BETA: Broken Wings


Downloads of the new Beta Build outside the US are broken. Smart money puts the issue around Localisation, and a fix is possible. However, it's not pretty, or simple. Here's a link to the initial 'fix' I was prompted to try, via the EU Forums. This however did not work for me, as was the case for many others, and so searching the same post gave me a second option that did.

Here's what I did to get a 'working' copy:

  1. Delete Beta folder (remembering to save Screenshots ^^)
  2. Deleted Battle Net client (just to be on the safe side)
  3. Reinstalled the Battle Net client.
  4. Went to the Battle Net website and picked the following option from the Download Clients page:

As it's now effectively a three day weekend in the US and I'd not expect anyone to 'fix' this localisation issue until well into next week, hopefully this will give people a chance to play. Of course, it does mean you *might* have an issue with the next Build, but frankly I'll cross that bridge when I come to it. This means I can continue to build my Garrison, and frankly at this point that is all that matters :D

My new Alliance Alchemist thanks the EU Beta Forums for their help in this matter :D

Thank you, come again!

Luckily the work-around posted by Gralle worked for me ... although I suspect problems may arise in the future as, although I can now get into Beta, it does come up with an error message on my first attempt each time.

However, as I'm also suffering from a problem logging into my main realm on live (, Beta is keeping my WoW habit in check ... :p
