    It is almost impossible to get cd keys from key generators (keygen, 1:1000 chance), but getting a cd key online is quite easy (google). After you found a list of cd key comes the testing. It is really slow if you do it with the client (changing the key and connecting to, so I suggest getting a StealthBot or a cd key tester to do the job. (StealthBot is safe to use, the tester isn't) Of course if you have a legal cdkey testing is not required.

    Cd-key changers:


    Feel free to post your unneeded/extra RoC cd keys here :)
    But do not add comments begging for cd keys!

    This is cool and all, but whenever I launch it, all I get is the Exit button. Why?

  • 3ICE Says:

    The cd key changer tool is quite dated (2003), but it works fine for me, I just tried it today:
    Screenshots also added to blog post.

    Edited by 3ICE on May 27th, 2015 at 4 pm: The latest patch broke the tools unfortunately. The were working in 2012, but now it's 2015. Sorry.

  • Many Men Says:

    RoC doesnt work, you type everything in and then it stops responding. Might be a scam as it takes your CD key then stops responding. This needs to be fixed or removed as it may tarnish your reputation.

  • 3ICE Says:

    I'm not worried about that. I trust the RoC CD key changer.
    I have used the app in the past and all my RoC keys are still mine.

    You can verify it doesn't steal your key by monitoring it in WireShark or a similar network monitoring tool. If it makes any outgoing connections while it runs, you know it's a scam. Otherwise it isn't.

    Edited by 3ICE: I don't know who made the cd key changers, so I really should have checked them for dirty tricks before mirroring them. Too bad most wc3 sites are now dead. Mine however will be here for a long time.

  • Dana Says:

    I'm having some trouble with RoC cd key changer, "change the key" button doesn't show on my computer. Any thoughts?

  • Daniel "3ICE" Berezvai Says:

    Yes, most unfortunate. Sadly, it is a problem I can't solve.

    Unless you can downpatch (and then the cd key changer will work), you'll have to reinstall.

  • tata Says:


  • Daniel "3ICE" Berezvai Says:

    It worked!

  • Shane Says:

    HELP ME AND FAST! Every time i type in a key for the TFT key changer it freezes and goes unresponsive! Please tell me how to fix this or is it that this is a horrible application to change cd keys??!?!?!?!

  • Daniel "3ICE" Berezvai Says:


    You don't get to make demands like that…
    At least a "please" is expected. And all caps is considered shouting, which is frowned upon here.

    Yes, unfortunately these applications are quite old and do not work with the latest version of the game anymore.

    Reinstalling the expansion with the correct key is the only solution I know off the top of my head.

    The comments above might offer more insight into the situation.

    How to do this on a mac?

  • asfd Says:

    How to change the CD key on a Mac? I installed WC3 using Wineskin.

  • Daniel "3ICE" Berezvai Says:

    There are no MAC CD key changers that I know of.

    But the windows tools should work through Wineskin just fine. As long as Wine emulates a proper windows-like file system and accompanying registry.

    There is a way to run WC3 and the key changers in the same wrapper, even at the same time, if necessary.
    Its not extremely clean or straightforward, but it can be done. There are three main options; A batch script, a custom EXE launcher, or a Menbar script. The custom exe is too much work, and I know nothing about Menbar. So I would try to use use a batch script.

  • Renji Says:

    I know my Key works but it always says that there isn't enough space on the CD?!?
    So it doesnt change anything

  • Daniel "3ICE" Berezvai Says:

    Yes, the latest patch broke the cd key changers featured in my above post. And unfortunately no replacement is available yet (to my knowledge).

  • holyflygon Says:

    hello i keep getting there is not enough space and i was wondering if this was ever fix or if there is a way to fix it so i can play online. Please help

  • Daniel "3ICE" Berezvai Says:

    Have you tried to free up some space?

    The installer requires about 1 GB. (Editing 500MB mpq files is storage space intensive as a full copy needs to be created…)

    Or is it an incorrectly thrown error?

    Edited by 3ICE: Just to clarify: Even though the CD key is only a few bytes, you still need (temporary) room for several gigabytes of data. So yes, changing your CD key requires a lot of free disk space. It will be used for copying two or three (500MB each) mpq files for a few seconds only.

