You can download a 800~~ mb file, now instead of having to do this when cataclysm is released which saves a small ammount of time.

1) Open up your WTF folder in your WoW folder.

2) Open up Launcher.WTF in notepad.

3) Edit:

Quote

SET accountType "LK"

to

Quote

SET accountType "CT"

4) Open up Config.wtf in Notepad.

5) Edit:

SET accounttype "LK"

to

SET accounttype "CT"

6) Start downloading the 300mb update by starting Launcher.exe

Found this on some other forum, hope this might help (afaik this isnt against the TOS, and it might give you a small head start on your journey to 85 when cata hits)

+rep if it helped :)

It will probably mean that you have to download 300mb less in about 4 weeks...
