World of Warcraft emulator? Let’s take a look to all available server application projects, for each different WoW client version.
6.x branch of TrinityCore has been created almost 11 months ago and according to the TrinityCore forum download counter, the 3.3.5 is still the most used branch by the TrinityCore community.
In fact, all of the download counters (
