There is little or no chance of the OP being able to hack anything or cheat to gain any unfair advantage in the game. However, emulating servers is illegal in the case of WoW. He should have asked more discreetly about the process of generating such a log file in general.

There's also a couple of paragraphs in the ToU of this site that outline discussion of anything that may infringe on intellectual property rights. I think this clause is there to avoid exactly this kind of discussion.

A group of gamers reverse engineered the network protocol used by Battle.net and Blizzard games, and released a free (under the GNU GPL) Battle.net emulation package called bnetd. With bnetd, a gamer is not required to use the official Battle.net servers to play Blizzard games.
In February of 2002, lawyers retained by Blizzard threatened legal action under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act against the developers of bnetd. Blizzard games are designed to operate online exclusively with a set of Blizzard-controlled servers collectively known as "Battle.net". Battle.net servers include a CD key check as a means of preventing software piracy.
This decision was appealed to the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals, which also ruled in favor of Blizzard/Vivendi on September 1, 2005.
