I used the full client and and a clean WINEPREFIX. (For 64 bit users you will need to add "export WINEARCH=win32" when installing dotnet20).
winetricks vcrun2008 dotnet20
The installer still complained about the 2008 C++ runtime libraries being out of date so I just clicked "yes" for the installer to install an update.
= Playing/Updating =
winetricks d3dx9_36 gdiplus
If the patcher (Launcher.exe) crashes, try starting the client (Alganon.exe), exit it, and then restart the patcher. You may have to do this a few times for the game to fully patch.
I also have corefonts installed but I don't believe they are a needed.
What does not
Some graphical anomalies, for instance, tree leaves flicker when viewed from certain angles, a wavy, watery like effect can be seen on lines that should be ridged, and everything is very dark with no in-game options for adjusting brightness/gamma.