  • Vule Says:

    Hey can anyone give me code that isnt banned from multyplayer ? I have original code for reign of chaos but i dont have frozen throne and i cant play multyplayer at all

  • Daniel "3ICE" Berezvai Says:

    Hi Vule,

    This blog post is rather outdated unfortunately. Please look for newer posts, perhaps at other blogs. (2010, when I wrote this article, was 7 years ago, after all.)
    I'm quite sure cd keys are still available online, you just have to try a few from page 10+ of Google. Don't click the first result, as everyone else does that and those keys are always in use / already banned. You did the right thing, coming to my website. The smaller, least popular websites you find, the better. Sorry I don't have any cd keys here. It's better business for me to sell them than give them away for free. Want to buy a cheap cd key? Paypal me some money and I'll email you a key, guaranteed working. Here is the payment page, I run a "pay what you want" business model (via donations):

  • Britannicus Says:

    Hey, do you still have keys for Reign of Chaos and Frozen Throne? And would these work on Battle.Net as well? :)

  • Daniel "3ICE" Berezvai Says:

    Yes, I do. & Yes, they would.

  • Britannicus Says:

    Nice, I would love to get one!

    Is the PayPal from the last answer still up and running?

    If yes, I'm afraid I could only send a bit over a Dollar right now, might be able to donate more in a few weeks. :)

  • Britannicus Says:

    Bumping because I would really love to get one!

  • Daniel "3ICE" Berezvai Says:

    Yes, it is. Sorry I didn't reply sooner. Thanks for the bump, it reminded me to answer.

  • Britannicus Says:

    That's alright, I'm sure this website isn't the only thing you do. ;)

    Just sent you around a dollar, again, sorry I couldn't do more right now! :/

  • Neeri Says:

    I need to change my ROC CD-KEY because I mistyped a letter when copying…

  • 3ICE Says:

    That's not possible. If you mistype anything in the CD key it tells you right away and prevents the install from proceeding until you fix the typo. This verification is done with a CRC at the end of the CD key.

  • Bloody Says:

    Hey, I tried changing my Fronzen Throne CD-Key because I typed a wrong one in it and the online isn't working, but all I get is that I don't have enough space, but at this moment I have exactly 666GB free (And yes, that is the memory I have left for real). If anyone got any idea on how to fix this, I will be extremely thankfull

  • Daniel "3ICE" Berezvai Says:

    I'm afraid a complete reinstall will be necessary to fix this.

    Back up your replays, save games, downloaded maps, campaign progress, etc, both from your documents folder and from the install directory. And then uninstall Warcraft 3.

    Install it again with the working key. Copy back your data.

    Sorry about only having this one, outdated cd key changer tool. It stopped working a few patches ago. An error I cannot fix.

    Edit: You probably only have 4-8 GB of memory. That 600 GB you are seeing is called storage space.

  • Anonymous Says:

    I need both cd keys. If you have a pair I would like to donate for them.

  • Daniel "3ICE" Berezvai Says:

    Sure thing! I'll undercut G2A's lowest prices by 3$.

    Donate here:

    Delivery guaranteed within 24 hours.

  • Daniel "3ICE" Berezvai Says:

    Update 1: I just checked G2A, turns out their keys are quite expensive. Also "Password cannot contain username" when trying to checkout… Oh well. I wasn't going to buy from them anyway. Here's the cheapest key available there:

    My Basket | Packshot | Product name | Unit price

    Warcraft 3 Reign of Chaos Blizzard Key GLOBAL
    Availability: Instant
    7.46 €
    You are buying this product from: Guiliermo

    Warcraft 3 The Frozen Throne Key Blizzard GLOBAL
    7.46 €

    Total: 14.92 €

    I promised 3$ undercut but I'll give you more than twice that; 3€ discount from each key, so only donate 8.92 € total.

