What does not
Patching and game.
What was not tested
I tried various ways to get the patcher to work. I installed from my DVD and even a new download from Defiance's web site. With my DVD install, the patcher errors out. With the downloaded install I received the HTTP response 0 message.

(12/9/2016) - Need to install Glyph now. Glyph installs well and works. As for Defiance, if using Wine-staging 1.9.23 it will work for a bit and give the connection to server failed mention. I caould play 9 or so minutes and put the video on my YouTube page.
Old way: I created a new 32bit PREFIX (deleted the beta one) and installed via winetricks: corefonts gdiplus ie8 msls31 pngfilt vcrun2010 winhttp wininet wsh56vb xmllite
