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

Everything - 64bit version.

What does not



1. Version 7.3 needs Overwatch version of Wine, otherwise Wow.exe will crash. (You can find it on github, or if you prefer pre-compiled version (I found just 64-bit packages), you may install Lutris - Open Gaming Platform, and there is option to install runner. After installation you will find it in ~/.local/share/lutris/runners/wine/ - you may manually apply it to system, or copy to PlayOnLinux runners folder (~/.PlayOnLinux/wine/linux-amd64/).

2. If you want to use wine-staging features (witch are also in overwatch version) like CMTS, you probably need to run Wow-64.exe directly. I don't know how it works, but when starts the game, CMTS seems to be disabled. 

3. Handling in game tickets to game-masters is, a bit difficult (need to use external browser with separate session), as game uses system web-engine.

What was not tested
