1) Anyone else here currently playing ?

2) How many MB per hour do you go through when playing it ?
Ive seen people saying about 5-10mb an hour depending whats going on (in a raid etc or wandering around with no other players) but want a couple of other opinions....
Dont want to blow my data usage out of the water ;)

Wow uses very little bandwith around 3-8 KB/s when solo or in a party and around 3-15 KB/s in a raid.

KB meaning kilobytes.

One thing you might want to do is turn off the background downloader (which downloads content for new patches in the background) and download the patches manually (dare I say at work lol) from filefront, ausgamer or whatever gaming download site...

Here's an example of the usage while idle in ironforge:

I remember getting averaging anywhere from 10-50 MB per hour. Thats both upload and download.

No longer play WoW.
