Description:The error pops up when you enter wrong username or password (remember that usernames have to be in form of "[email protected]" [without quotes]).
Fix: Enter correct credentials. If you still get the error it likely means that you have forgotten password or username, contact the staff if you cannot recover it.

Description: The error pops up when you can't connect to the server, because of invalid "SET portal (server address)" line in your (Wow root folder)/WTF/ file or the server is simply down or unavailable.

Fix #1: Make sure (WoW root directory)/WTF/ has portal set to (e.g. SET portal "").
Fix #2: If it is and the error still happens, make sure that the Freedom WoD server isn't down (ask others if they are able to connect).
Fix #2: If others can connect fine then issue lies with your internet (e.g. try clearing DNS cache).

Description: You usually get CAS error or Error #134 if you have corrupt/incomplete WoD client OR you have file-permission troubles. Freedom WoD server uses WoD client.

Fix #1: Make sure that you have:
  • FreedomWoW.exe and tc_bundle.txt in your WoW root directory.
  • WoW/Data folder with size being around 28.7 GB (30,910,745,521 bytes)
  • Following FreedomEssentialsPatch DBFilesClient files:

Additional WoW/Data file integrity info - you should have:
  • WoW/Data/config folder containing 59 Files, 114 Folders summing up to about 694 KB (711,574 bytes) size.
  • WoW/Data/data folder with 62 files summing up to about 28.6 GB (30,723,181,539 bytes). More detailed:
    • shmem file with size of 11,280 bytes (11.0 KB)
    • data.000 ... data.028 files and each one of them should have size of 1,048,576 KB with exception of data.028, which is only 624,537 KB big.
    • Following .idx files with completely equal size of 576 KB (589,824 bytes) for each one of them:

  • WoW/Data/indices folder with 666 files of varying sizes summing up to about 178 MB (186,852,408 bytes) size.
  • Empty folder WoW/Data/patch

If you have something different than what I described above then your download got corrupt or interrupted mid-way and the only sure-way fix is to redownload everything.

Fix #2: Right-click on your entire WoW folder and go to properties. Uncheck read-only attribute and apply the changes. Then try to launch WoW as Administrator.

If you still have problems, then make a thread about it in Help/Support section of the forums.

Fix #1: Creating a Shortcut for the Freedom Client: (Due to DB changes we must now make a shortcut for the client in order to launch Freedom)
  • Right click and make a shortcut of your FreedomWoW application. 
  • Right click the new shortcut, and select 'Properties'.
  • In the "Target:" box, add -uid wow_enus to the end of it with a space like shown in the screenshot above.
  • Apply, and use the shortcut to get on Freedom until a server-side fix is applied. 
No need to delete or remove anyting.

Troubleshooting Edit: Depending on your windows OS, you may have quotations. Try adding it on the outside (Ex: FreedomWoW.exe" --uid wow_enus). If that doesn't work, then try removing the quotations.
