Heres a link to the reddit page:
The official link is:
I found it a bit strange that the download is 20 MB on the .exe though instead of 9 but its because the orignal link on reddit was a compressed .zip folder according to certain peoples.
Its the exact same download.
SHOUT OUT TO KENDII FOR ADVISING ME ON MAKING A FAQ
How do you know this is leggit?
The link is under a guildwars2 domain. It starts of with cloudfront.guildwars2.com/etc, also the client looks extremely good and the patcher has a message that welcomes you to the first BWE. If you try to login it states no beta events are available right now.
Where did my files go? HELP!
IF you downloaded without extracting they'll go to your temp folder, I couldn't find this. Best of luck to you. I had to re download it BTW
How bigs the download?
About 13 Gigabytes.
I've downloaded 10 Gigs but it states that its only 36% through the dl?
The percentage is based on how many files you've downloaded. So if you download the biggest files first its going to start of with a lower percentage.
Do you recommend downloading it now or later?
I recommend downloading it now, the downloads are run on Amazons servers(EC2 I think ) and I think they are much faster when less people are doing them.
Why does it say my DL speed is so slow but its so fast?!
For some reason the patcher displays only a 1/3 of your DL speed.
A helpful players quote:
The last version of GW2 was "Gw2 13,835", this one is "Gw2 14,085" - so... I assume this is the BWE client...
