This ZIP archive contains the latest Classic Beta client that I used myself for working on my UI. If the CASC Explorer way is too tedious, giving you problems or you just want to get in straight away. Use the following link:
You can now directly head to the section called 'Preparing your World of Warcraft installation for the World of Warcraft Classic Beta client'.
Download the latest available release of CASC Explorer.
Extract the contents of the archive anywhere to your liking.
Go to 'File', 'Open Online Storage', 'WoW Classic (Beta)' (The 'WoW Classic (Beta)' client has been updated more recently than the 'WoW Classic' client according to https://wow.tools/builds/).
Double click the only available option in the newly shown window.
A new window will appear that will download a few files. This may take anywhere from a few seconds to minutes depending on your connection and location.
Once it is done the main window of CASC Explorer will show a bunch of files in a tree structure.
Go to 'Tools', 'Extract Install Files'.
Wait for the extraction process to complete.
Once the process has completed a new folder will have been created in the CAS Explorer directory called 'data'. Step into its contents until you find the 'install_files' directory.
Browse to your World of Warcraft Retail client directory.
Create a new directory called '_classicbeta'.
Copy the files from the '_install_files' directory into the directory that you just created.
Download the latest available release of Arctium WoW Sandbox Downloader from the Arctium project website.
Place it in your World of Warcraft Retail client directory.
Run 'Arctium WoW Sandbox Downloader.exe' and decide for yourself if you're willing to agree to the terms stated.
After hitting 'Agree' it will communicate with the Arctium server, followed up with the following screen.
Click on 'Classic' and wait for the process to finish.
A new folder called 'Arctium' has been created. A new window should automatically open up. If not step into its contents until you find the 'Classic' directory.
Copy the files that are located inside this directory to your World of Warcraft Retail client directory.
Run the 'Arctium WoW Sandbox.exe' executable and wait for it to boot up the sandbox environment.
Run the 'Arctium WoW Client Launcher.exe' executable which will popup another window with a message.
After 5 seconds the World of Warcraft Classic beta client will start asking you for your regional preferences. Choose English (US) or English (EU) and hit ok.
Confirm your choice in the popup window that follows.
This step is important for the Arctium launcher to make your World of Warcraft Classic Beta installation aware of the sandbox environment.
Close the World of Warcraft Beta client after it has started up and run the 'Arctium WoW Client Launcher.exe' executable again. The game will now start and you can login.
