Keeping us busy right till launch isn't so bad. The less idle time we have the less we will delve in speculation!

You think we'll be able to update the beta client for the launch? Or will we have to do a full re-install?

I hope its the first :)

is it a given that they will do a character wipe at the end of beta? since the CE edition gets a week head start on regular edition? i haven't seen anything yet that said that will be the case but was wondering if i just missed it.

I don't feel like finding it, but they have said multiple times that there is a character wipe, but you can keep your names, and save character appearance to your account.

Undoubtedly the latter, but keep in mind that the install disc will have the bulk of the content on it, so there won't be a need to download the 4.6GB main content (the "H" file, if you've dealt with the patch files), just possibly a single file (the "D" file) to pick up any changes since the "H" file was created (with the 8-30 "H" file, the latest "D" file is under 10MB).
