K, so 1 megabit then (he said 100kb)

Xcato; if a friend has it downloaded then put the patch on a flash drive. Alternatively, I don't think you'll need to patch to 4.X once Cata is released. So you can just wait. Make sure you buy a hard-copy of the game though.

Way to be behind the news... That's been in and out of court, with settlements, and new 200Gb bandwidth caps.

I just pulled down the 9 Gb client on my wife's machine last night in about an hour and a half; that's averaging ~3MB/s (~25Mb/s) with Comcast's D3 enhanced Blast! tier of service.

Edit* can I just copy the files from my laptop which have WoW installed, and stick them onto my new desktop? Would that be possible/way faster?
Yes but run the repair, things will be missing and need to be put in proper locations.

Can you post the direct path to the files I will need to store on the flash drive? I have window's 7 if that makes a difference on the pathing.

he doesn't need the whole thing, moving the right patch files in the update folder and then running the blizzard updater should knock out most of the download.

I'm usually not one to even try because there are always people on my server that do this with way more help and motivation than me. A person in my guild is going to try for server first cooking I believe, she wants to get Paladin too but this guy will get it guaranteed. This person has been known to have no life at all dating back to original wow beta and release. He was server first rank 14, server first 70, server first 80, guild with server first magic seeker, naxx, etc. My guild beat his to 0 yogg 1st though, so I guess thats one way I beat him. I used to be in his guild and he did nothing but cyber in vent with some chick all night, it was pretty sad.
