"You would need an EU copy of WoW and its expansions to play there". This is flase.You can run EU and US versions from the same install. All you need to do is change 1 line in one configuration file and 2 lines in another. Overall you have to change 6 characters to switch between the two.In your main WoW folder there is a file called realmlist.wtf open it up and there are two lines in it. set realmlist us.logon.worldofwarcraft.com and then another that looks similar. Change the us.logon to eu.logon for both lines. keep the rest of the stuff.next there is a file in your wow/wtf directory called config.wtf. In that file is 1 line that says the same thing set realmlist blah blah. Change it the same way to say eu.logon.worldofwarcraft.comHaving done both of these things you'll be able to login to EU realms. You'll know if it was successful because your US account user name and password won't work anymore. Playing on both EU and US requires two subscriptions. Creating a new account on either side requires getting a CD key from a box copy of the game. from http://forums.wcradio.com/index.php?topic=1103.0

I'm pretty sure that's what he meant. Box copy comes with the CD Key that you'd need to play on the EU realms.

Okay, you can use the same install, but you still need a CD-Key for the main game and all of its expansions, so you're still paying money for them all a second time.
