Ok so I'm coming back to WoW after a year away from it and I downloaded the patch and whatnot and not this WoW Optimization is taking forever and it doesn't even look like the bar has moved at all. Is this normal?

I started playing again yesterday after a 4 month break and I had to do the optimization thing. It took about 20 minutes or so.

Do you have a decent PC? That could be another issue if your PC is dated.

That could be it since it's doing a number of things to optimize your installation and the likes.

Ok it is now 2:28 am and I had it going since 6pm. WTF it hasn't move since.
I also have it installed to C:\World of Warcraft if that makes any difference.

Jesus, what the hell? o_O

When it's running, is your little light indicating that your processor is working coming on at all?

You may want to contact Blizzard if you can't get it working.

Try closing it and then reopening it.

@Kahroo12012

Just stop it, restart your comp, then try again.
