World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King is the second expansion set for the massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) World of Warcraft, following The Burning Crusade.

In the wake of the Sunwell's purification, a period of suspicious silence swept over the world. As if on cue, the undead Scourge launched a massive assault against the cities and towns of Azeroth, this time extending its reach far beyond the Eastern Kingdoms. Under pressure to respond with a full army, Warchief Thrall deployed an expedition force to Northrend led by Overlord Garrosh Hellscream. Meanwhile, the missing human king Varian Wrynn at last returned to Stormwind City and reclaimed his crown. He sent an equally powerful Alliance army, commanded by Bolvar Fordragon, to defeat the Lich King—and any Horde forces who would stand in their way.

The Alliance and Horde (led by Dranosh Saurfang) eventually led a combined offensive on the Wrathgate, the entrance to the Lich King's fortress of Icecrown Citadel. Before they could succeed however, Grand Apothecary Putress and his Royal Apothecary Society followers (renegade Forsaken) unleashed a new plague that killed friend and foe alike, while his traitorous counterpart, the dreadlord Varimathras, seized the Undercity in a coup that nearly killed Sylvanas. The usurpers were slain for their vile deeds by armies of the Alliance and Horde and the Forsaken capital was restored. The debacle however, created suspicion among the Horde regarding Sylvanas's loyalties. At the Wrathgate, many brave Alliance soldiers died at the hands of the Forsaken's Royal Apothecary Society; including King Varian's dear friend Bolvar Fordragon. Varian, who had always been wary of the orcs, discovered that the Royal Apothecary Society had been developing the new plague for years. The events that transpired during the battle for the Undercity convinced the human king that the Horde had been left unchecked for too long and he becomes hostile to the Horde for the rest of the campaign in Northrend.

@soudesune I'm pretty certain these WoW files are all clients (or installers of clients) that, by design, have to rely on some server, so I believe that the answer is no. But various WoW private servers do exist, and these may work with them.

The closest to such an online game with local and LAN options that I know of is Diablo and Diablo II, also available for Mac. (9 and X.)

Questions for ye all: this is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game.

Can it be played locally (or, better still, on a LAN) without an Internet connection? If so, is it any good? Is a party of 1 any fun?

Is this download essentially a client to the server farms that host the game or is it a full game in its own right?

Last update that confirmed supports PowerPC was 3.3.5a on June 29, 2010, and was also the last pre-Cataclysm update; the next patch (4.0.1) on October 12, 2010 apparently dropped PowerPC support.

If anyone can find a version of the WoW.app up to 3.3.5a, that would be welcome.
