No pre-purchase, just a pre-order. However in my country, you don't get any perks such as being able to download the launcher earlier (I read that you can only download/update the launcher before the launch date if you had a pre-order/purchase).
Anyway - after finishing the installation - looks like there's a BIG ASS HELL PATCH waiting. My internet is somewhat so-so (WoW and other online games are playable, not laggy in the least bit), but DOWNLOADS ARE BRUTALLY SUCKTASTIC.
So, how big is the patch download (after disc installation)?

Ive no Idea, but in the same boat. After installing from 2 DVD's the patch does seem massive, still not complete so I cant answer your question though, sorry.
