Iv'e followed these steps numerous times. I cannot even load the Launcher for it is unresponsive, and when I click on the WoW app a black screen appears and it seems like in a couple seconds the log in screen will appear, but it does not, instead it quits and I get the error message bellow,

Need the full error not just part of it.

Should be able to find it the Errors folder of the wow folder. Post the latest.

Try replacing the application programs in your wow folder with the ones from this mirror :

http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/3988231388

Then open from the launcher.

If you're getting one of these errors the steps to fix it are in first post, if it's not an assertion crash, then it's a different issue entirely.

I have the same issue, game freezes on loading screen. I tried deleting the cache files, the patch files, running the repair app and downloading the patch again. I waited until the loader finished installing everything including the non-critical updates. I can't get past the loading screen. I even uninstalled Wow completely and reinstalled it, I have been trying to get on for days. I am getting so frustrated If I don't get a resolution soon I am going to cancel my subscription. I haven't been able to play since this patch.
