NPCscan cache empty help
Return to board index
I really want to clear my cache, and I have deleted the cache folder and restarted the game, but it didn't work. I have seen on other threads that you need to also delete the WTF folder, but I don't know how that will affect my game. Should I delete the WTF file to completely clear my cache?
deleting the WTF folder wont hurt the game in a major way.
its been a while i did it myself this what i remember.
custom settings are pretty much reset.
think this includes keybinds
char spefic macroes (general account wide macroes will be safe)
interface settings and graphics/sound.
addons are mostly also reset.
there might be more, or some things arent among them.
like i said its been a while since i last reset my WTF folder, so im not 100% anymore what all got reset too default.
The specific file creaturecache.wdb should be all you need to delete.
Make sure you have the correct path to the file/folder.
If you are using Windows 7 here is the path to erase the NPC Cache:
C:>Users>Public>Games>World of Warcraft>Cache>WDB>enUS>creaturecache.wdb
Hope this helps!
oh thats indeed a far better way to do it then what i remembered. ill use that tip also.
thanks, Entropyutd and nightdraco
I get to mine by right clicking the wow icon and selecting open file location. I then find and delete creature cache and npc cache
If you want to clear your creature cache without doing it every time you log in, just go to the folder where the creature cache is and make a folder with the same exact name, should be creaturecache.wdb and everytime you log out of wow it will clear automatically, hope this helps!

WTF has nothing to do with the cache, but holds all game- and addon-related settings. Deleting it won't help with the cache, but will wipe all your addon customizations etc.
