What was not tested
Creating a character
Followed test's steps.. 1.) Install in wine 1.5.0. 2.) Install vcrun2008 (from winetricks) 3.) Install dxfullsetup (from winetricks) I didn't change anything else to get the game to run. Setting the "Low Quality Rendering" bit to either on or off just made the game look really crummy when it was turned off; it didn't effect the performance. I'm using an AMD A8 with a 6570 and the framerate was nearly unplayable. However in Windows I can only run about Medium (balanced) graphical settings anyway so perhaps my setup is underpowered. At any rate, it works.

Winetricks allows you to install:
sh winetricks vcrun2008 d3dx9
Mixy reported the following (taken from the comment below):
To make Glyph working:$ wget -O ~/winetricks winetricks.googlecode.com/svn-history/r1209/trunk/src/winetricks
$ sh ~/winetricks d3dx9_43 d3dcompiler_43 strictdrawordering=enabled
Latest Wine upgrade made atleast my Rift constantly crashing(30 min - 1 hour after playing), but there is a trick to reduce this crashing:
It seems to degrade performance a bit, but in some places it somehow actually increases it. I guess itâ€™s threading policy of Rift that causes it. The impact is barely noticeable by me, tell me if you have other opinions.
This setting also removes rendering artifacts, where all kind of funny white stripes and other ugly particles and planes are shown where they shouldnâ€™t be, to make it ~pixel perfect to what it should be.
