Kernel panic when starting WoW -every time-

This started just this past Sunday afternoon. Whenever I launch WoW, either through the launcher or directly from the 32-bit or 64-bit executable, I get a kernel panic. I deleted the World of Warcraft folder and reinstalled from the downloader, still having the same issue.

Machine info:
15" Macbook Pro with Retina Display
2.6 GHz i7
16 GB memory
OS X 10.8.2

My most recent panic log:

I would first try going through our Troubleshooting a Kernel Panic
(Mac)
article and see if it helps.

Other than that, if this happens when WoW launches it could be a bad pref/plist file. When you uninstalled, did you do a full uninstall?

I deleted /Applications/World of Warcraft and /Users/Shared/Battle.net and /Users/Shared/Blizzard. I didn't know about the files in ~/Library/Preferences; deleting ~/Library/Preferences/com.blizzard.* and ~/Library/Preferences/net.battle.* seems to have done the trick as I can now start the client from the launcher without a panic. I'll let it finish downloading and hopefully it will still work. If not I'll open a ticket. Thanks for the help!
