For the love of God! WHY does this take so long?!?! I need my WoW Fix!!!! rassa-frazzed-bricka-bracken Updating!!!!


Please knock off the nonsense.
Servers aren't even up yet, so you couldn't play if you wanted to.

Previous patches just added a new .mpq file and it was done patching.

MoP created a new Expansion .mpq file, and then inserted other files into the main files. This is what takes so long. Instead of having 10 small .mpq files open and 2 large mpq files open, wow will now only need 2 large .mpq files open.

Google it people.

Took me 10-15 seconds to figure out the problem and fix it.

Delete your wtf, interface and temp folders, check for admin priv, try again.

Didn't delete anything just let it do its thing and my patch is now up and running, All servers are still down and Bliz says the ETA is around 1p.m PST so in around 30 mins or so, you guys have plenty of time to patch up.

I had same issue this morning, ran it for over an hour and nothing moved so I stopped it. I stopped my anti-virus and firewall temporarily and tried again and the reconfig took less then 5 minutes, I turned everything back on and just waiting to log in now. If you decide to try this, remember to turn everything back on when finished.
