What works

Everything is working. Login, playing, raids, and dungeons all run good for my hardware. I get 20-25FPS in Dalaran with all settings maxed, except for shadows. Some times frames will drop, but not below playable levels. Playing with lots of addons, like SpartanUI, Arkinventory, Carbonite, Auctioneer, Sexymap, WIM, Atlas, Atlas Loot, Bartender4, DBM, and Titan Panel

A couple of items:

1) My screen was incredibly choppy (even on the lowest settings).
Things were substantially better after I used winetricks to install:

I mention this to hopefully help remind myself if I have to re-install world of warcraft, at a later date. If someone can point me in the proper direction of how to install those two programs through wine, I can write a script and at least post it here in the comments.

2) I believe it might be useful to note, in the scripts provided on this page, to add a comment that you should run wine in 64 bit mode (it was not obvious to me and I ended up running wine and it made a 32-bit .wine container (which becomes a problem as blizzard phases out 32-bit)). (The scripts are in BASH, as I am sure I am using some Bash specific scripting...maybe...)

The script I run to install the blizzard client is (hopefully, this gets executed only once):

export WINEARCH=win64
${mywinedirectory}/wine "${myclientdownload}"

The script I run to run world of warcraft is (which, if all works well, gets executed a lot...):

export WINEARCH=win64
mywowinstalldirectory="/home/username/.wine/drive_c/Program Files (x86)/World of Warcraft/"
${mywinedirectory}/wine "${mywowinstalldirectory}/Wow.exe"
