I m installing the Battle Chest. It's going on for 11 minutes, but only 0,5% is done.
Is that normal?
The authentication key is to activate my online wow account right?
The installation is in German....I don't speak German...:)
also, how can I change the language in my account on battle.net?
It's all in German.
Hmm, depending on the game version of the Battle Chest CDs (if you even have the physical version) it can take indeed a while, as the game has to update itself to the current version. But, it should reach a higher percentage if you install from CDs/DVDs. Though, if the Battle Chest has a game version below 4.0, it might attempt to download the whole client instead of installing just a portion from the CDs and then re-download most of that anyway.
Since you also purchased Mists of Pandaria, try installing from these CDs, they have the game version 5.0, after that you only have to download a rather small portion (still ~1GB) of the game to reach the current version 5.1
However, it becomes (
) playable at around 30-40%, the lower-level zones are loaded first, so you can attempt to start playing your first character then :) You may notice that some content (character models, item icons and even landscape) is downloaded while you play.
Afterwards, I suggest to start the Launcher (the window that comes up when you select the desktop icon for World of Warcraft) and let it run over the night to finish.
Now I remember you from the other thread, I assume you want to play in French? Or English, just not in German :P
To change the
, go to Options > Game Preferences in the Launcher.
If you mean the language of the
, there's a globe icon in the bottom right with the text "Europa - Deutsch". Click it and select your language of choice. If you live close to the border, it might've recognized you as a computer in Germany and presented you the website in that language ;)
Thanks for the info!
found the language-switch
After it downloaded 2%, it started going faster.
I dl'ed Battle Chest in 45 minutes I think.
I just entered the key's for Catalysm and MoP.
Is there no extra downloading needed from the dvd's?
Also, if you go to battle.net and register your keys there, you can download everything from the website and do not need the disks.
If you install from the disks, it will make you patch between each expansion, whereas downloading from the website, you get the most current release.
As I said, the Mists of Pandaria DVDs will give you a game version that is rather close to the current version. It's better to download 1 GB than to download 23 GB.
Glad to see you're making progress here. I might venture to add that if you use any disc other than the most recent expansion, then the game will have to be optimized which is an automatic process - essentially rewriting some of the data with the updated game version. In some cases, the process can actually take longer than if you started off with the digital installation itself. We typically will refer our customers to download the game client if they do not have the most recent game disc.
