01: Basic WoD modding information
« on: March 08, 2017, 12:29:58 am »

Hello everyone and welcome to the first part of this tutorial series. In this tutorial I'll explain how you can modify Warlords of Draenor.
First off, here is a list of things that you'll in order to get started:
  • A full WoD 6.2.4 - Base of every modding setup
  • Casc Explorer - To extract content from your WoW Client
  • WDBX Editor - Used to modify DBC and DB2 Files
  • Patched WoW Executables - Info can be found here
This list will be expanded as the tutorial progresses.

About the WoD client
As opposed to WOTLK,WoD uses the so called CASC format. This has some benefits and some downsides. Currently there is no way for us to modify CASC directly, but don't worry, there's a diffrent way. The executable from the list above allows you to simply place your files in your Client folder. Your client will load all files from there.

About resources and Tools
Currently some things can only be achievedby modding a 3.3.5 Client and converting content up to 6.2.4. I have faith tin that we'll have proper tools in the future. Until then I'll explain it this way and update tutorials once there's a better way.

If you have questions regarding WoD modding. Feel free to create a topic in the proper section or PM me. I'll answer once I have time.
