Shadowlands Connection Guide MAC & WINDOWS
Last Updated 8 months ago


With our Shadowlands realm opening, you will need a new client to connect! Do not worry, we made it as simple as possible for you to do so, no headache guaranteed!

NB: The full client downloads every game data right away: it takes longer to download and requires software like BitTorrent, but once it's done you will have the whole game ready. The minimal client is smaller, faster to download, but will then download missing data as you're playing, slowing you down and extending your loading times


  • You are using the launcher:
    • Just start it, and you will see the Shadowlands section on the bottom left: press download.
  • You don't have the game yet:
    • Here is the full torrent (if possible try to use this one rather than the minimal one, but 
      you will need torrent software like BitTorrent)
    • Here is the minimal client link: Click here. Just extract it and start the .exe!

Please note: The first time you will open the FS Shadowlands client, if it wasn't downloaded from the full torrent, it will take a bit of time (depending on your connexion speed) to download the missing files, but in the meantime, nothing will appear on your screen, that's normal! Do not open it 43 times, just once, and then wait a bit. Once it's done, you will be fully set up!


  • Sadly, the client for MAC is not released yet, and I'm afraid there's currently no estimation on when it will be finished. There are some workarounds that make it possible to play on MAC, but depending on the method the performance impact will definitely be noticeable.

If you have any trouble installing the client, you can contact our staff members on the support channel of our Discord, or you can make a support ticket here
