to fix your custom weapons bug

download DBCUtil
and use navicat or something like that to see what these fields are
using a simple text editor you add in your items in the dbc file witch is now a csv file

so lets say u want a custom frostmourn to work on ur server


field4 is always -1

then turn it back into a dbc useing DBCUtil

your custom items should now work

then make your custom mpq file such as

where xx is your language en
and XX is your contry GB US and so forthe and so on

make sure you make a subfolder in your patch called DBFilesClient

remove the patch if you are going to play retail

Just a few things wrong, it doesn't matter what the patch is named I can name it omfgjesus.MPQ and it will load what matters is the .MPQ being capitalized, Field4 is not always -1 and actually search the dbc there are cases where it isn't -1. Marforius each player has to download the patch for it to work for them.
It's actually much easier to make a separate table for your custom items limiting down to those columns the dbc wants and exporting it as a csv and copy/pasting the **** into the file.

So I'm not 100% sure if I'm doing this all correct, my only created item ( a weapon, 2 handed axe ) so far has the, "?" icon and displays an error message that "a melee weapon is required" for divine storm ( and all weapon dependent spells) on my Pally. Even after I...

- Created Item in Mysql database.

- Converted item.dbc to .csv and added in [100001,2,1,-1,5,65153,0,0,] ( My items info ).

- Converted back to .dbc and put it in my ArcEmu dir.

- Created patch-enUS-9.MPQ with the item.dbc file in a DBFilesClient sub-folder, and placed that in my client dir.

I suspect I may be creating the .MPQ file with the wrong settings or something.

This isn't something that blizzard patched at 3.3.5a is it? Any advice and or help would be greatly appreciated.


EDIT: It figures I find a fix a few hours after I post about it, thanks to the folks at and MPQEditor I added my item.dbc file to the patch-4.MPQ provided by heroeswow which I had already been using to enable all classes for all races in client and viola!

So if anyone is having trouble with custom items and or class/race combos feel free to ask me for help!
