How to get WOW on another computer?

Customer Support
Hi. My motherboard went wonky on the laptop i played WOW on. How to I get all of the components onto another computer? Hopefully, I don't have to repurchase. I have the cd and keys for all but Cataclysm (that one I purchased digitally when it was on sale). Any push in the right direction would be greatly appreciated!
You don't need any disks or keys. All you need to do is to download the installer from here:
https://us.battle.net/account/download/

Once it's installed, log in, and you're set. If the game needs any more data beyond the initial download, it will do it on the fly. If you end up entering a zone where there isn't much game data available (and things start disappearing or having no textures), you can back out to the launcher, and the download will continue.

Hey there,

If you click on "Account" above you will find the different game clients that you will need to install. No, there is no need to purchase anything- Blizzard knows you already bought it once and makes it available to download wherever you see fit.

I hope it doesn't take too long. Have fun.
Thanks!!
You know you can bypass the entire installer, just by copying your old wow folder over to the new machine. It should save some time. Just delete the wtf and cache to reset the setting for the new computer.
This is an excellent question, and an excellent anwser, I learned something for sure =D!

Place it on a USB drive. and you can play it on any PC you want.


While normally a good option, I suspect that if the motherboard in a laptop is "wonky", the OP will not be able to take advantage of that particular option.
