so i finnaly couldnt wait for blizzard to live up to their promise and
allow US cd-key users to "see" european servers, so i got a hold of EU
cd-key so i can play with some of my friends...question, i have us
retail version...how do i convert it to be safely played on eu
servers...i know there are like 2-3 things taht need to be changed, but
i am not 100% sure to what...so realmlist.wtf has to be changed to logon
to EU server and also interface.mpq wow.ini file to set correct region i
guess...is there a guide or something cause i dont wanna mess up stuff
and not be able to play :)  tnx

When I tested this, I only had to change the realmlist.wtf file, and
everything worked fine for me:

set realmlist eu.logon.worldofwarcraft.com

If there are other things that need to be changed, I don't know of them. I
had no problem using my EU characters with the US retail version after
making this one change.

But it does require a US CD-key to make this work, right?

Well, yeah in your case. In Michael Vondung's case (and my own) it would be
the other way around since weøre in Europe.

What I meant was to ask if I'm right in assuming that you need a key from
the other side of the pond if you want to play on the side of the pond? Or
if I could just make this change in my EU version and play on US servers
without having to buy a US version of the game?
