How to update for the next builds ?
Open a command prompt in the folder where "Battle.net Launcher.exe" is located. (shift + right-click on that folder, "open command prompt window here" or "open powershell window here")
Then type "'.\Battle.net Launcher.exe' --game=wow_beta --install"
You should see the battle.net application start, with a fill bar under the WoW icon on the left.


How to extract data from the build ?
Step 1 is getting a txt file with the names of the files in the build. 
Get "listfile.txt" from here, it will always be the most updated one:

Thanks to marlamin, another website, stiven, and other amazing people.
Step 2 is getting CascExplorer to actually explorer the content of the build :
- Source :
You must post a reply below to unlock this link
- Compiled binaries :
You must post a reply below to unlock this link
You can pretty much give a thanks to  TOM_RUS for all his work.
Step 3 is you replace the listfile in cascexplorer's folder with the latest one, select BfA's folder when opening storage, and right-click on the right panel to extract stuff.


How to view models ?
- Use OBJExporter from Marlamin : (tested working)
- Use WowModelViewer :
Quote:1. download wmv
2. go to \WoWModelViewer\games\wow 
copy paste 7.3 folder
and rename it 8.0 
downlaod listfile from BfA 
and replace listfile in 8.0 
and normally it's supposed to work.


(thank you "Nεkǿ ѕΛη" from discord)
- Convert to legion/wotlk and open them with your previous tool (noggit and stuff?)


How to view BLPs (pictures) ?
I've been using BLPNG Converter for a while and it's just awesome :

How to view db2 files ?

Now Wdbx should be the proper tool : 


How to model edit / swap ?
.wmos don't work well with legion or wotlk, but the rest should be good (not an expert but people seem to be doing fine so far)
Step 1 : extract what you want to use
Step 2 : recreate the file's tree in your legion folder.
Step 3 : if swapping, rename file B with file A's name, where file A is the original file and file B the file you want to have instead of file A. 
Step 4 : use arctium's client launcher on your usual legion client
=> voilà
Swapping example: I wanted to have kultirasdungeon instead of deephome. So I created the folder : "WoWLegion\World\Maps\Deephome". Then I renamed kultirasdungeon_XX_XX.adt to deephome_XX_XX.adt and put these files in the Deephome folder. Then using arctium's client launcher, Deephome was replaced with kultirasdungeon !
(thank you King48488)
Bulk rename utility is quite useful here to rename everything in a go :

Want to take a quick look at the new minimaps ?
Check Marlamin's awesome website : [url=


Want map coordinates ?
: toggle "enable technical details" and click on the minimap  => the box will show you the coordinates. (thank you Marlamin)
OR use Dovah's own small tool : (JIT error if x=32 or y=32, but otherwise it works well)


That *should* cover most of the basic questions.
Got anything else in mind? Feel free to ask stuff, or share other info I could/should add to the OP !

Note : this guide was made for the first alpha builds, but should still be accurate for 8.0.1.26310 Big Grin
