Cache?
#1
Quick question I've been meaning to ask for the past.. probably week or two. We all know that purging the cache is good(for reasons.. I can't remember. But the server tells me to!). Well, a while back I did what I -thought- I always used to do.. which was delete the cache folder all together and then next log in it would be there. WELL. It seems it has not returned. I've deleted it completely. At least the folder.

Again, it's been a good.. year and a half or so since I did that whole process, but I'm pretty sure that's what I always did.. Or mebbe I just dumb. Very possible. But anyhoo, for anyone who could possibly at least shed some light on this? I just feel sad panda-like when I see stuff about purging your cache. "But.. but I no has one! /cry"

Thank you in advance and feel free to slap me for stupidity. ^.^

Oh, and before I have to edit, it was the cache folder in the WoW folder. Ya know, same place as the repair and all that good stuff. <nod>

I did that too, once. Try re-making the folder if you completely deleted it, if not, maybe you have two wow folders, and you can copy the one to the other?

But no, your not suppost to delete the Cache folder itself, deleted what's inside, which should be WDB or something of the sort, it remakes itself.

i have always deleted the whole thing
world of warcraft/cache
never had any problems myself, but like, if it doesnt appear and you can still play the game fine i dont see any problem as all it does is record game data
The only way out is down, so when your happy where you are and you need to leave fast your going to find yourself down and out.

Yeah, I never really knew what it did. And I'm semi-OCD I guess, and just going there and it not being there bothered me. Who knows!

To be safe, I would suggest to go to where the .wdb files themselves are and delete them.
For instance, go to WoW -> Cache -> WDB -> enUS (or whatever locale you have) and just Ctrl+A and Delete. Or, you could create a batch file (or just get the one I posted in the Downloads section of the site). One-click cache-purging is nifty.

Try to never just say, "My character isn't interested in that adventure." A lot of people mistake this for good roleplaying, because you are asserting your character's personality. Wrong. Good roleplaying should never bring the game to a screeching halt. One of your jobs as a player is to come up with a reason why your character would be interested in a plot. After all, your personality is entirely in your hands, not the DM's. Come up with a reason why the adventure (or the reward) might appeal to you, no matter how esoteric or roundabout the reasoning. -(Source)
