With this week’s patch 9.0.2, we’re adding native Apple Silicon support to World of Warcraft. This means that the WoW 9.0.2 client will run natively on ARM64 architecture, rather than under emulation via Rosetta.

We’re pleased to have native day one support for Apple Silicon.

While our testing has been successful, we’re highly aware of the nature of day one support with updates like this. Please let us know if you run into any issues that may be related to Apple Silicon in our Mac Technical Support forum.

Thank you very much.

We have updated WoW Classic to make the NPC Archmage Angela Dosantos available at Light’s Hope Chapel.
Now, if you wish to complete your attunement to Naxxramas in advance of the raid going live on December 3, you can visit the Archmage and take care of it.
Light be with you!

Curseforge Update – Addon Updates Suspended During Shadowlands Launch
Curseforge let the community know that they will suspend manual moderation of addons on 11/24 and go read only on 11/30, with service to be restored in December. This will only affect authors updating their addons, players will still be able to download the latest version that was live before read only mode.

  • On 11/24, will be temporarily closed until early December. No new cases will be able to be created on or after this date until the transition to Overwolf is complete. In the interim, any support requests should be tweeted to Curseforge.
  • On 11/24, manual project moderation will be paused. All content requiring manual moderation submitted on or after this date will be queued to be reviewed once manual moderation is reinstated.
  • On 11/30, Curseforge will enter read-only mode at 6AM PST. Curseforge is expected to stay in read-only mode throughout the week, and full functionality is expected to return by early December.

Once CurseForge is transferred to Overwolf — which we expect to begin on 11/30 — Overwolf will be reopening support and manual moderation as quickly as possible. Their current plan is to have everything back up and running by early December.