  • Britannicus Says:

    Hey, just got back here after a long time. I would love to get a key for both RoC and TFT, can I get those if I send 8.92€ to the PayPal specified? Can I still get the keys within 24 hours and how would I get them? Just via email? :)

  • Britannicus Says:

    Also, I sent you 0.98€ last year, 20th of October, so I would just send you 7.94€ now. :)

  • Daniel "3ICE" Berezvai Says:

    Yes :)

    Edited by 3ICE: Let me clarify:

    The answer to all your questions is Yes.
    Yes, you can still get them.
    Yes, 24 hours. (If my response time of 3 minutes here is anything to represent my reaction speed)
    Yes, via email. Please note that your email address here is specified as "my.spam.1" at gmx, I hope that's more than just your spam trap email :)
    Yes, you did send me 1€ last year.
    Yes, 7.94€ is fine (for two keys).

  • Britannicus Says:

    Sent you 8€ because 7.94 felt cheap, and yes, the email is correct.

    Also, yeah, I was pretty impressed by that reaction time, especially considering the time of day. :D

  • Daniel "3ICE" Berezvai Says:

    Yeah it is 1 am over here. And 4 am according to server time.

  • Britannicus Says:

    Just sent it to the PayPal. :)

  • Daniel "3ICE" Berezvai Says:


    Donation of 8€ arrived, I'll email you the keys as soon as I verify for you that they're working as expected.

    I have lots of keys, so you get to pick the type. (I probably can't give you a perfect key, obviously. But a Good key is still perfectly suitable.)

    Perfect keys:
    • Never used (Not even to install the game. From pristine, boxed copies of WarCraft III. Never opened, still in original packaging.)
    • Not claimed (I cannot test this unless I have access to your bnet account - the only way to test is by trying to claim the keys and as soon as I do that they become claimed. Also; Selling bnet accounts is riskier than selling keys.)

    Good keys:
    • Claimed but not used by anyone anymore (Most of my keys come from players who have quit. But they probably registered it on their account previously, so the key is "claimed" now. Can still be used to play online just fine though.)
    • Since I cannot test for a key's "claimed" status, good and perfect keys are in the same category, actually.
    • Claimed keys can be sold by trading the entire battlenet account they're registered with. I do not do this kind of trading though.

    Okay keys:
    • In use sometimes (by other players, bots, etc.)

    Bad keys:
    • In use often (hostbots, chatbots, and the occasional spammer and mass loader - usually in use during the day. Most keys I find online are "bad" like this. Risk getting various temp or chat bans, mutes, voided, ladder ban, permaban.)

    Terrible keys:
    • In use always (security and channel moderation bots, always online afk players, and big 24/7 hostbots. I know the key is valid and working, but I've never been able to log in as someone else is always online using it whenever I try. Sometimes I manage to steal a key like this from a 24/7 bot when it is restarted and I log in at the perfect time. The key is easily stolen back if I don't remain online with it though.) Edit: I call this "key sitting". Staying online 24/7 keeps others from using your shared key. Whenever the servers go down there is a huge scramble to be the first one back online with any busy key. In the distant past, usually the person to get home from school first, would get to log in with such a terrible key, the rest played offline or looked for other keys. In the summer, kids would leave their parents' PC on all night (afk-ing), just so they could play online again, tomorrow.

    Not recommended: (for you, or anyone, except maybe mass spammers / lossbotters / other bad people who need lots of keys only for a specific purpose):
    • Ladder banned (Maphackers' keys, after they wasted their second chance)
    • Muted (Chat banned, can still talk in games though)
    • Voided (Can't join channels, but can still whisper players.)
    • Above three can all play custom games, muted/voided people can still ladder (and talk just fine in games) as well.

    Banned keys:
    • Temp ban (1-6 month bans often expire and then become "okay" keys.)
    • Permaban (Can be used to install, no going online though)
    • Disabled keys (Can't even install the game anymore - I don't have any disabled keys yet.)

    Invalid keys:
    • Not a valid CD key (I keep them anyway, you never know…)

  • Britannicus Says:

    Not 100% sure about what exactly those tiers mean, I think Perfect or Good would be best for any normal player right? So I think one of those would be great. :)

  • Daniel "3ICE" Berezvai Says:

    Excellent. A Good key shall show up in your inbox shortly. There's a chance it'll be unclaimed (perfect) too.

  • Britannicus Says:

    Wait, can I download the game from Blizzard via a "Good" key or would that only work with a perfect one?

