MMO-Champion - Patch 4.3 now available on the Background Downloader
Patch 4.3 now available on the Background Downloader
In an effort to save my PM box from imploding, I had to do a breaking news to tell everyone that the Patch 4.3.0 is now available on the background downloader for both EU and US players.

It doesn't actually mean much, it just means that we reached the point where Blizzard is comfortable enough to release most of the static assets to the live client while they finish polishing the PTR one. There was no release candidate build on the test realms and I don't really see the patch happening right now, you can all calm down.

    Mine finished last night uneventfully. Like others said, no bar in the Launcher while it was going, just text saying it was. 14.5G to 15.3G... 800 megs or so, whoo. Looks like it also grabbed 19 megs this morning for Updates\wow-0-14545-Win-final.MPQ. Interesting it's labelled "final" with a build no. of 14545 when PTR is 14942?

    I'm in EU and all my launcher is doing is applying non-critical updates.

    It needs a lot of work with what is on the PTR. Remember the inhouse build is 2-4 builds ahead of the PTR. So what bugs and issues might be existant now could have already been squashed.

    Pretty much the same for me. Anyway, we need to wait at least another couple of weeks for a release, so plenty of time to get it

    They're not even done with encounter testing, this is in no way a release build.
