Additional Comments

To get launcher working properly ie8 is needed in a 32 bit prefix. Personally, I got better performance out of putting in "-enablerawinputsupport 0" as "Advanced command line" in options, and checking "Disable on-demand patching". I had to reduce the graphics details to close to the lowest possible, but kept the "render scale" at the top. This was tested on a AMD Radeon HD 6800 graphics card. That could possibly be part of the explanation for bad performance. Previously I had problems with character creation crashing the game. Apparently that was an issue with Pulseaudio on my system. After reinstalling that, that works too.

HowTo / Notes

Because of bug 33495 Neverwinter needs ie8 installed, which currently can only be installed in a 32 bit prefix.
(Alter the prefix path as needed)
WINEPREFIX=/wineprefixes/Neverwinter WINEARCH=win32 winetricks ie8 
Install and launch the game with the same prefix as before. WINEARCH isn't required after this point.
In the options panel of the launcher, it seems to help to check "Disable on-demand patching" and put "-enablerawinputsupport 0" in the "Advanced command line" editbox.

Per discussions below, some people experience a crash running in windowed mode. It seems full screen is more stable with some computer setups.

Only ie8 is needed for this game to install and run now. Previously it was required to install the following: WINEPREFIX=/wineprefixes/Neverwinter winetricks corefonts, d3dx9, msls31, winhttp, wininet, ie8

(Left here in case someone should need them)
