The client launches successfully. Is able to create an icon and docks in the taskbar.
What does not
Remains connecting indefinitely to the Wowhead server. The rest of the UI remains blocked while attempting to connect.
What was not tested
All other functions, as the UI is blocked because it cannot connect.
According to a comment on Wowhead's online forums: "when running the Wowhead_Client.exe with wine it creates a winsock instance and looks up client.wowhead.com according to packet capture the reply from dns comes back as expected then the client tries to do a DLL_THREAD_ATTACH, immediatly does a DLL_THREAD_DETACH and just displays the connecting to wowhead progress bar no connection to the previously looked up IP is started"
