Hi, I'm trying to install the original world of warcraft to my laptop, It all worked perfectly fine and i got it all done, i was able to log in to my account and watch the opening videos. Then it went to the downloading ... page, where it went onto patches, the first patch was done in 20 minuites and it took me to the 'World of warcraft installer' where i'm pretty much certain it was just installing the game all over again but from a client (Which is totally ridiculous as my download speeds are incredibly poor 39.1kb atm!) instead i tried installing WoW The burning crusade discs which seemed to help, i did another 20 minuite patch and for some reason i had exactly the same thing come up only this time its a Burning crusade installer! Its installing all the graphics stuff at the moment as its been on 2% for an hour nearly and i can see all the stuff like DragonOnyxiaSkin.00.skin files going by. What i want to know is, do i really need to go through these?! Its going to take DAYS! to install at this rate and i'm quite sure i never had to go through this before and its never been this slow. I would've asked on the blizzard forums but you need a bloody battle.net account and it wont let me link it to any WoW accounts which sucks.
Hoping for a bloody quick reply as its going to drive me mad!
