I already own WOW but no longer have it installed on my PC. I have since gained an appreciation of the MMORPG genre and wish to play WOW again. The only thing putting me off is the 24 hour or more update I am now going to have to go through again.
If I was to buy 'The Burning Crusade' and 'Wrath Of Lich King' would I still have to go through with the update or will they be included on the expansions?
Unfortunately you will have to download the new content contained in recent patches 3.1 and 3.11 which have added significant changes to how the game plays which are not included in the retail versions of BC or WOTLK. Well worth the wait in my opinion, even though it is a pain.
