World of Warcraft

World Of Warcraft Legion

Following recent events in the Broken Isles, a link has been created between Azeroth and Kil'jaeden's homeworld of Argus, bringing the Burning Legion closer than ever to destroying Azeroth. In order to stop them once and for all, Illidan and Velen are taking the war directly to the surface of Argus, where they hope to join forces with Alleria, Turalyon, and the Army of the Light to launch an all-out assault on the Legion's primary base of operations.

What works

Running wine 2.21-Staging CSMT Enabled 32 bit prefix 32 bit version of the game.  64 bit and 32 bit versions work in a 64 bit prefix.  I'm getting 30-55 FPS (occaisonally higher) but lowest graphics settings and shaders disabled see Workarounds.  World questing and dungeons work fine.  Also launcher works fine.

What does not

Music when the game is first opened is choppy.


sh winetricks vcrun2013.  sh winetricks to open GUI then click Select the default wineprefix and do these next things:

1) Install a Windows DLL or component:  I installed DXD9 43.

2) Change settings:  glsl=disabled to disable shaders.

I also reduced my graphics from 3 to 1 and reduced my resolution to the lowest widescreen option and refresh rate 50.0 Hz instead of 60 Hz.

What was not tested client chat, raids, and BG's.  Wine with Gallium Nine was not tested on my computer.

Hardware tested


  • GPU: Intel
  • Driver: open source

Additional Comments

I ran my tests in other Ubuntu variants with similar results, Fedora 26 and 27 with poor performance, openSUSE and ArchLinux as well as Gentoo Linux doesn't run the game on my computer as I don't have ATI or nVidia graphics to use Gallium Nine to run.  I have a Dell Inspiron All-in-One made in 2013 running Intel i5 chip with Intel 4600 integrated graphics.
