Copy and Paste is all it takes my friend, and a portable media device large enough to hold wow

Edit: A droid, Iphone, flashdrive or whichever PMD you own would work, just copy and paste the wow folder on to said PMD then c/p into the same place on the new PC, of course with a 2g flashdrive that would take a few trips as I think wow is close to 6 gigs or more.

A network transfer like Aven mentioned would also work just as well. And battlenet does let you redownload WoW and which ever expansion version of the game you have after you register the CD key.

Ok, here is what you need to do. Take your Driod and hook it up to your pc. Copy all your warcraft info onto it, and then transfer it over to your new pc. Bing bang boom, all done.

The auction house is the only balanced form of PvP in the game.

Yes, there is a link to re-download it off of Battle.net. Essentially you just download the Blizzard Downloader and it patches the whole game onto your computer. It takes a while.

If you're on a network you could always share your WoW directory on your old computer and boot it up headless on the network so you can copy the data across onto your new machine.

Eros, the easiest thing for you to do would be to redownload Cata from the battle.net site and then copy your addons folder over from the old computer to the new using a USB drive.

Alternatively, there is something to be said about having a fresh UI to start from again if you have the time to set it all up...

I know your $14.99 entitles you to play the game your way, but the rest of the raid's $359.76 says know your role.

Starting over might also be good if your resolution on the new PC is different then the old one, as you will probably have to move stuff around anyhow.

I don't feel bad for stupid people, I think they should be rounded up and put into camps so as to stop afflicting the rest of us with their stupidity.

Now that I think of it I could download it onto my iPhone I still have 11 gb left in it, however I think downloading it from the battle net site might be easier, also I don't have that manny addons (just dbm, xperl and funny unimportant ones. So I'll just install curse and download them. Thanks for he help guys.
PS this was all wrote on my iPhone bitches.
