Seriously, how long does this take to install?

It's been going on since 3. Right now I'm at 96% at 2.8G. I still have to install BC and WotLK. Gah, this is taking forever. I just want to play mah game. :(

after WOTLK installed, prepare for long patch downloads :)

Do you have your Firewall enabled. If you disable it the DL will be a bit faster. All together it took me
about 3 1/2 hours.

When I do an install of this, generally I start it before I go to bed and then hope that its done in the morning.

Of course its difficult. Its called a shortcut; if it was easy, it'd just be "The Way."

Do you have the keys for both expansions?

If so there is a DIRECT DOWNLOAD on the WoW website where it's an all in one installer. It brings you right up to 3.0 with WoTLK fully installed.

From there, there is about an hour to 1.5 hours worth of patches.

I just re-installed fresh on this laptop. It took me 4.5 hours from scratch.

Entire game is on WOTLK disc. you do not need to install original game and BC.

Yeah, if you own Wrath, just install the game from that. It has all three games on it.
#9XugaaPosted 6/1/2009 2:57:40 PM
Install WoW, followed by BC and Wrath - and THEN install the patches. It won't have so much to do.

It'll go faster if you sacrifice your first-born.

I promise.
