Thankfully, the solution and cause for error code “Wow51900118” is relatively straightforward. If you see this message whenever you’re trying to play World of Warcraft, the reason is because there’s a current problem with the servers, and the Blizzard team has the servers under maintenance.

We’re not sure how long this maintenance period will last in World of Warcraft, but the error message will continue to appear until all the maintenance has been cleared.

The community team might have shared any maintenance for World of Warcraft, giving players a heads up regarding its reason, or it could have been a surprise. If this is the first you’ve heard regarding any maintenance, there’s a good chance the World of Warcraft servers were taken down unexpectedly, and everyone will need to wait until the team has brought them back up.

I recommend going out of your way to check out the Blizzard CS – The Americas Twitter account, as this team has been exceptionally good at relaying any issues or problems happening to any Blizzard-related products. You might also want to check out the official World of Warcraft Twitter page to see if they’ve provided any patch notes or maintenance times on their page.

Both of these accounts are reliable, and they’re good at updating you on this information, especially for World of Warcraft players. Outside of this and waiting for the World of Warcraft servers to return, unfortunately, there’s little you can do about getting back into the game. The problems are on the developer side of things, so you’ll need to be patient until the maintenance on the servers has ended.
