I have been playing WoW for years, accumulating a number of add-ons and have tweaked many game settings. Now I have built a new gaming PC and have installed WoW on it.
I would now like to copy (or move), as completely as possible, all my add-ons and all my settings (both for add-on related and other), preferably for all my characters, to the new computer, so that my WoW environment there is as identical as possible to the original computer (except, hopefully, faster and with better graphics).
Could you give me some advice as to the technical steps to accomplish this? For example which folders I should copy where and in what order, etc.
I am running Windows Vista on my old computer and Windows 7 on my new.
I actually have a Curse add-on premium account, which claims to be able to “sync” add-on settings. I have activated that feature on my old computer, but I cannot find any detailed explanation on exactly how to use it. For example, should I first login on my new computer, and then run the sync, or should I first sync and then login?
Should I copy
C:\Users\Public\Games\World of Warcraft\WTF\Account\* from one computer to the other? Before ever logging in? Before running Curse syncing?
This might sound trivial to some, but I have tech-savvy friends who have failed in copying settings satisfactorily when attempting to just copy the most obvious folders.
