So I tried logging in today. Yesterday 2/5/13, they did maintenance, and i think there was a small patch download, as i have found out to be 5.1.0a . unfortunately I am on a college wifi which blocks all blizzard downloads, so i have to use a patch mirror. Can anyone find a working one for me, and tell me how to use it? I found one on wowpedia for the small patch and downloaded the zip, but i am clueless after that. I tried dragging the zip into the application itself but what should be the loading screen, just says initializing and doesnt continue further.

When you download the zip file and extract it you will generally see an executable file that you can use to update the client. Windows has a built in zip file extraction and viewing so it should be no problem to do this. . . if you want you can look up 7zip and use that program as it is free and opensource.

Your college is likely blocking all p2p ports so you may still be able to download by opening the WoW launcher then clicking on "options" and then "downloader preferences" and finally uncheck the box that says "enable peer to peer transfer" Save the changes by clicking ok and then close the launcher and open it back up again. Hopefully the HTTP download will function through the client and you can still patch but this will be a bit slower on very large patches as you will only be able to use a limited amount of bandwidth to download the patch.

      So uhm, first post here and i take the opportunity to take you guys through my fabulous journey into "breaking" the tavern brawl this morning.
       
      So i get on that six-shooter tavern brawl with a mage decklist ( just cause i need them gold from quest ya know :D ) and on my second or third game,
       
      I play Research Project my opponent had then 10 cards in hand and draws for the turn, but no deck refill.... He then plays Barnes, no minion comes up from the battlecry. so it aint a visual bug. start my turn, play another Research Project, my opponent fatigues for 1+2, i can then OTK him with my 0 costs spells due to my 4 copies of Sorcerer's Apprentice.
      Fun fact, the tavern brawl clearly says; Make a six-card deck and duel! Don't worry - when you're out of cards you get a free reload!.
      Can anyone recall to this happening to them or no one had the cojones to mill?

      Hi
      I am currently looking for people to pop into my streams and see if I can improve my dps rotation and all around wow play. Any feedback is appreciated

      So I've got these two specific items. The ACI is one of the most used trinkets on shadow priest, but compared to the Infernal, it has a low ilvl. The effect of Infernal stacks every second, and since critical strike is now the bis stat for shadow priest,  which one of the trinkets would you pick? 🙂
       
      Thanks in advance! 🙂

      Hi all,
      Im not sure where to post this but im hoping someone can help or at least point me in the right direction.
      TL;DR - My DPS is awful and i want to increase it
      I played fire & frost spec back in cata upto 85 and have recently got back into WoW again and finally realised what people talk about when they play "end game" i wish id known about raiding sooner!
      However, My DPS isnt great at all im eq 959 ilvl but my DPS comes out as low as 8-900 sometimes or i can hold a steady 1.1-1.2M. Simc comes out around 1.7M (obviously in a perfect world) but i still feel im doing something wrong.
      Ive watched videos, read forums and im sure my rotation is right. Im using Flask, Food and Runes and Pre-potting. I have some logs here of garothi.

      and this is my Raider.io - https://raider.io/characters/eu/twisting-nether/Buksh
      Not sure if ive posted this in the right place OR if ive given enough info to help. but anything would be hugely appreciated.
