When you head over to Google, or any Search Engine that you use, if you do a search for playing Warcraft on a mobile device, ISO or Android, you get a host of options, even an article saying that Blizzard did at one point played with the idea of playing World of Warcraft on mobile.
So the first thing you might be thinking, is this an April Fool’s joke? No it’s not and yes while I know what today is, I wanted to party share this today to trick some people, as who will really read the bold part and to share this with people who are like me; have very limited time to play.
For me I play the auction house and right now I’m in the middle of starting an epic glyph wall. This wall is going to be two deep, 6 and 6 of each; while I’ll leave the details of what I’m doing with that wall to another post, the reason why today’s post is a big deal because I had to buyout all the herbs, I pretty much went from 110k to 80k within a few hours of buying herbs. I didn’t care what price, I just pick up everything there was at the time and then some.
Since yesterday and into today I’ve been milling and crafting inks, getting ready to start the first wave of my wall hopefully tonight if not tomorrow before I go back to work. The honest part about this was, I wasn’t even at my computer while milling.
Sadly right now I don’t have any good screenshots to show or even prove that I was doing this, but I was and I’ll tell you how you can do this. The first thing to know that you can only do this at home, or within your network or Wifi.
Step 1. Go download the app RD Client.
Step 2. On your PC, make sure you enable Remote Access connection.
Step 3. On your mobile smart phone, start RD Client, enter your PC name and username and password and connect.
You can now open World of Warcraft from your phone.
Pretty sweet isn’t? There are a number of guides online on how to set up RD Client. I want to point out that there are a number of ways and likely better options to use remote desktop on your smart phone to access the game (or any other app on your computer) for me it was a little slow and choppy, but that was alright because all I was using it for was milling.
As I said there are other options out there, but RD Client doesn’t require me to install anything or have anything on my PC running, the PC itself just has to be running. The screen was slow and choppy at time, but I run a laptop with low space and issue. On a good running gaming PC, I’m sure the connection would be fine. I’m using a S4 Rooted 16GB version for my smart phone, so results for you might be better or worst.
Today I had things to do with my family, cooking and what not, so I basically every chance I had would have my phone up, and was stabbing the screen. You don’t have to worry about this being against the Terms of Service for the game, because I had the game opened on my PC and I was touching the screen for the keystroke was one press pre-action. Which is the rule, so don’t worry about that.
I don’t recommend using this to do anything more than that unless you’re using a better option than what I’m using and have a better PC and stronger WiFi Connection. I plan on making a video to showcase this fully hopefully in the next few days; hopefully a quick video tomorrow. That’s all I have for you today and if you have any questions or better options, please share them in the comments below.
