Finding a download link for a Vanilla WoW Client that actually works can be a bit of a jungle. A lot of the listed clients around the internet are either outdated or dead-links. Through this page, you can find actual classic files that work. All you have to do after downloading, is to extract the downloaded zip file, and change the realmlist.
Here you can find different sources of downloads for the the Vanilla World of Warcraft client, specifically patch 1.12.1. These clients are pre-installed so all you should need to do is extract them from the zip file and update your realmlist to the server of your choice.
TorrentsNote that there have been many reports lately that Blizzard does file copyright strikes with ISPs for people using torrents to download their older clients. There are a couple of different options to help with this, we recommend using either a cloud based torrent client such as Bittorent or a VPN (Proton VPN is a solid choice, they have a decent free tier also).

I deleted 4.3.4 and 3.3.5a clients, because I think "This is end. Battle.net will never be implemented, not all basic functional implemented". Now I downloading 3.3.5a, because I believe, MaNGOS team will implement all basic functional (all WoW excluding scripting, but including code system and rewards).
