Recently a friend told me to clear my cache out to get an addon working. So I went and cleared it as I have dozens of times before this streaming junk. Now I can't login in zones that I haven't been in since the cache clearing without a huge huge wait. The final straw was just now in Uldum. I've restarted dozens of times, let it sit for over TWENTY MINUTES to load in, and the bar creeps along slowly. This is absurd. I can't play like this, and I never had an issue until this new streaming garbage was introduced.

That said, how do I turn it off? I don't want to use the worthless streaming, because it's nothing but problem after problem. I missed a huge guild event tonight because I cant get in. I can't go to new zones without waiting for an hour, and im on 2 MB/s internet. This is intolerable. I want the way the game was. Cata has done nothing but screw this up. So how do I get rid of it?

Zavarra,

I'd guess you deleted the wrong cache folder. It should have been the one under the main World of Warcraft folder, not the one in the Data folder.

By the way, deleting cache data to get an addon to work is not something Blizzard condones or recommends.

In the future, when someone advises you to remove or delete something, rename it instead. That way the game won't use it and you can always rename it back if something goes wrong.

Zavarra,

It's the repair utility kicking in most likely, getting content it discovers it needs as it goes along.

You might be better served reinstalling from the digital client instead. It gets everything that way when it streams.
