    how big is the D3 Beta client download?

    I just got a mail from Blizzard stating that i got access to the "Diablo 3 Closed Public Beta Test". it's an official mail, because it looks exactly the same as the one from the sticky, and it doesn't have a link to a fake Battle.net.

    now, before i start downloading it, i need to know how many gigabytes this thing is. i've googled it abit, and i can't find anything about it. so, how big is it exactly? i'm not worried about download limits, because last month i had 10 GB spare, even after downloading the MoP Beta (no invite yet) and the DCUO client. I just want to make sure it's not a massively big amount, like 30 GB.
    Because I want to say this every single day but don't want it to get a drag:
    1) The ingame store will only sell timesaver items. It won't affect balance.
    2) No, getting to 100 in half the time isn't pay2win. raids don't start until the second week, everyone has time to get there.
    4) getting charms faster is also not pay2win. getting those is easy, but not everyone has the time or want for dailies.

    I just started the launcher, and it told me it needed 15 GB available. so either it needs a lot of unpacking space, or something is wrong.

    For me the launcher said to download 2.8gb at first so try restart the launcher or just keep it running and see where it stops ?

    will be 15gb afaik.
    beta is 3,83gb
    installer is atm 7,xx gb ( http://i.imgur.com/ZxcI5.jpg )
    wouldnt consider to start the game until it is full downloaded anyway (if they decide to let us use the streaming client), you will otherwise notice huge fps losses until it is downloaded completely (atleast it was in beta like this)
