    fairly surprised that no topics have been started about this game but anyways - i was just wondering that since my current pc doesn't have wow on it, when i buy wotlk will i have to install all the patches from wow and bc along with the games or can i just install wow, bc and wotlk and all patches will already be on once i've installed all three games?
    thanks in advance.

    Install original WoW and then there's 5 or 6 patches to bring everything up to date, including TBC.

    Does a crack addict go on the internet to talk about crack?

    No, because he's too busy smoking crack.

    If the patches are on your old hardrive, then transfer them to the new PC and you wont have to download them. You'll still have to install them though obviously.

    Otherwise, yes you're going to have to download and install all of the new patches.


    Stupid o2 internet :mad: not being good enough in North Wales for me to play WoW!! Christmas holiday at home is going to be the longest time I've ever spent on WoW, taking a few hour breaks daily :p:. After that hopefully the internet connection here will be better so I can get back on it!!


    EDIT: To the people who are just posting things about WoW addicts or how crap they think the game is... Keep it to yourself or post it in another thread, because that's not what the OP is asking about at all.

    Yeah, I used to think that you had to download the patches before installing TBC, I was so angry when I found out you didn't :o:

    I wish I had the money to buy WOTLK

    If you're new to WoW, then you will have to buy the original World of Warcraft, TBC, and then buy the new WOTLK. Then you have to spend about 24 hours to let your computer patch the latest updates up to 3.0.3
