Hey all.

I just downloaded WoW, BC, and WOTLK, but the patches are being awfully slow. So i was just wondering a few things:
(I need patches up to 3.2.0)
Is it possible to download the patches i require in .zip format? and if so, where should i go to download them?

Also i was wondering if one of you could give me some assistance on manually installing the patches into my world of warcraft folder.

Thanks in advance ^_^

You only have to install WotLK. It has everything prior to that. So there wasn't really a need to download Original WoW or BC.

You can get many of the patches from this site:

Just make sure you get the appropriate version/language packs. Once you download the patch, you can run them from your desktop. You don't need to put them anywhere special.

Do keep in mind 3.3.0 was just released yesterday so many of the patch mirror sites may be getting hit harder than normal. I tend to get mine from the site noted above but wowwiki.com has a whole list of mirror sites.
