Vanilla World of Warcraft, also known as Vanilla WoW or Vanilla, refers to the state of the game World of Warcraft prior to any of its expansions.

Vanilla World of Warcraft servers are compatible with clients at patch 1.12.2 or earlier. Patches later than 1.12.2 modify gameplay elements whether or not a player has expansions installed. For this reason, vanilla World of Warcraft is not the same as playing on an expansion server without the expansions.
