Here are the torrents which download directly from Blizzard for the two updates you'll need:

http://a.wirebrain.de/wow/torrent/WoW-3 ... er.torrent
http://a.wirebrain.de/wow/torrent/WoW-3 ... ch.torrent

Here is a link to the torrent which contains the actual enUS DVD that you're going to be buying tomorrow night:

http://www.mininova.org/tor/1997508

That link has been MD5 checked against an actual DVD someone got from a 7-11 (Go 7-11 lol)

At the very least, download the two patches I linked to initially. It'll save you the hassle later.



I have the new client fully patched and ready to go courtesy of these files. Also you can log in now with it, but you obviously can't go to Northrend yet. If you get the files I listed above and install, come midnight all you need to do is register the key on the website and go.
Arthas, we're coming for you. (Eventually)

http://maintankadin.failsafedesign.com/ ... hp?t=16772

they said it doesnt work anymore due to server crashes or somthing, if it is not the same thing then i apologize. If it is still working then ill check it out when i get home from work.
When I was 8 years old, I watched my mother kill a spider with a tea cozy. Many years later I would find out that it wasnt a spider, it was my uncle harold.

If you did not delete the old patches, you won't need to download them again.

Wrath shipps with a lower gameversion than it currently is. You just install (and unpatch it) and afterwards you install those patches you should currently have on your hard disk somewhere in WoW-Folder.

After that there will be a new Patch which we all must download and then you're free to play

Are you referring to the following patches that should exist on your hard drive?

WoW-3.0.1.8820-to-3.0.2.8885-enUS-patch
WoW-3.0.2.8885-to-3.0.2.8905-enUS-patch
WoW-3.0.2.8905-to-3.0.2.8926-enUS-patch
WoW-3.0.2.8916-to-0.0.2.8962-enUS-patch (skip this one?)
WoW-3.0.2.8962-to-0.0.2.8970-enUS-patch (skip this one?)
WoW-3.0.2.8926-to-3.0.2.8982-enUS-patch (??Starts @ 8926?)
WoW-3.0.2.8982-to-3.0.2.9014-enUS-patch
WoW-3.0.2.9014-to-3.0.2.9038-enUS-patch
WoW-3.0.2.9038-to-3.0.2.9061-enUS-patch
WoW-3.0.2.9061-to-3.0.3.9095-enUS-patch

I also have: WoW-3.0.2.9056-to-3.0.3.9183-enUS-patch, which looks like the 2nd torrent in the OP.

Don't ask me, i just recall what a CM posted in a forum few weeks ago that we should not delete those patches after installing because we'll need the same ones for when wrath ships :)

The Wrath of the Lich King DVD contains the installer for patch version 3.0.1. This means installing the expansion will require you to patch back up to the latest version of the game after installation. Since you will have already downloaded all of the patches prior to Wrath of the Lich King's launch, you will not need to download them again, unless you delete them.

Which means, we highly encourage players avoid deleting any 3.0.x patches until after the installation of Wrath of the Lich King.Of course if you would like to hang on to these patch files just in case you need to reinstall the game at a later date, you're free to do so, as it would save you the time of having to re-download them.

The links in THIS thread have all of the files, independent of Blizzard. There is no Blizzard downloader involved.
