I was looking at getting back into this game but upon reinstalling I found out I need around 4.5gb of patches to get this game up to date which would eat around half my monthly datacap. Has the version thats for sale been updated at all? or it still a good idea to find a cafenet wi-fi spot, pay $10 and download all the patches and keep a copy on a dvd-r?

I doubt you could get 4.5GB for $10 at CafeNet hotspots. They charge $20 for 70MB!

There is an option called Cafenet GoAllDay which is $10 for 24hrs access, or GoAllWeek which is $50 for 7 days use. No word on those sections about data limits

Their terms and conditions say:


  • "The Go24 and GoAllWeek Passes are not designed for extremely heavy users, particularly using peer-to-peer applications constantly. There may be a small number of users who consistently use the network to the detriment of other users. In order to protect the experience of the vast majority of users, if we deem that your use is unfairly affecting other users we will either restrict or suspend your access. "


  • I think if you download 4.5GB in a single day they might want to talk to you.... In a week it would pass, I guess. But who knows of any limits, really?

    And when you download WoW patches, aren't they done P2P?

    Got any friends with WoW?  If so just take a copy of their WoW directory.  Should then be all updated.  Whats all I ever do if I want to play again.

    What patches do you need, and where are you located?

    Yea, I use to always download the patches and then put them on USB key and copy to my mates PC's or vise versa, who ever got in first.

    The reason the patches are so large is because of the integration for the new expansion, which has changed everything about the game dynamics and skill/talent structures.

    Essentially, everyone is relearning their characters.

    edit: The most recent expansion = 1.2GB + 600MB bug fix patch
