

Why plant the ring on Brand-Shei? "There's someone that wants to see him put out of business permanently. That's all you need to know. Now, you tell me when you're ready and we'll get started."

Why are we doing this to Brand-Shei? "We've been contracted to make sure Brand-Shei remember not to meddle in affairs that aren't his own. Now, since we're not the Dark Brotherhood, we're not going to kill him, we're just going to make sure he sits in the prisons for a few days."

How am I supposed to do all of this? "Do you want me to hold your hand as well? You're going to have to sneak to Madesi's stall and use your lockpick on the strongbox. Then when you have the ring, you pickpocket Brand-Shei and leave it behind."

I'm ready. Let's get this started...

Wait, which step do you need to follow if you were playing on 8.2.5?

Me and a friend redownloaded the RPH tiny thing, and whilst it worked just fine for me... My friend did not share the same luck.


Apparently she's getting some sort of error about Initializing CAS for some reason. We made sure that her folder is located at the root of C: just as mine. We literally have the same thing in our computers, but for some reason it does not work for her. Here's a picture of the error she's getting.



If you guys know why this is happening, and can help us out, it'd be of great help!


Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the update!


But I'm runnning into a but of an issue. Each time I launch the Custom Patch Launcher: 3jWgVdG.png

It says: Ther promgram can't start because VCRUNTIME140_1.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this issue."


Granted, the launcher still starts depite this error, but is there a way to fix it? Or it's because I'm running this in Windows 8.1?

Make sure you have the latest VC runetimes. It's likely the 2015 you are missing.