  • 3ICE Says:

    As of now, a CD key is not required at all, for downloading the installers :) Here is the link for the RoC and TFT (combined) setup:
    Latest version, so 1.29 (soon v1.30!)

    In the past a perfect key was required, as one had to be logged in to an account with Warcraft 3 keys registered before they could download the installers. Not anymore!

    Installing asks for a cd key (any valid key, tier doesn't matter)
    And playing online still needs a high tier key of course.
    Good/okay and even bad keys can play online without problems. Except bad keys might have trouble chatting (muted keys) or get the occasional "can't log in, CD key in use" error. (in-use keys) Tip: Try again in an hour.

    I won't share (rehost) the "Warcraft-III-Setup.exe" file itself here, as the downloads are unique (timestamped) and could lead Blizzard back to me. I used to host the old, separate (not combined) installers, from ages ago.

  • Britannicus Says:

    Alright, thank you very much! :)

  • Daniel "3ICE" Berezvai Says:

    So what have you been up to, this past year? Played on any "No CD key required" private servers? Or other games?

    Or is this a second set of keys for a bot?

    Now is the best time to come back, Blizzard started working on new patches again, after a decade of silence. Hiring new developers, even!

  • Britannicus Says:

    Sorry to be asking this many questions, but now the installer doesn't really do anything. I run it and it just says "Starting Warcraft III…" with nothing happening. It has been running for over 5 minutes now and the loading bar isn't changing, no files are being created either. :/

    Wow I feel like an idiot. Seconds after I posted that, it started working. Sorry for the spam.

    Played other games, I wanted to be able to go online if I was gonna play WC3 again. :)

    Sorry to be annoying, but have you sent the email yet? :)

    Edited by 3ICE: Merged triplepost

  • Daniel "3ICE" Berezvai Says:

    Still having trouble testing my TFT keys… But I have selected a good RoC key already. Looks like I'll have to send you only the RoC key for now, and then the TFT key whenever I get things working.

    RoC used to be enough to enjoy Warcraft 3, but nowadays everyone plays on TFT unfortunately. I made all my maps RoC compatible (Takes a lot of extra work, since they're full of TFT-only features.) but today it's all for nothing. Everyone's on TFT anyway.

    I might have to put sale of TFT keys on hold for now :(

    Anyway, this is the email you should have already received:
    (I removed more than half of the key so nobody can guess it "[...]")


    Here is a Good/Perfect RoC CD key:

    In context, the whole line from my database:
    Tier 1, works always: ZG2DWBXH69[...] GOOD, SOLD to Britannicus

    It might be perfect. Let me know if you were able to claim it.
    You can already install and play RoC with it, online. Won't affect the future TFT install negatively in any way.

    Sorry the TFT key's giving me trouble… Will take a while.

    Daniel "3ICE" Berezvai

    p.s.: Proof that this is not just any bad, web-scraped key:
    as seen from 0 results in both searches, this key is not available anywhere online.

    Only you and I have it. (And I marked it as sold in my database.)

  • Britannicus Says:

    Thanks, worked like a charm!

    Not perfect, wasn't able to claim it, sadly.

    Thank you, take your time. When I get the TFT key, where can I activate it? :)

  • Daniel "3ICE" Berezvai Says:

    Is it possible blizzard finally unified TFT and RoC? None of my TFT keys work… See if you can play a TFT map (anything) with your RoC install. Just rename the file (change its extension) from w3x to w3m.

    Full disclosure: You paid a bit more than I expected. This is why I like not specifying a price. People are generous.

    Pay what you want is still my motto. This is just a hobby after all, not my livelihood. And it [deprotecting, hacking, etc. not CD-key selling] is good practice for my programming / project management / assembler / systems classes. (I'm a full time student and my only expense each month is around 20000 HUF [60€] for housing, food, and a bus pass.)

    Of course "is it free then" or "here's 1$" will not fly.
    Example: #comment-1890 above.

    Guy pays 1$ for a Cd key:
    October 8th, 2017 at 5:20 am
    I do not hurry with my replies. (First one after 3 hours, next one 10 days later, even. Scroll down to see those timestamps.)

