Patch 4.3.3 breaks the current 64-bit WoW client

Blizzard giveth, and Blizzard taketh away! While many people have enjoyed the splendor that is the 64-bit client for World of Warcraft, it seems that the upcoming patch 4.3.3 is going to break it, forcing users back down to the 32-bit client. To make matters worse we don't know how long it will be until we get another functional 64-client.

If you were previously running the 64-bit client, according to Blizzard you need to delete the following files in order for the patch to work properly. 

  • Wow-64.exe
  • MovieProxy.exe
  • Battle.net-64.dll
  • World of Warcraft-64.app

For more information be sure to check the support website.

Relax bro, the 64-bit one is still in testing.

Just delete these 3 files:
  • WoW-64.exe
  • Battle.net-64.dll
  • MovieProxy.exe

Then download this and extract to your WoW folder (notice this IS AN OFFICIAL battle.net media link):

-Did you really think Blizzard wouldn't have had this ready on Patch Day?
