Impressive patcher. Five threads and bottlenecked by my SSD. Nice.

Unfortunately, you apparently need more than 12GB free to PATCH. I'm moving all my shit to a hard drive so I can patch, then copying it all back

same I had to basically strip my SSD down to just windows in order to fit the patch on there, so retarded.

cool story, bro.

Today, people will be bitching about the patch taking too long to apply rather than the servers being down

As a side effect, I imagine it will be a little easier on the servers because everyone won't be logging in all at once. Its still gobbling on my i7 and rough math tells me that the total patch time will be ~2 hours. Depending on hardware and when people launch the game to patch, there will be a pretty big spread for when people can actually start getting on the servers.

edit: Used a total of 36.9 GB before dropping back down to 21.1 GB. I caught it literally seconds before the patch closed. (At 94% )

edit2: Another 1.3(?) GB to download. Looks like a direct download, it immediately maxed out my connection.

I doubt we'll see servers before 8pm tonight or so if history and major blizzard patches has taught us anything.

Reading over the patch notes and other stuff, one thing I really don't get:

Spirit - This stat should only be found on healing gear. Non-healing casters have other systems in place to regenerate mana.

Now, since casters get 1 to 1 hit/spirit conversion with talents, why the hell wouldn't you just take spirit gear over hit gear? More mana regen and no problems hitting hastecap.

Seems weird to me.

Yes, I did the same thing O.o when I saw spirit talents in the shadow priest tree, it's like make up your fucking mind blizzard you are confusing the shit out of me.

I heard about the hit/spirit thing and assumed they were canning +hit (edit: on caster gear) altogether. If not, my only guess would be the flexibility of reforging the green +hit into something else.

edit: http://cata.wowhead.com/items=4.1?fi...rs=4:1;crv=0:0 :iiam:
edit eleventy: No +hit gear has spirit. Maybe this is similar to ele+resto shamans's crit vs. mp5 gear?

this might be a long shot but... has anyone had their keyboard die during patching?

I was at about 20% when my keyboard stopped working... reseating the cables didn't make a difference.

And the blizzard updater is the only new "variable" on my computer.

<edit> probably just spyware or something

Regarding downtime:
I don't mean to beat a dead horse, honest question, could there be some sort of managerial or contractual reason that they don't give accurate downtimes? I don't think anyone actually expected to do anything tonight, even with the servers going down earlier and coming up at "3pm."

Wouldn't they get less rage if they said "Hay we're giving you half of the next expansion for free, servers'll be down for a day" then having a "surprise! everything went well, we're back up sooner than we thought!" and make everyone cheer?

Everybody knows its going to take longer than twelve hours. Is there some underlying reason why they can't just say it?

Stringing you along builds up the excitement for the new patch.
