Can I install Mists of Pandaria from the CDs

I havent played since shortly before the latest patch and due to my poor internet I was wondering if I can just install mists of pandaria off of the discs instead of through the downloader. I understand that the MoP content was included in the patch but I wish to download the content off the CD instead to save my self some hours of waiting.

Any help would be appreciated
thank you

That would likely produce MORE of a download.

If you were fully patched, you've got Mists already. Everyone uses the same client.

I have not completed the mist download because i have not been playing recently but now i have bought the CD's and i want to use them to install the game rather than wait for the remaining 6 giga bytes (last time i checked) to download but everytime i put the CD's in it just opens the downloader, any way you can get it to install off the disks rather than the downloader?

Wouldn't it make sense then to not include the CD. Since it'll be out of date in a couple of patches and I guess it does produce more of a download. You could save quite a bit of money to not include the discs.

I have the same question, havent played in a few months, dont have the patch for MoP and bought the CD's thinking it would save me a hell of a lot of download since my internet really isnt the greatest... is there ANY way to avoid this 6 gig download?

6GB isn't that much. You could copy from a friend that has it downloaded, or maybe go to Starbucks and download it.

No, there isn't any way to bypass the 5.0.4 patch since the files on the disks for MoP are 5.0.1.

Where exactly is it telling you that the game is not up to date? If the launcher gives you the PLAY button and says it is up to date, then it is.

Is it possible you mean the Launcher / game is not indicating that you've upgraded your WOW account to MoP? The software, what the Launcher runs, is the same whether someone has a Starter Account, Battle Chest, Cataclysm, or MoP. The account is what controls the access, such as to Pandaria.
