Installing, patching, downloading full client using launcher, entering the game, creating character, the gameplay intself.
What does not
Didnt find anything
What was not tested
1. Followed the guide posted here https://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=26128&iTestingId=86100 2. Installed wine 1.7.38-staging 3. Accidentally (!!!) I installed TERA to the wrong wine prefix already used by other game which I created following this link http://www.reddit.com/r/Warframe/comments/1dnnoj/warframe_on_linux/ I used only steps 1-5, so you need to install only d3dx9 and xact. You still need to create certificate from the guide in step 1. 4. Installed TERA using wine-1.7.38-staging. 5. Just runned the launcher. Everything went ok. Before running the game you need to delete /dev/input/js0 (and maybe type "xset r off" in terminal, if deleting file wont help) or the game will "find" a gamepad and you mouse cursor will continuously move to top left corner. Also after you click Play there will appear small window with some text about 3GB, better close it fast, or the game may freeze. Sometimes (but very rare) i get the Steamsupport.dll error or Error downloading metafile - restarting laucher solves it. Also sometimes laucher wont exit after clicking Exit button, just kill the process. And its process still works after the game is loaded - better kill it to free your CPU power. I hope reading this didnt cause too much pain for your eyes, English insnt my native language, but I tried to do my best:)

Couple of items to note:
1. Need 32bit PREFIX, I could not get 64bit PREFIX working even if patches. I used a 32bit virtual machine to build. You could also build in a chroot. Seewiki.winehq.org/WineOn64bit for more information. # TODO: need to confirm
2. The default Windows XP profile does not seem to work (at least with wine-staging-1.8.9), after I changed to Win 7 profile, the launcher started to work.
Winetricks installed in my PREFIX:
As of 24.01.2015, it seems that wine-staging build is required in order to launch TERA-launcher.exe properly. It can be found at https://github.com/wine-compholio/wine-staging
It will still not work though, you need to remove boost_interprocess stuff (which then will get recreated, so this is required for every launch), by executing rm ~/.wine/drive_c/users/Public/Application\ Data/boost_interprocess/* or whatever is correct for your env.
Performance seems to stutter quite a bit due the Flash based HUD, which can be tested by hiding the HUD using ctrl+z (default keybinding).
There is another performance related problem, where most actions lags quite a bit behind due the UI being fairly slow. Hiding the clock and FPS counter makes the UI more responsive, so disabling these two settings is suggested.
Installing new Flash with winetricks
sh winetricks flash
seems to help by few FPS points.
Removing mini map (N key by default) also seems to help by few FPS.
