advice pls. I want to install WoW on my laptop. I've already… - almost, but not quite, entirely unlike tea
if I had to explain, you wouldn't understand
advice pls.

I want to install WoW on my laptop. I've already downloaded the game client once, and don't want to have to do so again.

Can I just copy over the directory in program files? Or could someone with a DVD burner burn me a copy of the retail disk as a 'backup'?

You can just copy the WOW folder to the new machine just fine...no need to intall.

WoW doesn't like having its core program files moved from one place to another. You can copy/move your WTF and Interface folders to preserve your settings and addons, however.

I've never had any problems just moving the directory, neither have several people I've spoken too. Maybe it's a system setup thing.
