World of Patchcraft is a game you play after you have installed a retail boxed version of WoW
In order to play the game you need to have the latest patches installed. Everytime you try to play WoW
it checks for updates. When it finds that you do not have the latest version the game will download and install the patch.
This process takes almost forever and is refered to as playing the World of Patchcraft.
