Like i posted on my other thread, that i have dial-up and a cheap cpu. I'm wondering, what if i do decide to buy WoW? How long will it take me to download the whole patch before logging on and getting the game running? Some1 told me it was 300Mb, but that was 1 year ago. Is it still 300MB or more? Also i wanna know, while i'm doing the patches, what if my internet connection gets lost for some reason, or my cpu restarts all of a sudden, is it possible to continue the download from where I left of? Thx get back at me Asap. :cool:

The current full patch from install version 1.2 to current version 1.10.1 is around 400mB. That will take you a long time. However, if you disconnect ot whatever, the patching does start from where you left off.

Hey, Blitzkrieg, thx. I also wanna ask 1 more quick question. I live in Ny Queens, USA. And if i buy WoW from best buy or w/e, will the game version i buy be like 1.5 or 1.6 because some1 told me that nowadays they sell WoW with some patch upgrades. Just wanted to know if it's true. Thx :)

Not sure, as I don't live in USA myself. Best to go to the shop or ring them up and ask.
