World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade is the first expansion set for the MMORPG World of Warcraft.

The expansion's name refers to the return of the "Burning Legion"; a vast army of demons being one of the main antagonist forces in the Warcraft-universe and whose last invasion was defeated in Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos. This legion and its allies are the main enemy which players will fight against in The Burning Crusade. In addition to some new areas on Azeroth, this expansion mainly features the ravaged world of Outland which the Burning Legion and other powerful beings control.

The Doom Lord Kazzak reopened the Dark Portal to Outland, flooding Azeroth with the ravenous demons of the Burning Legion. Expeditions from the Horde and Alliance, reinforced by their new blood elf and draenei allies, passed through the gateway to stop the invasion at its source. On Outland's desiccated Hellfire Peninsula, the Alliance discovered several of their heroes who had crossed through the portal many years before, while the Horde made contact with the Mag'har—'uncorrupted' orcs who had not participated in their race's original invasion of Azeroth. The expedition into Outland dragged Horde and Alliance armies further into conflict with the agents of the Legion and the lieutenants of Illidan Stormrage, who had claimed the shattered realm for his own.

2.4.3 Mac App Replacement (Intel only) - (Download #13)

World_of_Warcraft 2.4.3 - Mac App was created by @vanillalad
Native 2.4.3 World of, runs on all x86 macOS versions, even latest one. It is not running wine. The only person that tested it except me is Lillecarl from CMaNGOS discord, but it should work for everyone.
In the past people have said that the issue has been OpenGL and other non issues, but the actual problem is just some bug in the World of causing it to run as PowerPC even when it's ran on a x86 system. I removed PowerPC code from the mac World of binary to make it run on x86. This means it will only run on x86 macOS. It will not work on PowerPC macOS.

Architecture: PPC x86 (Windows)

Thx for release, but I spent a long time searching for patches for the Mac version and did not manage to test both patches and work on private servers.

- Installed without problems with the help of mounting in Toast 10.
- Starts up and runs on iMac 5G

This is the old CD installer, useful for those that play on emulated servers... system requirements will follow.
