Hello guys, i thought it might be a good idea to start a topic for the mirrors to the patch tomorrow, so if anyone finds any please post em here, ofc both the partial and full patch mirrors would be great.

If you're still struggling I downloaded mine from this mirror today, pretty fast considering

I'm currently downloading from that site at 120-280bytes/sec.

Estimated time 191hours :(

I got the same (well maybe it was 308bytes/sec :p) when I tried the zip file one... so tried each individually and got about 150kbs/sec

Maybe I should have finished downloading it from there before I posted that, stuck on 350bytes/sec now :(

That site has been spammed around a lot, I imagine it's just being sucked dry bandwidth wise.

Blizzard's own downloader worked fine for me, patch was downloaded within 5 mins :)

Blizzards downloader simply doesn't work for me... at all. I downloaded it from a seperate mirror, unzipped it to the correct directory, but for some reason I can't patch it? Do I have to wait for the maintenance to be over, or is the whole thing just messed up? :(

You downloaded 697MB in 5 mins? ... WTF :P gief your connection ;)

Blizzard Downloader working fine for me too, for a meager 100-150kB/s thought. It would work much better if it automatically limited upload 10-20% from total max upload speed.

Even browsing this forum is a pain during downloading that patch. (Because it doesn't limit bandwidth usage).

Any of you guys who are having problems using a router? Reason I ask is I used to use a Belkin router, download speeds were terrible at best, plus they'd stop completely. I removed the router from my system and went back to a normal DSL modem, downloads fine now.

WoW is fully patched and ready to go, just can't play for goodness knows how long :)

No, its going to work now or not at all.

Today's patch was only 2mbs, the 695 before that was downloaded in the last two weeks, I got today's patch from the Blizzard downloader in just a couple of seconds.

Use a third party product like NetLimiter to limit your outgoing speed, will speed up the download a lot.

Just pointing out Blizzard don't have a clue how P2P works best. If that upload limit was built in on the blizzard downloader it would give all (that are forced to use it) better performance instead of using additional program(s) like NetLimiter.

Try disabling NAT on the router?

Must admit never knew I could, don't even know what it is. I did prefer the router, saved me dialing up my DSL, such a chore it is too :)
