How to solve the bug of the update stuck on initialization?

Some updates of World of Warcraft may stop downloading or seem abnormally long, several solutions are available to you:

  • Quit launcher Blizzard, even in the taskbar.
  • Open task manager and find occurrences of Update Agent.

Click on it and then press "End task". Relaunch the launcher then relaunch the update, this technique works in 90% of cases. If that doesn't work, the problem is probably not with you, but with Blizzard's install servers.

So stay on the lookout for the official forums of World of Warcraft and Blizzard, they may already be aware of the problem. If this is not the case, we invite you to wait and send a request ticket to Blizzard on their official medium.

Attention, as a reminder, an employee Blizzard will never ask you for your password, never give it out and only trust the official site.
