A Quick Question About When D3 is Released

I was wondering if when the game went live, would I have to download a whole new version of D3 or will it just update my beta client? I have never had the opportunity to do a beta test until D3 so I am unsure how this works.

I'm wondering this too.

I hope it will be able to just patch the Beta client over to be usable for release, as downloading the client for Beta took me 30+ hours (slow internet connection).

I would guess the final release client will be at least 3-4x larger, so yeah...
I am one of those who REALLY hope and pray it will be patchable.

It will "probably" require a full download of the game. But I believe that they put the download up a couple of days before release, so you should be good to go on release date.

Of course, you could just use the physical game disc to do it in a fraction of the time.
