rchiveCraft is a World of Warcraft community fan-based website.
A place for you to explore the lost contents that World of Warcraft used to offer. Contents that has been lost through out the years and are no longer accessible due to past changes with the official World of Warcraft website. The older contents simply did not meet the quality standards to stay on the newer and more modern World of Warcraft website we have today. Contents such as Screenshots, Videos, Wallpapers and much more. Some of these contents traces back as far as 1999 and all the way to the end of Wrath of the Lich King expansion.

Most of these lost contents can still be found today with the help of Wayback Machine, Reddit, Imgur and even Github. But having several lost contents of World of Warcraft scattered all over different websites can be very difficult to navigate through. So we have created our very own website that puts them all into one place. We have archived everything that is lost or extremely hard to find right here on ArchiveCraft so that you can find it all with ease and enjoy the nostalgia it brings.

ArchiveCraft dedicates and archives only from the three iconic eras of World of Warcraft, Vanilla, Burning Crusade and Wrath of the Lich King. The reason why is because these three expansions are what we consider to be the most iconic, valuable and most loved. It was the peak of the game and made the most impact to the World of Warcraft history and reputation that it had. Therefor we do not go beyond archiving Wrath of the Lich King.

We also offer everything we have to be downloaded in .ZIP and or other formats and to be viewed right here on the website.
