I just wanted to let you all know that if you start your patchers now, you will be able to download the latest and greatest so that you're ready for tomorrow mornings big event! Everyone here is incredibly excited, and we can't wait to see you all in-game tomorrow!
Patchnotes would only make sense, if all other would know the "before" state of the game (which mostly all of us do, i know) but as we all start kinda "fresh", this is now the new starting point. I think from now on, we will get patchnotes, for every patch which will come from now on, but not for the "old" one(s).
Ok, how do I point the patcher to the correct file location? I did a fresh windows install today and the patcher is trying to re-download then entire 10gb even though my game was on a separate HD.
It depends on the version of windows you are using. However, I would simply look for the folder that it started to put files into and move the files from your separate HD there. Then repatch and it should have everything it needs.
