I've love to get the game, but am having a hard time, justyfing paying for it and  THEN also paying the monthly download.
Heres the link: http://www.fileplane...wow_nonreg.aspx

It's a 2.8 GB download  I'm not sure if it's for both Macs and PCs but it's a .zip file.  I'm curious so I've tried downloading it.  However, the download keeps dying at around 90 MB.  It's almost like the entire file isn't uploaded to the mirror I'm using.  However, I did try unzipping one of the incomplete zip files and a .DS_Store file was one of the files unzipped, so it just might have a Mac and PC executable.  It would make sense to have both.


Confirmed, it includes a Mac version of the installer app.  However, it only includes the PC 1.8.0 patch.  Looks like Mac users will have to download that patch separately.

When you first start up an unpatched version of the game, it downloads the current patch (or the most recent patches if there are several).  So you shouldn't have to take any extra steps once you download the trial, but you should plan to wait a bit for the additional download.

The Sept PC Gamer magazine advertised a 14 day WoW demo included on the disk that comes with it . I asked around and was told (unverifed), that there is a Mac shortcut and the trial works on the Mac. I believe the link in the first thread refers to the same trial.

I'd recommend torrenting the WoW DVD, patching, and then looking at how to log in.
