just wondering i havent played wow since the big patch be4 mop came out, so i go to log in and have a 10gig or wateva patch (which i think is 5.0 or something) so should i download all patches before installing the mop cd i have or just install mop now and worry about patches afterwards
Standard edition retail copy of MoP comes with two DVDs that together contain about 17 GB.
Using some pretty hefty compression techniques this expands out to around 19 GB once installed.
The remaining 1.4 GB is then downloaded.
You still have to download a bit but it's both faster and easier then installing it from patches.
It'll take a while as the first step of the process up to 2% takes a fair while for it to unpack and decompress all the data.
After that's done it should eventually start a download. This will update you to 5.0.5 without needing to do anything else.
It's a lot easier then fooling around with trying to sort out which patches you need to download and install. Less mucking around and the installer can just be left to do it's own thing.

Sorry forgot a few steps :
1) Find your battle.net folder at :
Win 7/8/Vista: "C:\ProgramData\Battle.net"
Windows XP: "C:\Document and settings\All Users\Application Data\Battle.net"
And delete it.
2) Delete or rename your old World of Warcraft folder
3) Then start the install again.
