Installation, update, playing, high level content, team so far everything work correctly, will try a stress test of 4 or 5 hours of playing.
fast movement with rogue or archer are now working correctly
What does not
high end texture even on a solid computer
What was not tested
pvp so far, but should work as equal
Rating it Gold because of certain texture that goes black sometime but it certainly come for the proprietary drivers from Apple, Protector Enclaves is computer lagging at a certain time, could be managed by lowering the graphical options, you could ever manage to get to mail box by moving to icewind dale. it might happen an important memory leak, since i'll play in windowed mode, i'll use a memory cleaner ( entering into a low people zone to keep the process safe )

To be sure everything worked fine , i'll completely reinstalled the game, i had a crash at first loading screen after reinstall, seems it corrected itself when using full screen in virtual mode ( in my case 1600x900 ) its specific to mac os , tried on a mac mini and imac 27" both are corrected this way.
the game run smoothly , appart few glitch during loading screen between zone, nothing unpleasant.
Standing where you have downloaded the Arc installer enter this comand: (Alter the prefix and filename as needed)WINEPREFIX=/wineprefixes/Neverwinter wine ArcInstall_v20131010a.exe
Launching Arc When installing Arc, you should have gotten an option for a desktop shortcut, but the manual way of launching Arc would be: (Standing in the folder you installed Arc into. Alter the prefix path as needed)WINEPREFIX=/wineprefixes/Neverwinter wine ArcLauncher.exe
From there you can download and start Neverwinters launcher - Which will update the game and start the actual game.
Windowed mode crashes
Some users have experienced crashes when running in windowed mode. Should that happen for you, try running in full screen mode instead.
Mouse input lagging
If you experience lag when using the mouse, try going to the options panel of the Neverwinter launcher, and add "-enablerawinputsupport 0" in the "Advanced command line" editbox.
Disabling on-demand patching
This is mostly a matter of preference - If you want to force the launcher to update the entire game before you play, head into the options panel of the Neverwinter launcher and check "Disable on-demand patching".
Freezes while on loading screen
There has been problems, with Neverwinter freezing on the loading screen, with a combination of fglrx drivers and wine 1.7 - It isn't quite clear, what exactly triggers that, but downgrading wine, and/or changing fglrx driver versions apparently helps.
