    What's the current update about?

    I searched for an answer here and on the official forums (which are down atm), so what is the current big update about (11535 files) that is downloading on my computer?

    I don't know, either. We're trying to figure that out right now

    Getting the same thing here, not quite sure what it is.

    EDIT: It's not downloading anything, it's just "updating" files... whatever that means...

    Oh good. I am not the only one who is getting this update. The patch notes simply call out 5.1. Makes me wonder if maybe this adds the warlock quest in to Wrathion (since it was withheld from the original 5.1 release). In any event... it's rather curious.

    Glad I wasn't the only one who got this update. Was starting to get concerned this was something big that they didn't tell us about.

    Might be related to the PVP use trinket change, but they say that's a hotfix... and I doubt that alone would have affected the 9969 files it had to update for me.

    Same thing here, 10383 files being updated. You would think in a gaming community where something like this wouldn't go un-noticed that you would have an explanation ready somewhere. so far this thread is the closest thing i could find.

    That sounds too logical to be true

    I don't know, but it seems things are breaking left and right over at Blizzard.

    I have never had so many disconnects in one night before, and the forums seems to have died.

    Well - I originally thought it might be them patching all the hotfixes into tooltips. But I checked, none of my tooltips have been updated to reflect any of the pre or post 5.1 hotfixes I can see.

    Checked Arcane Blast mana cost stacking and Critical Mass multiplier - both still tooltipped incorrectly.

    maybe its the lock questline files

    yeah right, as if blizzard would put in effort for those of us with a lock.

    Ok everyone listen up Blizzard has finally snapped. I think I got reported yesterday for doing PvP. The Blizzard police came to my door armed with nerf bats, tear gas, kevlar and riot shields. One of them was carrying a black briefcase with the euthanasia shot. They began by simply knocking, and when they realized I saw them they busted the door down and crashed through the windows. I dropped a dollar bill on the ground which distracted them for over an hour as they fought over it, and I escaped within an inch of my life.

    They've gone full metal carny. If you haven't resubscribed this month, defend yourself! They are coming! (>';..;')> (^O.O)

    Implying the class wasn't simplified for MoP and isn't one of the top dps in raids.

    On topic, wondered why wow was using so much bandwith lastnight while playing, didnt even see any launcher downloads though.

    Didn't Warlocks get a massive overhaul for MoP, including changes to their demons?