    Same guy pays 7$ more a year later:
    August 6th, 2018 at 3:32 am

    I immediately reply (within 3 minutes):
    August 6th, 2018 at 3:35 am

    And an hour later email him a good CD key:
    August 6th, 2018 at 4:35 am

  • Britannicus Says:

    TFT maps don't work, and the button to enter a code is still in the main menu, leading to the normal installation menu. :/

  • Daniel "3ICE" Berezvai Says:

    Damn it. I knew it sounded too good to be true. All right, I'll keep trying to fix the TFT key tester then. Go ahead and play on RoC until then. I play exclusively Reign of Chaos maps for fun. (Mostly my own maps… haha)

    Of course I could send you an unknown untested key, but that might be inconvenient. For example you would have to do the testing yourself… And reinstall, if it turns out to be banned / muted or something else equally unpleasant. Because those convenient CD key changers above don't work anymore.

  • MarkSandoval Says:

    Hi. You selling unused cd keys? I'm willing to buy them. But how?


    Does required UNUSED CD KEYS?

    Edited by 3ICE: Merged two comments into one.

  • Daniel "3ICE" Berezvai Says:


    Yeah I'm still selling them. Always undercutting G2A's lowest price by 3$. (And no silly fees like that "G2A buyer protection" scam they're still running.)

    There are many ways, examples can be found in the above comments. The easiest is to send me the money on PayPal and I'll send you the keys in an email reply to the "donation received" notification I'll get.

    You can log onto BNET with any old key. Your friend's, your school's, etc. I'm still using a key I "borrowed" from my local book library. (Yeah they had like 8 games and wc3 was one of them. Board games were available for rent too. Quite modern establishment. Too bad they closed 10 years ago.)


    And this is a huge but…

    I don't want to mislead anyone; You've heard about Warcraft Reforged by now. We'll all be playing that next year anyway. (Unless if flops.) Might as well preorder it now and get free keys for the classic wc3 games. (I hope this is true, never seen Blizzard confirm, but I have seen random reddit posts and in discord a few people say the preorder activates classic war3 on your account.)

    Also I have an old PC, so I will probably need to keep playing classic for performance reasons… Thankfully there's cross-play promised (Though as a developer I have some experience with struggling to make that work for my own, far simpler games. And so with this insight, I fear Blizzard won't be able to deliver us this promise. At least not on launch.)

    The way to buy an unused key from me is as follows;
    • (This step is against the rules) Give me a bnet account you've created.
    • I recommend something with no other games on them just to keep the devil in check; I'm naturally curious and will look around for a while.
    • I will try to log in.
    • Blizzard will likely protect your account.
    • There's a small window you can click the "yeah that was me" button, or forward me the email.
    • Or send me the secret one-time login password / the blizzard authenticator code / whatever security measures will be put in place.
    • Authentiator changes so frequently we might need to do it in a live chat or even video call (Put the code on screen in front of your camera and I'll copy it down as fast as possible… Right after it changes.)
    • I'll then enter the extra security codes and manage to log in.
    • I will try over and over to activate my various cd keys until I find one that was pristine.
    • There's now a cd key on your account.
    • I log off and tell you it is done.
    • (Optional) You change your password to prevent me from logging in again.
    • I'm a professional but this is good practice when account-sharing with strangers.
    • Change your passwords. Always.


    p.s.: If it turns out none of my keys were pristine I'll give you a full refund immediately.
    p.p.s.: If I get locked out of your account we'll wait a few hours and try again. (Because there must be a tight limit on how many times one can try to activate a cd key…)

  • Daniel "3ICE" Berezvai Says:

    Blizzard's Reforged tinkering just broke Reign of Chaos multiplayer!!! They disabled Bnet but as apology gave everyone TFT who already had RoC. News flash Blizzard; Just because I choose to play RoC doesn't mean I don't also own TFT. I played the campaign, it was okay, but now I'm back on RoC. My preferred version of your game. And now you've taken that away from me. Online play is now TFT only.

    But good news; The CD keys are now able to be stored in files:
    roc.w3k - Reign of Chaos (Also unlocks TFT)
    tft.w3k - The Frozen Throne (optional)

    And your name goes in:

    This recent change makes CD key grabbers and changers obsolete as long as you have the 2019 patch. Reforged coming real soon now too!
