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.
DONEEE
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.

does download speeds affect this? because my isp is crap and im gettin 512kbps dl speeds....<sigh> dont live in the middle of nowhere if u can help it
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.
ive also done the pre backround download which took me days...crappy dl speeds, if i have to re download the whole patch....ill be ready to gank someone
I'm stuck at 0% too :(
woot nevermind, my download just started and its 473 mbs to download so i dont have to redownload everything. it also went from 0 to instant download start so idk whats goin on, just give it time and it will start, mine took 3 hours to get from 0% to patch download.

Suckish.

thanks for the info

wont make it in time lol
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.
I have been patching for almost 2 hours and am still at 0%. This is so nerve racking!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
